We're living in a time where our freedoms are slowly being encroached upon, but because we're addicted to menial crap, we ignore it.

Our money no longer represents our work, time or effort, the freedom to speak out is obstructed under the guise of "diversity and inclusion", privacy is no longer a right and surveillance has become mainstream "for our protection".

    Ep 49. Fuck your Great Reset. with LaserHodl, Mark Moss, Untapped Growth, Liberty Blitz

    Ep 49. Fuck your Great Reset. with LaserHodl, Mark Moss, Untapped Growth, Liberty Blitz

    Welcome to a very special edition of Wake Up.

    Fuck your Great Reset, proudly brought to you by Svetski, Laser Hodl, Mark Moss, Michael Krieger, Joel Untapped and The Herbalist.



    A group of true elites get together to cover:

    1. Where are we & what’s happening?

    - What’s going on with the Monetary Reset / Great Rest

    - Agenda or Cluster fuck?



    2. The counter-narrative

    - Sovereign Individualism

    - Natural Order

    - Decentralisation



    3. Strategies (& Psychology)

    - How we’re navigating that space

    - What’s on the radar

    - What are the priorities?



    BITCOIN IS HOPE





    Svetski Plays devil's advocate:

    - What does one have to gain from an engineered shitstorm?

    - Complex systems are impossible to engineer.

    - Would this not just be the NATURAL outcome of a group of humans who’s action is no longer tethered to reality?

    - Is it not the pathway a sentient species MUST go through in order to reach “Energy Money”?



    Because Energy Money is the goal.



    Is Bitcoin inevitable?

    It’s not technology per-se that breaks the cycle.

    It’s the discovery of perfect money which ties all human action to real & immediate consequences.



    Bitcoin is the Sun that melts Icarus Wings, and allows Gravity (reality) to catch up sooner.



    Fake elites have always envied the true elite.

    They’ve always wanted to use the masses against the remnant.



    The LaserHodl Model:

    A Communist / Social credit Front End

    A Techno-Fascist Back End

    Cloaking the message in Social Justice



    Bitcoin breaks not only all the models, but all the cycles.

    This ain't just some random 4th turning shit. This is the transition from a Type 0 civilisation to a Type 1. BITCOIN IS ENERGY MONEY. It must be discovered in order for a sentient species to continue to exist.



    And sooooo many more soundbites in this one.

    You people are gonna fucking LOVE it.

    Ep 48. Steve Barbour. Mining, Energy, Bitcoin, Oil, Rockefeller. Wake Up Podcast

    Ep 48. Steve Barbour. Mining, Energy, Bitcoin, Oil, Rockefeller. Wake Up Podcast

    It's been a busy couple weeks with The Bitcoin Standard Conference, PlebFi in Austin and Bit Block Boom in Dallas, so this episode had a delayed release.

    Steve Barbour, Founder & CEO at Upstream Data. Inc. joined me for a shorter Podcast than I usually do, to discuss:

    - What came before Upstream

    - How’d you wind up in Mining?

    - Rockefeller

    - Monopolies & Natural Distributions.

    - What is Upstream

    - How can others do this?

    - Does it make sense for average plebs to mine?

    - What equipment?

    - Comments on things like Compass?

    - Regulation is not a threat to Bitcoin, it’s a threat to people who want Bitcoin

    - Regulation is an own goal, and in Bitcoin, the ultimate self-own by bureaucrats

    Ep 47. Michael Krieger aka Liberty Blitz. Spiral Dynamics, Localism & Globalism

    Ep 47. Michael Krieger aka Liberty Blitz. Spiral Dynamics, Localism & Globalism

    Michael Krieger joins me on on Ep 47 of Wake Up.

    He’s an Ex Wall Street guy, founder of Liberty Blitzkrieg, Bitcoiner, Father, Husband and Gardener.

    The key topic of this discussion as Spiral Dynamics, a model of understanding the human collective and individual consciences through levels & layers of values frameworks.

