You remember that movie "The Neverending Story"? I grew up with that movie but didn't realize until much later how "The Nothing", the apocalyptic, all-consuming, evil force threatening to destroy the universe, was such a nice allegory for capitalism. I'll say one thing for "The Nothing" though, it's very efficient at what it does.

My wife and I watched the documentary One Percent the other night. I had to laugh when I heard the segment in this podcast with Peter Buffett and wondered if he too was estranged from his father as his daughter noted in the video that she was.
This is it! Even though you have created an amazing show up to this point, this episode was the best thing you’ve ever done. With this episode, you have reached into my soul and created a cold, wet fist of pointed rage, an organized rage, a rage that seeks nothing but justice and the end of Capitalism. Thank you, Jay.
