"michael malice" Discussed on The Charlie Kirk Show

"One of the things that you really excel at is crafting a tweet that is perfectly targeted and service to go viral. So can you share with us your trick to writing the print Charlie Kirk tweet? Oh boy, you have to know the right emoji to use. Huh? Retweet if you agree. Oh no, hey, I was the pioneer of that. Early on. And no one's actually ever asked me about this. So I love Twitter. I used to love Twitter. It's an awful place now. I actually deleted it from my phone and I have somebody else running. But I got my first Twitter account in 2011, and I studied the platform. I studied it like a gamer would study halo or whatever the kids played nowadays, right? I studied what goes viral. All that correct, what are the kids playing nowadays? I don't know Pokémon. I don't know. I'm not a video game guy. I think it's a waste of time. But so I studied Twitter and I was like, what goes viral? So around like 12 and 13, I would really kind of get into this and I realized that Twitter was changing its algorithm and almost becomes kind of an extension of you where you kind of realized the pattern. And so I did this for a year after year after year, starting with no followers on verified. And during the top of the Trump years, you know, we ended up having the third most engaged Twitter account on the planet. I mean, I was averaging a 145,000 retweets a day at our heyday, which is a lot, right? Not to mention all the likes and favorites and all of that is just astronomical numbers. And so yes, the perfect way to craft a tweet. Say things that are true that get people's attention and don't be afraid to ask people to retweet. Yeah, okay. Why do you find that hard? Why do you think Twitter has, you just said it's kind of become a bit of a cesspool or whatever the term is awful. Why do you think has it gotten worse? They kick off people that I want to hear from. Donald Trump being one of them and they banned me and they banned James Lindsay. What do you mean what happened there? For a while and then we figured it out. It was all about it was about Levine. I get so many of these notices from them. It was about admiral Levine or whatever. His name is who thinks he's a woman or whatever. The whole thing's so messed up. So then, yeah, but not to mention, it's just tweets don't go as viral as I used to do because their shadow banning all of us, which has now been revealed in CDC documents that if you dared question the vaccine of which I do, they come after you and they shadow ban you. And so it's just not fun anymore either. Twitter used to be a legitimately fun place where I would send out one of those tweets and be like, oh, a New York Times reporter is going to tweet back at me. Like, yes, it's like the only way I could communicate with people I absolutely hate. And 'cause I don't have their phone numbers, right? And you could do it in front of millions of other people. Like, oh, yes, this degenerate from The Huffington Post decided to tweet at me. I must be doing something right. And it's just not that fun anymore. Now it's like, you're a Nazi, your scum, it's like, okay, whatever. And I think that Twitter is just decreased in its potency and its relevancy. And so, I don't know, I passively use Twitter now. I dedicate a lot more time to other platforms. You said earlier that you have become more conservative and less as you've gotten older in your old age, how have you become, can you give me a few examples or one even? Yeah, I mean, I'll give you one and you're probably going to totally disagree and that's fine is that I used to be super libertarian on weed, right? And like, oh yeah, I do whatever you want and I'm in the exact opposite now. I think I've seen it destroy people's lives like actually destroy people's lives. I've seen it create in remarkably violent tendencies. Now I'm not trying to judge if some of your audience does it, that's not my point. My point is, should we go out of our way to evangelistic legalize a substance when we already have substance abuse widespread? That's the question. I understand the alcohol contradiction argument, I can address that. But for example, I live in Scottsdale, they're building a marijuana dispensary 5 minutes from my home. I do not want the people that go to marijuana dispensaries at 1 a.m. near my home. I don't. And local government, I don't want you near me. Period. And so I've seen it in Denver. I've seen it in my home of Chicago. I've seen it in Vegas. I think it creates a sloppiness to the society. And by the way, I'll just be very honest. I hate the smell of it. And I also have seen it personally just completely and totally obliterate people's personal ambitions. And I think the stereotype that it is a gateway drug is kind of true. So that's just one way. A second one. Look at that though, because one of the issues that I think you and I would very much agree on is the problem with drug cartels, right? Oh, I totally agree, but it hasn't made him weaker. It's made him stronger since we've legalized. Is stronger than ever since we've legalized weed. So is in your opinion that marijuana was a national nation, excuse me. Nationwide made in something equivalent to what a substance a schedule or whatever. Drug that this would be hurt the cartels. Maybe, I mean, I think that, look, my view actually ends up being more moderate, which is it doesn't need to be overly enforced. I just don't think we should have dispensaries in every corner. Like I get it of some kid does dope. I suppose. But it is the culture of weed that comes in that just drives me crazy. But I guess just the counter the argument, the cartels were weaker when we used to actually enforce these laws. The cartels are stronger than ever. Period. The richer than ever, they have more arms than ever. They're more sophisticated than ever. And one of the promises that I used to believe in from a lot of libertarians is legalized weed and the cartels are going to be able to do whatever they want to do. They won't be able to do what they want to do. They get shut down. That's just not true. It's just isn't. It was a total lie. I could say I live in Arizona. The cartels are stronger than ever. Another thing that I've become less libertarian on is the legal issue of immigration. I used to be, yeah, okay, if you want to come here and work, I totally didn't quite understand the complications of assimilation and kind of cultural influences and all that. And I'll be honest just kind of more generally about libertarianism. And I don't mean this as an accusation or any of your listeners or all that. I think some parts of libertarianism are far too focused on abstractions, like way too focused on it. Like I've read all the books, okay? I read rothbard, I read mises, I read bastia, I read Friedman, I read Rand. I mean, I could quote a lot of it. I understand it deeply. And then I realized that a lot of it is just very idealistic built for academic arguments. It could be helpful in instructive at times, but it's not, I don't believe it's a governing principle or a way to live your life at all. I mean, you don't think this country was like the founding fathers were basically libertarian in their prison. No, of course not. No way. No, I mean, like, look, Thomas Jefferson was talking against sodomy laws in Virginia. In favor of sodomy laws in Virginia, it's not libertarian. They had state run religions. Like, that's not libertarian, the national government might have been libertarian. And I'm very clear, like I would love to live in a country where everyone like it was live and let live. And I think that's idealistically nice, but there's one gun on the table, right? And so there's three ways this ends up. We can all live in a free society where we all treat each other well, that's not going to happen, okay? Or they have the gun or we have the gun. It's that simple. I mean, there's a fourth option, which is this idea that's been bubbling up of national divorce. The concept being that the two obtained it, yes. Completely irreconcilable. And that even if there's any kind of victory in terms of some kind of conservative Republican landslide, it is the pendulum's only going to swing for a short period of time and eventually it's going to revert to the left and it's going to just be this kind of interminable war against one group of people versus another group of people, whereas if they were two guns, one group can do as they will, please. The other group because they will please and everyone will be happier ever after. We complain about the policies in Canada, but no one really cares to the extent that they care about the policies, the most in Chicago or New York..

