Beliefs, Assumptions and Mind Viruses…

It takes a strong ego to believe that you have something important enough to say, that it motivates you to write a book, launch a podcast or publish a blog.  Nothing inherently wrong with that.  But when do you cross the line from coach to propagandist, from beneficial to evil?

Elite Propaganda Masters

We could debate the motives of people who do this.  Are they calculating and conniving, or simply idealists who believe they are on this planet to “save” people with their superior intellect and ideas?  In actuality, their intent or motivation doesn’t really matter.  What matters are the results.  In this case, how you respond to people who want to program you with any set of beliefs.

Comedy, Politics and Prosperity, part one

Much like the free press protects democracy, I believe the free speech of controversial comedians protects us from some of the darkest impulses of human nature.  Great humor and satire only works when there is an element of truth to it.  Otherwise it wouldn’t be funny.
