These essays address such key topics in the cultural, political, and intellectual life of our time as the tyranny of exercise, the tyranny of nutrition and food snobbery, the sexualization of childhood (and everything else), the philosophical meaning of Radiohead, the rise and fall of the hipster, the impact of the Occupy Wall Street movement, and the crisis of policing. Four of the selections address, directly and unironically, the meaning of life what might be the right philosophical stance to adopt toward one's self and the world.

Uncanny ways to make everything understandable!
Whether I disagree or not, on Exercise & Nutrition, I found it more than amusing to read. His analysis on music ("non-music" genre as viewed by classic orthodox) appreciation is particularly inspiring. Most political arguments could be supported and radicalized in Social Development History course held in CASS (perhaps during cultural revolution).

I was (boasting) reassured on my philosophical stance toward myself and the world so much as to reach the euphoria.
