Svetski Wake Up Podcast

By Aleks Svetski

The world is largely asleep. We're living in a time where our freedoms are slowly being encroached upon, but because we're addicted to mediocre bullshit, we ignore it. Our money no longer represents our work, time or effort, the freedom to speak out is obstructed under the guise of "diversity, inclusion and safety", privacy is no longer respected and surveillance has become mainstream "for our protection". Wake up is dedicated to helping ensure V for Vendetta and 1984 remain works of fiction. Topics will include Bitcoin, Money, Freedom, Philosophy, Psychology, Science, Ethics & more

Ep 98: Free Will, Uncertainty & Risk with Pierre Rochard
Ep 98: Free Will, Uncertainty & Risk with Pierre Rochard
"A real comparison between gold & bitcoin is to compare their relative ability to alleviate uncertainty" Pierre Rochard, VP of research at Riot Platforms Inc, and yes - THAT Pierre, joins me finally, on the Wake Up Podcast to discuss his new piece for The Bitcoin Times, entitled; Bitcoin VS Gold. Now..this is not just another one of those articles. This one is short, concise and you WILL take away with you a concept that you may not have thought about before. The difference between uncertainty and risk. You can find the fill article here on The Bitcoin Times website: https://bitcointimes.io/bitcoin-versus-gold/ We go on a few tangents in the episode also, but here are the core topics: Free Will & Determinism / Austrian Econ & Keyenianism Nature VS Nurture The difference between uncertainty and risk. Money (savings) is how we relieve uncertainty!! Inflationism is a policy that dissuades people from holding cash, and there forces them to become short-termist & have high time preference. Price is all about risk. Savings is how we minimise and manage uncertainty - NOT Risk Inflationism is a policy that dissuades people from holding cash, and therefore increases their uncertainty.

Ep 97: Toward a Node World Order Part 2, With Michael Goldstein, aka; Bitstein.
“There is no bitcoin network outside of bitcoin nodes. Those who do not run their own full node are using someone else’s full node“ Bitstein is the co-founder of both The Nakamoto Institute and Noted Bitcoin Podcast & he’s one of the most well read people I’ve ever met. The episode continues with part two, and we cover the balance of his incredible article: Toward a Node World Order; How Bitcoin Obsoletes Inflation & Promotes Human Flourishing. Read it here: https://bitcointimes.com.au/toward-a-node-world-order/ In this part, we cover: Why Gold “didn’t fix this” The 3 steps to a Fiat World Order How military conquest has been overshadowed by monetary policy Why Bitcoin Fixes This Doing your own verifying and indexing is the only way to be sure your index data is secure.  — Satoshi Nakamoto A full node as an independent bookkeeper “The bitcoin network was architected in such a way that a full node can operate in a bunker, cut off from the rest of the world, save for a single internet connection”  The dangers of people who keep trying to extend it’s purpose beyond that, in some attempt to make it do everything (eg; Ethereum, and even Bitcoiners with Ethereum envy, eg; Stacks) Bitcoin Nodes and Methodological Individualism  What is Methodological Individualism ? How does it manifest with a Bitcoin Node? The idea that Bitcoin exists on the node seems to fry people’s brains because they can’t conceptualise how a global network can simultaneously be here in a local node.  “There is no bitcoin network outside of bitcoin nodes. Those who do not run their own full node are using someone else’s full node“ The Establishment of a Bitcoin World Order  A fundamentally better economic operating system  The Industrial Revolution freed humanity from the Malthusian trap. Bitcoin, having put an end to counterfeiting once and for all, frees us from the fiat trap.  Follow Michael @BitStein Check out NakamotoInstitute.org And buy your copy of The Bitcoin Times: bitcointimes.io ____________________________________ Thanks again for listening.

