The Best of Ideas Podcast gets one show uploaded to their server once per week (4 days too few for me), the latest show is called “Utopian Dreams.” It discusses the damage done to the world by utopian idealists.
“The world is strewn with the wreckage of utopian projects. Millions of people have been killed by social engineers who wanted to reshape humanity. The British historian of ideas, John Gray, believes politics is saturated with disguised religious longings. He calls for a new, humane realism.”
Does this Gray guy just sound like a utopian dreamer to you too?
