“It can be all too human to jump in too fast and draw quick conclusions on the meaning or reason behind something, adding to what are often irrational beliefs. Often with ambiguous events, a ‘meaning vacuum’ occurs, leaving us without immediate clarity on the event.

We all need to be able to wait patiently and let a situation calm down before deciding what – if anything – we should do about it. This can be the difference between ‘believing’ and ‘knowing’, and I talk more about that distinction later in the video, with some tips on how to carefully help someone make that distinction, and how to dispute irrational beliefs.

Video highlights:

“A revolutionary and powerful speech from musician and Pink Floyd band member Roger Waters on challenging authority and societal change.
This is not a drill.

“We are all brothers and sisters under the skin and above it . . . it’s super important that we stop lobbing bombs over the top of the wall and start trying to dismantle it, so that we can say ‘hi’ to whoever is on the other side, whether the divide is religious or nationalistic or politic or economic.”

Why I gave up on the AMERICAN DREAM – and you should too…

….

“After years of chasing the American Dream I’ve finally given up on it. And I’ve never been happier…”

This guy has figured out something very important.

To those who’ve seen it for what it is…the so called “American Dream” is a vapid ploy, to keep you incinerating your life away in a money grubbing rat race…You’re perpetually chasing after being happy, by constantly working to own more stuff [constantly aiming for better], and to be more popular or “important”.

For so many of us, “the American Dream” is a load of crap…largely because we never even cared about all that BS, in the first place…let alone, never wanted to be a slave to its pursuit.

One of the best things you can ever do for yourself, is stop comparing yourself to everyone else…Just live honestly, and continue on with life.

Tension between progressivism and conservatism…

“Clip taken from DarkHorse Podcast Livestream #94 (originally streamed live on August 28, 2021)”

One of the biggest problems I have with conservatives, is that so many of them have a worldview which sets themselves up as “proper authorities” to lord over everybody else…and as such, they wont leave everybody else the hell alone…constantly creeping into and threatening the private lives of millions of people.

One of the biggest problems I have with progressives, is that so many of them hold fanatical contempt towards the basic rights and freedoms, of those they judge “not on their team”…You’ve heard the term “Democracy is one sheep and two wolves voting on what’s for dinner”?…Well…Many progressives are the type of wolves, who will band together, vote away and deny the voices and participation of people they don’t like, and dance on the graves of said people once they’ve been banished from “the polite society of the beautiful people”.

I cannot stand the notion of either of these extremes being in power…even if I do share some common social goals, which they claim to fight for.

We need a humane, balanced system, that loves and respects the people…all of the people…all of the time.