    Created by Clare Graves in the time of Maslow, and built up by Don Beck, Spiral Dynamics is a fascinating way to understand human behaviour both at an individual and collective level.

    Apart from Spiral, the conversation covered:

    - Localism & Decentralisation

    - Global connectedness VS Globalism

    - Globalism = Industrial Farming & Monsanto

    - Localism = Permaculture

    - Globalism cannot work because the principles it sits on are false.

    - It removes accountability

    - Technocratic leviathans can only exist within the framework of a monopolistic state

    - Localism is natural & emergent. That’s why it was they “way it used to be”.

    - Values are emergent & people naturally align around tribes & communities

    - The Municipality has the MOST power, then the city, then the state, then the nation.

    - Comfort & convenience.

    - Static VS Dynamic inequality.

    - Can move up. Can move down.

    - We’ve been in a Dark Age

    - Stupidity or Plan?

    - Spiral Dynamics

    - Don Beck & Ken Wilbur

    Some books & concepts mentioned by Mike:

    Brave New World Revisited.

    - Huxley

    Operation Mockingbird

    Share this episode with those you care about.

    It’s deep and far reaching.

    Ep 46. Sound Money, Sound Food with Dr Shawn Baker MD

    Ep 46. Sound Money, Sound Food with Dr Shawn Baker MD

    Ep 46. Shawn Baker is a Medical Doctor, elite athlete and founder of MeatRx.

    He's the man who coined the term Carnivore, and you may know him from the hilarious Tik Tok videos he makes, taking the piss out of Vegans.



    We were supposed to record a while back but internet and timezones got in the way.

    We even bumped into each other in Laguna Beach by accident after we missed the first opportunity to record. Classic.



    In this pod we cover loads of ground including:

    - Shawn's story & how he discovered Carnivore

    - Pinterest stupidity 

    - A world gone mad, ie; censorship, etc



    - Keto VS Carnivore

    - Nutrient density

    - Fat & Proteins

    - Strictness of the diet / mixing foods.



    - What do you say to people who believe Carnivore is "extreme" or "missing nutrients", or you "need balance".

    "Health is the absence of visible disease"



    We also cover:

    - Best cuts of meat

    - Broth, bones & organs

    - Seafood

    - Supplementation



    And touch briefly on:

    - Regeneration of the soil

    - Mono crop damage

    And his Twitter which is absolutely hilarious, here:

    (Let's hope it gets un-suspended)

    Ep 44 Alex Epstein, Energy, Fossil Fuels & Human Flourishing. Wake Up Podcast

    Ep 44 Alex Epstein, Energy, Fossil Fuels & Human Flourishing. Wake Up Podcast

    On Episode 44, I’m pleased to host Alex Epstein.

    Philosopher, energy expert, author of the Moral Case for Fossil Fuels, founder of the centre for industrial progress.

    We get into a whole lot of philosophy on this episode and wrap it up with a discussion about energy.

    We take a deep dive into the psychology of the green movement and the anti-human movement.

    Why are we packaging the anti-human with the positive elements of sustainability

    We discuss objectivism and Ayn Rand’s work.

    The jungle, the concrete jungle & the garden.

    The moral case for Fossil Fuels. At a high level.

    Energy density

    Environmental Damage done with renewables

    Average rate of return for energy input into renewables

    Energy independence with “renewables”. Myth or fact?

    Self sufficiency with fossil fuels. How ?

    Efficiency with fossil fuel innovation

    What do we need to work on?

    We didn’t get into where nuclear fits in, but you’ll get the picture.

    I took a moment to tie Bitcoin to energy (because it IS energy money), and make clear that in tying money to unforgeable energy, we root it in physical laws and therefore make impossible the waste, capital and innovation misallocation that’s the real core issue in the world today.

    This is why bitcoin fixes this.

    Check out his book on Amazon; “The Moral Case for Fossil Fuels”.

    It’s a must read.

Best new Podcast

Not just Bitcoin, but really deep & thoughtful conversations on a range of topics. The older eps are a bit rough but the new ones are absolute fire!
