FDR3754 Objective Ethics In 15 Minutes | Universally Preferable Behaviour (UPB)  

For thousands of years, humanity has attempted to enforce ethics through supernatural and secular punishments; this rabid aggression has been both necessary and ridiculous. It has been necessary because a rational proof of secular ethics has never been achieved; it has been ridiculous because it is impossible to imagine any scientific or mathematical argument being advanced in such a hysterical and violent manner.

“Ethics” has been one of the great government programs of history; since kings and priests ruled mankind, only those philosophers who served their interests tended to get promoted to prominence, rather than imprisoned, poisoned or burned. Thus, over 2,500 years since its inception, the discipline of ethics remains largely subjectivist, relativist and cultural – and was not only unable to restrain, but may have played a part in promoting the horrors, wars and genocides of the 20th century, the bloodiest hundred years of history of our species.

Stefan Molyneux has written "Universally Preferable Behavior: A Rational Proof of Secular Ethics,” which presents radical and rational arguments for a nonreligious, non-statist, entirely secular set ethical standards which validate the nonaggression principle – thou shalt not initiate force against thy fellow human – and the fundamental logic for respecting property rights.

Rigorous, analytical and challenging, “Universally Preferable Behavior” provides a solid foundation for secular ethics. This book solves the ancient philosopher Petrarch’s dichotomy, which is that it is better to will the good than know the truth. Armed with the arguments in “Universally Preferable Behavior,” you can both know the truth and will the good.

FDR3753 Brexit: The Betrayal | United Kingdom's EU Referendum  

Over a year after the United Kingdom's European Union Referendum where the democratic vote proved that citizens wanted their country to regain their sovereignty - it appears that a massive betrayal has occurred. As Brexiteers and Remainers debate about leaving the single market, it appears open borders immigration policy will continue far into the future.

FDR3744 IS EVERYTHING SUBJECTIVE? | The Daily Argument  

One of the oldest problems of philosophy is proving the validity of objective reality - how do you know that your waking life is not also a dream? Hundreds of years ago, René Descartes wrestled with this problem – that we might just be a "brain in a tank" being manipulated by some demon for his own devilish fun!

If you've ever been told that "nothing is objective" and "truth is relative" and "everything is subjective" - or ever doubted the validity of your senses, you desperately need arguments against this mad perspective! Take 10 minutes, gain a lifetime of sanity and defense against the dark arts of sophistry!

FDR3743 The Argument from Genghis Khan? - Call In Show - July 12th, 2017  

Question 1: [2:01] – “Is it possible for Atheism to explain the existence of objective morality: subject-independent - things are right or wrong independently of whether anyone believes them to be so? How is your morality (Universally Preferable Behavior) objective - obligatory to all - for all people at all times? How would UPB apply to, say, Genghis Khan? It strikes me that UPB morality does not address the personal ethics internal to a single moral agent, only transactional ethics between a plurality of moral agents in most cases.”

Question 2: [42:53] – “At what point does female vanity become excessive and a red flag? My girlfriend is amazing, and as the Eastern European woman she is, she is not afraid of exhibiting her femininity. However, a few things about her worry me, and I am not sure whether they point towards something problematic, or if I am the one who just needs to get over it. For instance, she often wears lipstick of different colors, but for some reason I can’t stand lipstick. She also does a pose on pictures (instead of a smile), which brings out a dark feeling inside of me when I am in front of the camera with her. She also sometimes wears glasses without strength and smokes, which I strongly dislike. However, she is a wonderful human being who is family oriented, extremely loyal and self-secure. It is an absolute joy spending time with her. We live in different countries at the moment, and we have started to discuss how that could be solved, but I could really need your perspective on this. Am I right to worry about these things, or is it something I have to work on to get over?”

Question 3: [1:15:47] – “I was recently suspended from my university for a joke I made back in January with my fraternity brothers. I not only lost a full ride scholarship, but also any chance I had of getting into law school because of this. I understand why people adhere to PC culture passively, but why, when it is clear that it causes direct harm, do people (university staff, in my case) still act as though it is the moral high ground?”

