FDR3631 Failing At Life With A Smile On Your Face - Call in Show - March 23rd, 2017  

Question 1: [2:44] - “As a manager in a global Financial Services business that employees over 200k people and has revenues of over $29bn US Dollars, I have seen a huge focus develop on ‘Gender Equality’, meaning that there are a number of initiatives and programs aimed at getting more women into senior positions in the firm, where they are statistically under represented. Do you think that such initiatives are valuable and, if so, what role can / should men play in supporting them? I ask as I while I am very ‘pro-equality’, through my work with the Women’s Network, I have increasingly heard phrases like “white men just don’t get it” and ‘there are too many pale, male and stale decision makers’ which makes me ask – is there an enormous double standard developing?”

Question 2: [54:14] - “I just listened to ‘Your Job Is To Get Married And Have Children’ through your YouTube channel, and I would be very interested to explore an idea with you: Is any man out there in a traditional career really able to plan for the future? Many have educational debts and no streams of passive income. Jobs are disappearing, and as Boomers retire, many of their jobs are going with them. Also, how can a moral man work in a regulated sector of business? Doesn't making more dollars just make the government rich while its subjects trade their health and sanity for it? Doesn't this just feed into this atrocity that is mandatory healthcare? Isn't it the duty of someone who sees these problems to allow this situation to fall apart?”

Question 3: [1:34:31] - "How can we bring science back from the cult of diversity? I recently received feedback on my National Science Foundation Graduate Research Fellowship Program application, and one part of the review struck me as quite interesting. It reads 'The applicant served as a Teaching Assistant for an introductory AI course and as an Instructor for a summer camp designed to expose elementary school-aged kids to robotics. The applicant expects to serve as a TA during graduate school, but it is unclear how, if at all, he plans to participate in activities that specifically seek to broaden the inclusion of women and underrepresented minorities in CS and STEM.' While I ended up leaving graduate school anyway, I think this particular quote illustrates a larger problem in the scientific community: an over emphasis on diversity of skin color, gender, etc. among the ranks of scientists as opposed to actual scientific progress. Now that academia, even in the sciences, has transitioned into essentially an arm of the government, what can be done to push back and restore science to its intended purpose?"

Question 4: [1:52:56] - “I am a second-year student at University. I am double majoring, one being philosophy, the other not yet determined. My passion is philosophy, but I know that this major does not translate directly into many jobs - realistically we can't all hope to run something like Freedomain Radio. I understand that integrating philosophy into one's daily life can have an impact, however I see the only proper role of a true philosopher to be philosophizing - that is, teaching, in some sense. Does Stefan have any advice in terms of breaking into the marketplace of ideas? Good ideas are a start, but surely there is more to it than that?”

FDR3630 Triggered Goalpost Moving - Call in Show - March 22nd, 2017  

Question 1: [2:07] - “I had a really great childhood, and I think I've made it to adulthood pretty successfully. I am happily married to a wonderful man and have extremely high hopes for our future. However, in the first months of my marriage, I was so frustrated during an argument with my husband that I scratched his face and left a mark. I haven't done it again, but I don't ever want a repeat. Can you help me uncover where this propensity for violence is coming from, before we bring children into this house?”

Question 2: [1:18:57] - “With the corruption and hypocrisy in the Catholic Church (e.g., Vatican City holding the most restrictive immigration policy, Pope Francis often contradicting doctrines, parishes adapting to political agendas), how can I believe in Catholicism as the true religion? Is it too naïve to think the corruption can be fixed?”

Question 3: [1:45:25] - “Capitalism is best at dealing with things where the cost and benefits are measured in money. Socialism is best at dealing with things where the cost and benefits are measured in human lives. For example, Socialism is bad at running a for profit business. Capitalism is bad at running your local police department and court system. Since, in effect, every form of government is on some level, a form of socialism, is it possible to ever get the right balance of Capitalism and Socialism in a society, and if so, what might it look like? If not, why is it doomed to fail?”

Question 4: [2:16:58] - I'm a 38-year-old single dad of two young boys, and I find myself starting to despise women. I'm not quite sure why, but I see what they're doing to the country, how feminism and ‘progressive’ beliefs are detrimental to not only men, but the nation. How can I avoid imposing my beliefs on women and liberals as a whole on my two young sons?”

