A Quick Message for Subscribers
Just a little bit of housekeeping for recent arrivals as well as a word of thanks for those kind enough to support my work.
I hope that Thursday has been treating you well.
Back when I began my last feature article - an exploration into how Lawrence Kohlberg’s Theory of Moral Development was made manifest during the Covid Hoax - I was doing so, at least in part, to give my brain a break from the research-intensive (and still ongoing) Klaus Schwab and the Men Who Molded Him series. Much to my surprise, this divergence has proved the most popular thing I’ve written in a while, and so I feel that I should clarify, for anyone who has signed up on the back of it, just why my recent publishing schedule has differed so dramatically from the one outlined in the ‘About’ section.
You see, whenever I first started this Substack, I had intended to produce short, snappy pieces which, in addition to my regular media round-ups, could be pumped out with pretty predictable consistency. Safe to say, it hasn’t exactly panned out that way. Instead, it seems as though every idea I come up with requires substantially more scope (and by extension, a lot more background reading) than I had originally envisaged - a point particularly true of my in-the-works examination of Schwab’s golem-ish chief advisor, Yuval Noah Harari. As anyone familiar with these men will know, the extent of their collective megalomania is nigh on impossible to document within a single article, and although I’ve learned better than to put any firm dates on projects of this scale, I just wanted to let readers know that this sixth and final installment is at last taking shape.
I hope you understand and thanks ever so much for subscribing.
A Special Note to Paid Subscribers.
The other motivation for writing this email was to extend my very sincere gratitude to you guys. It really is nothing short of humbling that anyone enjoys my work enough to help me justify devoting as much time to it as I do, and I wholeheartedly assure you, that means a hell of a lot more than you realize.
I’m also sure you can appreciate, on my part, that your support also comes with a certain sense of responsibility. As outlined above, this Harari piece has been more than something of a challenge - a challenge only exacerbated by the niggling suspicion that I am shortchanging you. It means a great deal that you find value in what I do and so, in short, I’m going to turn off payments for a little while in the hope that alleviating this suspicion will allow the remainder of the article to flow. I’m not sure when I’ll be turning them back on, but what I can say is that will only occur whenever I am certain of producing the volume and quality of work your generosity deserves.
Thanks an awful lot for reading, and even more for making Midnight at the Matinee possible.
