Great listen. Great insight into Percy. Had me wishing it went on another hour and discussed “Lost in the Cosmos”. Thanks from a fellow wayfarer.

the idea that the "local" exists apart from broader (even international) politics/economics is absurd as is the idea that tiny groups of people can resist the impacts of the Amazons/ALECS of the world is fantasy/fiction.

Nice summary of Percy's thought. I especially appreciate learning (for the first time) of Percy's thinking on language and biological determinism.
