Stephanie Murphy and Brian Sovryn are in the School Sucks studio for a free-form, extended discussion on the topic of conspiracy theories. In this first installment, we talk about - how were we introduced to the world of conspiracy? - was this introduction helpful? - the process of waking up, aligned with the 5 stages of grief - communication failure due to anger - are there some reasonable psychological generalizations of conspiracy theorists? - is that even a fair question? - Tim Melley: "agency panic" - too much individualism couple with a sense of powerlessness - the problem with the psychologizing of conspiracy theorists - what is the emotional payoff of promoting liberty and/or conspiracy theories?

Tony Myers, Darrell Becker and I analyze and respond to the Gnostic Media presentation called “Nonviolent Communication, Pt. 1 “Is NVC Consistent with the Trivium Method?” This is Gnostic Media podcast #229, recorded on may 18th, 2015, with guest Bill Joslin. This was discussed at length in the School Sucks Facebook Group (link). Today we cover their presentation from 01:41:22 to the end, where they compare the OFNR process of non-violent communication to the Trivium. Description from Gnostic Media: Bill Joslin at an early age developed a fascination with mind and awareness. Subsequently he spent 16 years studying Bonpo, Nyingma Buddhist and Taoist practices. He spent a year in Asia interviewing Buddhist monks in Laos, Cambodia, Nepal; Taoist practitioners in Indonesia, and Bonpo priests in Northwest Nepal, comparing practices as taught in the west with the original monasteries and traditions from which the teachings originated. Nine years ago, Bill was asked by a number of people to counsel them with mediation practices they were having difficulty with and not finding aid from their current teachers. From a sense of responsibility Bill then went through a process of questioning every aspect of meditative knowledge he had gained over those years, essentially applying critical thinking to spiritual practices. In short order the illusion of meditation, spiritual teachers, and philosophical frameworks dissolved and a concise, non-mystical view of mind, self and world emerged with simple clarity. Meditation and spiritual guru-ship is an ancient form of control, the residue of which we live with today. Professional Protesters make their way into legitimate causes by providing organization and training to sincere people. Once installed into the cause they then high jack the activities - marginalize or radicalise the participants. NVC is a core subject in activist training.

This was discussed at length in the School Sucks Facebook Group (link). Today we cover their presentation from 01:06:27 to 01:22:31, where they begin addressing the questions: is NVC consistent with the Trivium Method? can NVC replace rhetoric in the Trivium?

Crispin Sartwell is a a Professor at Dickinson College, a philosopher, individualist anarchist and journalist. His books include Against the State: An Introduction to Anarchist Political Theory (2008) and How to Escape: Magic, Madness, Beauty, and Cynicism (2014). He is well-known for his work deconstructing social contract theory and other justifications for the existence of the state. Why did I want to have Professor Sartwell on the show? 1. It's always nice to chat with a renegade academic, and to provide a platform for venting 2. Recent conversations with non-libertarians have me thinking about the "social contract" 3. The 2016 election is coming and the political conversation is getting scarier Discussion Summary: -Libertarian philosophy as check against electoral politics and the continued expansion of the state -Why vote? -Professor Sartwell's philosophical challenge: bring forth a reasonable argument for the existence of the state -Social contract theory, Hobbs and Locke -David Hume and Utilitarian arguments for government -Democide, government in the 20th century: cased closed -Liberty from the bottom up -Collectivism skews reality -People are schooled into the state, as "mirrors of the bureaucracy" -Surviving and thriving in academia Look Closer: Crispin Sartwell, Wikipedia - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Crispin_Sartwell Eye of the Storm, Crispin Startwell's blog - http://eyeofthestorm.blogs.com/ The Left-Right Political Spectrum Is Bogus - http://www.theatlantic.com/politics/archive/2014/06/the-left-right-political-spectrum-is-bogus/373139/ Fight With Your Friends About Politics - http://www.theatlantic.com/politics/archive/2014/08/against-consensus/375684/

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!