Charlie's Young Followers are Red-Pilled and Anti-Fragile

"Is it that the kids are so have so red pilled and are so aware now as opposed to being much more naive, maybe a few decades ago. I mean, Aristotle had a great quote. I'm paraphrasing that pressure makes the man, which is there in these highly combustible environments early on where at 18 years old, they're asked by a professor who here's a Republican, they're like, oh yeah, me. And then they get singled out and they get bullied. They're like, wait, what? I mean, that does one of two things that either makes you weaker or makes you stronger. And for our kids at turning point USA, it makes our kids very strong. They lose Friends. They get bullied, they get socially isolated. So if you were to kind of, this is I totally agree with your enemy class kind of diagnosis, which is if you are going to try to create a group of people that was going to win in the future. Would you want the people that have had their teeth kicked in from when they're 18? And they have bruises and broken bones, the show for it, and they have the muscle to be able to get through it. Or do you want the people that retreat to the hills every time they hear something they don't like? Forget the numbers are side in the great words of nassim taleb. We're anti fragile. We get stronger the more they come after us. And so I think there's a lot of reasons for that, but regardless of their ideology, their attitude is what gives me hope.

Charlie Describes His Persuasive New Book 'The College Scam'

"Talk about your new book because I have made the case. When I went to bucknell and I was a business major because I understood and I was right that the most important thing you're going to get out of university is a credential. I had that business degree that that would be opening much more doors for me than if I was let's suppose interested in psychology. I could go to the school library, learn about psychology, read textbooks, so on and so forth on my own. But that credential is what's going to open the door for me. Your book, and again, I'm a lot older than you. Your book is saying that this is something that is falling away. And that college is increasingly a scam. Can you break down the premise? Because you didn't go to college and you're very excited. Well, thank you. And so yeah, the books called the college scam and people can find it at college scam dot com. So it's been about a decade of living this theme out, not going to college, as you mentioned. It's three years of work went into this book. A lot of research has 35 pages of footnotes at the end of the book because I knew we were going to come out of criticism because this is an industry that you can not touch. We want to talk about the untouchable industries. It's the war machine, the pharmaceutical industrial complex, the media regime, colleges. That's kind of like top four as far as the institutions that we must just obey no matter what. So I thought to myself, most Americans actually don't agree with my premise, which is that college is a scam. At least most upper middle class Americans. Yeah. So the best way to write the book is to write it as if I'm trying to persuade people. And so what is the most proven high stakes game of persuasion? The courtroom. You think about it, right? A prosecutor tried to convince 12 normal people that this guy needs to go spend time behind bars or this woman he spent time on Mars. So I write the book as if I'm a prosecutor. I believe I've developed these facts over a long period of time, and you are the jury. So I have a ten count indictment in the book, very factual every single one every single one's different. And to go one after the other after the other, ten counts, I believe college is guilty on all, if you will, college the industry. And as everything from how expensive they are, to how radically intolerant they are, to the ridiculous finances of these universities, how they literally lie to the federal government to get more money. And while you go further into debt, so I can go any way you want with that, but the book is not written like a traditional political book that people are peddling, and I'm not saying that I wrote the typical political book, right? A couple of years ago, mega doctrine. That was written a little bit for persuasion, but mostly for clarity for Trump supporters. I didn't quite understand all the ideas. This is not written for that. This is for persuasion. This

Alex Jones Did Get Some Things Right

"Let's talk about Alex. I did have him last week because when you were just talking about it being an op, which I think you've clearly made out the case why it's at least plausible or if not. This is the kind of thing where I feel 5 years ago, if a Charlie Kirk was saying, you know, these were kind of a planned op outside my event, you would be called a conspiracy theorist and read out of polite society. Even in conservative circles, why do you think that that tide has changed so much that you could say this in pretty much no conservatives you're going to question your accusation? Yeah, look, I think the facts have shown us the last couple of years. I mean, I think Alex is wildly entertaining, by the way. I disagree with him on a lot of stuff. His style, I think the sandy hook thing was super questionable if I ever talked to him. I'd love to ask him about it. But he's been right about a lot and we're not allowed to say that out loud, by the way, that Alex Jones was right about a lot. And whether it be a lot of this globalism stuff, the open border stuff, and he obviously has a very unique style. I guess you could say. But there is something to be said though that what once was deemed to be a conspiracy theory is now deemed to be a mainstream accepted fact. And whether it be Russian collusion, I mean, the one I use the most, right? And Alex to his credit was on this, let's just say, comically and as entertaining as possible, was the Epstein island thing. Yeah. And I remember very clearly bringing up Epstein island in a conversation in Palm Beach in 2014 and being told by people that's a conspiracy theory. When literally three streets away, three streets away was Jeffrey Epstein's home doing the exact thing that I heard a rumor about. And they're like, oh, that's a conspiracy theory. It's not true. Well, we now know it's true we just don't know to what extent it's true. We probably do, but there's some gaps to be filled in that there was an island that was probably intelligence operation where underage girls were flown on private jets with world leaders from many different continents and governments to probably accumulate blackmail. That's a very big deal.

