Which insurgency will YOU join: the plutocrats or the criminal underclass? In this episode, we discuss Dr. Nils Gilman's fascinating paper "The Twin Insurgency" (https://www.the-american-interest.com/2014/06/15/the-twin-insurgency/). Brian takes the lead on the political and historical context of the rise of neoliberalism in the United States, and Lindsey connects the literature on evolved cheater detection mechanisms to political rhetoric. Here's a link to Tomasello's paper The Ultra-Social Animal, which comes up in the second half of the show: https://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/pdf/10.1002/ejsp.2015.
