What Bret Weinstein Thinks About Basically Everything
Venture Stories
Erik is joined on this episode by Bret Weinstein (@BretWeinstein). He is a biologist and evolutionary theorist. They discuss:- His start in the field of evolutionary biology and how he realized that the big questions everyone thought had been answered actually only seemed that way because the big questions had stopped being asked.- Why two characteristics of a given creature or object cannot be maximized at the same time, and why thinking in terms of trade-offs explains virtually all of biology and society.- Why he says “any utopian is not welcome at the adult table to discuss modern civilization.”- Why we need to get over the idea that we can blueprint a society that works.- Why markets are excellent at telling us how to do things but terrible at telling us what we should want.- Game B and some of the stubs of that idea that exist today that could be built out.- Why “no honorable person would choose to do what natural selection wants us to do.”Remember to apply for the winter vintage of our Network Catalyst accelerator!
