Hi Everyone,

I can recommend two movies Chica and I loved:

Captain fantastic - https://g.co/kgs/fbPi34

Hunt for the Wilderpeople - https://www.rottentomatoes.com/m/hunt_f ... derpeople/

Both of them pretty uplifting. Hope you enjoy them!

Money, happiness and eternal life - Greed (director's cut) | DW Documentary

"People like to have a lot of stuff because it makes them the feeling of living forever," says American social psychologist Sheldon Solomon, who believes today's materialism and consumerism will have disastrous consequences.

A related, casual discussion on CheapRVLiving's site with Randy Vining ... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UjTGF4jPdCY

I like how Vining talks about 'generating' meaning instead of finding it. Gives a person more control over the process.

Not sure if this has been mentioned before, but I recently found an interesting YouTube channel called "Wendover Productions". The videos touch on topics such as geography, economics, travel, and so forth.

Unconventional investment style that focuses on preservation of capital, etc. I got some Harry Browne-ish vibes, but clearly different. Some interesting intersections with ERE ideas of wealth/capital and "enduring over the long term"

What a great share BSOG. That guy is awesome. He’s clearly Austrian in his economic understanding, a systems thinker. A man of integrity. Lots of great nuggets and themes in there- the lies being told by the government and the media, the lack of fiduciary responsibility of financial professionals, the dubiousness and moral consequences of current monetary policy, the lack of accountability in society in general, the widespread loss of a long-term time preference. His tone when comparing his the lack of demand for his “rare approach” to the erosion of the arts is so casual. “It’s what the market wants.”

(Is society decaying because of what the market wants, or is the market irrational because society is decaying?)

I feel remotivated to finally read Taleb’s works.

EDIT: Found this. A full-blown Spenglerian. I love this guy!

“There is no argument in that we live in dismal times. The subprime crisis was merely the prelude of the financial chaos that has ensued. Yet, it is not the consequences of such financial crises that matter as much as the recognition that we are suffering from a deeply-rooted moral crisis.

The subject may be scholarly but its impact affects us all. I point you (again) to Guido Hülsmann’s The Ethics of Money Production as a primer on the genesis of our global ailment.

From a capital owner’s perspective, this moral crisis has considerable implications since its economic consequences arise from a larger framework of structural malaise. Four such characteristics are pertinent: fraud, illiteracy, lawlessness and poverty.”

@wolf, @black_son_of_gray interesting to hear him admitting to not knowing, or researching, Bitcoin (1h47m17s).

brute finally got around to this lengthy interview. the long form style is just great. more ideas should be given time.

the 35% in gold is very Austrian, as is the thinking about time preference and the structure of production.

If anyone is interested in DIY engineering, then the channel "Applied Science" on YouTube is for you. His depth and breadth of knowledge is insane, and he has a lot of money.

Shawn James, who does the My Self Reliance YouTube channel that revolves around building a cabin in the woods, also has a personal channel. On it, he touches on some ERE type stuff in his Path to Self Reliance playlist.

Dominion 2018

Dominion is a 4k Documentary that uses drones, hidden and handheld cameras to expose the dark underbelly of modern animal agriculture, questioning the morality and validity of humankind’s dominion over the animal kingdom. While mainly focusing on animals used for food, it also explores other ways animals are exploited and abused by humans, including clothing, entertainment and research.

Since a number of you enjoyed the above interview with Tony Deden, here is a transcript of his remarks at a recent conference:

http://edelweissjournal.com/pdfs/Edelwe ... al-019.pdf

Gives some insight into his history of thinking about value and the modern marketplace - some real zingers in there.

Considerably shorter than the video ;) Enjoy!
