My Bagel Manifesto
Cultural change is like a toasted bagel, eventually almost everyone finds it palatable
I like to tell stories that help me come to grips with a world that changes with or without permission. From unraveling conspiracy theory nonsense, to criticising religion, to learning to live in a world where we’ve all decided that bagels don’t really matter, I want to talk about our shifting culture.
A lot of time we talk about culture as if it is something outside of us rather than the result of our combined choices. From the mundane decision of whether or not to toast your bagel to how much you expect other people to conform to your beliefs, we affirm or undermine the way the world works with every decision.
I’ll send a note weekly-ish where I’ll share a story as well as links to other things I’ve recently written. I’ll also provide updates on my book Dragged Into the Light: Truthers, Reptilians, Super Soldiers, and Death Inside an Online Cult.
