Description

Weirdness and Success, fake news, Facebook warriors, and reflections on 2016.

The first half of the show starts with a new rule of thumb: the weirder you are at the start of your career the less likely you are to succeed and the weirder you are later in your career, the more likely you are to be successful.

In the second half, since it’s the end of the year, TK and Isaac are looking back and looking ahead. From big growth at Praxis, to family developments, and TK growing his hair out, a lot has happened in the past year.

There is also podcast news as the show will be on hiatus for until at least the end of January.

Topics Covered:
– The correlation over time, weirdness, and success

  • I’ve started to notice more and more private education companies being founded that offer alternatives to the established education system. So far I know of the following: The UnCollege Gap Year: “A 12-month skills-building regimen designed to equip young adults to succeed in the 21st century.” Praxis: “An intensive 10-month program for entrepreneurial young people who want real-world career experience and the best of online education all in one.” Exosphere‘s Entrepreneurship Boot Camps: “An 8-week program at Exosphere’s headquarters in Chile for people who are committed to setting their lives on a new course, combining technical skill acquisition, real business practice, and deep philosophical and intellectual reflection.” I myself work at Exosphere and we’re noticing how more and more people become interested in these alternative programs. What other options are out there that I’m missing?

  • Over the past five months or so, I admit I’ve been intrigued—indeed, perhaps obsessed—with the American elections. More specifically, I’ve been fascinated by the Trump phenomenon and by the stunning hordes of people that either support him and hate him. The time I’ve spent learning about American Democracy has made me realize that my previous opposition to statism as a whole, as well as my rejection of voting on principle, was founded on abstract and philosophical discussion alone. I had an utter lack of experience and interest in politics. Throughout my whole life, the political process has seemed hopelessly corrupt and out of reach. It was easy for me to conclude that voting was hopelessly pointless and probably immoral. Today my views have changed, not much, but enough that I feel compelled to talk about my thoughts and not just keep them to myself. This is an exploration of a self-defense case for voting that is consistent with Voluntaryist principles, as well as a discussion on the potential merits of voting for Donald Trump to advance the cause of liberty. Before I make that case however, let me lay down two essential facts that have propelled me to this point. The Voluntaryst Self Defense Case for Voting Trump
