2:46:00 One of the problems with the hydrogen bomb is that there's no real limit to how big you can make them. _Dr Strangelove_ was amazingly prescient. Bad enough to let the solar genie out of the bottle, but then it turns out to be a bottomless bottle.

2:22:22 This is the first time I've seen Erik completely fail to connect the dots. Before coming here, I listened to his great conversation with Lex Fridman, wherein Erik points out just how much our pseudo-AI programs are already poised to gobble us up. These programs—such as GPT2—identify patterns in whatever you feed them and then they create reality (we are effectively already living inside those systems). If there is such as thing as g, and there is a racial component to the g-signal, these machines are going to find it and use it, unless we expressly design them not to. You can't expressly design a machine not to do something you're too squeamish to even discuss. You simply don't get to wish this away in a mixed human–machine environment.

2:00:00 Erik is not doing enough here to justify his claim of oppression. Because what it really boils down to is inventing a form with three answers. How would you like to be treated?
[ ] male convention
[ ] female convention
[ ] bespoke convention
So what do you do with answer number three? Provide a long written-answer section? But if you were going to do that, you wouldn't be using forms in the first place.

In computer science we have localization (usually written l10n). This deals with clocks and currency, which vary a lot from one country to another. So the question is no longer "what are you?" but rather a long list of small localization tick boxes, if you choose neither omnibus gender category. Apart from bathrooms, much of this is law. "For the purpose of child custody disputes, do you consider yourself to be a man or a woman?" Because the law itself is historically rather binary. And then there's simply fitting yourself into an available category, so as to keep your differences private, should you choose to do so.

Weird dancing cartoons on 11-Hydroxy-Metabolite in a flotation tank? That is the point where this conversation takes off in another direction. Everything shifts into aspects of our existence beyond the capacity of lazy minds who have been trained to sit on the comfortable cushion that Harold Pinter decried in his Nobel Prize acceptance speech.

Until Weinstein actually goes to meet Trump and talks with him, then he should keep his fears to himself.

Eric's a dismal storyteller. Trying too hard verbalising his thought and never a summation. It's like watching a drunk squirrel jumping over branches and systematically crashing into the ground.

Reasons why I downvote:
Actions speak louder than words, if you have something, prove it!... Lot of talk, not much solid stuff.
Touches on a lot of interesting subjects but never really seems to get anywhere. He over complicates a lot of rather simple things. A ton of accusations, without any real evidence seems rather suspicious. He often contradicts himself, and I find many of his arguements rather weak. He moves on from subject to subject to quickly. He could do with a bit of humility, and it would serve him well to remove his ego from his arguements.
I mostly agree with him on what he says, I just believe that he needs to practice how to share his knowledge better, which he clearly has a lot of. I enjoyed the podcast, but I don't feel like I have much to take with me from the podcast.
Tell me what you think!, (Actual arguments please, no personal attacks)

I really enjoyed this podcast and think Eric is an interesting fellow. I am a little disappointed in myself that I’m more prompted to comment on disagreements rather than agreements but I had almost nothing to argue with until his overgeneralized statements about who Republicans are as “people he does not get along with”.
I currently identify as an libertarian and I have flipped back-and-forth between center-right to right throughout my life. I acknowledge that there’s probably more to his disagreement but the two examples he brought up were those where Republicans want to build condos in Yosemite and laughed when baby seals were clubbed on the head.
Eric is clearly intelligent so why were his two best arguments ones that were so weak and overgeneralizing? (I assume his best because those are the ones he chose to use.)
If Republicans in general feel land is to be used while Democrats in general feel land should be preserved who is right? Isn’t there truly a middle ground? I love nature, I love trees and lakes and wildlife and I am truly saddened when nature is destroyed needlessly. But I’m also grateful when there’s a road and a place close to stay to gain easier access to nature.
The notion that Republicans in general laughed when baby seals were clubbed is just absurd.
As you [Joe] correctly described that antifa justifies violence based on the assumption of a generalized falsehood that anyone who disagrees with them is fascist and must be stopped at all cost. Similar only in thought process is to say “I don’t get along with Republicans because they laughed when baby seals are clubbed.”
I wish we were more in a place as a people to say, “While I disagree with your opinion we can be friends/neighbors because I know you’re not a bad person.” Reserve judgment for those on both sides who act with ill intent and seek the wisdom to recognize the difference.
I too loved his comment regarding nuclear power, “We now are God’s but for the wisdom.”
I would like to ask if Trump should be removed from office because you [Eric] can’t trust him with nuclear power. Seeing that he’s been in office for near three years now and has not abused that power. At what point would you have that fear removed or at least acknowledge that this fear is no longer viable?

The party system really has failed in a lot of ways. Im an anarchist but have noticed people will point out the most extreme liberal or conservative views and use that example when its really only a few people on each side and lump them all together. Like liberal states where companies have left the country to save money and abandoned the people (Detroit for example) and not point out the facts that theres more people than jobs. They'll point out how its a "welfare state" and blame Democrats when the free market has failed us. Its just an example but we really need to start being honest with ourselves. Meet in the middle and shed these titles that are tearing us apart. We need to vote people in who care about us not line their pockets ands run attack ads. Lastly treat each other the way you'd treat your neighbor, with respect.

Why should we care if ONE of Eric Weinstein's friends is oppressed? There are 7.5B of us. ONE person's ONE friend is upset? Get the fuck out of here with that.

And he's willing to cede this nonsense BECAUSE it's his friend - it's "close to his heart." That's fine, but it's a terrible way to heard billions of people.

For anyone that disagrees with the overall theme or any chunk of the core/central ideologies discussed in this podcast: Can you please link me (or point out for me) the opposing viewpoints. There’s an un-intuitively high ratio of dislike to like for this video and I would love some insight into the world views of those who find the conversation demeaning, un-instructive, belligerently pseudo-intellectual or anything of that matter. Please, I humbly ask for some perspective :)

We don't need titles that open a door to discrimination. I don't want to put anything on my application that someone will use against me. (or for me, for that matter). My gender is none of their business. As long as I am "top notch" to do the job, then I want a chance. I want to be hired on what I can offer, not put aside by what may sidetrack my career/dedication to/ (according to someone who is possibly predujiced). Joe,, they don't ask "for their statistics", they ask so they can ewed you out based on decrimination. (which they claim is based on statistics). A no win situation for REAL data and fair practices.
If I can't lift 300lbs and the job may need that, then don't hire me (someone who can't lift 300 lbs) just to appear fair. Qualifying should be done during the test/qualifying part of an interview, not in the application process. If I can lift 300 lbs and I can show you, I want that interview and I'm sorry but I don't trust that mrs. or miss or ms. ahead of my name isn't going to predudice the HR dept. or boss into not giving me a chance to prove it. I chose a name for my daughter that won't give away her gender and I shorten my name so people can't know if I'm male or female or tran so my application doesn't get tossed before the interview.

Wow, this guy really needs to pull himself together! It is very sad to see this level of negativity. He only talks about the "woe is me" and only talks about the problems, and no real solutions.
He needs to move into alignment of who he IS; a human capable of joy and love.

Here's an idea: why don't we look at people on their individual abilities. What SJWs don't get is that shutting down some kind of ideology or language is in and of itself an "oppression "
What this gentleman fails to realise is that the same people who allow gender identification also allow the stoning of women, beheading of people who wish to be themselves etc. These things are what we need to combat.
Ideologies come and go through each generation (energy) gap. As long as we look for the truth, that being everything is an illusion, these ideologies change.
Don't force change, allow change to happen 😁