Ep 96: Toward a Node World Order Part 1 With Michael Goldstein, aka; Bitstein.
“All Bitcoin is paper bitcoin until verified by your own full node” Bitstein is the co-founder of both The Nakamoto Institute and Noted Bitcoin Podcast & he’s one of the most well read people I’ve ever met. He joins me on the show to discuss the first essay he’s written in a LOOOONG time, called: Toward a Node World Order; How Bitcoin Obsoletes Inflation & Promotes Human Flourishing. Read it here: https://bitcointimes.com.au/toward-a-node-world-order/ We covered so much ground in this ep, that we split it into two parts. In part one we cover: Nodes. What they are, why they’re important and how they manifest our will onto the Bitcoin Network. “Perpetual vigilance on the part of the citizens can achieve what a thousand laws and dozens of alphabetical bureaus with hordes of employees never have and never will achieve: the preservation of a sound currency.” This is clearly how Bitcoin & nodes seem to have manifested his quote, but what do you think he envisioned when he said this? What is the Malthusian Trap? How did we solve for it? The productivity theory of wages, and how Marxists in general get child labour so wrong. Why real progress requires capital accumulation, technological advancement & public ideology “There was never enough slaves to create an iPhone for the Pharaoh.” Time preference Why is the “evenly rotating economy” always going to be hypothetical ? Why there will always be a necessity for Money The state & public support How money & banking help support a “good opinion” of the state (and at the very least the assumption that it’s a ’necessary evil’) Follow Michael @BitStein Check out NakamotoInstitute.org And buy your copy of The Bitcoin Times: bitcointimes.io ____________________________________ Thanks again for listening.

The Origins of the Austrian School of Economics With Rahim Taghizadegan
The Origins of the Austrian School of Economics With Rahim Taghizadegan
The Origins of the Austrian School of Economics "There are two types of enlightenment. Grass roots, like the Austrian or Scottish kind, or Top down like the Jacobin or Fabian kind." Rahim Taghizadegan is most well known as an Author, Bitcoiner & Educator/University Lecturer and the “Last Austrian Economist in the direct Austrian Tradition”. He wrote a piece for the latest Bitcoin Times, Austrian Edition. You can read and boost that here: https://bitcointimes.com.au/from-bitcoin-to-the-austrian-school/  This man is an absolute WEALTH of knowledge and I we had an incredible discussion about the origins of Austrian Economics, money, banking and merchant networks - all which are precedents to Bitcoin. If you’re a history buff and love to learn about the origin of things, THIS is an episode you will absolutely love. We cover: A history of Austrian Economics: Menger & his lineage. Menger as a bright “node” in emergent Austrian thinking A little about the Crown prince Who was the Nobel Laureate (Hayek?) Menger’s students “Two lesser-known nodes in the network of the Austrian School would go on to have a much more profound impact on the world than the academic heirs of that tradition.” Felix Somary who became one of the founders of Swiss private banking. Richard Schüller, one of the best-connected diplomats of his time, who played an equally underestimated role in the return to peace after the World Wars and the independence of small post-war Austria.  The difference between the Prussians of that era and their focus on Politics, VS the Austrian focus on culture and enterprise. “In the Austrian empire, a limited group of merchants had been granted total economic freedom and tax exemptions to make up for the relative backwardness of the empire. Successful entrepreneurs gathered in Vienna, and their quickly rising wealth brought leisure without political clout, influencing, among others, people like Menger and Hayek.“ “In a way, they resembled the Scottish Tobacco merchants whose leisure and similar distance from the state had fostered the Scottish Enlightenment. And there had indeed been old intellectual connections through Scottish and Irish monks and the scholastic tradition.” How did Switzerland emerge in the first place? Switzerland and Alpine Regions as microcosms and remnants of the glory of Europe. Emergent VS Top Down enlightenment. Who were the Fabians & the Jacobins? What is their view & model of the world? Why has that remained so appealing? Does Bitcoin change that? This was an incredible conversation and one that I hope you will learn alot from. Rahim made a book recommendation: “The Raven of Zurich” Go pick that up.

