How Would Plato PPC? (Part I)
It’s a question of the ages: if Plato were a PPC, how would he go about it? Plato wrote a universe of works on different topics–many lifetimes have been spent only deep-diving into his works and nothing more (although not recently)–but today we will focus on one of his ideas: the Allegory of the Cave.Read more: How Would Plato PPC?

How Would Machiavelli PPC? (Part I)
Machiavelli, oh, Niccolò! The man whose reputation has been defamed in successive centuries since he wrote. A more cynical person might suspect he was defamed on purpose precisely because The Powers That Be wouldn’t want anyone to know how effective a guidebook of his rules could be. But no, not I; I’d never suspect such a thing!Read more: How Would Machiavelli PPC? (Part I)
How Would Wittgenstein PPC?
Ah, Wittgenstein, Wittgenstein, a man who was deeply controversial in his day, with the “genius or madman”–a fraud, fake, or a friggin’ phenomenal genius forever?–debate still raging now, heading on a century later; indeed, in this “Who would they PPC?” series, he will probably be the single most controversial philosopher I’ll dive into.Read more: How Would Wittgenstein PPC?
How Would Nietzsche PPC? (Part I)
A question for the ages: If Friedrich Nietzsche were a PPC, how would he PPC? Nietzsche himself probably paced the halls of the University of Basel wondering, if an all-encompassing knowledge machine existed and he was tasked with ensuring that normies using the all-encompassing knowledge machine would see the results that he (or his patrons?) wants them to see… how would he go about doing so?Read more: How Would Nietzsche PPC? (Part I)
How Would Thomas Hobbes PPC?
Thomas Hobbes (whose dark world view argued for the brutality of the world around us and the necessity of civilization) would have been quite a PPC manager running a Google Ads account. I would hire him. Plato’s too-perfect-in-theory campaigns would probably collapse under the weight of reality, Wittgenstein would probably spend all his time trying to understand how the platform works. But Thomas Hobbes is someone whose world view would map to an awesomely successful account.Read more: How Would Thomas Hobbes PPC?
How Would Seneca PPC?
How, I know what question has been haunting you for the last seconds, days, or perhaps years? “If Seneca were a PPC, what sort of AdWords PPC strategy would he follow?” Yes–stop the presses!–I know this is the question to end all questions on which the future of the world hangs!Read more: How Would Seneca PPC?
