The Folly of Liberal History

A recently reemerging idea in the English speaking political landscape is that history is the story of an almost natural progression of humanity into liberty culminating within English and American democracy. This is nonsense. And it also has a name: "whig history" In this video I would like to show you why whig history is bunk, and also detail to you how economic liberties that are so often praised by advocates of whig history, can very often result in the creation of oligarchies that then proceed to undermine and destroy the very economic liberties that created the oligarchy in the first place. ►You can support my channel on Patreon here: https://bit.ly/3OULqH2 ►You can also support me on PayPal here: https://bit.ly/3ubTwTO ►You can support me on ko-fi here: https://bit.ly/3y8Dnzn ►You can follow my twitter here: https://twitter.com/notreallykraut ►You can also follow me on Instagram here: https://bit.ly/3uggiJY ►You can discuss this video on my subreddit: https://bit.ly/3ue5HPM ►You can follow and watch me on twitch here: https://twitter.com/Der_Parrot ►You can join my community, give feedback and talk to me here: https://bit.ly/3y9G7N0 Sponsorship (0:00) Intro (0:56) A short political history of medieval Hungary (2:37) The Hungarian oligarchy ​(3:34) The Decline of Oligarchy (06:00) What is whig history (07:33) The rise and fall of Venice (11:38) Warnings of Oligarchy (16:11) The birth of American Oligarchy (18:05) The death of American Oligarchy (23:34) A warning from History?

BINARY DREAMS: How A.I. Sees the Universe
BINARY DREAMS: How A.I. Sees the Universe
What happens when machines begin to question their origins? In this short film created with generative art, we explore how artificial intelligence sees the universe, its creators, and its potential futures. I believe the emergence of artistic A.I. has touched off a new era for art that could be as profound as the first cave paintings, 50,000 years ago. If these artistic capabilities are possible after only a few decades of A.I., research, what will the next 50,000 years hold? What will we become? Crafted by Melodysheep in collaboration with artificial intelligence.

The only decent fable came out on Xbox in 2004. The music is Norma: Casta Diva by Vincenzo Bellini. If you haven't heard the Maria Callas version, you're in for a treat: https://youtu.be/s-TwMfgaDC8 New Geometry for Ocelots paperback version (you may need to change your region) ► https://bit.ly/37w9obc Other books what I wrote ► https://bit.ly/2LmharC I also make horrendous music ► https://bit.ly/2JM6v6m T-shirts, mugs, and sadness ► https://bit.ly/3p542Y0 For sending personalised insults ► https://bit.ly/3xzYmvZ Help me to do this full-time if you're deranged enough ► https://bit.ly/3MIHCHu An apology if required: I've been a bit quiet of late. Sorry about that. Sometimes a while goes by when nothing worth making turns up. However. A new book will be out in the next few months – not depressing sci-fi for once – and more stuff is coming, promise. If that's something you're waiting for, then thank you kindly for waiting. I'm not sure why you're reading so far down in the description, but thanks for that too. In return, please accept this masterpiece: https://youtu.be/MKp30C3MwVk

Our #DigitalEconomy has experienced several rapid waves of evolution. It began with Dotcom companies, where over exuberance saw fortunes lost when the tech bubble popped. But even before that the search engine emerged. It eventual brought #Google into our daily lives. A fews year down the line, just 15 years ago, #socialmedia also exploded into our live. What will be the next emergence? Perhaps the dominance of video conference sites like Zoom? Nothing about #digitalisation is preditable. In just a few decades the digital economy has changed, reinvents itself and disrupts our lives. It’s exciting, exhilarating and slight frigtening to watch. That’s why I created this #datavisualisation. Music: Jabali by Xack, Epidemic Sounds #digital #economy #tech #digitalization

Great Art Explained: The Milkmaid by Johannes Vermeer
Great Art Explained: The Milkmaid by Johannes Vermeer
By the mid 17th century, the art being produced in Catholic countries had become a powerful tool of propaganda, characterized by a heightened sense of drama, movement, and theatricality that had never been seen before. But in the Protestant Netherlands, a new wave of realism was sweeping across the country. Johannes Vermeer was producing simple domestic interiors of middle-class life. His paintings were quiet, private, and unassuming. Secular works that contained stories of real human relationships.
