Vulnerability, truth, and the collective superego
The above video is a chat with Ronan Harrington. Ronan’s position as a leading figure in rethinking meaning systems, his eloquence as a public speaker, and his credentials as a London hipster are impressive to say the least—but this conversations wasn’t about that. Here we tried—and I think succeeded—to go beyond masks, polarisation, ideology and enter instead the liminal space of learning.
Among diverse subjects we discussed were: my critique of his video about Jordan Peterson, the shadow of left and right wing politics, male and female archetypes, social justice and the sovereign individual, vulnerability and truth.
I believe we both felt it was a meaningful conversation and worth sharing. In the end, I was humbled by Ronan’s eloquence and honesty about himself. Rather than be reactive to my criticism, as a lesser person might have been, Ronan helped model the kind of conversation we could all be having.
