Do You Think We Should Exist In Separate
social bubbles, Never interconnecting with people. We potentially disagree with yeah that seems like the way that we would solve the world’s problems of course, not that’s why I’m committed to having conversations with people that I potentially disagree with hello. There you four and a half million miracles thank you for joining me on this journey of education today. I spoke to Tim Paul about the end of civilization, the approaching civil war the corruption in the world. The potential for redemption.
This Conversation Originally Took Place On My
podcast under the skin. Tim is reading a book that I’m reading as well called the fourth turning that talks about the great historic cycles. It’s a fascinating and interesting book and like any book that’s you know significantly thorough. There are loads of things that you might find that you disagree. with but you’ll also find many insights as well.
This Conversation Took Place On My Podcast
under the skin from luminary you can get that if you want it. In this video, we have a pretty thorough conversation about what’s happening in the world right now and it’s very very enjoyable please stay to the end and let me know what you think of it. In the comments when you were talking about the laptop example there in occupy right I know myself. I know I would have wanted to keep that laptop if I was in the position of that person, but what I and I I I don’t feel like you know. I certainly am not yet one of those great souls that would go do you know what yes share the laptop for everybody where I reckon I am, though is I really want to keep this.
Laptop I Know That This Is Wrong And
I will not keep the laptop I will yield. We must vote for what is the best outcome for this laptop and for me. This acknowledgement of fallibility. This acknowledgement of our individual flaws. The possibility for redemption in both its traditional and commonly understood meaning forgiveness and it’s more esoteric and religious meaning at least from a judeo-christian perspective you are redeemed when you are redeemed you belong back to the whole you no longer belong to yourself.
Redemption Is Something That Im.
I’m inspired by and I feel there are great souls out there and in fact, I’ll go further that that you know like so if you go through these these incremental interstitial strata as you slice down. Trying to understand a man or a woman a person you know like feel like yes on one level. I’m petty. Jealous and insecure on another level.
Im Gracious And Kind On Another Level,
I’m driven by desire and surely. Ultimately, culture is the expression of this palette of emotions that we all feel to some degree. You know or another in varying the levels of intensity and why what I believe is that there is the potential in human beings to overcome the primal drives that lead to conflict and selfishness. I believe in this. I believe it’s possible for me as an individual to overcome my own greed, my own lust, my own selfishness and I believe that’s not unique.
- world potential redemption conversation originally
- philosophical discussion really matters
- talks great historic cycles fascinating
- having conversations people potentially disagree
- tim paul end civilization approaching
I Think That Ive Been Been Fortunate Enough
to be given systems to help me overcome those feelings and I would add that I believe that my tendencies towards greed, selfishness and lust because I too feel like an you know this is my Apostasy. My apostasy is like. that I was embedded in celebrity and I believed in it and I still because of those values are not a confectionary. They are rooted in primal needs for attention power status, etc. They’re not nothing.
Its Not Like Some Sort Of Ornamental Culture
that has no basis in what you might call the real the viscerally real you know and they have been overcome through a combination of circumstance, failures experience and learning, and now. I find myself in this place through a lot of it’s through my sort of program recovery to be sort of plain and explicit to him that I think it’s possible to overcome selfishness and greed, and I I find myself believing that people are ultimately beautiful and when they behave badly. This this malady is an expression of some kind of trauma or bad, conditioning not that that that that that you know. extricates people from culpability or you know justice and consequence or any of that stuff? But there is at least somewhere to go. I’m not a nihilist and I’m not a pessimist.
Like I Believe I Have A
set of values and I feel like that you know even like you know imagine if we were to get some of them critical race theory folk on here It’s like his most vehement exponents and you know practitioners that if you were able and I know how hard it is when dealing with dogma from anywhere is the intention of this to create a more beautiful and loving world, Where is the love in you? Where is this love in you like I feel that we’d be able to get there but you know. I’m a parent and I’ve been showing my limitations on an almost daily basis when it. comes to practicing my ideas in the field The path to Hell is paved with good intentions. I think for the most part people genuinely feel they’re doing something good that is helpful, but there’s Yin Yang you know there’s there’s good there’s evil within good There is evil with an evil. There is good and you’ll end up with as much as someone can find redemption someone can find corruption so I don’t.
