I'd like to introduce you to Stefan Molyneux, my favorite living philosopher with his most popular video entitled "The Story of Your Enslavement". Molyneux is the host of Freedomain Radio which covers a range of topics including anarcho-capitalism, ethics, education, family, philosophy, & politics. Molyneux argues for a free, Stateless society using ethics, philosophy, and logic as his tools. He is also the author of several books, all of which are available for free on his website, which operates solely on donations by the way. Check out his youtube channel stebot and www.FreedomainRadio.com if you liked this video or just want to know more.
I couldn't resist. Anyone that would like an explanation to what the Schrödinger's Cat is, here's a video that explains it nice and simply. Nothing like quantum mechanics to warp your perception of reality, or just downright confuse you.
“Minjae Lee is a young South Korean artist whose work expresses a semi-disturbing inner tension that is tough to ignore, even if you feel that you’d like to. It draws you in with its powerful colors, halting imagery and clever juxtaposition of beauty, innocence and fragility with brash, loud and aggressive.
What characterizes his work overall is drama. The ethereal females that populate most of his work exude a dark, organic tension, and it seems that even the brightest marker colors do not quite manage to save them from some sort of looming peril. Or are we, the viewers, in fact, the ones who are in danger? Whatever the case, we are drawn in, interacting on an emotional level, surprised, looking for something – Tuija Seipell”

I recently got fed up with the slowness of my PC with it's unbearably long start up times and so on. Determined to do something about it I decided to go ahead and reformat and do a clean install of Windows 7. Afterwords, I followed this de-bloating guide and I must say that I am quite pleased with the results. Reformatting is not necessary to get something out of the guide but I did it anyway. The guide is very simple to follow, I did it with no problems and it took only around half an hour. I would recommend it to anyone looking to get the most out of their PC, or at the very least speeding it up a bit. Kudos to whoever made the guide.
Any rational person would probably agree that the "war on drugs", or rather "the war on people who use drugs" should be done away with. Writer, philosopher, psychonaut, researcher & botanist Terence Mckenna shares his wisdom on the "drug problem" and why nothing will change until we have an intelligent language to talk about these substances.

Instead of choosing who you're going to blame when nothing changes again in this up coming election maybe it's time to give logic a try. In these two brief videos, Alan Moore and Robert Anton Wilson share their insights on Anarchy and why it is the only sensible and moral option. According to Max Weber, the state is an entity which "upholds the claim to the monopoly of the legitimate use of physical force". For those new to the concept of Anarchy ask yourselves, Is the initiation of the use of force ever justified and what makes it "legitimate"? Should any group of people be given a monopoly on violence? What are the implications of doing so?
