Welcome to Daily Conquest
Conquer the day!
Welcome to Daily Conquest! We’ll be launching the newsletter soon, and you can sign up now so that you don’t miss a single issue.
Daily Conquest will cover culture, politics, public policy, and law from, I hope, a more thoughtful perspective than we get from the click-driven corporate media. We’ll try to ignore the screaming headlines, shouted insults, and the knife fight atmosphere that permeates many online discussions of public affairs and dive a little deeper into what’s happening and why.
We’ll start with a look at some important ideas from the Declaration of Independence, then some thoughts on free speech and freedom of the press, all to lay the groundwork for a series on the current information environment — including the influence of our Online Overlords, the awful media, the rise of “narrative” over truth, and the war on words and meaning.
After that? Well, that’s going to keep us busy for a while, but we won’t run out of things to talk about.
See you soon!
