Since the American people have decided* to plunge head on into the most hard-core form of the market state (a.k.a. whatever happens after the nation-state is demolished), the question is: what does it make sense to invest in intellectually? What subjects does it make sense to ponder and discuss?
Here is the list I came up with but feel free to add to it:
1. Personal productivity.
2. Time management.
3. Body and health management.
4. Local politics.
5. Psychological health.
6. Personal relationships in the age of fluidity.
7. How best to eradicate the remains of nation-state mentality from one’s way of seeing the world.
The fight for resources and opportunities in the new state form is on. Those who entertain us on TV are very aware of it and are fighting for their share.
Opportunities are massive but they are different and for different things than the ones we are used to.
* What you decide is not about your rhetoric on the subject but about the result. Whatever Trump says, for instance, about wanting to strengthen the nation-state is useless if his actual actions lead in the opposite direction.
