This episode looks at bipartisanship as a compromise between two confusions. We examine critical thinking and how it’s been bred out, generation by generation, defeating us through our own unexamined contradictions. We also look at that strange hybrid of capitalism and
socialism, the consumer democracy. And we explore how Republicans and
Democrats differ on a survey of happiness.
