FDR3818 Time Is Running Out! - Call In Show - September 6th, 2017  

Question 1: [2:00] – “I can't stand my sister's boyfriend. He's 27 and my sister is 20. We have the same ethnic background and I've known his parents for over 10 years. Initially I was alright with him, I found him a bit weird but I felt relief because I knew his parents well. As it currently stands, they've been in a relationship for 1 year. Throughout this time I've found him to be a very impulsive, superficial and fake person. I think he is a negative influence on my sister and dread contact with him. A virtue I value strongly is that of being a genuine and honest person. It's very easy for me to fake being friendly with him and avoid conflict but I don't like acting contrary to my true feelings. I was hoping you can give some insight on how one should behave with someone they dislike that they can't avoid.”

Question 2: [33:45] – “I've read and watched a lot of your content regarding atheism, and theism, but have yet to hear your views on the concept of the idea of an Aristotelian unmoved mover, especially with the surfacing scientific evidence that our universe had an absolute beginning. Is it not valid to use a deductive inference to the best explanation to conclude that a transcendental being created the universe?”

Question 3: [1:02:26] – “I have been listening to your podcasts for about 1 year and my husband has listened to some of them recently. I have started reading real time relationships and am about half way through. I have already been hit with many truths most of which are physically painful. I am contacting you because I feel time is running short for our marriage and I cannot pretend anymore. I have tried to speak with my husband many times about this but he avoids it and or doesn't understand what I mean. I don't want to break up our children's home and damage them even more. I have many regrets about the kind of mother I have been even though I swore I wouldn't be like mine. My objective with contacting you is to try and minimize any further damage to my children and to survive my marriage. There is no physical or verbal abuse in our marriage but we avoid everything that may bring a conflict. It is fake. To sum up our relationship you can substitute our names for ‘Bruce and Sheila’ in Real Time Relationships. I know you can't tell us what to do but I feel you could give us or even just myself the kick in the ass we need. I know that we avoid any conflict because if we were really honest with each other and our families, everything we have would come crashing down. This terrifies me.”

Question 4: [2:05:18] – “After 6 years of being an ‘empty nester’, I accepted the responsibility of helping my boyfriend raise his 13-year-old daughter. She is 10 years younger than my daughter and came from the type of home I can only imagine but have a hard time truly understanding. I come from a highly K-directed background (I grew up on a ranch in Wyoming, my parents are still married, and my father was in the military). I am struggling with the obvious R characteristics displayed by my stepdaughter, and to some extent my boyfriend. How can I help her overcome her early experiences and become a productive member of society? She is now 14, do you believe there is a point when it is just ‘too late’?”

FDR3816 The Myth of the Noble Savage  

Are we better in a state of nature, before authority brings down the hammer on "misbehavior"? Do you ever yearn for a simple life, deep in the woods, free of social constraints? What do you think would happen to us all in the absence of the rule of law? Would we learn to cooperate, or end up fighting endlessly? Dr. Duke Pesta joins Stefan Molyneux to discuss the ancient idea of an earthly paradise that existed before the fall of man. What was it really like? Better, or worse? Where would you prefer to live?

Dr. Duke Pesta is a tenured university professor, author and the Academic Director of FreedomProject Academy, a Live Online School offering individual classes and complete curricula for students in Kindergarten through High School.

FDR3813 Marrying A Hooker? - Call In Show - August 30th, 2017  

Question 1: [2:55] – “My husband and I have three kids ages 5, 3 and 1, and we are keen to teach them how to reason and utilize philosophy in a culture that has largely lost that ability. I had a private, Christian education from kindergarten through college, but I'm aware - thanks in big part to your show - that I did not learn to reason regarding current events and relationships. We want to start teaching our kids the basics of reason and philosophy now; how are you teaching your daughter about these things?”

Question 2: [18:45] - "Will we eventually have to go back in, with boots on the ground, to the countries - or failed states - in the Middle East, Afghanistan and elsewhere, whose problems we may not have created entirely but have certainly contributed to, in order to avert the existential threat we face in the West and also to deliver safe, civilized, worthwhile lives to the people living in these countries? In short - and I know this is an Oxymoron - should we be planning to impose freedom and civilization on these people for their own good and for our security in the long term?"

