Ep226 - Mixed Mental Arts: Peter Schiff: The Cargo Cult of Libertarianism  

One of the major challenges of our age is that there are a lot of words everyone uses as if we're all talking about the same thing but actually mean entirely different things. Case in point: "capitalism" gets thrown around a lot but it means something totally different to the Chicago School of Economists, Behavioral Economists, the Austrian School of Economics and to Adam Smith. Today, Hunter interviews Peter Schiff one of the most prominent voices in the libertarian movement, a word that has so many different meanings that it's hard to criticize as a whole. We can, however, look at what one man believes in this interview. What and how does Peter Schiff think? Well, I've got to say that I don't think that Peter Schiff's worldview makes much sense either internally, with what we know about human thinking, the historical record or what Adam Smith and America's Founding Fathers taught. In short, I don't think the cargo cult Peter Schiff is proposing will deliver prosperity for humanity. It will, however, deliver prosperity for him. In any evolutionary system, parasitism will emerge as a strategy and the same is true in human societies. You can create a following peddling a plausible-sounding worldview and then extract both money and political power from your followers. Usually, people think of this behavior only in terms of religion but, in fact, you can do it any arena. It applies to self-help. It applies to financial advice. It applies to political promises that gain you power but are so out of touch with reality that they have no chance of delivering your followers prosperity. So, let's look at what I took away from this. Firstly, there's where Peter and I agree. Wall Street has severe problems. It has lost touch with capitalism and confused self-interest with short-term greed that will line the pockets of bankers while destabilizing society as a whole. And I'm quite sure that Peter can help his followers make money by shorting the market. However, in that sense, he is little different from the people he criticizes. He profits while potentially destroying the system that allows him to profit. America's Founding Fathers believed in checks and balances. Nowhere is this laid out more clearly than in Federalist Paper 51 where James Madison writes "Ambition must be made to counteract ambition." The key lies in setting the ambitions of men against each other. You make people compete and check each other's behavior. In the same way, the free market is not about a free for all. As Adam Smith, Capitalism's Founding Father wrote, “People of the same trade seldom meet together, even for merriment and diversion, but the conversation ends in a conspiracy against the public, or in some contrivance to raise prices.” And one of the things that merchants of drugs or ideas like Peter will do if left to their own devices is peddle things that enrich themselves while harming the people to whom they sell. Ambition must be made to counteract ambition. As I mention in this podcast, one of the reasons why the FDA was given increased powers was because of the case of Eben Byers. At the time, one of many patent/quack medicines was Radithor. It was water filled with radium. People drank radioactive water which was marketed as "Perpetual Sunshine." Eben Byers' doctor prescribed it to him (in part because he was getting kickbacks) and Eben Byers ended up becoming riddled with cancer and with holes forming in his skull. He became so radioactive that he had to be buried in a lead-lined coffin. As The Wall Street Journal titled an article about his death ""The Radium Water Worked Fine until His Jaw Came Off." Now, Peter Schiff had never heard of this story. As far as I can tell, he never bothered to try and understand why the FDA or any other government bureaucracy was founded. As I explained to him, I understand that too much government regulation is a problem. That's why I brought Luigi Zingales on to talk about A Capitalism for the People. It's also why I'm such a huge fan of Hernando DeSoto's Other Path. However, I don't know that no government regulation is the answer because that is simply removing the checks and balances. Further on in Federalist 51, James Madison pretty much nails it: "The interest of the man must be connected with the constitutional rights of the place. It may be a reflection on human nature, that such devices should be necessary to control the abuses of government. But what is government itself, but the greatest of all reflections on human nature? If men were angels, no government would be necessary. If angels were to govern men, neither external nor internal controls on government would be necessary. In framing a government which is to be administered by men over men, the great difficulty lies in this: you must first enable the government to control the governed; and in the next place oblige it to control itself. A dependence on the people is, no doubt, the primary control