I Dont View That As Necessarily Pessimistic.
I think it’s just you know the balance of the universe and that you know without night there’s no day as such so we’re constantly striving to do better but I I feel like based on my experience at the very least there’s always going to be this great conflict between you know good and evil and I mean that in terms of the subjective sense of what you. feel to view to be good what what someone else views to be good the critical race theorists obviously believe they’re right the overtribalists who form a collective and adhere to the authority structure believe they’re working towards a greater good. Nobody is the villain of their own story right, but I can tell you I have met some people. I met someone during occupy wall street we discussed nihilism we discussed oblivion and the heat death of the universe and this was a brilliant individual who’s very prominent activist today and the ultimate conclusion we had in this wonderful philosophical discussion was well then what really matters other than you know what we decide matters.
My Response Was Well.
I suppose. Then I’ll choose to create a positive to the best of my abilities something positive for people or I’ll try to strive towards something that creates comfort and. love and certainly not perfect you know I have my. I am no perfect person um but but try to strive towards positivity at the very least towards creative constructivism and their response to me was sure but if nothing matters so what don’t you want to just watch it all burn and they expressed to me that their goal was to shake things up to create chaos.
So That Life Wasnt Boring Those People Exist,
you know they’re not I I don’t know if it’s evil it’s chaotic, but I do think that as much as you can find redemption for someone someone else could ultimately become I don’t know disaffected and just say what’s the point. I’ll just take the money and then you get corruption so I I I wonder if based on everything we know about the universe so far what we think we know with. The laws of thermodynamics the golden ratio um for every action there’s an equal and opposite reaction Is it futile to believe that we could ever conquer bad or do we accept that there we will just strive towards this eternal battle between two great dragons, the two Great wolves, and maybe that’s just reality I suppose you know there’s Ebbs and flows there’s waxing and waning there’s authoritarian despotism that we will try to stop, but sometimes can break through when when our guard is let down. I don’t want to believe that we’re inherently trapped in a world where you know fascists and authoritarians will keep coming to power somehow. But throughout history we can see dictators emerge.
They Kill People And Then We Stop
them and then we get comfortable and then dictators emerge so how do you convince people to pay attention when to throw back. To your point about what we’ve evolved to be? I don’t think it’s pessimistic to say, but I feel like it might not be possible so to to elaborate we only live for so long that means that our influence on this world is limited not only by the time when we’re born with the time when we die by the time. I was born. I was born in 1986 so who’s president Reagan right then 88 was was H. w Bush, but I’m too young to remember any of that.
I Enter Into An Understanding Of Politics Around
2000 as a young teenager with Bush V Gore and I still didn’t understand it. I then come to adulthood during Obama well with a lot of bush and protesting the war and stuff like that and that shapes my perspective and then Obama and biden. I had a conversation with. A socialist Vosh We’ve had him on the show my show a couple times and when I was talking about biden’s, corruption and the war in Iraq and Afghanistan. The protests against the Obama administration for the bailouts.
He Said I Was Like 15.
I have no idea what what that was he was too young so the fact that we enter into the world already in motion means our understanding of history is going to be limited and so. I don’t know if you’re familiar with strass how generational theory they call it the the four turnings and they say that we’re in the fourth turning. It’s basically that every 80 years is a great conflict that leaves a strong a strong lesson with society that leads to prosperity and then you go through the next generation where it starts to slow down the next generation where it stagnates.
And Then Finally, The Fourth Turning
is where it begins to collapse. I think that’s because humans didn’t evolve to live in a massive system like this and to retain knowledge of past lives. So of course we forget our history. So of course, we’re doomed to repeat it.
I Was Born At A Time When I
I mean I was a child when the cold war ended. I was four or five years old. I have no idea what was going on and so I don’t know the horrors of of communism the same way that my friends parents do or my parents did from watching Tv. My friends parents actually having been in the Soviet Union and having to flee so we’re born into a world just not knowing our history and when we try to learn it, we can’t really grasp what it was like to experience.
Those Moments Were Entering Now A
world where the next voting class that’s entering didn’t experience 9 11. and so they don’t understand a world before the Patriot act. The lockdowns the the warrantless spying and I feel like many.