Question 4: [2:14:16] – “I, like many of your listeners, have over the past couple of years really come to see the extent of lies and hypocrisy dished out to people, and especially to young people, by the mainstream media, government education, culture as a whole, and even parents. Growing up a sick child whose natural development was constantly interrupted and stalled, I was always told that whatever people did to dictate my life and raising was for my own good, the best they could do for me, yet they always, always put their own comfort first and I hardly had any ability to question or oppose their viewpoints. It was so much, in the end, more harmful than helpful. Why don't parents actually protect and be honest with their children?”

Question 5: [2:43:20] – “What is the ideal education system supposed to look like? What moral principles should it observe, how should it conform to the 21st century, and what general steps there are to be taken, particularly in the west to reform it? What is the most moral and effective education system that we can hope to create here in Europe?”

FDR3740 Donald Trump, Jr. Russian Collusion Email Scandal | True News  

The New York Times recently reported on a meeting Donald Trump, Jr. had with Russian lawyer Natalia Veselnitskaya in June 2016 – alleging that this shows proof of collusion between the Kremlin and the Trump campaign to “hack” the U.S. Presidential election. The allegations revolve around an email exchange between publicist Rob Goldstone and Donald Trump, Jr. related to Veselnitskaya having opposition research on Hillary Clinton, suggesting that Russian individuals were illegally funding the Democratic National Committee. Is this the smoking gun the Democrats have been waiting for which proves their Trump/Russia collusion narrative?

FDR3738 The Strange Death of Europe | Douglas Murray and Stefan Molyneux  

"The Strange Death of Europe is a highly personal account of a continent and culture caught in the act of suicide. Declining birth rates, mass immigration, and cultivated self-distrust and self-hatred have come together to make Europeans unable to argue for themselves and incapable of resisting their own comprehensive alteration as a society and an eventual end."

"This is not just an analysis of demographic and political realities, it is also an eyewitness account of a continent in self-destruct mode. It includes accounts based on travels across the entire continent, from the places where migrants land to the places they end up, from the people who pretend they want them to the places which cannot accept them."

Douglas Murray is Associate Editor of the Spectator and the Associate Director of the Henry Jackson Society. His is the author of many books including “Bloody Sunday: Truths, Lies and the Saville Inquiry” and “The Strange Death of Europe: Immigration, Identity, Islam.”

FDR3736 The Biggest Mistake Of My Life - Call In Show - July 5th, 2017  

Question 1: [2:18] – “What does it mean to be an evil person, and how do you distinguish an evil person from someone reacting to a traumatic past? For most of my life I grew up believing no one was really evil, but rather it was the harsh circumstances of one’s life that cornered people into evil actions. I believe this moral relativism is something our culture and government embeds into our beliefs at a young age because if we cannot recognize evil we cannot begin to fight against it.”

Question 2: [30:15] – “I am 19 years old, and I Just got out of a very brief but intense relationship with an almost 30-year-old divorcee who has two children. He was suffering from many mental problems, he was an alcoholic, drug addict, and about to get kicked out of the Navy. We Initially started out with a very intense relationship that he very quickly ended which ended in disillusionment, anxiety, and a pregnancy scare. I am a very marriage minded woman, and this incident has left me questioning my values. What can I do to find myself a morally good husband?”

Question 3: [2:00:35] - "On this 150th Canadian anniversary, I asked myself the following question: what is Canada? It may be because I am from Québec, but I am unable to provide an answer. I concluded that Canada is, in essence, legal fiction. It seems to me to be a country that exists on paper, but lacks any truly identifiable culture or people that unmistakably separates it from the rest of the western world. As nationalism is currently gaining strength throughout the world, how will this affect Canada? Will it lead to our country gaining some sort of identity of its own? Or will it lead to a splintering as regional identities take precedence? What will be the result of Canada's status of ‘first post-national state’ as the world goes through what will most likely be a major geopolitical shake-up in the coming decades?"

Question 4: [2:43:16] – “My parents were divorced 2 years ago, and in the process I witnessed my father become a shadow of his former self. Now, all around me I see what appear to be broken men and emasculated young boys. Anyone listening to your show should know the causes of this ‘Fall of Man’, the consequences of which are deep, personal, and far-reaching. In this era, what can a youth like myself do to be a ‘real man’ amid such hostility towards masculinity and animosity towards the traditional concept of manliness?”
