Join me on Patreon: The Bus Transfer

I am so excited to announce the launching of my new Patreon page called, 'The Bus Transfer'. I aim to answer the call of my supporters for a space where they can work through their transition from Leftist politics and ideologies. Notice I did not insert any political party of group. This space is all about those waking up from the Radical Liberal agenda. It's for everyone, ALL races and it's an acknowledgement that it is time to fill the void that happens when one #walksaway from the agenda. It's not easy to do and this is why I want to provide my input and advice on how I have made it through this process. What is a Bus Transfer?"A transfer allows the rider of a public transportation vehicle who pays for a single-trip fare to continue the trip on another bus or train." - Wikiped...

The Pursuit of Value Births Hierarchies

Part 2As a follow up to the first post about how Value Propositions give Purpose to one's life, I'd like to touch on how the presence of something valuable, which is to be obtained, creates competition and competition creates hierarchies of competence. I'd like to note here that competition should not be feared. It is only when we lack confidence in ourselves that fear having to compete. Further below, I will show how culture plays a great role in producing, not only confidence, but pride in oneself. Jordan Peterson on Hierarchies If we are going to pursue value, the pursuit would inevitably be done in a social space. Within that social space, multiple people will pursue the same object of value. As is true in all things, some will be better, faster, more apt to attain the go...

Luxury Beliefs

Article By Rob Henderson A former classmate from Yale recently told me “monogamy is kind of outdated” and not good for society. So I asked her what her background is and if she planned to marry. She said she comes from an affluent family and works at a well-known technology company. Yes, she personally intends to have a monogamous marriage — but quickly added that marriage shouldn’t have to be for everyone. She was raised by a traditional family. She planned on having a traditional family. But she maintained that traditional families are old-fashioned and society should “evolve” beyond them. What could explain this? In the past, upper-class Americans used to display their social status with luxury goods. Today, they do it with luxury beliefs. People care a lot about so...

An Argument for Raising Your Children Abroad

Excerpts from an Article about Jackie O.'s decision to live abroad. My daughter and I slow travel full-time, which means every 5-6 months, we are moving to a new country. I love being a black digital nomad. In fact, I call myself the OG Black digital nomad because I have been doing it for such a long time. I love the freedom of my work from anywhere lifestyle.  I love the ability to be able to show my daughter the world.  I love visiting new places with her and also revisiting places I’ve been to before and seeing them through her eyes.  She won’t be a child forever and I am extremely grateful to have the freedom to show up each day as a happy, well-rested, and energized mother for her.     I have loved our time and experiences in Guatemala....
