Question 1: [2:06] – “I am struggling with my attempt to avoid the public school system while it finances are tight. I have been a stay-at-home mom for five years raising a hyper soon to be six year old boy and a kind four year old girl. As of last month our finances have become strained, and we unexpectedly are carrying two mortgages. Our plans to place both children in private school may have to be cancelled. My plan to only be at work while kids are at the school, may have to change to me working full time hours and kids moving from school to after care. I am very frugal with the money I spend; I feel my husband is more of a spender than I am, but there are certain expenses he is unwilling to cut. What more can I sacrifice to truly put my kids first? How can convey to my husband that we both don't need to be chasing finances, while finances are tight?”
Question 2: [1:11:20] – “I work for a supplier that deals in electronics selling to large manufacturers. Recently this year I was told by a corporate purchasing manager that there is nothing she can do to maintain our business relationship as my company is not woman owned or classified as a diversity supplier. My contacts with this company run into the thousands worldwide, and the director who I was speaking with has a great deal of unchecked power. The company is a technology company, and I have worked with many women over my 23-year career all of whom are professional and have not harbored the least scrap of negativity toward me in my work, and I assume are assets to their teams. This perhaps is the greatest challenge to me in my career, we can always get a new customer and shame on me for creating a living off a multi-million-dollar account having kept most of my eggs in one basket. What does a man who works for a white male owned company do when his best fortune 50 customer says we no longer want to work with you because the company you work for is not classified as a diversity source?”
Question 3: [1:44:09] – “I have laid out an argument that the concept of ‘identity’ is logically invalid or meaningless within the domain of human being. I also have an argument that the contradiction of ‘identity’ is significant because it sets the conditions necessary for the initiation of violence against people; thus, violating the Non-Aggression Principle.”
Question 4: [2:13:45] – “I am a former Antifa-style anarchist. In 2011, I was part of the Occupy movement, but in 2016 I voted for Trump after a long and difficult intellectual journey from radical Leftism to Conservatism. My hope now is to help other people trapped in the Radical Left to de-hypnotize themselves. Do you have any thoughts on how to do this, or any advice on how to transition back into society?”