on the government; but experience has taught mankind the necessity of auxiliary precautions." It's hard to top that. Checks and balances and checks on that. So, if Peter Schiff believes the FDA has grown too large and wants to figure out how to check it, then I think that's a great conversation to have. Instead though, when I tried to engage Peter in a conversation about what was the proper role of government–or what was the baby and what was the bathwater–he said, "There is no baby!" He doesn't understand why the FDA was founded and he just wants to throw it all out. How to describe such a man? Well, he's certainly not very wise and if he's not very wise then maybe he's a fool. Structuring a society is a complicated and fascinating challenge. You have to recognize (as the Founding Fathers of both the American representative democracy and capitalism did) that whatever holes you leave someone is going to come in and try and exploit them. There is a hole in American public life that has been counteracted by the failures of the educational system and the media and people will come in and try and exploit the hopes and fears of the general public with plausible-sounding ideologies that potentially destroy the goose that lays the golden eggs: our society. While Peter repeatedly tries to blame America's government for the problems of the American people, in a democracy both power and responsibility ultimately rest with the people. The fault, dear friends, lies not in our Senators, but in ourselves. And there are many holes and problems with Peter's thinking. If he can't even spot the problems in his own thinking what makes him think that he can understand all the intricacies of modern medicine? Arrogance. Peter overestimates his own intelligence. I used to do that too but I've come to realize that I'm not that smart. Modern society is complex and that is fantastic. There are people who sit around all day trying to cure diseases that I haven't even heard of. And there are people whose job is to check the claims of all those people. That's the FDA. Ambition counteracting ambition. It's all very Founding Fathers-y. As someone who has spent the last twelve years doing a pretty deep dive of the neuroscience, psychology, culture, economics and political science, I can tell you that evaluating everyone's claims is a lot of work and I can tell you that there are a lot of people who put themselves forward as authorities on these things who clearly haven't read most of the things they claim to be authorities on. My ambition is to counteract their ambition. I want to lay out the material clearly enough so that you can decide for yourself what to believe. I don't have the time to also go through all the research on what drugs are safe, the science of climate change, vaccinations, nutritional information, what car to buy and on and on. I need to rely on others for that. Some of that will be done by the free market and some of that will be done by the government, but, frankly, I'd rather have it done by both. I'd rather have the ambition of one counteracting the ambition of the other. Removing one source of accountability when you don't even understand why it was put in in the first place is dumb. Can we just say it? Peter's ideas are dumb. They may make him money. They may make you money in the short-term. But if society collapses you're fucked. The end of the world as we know it isn't fun. It's hell on earth. Markets and societies are held together by trust and responsible citizens use their voice to try and create a society with increasing levels of trust. They don't profit by spreading mistrust. There are problems with government and with Wall Street and we should be respectfully challenging the thinking of everyone to try and make those institutions work better. Peter isn't doing that. But he can always change his mind. I hope he will. As of our interview though, I find his thinking to be little different than that of the Wall Street investors he rails against. It's clear on the failings in the thinking of others and very unclear on its own failings and it is an ideology that narrow-mindedly serves his interests at the larger expense of society. Is Peter malicious? I don't think so. He does, however, strike me as oblivious. That can always change. We're all oblivious to many things but there is a chasm of difference between people who mostly seem interested in promoting their own view like Peter and those (like Yascha Mounk in episode 228) who are interested in serving the people by constantly trying to find the flaws in their own thinking. You'll make your own decision. I can just pull back the curtain and help you see what's behind all the jargon and rhetoric. Peter Schiff doesn't think in terms of checks and balances. He thinks in terms of throwing out whatever's in the bath because he thinks there is no baby. In my reading of Adam Smith, Peter Smith is not a capitalist. He doesn't believe in the free market. He believes in anarchy. To which I say: "If m

