I would love to see Stef have a discussion with Lawrence Krauss, who is a really smart guy but committed leftist,  about morality, their definitions, overviews, and in particular the morality of the State.

 

Or perhaps on philosophy as a whole. What they both think it is, etc. Because Krauss thinks it's completely useless.

I would like to see an interview with the makers of the Index of Economic Freedom.

What do they think about where the world economy is going? Do they think "the west" is on a downward trend with regards to freedom and economy?

Do they see the possibility of larger economic problems like a depression for North America and Europe in the future?

1. Positive Rights vs. Negative Rights - a possibly good debate, since it is essentially what divides libertarians from liberals and conservatives.

2. History of classical liberalism and its branching off into modern liberalism and libertarianism (if that is even accurate).

3. Animal rights?....maybe?

It would be very helpful personally if you guys would do a show about "Starting and Running a Successful Business."  Many of the insights that Stefan has provided in previous Call-In Shows and the episode about Business Management have been enlightening.  I heard him say that he was going to do a show about "The Perils of Starting a Business" but I wasn't able to find said show.  

 

I can't thank you guys enough for everything you do!

I would like Stef to interview Dr Nadine Burke-Harris from the Center for Youth Wellness in San Francisco, who is probably the most dedicated advocate for dissiminating information about the effects of ACEs.

Dr. Burke Harris’ powerful TEDMED 2014 talk on the often-overlooked connection between childhood trauma and lifelong health.

The Truth About Sigmund Freud

 

I'd like to know more about how he chickened out as Stef puts it, when it came to having to gaslight rape and abuse victims to keep his job--when he was making serious headway but receiving too much flack from abusers. And of course his history and contributions to psychology and therapy.

There are a lot of good ideas here and I don't have the time to go through all 400 posts right now LOL, or all 4,972,261,337 podcasts and videos... (FDR: Where quantity IS quality)

 

I'm seeing a lot of misinformation and misdirection concerning bullying. All the blame throwing I see is going toward the children, and barely any focus on the parents, teachers, close family, society, etc. I know Stef has covered bullying before and it was a very good coverage of the subject, but I think the subject might need a revival in light of recent events. I'd love to elaborate more if you're looking for ideas on what to cover. Just send me a message and I'll get back ASAP if you want.

Thank you for your consideration.

He talks about it in his prostitution series (533-535), but don't know if there's anything else he leaves out you want to know. You might find out more if you search "gender" and "dating" in fdrpodcasts.com

I read Faye Snyder's book "The Manual" and she wrote briefly on reasons Freud changed his theory. "Freud Struggles with Theory" section starting on page 17(-20), but I also recommend reading the whole first chapter that the section is contained within [at least pages 1-44 (incredibly the entire first chapter of the book is available online)] if you have time, it talks about the progression of psychological theories.

 

Link Google books

If link doesn't work Search "The Manual Google books faye snyder" in google

I would enjoy a video about those who use powerplays in conversations - those who don't really want to converse but really just want to make others feel weak. I love the Troll Spotting podcast - I'm listening to it now and it got me excited for the possibility of a whole video on just powerplays. I used to fall victim to it all the time, my brother and father would start conversations with me about free markets and libertarianism and I always felt like they were trying to trap me until I realized that is seriously exactly what they were doing. Maybe this request is premature as I haven't even finished the first Troll Spoitting or even started the 2nd, but I love the bit about powerplays and how some people try to make you an idea salesman just to be like "Ha, you can't convinve me!" I think those sort of conversations could be expanded into another video, facebook comment threads certainly come to mind as an example of it - a lot of people waste time on such social media discussions with people who just want to deny a sale, so it could be beneficial to try to convince people to stop participating in such bullshit powerplays and focus instead on real discussions. (something I'm learning from even now) Thank you for reading!

This quote from a former soldier on Reddit has been getting quite a lot of attention lately: "You grew up wanting so bad to be Luke Skywalker, but you realize that you were basically a Stormtrooper" (link to story here).

 

I remember Stef has mentioning about the mythology of the "Hero's Journey" (aka monomyth) as it relates to the state's need for men to believe they can be called to greatness from humble beginnings and become a hero, when in reality its just a way to get them into the meat grinder of war.  I can't find the podcast/video he talked about this in, but since he's recently been wanting to talk more about art, a program dedicated to this topic could be very good.

I mentioned this at the end of a post I just made, but I'd like to stick it here aswell incase it's not seen there; 'Saying Yes To Marriage', as a follow up to the recent 'Saying No To Marriage', where instead of specifically attempting to drag one caller out of their issues with marriage, you focus completely on the benefits and reasons for marriage that your audience can apply to their own thinking. The content may overlap, but this would be in formal presentation format instead of caller-response format.