The Two Things That Happened in the Post-Trump Years...

"Two things that happened in the last in the post Trump years, which I'm curious to hear your thoughts about, which is before Trump and still to some extent to this day, declaring someone to be a racist was enough to read them out of polite society. And frankly, that's not incorrect. If someone is advocating for things like slavery or segregation or like that, I think that's a nonstarter, I think the vast majority of Americans of both political parties. When Trump came in and they were calling him every name under the book, including literally Hitler figuratively Hitler. And the Antichrist that mechanism ceased to be effective, but they stopped using that tool. They continues that to excuse me. And now it's become a point where it's like, wow, wow, wait, wait. For conservatives, I think, how have we let you for years just accused us of advocating for genocide and just you know, you're in the biggest talk show host, you're on the Karen mothership the view, we're just going to sit here and just be like, we disagree. Disagreeing is like, you know, you could disagree about tax policy and so forth to accuse someone of advocating for an extermination of a race. I think it's a whole other thing. And you can also totally, sorry, go ahead. That was it. Your thoughts, please. No, I mean first of all, just how dumb do you have to be to just not hold on a second? I'm going to say something on air. Would a 5000 person event with desantis and Trump really let Nazis in? Like, come on, I mean, that's the dumbest thing I've ever heard. That's actually how they view the world, though. They're like, oh, they must have let them in. As if that there is not standards in the conservative movement between, I don't know, Nazis, like, hello. I mean, you think that that would even be remotely tolerated. But yes, I mean, I call this the weaponized name calling. They used to be able to get conservatives to go into a place of paralysis by just calling us racist bigot homophobic misogynistic xenophobic. And that just doesn't really work anymore at all. And now all of a sudden conservatives thinks the Trump and my personal opinion have more of a backbone and are willing to fight and are willing to punch back twice as hard.

Charlie Unpacks the Viral #SueTheView Nazi Story

"We get started talking about the book because things have changed a lot since I was in college. And nowadays, and for the better, in many ways. And for the worst of many other ways, you were trending last week on Twitter, hashtag Sue the view was trending, can you break down what they were accusing turning points USA of and why you chose to send a cease and desist letter? Yeah, it was one of the weirdest stories I've ever lived through to be honest with you. So we have our big turning point USA student action summit. We had 5000 conservative students from all across America. Attending. And someone came to me and said, hey Charlie, there's some Nazis outside. What are you talking about? There's Nazis outside this. Yeah, there's like, there's 5 or 6 people with masks on with swats to cause. And I said, well, get rid of them. I said, this is probably either a fed or a plant or something. There's no way this is real. It's like some sort of op. And we couldn't get rid of them there on public property. Some of our turning point USA students go out there and start debating and like shouting at them, like get away from here, we have nothing that we want nothing to do with this. It's disgusting. Like how dare you fly a swatch to code, which I completely agree with, by the way. It's just a reprehensible. And so then you completely agree with telling them to not fly it. Yeah, I mean, I agree with it. Go, sorry. I agreed with them saying get off the property, right? Obviously they have a constitutional right to be there. But if I'm renting out the convention center, I don't want a swatch to go outside of the convention center. I don't want to be associated with that. I think it's disgusting and reprehensible. And so yeah, anyway, so our security said we can't remove them public property. There are fully masked the whole thing, and then they leave. And so then the media wrote up a story and we condemned obviously what happened immediately and the media said, okay, there are these Nazi protesters outside, which again, I will reinforce, I believe, where Democrat operatives and I have plenty of reason to believe that happy to dive into it if that's interesting. But it's just the evidence is pointing in that direction. In fact, we're dedicating a lot of resources to actually prove it in a variety of different technological ways. But anyway, so we denounce it we condemn it, you know, there's a couple of media stories about it and then it dies down and then the view decides to go do a whole segment on our event where joy behar started to say, well, you know, while outside of the event, they had all this Nazi propaganda and all this and then Whoopi Goldberg says, yeah, and they let them into the event. And so that's slanderous, right? And it's so transparently slanderous because, I mean, it's well known how we reacted to it. You just have to look it up. We condemned it with a press release the whole thing. And so then she comes after the break because obviously legal gotten her ear and they said, Whoopi, you can't say that. And so then she says, very sloppily, well, what I mean is that they were metaphorically with you. They were amongst your midst, which again, it's a slanderous apology, right?

"I would love to sneak up. I mean, that's got question applies to you too, the question applies to me. When you start getting more fame or money or power, are you aware of how that changed you? And explore that. How has that changed you? In the privacy of your mind, Michael malice, like how did you change now that you've gotten more attention, let's say. You know, or even the success of the book. Take yourself back to you talk about the 20 the early 20s, the mid 20s person. How are you different from that person? Are you the same person or are you totally different? It's an interesting thought is Putin the same person in 2020 as he was in 2010 and then in 2000. It's a non trivial, almost like and the other thing was that she is the dynamic system like on the one hand he's going to want to say we got to write every time. But then how's that even possible when you're dealing with evolving unknown dynamic situation, when did you guys get it wrong? Did that result in lives lost? Do you feel guilty about that? I mean, the big problem with the masks, the changing mind and the mask is the arrogance and how it was communicated. To me a lot of this goes on to how things are communicated. It's like it's obvious that you need to change your mind when you get new information or sometimes yeah, you take policies that are like, we know the truth, but we're going to lie for a particular reason. You have good intentions. But if you're not able to communicate that later, we made a mistake. Or even ask him, can you understand how a rational person might choose not to get vaccinated? Yes, yes. Yes. And if you can't steal man that, then that's a situation. That's a good test. And some people succeed and some people fail. They really need to really steal man the other understand that somebody would be hesitant about taking the vaccine. Yeah. It's a giant mess man.

