In this episode, Alex-Jason talks about the legacies of European Idealism, particularly that of hubris came post French Revolution where radical ideologies flourish giving dawn to a new world of wisdom and Era of enlightenment. Away from the old order of asceticism and static religious conservatism the French Enlightenment exposes us to greater horrors and evil, a twisting radical turn in history with oblivious conceit in the modern world of hyper digital consumerism. In the end the lessons from the past will move forward, Evolution always prevails, and WORK and HOPE always for the future.
