1. On the Politics of Tolkien. King worship is perhaps the most dangerous human instinct.
2. Waves of Human Change and Ideology
3. Steven Pinker explaining classic style prose. Despite its length, I watched it twice. Highly recommend for anyone who considers themselves a communicator of science.
4. ‘The State Of The Union Is Strong,’ Says Man Responsible For Shielding Nation From Truth
5. More on Hoth. I personally think Darth Vader did pretty well.
