Trust no one… but yourself.
The idea of “I trust you” means you forgo thinking for yourself. That’s never a good idea.
Humans are fallible. Biased. Perceptually flawed and always suspect to external influence.
Simply put, humans are more wrong than they are right. And if they happen to be right it's because they did work to find Truth. The understanding that comes from that proof of work (money, time, experience, trial/error, etc.) is essential to holding Truth in one's mind. You can't shortchange it.
If you forgo proof of work, what you think you know will make you fragile and more likely to make mistakes of ego.
The only answer is independent critical thought and knowledge acquisition.
You can read a biography of Steve Jobs but that doesn’t mean you can start the next Apple. Or worse, you might become the next Elizabeth Holmes because you hero-worshiped Steve Jobs without doing the work to become Steve Jobs.
When you look at the disaster that has been the last 2 years at the hands of for-profit entities and the State, you have a billion reasons why you must find Truth for yourself.
📰 News and Stuff 🚨
When you give Truth to the masses, they act like this. And that’s why they always come around later only when it’s socially “acceptable” to do so. #groupthink #humannature
👇 This is the beauty of the human spirit and the perfect metaphor for how disgusting it is to let the State and crony interests dictate how we live.

Thinking and living for oneself

When you understand evolutionary biology, everything makes sense. EVERYTHING.

🚨 ONLY A FEW LEFT → Red Light 40% off Special Offer for READERS ONLY (more on way if sold out)
I love red lights so much that I decided to source them myself. I found a model similar in power and style to a model I bought from one of the big red light brands for a fraction of the cost. The one in my office below was $599 + shipping.
When I found a similar, almost exact model, for a fraction of that, I knew I overpaid.
So I sourced them myself. Our first model is below.
To get going, I’m offering a 40% off coupon to newsletter subscribers. I have limited inventory on these, so I apologize if they sell out.
How to use red lights? Turn em on while you work. Put them in your sauna. They are great for waking up each morning. The benefits are many, so do some research if you’re new to red light therapy. I use mine every day.
Claim the offer here and use code 40Q9TQE2 at checkout for 40% off. 👇
