‘The Unbroken Thread’

The book of arcane knowledge the techno-capitalists don’t want you to read. The Unbroken Thread is a guided tour of influential thinkers from ancient times to the present, fusing philosophy, religion, self-help, and parenting advice. It is, of course, a work of nonfiction; journalist Sohrab Ahmari wrote it during the annus horribilis of 2020.

The fractured fairy tale of Midsommar

For hundreds of years, pagan civilizations in Mesoamerica, most notably the Aztecs, practiced ritual human sacrifice. So did the ancient Chinese and medieval Celts. Today, we look back on these bloody rites with shocked incomprehension. Surely, if we had been there, we would have protested these grotesque ceremonies, or at least avoided them.

The Banality of Evil

Witnessing the trial of a high-ranking Nazi, Hannah Arendt was struck by the contrast “between the unspeakable horror of the deeds and the undeniable ludicrousness of the man who perpetrated them.”. Something similar is playing out right now on Hulu, in a brilliant comedy series called “What We Do In The Shadows.”.
