Joe Rogan show featuring Adam Kokesh of the ‘liberty movement’

2012-07-13 1 comment

I thought this was a sweet interview. This is a short segment.

Here’s the full Joe Rogan podcast:

Content gets good with the guest at about 2:03.

At 2 hours and 20 minutes they are basically debating. Really interesting I though to see Joe Rogan get his mind open to some new ideas (other than that he smoke’s rocks!).

Morpheus is Fighting Neo! – Libertarian Minarchism vs. Anarcho-Capitalism

2012-06-15 3 comments

Depending on what type of logic best tickles your noodle, you might prefer to hash out new ideas through debate. Live, in person argumentation, is not only able to get your heart rate up but it allows you to use your inductive reasoning skills to hone in on potential weaknesses in what your interlocutor is saying, which in turn helps you form ideas of your own.

As far as the greater scheme of political discourse goes, this topic is very much on the fringe. This debate is in the minutia, buried under the tumultuous back and forth of above ground politics. Furthermore, and perhaps because of that, it no longer fits on the left-right spectrum. We are going either up or down now.

Because of the circumstances, exploring the proper ethical and pragmatic boundaries of government, to this level of precision, seems like splitting hairs. This is being extremely nit-picky about the role ‘the state’ has to play in all of our lives. But ideas are important. For eons and eons the debate between agnosticism and full blown atheism must have felt similarly hollow. Perhaps more even so, because with the advent of the internet and the campaign of Ron Paul, these ideas are much, much easier to get exposed to. ______________________________________________________________

I hereby present that debate opportunity, albeit vicarious, with two of the heaviest hitters in the idea-sphere:

1) Peter Schiff vs. Stefan Molyneux (< 20 minutes)

  • Peter Schiff: “CEO and chief global strategist of Euro Pacific Capital Inc.” – Wikipedia
  • Stefan Molyneux: “[B]logger, essayist, author, and host of the Freedomain Radio… He self-identifies as a full-time parent and philosopher.” – Wikipedia
______________________________________________________________

Also, if that leaves you all dressed with up with no person to yell at, here is another debate featuring Stefan Molyneux. This video has pretty shit sound quality, so there is your disclaimer, but nonetheless, this exact video is known to be responsible for the ‘conversion’ of quite a few people. You would be surprised.

2a) Stefan Molyneux vs. Michael Badnarik (Bigger, longer, and cut just a little at the beginning)

  • “Michael J. Badnarik: Software engineer, political figure, and former radio talk show host. He was the Libertarian Party nominee for President of the United States in the 2004 elections.” – Wikipedia
______________________________________________________________

Enjoy at the short term expense of your social life but at the long term benefit of your morality and your philosophical clarity. 😀 OnBoard, Johnteezey

Alright all my internet hipsters, you are getting the opportunity to get in on the ground level of a very interesting new online forum, the Johnson O’Connor ‘subreddit,’ “a community for 17 hours.” Newer than Google + and way more underground, you too can have a story to tell as you make posts with an ironic signature and an avatar toting lense-less frames.

If I explain much more it would be way less cool, so I am just going to copy the first revision background. Come to think of it, I probably should not have told you how to get there.

Description:

To discuss the aptitude testing battery administered by the Johnson O’Connor Research Foundation…

Okay, sir, this is to figure out what your aptitude’s good at and get you a jail job while you’re being a particular individual in jail.

Cop at Government Center in Idiocracy

Are you a JOC?

Often, the most valuable part of your aptitude test is not the scores you receive or the careers suggested for you, but rather discussing your results with fellow JOCs.

Join the conversation.

This sub will gladly host a link to

  • a job opening only for an ‘ideaphoria’ elite
  • a flash game only beatable by those with the best ‘pitch discrimination’
  • a thread decoding the aptitudes of Steves Jobs
  • proof of the dating compatibility of ‘subjectives’ and ‘objectives’

If you post any of your results, make sure to remove any personal identifying information!

John[son O’]Connor: The whole thing goes: The future’s not set. There’s no fate but what we make for ourselves.

“They are ants, Michael, they ARE ants!”

2011-05-02 1 comment

In one episode of Family Guy, Bill Gates is flying through the air on a jetpack with Disney CEO and chairman Michael Eisner, who says “God, the people look like ants from up here”, to which Gates replies, “They are ants, Michael, they ARE ants!”

You may feel this way when listening to the following cast on public opinion surveys performed in the US.

Included:

Why is public opinion relevant?
Do Americans want free speech?
What is the median voter theory?
What makes war more popular?
Was giving women the vote a good thing?
Did propaganda make East Berliners more socialist?
What are 3 types of public spending that Americans always want more of?
What is 1 type of public spending that Americans always want less of?
