Throughout 2016, our friend Julia Tourianski has been immersed in brain scans, controlled studies, evolutionary psychology, and anthropology. She recently produced a video called 50 REAL Differences Between Men & Women where she discusses her findings. For months we have talked about connecting this topic to the challenges students face in government school, including supposed achievement gaps, zero tolerance, at-risk students, socialization, higher education opportunities and absurd pseudo-scientific majors like Gender Studies. -discussion of Julia's Purposes -my purposes, School Has Become Too Hostile to Boys -Sex vs Gender distinction -discussion of Julia's methods and sources -impressions of Cordelia Fine and our SSP discussion on gender roles from 2010 -Behavior is never either nature or nurture. It is always a very complex interweaving of both. -Problem: already weak scientific conclusions are overblown by popular writers -Boys and girls like to draw different things -Females hear better than males -Boys naturally use movement to think -Groups of boys play differently than groups of girls -Males are More Likely to Overestimate Their Ability (Intro with the pay gap myth) -Males are more likely to exhibit aggression physically while females are more likely to exhibit aggression verbally Bumper Music: Jeffrey Lewis - "Back When I Was Four" Look Closer: Julia's Notes and Sources Get the books:

Wes Bertrand and I discuss facets of healing trauma and activating 7th pillar true-self motivation. This is the fourth part in our rebooted series based on Nathaniel Branden's book, Six Pillars of Self-Esteem. This extension to the original series focuses on Branden's concluding chapter and what he calls the "seventh pillar." We will be reviewing each of the six pillars; the previous discussions focused on the what and the why of those practices, and this time we turn our attention to the how. INTRO MONTAGE: The 1989 film Parenthood is a humorous but touching look across three generations of a family system. The film's protagonist (Gil, played by Steven Martin), despite not having the reparenting/self-integration vocabulary, is determined to learn from his father's mistakes and apply them to his relationship with his own children. Throughout the film, he expresses great stress over the prospect of failing as a father. Clips from Parenthood are interspersed with some of the advice of Dr. Daniel Siegel. DISCUSSION: - today's theme: reparenting - started with severe abuse cases, but we could all use it - Re-parenting is a process of giving yourself what you never got: love, nurturing, and protection. - self-teaching is an important parallel to this process - this practice aids with self-integration HOW TO DO IT: 1. Take Time In / Mindfulness Thanks to Dr. Dan Siegel we have two models for approaching this: http://www.drdansiegel.com/resources/wheel_of_awareness/ http://www.drdansiegel.com/resources/healthy_mind_platter/ BALANCE: somatosensory work, breathing, meditation, and mindfulness practices Trauma and Memory: Brain and Body in a Search for the Living Past - BOOK 2. Communication with/acknowledgment of and listening to ...inner child/disowned parts of self -Living Consciously -Self-acceptance -The Damaging Effects of Repressing Unwanted Emotions -The Integrative Process -repression of negative emotions stunts the integrative process. -sentence stems - The Art of Self-Discovery -gratitude, 3.

Wes Bertrand and I reboot our series based on Nathaniel Branden's book, Six Pillars of Self-Esteem. This extension to the original series focuses on Branden's concluding chapter and what he calls the "seventh pillar." We will be reviewing each of the six pillars; the previous discussions focused on the what and the why of those practices, and this time we turn our attention to the how. INTRO MONTAGE: Domination systems scale up. From the home... to the schools... to the military and the police... to the state. DISCUSSION: - The main hurdles: (in embracing and working towards a better concept of self) - Systems of domination (abusive and neglectful parenting, schooling, religion, and government), which sacrifice needs and induce trauma - Eisler's Domination Cultures vs. Partnership Cultures (and the problems with that view) - Origins of Domination systems (are they an evolutionary step?) - Myth of Redemptive Violence. It enshrines the belief that violence saves, that war brings peace, that might makes right. It is one of the oldest continuously repeated stories in the world." - The LANGUAGE OF DOMINATION SYSTEMS - the relatively non-integrated and non-optimally designed brain that struggles to make sense of traumatizing experiences (being overpowered, overwhelmed, or put in jeopardy) and the sacrifice of needs in general - overcoming the kluge THE SIX PILLARS OF SELF-ESTEEM 1.

We will be reviewing each of the six pillars; the previous discussions focused on the what and the why of those practices, and this time we turn our attention to the how. INTRO MONTAGE: Collectivism pulls us away from pursuits of self-knowledge, self-assertiveness and self-actualization, away from becoming who we are. The easiest forms of collectivism to carelessly embrace are tribalism and racism. Pseudo-self-esteem is often the result of such embrace. This montage is a 2016 update on Rand's thoughts on racism, Branden's 1971 warnings about anti-individualist psychology and our 2014 discussions on self-esteem. DISCUSSION: We aimed to focus this segment on the importance of self-knowledge and how it prepares us for self-education, but due to the gravity of the current political situation we spend a considerable amount of time on race, IQ, tribalism and a culture focused on non-essentials.