330: Peter Sage | Why Certainty is a Myth  

Become a complete version of you.

"It's not about what skills you're born with, it's about the mindset you develop."-Peter Sage

The Cheat Sheet: How to stop swimming in GOOP (and what goop stands for). (16:50) The question to ask to shift your perspective on a situation. (28:30) Why knowing something is useless. (31:00) The two emotions that align your heart and your mind. (41:20) A tip to change a woman's mind. (55:30) What's the difference between manipulation and intent? (57:10) And so much more...

Most people in the world are living with situations and experiences that don't serve them, all for the sake of certainty. Perhaps they even know what they're doing, but they don't change. Why? Because living with certainty (even if it means being unhappy) is easier for most of us than living with uncertainty.

Here to explain why this is human nature and how we can break free from it to live healthier and more fulfilling lives is Peter Sage. Peter is a highly accomplished serial entrepreneur, best-selling author, speaker and extreme athlete. Today he joins us to talk about why certainty isn't real, and how applying that knowledge can shift our mindset, our relationships and our entire lives ..and so much more on the 330th episode of The Art of Charm.

More About This Show:

In this episode, Peter gives us a crazy amount of wisdom, advice and insights that have helped him be successful over the last two decades. Before the age of 30, Peter had built over 15 start-ups! And he says he owes much of this success to his interest and passion for personal development. Today he travels the world speaking and giving back to others, helping them find their best version of themselves.

In the best version of himself Peter has learned that certainty is a falsehood, it doesn't actually exist. We only think it does and that thinking keeps us stuck in all areas of our lives. Another truth he has discovered is that the quality and fullness of our lives are in direct proportion to the amount of uncertainty we are willing to embrace.

That's all well and good, but how do we implement that into our lives? How can we embrace uncertainty when our default programming is to go towards what we know? Peter says the first step is awareness. We have to be aware that our programming is taking us in a certain direction. Is that a direction we want to go in? If not, become aware and make a change. And then trust that by making that change, life is going to support us and work with us rather than against it.

And when it comes to relationships we need to become aware as well and examine our relationships. It's important to ask ourselves did we get into this relationship for selfish reasons? Are we looking to have our needs met? Or are we looking for someone to complete us?

Both scenarios, which are Level I and Level II-type relationships according to Peter, will simply get us relationships that are limited in length because they are either selfish or transactional in nature. Instead become the person you want to be, regardless of your relationship status. Focus on being a whole and complete person with or without a significant other and as you do that you'll attract someone of that caliber.

If you find yourself getting stuck in certainty, learn to ask better questions. Peter says all events in life are subjective, nothing is good or bad unless we label it as so. Using that as our basis for all that happens in life we can change how we experience anything, we simply have to ask ourselves different and better questions. Instead of asking "Why did this happen to me?" or something of that ilk, we can ask "What is great about this that I haven't noticed yet?". Doing so will change how we see and feel about an event.

That's one practical tip Peter has for us. He also tells us how to truly understand the principle of uncertainty. If we put ourselves in situations we would've avoided in the past out of fear, we can show ourselves how to cope with the unknown. The more we embrace the unknown, the stronger our uncertainty muscles become. We can learn that uncertainty is a ghost, it's not real and it's not something that should hold us back any longer.

Peter has several other suggestions for overcoming the myth of uncertainty, all of which we dive into in this show. We also talk about why our school system doesn't educate our identities and why we actually need that, as well as the difference between manipulation and intent..and lots more! It was a pleasure to have Peter on the show, he was an amazing guest. I want to thank him for joining us and to thank you for being here too. Enjoy the episode and we'll see you next time.

291: Peter Shallard | The Shrink for Entrepreneurs  

"If people defeat procrastination en masse, then we can make a real dent in some of the problems we face as a civilization."  -Peter Shallard

Have you always wanted to spend a month traveling through some foreign land? Or how about skydiving? Or building your own business? Is there something you've been itching to do but have put it off repeatedly for one reason or another?

If you said yes, buckle in because this show is for YOU! AOC welcomes Peter Shallard, a business psychology expert slash psychotherapist gone rogue. In this episode he discusses why procrastination is an epidemic of catastrophic proportions today and how it's ruining our lives, how to tell if we're wasting cognitive bandwidth and what that even means and why you should care and keys to permanently eradicating procrastination in your life.

More About This Show:

Known as the shrink for entrepreneurs, Peter Shallard has made it his life's work to study human potential. And he's discovered some startling things about why procrastination is happening today and at such epidemic levels.

Peter's start up studies how to move the dial on human potential, including why some of us aren't. 

One of the primary reasons we procrastinate today versus in the past is because we can. Since the dawn of time there has been on previous era where we didn't have to work to survive. Because of the knowledge economy, as Peter calls it, we're now able to go to work that doesn't physically exhaust us and we have plenty of time, energy and availability to create anything we want. We actually have time to play - something none of our previous ancestors experienced.

Think about it, as hunter-gatherers we had to hunt to eat. We had to gather our food to eat. And we had to keep do it repeatedly, day after day. If we didn't? We died. Pure and simple.

When we developed agriculture and grew our own food, we still had to work according to the seasons. We had to plant, tend, monitor and harvest. It was a year-round process and it stopped for nothing. If you didn't plant, come fall and winter you would starve.

The finer details of this show include: What is cognitive surplus and why should you know? Peter gives an example. Are there links between depression and lack of purposeful cognitive use? Maslow's Hierarchy: where are most of us today? What an 80-year old's first flying lesson can teach you about life. The glorification of start-ups and entrepreneurship: the downfalls. And so much more!

