    I’m confused, you say the person who is an expert on the Qua ran should be respected, but someone who is an expert to the same level about the Lord of the Rings is a geek?

    I’m confused, you are asking what emotion you get from science? Science has nothing to do with emotion. We leave that to philosophy.

      I fall out when they start talking about the science of it…lets compare these issue to real life expereinces, where real people life and then see how we can create a way to get into there real life and see how we can alter there thinking and how we can create a more inclusive person who is open to all and others thinking….

    Hey Hunter,

    I was curious as to what you thought of (provided you listened to it) the much-anticipated debate between Sam Harris and Jordan Peterson.

    Additionally, are you ever going to have Harris on your podcast, or vice versa?

    Nice show, would like to hear more about how and when to explore kensuke (sp?), and inner conflict, perhaps as a lecture or conversation with others who have effectively walked that path.

    That said, I must note that your understanding about Somalia is backwards, when people were warring for control (government) of Somalia, or when one group had actually gained control, things were much worse then under “anarchy” (read: tribal control over smaller land masses within Somalia). Also, comparing apples to apples as is fair, Somalia would have to be compared to surrounding African states (which have all pretty much been a violent and corrupt mess since their inception), instead of to non-African states or territories in the Western world.

    http://www.peterleeson.com/Better_Off_Stateless.pdf (quote below) lays out the evidence on Somalia pretty clearly, again on the libertarian/ancap issue your philosophy of “pulling back the curtain” appears to others, without the requisite work first done on yourselves. (I’m not trying to troll here, I really think you are missing the mark on both counts, and by quite a bit.)

    That said, I think your podcast is pretty decent overall, at least when you cover the spirit/inner work/science/religion aspect in a grounded manner and aren’t “triggered” by fears of “anarchy” 🙂 (Related, your podcast with Jordan Peterson was interesting).

    .
    “The data suggest that while the state of this development remains low, on nearly all of 18 key indicators that allow pre- and post-stateless welfare comparisons, Somalis are better off under anarchy than they were under government. Renewed vibrancy in critical sectors of Somalia’s economy and public goods in the absence of a predatory state are responsible for this improvement.
