The Red Pill Curriculum

Written on November 7, 2021. Written by .

I put together this collection of videos and documentaries to help people understand the extent of government malfeasance. It will be a hard pill to swallow for some, but it is now an ethical imperative to spread the truth as the malfeasance becomes malignant. The Red Pill Curriculum

The Righteous Mind

Written on September 3, 2021. Written by .

This book talked about the moral foundations that produce different political views. It says that the morality of liberals is based on care/harm and fairness/cheating, whereas the morality of conservatives encompasses those plus authority/subversion, loyalty/betrayal, and sanctity/degradation. Haidt suggests that these are genetic traits that evolved to adapt to our ancestor’s environments. He also seems […]

The Body Keeps the Score

Written on November 17, 2020. Written by .

Very interesting and informative book about psychological trauma. I think it may be applicable to many people who don’t believe that they’ve been traumatized because trauma is a strong word, but the experience of trauma is probably more like a spectrum in which everyone has some degree of it. It explains some of the science […]

A People’s History of the United States

Written on October 1, 2020. Written by .

This book tells the history of the United States from the perspective of the common people rather than from the perspective of political leaders and elites. I think it is a useful supplement to the usual historical narrative, though for me it was quite boring and hard to get through. I finished it because I […]

Seeing Like a State

Written on May 11, 2020. Written by .

This book goes deep into a discussion of how states operate and why their central planning schemes are often very destructive. The first part of the book talks about how states attempt to make their citizens and resources more “legible”, meaning easier to measure and administrate. The second part is about “high modernism”, the naive […]

Smart and SeXy

Written on April 21, 2020. Written by .

This book is one of the most information dense books I’ve read, it felt like almost every sentence was providing a new fact and there are a ton of citations. Also one of the least politically correct books I’ve read. The first half of the book goes pretty deep into genetics related to sex chromosomes […]

The Illusion of the Self

Written on April 18, 2020. Written by .

The Buddhist concept of non-self says that the self is an illusion, but the meaning of this is subtle and requires some elaboration. First we need to distinguish what I’ll call the “concept of self” and the “sense of self”. The concept of self is what you cognitively think of yourself as. The sense of […]
