This week Andrei, Jeremy, and I do an ad-hoc episode just for fun. We got in to Apple’s recent refusal to provide an iPhone back door to the FBI, and why that is a good thing.
Jonathan, Merrick, and Manny take on the idea that the soldiers are only fighting for our “freedoms”. We take a critical look at that claim and determine that there is more to the politics of war than meets the eye.

Dustin and I discuss his recent government anti-registration-molestation for the crime of not paying his extortion fee. This went off into the history of contract and common law, the Magna Carta, setting legal precedence, as well as social contract fallacies. This one is fortified with a heavy dose of extra Latin for your pleasure!
In this episode Merrick, Jonathan, and Nick discuss methodologies of philosophy including nihilism, stoicism, and obectivism. We also cover the Trivium method, and Nick showsus how deep down the rabbit hole he can go with no notes on his personal philosophy.
