Carter beings with an unusual move: he reads the story of the “good Samaritan” from the Bible, which he uses to explain that there is no such thing as collective morality and that only individuals can act morally (or not). He welcomes supporters of Ukraine to take up arms and go fight if they’d like. Next, he reminds us all of how narrowly the human race has escaped nuclear obliteration in history and suggests that perhaps picking a war with a man in control of the world’s largest nuclear arsenal isn’t the smartest idea. He pauses for a moment to laugh at the woke version of PTSD: “phantom honking,” as well as to take a look at the hypocritical contrast between how ordinary Canadians and ordinary Russians have been treated. Next, he discusses the disturbing ubiquitousness of dichotomous thinking and its relation to Borderline Personality Disorder. Finally, he looks for insight into the question “how close are we to Skynet?” by playing a game with the Unsafe Space chat community: spot the AI-synthesized face. The results are chilling.
