Ritual Humiliation [UN-IVERSITY]

A very large group convenes to discuss the recent viral Time Magazine article called "The Secret History of the Shadow Campaign That Saved the 2020 Election." It was presented to me a "confession" but I see more as psychological warfare and demoralization. Scott Hambrick joined us for the discussion and called a "ritual humiliation" of all non-blue-pilled Americans. Then Scott asked: so now that we know this is how politics will work going forward, what do we do? This led to one of my favorite Un-iversity discussions to date, and from there we transition into communication strategies to reach the potentially reachable people in our personal lives, at this incredibly crucial time. Several new voices and points of view here! ...

2020, The Year In Review – With Scott Hambrick [PODCAST #691]

Scott Hambrick returns to infuriate probably about half the audience. I wanted Scott's "clear pill" take on our recent "black pill" discussion (in what was supposed to be an Un-iversity-only chat), but we quickly expanded beyond pill heuristics to a reflection on the year and the state of the world. We disagree in several places, as I try to insert optimism where I can, but I also acknowledge that the optimism needs to be focused in the right places. This leads to some examination and autopsy on the so-called liberty movement, politics, and past outreach attempts. We'll also get a running start with a whole history of the pills. * The red pill vs. the blue, a la The Matrix ...

Rules For Radicals (Part 2 of 2) [PODCAST #659]

Scott Hambrick and Karl Schudt from Online Great Books join me to discuss Saul Alinsky's frightening, frustrating, and formidable 1971 book, Rules For Radicals. Alinsky was a "small c" communist who was also such an apparent individualist that he never publicly aligned himself with with any group, but he wrote a book accessible to any ideology. Even if you're unwilling to embrace the tactics, you'd be unwise to ignore them. An optimistic take: real-world tactics for changing the status quo And a more cynical one: a non-ideologically driven, slogan-rich quest for power relying on ridicule and polarization, happening in an environment where widespread rationality is not a factor The downloadable version of The Ideas Into Action Summit is now available. ...

Filling the Trough (Pedagogy vs. Learning Part 1) With Scott Hambrick [PODCAST #619]

Scott Hambrick returns to begin a multi-part discussion on "how people learn and how we help them do that," as he aspires to be a better Starting Strength coach and a more effective leader at Online Great Books. We begin our discussion with an exploration of the common learning theories practiced in public school and higher education, along with a cost/benefit analysis of each: behaviorism, cognitivism, and (social) constructivism. We also touch on connectivism and mindset theory. In future conversation(s) we'll cover additional behaviors and practices that can greatly enhance both the learning and thing processes, including The 20-Hour Rule, the Six Thinking Hats, the Trivium Method, attributes of self-directed learning and strategies for critical thinking in everyday life.

Scott Hambrick and Matt Reynolds are entrepreneurs, Starting Strength coaches, and the team behind Barbell-Logic.com. While Barbell Logic primarily focuses on strength training, Scott and Matt also dig into various self-improvement topics; we recently collaborated on an old School Sucks favorite - David Allen's Getting Things Done.

We'll also discuss the importance of doing (and occasionally redoing) a "brain dump," the basic GTD workflow, how GTD helps us be more present with ourselves and the people we care about, the importance of context (time and place for work) and ...