But today we go to our jobs, work on some problems and solve them. And then have plenty of physical energy, brainpower and time to work on other problems. So why don't we? Because it's an entirely new experience for the human population. We have no idea how to handle all the opportunities, ideas and information available to us - so we tune them out and bingewatch TV on Netflix or hop on Facebook.

We are just beginning to wake up to this new era of free time plus human potential, not all of us have figured out how to cope let alone thrive in it. But Peter has suggestions on how to change that.

Before Peter and I discuss those suggestions, we talk about how to know if you're procrastinating and could be more productive. Here's the key according to Peter: if you are someone who has a regular gap between your best intentions and what you're actually producing, then you're procrastinating. If you have great ideas and great desires, then you actually do have the cognitive bandwidth (or the mental capacity) to do them. In other words, if you really do want to skydive than you have the capacity to make it happen, regardless of any excuse you may have.

But why does it matter if you put off a dream or a goal? Peter contends that if we could put aside our excuses for not doing something - whatever it is - we would make the world a better place, not just for others but also for others. To that end, Peter and I discuss the potential link between depression and lack of action towards fulfilling work and dreams.

Now that you know if you are one of the afflicted (and most of us are to some extent), what does Peter and his start-up suggest doing to change that and get into action?

A few of the keys to eliminating procrastination for good are as follows:

1. Specificity: one of the biggest issues people have when they think about intentions and things they'd rather be doing is that they don't think about them in ways that are conducive to anything completed.

And there's a term for this! It's called implementation granularity, which means the level of specificity in which you think about your goal. If you are overwhelmed by all the pieces of something, think about just one piece of it and complete that. Then move on to the next piece.

2. Measurement. Keep it very simple: think o

4.) Having started life in an incubator, why did Peter decide that for the origin of Shapeways? What are the benefits? What type of founder is this model right for?

5.) Shapeways have raised from Index, USV and a16z, so how was the fundraising journey for Peter? What would he like to improve upon for next time? What did he do well?

Was du tun musst, um mehr Stille in dein Leben zu holen  

Pling, Ding Dong, "Sie haben Post",

E-Mail, Türklingel, Telefon stören oft den Tag eines Kollegen. Wir nennen diesen Kollegen mal Peter. Wenn Peter nichts zu tun hat, startet er den Fernseher. Im Auto hört Peter gerne Radio oder Podcasts.
Beim Spazierengehen mit seinem Sohn telefoniert er mit Kollegen oder Gemeindemitgliedern.
Jetzt hat Peter Urlaub.

Peter ist mit seiner Familie auf einem Bauernhof. Der Hof liegt zwischen wunderschönen Bergen im Schwarzwald. Leider verhindern die Berge einen vernünftigen Handyempfang. Kein Problem denkt sich Peter und fragt die Bäuerin nach dem WLAN. Die erstaunliche Antwort »Klar können sie das nutzen, aber es funktioniert nicht immer. Keine Ahnung warum.«

Nicht immer ist gut. Genau genommen funktioniert es 5 Minuten am ersten Tag. Seitdem geht es nicht mehr. Peter probiert es natürlich immer wieder - ohne Erfolg.
Peter kann keine Mails lesen, keine Musik streamen, keine Podcasts laden ...
Peter wird unruhig.

[smart_track_player url="" title="Podcast: STILLE" ]

Lieber Leser, ich gestehe ich bin »Peter«, auch wenn ich Benjamin heiße.
Hast du dich auch in Peter wieder entdeckt?

Ich sitze grad auf dem Balkon des Bauernhofes und schreibe. Frau und Kinder machen gerade Mittagsschlaf.

Ich erinnere mich an meine Erkenntnis aus den letzten Exerzitien:

»Lärm muss man machen - Stille ist!«

Für mich ist es der Normalzustand immer Geräusche um mich zu haben. Wenn ich nicht arbeite, höre ich Podcasts, Musik oder schaue fern. Hier ohne WLAN lese ich, wenn die Kinder schlafen. Ich halte es kaum aus einfach nichts zu tun. Und doch sehne ich mich danach. Vielleicht muss man auch das Nichts-Tun wieder üben.

Ich beginne jetzt zu üben und mache 5 Minuten nichts. Ich schaue auf die Berge und höre die Vögel. Ich genieße die Stille.
Für die »Stille« um mich herum kann ich nichts machen. Ich muss auch gar nichts machen, Stille ist einfach da.

Laut den »Perlen des Glaubens« (ein tolles Gebetsarmband) verbindet mich Stille mit mir selbst und mit Gott. Der Weg zu mir und auch der Weg Gottes zu mir liegt in der Stille, im Nichtstun.

