# Podcast: The Roman Rapist Mindset, measuring your goals and why Euclid’s parallel copy procedure breaks (answer: I did it incorrectly)

This started as one of my Euclid videos, and ended up being an interesting conversation over an entire range of topics. The Euclid parallel copy question got answered, at 01:37:34. The first two hours or so are about the Euclid series as a whole, explaining the idea and what my plans are with the series. The third hour is a more general discussion, the locus of which is the “measuring-your-goals” problem, and how so many problems in the managerialist world are downstream of this simple mistake. I will eventually write a blog post specifically about the MYG problem. If you look around, about 60% of the problems in the world are a direct consequence of it.

Part 2 of this is recorded and I just need to edit it.
