Topic:
Stefan Molyneux of
Freedomain Radio
joins me to discuss the seemingly elusive nature of heroism.

Our discussion surveys a variety of historical topics as we examine how heroes are manufactured by our government education, while our own capacity for "heroism" is gradually diminished. We also explore the conjecture that government school's theft of our sense of personal power contributes to a desire to experience heroism only through fantasy.

Then, "heroism" gets a long overdue redefining.
