I just finished listening to part 1 of your community college episode, and I am fascinated to hear what you’ll cover in part 2. As a student athlete and student body president, I had a unique view into what the “adults” were doing politically within the institution. While I was still incredibly idealistic at the time, I received a real world education on power play between the college’s president and the district’s superintendent— both of whom seemed to be more interested in using the system as a stepping stone to their next accomplishment than necessarily the benefit of the college or students therein. As a Political Science major, for example, I ended up having to get one of my basic general ed courses waived because it was never offered in my two years of attendance. I think the course was World Politics? Anyhow, I’m now an attorney and a homeschool mom, and so I enjoy your podcast. Cheers!

Rank #1: 495: Dr. Stephen Hicks - Postmodernism As A Political Project

Podcast cover
Read more
(Part Two) Our investigation into the philosophical roots of social justice continues... Dr. Stephen Hicks is a Professor of Philosophy at Rockford College and the Executive Director of The Center For Ethics and Entrepreneurship. He joins me today to discuss the consequences of postmodernism as a political/education project. Discussed: - Words as weapons - Do the postmodernists of the mid-20th century set out to undermine the enlightenment? - The philosophical movement has a long philosophical lineage dating back to Rousseau and the German idealists, it comes to prominence in the 1960s - What's confusing for the novice here - These people looked back the enlightenment, reason as a starting point instead of faith and superstition, how did they look at dividends that were paid, that they were the beneficiaries of, science, engineering, medicine, free markets, abolition, spreading materal wealth, emergence of leisure time, near universal literacy and not say this is something we could improve upon? But instead, this is something to be undone or attacked? - Postmodern art - Hypothesis: post-modernism is the crisis of faith for the academic left (it's how socialism moves forward) Bumper Music: "The Future's So Bright, I Gotta Wear Shades" Timbuk 3 Well I'm well aware of the world out there, getting blown all to bits, but what do I care? "After the Gold Rush" Neil Young Look at Mother Nature on the run In the nineteen seventies.

Rank #4: 326a: Logic Saves Lives Part 13 - Five Stupid Things About Libertarianism (1 of 2)

Podcast cover
Read more
Today we look at a video from self-proclaimed liberal atheist Steve Shives. Targeting libertarianism, this video is part of his "5 Stupid Things About..." collection. Many of you might enjoy some of his work, so please check out his website, stevelikestocurse.com. SERIES BACKGROUND: We are now rebooting the series for the purposes of review and expansion. Tony Myers will be the permanent co-host for these episodes. See Tony's past School Sucks contributions here, and please have a look at Tony's comprehensive notes on the science of logic here. Logic is about understanding reality in a non-contradictory way and how can we see things for what they are. Metaphysical Laws 1.Identity 2.Causality 3.Non-Contradiction Discussion With Tony Myers: -Applying the Trivium -The rhetorical approach of Steve Shives -Why this video? -Why we failed in our first attempt to record this show -Fallacies in the first 3 "Stupid Things" 1. It's selfish The most important thing in debate is proper identification; an easy way to win a debate is to define things however you want and get away with it. This allows for a rhetorical strategy we call Hedging – using words with ambiguous meanings, then changing the meaning of them later. Steve's defining characteristic - selfishness? What about property Rights? Self-ownership? The NAP? 2. It alienates people from the government I don't feel this way at all; GOVT is people and the state is a dangerous superstition. It's another religion from which we, like Steve Shives, work to free people. Philosophical implication: we should be connected to the government we have a duty or responsibility to society that libertarians are dodging 3. It's anachronistic This entire thing is the stolen concept fallacy. Requiring the truth of the something that you are simultaneously trying to disprove. Appeal to novelty - Argument: libertarianism is bad cause it's old, especially compared to the blessings of the state in the 20th century Principle: things that are old are not preferable to things that are newer definition problem again -Libertarianism as political movement in the US goes back to the early 1970s -you can go back further to some of Rand's conclusions decades earlier with respect to the fourth branch of philosophy : politics -Spooner -Discourse on Voluntary Servitude, or the Anti-Dictator, mid-1500s it's still like 4000 years newer than the state Music: Traditional - "Faith Is the Victory" Joan Osborn - "What If God Was One of Us?" Traditional - "Adestes Fideles" Norman Greenbaum - "Spirit In The Sky" Kutless - "What Faith Can Do" Look Closer: 2 Aristotle Logic from History and Philosophy of Science Will Durant - The Story of Philosophy - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Story_of_Philosophy Tragedy & Hope Communications - http://www.tragedyandhope.com/ Trivium Education - http://www.triviumeducation.com/trivium/ Logical Fallacies Handlist - http://web.cn.edu/kwheeler/fallacies_list.html