This is my conversation with Adam Allpow of the Voluntary Institute on how the Social Justice movement is further damaging higher education, in terms of culture, freedom and actual learning. I think it's important to stress the importance of treating people as individuals, but in order address a problem we have to recognize some patterns. Monologue: Why did I pick such a shitty title? Discussion: - Unique communication and generational challenges Millennials face - the back-story of SJWs? the theories of Paul Joseph Watson and Stefan Molyneux - The new highest values being taught: equality, diversity and inclusion - confusion about structural racism, scientific racism and racial liberalism - racial liberalism in higher ed - paternalist, white-supremacist, inperialist - Building empires on aggrievement: people seeking something/someone to justify their failure, allay their fears, confirm their suspicion and help them throw rocks at their enemies. -SJWs are discrediting legitimate causes and projects; the damage they're inflicting is significant, producing hostility towards groups they claim to represent - "no justice, no peace" - that's actually the goal - when one (supposed or legitimate) injustice is remedied, they'll continue to move on to increasingly contrived causes - the progressive stack - yikes - how to we make progress and grow as individuals? we usually have to experience some discomfort - how do we grow as intellectuals? usually through experience of some amount of discord and debate Look Closer: Tom Woods Show Ep. 676 The Campus Silencers: Who Are They, and Can They Be Stopped?

We will be reviewing each of the six pillars; the previous discussions focused on the what and the why of those practices, and this time we turn our attention to the how. INTRO MONTAGE: In these conversations, we will integrate some of the lessons from our 2015 series on trauma and Internal Family Systems (Adverse Childhood Experiences and Resilience) with Branden's concept of the disowned self. The 2014 film Birdman provides a fine example.

This is an edited version of my recent appearance on Liberty Under Attack Radio, with Shane Radliff. In this conversation we address considerations for constructively communicating the problems with public schooling to its supporters and even its employees. This includes: -knowledge of the needs, beliefs, concerns of audience -confidence in your evidence and conviction in your arguments -clarity in definition, education vs schooling -regular access to the people -and they have to be willing to audit their beliefs From Liberty Under Attack: On this broadcast of Liberty Under Attack Radio, we hosted the 22nd edition of the direct action series. We covered three items off of The Freedom Umbrella of Direct Action; namely, strategic withdrawal, myth busting, and debunking fallacies. In the first three segments, we were joined by Brett Veinotte from the School Sucks Podcast to discuss government indoctrination, more commonly known as public schooling. We started our discussion by digging into the root problems of the institution and the sheer lunacy found within. In the second segment, we dug into Brett’s background, the Prussian model of schooling adopted by the United States, and more. In the third segment, Brett provided the basic criteria for communicating the dangers of public schooling to those we are close to that are still within the institution. A Quote to Juxtapose to the Concern About A Clinton Or Trump-Run Federal Department of Education "For what is meant by saying that a government ought to educate the people? Why should they be educated? What is the education for? Clearly, to fit the people for social life — to make them good citizens. And who is to say what are good citizens? The government: there is no other judge. And who is to say how these good citizens may be made? The government: there is no other judge. Hence the proposition is convertible into this — a government ought to mold children into good citizens…. It must first form for itself a definite conception of a pattern citizen; and, having done this, must elaborate such system of discipline as seems best calculated to produce citizens after that pattern. This system of discipline it is bound to enforce to the uttermost. For if it does otherwise, it allows men to become different from what in its judgment they should become, and therefore fails in that duty it is charged to fulfill." -Herbert Spencer, philosopher Look Closer: Education: Free and Compulsory, by Murray Rothbard - A new way to incentivize the production of educational content.

take it with you


Iphone_trans Listening to podcasts on your mobile devices is extremely convenient -- and it's what makes the podcasting medium so powerful.

You can take your favorite shows and mixes with you anywhere, but to do so requires some quick and simple steps.

Let's walk you through that process together.
step 1:


Click the "Subscribe With iTunes" link in the page's sidebar:

Subscribe_with_itunes

This will require that you have the iTunes software on your computer.

(You can download iTunes here.)
step 2:
Itunes_ss

Now that you've subscribed to the podcast on iTunes, the feed will display in your "Podcasts" section on the left navigation bar.

Click there and you'll see the show displayed in the iTunes browser.

You can "get all" to download all available episodes or just individual episodes.
step 3:


Plug your mobile device (iPhone, iPad, iPod) into your computer with the Dock Connector cable, and click the device in iTunes's left navigation bar.

Itunes_ss2

Once you have your device highlighted, click "Podcasts" in the top navigation bar and sync the podcasts you want on your device. Click "apply" and the episodes you have downloaded on your iTunes software will sync with your device.
that's it!

The beauty of this process is that now, every new episode of your subscribed podcasts will automatically sync to your device every time you plug it in and open iTunes. You can now take your favorite shows with you everywhere you go.

Enjoy!
done!