Psychedelic Series Pt 3. The Spiritual Realm. Will Spencer & Tomer Strolight. Ep 94
Psychedelic Series Pt 3. The Spiritual Realm. Will Spencer & Tomer Strolight. Ep 94
Can you enter the psychological realm without also entering the realm of spirit? And what are the consequences of the latter? Welcome to the third Episode of The Psychedelic Series on The Wake Up Podcast. Will Spencer & Tomer Strolight join me to discuss a wide range of ideas, both for and against the use of such substances. This is one of the best, and most requested series I've recorded. More episodes coming up, and each will cover topics listed below, and more: What are psychedelics? Why Psychedelics? Why did you choose to take this side of the discussion? Why does it matter so much to you? What is your story of psychedelics? Did it make you more open or close minded? What’s your position on Ego? What’s your position on Masculine & Feminine energies? What’s your position on trauma? Are you familiar with the Adlerian School of Psychology? Do you sit in the cause or effect side of the universal equation? Who are people you respect. Current and ancient figures. Why? What values do you respect in individuals? What social norms do you think matter most, and which are we missing? Do you think the world has issues right now that are resultant of liberalism or conservatism? Do we live in a society that is over-medicated? Are people weaker as a result of always having a cushion? Thoughts about the normalisation of these substances in the modern age & their use by the ‘average person’? Thoughts on their use as ‘medicines’? Thoughts on their use as shortcuts or even pathways to ‘enlightenment’? “Beware of Unearned wisdom” Are psychedelics a tool? If so, then are they not neutral? And if neutral, are most people not good candidates for this? If no, then why are they strictly good? Are we not seeing the effects of a civilisation in moral decay because everything is liberated, progressive and relative? Everything is apparently an illusion anyway, so fuck structure, fuck order, fuck ego and fuck authority. Is this not a danger? + So much more. Tune in for the month of November to go down this rabbit hole. You will NOT be disappointed.

Ep 91. Principles of Biblical Masculinity with Elliot Hulse
Ep 91. Principles of Biblical Masculinity with Elliot Hulse
"Respect goes up, Love comes down" - Elliot Hulse This is a show I've wanted to do for a very long time. Elliot is someone I've respected since my early 20s when I watched his strong man and "Yo Elliot" videos on YouTube. In fact, it was around when YouTube first started. Crazy shit. I've watched him transform, as I have transformed, and here we are more than a decade later having a discussion about topics of the utmost importance. Masculinity. Frame. The Bible. We covered alot. I asked him about his journey from Strong man into Christianity  From Boy into Man. We discussed: Rites of passage Ego death. Frame Attitude Purpose. Responsibility Aggression And something he said recently, which I found very, very powerful: "Respect goes up, Love comes down" We spoke about the point at which Chaos meet Order. And how modernity has both weakened the Masculine and eroded the Feminine. How we're simultaneously experiencing excessive stultification of false order and excessive moral relativism and feminine chaos. I asked about the relationship of all this to the French Revolution The initial tearing down of the Patriarchy, figuratively and literally speaking The erosion of Fatherly rule in the family,  How much was Louis 16th to blame? Had he been more framed, would this have happened? And lastly... Men Marry, Women are given in marriage. The passing of the Authority. The Dowry Father's relationship to the boy VS the girl. There's alot more. This has to be one of my best shows. Enjoy. Check out Elliot's Work Here: https://www.youtube.com/user/elliottsaidwhat https://www.makemenstrongagain.com/ https://www.instagram.com/elliotthulse/ And check out a couple of his videos on Biblical Masculinity which inspired me to reach out to him: Short: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=50ggIWBzSAw&t=19s Full clip: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DksVcufmvkU ____________________________________ Thanks again for listening.

Where are you on religion & christianity these days? How does Bitcoin fit within this? Why do you think Bitcoin is facing headwinds.

Read 11. Ego is NOT the Enemy, by Svetski
Read 11. Ego is NOT the Enemy, by Svetski
Taking a little detour from Bitcoin history, and into Trigger-territory this week. My latest article, is the first I've done in a LONG time that is not Bitcoin-centric, but life & philosophy centric. I'm tired of all the "Ego death" myopia out there, spouted by faux philosophers like Ryan Holiday and their brainless acolytes who are simply empty vessels, easily influenced by vague platitudes like "no suffering & no self". In this essay, I make the case for the necessity of the Ego, and suggest that you as a human, alive with a mind, body & soul, pay this ancient, emergent construct of nature (or gift of God), some respect. Your Ego is your Character and your Personality. "Ego Death" is nothing to proud of, nor something top be pursued. If that's your life's mission, you're an immature moron. I hope this is triggering for those with fragile Egos, and for those who have the strength of character and fortitude of Ego, I hope you find it an argument with merit.

