Wherein we lament capitalism's inability to produce anything groundbreaking in the realm of culture and the paltry number of cameras on our iphones.
Show Notes

The slow cancellation of the future has been accompanied by a deflation of expectations, both in the realm of cultural  and -- apparently -- technological production. Culture has crawled to a halt, its progress replaced by advances in methods of distribution. Technology is bogged down in a cycle of adding additional cameras to the iphone.
Has capitalism outlived its progressive potential?
(The TLDR is yes)
