It Pays to Polarize – ReConsider

This is the episode. It’s not a riveting production but the content is even handed and outstanding. This is a fantastic look at what is being done to manipulate us and why.

I’m not sure about his long term investing strategies, but if you want to get your basic financial situation under control, Dave’s the man to help you.

#1216 – Sir Roger Penrose The Joe Rogan Experience

I don’t know how to describe the discussion but you have a materialist appearing to poke holes in the mechanistic arguments of consciousness. Absolutely no woo.

Article: Why Third Wave Anti-Racism is a Dead End

John McWhorter and I are not on the same page in a number of areas but he clearly nails it here. The one-to-one relationship that this third wave antiracism has to religion is clearly shown and discussed as are the actual implications of encouraging people to be fragile. There is a related podcast which I have not yet listened to (I need to get isolating or noise cancelling headphones for the plane) but given the excellent discussions they have had previously I’m willing to recommend it.

This is a very kind, generous, and rigorous article.

#1214 – Lawrence Lessig The Joe Rogan Experience

An interesting discussion of our nation’s corruption. Lessig sounds like a hardcore liberal who is unaware of his bias yet is still a great source of information and seems to strive to serve results over ideology.

Sunday Special Ep 31: Bishop Robert Barron The Ben Shapiro Show

I’d like to discuss his idea of the universal church needing to be governed by the Pope but it was a fascinating and edifying conversation. I learned a lot.
