The Collapse Of Thinking

From comments:

“…As a younger man I recall that second order thinking was fairly common among people in business and the professions. Now its very rare–for example the fact that the covid shutdowns led to economic contraction, ruining lives and ad infinitum eludes the majority of even “experts”. I would suggest that second order thinking is what leads to civilization. Without it–the concept of the future etc cannot be grasped and thus we see many living in a meaningless present distracted by phones, media and consumption.”
