We're living in a time where our freedoms are slowly being encroached upon, but because we're addicted to mediocre b******t, 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Our money no longer represents our work, time or effort, the freedom to speak out is obstructed under the guise of "diversity, inclusion and safety", privacy is no longer respected and surveillance has become mainstream "for our protection".

    Ep 70: Money Messiah Pt 1 with John Vallis

    We're now on Fountain!  
    https://fountain.fm/show/KGEglVpdWo4zXQWR3X7G



    This marathon of a podcast was too long, so we've split it up into be a multi-part series exploring John's incredible "Money Messiah" article from earlier this year.



    We of course dive into more than just the article, of note; we casually discover the meaning of life...seriously...well sort of



    Listen up and you'll understand what I mean.



    Part one covers:



    - The process of writing

    - Ordering & formatting information, from the chaos of 'the subconscious void'

    - How insights emerge

    - Evolution as the process of discovering greater Fidelity, precision, accuracy.

    - We explore the Metaphysics of Quality (Persia's work)

    - We discuss Consciousness, and touch on Eric Neumann book

    - Matter VS What matters (one of my favourite topics)



    And a whole lot more.

    Stay tuned for Part 2 of this mini-series!

    Ep. 69. One Million Bitcoin Supply Cap w/ Knut Svanholm

    Ep. 69. One Million Bitcoin Supply Cap w/ Knut Svanholm

    This episode was going to be called the The Logan & Thor show.

    Listen up to hear why.

    In it, we dive into this idea of “The Sat Squeeze”

    We discuss why 1 million Bitcoin (or less) will actually be available in the long run.

    The rest will be lost, frozen or inaccessible.

    We explore The numerator VS the denominator in Knut’s now-famous “everything divided by

    21m”

    We ask:

    - Does infinity or 1m come first?

    - How do we know what’s lost / inaccessible?

    - Why is bitcoin still $40k?

    - What happens at Sat - cent parity.

    We explore the idea of “knowing is owning”.

    “When knowing is owning, the nature of institutions changes”

    Knut calls us “The trial generation of Bitcoin”

    Which is true. We are the very beginning.

    We discuss the idea of an “Informational element”

    - Alchemists should’ve been looking to replicate the properties of gold

    - Non-physical element

    - Information is not just metaphorically valuable, but literally.

    Knut’s New Book: Everything divided by 21 million available now:

    Ep 68: Marxism, Chinada, Truckers & Politics w/ Benjamin Dichter

    I'm joined by Benjamin Dichter, Freedom Convoy Canada, Spokesperson & Co Organiser.

    We explore:
    His Early history

    Politics vs Economics
    Marxism as a social poison

    The simple lizards & red curtain argument reminds me of the marxists attempt to fix everything via the removal of privation.

    Everyone is conspiring.

    In this episode, we dive into 



    - Anarchy

    - An orgy of deception

    - Government means that the criminals go there

    - Somalia, and why it exists

    - How to deal with "the flawed man"

    - Stupidity, and calling it out



    Building strong people.

    Leadership:

    - A leader is he who places the right people in charge of the right things.

    - Leadership confused with charge.



    And we closed out with a discussion on the short story he wrote for The Bitcoin Times, entitled;



    "The being that changed everything"

    Ep 66. Technology & Tournament Males (Meta Series Pt 2)

    Ep 66. Technology & Tournament Males (Meta Series Pt 2)

    Ep 66: Technology & Tournament Males (Meta Series Pt 2)

    Trav, aka Parabolic Trav, aka Meta Trav joins me again for Part 2 of the Meta Series.

    In episode 2, we dive into:

    - Technology
    - Tournament Males (what they are, how they arose)
    - The Code of Man
    - Frame
    - Chivalry
    - Polygamy
    - Hypergamy
    - Evolution
    - Religion
    - Morality
    - Feminism
    - Adaptation & Fitness

    This episode (in fact, this entire Series) is one to be listened to over again.

    Some highlights:

    "Evolution is like a difficulty adjustment"

    "We transcend the environment, and then warp/change it, so we're then un-adapated, and have to adapt once again."

