The world is largely asleep.
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Our money no longer represents our work, time or effort, the freedom to speak out is obstructed under the guise of "diversity, inclusion and safety", privacy is no longer respected and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".

Wake up is dedicated to helping ensure V for Vendetta and 1984 remain works of fiction.

Topics will include Bitcoin, Money, Freedom, Philosophy, Psychology, Science, Ethics & more

    Q&A with Svetski. Ep 1. Parasites, Lemmings, Stupids and other ideas.

    Hey everyone!



    Trying something new today.

    I wanted to answer a series of comments from Fountain and discuss a few outstanding ideas to make the podcast more interactive.



    This is something I think I'll do every 20 or so episodes.

    Maybe more frequently. Let's see how it goes.



    Back to regular screening next week, with the next instalment of the Rob Malka series.



    Lastly, I promised a link to the vide, The 5 Laws of Stupidity:

    Enjoy!
