Everything is Fake | The Roundtable Ep. 123

There is a God-shaped hole in the American soul. We’re not going to fill it with tech, or entertainment, or drugs, or violence–but lots of people might try. Big Tech wants the bots to whisper sweet nothings at you, others are on a quest to worship the ultimate superdrug, and still others would simply burn the system down just to feel something. Our editors discuss how we can come back down to reality.

The American Mind presents a range of perspectives. Views are writers’ own and do not necessarily represent those of The Claremont Institute.

The American Mind is a publication of the Claremont Institute, a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization, dedicated to restoring the principles of the American Founding to their rightful, preeminent authority in our national life.
