The Unhealthy Mind when Gratitude Goes Missing Episode #34
The Unhealthy Mind When Gratitude Goes Missing Despite Democrats winning the presidency, the whole party is still wildly unhappy and dissatisfied despite having total control. In this episode, Dan Sullivan and Mark Young theorize why this is, and why things have become so politically polarized in the U.S. Even unhappier: Not being able to blame Trump for all the world’s problems anymore has made Democrats even more insufferable and unhinged. Angry combination: The combination of narcissism, envy, and a lack of gratitude makes for an angry person. Sooner or later: If you hang out with angry, unhealthy people, sooner or later you’ll catch the bug yourself. Availability bias: The trend to believe everything Democrats claim is because of the overwhelming bias of the socialist media. Confirmation bias: Social media platforms use algorithms to deliver information that matches your belief system, keeping you from seeing other points of view. Envious wants: Envious people often don’t want what the other person has; they just want the other person to not have it.

A Constitutional Crisis Episode 32
A Constitutional Crisis The problems of 2020 have continued with the federal election, but the story is not over. Mark Young and Dan Sullivan discuss how the election results do not make sense and share predictions for what will happen over the next four years. SHOW NOTES: Inside a republic: All U.S. states are democracies, but they are democracies inside of a constitutionally limited republic. Irregularities: We might see proof of the following voting irregularities: systematic disposal of votes for one candidate, and massive amounts of votes for one candidate that came in beyond the time of the normal polls closing. Odd states: In certain key states where Trump was far ahead, they stopped counting the votes with no logical explanation whatsoever. Why it’s there: The very reason the U.S. has a constitution is to protect against the ways in which election results could be manipulated. Misuse easier: Misuse of new technology is easier than the detection and the countermeasures for it. After 8: The Supreme Court might rule that no vote cast after 8:00 local time will be counted, and most of the suspected irregularities happened after that time. Still loyal: If Biden gets seated, we will have “two presidents” over the next four years, because over 70 million people will stay loyal to Trump. Now open: Trump’s personality will not allow him to come out on a loss, and he is now open to use his media power to criticize Biden’s policies, and to fundraise or campaign.

The Democratic Party places all importance on one’s group memberships and none on individuality. Dan Sullivan and Mark Young explain how seeking victimhood status only serves to make people unhappy. SHOW NOTES: Victimhood status: There’s an order of importance amongst the left that’s based on victimhood. The more of a victim you are, the more status you have. Won’t make you happy: If you’re determined to find proof that you’re a victim, you’ll find it, but none of it will help you achieve your goals. Disintegrate and collapse: During the 2020s, the Democratic Party will be the first major American political party since 1856 to disintegrate and collapse. European thought: Social justice is a European thought that has parts of socialism, fascism, Nazi-ism, and communism in it. News is nothing but opinions: You used to watch the evening news to form your own opinions, and now you listen to opinions and try to figure out what is actually news.

A shift: Donald Trump represents a shift in how America sees itself and how the rest of the world sees the U.S. Reconstruction required: There’s a massive reconstruction now required in the U.S. because, over the past 75 years, the United States has used its money to build in the rest of the world.

New heroes: People who actually do things and build things might replace the intellectual class as cultural heroes in the U.S. Rationing energy: It’s possible that while the U.S. is energy-rich, the rest of the world will be rationing energy for the next 20 years. No required alliances: Having an abundance of energy means that the U.S. won’t have to enter into military alliances with people they don’t like. Less dependent: The U.S. is better equipped to survive a trade war than other countries because they’re less dependent on selling products outside of their own country. Guaranteed trade: The easiest way for other countries to guarantee trade with the States is to move their factories to the U.S. and hire American workers. For rent: It might happen that U.S. military protection will be for rent to other countries.

Central and South: The U.S. is going to pay a lot of attention to Central America and South America, who are geographically closer and who have energy, over the next 25 or 30 years. Hatred from terror: The hatred of Trump comes from the terror that the philosophical basis and the foundations of the left are disintegrating.

America’s Frontier Attitude Toward The Future

Episode 18: Democratic Philosophies Are Un-American
While socialism can seem to be about compassion, it's really about a few people gaining power, and it's an anti-American concept. In this episode, Dan Sullivan and Mark Young talk about how the next presidential election will be a decision between the American ideal and its opposite. Diametrically opposed: The next presidential election will feature two competing philosophies that are diametrically opposed: entrepreneurism and socialism. Philosophically opposed: Every quality that's philosophically American is opposed to the Green New Deal. Bringing back: Some Democratic candidates are proposing bringing back ideas that were the reason that some people left Europe for America in the first place. Daily transactions: What changes society are the daily transactions of buying and selling things. Constantly shifting: Marketplace-determined prices for products and services are constantly shifting, which defeats the notion of central planning. Controlling power: Socialism is first and foremost about a very small number of people planning all of the transactions in society. Other people's money: Socialism is great for some people, but it has to be paid for with other people's money. No competing: Socialism is for people who don't want to have a measured result or to compete. Voting socialist: Socialism is dictatorship that's been voted for. For the philosophy: It might be that in the upcoming election, the philosophies will be so starkly opposed to each other that people will vote for a certain candidate even if they don't like the individual.

Financial literacy: Polls have shown that currently, 67% of Americans have what is, effectively, financial literacy.

Why Socialism Can't Work in America – Episode 16
Some believe that a change to socialism would be for the greater good in America, but socialism actually isn't for the benefit of all. In this episode, Dan Sullivan and Mark Young explain why socialism can never happen in a voluntary state. Governs government: The Constitution doesn't govern the American people; the Constitution governs the American government. Three Ps: There are three "Ps" that actually create the economic world: the pricing mechanism of the marketplace, profit and loss, and personal property. Subject to theory: Socialism doesn't embrace measurement or accountability that isn't subject to theory. Not for all: It can be argued that socialism isn't for the benefit of all, but rather taking from some to give to others. Never voluntary: Socialism has to be imposed, and it has to be coerced, so it can never happen in a voluntary state. Immune to feedback: Some governmental structures have had problems in adjusting to the increase in the world's population because they’re immune to feedback. Creating scarcity: The system of socialism guarantees the creation of scarcity. Self-development required: Capitalism requires the maximum self-development of individuals.

Effective action: Capitalism is a way to produce more effective action out in the world.

The Benefits Of Individualism In America - Episode 15
While collectivism seems to be on the rise in the United States, it's part of the cyclical flow that's always been present. In this episode, Dan Sullivan, Mark Young, and guest Perry Marshall talk about the different ways of looking at what's happening with technology and the benefits of using your freedom of individualism. Two ideas: America has been described as a tension between two powerful ideas: equality and individualism. Equally unequal: In America, there's equal opportunity to make yourself as unequal as you like. Pendulum swings: Excessive individualism is unhealthy, and excessive collectivism is unhealthy, but it's inevitable that the pendulum swings back and forth from one to the other. Always cyclical: Society can never get to where it's trying to go in a straight line; there will always be a cyclical nature to it. Coming and going: Some people are afraid of the jobs that driverless cars and trucks will make obsolete, but they might not be thinking about the industries and activities that will come into existence as a result. Faster internet: An entire industry can pop up on the internet in the time it takes to design a new car to get into production. Negative freedom: If the expansion of your freedom diminishes someone else's freedom, then that's negative freedom. Not global: We all essentially lead local lives, and our communication capabilities don't make us any more global. Human intelligence: You can have all the computer power in the world, and you'll still have an intelligent human directing it. Easier prediction: It's easier to predict what's not going to change than it is to predict what the future will be like decades into the future.