And I'd be like, exactly. And then go on to the next thing. But I thought, like, it was such a tense conversation that I thought that would be no question for levitating. The question I would ask him is can you acknowledge that there is an enormous incentive for your company to force everyone in America or everyone on earth to be a consumer of your product? Yeah. That's the question. So a dance around that question quite a lot. I'm a phrase it differently, which is a conflict of interest and attention between making a lot of money and actually helping people. I mean, I've asked a lot of really have questions in that and I still think a lot of people wrote to me with support saying that was a really great conversation and a lot of people wrote saying that saying that it was just too soft. And I don't know, I think about that a lot, like how do you have that conversation? I don't think it was too soft. And actually just for the record I want to say that they didn't see any other questions I'm asking. They didn't see the final interview. I can ask anything I want. And so any questions that I asked.

"Of freedom that it at its highest ideal is expressed through the resistance to the powerful, as opposed to existing in its own? I think his point broadly speaking, which I agree with is the only thing that can work to mitigate power is other power. That. Talk is cheap. And persuasion has very limited efficacy. It's like if there's a burglar, and one person will give you a speech about property rights, and you shouldn't be in this person's house. And the other person has a gun. It's clear, which is going to be more persuasive. Yeah, but can you just be free without the struggle without this conflict? What I'm uncomfortable with this view is how closely it links freedom and conflict. Like, why does this world have to have conflict for you to be free? I mean it's in part of it is just emphasis. Well, you were just saying suffering is what leads to joy. See, and now you're in agreement. Thank you. I just did that just so you can come around and agree. I went next topic. Well, I'm playing 3D chess here. Okay. This is new year's. This is not December 31st. I think that's how it works, but in 1973. Okay. We recorded this before you were born. Oh, no. Years after you're born in 60 you look great for 60 early 60s or okay. What 5 things, let's say, are moments in 2021? Are you grateful for? Or people just, I don't know things, moments, beautiful, experiences. Profound essences of the year, like looking back, what are the cool things that just personally are socially? Do you exist in a platonic way socially? I mean, oh, in your personal life. Anything. You're both, you're now Michael malice.

"That is something that is really a knock against the society in some. That should not be taken lightly. Khumbu had this great ethical reflection the guillotine. Which i think i would encourage people to read so this is a this is a very complicated issue. One the knox against anarchism is that utopia right and i would argue. And i'm sure you would agree when you have criminals and were accused. Criminals You you know you don't wanna put away innocent people and you do want to make sure you get the ones who should be removed from society. So how you get. There is not going to be easily answered under any system. Yes i agree. And i also speaking of this non utopian stuff the most important thing right. Now you know This word praxis comes up in a lot of anarchist or communist discourse. The practice is very important because we actually have to do stuff. And so i i you know. I know that there are some conservatives and buckley to to a degree certainly indulged in this who punch right a of the time. And i just think it is madness right now for people who in any way consider themselves on the right whether the traditionalist religious right libertarian anarchists. Whatever is you want to add. There is now a consolidation of power at the level of the ruling class and liberal establishment. That is about to prevent us from using pay pal. It's about to prevent us from using. I mean it actually pay pal made this announcement today. they're teaming up ad l. I mean this is really terrifying stuff. And so i agree we need to boot utopianism and figure out a way to push back against it and michael. You offering a white pill. And i'm going to say one more thing. If i if anyone listening to me listen might vice focus on government schools because government schools are literal prisons for children and the only place many people experience violence in their lifetimes. And now that's won the silver linings of these lockdowns that increasing numbers of people regardless of the ideology realized. Just how depraved and dangerous. These schools are and are taking their kids out so if conservatives are skeptical of the government as they say do not hang your children over to these people to raise them for you and be surprised when they come out despising you and everything you stand for. Yeah i mean and you even see the extension of school. It went from first through twelfth and they added kindergarten and preschool. Then now's subsidized college They're going to eventually have your kids for like twenty years straight. I kid you not a relative of mine sent a kid to preschool at like two and a half. That preschool is an shaded. Obviously shapes your child's mind educates them right at develops who they are and a very important not to give Give the state that power to give the ruling that power. Michael you are seriously. I say this sincerely one of the most intelligent people out there in the right wing media today. You haven't convinced me on anarchism yet but we'll have to save that for next time. Perhaps and thank you for being so interesting. Yeah wait a second hold on here.