Question 3: [41:10] – “I’m 28 years old, divorced, musician and a serial fixer. Over the past decade I have had several long relationships with broken women. Somehow I've always knew that it would be a challenge but I dove deep nonetheless hoping that it would work. Now the next ‘victim’ is a hooker living 4000 miles away from me. I don’t know if I'm stupid or a masochist. What drives me to put so much energy and time into those relationships?”

Question 4: [1:27:34] – “I am contemplating and leaning towards pursuing philosophy as a career path similar to how you do use it. Given that philosophy has such a large body of work to it, has traditionally been tied to college which is now so ideologically infected. Learning philosophy is not so straightforward in self-teaching as many other skills, what do you advise I do to get a good foundation for the knowledge and skills necessary for this?”

FDR3811 Your Brain On Porn | Gary Wilson and Stefan Molyneux  

"When high speed internet became widely available a few years ago, growing numbers of people began to worry that their porn use was running out of control. Far from preparing them for fulfilling relationships, viewing an endless stream of porn videos led to unexpected symptoms. Perhaps most surprisingly, for the first time in history erectile dysfunction was becoming a significant problem for young men."

"This led to one of the largest informal experiments in the history of science. Tens of thousands of people have tried abstaining from sexually stimulating material in a process they call ‘rebooting’. Many of them reported startling changes, from improved concentration and elevated mood to a greater capacity for real-life intimacy. Gary Wilson has listened to the stories of those who have tried giving up internet porn and related them to an account of how the reward system of the brain interacts with its environment. And now a growing body of research in neuroscience is confirming what these pioneers have discovered for themselves – internet pornography can be seriously addictive and damaging."

"In Your Brain on Porn Wilson provides a concise introduction to the phenomenon of internet porn addiction that draws on both first-person accounts and the findings of cognitive neuroscience. In a voice that is generous and humane, he also offers advice for those who want to stop using internet pornography."

Gary Wilson is the author of “Your Brain on Porn: Internet Pornography and the Emerging Science of Addiction.”

FDR3806 Former ‘Antifa’ Speaks Out - Call In Show - August 23rd, 2017  

Question 1: [2:06] – “I am struggling with my attempt to avoid the public school system while it finances are tight. I have been a stay-at-home mom for five years raising a hyper soon to be six year old boy and a kind four year old girl. As of last month our finances have become strained, and we unexpectedly are carrying two mortgages. Our plans to place both children in private school may have to be cancelled. My plan to only be at work while kids are at the school, may have to change to me working full time hours and kids moving from school to after care. I am very frugal with the money I spend; I feel my husband is more of a spender than I am, but there are certain expenses he is unwilling to cut. What more can I sacrifice to truly put my kids first? How can convey to my husband that we both don't need to be chasing finances, while finances are tight?”

Question 2: [1:11:20] – “I work for a supplier that deals in electronics selling to large manufacturers. Recently this year I was told by a corporate purchasing manager that there is nothing she can do to maintain our business relationship as my company is not woman owned or classified as a diversity supplier. My contacts with this company run into the thousands worldwide, and the director who I was speaking with has a great deal of unchecked power. The company is a technology company, and I have worked with many women over my 23-year career all of whom are professional and have not harbored the least scrap of negativity toward me in my work, and I assume are assets to their teams. This perhaps is the greatest challenge to me in my career, we can always get a new customer and shame on me for creating a living off a multi-million-dollar account having kept most of my eggs in one basket. What does a man who works for a white male owned company do when his best fortune 50 customer says we no longer want to work with you because the company you work for is not classified as a diversity source?”

Question 3: [1:44:09] – “I have laid out an argument that the concept of ‘identity’ is logically invalid or meaningless within the domain of human being. I also have an argument that the contradiction of ‘identity’ is significant because it sets the conditions necessary for the initiation of violence against people; thus, violating the Non-Aggression Principle.”

Question 4: [2:13:45] – “I am a former Antifa-style anarchist. In 2011, I was part of the Occupy movement, but in 2016 I voted for Trump after a long and difficult intellectual journey from radical Leftism to Conservatism. My hope now is to help other people trapped in the Radical Left to de-hypnotize themselves. Do you have any thoughts on how to do this, or any advice on how to transition back into society?”
