Sweeny vs Bard Ep. 13: Communism?
Part of what we are up to, says Alexander Bard, is to retake words that can no longer be spoken.  First we retake God, then we retake Religion, and then .... communism?  In the eve of the upcoming debate between Slavoj Žižek and Jordan Peterson Bard (Capitalism vs Marxism) Bard explains to me why a utopian vision is necessary for the future age which he thinks will have to communistic or perish.    Links to books by Alexander Bard  with Jan Söderqvist: The Futurica Trilogy (2012) Syntheism – Creating God in the Internet Age (2014) Digital Libido - Sex, power and violence in the network society Writing etc by Andrew Sweeny: Patreon Medium Rebel Wisdom Articles Twitter Facebook

This is a wide ranging discussion about the need for mercy and eccentricity in the age of social media witch hunts.  We talk about how ugly perfection is in politics, art, and all aspects of life—how asymmetry, human failure, and wildness are necessary in the path towards human wisdom.  We don't need role models, according to Bard, but people who challenge us.   Links to books by Alexander Bard  with Jan Söderqvist: The Futurica Trilogy (2012) Syntheism – Creating God in the Internet Age (2014) Digital Libido - Sex, power and violence in the network society Writing etc by Andrew Sweeny: Patreon Medium Rebel Wisdom Articles Twitter Facebook

Sweeny vs Bard Ep.8: Tantra and Neo-Tantra
This episode covers tantra which is a very elastic term from the east meaning—more or less— certain kinds spiritual practices that originated in India. We also discuss neo-tantra which was Osho's term for sexual/somatic exercises to liberate the sexually repressed, and we talk about why the Osho cult got so corrupt.
