Corruption and conspiracy in government. This is a big episode- in scope, length, and substance. The main groups discussed are the Council on Foreign Relations, Trilateral Commission, CIA, and NSA with further coverage of false flag operations and other documented conspiracies and events of corruption.

19. Update and How Should We View Soldiers and Cops?

5/7/2019
More
This is the short update and commentary I do every fourth episode. In addition to podcast updates and a preview of the next few topics, I go over some quandaries I've been having regarding soldiers and cops. I respect and appreciate the intentions and sacrifices of most individuals of these professions but at the same time, I strongly object to the actions and policies they willingly enforce and I don't want to support murder, immorality, or any infringements on our natural rights. -...

17. Conditioned Society

4/23/2019
More
Schooling methods and curriculum have had an impact on society. We've looked at how the education system fails to educate in some key ways and educates to the harm of individuals in others. Now we look at what effect this has had on society and us as citizens... no trivium, mono-layer thinking, need for entertainment, lack of logic, an overview of fallacies, and more. We'll then dive into a few key documents- an influential book on education by one of the founding thinkers in modern...

16. Debt Based Society

4/16/2019
More
We live in a debt based society from our personal lives to the governments of the world to the corporations we buy from. We finance more than we have, borrow enough to strap us in debt for decades, and don't even question the mechanics of how this works and what it's doing to society. It's time to look at the State of the Union from an economic standpoint. As usual, the examples are from the U.S. but with minor adjustments to the stats, the same principles currently apply to most current...

14. Divisive Politics and Our P.C. Culture

4/2/2019
More
Abortion, gun control, war, racism, and more. We all know that the state of political discourse today is a mess. Why is it so crazy? Why can't we have rational conversations about these topics? Let's cover these questions and also take a look at how to approach some of the hottest topics in today's culture from a relatively objective standpoint and in a way that we may actually be able to understand both sides of the issues and actually influence the causes we believe in. This goes for both...

13. The Founding Fathers, Constitution, and Federalist Coup

3/26/2019
More
For a view on patriotism in it's original sense, we must see what the original founders and citizens of the colonies believed. What was the Founding Fathers' beliefs on government? Did the colonial Americans even want a federal government? What was the debate over the Constitution and how did it play out? Who were the Federalists and why do I call their success a coup? This episode covers these topics through the lens of many important documents from the time period... William Bradford's...

12. Austrian Economics vs Keynesian Economics

3/19/2019
More
The Austrian and Keynesian schools of economics thought have been battling it out for decades. They both have answers for why markets crash and recover as well as recommendations for how to mitigate the swings and promote stable economic growth. The problem? One school says that governments need to step in and intervene while the other says that government intervention creates distortions in the market and is the reason for the major market swings. Understanding these two opposing views sets...

This is a shorter interlude episode focused mainly on how the conversation in today's society has become divisive and toxic without much true intellectual debate and discussion, especially among us "common citizens". We'll look at value judgments vs perspectives, ideas vs beliefs, emotional arguments vs logical, etc. This preludes an upcoming episode that will be specifically on divisive politics and will cover the hottest topics circulating today... abortion, racism, guns, and more. I also...

The Public School System has some issues. Modern education in general has some structural flaws. Some are unavoidable and some are not. What are they? Where did they come from? Why are they there?

9. The Federal Reserve and Modern Banking

2/26/2019
More
It's time to understand your money and your bank. You will likely be surprised if this is your first time looking into these topics, so I'm sorry if your world view shifts a little darker after listening. The biggest influence on monetary policy and our money as a whole is the Federal Reserve in America, and Central Banks elsewhere. We are all on a fractional reserve with fiat money and fraudulent practices. How did we get here and how do these aspects actually work? - Website -...
