    AUGUST 07, 2022      AARON SMITH      SEASON 1      EPISODE 32
     
    SHOW NOTES:

    Today, in Episode 32, we discuss the importance of honest introspection, which gives us the humility to recognize our own capacity for evil and to avoid the arrogance of self-righteousness. We also touched on the moral chasm that exists between choosing to sacrifice ourselves for others—a trait we so admire in our heroes—and being coerced into sacrificing ourselves for the collective.

    JULY 18, 2022      AARON SMITH      SEASON 1      EPISODE 31
     
    SHOW NOTES:

    Today, in Episode 31, we think through differences between dictatorships and totalitarian governments. We also discuss the societal implications of remaining silent and allowing a small group of ideologues to steer public discourse in unhealthy directions. And we take care of housekeeping details related to the timing of episode releases. Apologies for publishing this a day late. I hope you can fit it into your active schedule!

    JULY 03, 2022      AARON SMITH      SEASON 1      EPISODE 30
     
    SHOW NOTES:

    Today, in Episode 30,  we contemplate the balance of life. Has society surrendered its ability to self-regulate, empowering the technocrats in their ambitions? I propose something I call “holistic homeostasis” and ask what the significance of internal versus external controls is.  We also spend a few minutes on the question of what the actual words of the Declaration of Independence mean and how the current government might respond to a similar document today.

    JUNE 19, 2022      AARON SMITH      SEASON 1      EPISODE 29
     
    SHOW NOTES:

    Today, in Episode 29,  we are once again joined by Pete G. for a discussion on The World Economic Forum, its founder, Klaus Schwab, and some of the WEF's goals. We also venture into the ideology that drives its members, by their own admission. The false belief that an elite few are qualified to guide, control, and oversee the entire human race, the environment in which we live, and the aspirations of each individual on the planet is not new. It's called "technocracy"- and it's anti-human.
    ADDENDUM:
    I need to correct the record regarding a statement I made in this episode about global mortality.  A lack of clean drinking water and associated diseases are a major cause of mortality in the world, but they are not the leading causes. For more in-depth information on global mortality I have included the following links. I always try to make sure I have my facts straight. When I am wrong and made aware of my mistake, I will always correct the record. It's better to be accurate than to simply sound confident!

    SHOW NOTES:

    Today, in Episode 28, we’re going to discuss some of the collateral damage of the COVID narrative. We'll also touch on Mass Formation and the Overton Window. I hope this discussion is productive and informative and leaves you with more questions than answers, because that’s what we do here—ask questions! Let's enter the arena of ideas . . .

    SHOW NOTES:

    Today we cover some ground regarding the connection between justice and the unintended(intended?) consequences of social media and the internet. What is the balance between accountability and anonymity? We also question the Egoist moral framework and its relevance to the discussion. Thank you for your continued support!