Read 10. Bitcoin is NOT Democratic, by Beautyon. 2014
Bitcoin history continues, with a slightly later piece than the prior. Only 3 years of difference, but certainly the next Era of Bitcoin. You can see the fidelity of the thinking increase and the level of glorious 'toxic' defence emerge. Beautyon is a true champion of Bitcoin and he gets it more than most ever have or ever will. Once again, reading it today is humbling, e specially when you realise it's more than 8 years old. The patience and foresight is staggering.

Ep 80 Masculine & Feminine Erosion with Nozomi Hayase
Ep 80 Masculine & Feminine Erosion with Nozomi Hayase
Nozomi is a Bitcoiner & Liberation psychologist, basically the equivalent of an Austrian economist in the psychology space. Back by popular demand, this is part 2 of the Masculine - Feminine series, which used her recent piece as inspiration: https://nozomihayase.substack.com/p/bitcoin-the-networked-messiah?s=w In this ep, we explore: The brain split: - Right brain: instinct & intuition. The primordial void. - Left brain: Focus, order and structure. The abstracted order. Man VS Boy - Role Models - The founding fathers - Instinct & innate wisdom - The lack of framed men. - Their feminisation The founding fathers had foresight and used instinct / innate wisdom when forming the constitution. This was strong masculine. Thomas Jefferson (Man) VS Alexander Hamilton (Boy) How Society preys on our disintegration Whether the old stories, like Disney’s Beauty & The Beast, were actually useful. The problem lies not with “acceptance”, but with the functional interpretation in the world. And so much more.

Ep 79: The Networked Messiah with Nozomi Hayase
Ep 79: The Networked Messiah with Nozomi Hayase
Nozomi is a Bitcoiner & Liberation psychologist, basically the equivalent of an Austrian economist in the psychology space. Back by popular demand. In this episode, we explore her latest piece, Bitcoin; The Networked Messiah. https://nozomihayase.substack.com/p/bitcoin-the-networked-messiah?s=w And in particular, dive into the relationship, symbiosis and attempted erosion of both the Masculine and Feminine. Questions we ask include: - Where is something like religious authority important? - Earned VS decreed authority - The Shadow sides of the Masculine and Feminine - Is there a difference between instinct & intuition? My argument that modernity is caught in the struggle of the shadow of the feminine. Tyranny, passive aggression, we’re all in this together, collectivism and deceit are all feminine characteristics Is the relinquishing of power a transformation of the strong, protective masculine, into a dependant feminine. It seems as though the attempt is to dissolve the ego and the individual into the mass of the collective is the transformation into feminine. When we remove the ego, the individual, the masculine, we end up with the problem we have The confused world is a mixture of the simultaneous erosion of both masculine, rational structure and the intuitive, feminine relationship to nature. Hence why it seems to be a complex problem. The founding fathers had foresight and used instinct / innate wisdom when forming the constitution. This was strong masculine. This was a KILLER episode. Jack in and listen.

Read 9. On the Potential Adoption and Price Appreciation of Bitcoin in the Long Run. 2011 !!!
Bitcoin history continues, with another magnificent piece from mid 2011. Once again, it's as if it was written last year, and is one of the pieces of Bitcoin History which you just have to look at and marvel. http://cs702.wordpress.com/2011/05/29/on-the-potential-adoption-and-price-appreciation-of-bitcoin-in-the-long-run/ This one is written by cs702. He nails everything from MoE to SoV arguments, some basic math on price appreciation, the demonetisation of gold, the adoption by Salvador and so much more. Very, very, very impressive piece of historic Bitcoin literature. I hope enjoy this one and if you like what we're doing here with the reads, send us a comment via a "boost" on Fountain or any value-for-value app. https://play.fountain.fm/show/KGEglVpdWo4zXQWR3X7G And of course, subscribe to the channel across all the mediums you're on.

