#198: The Mindfulness Conspiracy
By Mark Isero • Issue #198 • View online
Happy Thursday, loyal readers, and welcome to The Highlighter. Thank you for opening this week’s issue. Today’s lead article questions the merits of mindfulness, arguing that the practice has become a multi-billion dollar industry that commodifies personal reflection and encourages us to ignore the ills of capitalism.
If the idea of reading that article stresses you out, feel free to explore today’s other excellent pieces, ranging from how charter schools have helped white Americans to segregate, how cryptocurrency has helped white South Africans to segregate, and how firearm training courses have helped American teachers feel comfortable with a gun. I hope you find one that pushes your thinking.
Before you get down to reading, I want to thank all of you for being loyal readers of this newsletter. We’ve gotten to a point where I don’t personally know the majority of you.
