# 55 The Revolt of The Public. A conversation with author and former CIA analyst Martin Gurri.
Mar 04, 2023 Season 1 Episode 55
Magnus Toren, host

A wonderful recorded conversation at the Henry Miller Library with  Martin Gurri,  a geopolitical analyst and student of new media and information effects. 

Martin Gurri  spent many years working in the corner of the CIA dedicated to the analysis of open media. From that privileged perch, he watched the global information landscape undergo a transformation so radical as to seem unprecedented in the history of our species.

After leaving government, Gurri focused his research on the motive forces powering this transformation. The result of this labor is The Revolt of the Public and the Crisis of Authority in the New Millennium. He lives in Virginia.

Read the recent (5/23/23)article in Discourse Magazine.

Martin's article from 4/12/23 in the Free Press
(from the Free Press): The SparkNotes version is that the former CIA analyst managed to predict Trump, Brexit, WallStreetBets, Black Lives Matter, the yellow vests protests in France, and more back in 2014. That’s because he saw, ahead of so many, that the central conflict of our era is not between red and blue, but between the elites and the masses, between the tower and the square, between the gatekeepers and the gate-crashers.

Links to a few things we talk about:
Martin Gurri
The Free Press / Bari Weiss
The Revolt of The Public
Postjournalism
Jonathan Haidt

Another interview well worth your attention with Martin Gurri.
"
Gurri’s book doesn’t just point and blame, in the manner of most recent political non-fiction. He asks both the justifiably angry public and those working in hated elite institutions to look inward."