Ep 78: Money Messiah Pt 5. "Alchemy & The Philosopher's Stone" with John Vallis
Ep 78: Money Messiah Pt 5. "Alchemy & The Philosopher's Stone" with John Vallis
"The alchemists interpreted reality as having a fractal-like structure, and that therefore truths revealed in the microcosm, could be applied to the macrocosm, and visa versa" The series continues... John and I explore Alchemy - an absolutely fascinating subject. If you've not yet listened to part 1, 2 3 and 4 go back and listen to that first for fuller context. Episode #70, #71, #72 and #77 In this episode, we ask: - What is Alchemy? - What was its pursuit? - Why is Satoshi “The Alchemist”? - Is Bitcoin The Philosopher's Stone? - Are Bitcoiners the modern Alchemists? - Why do some people succumb to Bitcoin Derangement Syndrome? - What is a Heirophany? And are Bitcoiners the first of the regenerative hero’s to undergo the process of internal value re-organisation? --> Carl Jung refers to these people, who are first to encounter such novelty, as the ‘most refined and differentiated minds of the age’, who ‘detect emergent anomaly, and begin the process of adaptation to it, long before the average person notices any change whatsoever in circumstance. This was one of my favourite discussions.

Ep 77: Money Messiah Pt 4. "The Hero Archetype" with John Vallis
Ep 77: Money Messiah Pt 4. "The Hero Archetype" with John Vallis
Ep 77: Money Messiah Pt 4. "The Hero Archetype" with John Vallis "The Messiah is the Peak Hero" The series continues with John and I delving into some sticky topics around "The Hero Archetype". I push him on the idea of nature trumping nurture, and we wind up in all sorts of places including the gradations of consciousness, reincarnation, Ego, Paradigm shifts and more. We define the regenerative hero; He who is able to bring forth an optimal mode of being and makes sophisticated balance of chaos and order. The best money and the regenerative hero developed similarly. Both are a symbol, and a means to establish the  highest form of truthful order.  All related to his groundbreaking piece; Money Messiah. If you've not yet listened to part 1, 2 and 3, go back and listen to that first for fuller context. Episode #70, #71 and #72.

Read 7. The Milgram Experiments. "The most dangerous superstition" by Larken Rose
In this episode, we take a moment to explore The Milgram Experiments, and people's propensity to inflict pain on another, by virtue of obeying perceived authority. This is such a powerful idea, and one that sits at the bedrock of the whole Remnant / Parasite / Masses framework. In future I'll do one the Asch experiment also. This is a fantastic book I hope enjoy the excerpt.

Read 6. "I'm Just Doing My Job". Excerpt from "The most dangerous superstition" by Larken Rose
In this episode, we read an excerpt from the great book by Larken Rose; "The Most Dangerous Superstition". We explore a series of things including: - "I'm just doing my job" syndrome - The idea of a "Law Enforcer" - Morality  - Free Will And what I think is one of the most poignant points, the fact that the most dangerous thing people can do is not malevolence or violence, but blindly obeying orders.

Ep 72: Theology & Mythology. Money Messiah Pt 3 with John Vallis
"Money is to Markets, as God / Value is to Consciousness" This marathon of a podcast was too long, so we've split it up into be a multi-part series exploring John's incredible "Money Messiah" article from earlier this year. If you've not yet listened to part 1 and 2, go back and listen to that first for fuller context. Episode #70, and #71. Part Three: A discussion on Mythology & Theology. Myths emerged as narratives as a means to teach us a meta.  Modes of being / operation. Pagan, multi-variant gods as a map for multiple personalities for multiple contexts. Mono-theistic god as the highest truth, the greatest good. We ask a few thorny questions about Christianity and its expansion. We talk about Nietzsche and "The Will to Power" Who ask; "who defines good"? And...Is there a thing such as a “greater good” ? Is God: The thing of highest value? The thing of greatest truth? The highest good? The good is seeing / acting with a more truthful orientation? Hence morality? Hierarchies as an aggregate of values The market as an aggregate of hierarchies All of this, and a whole lot more. Stay tuned for Part 4 and 5 of this mini-series!

Ep 71: Money Messiah Pt 2 with John Vallis
"The highest value becomes our god; the point where comparative values dissolve" This marathon of a podcast was too long, so we've split it up into be a multi-part series exploring John's incredible "Money Messiah" article from earlier this year. If you've not yet listened to part 1, go back and listen to that first for fuller context. It's Episode #70.   Part two begins pulling apart the article itself starting with the big question: What is value & where does it come from? Key words that we use to help understand value are: - Limitation - Sacrifice  - Exclusion - Selection - Focus - Prioritisation  All of course related to the concept of Hierarchies. Another incredibly important idea that Jordan Peterson has popularised. We then dive a little into: - East VS West - And how one is perhaps more liberation oriented, while the other more responsibility centric. We talk about Nirvana and Satori. Reaching a point where comparative values dissolve. Is this state the "Apex state" and the goal we're aiming for, or just a way / direction? We come up with the idea of "the interstitial nature of satori and value". Then we related it to Spiral Dynamics. This was a fascinating section. We talk about "The highest value becomes our god" We compare or relate everything against that primary value. And a whole lot more. Stay tuned for Part 3 of this mini-series!