FDR3628 Left-Wing Death Camps | Mike Cernovich and Stefan Molyneux  

The history of left-wing violence, forced labor camps and mass murder is often obscured by traditional media and modern academia. The body-count left in the wake of Joseph Stalin, Vladimir Lenin and Mao Zedong illustrated the dangers of communism, socialism and totalitarian leftist ideology overall. Mike Cernovich joins Stefan Molyneux to discuss Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn's The Gulag Archipelago and the important historical lessons which much be learned to prevent the spread of violence in modern times.

FDR3625 The Truth About Beauty and the Beast  

In Disney's remake of the classic tale Beauty and the Beast, Emma Watson plays Belle, a "bright, beautiful and independent young woman, is taken prisoner by a beast in its castle." Is Beauty and the Beast filled with the anti-male female vanity stoking tropes that has become commonplace in modern Disney films? What is the truth about Emma Watson's rendition of Beauty and the Beast - is it a fun children's story, or vile and dangerous propaganda?

FDR3622 Let’s Talk About Racism - Call In Show - March 16th, 2017  

Question 1: [2:52] – "In your video 'Always Be Nice: Fail.' I thought you were overly aggressive with the caller. I would like to understand why you thought this was the best way to debate with the caller."

Question 2: [55:25] – “With all the race bating rhetoric the media uses to reinforce white guilt and the over criminalization of blacks, which further divides us. How can we make race relationships better when people are scared to speak their minds without feeling guilty for it?”

Question 3: [2:16:15] – “All established parties in the Netherlands have ruled out a coalition with the PVV of Geert Wilders, even if the populists were to become the largest faction. What should be the next step for the PVV and its supporters, if they are continually excluded from government?”

FDR3620 The Shadow P3n!s - Call In Show - March 15th, 2017  

Question 1: [2:11] - “To varying degrees all my relationships have been spoiled by my jealousy and insecurity over things like my girlfriends going out to nightclubs, having male friends and going to things like salsa classes. After my last breakup I went through therapy and felt like I had the jealousy under control, but now I'm in a new relationship I see the old patterns emerging. To what extent is this something I should be eradicating, or is jealousy over these type of issues natural for men, with the real problem being their acceptance in modern society?”

Question 2: [56:16] - “I’ve been called racist 3 times within the last year. As a black guy, this is very strange because it’s technically against the liberal rules. However, I have started to see myself become increasingly xenophobic for lack of a better word. This is what I want for an immigration plan: Immediate expulsion of illegal immigrants, end of birthright citizenship, revocation of citizenship to those born to illegal parents, change of immigration to Japanese system, and an oath of allegiance to receive right to vote and government benefits.”

“I feel like at worst, the immigrants want to annihilate us and at best they want to change our culture by coming here and changing our lives slowly. Someone asked me what composition I would like for the United States to be and I immediately answered ‘80% white, 20% black and make space for 1% other.’ Have I gone too far? Has moving to Texas made me ….?”

Question 3: [1:51:30] - “What is the morality of breaking commitments or contracts? When is it moral/ethical to break a commitment or contract? Is it right to leave the military early and pursue a career I have a true desire to do? As a young man would this be very detrimental to do? Should I stay in for the remainder of my contract and then pursue it or take the leap of faith?”

Question 4: [2:10:20] - “With the premise that God is readily accessible through prayer, it seems that it would a good method for testing His existence. Have you had any experience with prayer? Both before and after university? If so, what was your interpretation/analysis of the results. If not, would it be beneficial for an empiricist to make attempts at prayer, or not?”

FDR3617 Turkish Riots In The Netherlands | Erdogan Threatens Europe!  

On April 16th, 2017, Turkey will hold a referendum on “constitutional changes” which would grant Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan additional authority. The Netherlands and many European countries have significant Turkish populations who are eligible to vote in the referendum and Erdogan’s design to campaign in those countries has led to a significant diplomatic crisis.

After Turkish riots overtook Dutch streets, the Netherlands government has withdrawn permission for Turkish officials to campaign in the country, citing “risks to public order and security.” Erdogan has threatened harsh sanctions and even alluded to war over these measures – all mere days away from the Netherlands own parliamentary election.