Rank #5: 622: Moritz Bierling On Achieving Full Agency Inside All Arenas

Podcast cover
Read more
Moritz Bierling returns for another marathon conversation about how individuals can be navigators of increasingly complex and dysfunctional communications arenas. The primary focus is what Moritz refers to as the Agent/Arena Relationship. Arenas - be they social, political, cultural, or economic - are breaking down all around us, and many people struggle to figure out how to adapt and thrive (or maybe just survive) in this flux. We talk about how to achieve stability through adaptability in these situations. One of the keys is the building of "internal coherence" or self-integration. Dis-integrated selves cannot be the building blocks of harmonious or even sustainable groups or institutions. Such harmony requires individual agents with the ability to read and understand the dynamics of the larger arena. Moritz also discusses his related professional mission: converting people to their own cause. It connects to an idea we've been talking about on SSP since 2010: identifying and expanding one's sphere of control, and not operating outside of that sphere.

Rank #7: 475: When Antifa Attacks - Post-Modernism In Practice At The University of Toronto

Podcast cover
Read more
Canadian College Correspondent Geoffrey "Biffo" Liew returns to discuss the latest dust-up at U of T, where Antifa protestors disrupted The Toronto Action Forum on Free Speech and Fiscal Policy. Biffo was one of the organizers of the event (working with Students In Support of Free Speech and Generation Screwed), which featured Rebel Media's Ezra Levant, Professor Jordan Peterson, Professor Janice Fiamengo and many others. Our conversation moves back and forth between Biffo's reporting on Antifa behavior at the college, and Peterson's warnings about social justice warring and the post-modern ideas that underlie it. Biffo is a University of Toronto student, the organizer of the now infamous University of Toronto Rally For Free Speech, and a longtime listener to the School Sucks Podcast.

Rank #8: 584: Thank You John Taylor Gatto

Podcast cover
Read more
In Remembrance 1935-2018 A monologue about the courageous life and work of John Taylor Gatto, and the story of how he changed my life. How many teachers reluctantly acknowledge the failure of mass compulsory schooling? How many become disheartened but then relegate themselves to quiet conformity? How many hunt for the villains, but simply wind up sniveling behind the closed doors of the teachers’ lounge, choosing to blame children and parents? If you've worked in or around the public schools - or even if you simply endured the requisite 15,000 hours as a student - you're likely able to form some rough estimations for these questions. Yet how powerful is the voice of the teacher with the conviction to take action and speak out? In 1991, at the dawn of the information age, John Taylor Gatto was named the New York State Teacher of the Year. Within months of receiving that recognition he resigned, quite publicly, in the op-ed section of the Wall Street Journal. At this time, John was in his mid-fifties. He had a family. He had little savings, and he resided on the notoriously not-affordable island of Manhattan. It was a bold move to say the least, but it marked the beginning of a beautiful new career in education. And he inspired many others to cut their own divergent paths.

Rank #9: 542: Peter Gray (Part One) - Foundations of Self-Directed Education

Podcast cover
Read more
Part One of Three Dr. Peter Gray is a research professor of psychology at Boston College, and author of Free to Learn: Why Unleashing the Instinct to Play Will Make Our Children Happier, More Self-Reliant, and Better Students for Life. Peter serves on the Organizing team for the Alliance For Self-Directed-Education. He also runs a blog on Psychology Today called Freedom to Learn, where he regularly explains and promotes self-directed education from a variety of angles. Today Peter and I discuss how he distinguishes school from education, how school is disruptive to our "educative instincts," and the biological foundations of self-directed education. In other words, children come into the world biologically designed to learn. These foundations include: - Curiosity: the need to make meaning out of our surroundings - Playfulness: physical, but also related to risk-taking, language games, rules, imagination, logic, building, and using the tools of culture - Sociability: a desire to share what is being learned - Planfulness: thinking ahead, "self-directed executive functioning" In part two we'll discuss creativity and critical thinking. In part three we'll Peter's vision for education in the future.

Back to SchoolSucks! We return with an exploration of why and how we can embrace an opportunity that has never existed before in all of human history. We're talking about lifestyle entrepreneurship and location/schedule independence. Most of you will remember Kevin Geary as an integrative health coach and the founder of the very successful RebootedBody.com enterprise. Since 2014 he has been a semi-frequent and very-popular guest on School Sucks.

SixFigureGrind.com features plentiful free resources, exclusive courses and a podcast where Kevin candidly discusses his successes and failures, shares hard-won wisdom and offers advice on getting to the next level with online lifestyle entrepreneurship.

