15 Things I’ve Learned in 15 Years
1. People don’t fundamentally change when they “wake up”
2. Almost no one is actually anti-war nor actually pro-freedom
3. People want to be ruled
4. Everyone’s your best friend . . . until you say something they disagree with
5. Most people think this is a spectator sport
6. People do not rationally arrive at conclusions, they “feel” something to be true and then rationalize why their feeling is correct
7. The more you learn, the less you know
8. You should be more confident with what you do know
9. A certain section of the public is truly incapable of understanding satire or identifying sarcasm
10. The most important research is dumbed down when it becomes widespread
11. People get their “news” from headlines
12. People absolutely judge books (videos) by their cover (title and thumbnail)
13. You can’t wake someone up who’s pretending to be asleep
14. Everyone thinks they are EXPERTS at breaking down video “evidence”…but they’re all wrong
(Case in point: Upon Meeting A Friend for the First Time)