Ep. 69. One Million Bitcoin Supply Cap w/ Knut Svanholm
This episode was going to be called the The Logan & Thor show. Listen up to hear why. In it, we dive into this idea of “The Sat Squeeze” We discuss why 1 million Bitcoin (or less) will actually be available in the long run. The rest will be lost, frozen or inaccessible. We explore The numerator VS the denominator in Knut’s now-famous “everything divided by 21m” We ask: - Does infinity or 1m come first? - How do we know what’s lost / inaccessible? - Why is bitcoin still $40k? - What happens at Sat - cent parity. We explore the idea of “knowing is owning”. “When knowing is owning, the nature of institutions changes” Knut calls us “The trial generation of Bitcoin” Which is true. We are the very beginning. We discuss the idea of an “Informational element” - Alchemists should’ve been looking to replicate the properties of gold - Non-physical element - Information is not just metaphorically valuable, but literally.

And we closed out with a discussion on the short story he wrote for The Bitcoin Times, entitled; "The being that changed everything" You can find that here: https://medium.com/the-bitcoin-times/the-being-that-changed-everything-a3a22a97af3b Finally we also touched on two other works of Art by Tomer: Bitcoin is generational wealth: https://youtu.be/3Rnqst5qCgA Tomer's new book: Why Bitcoin: https://whybitcoinbook.com Follow Tomer here: https://twitter.com/TomerStrolight ____________________________________ Thanks again for listening.

Ep 66. Technology & Tournament Males (Meta Series Pt 2)
Ep 66. Technology & Tournament Males (Meta Series Pt 2)
Ep 66: Technology & Tournament Males (Meta Series Pt 2) Trav, aka Parabolic Trav, aka Meta Trav joins me again for Part 2 of the Meta Series. In episode 2, we dive into: - Technology - Tournament Males (what they are, how they arose) - The Code of Man - Frame - Chivalry - Polygamy - Hypergamy - Evolution - Religion - Morality - Feminism - Adaptation & Fitness This episode (in fact, this entire Series) is one to be listened to over again. Some highlights: "Evolution is like a difficulty adjustment" "We transcend the environment, and then warp/change it, so we're then un-adapated, and have to adapt once again." "The transition process is a crisis" "The full manifestation of frame is sovereignty." "Morality is a constraint" "Feminine is unconstrained instinctual, and hence immoral" "Polygamy is unstable, and destabilises the era of the tournament male" "Religion comes along with monogamy to correct the instability" Evolutionary Pressure on humans occurs quicker than what we're told, eg: - Modern Hysterics (Homo Hystericus) - Homo Bitcoinicus What it means to be a Tournament male: The tournament male trains to master the exponential technology of the day that can transform effort into disproportionate returns Size difference over the women. They need to be physically imposing, physically dangerous. You need to work out. Be strong. Know how to fight. Be healthy. You need to be smart. You have to combine the cerebral and physical Courage. Must be willing to stomach risk. Must have options, and the attitude that comes with that. Highly Generous. Always sharing with the tribe, and the lower classes. Care about their bloodline. You become a higher status and you want to instantiate that in your offspring. They optimise "pure blood". They're immune to guilt and propaganda. They understand brotherhood. Tournament males in a group are exponentially more powerful than singular, competitive males. The pair bonder may be jealous and more inclined to betray bro's for hoes. They do what they want to do. They're not They care about how they look. Best dressed in the cultures. TM's are always king head first into entropy Ability to find a balance between courage and stupidity. You're willing to bear the consequences of the frame you've chosen to project. Responsibility and the age of responsibility. Bitcoin is perfect frame. Frame is responsibility - Standards - Interests - Habits Reconciling religious guilt VS not having guilt as a framed man. - Guilt is when you deviate or break frame. - Our goal as men is to unite with the ultimate frame of the divine. How do you build this frame? - Together. Brotherhood. There is so much more.

