Question 2: [54:39] - “How do I deal with close friends or family members suddenly disowning me as a result of the recent US election? My best friend, who I call my sister, of 15 years has decided in the last 6 months to become a feminist, gender-queer and in need of safe spaces, despite the fact that she's never worked before and even dropped out of college because undergraduate course work was sexist.”
Question 3: [1:54:52] - "Stefan has talked several times about the inevitable market correction resulting from the devaluing of our currency, our unfunded liabilities, and the rampant welfare state. I am a prepper, and publish a podcast about preparedness. Could Stefan speak about what this market correction will result in, what to expect, what it's duration will be, and what concerns a person should have to protect their families during the ensuing chaos?"
Question 4: [2:24:24] - “You can’t change a rocks course by speaking to it but you can change a human’s course by speaking to it. Relating that doing a thing that by your beliefs shouldn't work in an attempt to make it work is insane’ in no way makes ‘doing a thing that by your beliefs can work in an attempt to make it work’ insane. There's nothing insane with speaking to an AI to get an answer, pushing a rock to get a movement or speaking towards a human to get an answer. Do you agree that your argument explaining that arguing for determinism is inconsistent is not valid?”
Question 5: [3:03:47] - “During my final school years, my Literature teacher told me that I was full of potential, which I was not using. At that time I disregarded the comment, since I had little interest in wasting more time on school than necessary. Now, years later, I have finished my university abroad and took a year break, using welfare from the unemployment fund. Two months into it, I realized that I am nothing else but a NEET, something I never aspired to be. Moreover, the time off I intended to spend self-studying and developing, is spent procrastinating. Even though I really want to, I rarely feel compelled to do anything. Sometimes, I can’t even force myself out of bed, but I am not depressed, I am alarmingly content. All of that made me reflect on the teachers remark and question my decision. How does one know and fulfill his potential?”
