About this Episode

On this edition of Pensive Politics, Mr. Watson analyzes the inane idea that value creators like Elon Musk, Jeff Bezos, and Bill Gates are exploitative and malevolent for continuing to, well, create value during times when it's in high demand. While many individuals stick to surface-level responses to these critiques, Mr. Watson gives economic, social, and -- most importantly - philosophical reasons to doubt this sophistry.

He also calls Americans - and any other citizen of a politics-driven culture - to examine why they put significance in elections and the overall political system. He addresses the notion that either promote "change" and exhorts his listeners to pursue a different method of impacting the world.