    "The transition process is a crisis"

    "The full manifestation of frame is sovereignty."

    "Morality is a constraint"
    "Feminine is unconstrained instinctual, and hence immoral"

    "Polygamy is unstable, and destabilises the era of the tournament male"

    "Religion comes along with monogamy to correct the instability"

    Evolutionary Pressure on humans occurs quicker than what we're told, eg:
    - Modern Hysterics (Homo Hystericus)
    - Homo Bitcoinicus

    What it means to be a Tournament male:

    The tournament male trains to master the exponential technology of the day that can transform effort into disproportionate returns

    Size difference over the women. They need to be physically imposing, physically dangerous. You need to work out. Be strong. Know how to fight. Be healthy.

    You need to be smart.

    You have to combine the cerebral and physical

    Courage. Must be willing to stomach risk.

    Must have options, and the attitude that comes with that.

    Highly Generous. Always sharing with the tribe, and the lower classes.

    Care about their bloodline. You become a higher status and you want to instantiate that in your offspring. They optimise "pure blood".

    They're immune to guilt and propaganda.

    They understand brotherhood. Tournament males in a group are exponentially more powerful than singular, competitive males. The pair bonder may be jealous and more inclined to betray bro's for hoes.

    They do what they want to do. They're not

    They care about how they look. Best dressed in the cultures.

    TM's are always king head first into entropy
    Ability to find a balance between courage and stupidity.

    You're willing to bear the consequences of the frame you've chosen to project.
    Responsibility and the age of responsibility.

    Bitcoin is perfect frame.

    Frame is responsibility
    - Standards
    - Interests
    - Habits

    Reconciling religious guilt VS not having guilt as a framed man.

    - Guilt is when you deviate or break frame.
    - Our goal as men is to unite with the ultimate frame of the divine.

    How do you build this frame?
    - Together. Brotherhood.

    There is so much more.
    Just get your ass in there and listen

    Oh...and a resource:

    r/K selection theory (Stefan Molyneoux) (Gene wars)
    K selected species

    Ep. 65 The Bushido of Bitcoin with Erik Cason

    Ep. 65 The Bushido of Bitcoin with Erik Cason

    >>>>> 

    Wake Up is now on The Fountain App (value for value).

    https://play.fountain.fm/show/KGEglVpdWo4zXQWR3X7G

    1000 sats for every new listener on fountain until the end of March !

    >>>>>

    Eric Cason joins me…AGAIN to talk about something we as Bitcoiners need to think about.

    --> A moral code.
    --> A list of virtues.

    How we must conduct ourselves, for it is WE, The True Bitcoiners, who shall inherit the earth.

    In this episode, we explore:


    Why is conditioning so effective.
    Nature VS Nurture.
    Masters & Slaves
    UBI - good / bad / dumb / accelerant?
    Honesty & Privacy ?
    Privacy = Selective Honesty.



    What is Bushido?

    --> Japanese word that literally means "warrior way".

    Bushi: "warrior" = literally 'military + man'.
    Do: road, or way


    Bushido is also used as an overarching term for all the codes, practices, philosophies and principles of samurai culture.
    Bushido formalized earlier samurai moral values and ethical code, most commonly stressing a combination of sincerity, frugality, loyalty, martial arts mastery and honour until death
    It allowed the violent existence of the samurai to be tempered by wisdom, patience and serenity
    A code often unuttered to unwritten.
    Requires a rite of passage, and in order to become a Samurai, one must master this code.
    Variations by clan, by tribe and by territory.
    (Localism in action)
    Similarities to the European concept of chivalry?
    Differences to Chivalry?



    Eight virtues of Bushidō (as defined by Nitobe Inazō):


    Righteousness (義, gi)
    Heroic Courage (勇, yū)
    Benevolence, Compassion (仁, jin)
    Respect (礼, rei)
    Honesty (誠, makoto)
    Honour (名誉, meiyo)
    Duty and Loyalty (忠義, chūgi)
    Self-Control (自制, jisei)



    The Bushido of Bitcoin??


    Courage
    Responsibility
    Truth
    Respect
    Honour
    Honesty & Integrity
    Temperance / Low time preference
    Self Defence
