[VIDEO] Brett On Liberty Under Attack Radio

On this broadcast of Liberty Under Attack Radio, we hosted the 22nd edition of the direct action series. We covered three items off of The Freedom Umbrella of Direct Action; namely, strategic withdrawal, myth busting, and debunking fallacies. In the first three segments, we were joined by Brett Veinotte from the School Sucks Podcast to discuss government indoctrination, more commonly known as public schooling. We started our discussion by digging into the root problems of the institution and the sheer lunacy found within. In the second segment, we dug into Brett’s background, the Prussian model of schooling adopted by the United States, and more. In the third segment, Brett provided the basic criteria for communicating the dangers of public schooling ...

[VIDEO] #415: The Principles of Learning Anything – Part 5 – Embrace Your Incompetence + Q&A

February's Theme: A New Perspective On Self-Education For this entire month I will be joined by Steve Patterson, a home-educated and self-taught Rationalist philosopher, to explore five key principles of learning that are translatable to just about any pursuit. Principle #5: Embrace Your Incompetence Ego is perhaps the biggest obstacle in the way of learning. People get wrapped up in the appearance of competence or the appearance of knowledge, and they rarely allow themselves to admit being wrong. You might think of ego as a huge methodological error. In reality, failure is your best friend. Failure is immediate feedback that “something is wrong.” And it’s a necessary part of the process for everyone. You literally cannot get from beginner to ...

[VIDEO] #414: The Principles of Learning Anything – Part 4 – Doubt Everybody

Part 1 Part 2 February's Theme: A New Perspective On Self-Education For this entire month I will be joined by Steve Patterson, a home-educated and self-taught Rationalist philosopher, to explore five key principles of learning that are translatable to just about any pursuit. Principle #4: Doubt Everybody (Skepticism) Though it sounds rude, I suggest assuming that most people don’t know what they are talking about and do not understand the correct basics. That includes most “experts”, or instructors, in everything from the world of ideas, back to the martial arts, or even basic practical skills.

[VIDEO] #413: The Principles of Learning Anything – Part 3 – Mastering the Basics

February's Theme: A New Perspective On Self-Education For this entire month I will be joined by Steve Patterson, a home-educated and self-taught Rationalist philosopher, to explore five key principles of learning that are translatable to just about any pursuit. Principle #3: The Basics Essentially related to the principles of technique and efficiency is mastery of the basics – the fundamentals – of any discipline is mastering the discipline. Roger Federer isn’t doing backflips and advanced techniques on the tennis court; he does basic, textbook shots, and they are executed at an extremely high level.

[VIDEO] #411: The Principles of Learning Anything – Part 1 – Technique

February's Theme: A New Perspective On Self-Education For this entire month I will be joined by Steve Patterson, a home-educated and self-taught Rationalist philosopher, to explore five key principles of learning that are translatable to just about any pursuit. Principle #1: Technique The method in which you accomplish what you’re trying to do. It’s the concrete “how”. - People have heroes, heroes become superhuman, godly – they look up to but never into people - high-level performers simply have better technique than their competition. They are closer to “the right way of doing X” than other people. - Almost everybody does everything incorrectly? - Practice makes perfect? - Steve's self-education in economics? - Credentialing Check out more at: steve-patterson.com or ...

There's a lot here that didn't make it into the podcast. Recorded live 5-9-13. The one-year anniversary of the School Sucks Live Show Topic: This live show was recorded immediately after my 90-minute discussion with Dan Carlin (coming soon), and the gears of my brain were really turning in different ways. I wanted to discuss methods and theories for examining and interpreting history. Often history is a story told through the "Great" Man Theory, opposed to the Trends and Forces Theory. Reflecting on a series of shows I did about the Nazis, I realize that there is considerable synthesis between the two. This conversation is derailed by silliness a couple of times and also contains non-live portions. Were the Salem ...

Topic: Stefan Molyneux and I discuss the anger and frustration that many people encounter after discovering the message of liberty.

"Plus ça change, plus c'est la même chose." -Alphonse Karr Translation: The more it changes, the more it’s the same thing Pursuing a topic that I wish was less relevant...Cory, Matt and I discuss the political and cultural reaction to the Stanley Kubrick film, A Clockwork Orange, based on a book by the same name, written by Anthony Burgess. Please be patient with this show. Society's decision-makers, opinion-manipulators and their loyal followers frantically search for scapegoats when deeper problems manifest in an immediate crisis or tragedy. I believe they do this to avoid looking at culture, government, traditions, parenting, institutions...and most importantly, the self. Authentic, meaningful examination is just too overwhelming, compared the to ease of blaming youth, permissiveness, too ...
