For some enlightenment philosophers (namely, Hume, Locke, and Smith) conformity to ‘Reason” included prioritizing the discovery and observance of widely shared implicit behavioral rules. The justification for giving such rules primacy over those which could be derived from alternative sources – e.g. the creative intellect2 – though not often stated (conceivably owing to its then-axiomatic status3) […]
Hello folks, Above is a piece which I recently completed. It is one of Chopin’s legendary Etudes. Enjoy!
I started the Robinson curriculum roughly five years ago, at the age of 11 years old. Transitioning to it from the Ron Paul curriculum was certainly turbulent. This was mostly because the content of Robinson curriculum (1.) was to be entirely self-taught, something that I had initially suspected would be more than I could manage. […]

Belief in such a point of reference supplies him with the confidence necessary to execute judgement and make decisions in the world. This appears to explain, at least partly, why […]
The following pages constitute an excerpt taken from Dr. Jordan Peterson’s latest book Beyond Order. It primarily focuses on the problem of ideology and the obstacle it forms in the development of one’s potential.
Here is an interesting video that I found. I’m not sure what to make of it as a whole, however, some of the points made caught my attention as they were rather unsettling. It’s clear that the individual being interviewed, Yuri Bezmenov (a KGB defector), had come to abhor what he repeatedly labels “Marxist-Leninist” ideology. […]