Rank #15: 363: The Trivium, Non-Violent Communication and Mind Control - A Response to Gnostic Media (Part 1 of 5)

Podcast cover
Read more
Tony Myers, Darrell Becker and I analyze and respond to the Gnostic Media presentation called “Nonviolent Communication, Pt. 1 “Is NVC Consistent with the Trivium Method?” This is Gnostic Media podcast #229, recorded on may 18th, 2015, with guest Bill Joslin. This was discussed at length in the School Sucks Facebook Group (link). Today we cover their presentation from 01:06:27 to 01:22:31, where they begin addressing the questions: is NVC consistent with the Trivium Method? can NVC replace rhetoric in the Trivium? Description from Gnostic Media: Bill Joslin at an early age developed a fascination with mind and awareness. Subsequently he spent 16 years studying Bonpo, Nyingma Buddhist and Taoist practices. He spent a year in Asia interviewing Buddhist monks in Laos, Cambodia, Nepal; Taoist practitioners in Indonesia, and Bonpo priests in Northwest Nepal, comparing practices as taught in the west with the original monasteries and traditions from which the teachings originated. Nine years ago, Bill was asked by a number of people to counsel them with mediation practices they were having difficulty with and not finding aid from their current teachers. From a sense of responsibility Bill then went through a process of questioning every aspect of meditative knowledge he had gained over those years, essentially applying critical thinking to spiritual practices. In short order the illusion of meditation, spiritual teachers, and philosophical frameworks dissolved and a concise, non-mystical view of mind, self and world emerged with simple clarity. Meditation and spiritual guru-ship is an ancient form of control, the residue of which we live with today. Professional Protesters make their way into legitimate causes by providing organization and training to sincere people. Once installed into the cause they then high jack the activities - marginalize or radicalise the participants. NVC is a core subject in activist training.

Part 3 of this series will be split into two conversations: a one-on-one with Skinner followed by a one-on-one with Moritz, allowing each of them to focus in on their areas of expertise in resolving the digital malaise we've been discussing. This malaise includes "fake news," information (or input) overload, social media fatigue, loss of privacy, no data ownership, etc... Skinner is the founder of Exosphere Academy. Exosphere Academy is a learning and problem solving community with 2-day traveling workshops and an 8-week residential program "to learn new skills, build exciting projects with other dynamic people, and jumpstart your new life & career." He is also the Founder and Chairman of Vaxios, which we'll discuss in detail in today's show. DISCUSSION: - Jaron Lanier's vision for the Internet - there is no such thing as free, only 0 cost, but even with 0 cost you still pay - sugar and septic system analogies for the current internet experience - the tenuous relationship between content creators and current content platforms - software as a private legal system - markets as price discovery mechanism - how to create a true information economy - ways to improve upon platforms like Spotify, Netflix, Patreon and Steemit - how current content platforms promote a monoculture

