STORIES SAVE SOULS!

https://lbry.tv/@freedomain:b/STORIES-SAVE-SOULS

Dear Stefan:

What are your thoughts about the relationship between stories, reality and virtue? More specifically, I know that it is all right to write stories and to enjoy them, however, I am curious to how far an author should go to represent what they think of reality. (e.g.: taxation is theft, slavery is wrong, China is a communist hellhole etc.) Moreover, what is the point where a piece of fiction becomes a warped, corrupting influence that spreads misery and negativity instead of enjoyment and hope? I know these topics are abstract, but I feel like discussing them would be important for what my next step in life is and I would love to talk with you on this issue.

HOW TO FREE PEOPLE!

Why does grief feel bad, but also a little good?

Is there anyone that you have not worked with yet that you would like to work with in philosophy?

How to do journaling? Any tips or structure or just barf out all thoughts down to a paper?

Stef, our beloved 14-year-old Labrador passed away Friday. Any philosophy tips as I process this grief? While I'm grateful our buddy boy is no longer sick and suffering, I'm also feeling intense sadness, emptiness, and wishing we'd had more time with him. We got him as a puppy, so he was our family member for a very long time. I miss him so much.

Have you read the book Seven Habits of Highly Affected People? If so, any thoughts?

I have a 1.9 month old daughter, that's very precise, who as recently as three weeks ago has noticeably started hitting when she is upset. Me and her mom do not hit her or her brothers. And she's the only child and is cared for at her babysitters who watches her two times a week. She usually will slap when you carry her and she ...

Search Dev Question

I'm tackling a minor engineering problem. Call-ins are quite popular, so I want to make sure searches for them work really well. How many ways can you think of to express that? This is what I have so far:

  • call
  • caller
  • callin
  • call in
  • call-in
  • all of the above followed by "show"

(I'm using natural language to parse these queries but it comes back with inconsistent results, so I need to normalize it in some way.)

Ignoring capital letters and plurals, any other ways that come to mind if you were entering that into a search box?

The Freedomain BullWhale

More interesting than Stefan Molyneux by being more evil:

I assaulted a woman (4 decades ago). I slapped her. I satisfied my own curiosity about that with false answers. I didn’t get confronted with any genuine curiosity. I wasn’t ordered to leave the neighbourhood until I could figure out and amend my inner self and be safe to allow back in the neighbourhood.

I was rewarded with her promise to love me forever, I was rewarded with two children now married, I was rewarded with exciting arguments and exciting sex with (often) synchronised orgasm.

I paid one decade later with a vicious divorce, no love paid by the woman or children - and I am saying this not as a whine but as a caution to all.

When I say: take all out action against the first sign of psychopathy, it’s not just a broken window, not just a harmless slap - I’m not talking theoretically about other people, I am relating how I might have been saved from doing further evil.

Okay after that one decade I learned from that ugly ...