"Up everybody. Welcome to a brand new episode of part of the problem. I am always psyched to do these crossover episodes and we've got another one for you. The man the myth the legend michael malice Host of your welcome author of many books most recently the anarchist handbook which is still just absolutely crushing it. Of course he also wrote dear reader and the new right and is working on another book coming out sometime next year. We hope Hope this year. We're hoping for this year very good. It's very tough though. I was hoping for next year. I don't wanna yet. I was hoping you do a few more drafts on it. Wait till next year. How are you brother. I it's mixed because it's a lot of the research is very very intense. I'm reading about the berlin wall and at the stasi did the people east germany and you. So you're hearing these stories about people being tortured and whatever and the next day you hearing these stories of heroism were people were like. Yeah on a figure out a way to beat these jack offs at their own game. So it's it's really really really intense and it gets to you because a it's not that far away or long ago like this is like the s were there like raping children and things and in in like a little concentration camps in east germany that they set up but it's also the fact that if i did know about this stuff then i can be pretty sure virtually. No one in america knows about this stuff because his kind of my beat soda to be the one who's going to be telling the story of these year heroes. Just absolute villains is also very Intents sherm absolutely i remember Jordan peterson on On rogan's podcast years ago talking about The idea of heaven and hell as something that really stuck with me and he said that He was like you know they were kind of on the conversation of whether that's real or not and he was like well. We don't really need to look that far to find hell. Cal is real and there are real people living in hell right here in this world and it talks about you know like the jews in nazi concentration camps and people in the gulags and stuff like that where you're like yeah those people are living through hell and the fact is that there are people all around the world who are living in hell right now and some you know and many here in our countries even just in the sense of blake just being miserable relationships you know children who have abuse parents and things like that like your life is just hell and there's something incredibly depressing about you know being confronted with that for those of us who are not in hell we may have our problems but it's very easy to be removed from that that other real human beings lived or are living in situations like that. Yeah i mentioned the story when i was on alexa treatments podcast. Last week i did the trigonometry podcast and when the host told me about how back in the soviet union there were prison guards obviously gulags and then when khruschev came into power after stalin. I believe in fifty three. And he's like yeah. A lot of this stuff was really messed up and khruschev liberalized that some of these guards kill themselves because they are genuine. Believed that these people he's camps should have been there and they learned that they'd been doing this innocent people. They couldn't handle that guilt. So it the the lay the thing it's like. It's not just a friendly with north korea. It's not just have to go to these dopey schools and like have this guy's picture on the wall and where the lapel pin who care. I mean that's the worst of it. Okay who cares but it's the the layers of depravity and you just think about like your some kid and you're like oh. I'm going to join the party not got status. You know now you know. I've got a girlfriend people. Tell me. I'm a hero. My family's proud of me. I can feed them and then the next thing you know. You're like in siberia watching like kids starve and you're like wait. What if you could see like. I didn't sign up for this but you kinda did but you're dumb kid saving with the war machine here. You know it's like you. You think i'm going to sign up. This is going to be great. And then you're like what what what i'm watching my buddies die for. What it yeah. It's really it's really. I mean this is the state at its worst. Obviously yeah yeah absolutely no. I've talked to a lot of combat vets On and off the podcast. And it's a it's really something where they'll be these kids who grow up in like shit towns and they're not great in school you know like they're maybe like see students or something like that and you're like so. What is the option here. It's like i know everyone else you know is like going to get a job at arby's or something like there's really no and then comes in the federal government and they go will here. You can do something. Incredibly noble defend your country. Defend the bill of rights. We're gonna get you in college. We're gonna get you on your on your way to having like a better life and you get to have this bad ass identity. And it's like well. I mean shore in with those options. That sounds really good. And next thing you know like few weeks of training of the one deployment and you are now firing at villagers thousands of miles across the globe. It's really it's it's something so it's it. Yeah i what else. Can i say the kind of thing where like words don't do it justice you're talking about like you know kids being driven to suicide. It's it's what are you supposed to say about it. So but that's my job. I have to figure out how to talk about this in. It's it's not fun. I assure you. Will i imagine with them. Writing the north korea book there was a lot of confronting that type of stuff as well. It wasn't as bad because a lot of it was north korean propaganda. So it's like this is all great and the rug. So i kinda you know that but also it hits. This hits a lot closer to home from the former soviet union so for to be like. Yeah my family solve this and lived through that and like i hear a lot of responses now social media when i talk about on lex when people are like. Yeah like my grandfather. Mother did this by grandfather did this. And they would never talk about it until like they were like ninety Because they didn't want us to know what they went through. And it's it's it just you could also imagine like this old person with their grandkids complaining. That like was to them at school. Like you understand what it's like and eat them just smiling and nodding and you want this little simpleton to just keep you know like yeah you know it. It's so that. But that's the other reason i'm so optimistic. Like as bad as things are now and as evil as these people are. Now i i. It's not even an same galaxy as what happened in the thirties and forties like i. It's not even close. Yeah and the other thing is because of technology like it's a lot easier to get away with this crap would not. Everyone has a smartphone. And you don't have access to the direct data and video. I mean if you had Cell phones with cameras during slavery. The a lot of people would be good. They approve. its they're awash but there's lots of people young people women who've they had to see footage of people getting whipped and beaten and crying on pain even if they're racist and think this is not you know someone who's your equal. It's really hard to look at that and be like this is fine. I it'd be a big percentage of population. Like whoa whoa. Whoa whoa this. We we can this. This has to stop immediately. So that's another reason. I'm on a hopeful.

