Question 1 [1:56] – “According to r/K selection theory, cold winter, saving seed crops and defer gratification has made certain section of people higher in IQ. On the same lines, shouldn't people in 3rd world countries grow in IQ, because of economic winter, lack of resources, lack of freedom and other economic backwardness?”
Question 2: [28:40] – “The left has been calling everything racism from employment to immigration policies to disagreements with the president. This Chicago kidnapping situation was a milestone moment in our politics as it tested our tolerance for this silly hate crime idea that they created. Why are we so quick to play the left's game of racism and hate crime when we don't even agree with their position in the first place?"
Question 3: [1:06:39] – I don’t believe that free will exists. I have also struggled with depression, lack of motivation and a feeling of meaninglessness throughout my life, even before I realized that free will doesn’t exist. How do you think depression, lack of motivation, etc. feeds into the other? Do I somehow need to start believing in free will to feel better?“
Question 4: [2:48:25] – “I was wondering if you have any advice for the millennials who have been screwed by excessive student loan debt and a tough job market. I accept full responsibility for the fact that I went to college at 18 (on a full" academic scholarship) and chose basket-weaving majors that I found interesting, history and film, which amounted to nothing for me. I tried teaching, and had to go through another crushing debt cycle to do that, only to find out that I would rather dig ditches than be a high school teacher. For those of us feeling left out of the economy of good jobs, do you have any advice on how to get out of a crappy cycle of entry level job hell, feelings of failure, and find something both profitable and meaningful?”
