Q5: 1:16 or so
What advice do you have for staying sane in these crazy times? Your comments on the “start stop” of the economy and society wearing down on people prompted this question. I definitely feel that weariness and disorientation and was wondering if you had any thoughts on how to relieve those feelings, what kinds of relationships and activities would be good to try since COVID-fied society isn’t really avoidable.
Q6: 1:33 or so
The other day I logged on to a social media site for the first time in close to a decade. I noticed very quickly that many people I grew up with were rabidly posting leftist propaganda. I then looked through over a hundred profiles of people I've known over the years. It was the same. This is particularly startling because I live in a low population region in the western US. Is the time for talk over? Is the end of western civilization near? Should I be fleeing to Poland or something? I do not wish for my kids to experience war.
I recall how Stef mentioned he was scared of a Great Dane as a kid from the last call in. What made him like dogs again and what's his favorite breed/mix?
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 ...

Veteran Bitcoin guru Stefan Molyneux takes you through the latest forces shaping the Bitcoin universe.
One of the most jaw-dropping call in shows you will ever hear...
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:
(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?
You saw it here first folks, the BullWhale is a genuine Freedomain original meme.
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 ...

In this episode, we discuss negative economics in parenting, driven by guilt, shame, fear, or obligation. We highlight its unsustainability and potential for rebellion. Instead, we advocate for positive economics, focusing on self-interest, mutual benefit, and building relationships rooted in trust and happiness.