How we must conduct ourselves, for it is WE, The True Bitcoiners, who shall inherit the earth. In this episode, we explore: Why is conditioning so effective. Nature VS Nurture. Masters & Slaves UBI - good / bad / dumb / accelerant? Honesty & Privacy ? Privacy = Selective Honesty. What is Bushido? --> Japanese word that literally means "warrior way". Bushi: "warrior" = literally 'military + man'. Do: road, or way Bushido is also used as an overarching term for all the codes, practices, philosophies and principles of samurai culture. Bushido formalized earlier samurai moral values and ethical code, most commonly stressing a combination of sincerity, frugality, loyalty, martial arts mastery and honour until death It allowed the violent existence of the samurai to be tempered by wisdom, patience and serenity A code often unuttered to unwritten. Requires a rite of passage, and in order to become a Samurai, one must master this code. Variations by clan, by tribe and by territory.

Ep. 64 Free Private Cities
Ep. 64 Free Private Cities
I’m joined by Titus Gebel creator of the Free Private Cities concept, CEO of Tipolis and Peter Young, MD of Free Private Cities Foundation. In the midst of the political madness rampant in the world today, ie; a cold, scam war of the people over the past 2yrs wasn’t enough, so it’s now time for a hot war…..I wanted to explore alternatives and how we can work on getting the fuck out of this mess. We covered a broad range of topics, including: >Why Free Private Cities change the incentive structure of the standard social Democratic political model, helping people lower their time preference and preserve capital into the future >Why it’s important to move beyond complaining about the status quo, and make a concrete business proposal backed by real investment >The progress that is being made in Free Private Cities-aligned projects like Próspera and Morazan in Honduras. What successes there have been and what risks there are to the projects >Why bitcoin will provide the financial infrastructure for Free Private Cities >Why Bitcoin City represents an opportunity for El Salvador to innovate in the realm of governance, in addition to their innovation in the realm of bitcoin adoption > How scale matters for governance > Welfare, Work & Immigration > Why do people push back on this idea when it’s so evidently superior? > Are the current incarnations of private cities fee-based or do they have to operate some form of tax model because of current statist & globalist organisations? What does the future look like? - Patchwork or league of private city-states? - CEO-Kings What are the risks? - Contractual changes - Relationship with host nation. - Property acquired in a private city being confiscated. The only long term way to ensure governments of any kind remain service providers, and not devolve into overlords, is to keep them economically accountable. Without bitcoin, we don’t get private cities. With Bitcoin, it’s not just necessary, it’s inevitable. Placing the money in the realm of the physical laws on nature. The most powerful private property.

Ep 63. Free Speech, Red Pill, Orange Pill
Matt Bilinksy, Media & entertainment & tech attorney in LA, Host of The prevailing narrative Built a solid following online around speaking common sense. We start with a bit of background and an origin story - Personal life - Inspirations - Coming to terms with wtf is going on in Cali Nature & Nurture Why is free speech important? Why is it important to be truthful? Map & Territory The dangers of not speaking freely (eg; self censoring) When people are unwilling to gave good faith discussing within the boundaries of reasonable disagreement. If you see a ghost, walk into it. Making free speech profitable again. Maslow's Hierarchy America worked because of the frontiersman spirit and innovation. Oil, Steel, Electricity and then the technology revolution. Governance does not work at scale. Look at USSR. Tried to merge everything altogether, it all fell apart. Is the US better off without a federal government altogether? Why Bitcoin, not Shitcoin Shitcoiners are just looking to perpetuate the existing scam How we change things and bring back sanity Funding your Jailers This is an Orange-Pill episode, and for those who area already familiar with my work, I hope it gives you insight into how to orange pill other Remnants.