"Percent and joe has to pay forty five percent. Joe and lex are in no position to be like this prices too high. That not only is that money Set just completely out of their hands. It's not for people who are employs. It's taken out of their paychecks before they even see. It didn't even have the choice to be like. You know what. I agree that the government has the right to pay taxation. Here's my check for forty percent. it's going on. it's completely different a paradigm than you are when you're putting this. The government provides a lot of services in the current system. But there's no service. The government provides that cannot be that would not be provided better more efficiently and with more choices in a market. What does a hypothesis. That very likely. No that's not the second demonstrators to you very easily. I love when got flustered. this is this. Is this people like it's so cute. The robot put on the head but the fire the smoke coming out of his ears. What is price okay. So we'll tax. Love the people like i i think of The government is kinda subscription service. Known that's the honest view. The anarchist view of a private security would be a subscription service. So yeah that's exactly correct but everyone hates when You you sign up to a gym and then you realize in the contract is very difficult to cancel that Membership and then. They upped the price. I mean that's there's lot of unpleasant things with with with a subscription service that then you can elect to go to another subscription service. Your or you could go on yelp and complain. And if there's enough people do that the gym will be receptive. Look at the power of yelp. Where's the power vote while this we could talk about that too. So you're saying yelp is more effective than a voting. Yes the thing. Is i agree with you but you go take us further step you say that yelp is ethical and moral and voting's immoral or like not voting but government is their moral. So it's not only is one more efficient than the other. You're saying like. Because i would say government sucks at doing what it does. And he's gotten a lot better at it and i believe it can get keep getting better As it gets smaller leverage companies more and more. But you're saying no. No government is fundamentally as an idea gets in the way of companies. That should be doing those things. Anyway i i just think that companies when you take government will start looking like government a they ask us something. Looks like something's not. It's the same if someone puts out a yarmulke to fill in and they go to schule. They're not jewish right the the basic objection of government. Because you can leave like i. I i apologize that this is stupid twitter. Cliche statement at church but your opposition to this idea of leaving the united states is that it's just it's a lot of effort is it's it's too much. I shopped the option. And i in the introduction to the book. I say anarchism can be summed up in one sense. You do not speak for me. Everything is application so the claim that somebody. I've never met or who. I voted against. Let's say i hate donald trump. I despise him. You know..

"And i think that's informative because it turns it from an ethical or moral conversation into an engineering conversation so it's like okay. Let's accept the premise. That the anarchist relationship is ideal ideal to have anarchist relationships between each other. Which is fundamentally that. Each person respects the role of that other person in that interaction. They have respect for it which is largely going to be a network of incentives because human beings respond to incentives. human beings. Aren't we aren't rational. Creatures that are blank slate. Enter the world and we begin printing ourselves upon the world before even conscious of ourselves. We've been imprinted upon by our culture. So then it's informative to determine where did that culture come from. How did we get to where we are. And so this is where the machiavelli is really got me with the especially the paredo principle in the concept of circulation the elites which for those who don't know every society will have a group of elite you will never achieve absolutely gala -tarian ism which is the fundamental left-wing vision. There will always be a hair hierarchy with a network of elites at the top so if ninety nine percent of human actions are anarchist. That's great but that may even be the the natural state and it's the one percent that matter because that one percent of interactions are going to be governed by those who have the most name of the show wealth power and influence yes because of the nature of human interactions. Those people will always rise to the top and so governments. Don't just appear out of the ether. Governments are created and imposed and enforced by those with wealth power and influence and you. You're the one who actually introduced me to the h. l. makin quote that the average person does not want freedom. They want to be safe. And so ninety. Nine percent of people then will gladly. Libertarians are out trying to sell them. Freedom they're trying to sell them liberty and it's this is a plane matter of you don't have the right market for your product. People don't want it. They actively do not want freedom because freedom entails responsibility and they don't want responsibility they responsibility so they will see their freedom and which is synonymous with seating their responsibility to someone else in return for their protection so governments like this will will naturally emerge out of that way. And i don't mean a state because now it's like okay well. A government is inevitable. There's going to be a government. The question is what form will that government take and ultimately that will be determined by those who have the most wealth power and influence because we have to deal with the world that we have now so if we want to change the political system. The only way you can do that as if you have the wealth and the influence to do that because of the wealth of the influenced by the power to change it so This has got me questioning the whole nature of individualism. That human beings really ultimately into functioning collectives like they say there's only three types of government there is a monarchy democracy and oligarchy. And really. there's just two. There's just monarchy oligarchy because democracy always manifest itself oligarchy. So this has been a whole bunch of points leading up to the kind of a broad question which is given the nature of all of these things if even achieving ninety nine percent anarchist relationships between one another. How do you grapple with that remaining one percent apart from build. Fuck you money and what do you think of this notion that i understand. How paradoxical sounds what do you think of this notion that ultimately anarchy must be enforced. Because as i like to say the difference between monarchy and anarchy as a single bullet. It's not because when you kill the king you're not killing the kingship. You're killing whoever happens to be the king at the moment. Like oh i open the book with a quote from the unsal ause who was the one who assess eight mckinley and you can make the argument all you want. The mckinley was this evil corrupt warmonger. But the result of this teddy roosevelt. I don't think anyone's going to argue. Is someone saugus. Found preferable or would have been preferable terms of liberty and as a consequence of this assassination. You have things like mass. Deportations of radicals under woodrow wilson. So i agree with you. That any i would i would. I don't like that terminology because it kind of feeds to the framing of anarchism. I don't agree with. But i agree with you completely that it i am not somewhat this to. There's two models for how to effect political change right. One is persuade a lot of people or make it impossible for them to do anything about it. I am one hundred percent in the second basket. I don't think there's any if my freedom or my life is predicated on convincing. Tens of millions of people i'm sol. At the very least. I'm not gonna have the time to do it like even if i'm you know jesus they're still not going to listen to me. There's going to be so many other voices. it's not on the table. What needs to happen in my view is to make the costs both psychological and economic Impossible for states and my neighbors to impose their vision and let me give an example. How that works now It's very possible that all of my neighbors think the music. I listened to his absolute garbage right and they're probably true. I really have bad taste in music. They're not doing anything about it. It never enters their head. They don't hear it whether whether they care so they've been taught though since they were kids that it is appropriate for them to decide what i do with my money. And it's a very weird paradox. like away. I can listen to whatever music i want as long peaceful and not infringing on your space but if i'm buying x. y. And z all of a sudden. You have a say that gotta help now at a. And we saw an example of this. In prohibition where a lot of people thought okay. This is something that shouldn't happen. The arguments for prohibition are good ones Alcoholism does lead to spousal abuse. It leads to fathers being absent elites the kids being traumatized for life leads to death in terms of not only the alcoholic but drunk driving violence people get into fistfights date rape.

