Sooner Or Later, I’m Really Going To Tick You Off

Hey there!

I get a lot of support and a very small amount of pushback on what I say in these videos.

And most people seem to appreciate the fact that I try really hard to think through the issues and challenges I talk about (and try to help you solve) before I share with you my take on things.

But sooner or later, you and I? We’re going to have a parting of the ways.

It’s inevitable.

Hope this helps!

David

  1. I appreciate you so very much, David, and can’t imagine being upset by anything you might say!
    So honored and grateful for the chance to be one of your students!

  2. It was interesting seeing a conversation thread today where someone said something opinionated and it drew down a barrage of bile from one person. People often don’t confront friends or colleagues because they value that relationship. In the Information Age, it seems that some people will gladly fire both barrels at someone they don’t know and feel pretty darn good about it.

    Mature, emotionally intelligent people can live with the fact that not everyone in the world will be exactly the way they want others to be. So far I haven’t disagreed with anything you’ve said…and yet at the same time I *have* tried some other things that don’t always line up with your teachings.

    The interesting thing is that most of the time I end up coming back to the conclusion that the stuff you teach makes sense.

    The stuff you feel or say, well, if I ever don’t agree with it, I can wear grown-up pants and not feel the need to take all my toys and go home. 🙂

  3. This may be completely off thread but –
    According to ARI, Ayn Rand Institute, Objectivists don’t trust or like Libertarianism (because it’s lacking clear principles). Don’t know if it’s mutual. I still think you can be both in some circumstances.
    By the way, Mark Pelligrino, who plays Lucifer on “Supernatural,” is speaking on cinematic art at OCON in August this year. I’m going just to see him, not just because I am a fan but because he is starting a new political party, the American Capitalist Party. Just what we need now, a third party based on free enterprise. Exciting.