Ep. 62 Nietzsche, Morality & Artificial Intelligence.
Ep. 62 Nietzsche, Morality & Artificial Intelligence.
Robert Malka, researcher, philosopher and Bitcoiner joins me for a monster episode to discuss Artificial Intelligence, Philosophy, Morality, Bitcoin, Nietzsche and so much more. We start with a bit of background and what has to be the most incredible origin stories I've ever heard. - His experience having been born to deaf parents - Some incredible stories growing up as child sign language interpreter - Inspirations such as Nietzsche & Heidegger - Ayahuasca and psychedelics - When they're fiat and when they're actually useful. - The productisation of psychedelics as panaceas to ailments and all the world's problems. - Nature VS Nurture We then dug into Philosophy & Morality - Rousseau and Nietzsche - Humanity is a a multi-generational process. - A genius is a full answer to this process. - How do you define morality? - Living in accordance with evolution and life. - Morality is the increase of carrying capacity of life. - Aesthetics & Beauty, and their relationship to morality. - Humour as a very interesting measure for humanity The AI discussion: The stakes of AI: Game-theoretically, if an AI is more powerful than we are, we'd have two choices: 1. a Libertarian AI or, 2. an Authoritarian AI, - Which would win? - What happens when AI becomes widely modifiable and accessible? - Preferences and more importantly, which preferences? - If subjective ones, are they rooted in morality or utilitarianism? - The circular logic of using quantities to measure qualities - What it means for an AI to be human-centered Problem with The Standard Model: Machines, similar to humans, are intelligent to the extent that their actions can be expected to achieve their objectives. Instead: "Machines are beneficial to the extent that their actions can be expected to achieve our objectives” But more ethical and moral problems with this, and it's focus purely on utility as the outcome. How does AI emerge? Will we be programming it? Or will it emerge and mimic us. How does Bitcoin fix this? The question will be one of whether or not we've baked morality into our DNA. Homo Bitcoinicus. There so much more in this episode. You need to listen. Finally, some books recommended by Robert include: - The Drama of the gifted child: Alice Miller - Emile: Rousseau - Human Compatible: Stuart Russell - Twilight of the Idols: Nietzsche - Warspeak: Lise Van Boxel - What is Life: Erwin Schrödinger Follow Robert's work at: Malkarobert.com ___________________________________ Thanks again for listening.

Ep. 60 Bitcoin as a Pioneer Species w/ Brandon Quittem
Ep. 60 Bitcoin as a Pioneer Species w/ Brandon Quittem
In Ep 60, one of my favourite Bitcoiners in the world, Brandon Quittem joins me to talk about #Bitcoin as a Pioneer Species. He recently wrote an incredible essay, perhaps one of the GOAT's. Exploring Bitcoin & Mining Through the Lens of Ecology By @bquittem https://medium.com/@BrandonQuittem/38f42ecdbb88 In this episode, we explore ALOT. Why both Energy & Energy industry is widely misunderstand, How it results in poor decision making Big climate and ESG is a scam → we need to wake people up (otherwise they’re just agents waiting to be activated) Energy abundance SHOULD be universally desired (it fits the traditional progressive agenda, but they’re blind to it) GDP per capita = directly correlated to energy consumption Bitcoin mining is the hardest part of bitcoin Bitcoin mining is everything you don’t understand about energy combined with everything you don’t understand about Bitcoin. “There is no optimistic version of the future in which humanity does not use significantly more energy than it does today.” Symbiosis: Miners + Energy producers How life colonizes a desolate environment for the first time. Miners = Citadel seeds Central Planning VS Emergent Organic, Decentralised Calculation & Action. The idiots want to simplify humanity into a linear system, and the only way to do that is to transform diverse individuals into automatons, or numbers on a spreadsheet. We could just as easily be a failed experiment of life, but we won’t stop life 100bn people theory Energy mastery Stars & the Great Lie Explore VS Exploit Ecology is primarily about energy (base of pyramid is plants) Difficulty adjustment (isle royale) -- wolves vs moose Prediction 1: Bitcoin Mining leads to Energy Abundance Prediction 2: Early adopter countries will leapfrog laggards Prediction 3: The Great Spreading Out These citadels must succeed, for they have an important duty. They must preserve the spark of freedom, for I fear it’s more fragile than we know. Freedom is upstream of prosperity Must Read Books: Vaclac Smil: Energy & Civilisation Alex Epstein: The Moral Case for Fossil Fuels Bjorn Lomborg: False Alarm Thankyou @bquittem for this magnificent piece and this conversation,.