"michael malice" Discussed on The Jason Stapleton Program

"Rather in maximizing the empowerment of the individual. If you feel the same waving get money's jason stapleton welcome to wealth power and influence tossup everybody. Welcome back willpower. Power and influence today. We'll take a bit of a deviation we're gonna talk a little bit about anarchy and i'm i'm interested. Well let me just put it to you. This way i have with me today. Author tech internet provocateur. And pretty decent guy all the way around once you get to know him. You love him or hate him. Michael malices here. Thank you my friend for being here to talk about his new book anarchy. The anarchist handbook not to be confused with the anarchists cookbook. Or maybe it is. I don't know but welcome brother. How're you leave the jokes to me staple okay. Well let's see. Let me let me be serious with you for a minute When when i was first approached with you coming on to talk about this book i had no interest at all. And i'm just like i want to talk about an ideology that has no no opportunity to ever come to fruition. I don't like. I don't like this sort of philosophical debate about stuff. That doesn't matter at least in the in the way i was thinking about it. But when she when amy sin over the stuff about your book outlining it and i admit to everybody i haven't had a chance to read it yet. But she you say the following. You say anarchists anarchism has been both a vision of peace. A peaceful cooperative society an ideology for revolutionary terror Since the term itself anarchism is a negation. There's a great deal of disagreement on what the positive alternatives would look like and you take inside the book. If i understand correctly a lot of different points of view on what anarchism is and how it might be applied to our lives. I think one of the things that really intrigue me as i started to think through this and how we might do a show together is. I think that we're going to have to. We're going to see a different sort of economy. Different way of sort of living together and interacting together as automation and artificial intelligence. Continue to become a bigger part of our lives. And we start to see a lot of jobs replaced. And i've always said that. I don't know if capitalism and the the type of government we have now is the best one i just think that capitalism in particular is the best. One that we've ever been able to come up with. And that may not sustain itself in the decades and centuries to come and so i can you start out talking a little bit about what your kind of the way. You view anarchism. Because i think a lot of people think of it as people in black hoods and masks who are throwing rocks and multi cocktails at the at the world health organization and. I don't think that's what you're talking about That's part of what i'm talking about. But what. I thought that would be much more germane with your show and your listeners are interested in is. I'm you probably wear this jason. Because you're not heavily on twitter like the rest of us losers The book which i did myself was the number one top nonfiction book and all of amazon for a full day. So this is speaks to what you're talking about having creative independence having financial dependence creating spaces in our culture where you're not contingent on asking other people for permission or approval in order to pursue your goals and values and to make them successful. Now that is to me and my understanding is to you the basis and the whole point of wealth power influence that you can kind of structure your life as you see fit and by doing so in a mechanism that's providing value to other human beings. So sure we can discuss the pros and cons of anarchism. You know all day long and assured obviously your audience would be very interested in that. But i think specifically the angle that you take is this is kind of unprecedented that i with this book and strickly through word of mouth demonstrating. The power of the internet was being able to meet such minor. Figures as oprah winfrey iraq obama which some people may have heard of so to answer your more specific question. One of the things. I discussed in the i. I don't agree with you at all. That anarchism is this. That will never come to fruition. Because anarchism is a is a relationship it is not a location. So you and i are an abacus relationship and When i go into ebay. Or i go into macy's and there is a dispute. It is resolved privately and peacefully. I know party has a pretense that they are in a position to Have authority over the other person. Now you could say sure you can call the police. But that's not accurate macy's has security and the police aren't getting called. If you know. There's i bought a sweater and there was a stain and i want to return it. Those results would be resolved very quickly. And even if they're not resolved in my favor they're still going to resolve in such a quick manner that i invite off macy's or they can see store but having access to the legal system in this scenario is so inefficient and expensive that anyone listening to it were regarded as an absurdity so anarchism is not only a not a pipedream the norm of inter human relationships. So you're not really talking about. And i i would. I would challenge. I don't know whether this is true or not. But i think part of the reason why the relationship between me and macy's when i buy a sweater and it's defective and i bring it back and return it. Why it works is in part because if macy's screwed over their customers and produced really terrible products that people would stop going there But i think another reason is one of the reasons macy's does it is because they know that they they face large criminal liability if they if they are defrauding people and selling them something that is a that just doesn't live up to whatever the whatever the claim is. I think that there is a that is a driving factor in behavior is is is the threat of the threat of force. It comes behind we would you. Would you would disagree with that. I don't see how fraud would enter into a person trying to swell sell sweaters. I i mean let's let's use pacific mason's example. At what point would this be a fraud issue. Why did you..

