Make the government so weak, there's no benefit in buying them off. Make the government so weak, that they can't pick winners and losers. They are just the referees.

I think it’s funny that people still assume the government are actually in charge.
I also think it’s funny that most people in the government actually think they’re in charge.

I didn't see much about consumerism, but then again, it just seemed to be Russell Brand and some chap waffling on, so I skipped a lot of it.

Its worth the listen, as you need to listen to it all to understand what was debated.

He was debating a neuroscientist Sam Harris.

One of the four horsemen of New Athiesm, as he is defined.
