Newest Mindgasms Quickie on the social and moral psychologist, Jonathan Haidt talking about the nature of morality on the podcaster, entrepreneur and author, Tim Ferriss’ podcast. It emerges in cultures through the process of evolution. Different societies construct their own unique moral frameworks. There is no such thing as objective morality. Universal moral principles, scientific laws of the universe or conscious entities directing the morality of humans, do not exist. Multiple moral compasses work for different cultures, but this is not the same as moral relativism. Not all moral frameworks are equally good and bad.

Mindgasms Quickie about the famous journalist, Glenn Greenwald recently commenting on declassified C.I.A. documents to do with the J.F.K. assassination. He may be right about the corruption and nefarious purposes of the C.I.A, along with perhaps the popular and possibly true conspiracy theories about the president getting killed. But he’s wrong about his claims that Trump actually fulfilled his anti-establishment and anti-war rhetoric that he was spouting when he was running for the American presidency in 2016.
