From Powerless Paranoia To Direct Action, With Shane Radliff [PODCAST #618]

Who is Bill Cooper? How did he help? How did he hinder? What's his relationship to Alex Jones? Why was he killed in the Fall of 2001? Today we'll be answering 4/5 of those questions to your satisfaction. Shane Radliff is the creator of Liberty Under Attack Publications and the host of the Vonu Podcast. I first encountered Shane's work in 2016 and I was immediately impressed with his focus on practical self-liberation strategies; he had assembled a comprehensive list of empowering pursuits (with instruction) under the umbrella of his Direct Action series. But Shane's journey, like mine, did not start in the most empowering of places. He says he wound up in a "conspiratorial rabbit hole" which eventually even ...

163: Critical Thinking Development and Emotional Intelligence

It's good day for it. Topics: This morning I discovered a new website: www.criticalthinking.org, the homepage of The Critical Thinking Community. There's been a lot of talk on the show lately about the connection between critical thinking and emotional intelligence. And after searching through the site, I discovered the work of an educational psychologist named Linda Elder. I was very intrigued by her paper, Critical Thinking Development: A Stage Theory, so I thought I would turn it into a nice mp3 for you. Woven throughout the theory is a call to understand the roll emotional intelligence plays in effective and rational thinking, so I have also included some audio from an Objectivist writer and lecturer on philosophy named Dr.Diana Hsieh. ...

We'll explore the lies, myths, omissions and distortions used to indoctrinate blind patriotism (aka nationalism aka mysticism). Critical Thinking Question: Statism appears to be only example of a system of ongoing attack and predation where the aggressors seem to be more fearful of victims than the victims are of the aggressors. How do the aggressors manage these fears? Topic: An email from a listener gets me thinking about conspiracy theories. We'll divert our attention from the roots of the tree I like to think we're chopping at, to jump down a nearby rabbit hole. Let's see where it takes us! -Vietnam -Iraq and ...
