An Epic of Masculinity IV: Scholar

The Path of the Scholar is about making the unknown, known. Not simply to acquire information. Not simply to point out facts. But to march through the jungle of suspicion and skepticism into greater clarity, greater utility of knowledge, and greater prosperity based upon that utility.

An Epic of Masculinity III: Warrior

An Epic of Masculinity II: King

Is civilization technology or idea? Obviously, it is a bit of both. But in our modernity – surrounded by big data, cameras, and supercomputers that fit into our pocket – it is easy to see that we tend to favor technology and forget ideas. While at some level it is difficult to imagine "civilization" without basic technologies. From food, water, shelter, security, and reasonable personal autonomy, we do need a foundation of material to distinguishcivilization from our more prehistoric past. But once that foundation is set, what is it, technology or idea? Again, I believe it is both, both matter and have equal value. What is important is keeping them in balance, and today, ideas are falling behind, if not outright ignored. Nowhere is this more true, or more significant, than in leadership. Nowhere is leadership more taught, and more explored, than in the stories of kings, and the philosophy of kingship.

An Epic of Masculinity II: King

An Epic of Masculinity

When good men sit down, bad men stand up. When masculine virtues are ignored, masculine vices reign. When kings are told to go away, tyrants take their place. This is not just a description, but a strategy. This results in a world where a plurality of masculine figures without virtue are in leadership positions in governments, companies, and organizations. This structure is incentivized to forward and repeat the societal talking points whereby masculinity is defined as toxic. This narrative helps prevent good men from rising up. The toxic masculine narrative is the norm, of both history and today. I'm going to crush this status quo, by uplifting masculine idealism. It is a simple formula. Competence + Ethics. This is the masculine ideal. We are a species that doesn’t do well with nuance. We see so many bad men in the world and in the news, and we drift towards simple answers: men are bad. With this we forget that our last and best hope against tyranny is the development of masculin...

The Story of Philosophy

https://erochefoucauld.org/story-of-philosophy/ Philosophy is often viewed as a field of isolation, or the literal ivory tower. The word is seen as a big word, a fancy word, used by the elite, arrogant, and out of touch. That’s not what I’m doing here. Philosophy is the story of humanity and the history of ideas, and it’s meant for everyone. This episode is my attempt to answer three basic questions about philosophy. What is Philosophy? • object, and subject – 1:50 • the line, and the glue – 5:04 • letters and representation – 6:50 • if it is not anything… – 8:11 How is Philosophy Useful? • we always face this choice – 10:02 • yet we exist in two worlds – 11:20 • recurrence, and rise – 13:02 Why is Philosophy Important? • if why, then anything – 14:47 • a foundation – 17:34 • time… – 19:29 • … and space – 20:58 • the road to heaven – 23:03 • so look down – 24:29 • and look up – 24:57 • vine, and fig tree – 25:27

It is said that immature artists copy, and great ones steal. This is an excellent maxim. But who do we steal from? And what do we steal from them?

Kierkegaard's Leap of Faith & The Power of Belief in Sport

The Leap of Faith is a very abused and taken advantage of maxim. But yet it is a maxim. It is a truth we experience, in so far as all action is the conclusion of degrees of uncertainty. But therein lies the point: action. Because the leap of faith is not simply a metaphysical concept. It is not under the domain of inspirational memes and imagery. It is at its very core, the leap itself.

Kierkegaard's Leap of Faith & The Power of Belief in Sport

The passions of sport and "The Football War" of 1969

There is a quote often attributed to Plato that says "you can learn more about a person in 1 hour of play, than 1 year of work." Nowhere is this more true, or more impactful, than a global game. And there is no global game quite like the World Cup.

Ratatouille: How to be a True Revolutionary

EA philosophy that can’t be lived is like food that can’t be eaten and a kitchen isn’t a storehouse for food, any more than philosophy is a museum of ideas. A great movie to match this, in both philosophy and food-analogies, is the 2007 film, Ratatouille.
