Happy New Year from You, Me, and BTC! About a year ago, 2014 was just getting started, and we made some Bitcoin-related New Year’s resolutions on the show. Telling more people about Bitcoin and spending it in person were some of our favorites. Since 2015 is now upon us, it’s time to check in and see how we did. Tim and John will explain how they kept their Bitcoin promises surprisingly well, so tune in to hear their stories!

Your hosts are Tim Baker, Daniel Brown, and John Stuart. Enjoy!

  • Some Resolutions for 2015 Avoid getting too enamored with the political horse race; societies are reformed bottom up, not top down. Hating the regime is healthy but always remember to love liberty even more. Be tolerant toward different ways of living; if it is not a threat to life and property, it is not a threat. Be appreciative of commercial culture and all those who work within it; they are part of the solution. When you shop, do so not only as a consumer but also with the mindset of the merchant; our relationship should be one of mutual cooperation and understanding. Be humble concerning the shape freedom should take; the job of freedom is to reveal, not to conform. Remember that every law, regulation, and legislation is enforced at the point of a gun; do nothing to make society more violent. Let your heart fall in love with the spontaneous orders that surround us; the beauty of human association is everywhere for those with eyes to see. Take delight in the surprises of life; the more events are unexpected, the less power one will can exercise over them. Seek to learn something completely new, something that stretches your mind beyond what you believe is your capacity. Read not only what appeals to you but also what you think does not. Never regret; the past is data we can’t control whereas the future is our to make. Nothing comes into being without first being an idea; the idea is the template and the model, the truly valuable thing. Every uncertainty is an opportunity. Remember and take comfort in knowing that it is a gigantic world out there and no one rules it. The best means of confronting hate is through love; the best means to counter violence is through peace. There are barriers to success in every age but most of us face fewer than any people in history; be clever and brave and overcome them. Use your best idea first, with full confidence that there is more where that came from. Develop your own moral sense; don’t let it be defined by the civic religion, which distorts ethics above all else. Cultivate good habits, manners, and humane etiquette; a free people must learn to govern themselves. Discover and research with passion; there is nothing that is not interesting. Live the freedom you want to see in the world.

  • I personally don’t make New Year’s Resolutions anymore. I think that if you want to make a change in your life, act on it ASAP! That being said, I made a year-long commitment to abstaining from alcohol in mid-January. It just so happens that the last drink I had was on New Year’s Day. I’m pretty proud of myself for making it this far 🙂 Did anyone stick to their resolutions and/or have any planned for the upcoming year?

  • I’ve noticed that there’s a general consensus that Christmas, around the 24th to 26th – is spent with family. However, NYE seems to vary a lot more. Younger people seem to be out with their friends on this day (night?), while some of my friends from more traditional families also stick together on the 31st. What are your experiences, and what have you observed?