Rank #18: 562: Is Guilt Useful? Is Narcissism Natural? - With Thaddeus Russell

Podcast cover
Read more
This is a follow-up to Podcast #558: God, Grant Me the Serenity. Thad's presentation in that episode produced a lot of upset among listeners, and there were several aspects of the conversation that left me feeling unsatisfied. I invited Thad back to address this lack of satisfaction, along with some listener feedback to our first conversation. Topics: - Why Thad and I weren't connecting in the first discussion - Shame and guilt are information - All behavior is narcissistic? - Differing ideas about integrity - Nathaniel Branden and the Six Pillars of Self-Esteem Listener Input: Scott M. - I thought it was a fascinating conversation. I think the premise of Thad’s that I found most problematic was how he defines his politics of self-interest. From what I can determine from the way he presented it on that call, his paradigm is similar to Nietzche and Stirner in that self-interest means whatever I want to the exclusion of the needs of anyone else. You attempted to counter that with a more generous understanding of enlightened self-interest that encompasses the well-being of others within a definition of self-interest, including a healthy society. I found it problematic that he interpreted your desire to contribute to the world as a form of narcissism. And it seemed to me that the only reason he saw not to drive while drunk was the possibility of getting caught and bearing the consequences. He didn’t quite say it, but it felt to me like he was on the verge of saying, if I killed or hurt someone while driving drunk it would be a bummer, but not anything I should feel guilt or shame about. While I think our culture, and religion in particular, capitalizes and abuses our capacity for guilt and shame, I agree with Branden that there are times when it’s legitimate to feel them, as with any emotion, when we’ve violated our integrity or moral code. Of course Thad doesn’t recognize the legitimacy of the very notion of morality, which is a deeper and perhaps more important issue. David G. - What bothered me most about this episode is the way the emotions of shame and guilt were dismissed as having no practical value in people's lives. I disagree. Around the 21 minute mark, Thad asks the question, "So what purpose does shame serve?.... Does it help you?" He goes on to make a distinction between shame and guilt and states general working definitions for each. Guilt: Bad feelings about things that one has done. Shame: Bad feelings about oneself. I take no issue with this distinction and these definitions. What I take issue with is Thad's insistence that shame and guilt do no one any good. I propose that feelings of shame and guilt, in the moment, can be understood as emotional signals that one is not living up to one's own personal standards. Of course, those standards are often the result of cultural programming imposed on the individual by fate, and to borrow from a previous comment, "without analyzing [this programming], we're little more than slaves to our native collective." Prolonged shame and guilt do little but create a state of ongoing internal suffering that I am perfectly fine characterizing as doing no one any good. But if taken as signals that change is required in order to put an end to the suffering associated with shame and guilt, then the feelings themselves do serve a purpose, they have value. They are cues. They signal that one of two basic things has to change: one's behavior; or one's personal standards. Or maybe a bit of both. Either one changes one's choices and behaviors and/or confronts the set assumptions/cultural programming that leading one to feel guilty or ashamed of one's behavior, or one continues to suffer those negative feelings. Around the 26 minute mark, Thad states: "Once you're clear that you don't like who you are or how you are when you're drinking, then it's very simple." Okay. Well, how does one become clear about that? Is it not through experiencing shame and guilt in a given moment? Also, I disagree, it is not simple at all. If it was simple for everyone to change the behaviors and/or personal standards/beliefs that are at the root of their shame and guilt, we wouldn't have a million and one prescriptive methods for self help and behavior change and we wouldn't have so many people racked by shame and guilt. It's not simple at all, it's an incredibly complex problem that's complicated by the fact that each individual person will need their own individual solution. It may be simple for some. It may be simple for Thad. And the realization that CHANGE (broadly speaking) is the solution, is, indeed, simple enough, but having that realization and then acting on it is not simple for everyone. Peter M. - While I was intrigued by Thad's self interest approach to sobriety, and by the idea of replacing the puritan with an accountant, I think obligation to others still has an important role to play. Thad mentioned that part of his need to be sober involved wanting to have a relationship with his son, but let's say another person struggling with addiction chose to abandon their son? I don't think that man's self interest trumps his obligation to his child. I cut 35 minutes of discussion from the final version of the show. This was a difficult decision, because it was a captivating segment and I don't want to censor anything, but I need to consider what is best for the School Sucks brand, along with respect for other recent guests. Time Is Running Out The Next Renegade University and School Sucks Project event is happening May 11-13 in the original renegade city of New Orleans. At the end of this podcast we'll discuss some of the details and the new features. For more information and to secure your spot, go to ThaddeusRussell.com/courses

Rank #19: 549: Days of Wonder - An Inspiring Model For Alternative Education

Podcast cover
Read more
Cynthia Day is the founder of and a teacher at the Days of Wonder School in Batavia, OH. I invited her on the show as part of a continuing effort to showcase successful and inspiring alternative education models, along with some of the desirable attributes of voluntary learning communities. Cynthia began her teaching career in public school, but within a matter of years she discovered that the environment and culture presented serious obstacles to addressing the emotional and educational needs of her students. I had similar experiences; we compare stories. She ultimately left teaching to focus on homeschooling her own children. When they reached adulthood, she shifted her attention into creating an alternative school that encompassed the best aspects of homeschooling. The ultimate result was Days of Wonder, which began in her basement and has now grown into a thriving K-12 alternative school serving 141 learners. Days of Wonder primarily serves young people who struggled in the public school setting, but who also didn't have access to private education. We'll discuss how Days of Wonder is able to charge a monthly tuition lower than what most people are paying for daycare. Our majority of discussion is focused on the lessons Cynthia took from her home education successes, and how she applies them to the Days of Wonder learning environment. Many parents in the School Sucks audience are currently unable to home-educate, but they see learner-centered schools as desirable alternatives. If you're a parent examining your alternative education options, here are some key attributes to look for (or to create): 1. Learning takes place in multi-age groups 2. Learning is interdisciplinary - integrated curriculum, encouraging students to actively make new connections across subject areas 3. Parents are invested in the school and see themselves as an integral of the learning community 4. Students take possession of their own learning, setting their own educational goals 5. Individualized instruction and respect for intrinsic motivation 6. No grades (we'll talk about exceptions in the show, i.e. high school transcripts) 7. Continuity of Instruction - teachers are more like mentors; they will have the same students several years in a row Learn More About Days of Wonder Related Shows: 1.
