  1. On another interesting note I think that progressive should be the new word to replace liberal haha I’m tired of that word.
  2. Conscious sports coaching regimens and dieting programs which also acknowledge pranic foods like sadhgurus cookbook and Ayurvedic medicine and trying to make meditation and lung wim hof method exercises as essential as stretching prior to a workout and after
  3. Designing programs and courses based on current social issues like income inequality or systemic racism or predictable ones. integral education(teaching or contracting yoga and meditation to schools or at least exposing them to it in American public schools) conscious and mindful children’s books creating sound boards of 444hz tones for ringtones and text tones. education and destigmatization of psychedelics through schools and non profits/ tv. WE NEED MORE TIER 2 news and independent media which won’t judge and shame people and just report the story from a spiral dynamics perspective like Gaia news network or something haha.
  4. @Epikur dna is actually constantly evolving and so is our biology lol but yes there needs to be a balance obviously... nothing wrong with homeostasis... but we all know homeostasis always fails in the long run.
  5. Thanks! no it’s okay to praise being progressive and it’s a good discussion to have because you to be honest about your opinion on why you prefer progressivism. But it’s definitely can be a toxic green ego thing if taken too far. I’d say most tier 2 things are quite progressive however and I’m not sure a turquoise stage person would have an affiliation although certain people I peg as solid turquoise like sadhguru and mooji have spoken up about politics recently.
  6. Your traditional conservative opinion is homeostasis. I’ve noticed there is not too much creative thought in a conservative opinion. Not that they are always wrong but it just seems like it’s very unoriginal, at least one side is forward thinking and creative towards solving problems while wracking their brain in experiments and tests as well as protests. It’s not really a surprise that the conservatives of tomorrow eventually adopt the current progressive opinion. It’s almost like plagiarism. Seems like one side is always denying denying denying and shaming people for new thought. And saying this and that can’t be done. I don’t know why we need this friction yea I guess too much progress turns people off but when in America have we ever had too much progress lol I’m only 25 so I’ve only been in politics for about 10 years but it seems like the conservative arguments are ancient lol.
  7. Don’t really think there is a clear answer to this. I’m sure there have been cases like this were nobody ended up dead. Both sides have merit to their arguments. I liked Trevor Noah’s comments that armed men shouldn’t be sent to a confront a drunk person who was asleep at a Wendy’s drive through though. I think so much of these situations are subconscious, maybe he wouldn’t have tried to run if he wasn’t drunk. Maybe he should’ve just been given a ride home and arrested the next day. definitely not a clear right and wrong in this case. But I think 3 shots is excessive.
  8. Yea but how one performs academically is of no bearing on how “good” their culture is unless you give It that weight. why not look at other metrics, I’ve read you constantly point to how all cultures aren’t created equal, and why is that? Because some score higher in academic tests? Seem like a logical fallacy to me.
  9. @Dutch guy why are test scores on exams in a school so indicative of how good a culture is in your eyes? why not happiness? why not emotional IQ? why not consciousness? why not creativity? why not capacity to love?
  10. Maybe all different races shouldn’t be measured through a binary - “look at how successful they are” “why aren’t they successful”. All cultures have different values but just because *stereotypically* Asian families and cultures value more of a family unit with strong emphasis on grades and less individualism (an observation not fact) and are seen to be smarter in STEM fields etc, doesn’t mean that they are doing more than any other culture. life is simply more complex than getting good grades in school and making a good family and paying taxes. We all know this, there are certain features of African race which I don’t think is a coincidence typically they are more muscular and athletic and more laid back. black people are very musically and rhythmic cally inclined as a whole more so it seems than a lot of other races (observation not fact) is this wrong? This has to do with a tradition of dancing and drumming for hundreds of centuries. Should we expect the same out of Asians or whites? Not in my opinion dont misconstrue what I type, I definitely don’t think African culture doesn’t value those things I state about Asians but my point is why do they have to? just look at Jamaican and island nations with indigenous peoples, so care free and happy, of course I would want equal opportunity as a partially black man myself but it’s crazy to think that all cultures need to be striving for the same outcomes, maybe the answer is both racism and that’s definitely part of it in the U.S. and different values, and different values are just that DIFFERENT, not better, not worse, just different and it’s what makes America and multiculturalism great in my eyes. I also do not think it’s a coincidence that creation has made it this way. As long as we get equality of opportunity I’m happy with the outcomes, but we don’t have equality of opportunity in America for sure and there’s no denying that. #blacklivesmatter
  11. I loved his appearance on I think it was morning joe. ”the us wasted 1.5 trillion in Afghanistan war while China has been building their infrastructure.”
  12. @Johnny even if it is is propaganda, what’s wrong with cutting carbon emissions and transitioning aggressively towards new and renewable energies that don’t cause planetary degradation or destruction of ecosystems. Sure the scientists could have it wrong, but I think the real propaganda is thinking that the status quo is okay and nothing needs to change.
  13. @Andrew Rogers as leo says... ALL of politics is voting to redistribute resources. What do you tell people under imminent domain when the government builds a new road or football stadium. Is that robbery? No taxes aren’t theft that’s a shortsighted argument, you overlook the Social contract, if there was no social contract and I still had to pay taxes I wouldn’t like that, but it’s an exchange, and an exchange you won’t get out of and a silly topic to argue about. lets argue about where our taxes would go and how redistributing those taxes would benefit society. you don’t have to “steal” anyone’s money if you fix the system designed to NOT redistribute unfairly and unequally in the first place. billionaires used to effectively be taxed out of existence in the USA in the FDR era (a very economically equal period, social issues aside). and now there are numerous amounts of them. billionaires should be taxed out of existence. workers should get higher wages and a percentage of profits in other benefits. if that seems radical to you then you’re part of the problem.
  14. @Leo Gura watched this and laughed when yang attacked him when he said a federal jobs guarantee does more than a ubi. In an ideal world I want both. i don’t think a federal jobs guarantee is “indentured servitude” because it’s not like you’d be forced to work, it would just be an option right? i am very worried about the plans and how we’d get them passed with Moscow Mitch in office, however, I think Bernie winning the election would be so much of a miracle that getting those things passed would have a domino effect. It really is a great movement and it’s refreshing to see a candidate so honest and in touch with people. He literally goes the picket lines and scream with people. It’s inspiring.
  15. @Serotoninluv most arguments I see online go along the lines of “ that business man has worked hard and earned that profit, taxing him and giving it to the poor is literally theft.” I personally think being a billionaire is immoral but beside the point it’s hard to get to that level of wealth without devilry. are there good and kind billionaires yes in theory but hoarding all that money is dangerous. It doesn’t do anyone any good besides to reinforce a class structure. unfortunately communism is what is demonized, and while state ownership of everything would be too extreme for this day in age, I would like to see how it could be implemented in an extremely highly conscious society. I think capitalism works so well because it promotes greed which is rampant at stage orange, like The point Leo made on his Venezuela blog that socialism could only work in a green + society. and then in his chart of political systems on the spiral, world government is yellow, something about world government screams communism esque, but the good parts of it. the best way to have a thriving economy is to have income equality, and it would be radical but it could work with the right consciousness.
