The Right and Republicans and Conservatives:

Conservatism is a philosophy that promotes retaining traditional social institutions in the context of culture and civilization.

Central tenets include “tradition”   “hierarchy and authority”      more extreme seek a return to “the way things were.”     A general defense of social and economic inequality.       Having power threatened and trying to win it back.

“American conservatives consider individual liberty, within the bounds of conformity to American values, as the fundamental trait of democracy, which contrasts with modern American liberals, who generally place a greater value on equality and social justice”

Noam Chomsky, best videos

These lectures are fantastic!   I once met a “conservative” man who said that Chomsky was a left-wing conspiracy theorist.   Some would say he is a liberal thought-leader.    Chomsky is definitely interested in the study of power and government and how the government affects the people.  I find his lectures to be really interesting and educational.

Education is a System of Indoctrination of the Young

 

Propaganda Terms in the Media

 

Totalitarian Culture in a Free Society

 

Enjoy the videos and enjoy the knowledge!

Expanding Knowledge (August 31st)

Are you ready to learn?

1.  Richard Nixon, very good documentary using his Nixon Tapes, pretty interesting language

 

2. Noam Chomsky.  He is a free thinker. And a Political Dissident.  He is a great resource to stimulate the mind.   He was inspired a lot by John Dewey.

 

3. Ryan Holiday is a nice source of knowledge.  Ryan reads often and he is successful.  He is kind of self-made.   He is also a proponent of STOIC philosophy.

 

I think this stuff will be somewhat thought provoking and provide good insight.

Learning Philosophy

Philosophy can be daunting.

It can be a difficult subject.  Much time within the abstract.

A great source to learn Philosophy is RICK RODERICK!  He was a towering man and he is currently dead.

He is a strong man with a powerful voice.  He became famous through his lectures with the THE TEACHING COMPANY!

If you need someone to explain various philosophies to you, Rick Roderick is a great start.