"michael malice" Discussed on What Bitcoin Did

"It's going to be inevitably going to get things wrong at some point right however once that mistake has pointed out to me. If i had any semblance of commitment to the truth or two decency i would not only feel humiliated. I would also make it a point to not make that mistake again. Even interpersonal relationships. If i misjudged one because of a lack of knowledge someone's like oh. He acted this way. Not because of you because you know something happened to his wife. You feel like a jerk and you're like oh my god. I gotta make amends and you know there's none of that when it comes to corporate media is is. Bitcoin is perfect. Example this I'm sure we're days away. They haven't already. You're more familiar with the space than i am but Bitcoin being white supremacist. Sure just the headline waiting to be written. Which is nonsensical. Of course if ben with knows it's a form of currency in many other things but this is how they operate And once you see their mcenery wins. You can't not see them and that's the red pill. Yeah that's the thing. I feel like at the moment taking the red pill and it's slowly slowly kind of weapons way my body. Yeah but i've really struggled to shed some of these things. I just held the true for a long time. The bbc for me was an institution of something. I could trust John simpson for me was agendas light. Believed i still travel the world interview. Some must wanted people. And i've traveled to the us. And i've seen how people view the bbc seen a different lens will never reporting and now it. Just don't trust anything good The bbc's very mixed a obviously it's a state organization. So you're gonna have trouble there however they're very good some of the reporters at being Asking the tough questions of people on all sides so you have credit for their Their three part documentary on thatcher. The dow next years is the best resource on her. A i think out there which is amazing given the notoriously hostile relation to of had so they end ally nature. Stuff is second to none so the bbc you can say very high things about but at the same time their agenda is very hard left It's very portrayed in a thing and that's that's fine. But first of all i think it's it's a obscene to use taxpayer money to fund a news organization. But it's also interesting that a agency that has stayed backing is going to be More respectable in many cases than corporate agencies here in the states like new york times washington post. I think the bbc jets right or get More reasonable in terms of displaying all sides of the issue Than you'd see here across the pond. Why think that's because it is funded by the tv license in the uk does a state tax ford it. It hasn't said about pressure on it to be as impartial as possible. Which i think you've recognized. Did you see the full documents. They made about the iraq war. I have not that tastic is pretty the best reporting on that but yes. Oh i'm in this place. Unlike shedding these skins and and some people have gone far enough regularly still khuda status And i think what it is is well. That's not going to answer. That's not going to change. No no. I'm not real anarchists. Because i don't talk about bitcoin enough so we'll get. Yeah whatever. anyone has some perspective. There's a slur that they'll use to people that don't fall unlock completely so i think state is. We got a ways to go before status in this case. Yeah and i think what it is is. One of the reason was hoped he was. I can't see the end goal. I can't see like. I see the state see issues with the state of hip talk about it. Quite a bit and People by can't see the end goal. I can't see the alternative. I can't see how it actually works and alternative turn right here whilst the conversation right. This is we're here. We are in an anarchist relation. One another neither has an authority. You have some semblance of authority because this is your show but we met peaceably anarchism as a relationship. It's on location. So anytime you have people exchanging peacefully that is an anarchist situation. Despite states claim that but for the state this would be impossible which is claiming. if there wasn't the exorcist. we'd all be possessed. It's a it's a dubious but but this is manageable as neighbors will maybe even a street. It's manageable what. I what i struggle with is the idea of. How does this work. Scale with fringing sixty million people round. Does that works in. Come to that and some the questions are already do i had. I started reading the yet radio bucket. You will must play those responses back out. As the you know the questions you've been also shared alison times and i'm gonna. I'm gonna mess. I saw these. But let's start with the state fussy. What do you think the state does. What the state does well in terms of Fomenting emotion among the population. The state does well in terms. That's one thing. I you're you're asking anarchists To think things state does well The state isn't even good at waging war. I mean in if it be very easy to make the argument for government if it was good at war right if the iraq war was were in and out in a week saddam's gone minimal or no civilian casualties. We could pat ourselves on the back. You can make that argument. That's has not. Have you know so even things that are regarded as the state at its most the laureus like world war two you. That's a very good versus evil situational because we've stalin at the rug because we don't know how to fit him into the good for steve situation even there the mount of death and destruction is just unconscionable not just me. The holocaust means civilians and soldiers being killed from every direction. So i can't think of anything. The state does well. Because it's just like us even take the out rela politics What is it that like. Gigantic bureaucracies dwell. While they're good at organizing they're good at making someone have a job for their life taking care of their own kind of constituents or employees would have you might have but i think when people stop thinking the state of something that's representational as start thinking that it's a giant violet bureaucracy and ask yourself what are things. That giant bureaucracies dwell. They're gonna also struggle to have the same answers. The answer they come up with. This is that. I come up with managing borders and text text collection. But they don't manage short as well. Tax evasion is a voisin are both the status quo so i i don't think if they they they collected taxes well we have black markets. Yeah what i what. I don't understand without mckesson. tell me. I don't know if it's you. If it's an ongoing idea up an objective you reach or puzzle philosophical way of living both I which i hate when people answer the question that way. I notice whenever you have a world view. It's you know it's kind of living the values so for me anarchism is engaging with people peaceably is enforcing strictly your borders and your boundaries. It is feeling Outrage when you know innocent people are harmed especially on mass which is what the state is very good at nas carnage and destruction so.

The Difference Between Classical Liberals and Libertarians

"What do you feel are the differences between classical liberals and libertarians. I get this question. Probably more than it's like top three when i do live. Event only did one life event last year but i will announce something a woman in essence. I would always say the simple version of this because usually when most people listening. If you're not familiar with all the terms you go libertarian. He believes in individual rights. He wants lower taxes government. Out of the way i would say the true libertarians. What i love going libertarian events. I love talking to libertarians and it always gets whittled down to. Should we have driver's licenses. Should we legalize math. And a whole bunch of other stuff and there's great intellectual exercise there and by the way you can take the libertarian thing. Really down that far road and ended up as an an cap. And you know michael malice. Why call the willy. Wonka politics is one of my favorite guests. A good buddy of mine. And i love having that philosophical debate. I think classical liberalism gives just enough like the lightest touch of government possible to allow the markets to work to allow people to be free to allow states to have rights to allow all of us to be treated equally all of those things. So you know one of the things that used to say. I used to say and this one's starting to change. Which is that the. The state has a role in public education. I went to public schools. My entire life including college and i got a good a pretty good education. I'd like to think but now if you're going to be infected by the ideas of critical race theory and everything else then should the state of any right in that and by the way that the state delivered hearings basically want that they want as much school choice as possible. you know. there's this new idea. And i had corey danjus and a couple of other people on my show on the panel on friday where we talked about this. The idea of funding students not systems. Because obviously we know that the teachers unions are too powerful. So the idea is you would give x amount to the student. And then they could figure out what school they wanna go to. We could do more charter schools and everything else
