Poulos joins Ben Domenech to discuss Silicon Valley's impact on sex, reproduction, politics, and our humanity.

James Poulos joins Ben Domenech on The Federalist Radio Hour for an in-depth look at how digital technology—and the dominant tech firms—are changing the way Americans live.

“There is a prevalent and sincere belief that people are bad and they cannot be trusted to communicate with each other in an uncontrollable way,” says Poulos. “There is genuine fear that the only way to hold a peaceful world together in a digital age is to build robot masters that are programed with a woke religion to ensure people are pure and virtuous.”