Ich lehne mich jetzt zurück. 5 Minuten nur Stille. Machst du mit?

Benjamin - Ich habe Zeit für dich.

Der Beitrag Was du tun musst, um mehr Stille in dein Leben zu holen erschien zuerst auf christliches Zeitmanagement.

Debating the Ontological Argument - Peter S Williams & Peter Millican  

Debating the Ontological Argument - Peter S Williams & Peter Millican

Can God be proved by definition? That's the claim of the Ontological Argument for God's existence.

Christian Philosopher Peter S Williams and sceptic philosopher Peter Millican from Oxford University explore the different versions of the argument. Williams defends the argument, Millican believes it is flawed.

Unbelievable? 17 Sep 2011 - Can an atheist believe in meaning?  

COMING SOON: Book into the UK Reasonable Faith Tour with William Lane Craig
Geoff Crocker is a former Christian, now atheist. However, he says he still believes in Spirituality even as an atheist and that believing the universe is Godless does not mean there is no meaning to be grasped. His book "An Enlightened Philosophy" asks if atheism may be able to borrow from Religion "reintrepreted as myth".
Peter S Williams is a Christian Philosopher and apologist. He says that Atheism does not allow for objective meaning, value or purpose, only theism can provide those.

22 - Peter Ireland on the Chicago School, Federal Reserve Policy Targets, and Monetary Aggregates  

Peter Ireland is the Murray and Monti Professor of Economics at Boston College, a research associate at the National Bureau of Economic Research, and a member of the Shadow Open Market Committee. He joins the show to discuss his experience as a student at the University of Chicago as well as the nuts and bolts of how the Federal Reserve sets out to achieve its short-, medium-, and long-term objectives. David and Peter also discuss the role of monetary aggregates in monetary policy. Economists largely don’t pay much attention to the traditional simple-sum measures of the money supply anymore, but Ireland argues that more complex measures of money, called Divisia indices, can teach us a lot about the stance of monetary policy.

This is THE place dedicated to purpose-driven individuals and passionate creators. We are all about learning how to create impact and interviewing people that are choosing legacy over currency.

If you have been following my journey the last 6-8 months or listened to the last episode, you know that podcasting literally changed my life.


I went from no email, no real brand, no business model to speaking internationally on my podcasting story, interviewing my mega-influences such as Yanik Silver, Bob Proctor, and an Olympian haha.


I finally created a real online business that allows me to travel and if you follow my vlogs, then you know I am hustling and trying to balance everything in my life.


I have been working with a very selective group of messengers and creators the last few months to help them do the same in their lives, create the top-rated show they deserve, get their message out to the world in a bigger way and ultimately change their lives.


Right now, I am gearing up for a mega-launch come end of month for a NEW group starting in May, so if you are a messenger, an entrepreneur or creator ready to share your story with the world by launching a top-rated podcast as well as actually figuring out how to make $$$ from this, then I invite you to jump on the waiting list.

The New York Times has called him "a public relations all-star who knows everything about new media and then some,", while Investor's Business Daily has labeled him "crazy, but effective." 


I love his twitter, where it list out like 15 things,

Including @NASA advisor, Ironman. Skydiver. Dad.


Peter Shankman is a spectacular example of what happens when you merge the power of pure creativity with  Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) and a dose of adventure, and make it work to your advantage.


He is a bestselling author, entrepreneur, speaker, and worldwide connector, Peter is recognized worldwide for radically new ways of thinking about Customer Service, Entrepreneurship, Social Media, PR, marketing and advertising.


Peter is best known for founding Help A Reporter Out, (HARO) which in under a year became the de-facto standard for thousands of journalists looking for sources on deadline, offering them more than 200,000 sources around the world looking to be quoted in the media.


HARO is currently the largest free source repository in the world, sending out over 1,500 queries from worldwide media each week. HARO’s tagline, “Everyone is an Expert at Something”, proves over and over again to be true, as thousands of new members join at each week.


In June of 2010, less than two years after Peter started HARO in his apartment, it was acquired by Cision, Inc.


Peter is the founder of ShankMinds: Breakthrough, a private online entrepreneurial community, with members in more-than-ten countries.


Peter also hosts the award-winning podcast on ADD and ADHD, Faster Than Normal, which is helping to turn the conversation around ADHD from curse to gift, by interviewing successful people who have made ADHD their secret superpower.
