Hey Stef I met you at the Freedom Fest back in…2018ish? You sat with me and gave me some kind words. I was very drunk…BUT I’ve recently become sober with the help of AA?
Do you know about AA basic ideas? If so what do you think?
I have an issue with emotional eating/binging any thoughts on why someone eats that way?
Had a drinking problem before that I kicked
After hearing you talk about fatal flaws recently, I've realized mine is Perfectionism.
My perfectionism is crippling, because it causes me to do absolutely nothing if I can't do it "right".
"Perfect is the enemy of the good" is a good description of my issue.
Do you increasingly support Christianity primarily because it's a bulwark against communism, even though you prefer that people reach virtue through philosophy instead of religion?
Hi Stef, what are your thoughts on unchosen obligations, specifically the religious obligation to honor thy mother and father. More generally, are unchosen obligations a necessary good for society since that has been suggested in a video I just watched by Jordan Peterson
How do I deal with someone who is very sarcastic, but very humorous and the jokes are about me? I laugh because it's really. So it continues.
Why do our parents have such an emotional hold over us as adults?
I got drunk at a company event the other day and tried to discuss the non-aggression principle, and it went over like a lead balloon. Trying to figure out how to walk that one back even though I was being honest. They want to talk to me about it next week. I feel like I humiliated myself talking to a bunch of NPCs about libertarian philosophy. I avoid alcohol because it makes me a bit too honest when maybe I should hold back on certain topics or be a bit more careful introducing the ideas.
Became a father in December, any advice for taking better care of infants?
Stef, under what reasonable circumstances a man who broke up with a women, should take her back? The fact they broke up in the first place is bad enough but is there any reasonable way it can actually happen and work out? Thank you very much.
Thank you very much for the clarification between love and honor. It's an important nuance that I didn't see. What about other unchosen obligations, such as our obligations to the state. How do we distinguish between unchosen obligations that are beneficial to society and those that aren't.
Did any people in your extended family have a positive influence on your childhood? I’m an Aunt and I want to be a positive influence for my niece.
When you fall of the tracks and get lost in chaos, do you have a way of pulling yourself back together? A good method of centering yourself?
Do you have personal preferences to help create a universal safety net that encourages hard work that doesn't violate the NAP?
My mother used to beat me frequently and my father was distant, 20 years later our relationship is kind of cold, i find it hard to smile around them and show happiness, they treat me good now but that past is still there, its hard for me to open up and tell them about it, why wont parents initiate such conversations? i see it is very common that the child always needs to initiate instead of the parents.
How's the book editing going Stef?
Some say we should forgive the COVIDIANS who pushed vax mandates and lockdowns. I say no forgiveness unless they seriously apologize, and then maybe.
I feel like I have an obligation to help toward my mother, as she seems powerless/stucki in her relationship to my fahter. Def resonate with the current topic.
Stef why did your father abandon you with mother? Was he afraid of your mother and just ran away?
Do you think the trauma of World War 1 and World War 2 was the primary explanation but not justification for dysfunction in the boomer generation?
How do we manage our instincts towards obligations? For example men feel obligated to protect women and women feel obligated to nurture life. Do positive obligations have an evolutionary root? Or are some of them branded into our psyche by our culture and these are the ones we should reject.
I was baffled at the response to not go outside and exercise in order to quarantine
Why do you think anti homeschoolers use socialize in public schools as a con for homeschooling?
Aren't mega corporations just proxy extensions of government power these days? And consequently we are left with essentially a new branded version of communism?
