Porkins Policy Radio episode 122 The economy, Bitcoin, AI, and Christmas with JP Sottile and Aaron Franz

Friend of the show JP Sottile joins me in the first hour for an in-depth discussion about the recently passed tax reform bill in the House. We talk about what this reform package is promising and what the possible outcomes may actually be. JP discusses how this will ultimately benefit the richest of the rich in America, while most likely punishing the rest of the nation. We analysis the GOP’s strategy with pushing this wildly unpopular bill. JP and I discuss the idea that this may be part of a longer term strategy of ousting Trump from power. JP touches on Bannon’s attempts to tax the rich more and how this was rebuffed by the Republican establishment. Later we talk about how this may result in the GOP being out of power for some time. We then move onto a discussion of Bitcoin and how this has become the story that everyone is talking about. JP and I link this in with the tax reform bill and the financialization of the world economy. We talk about the idea of Bitcoin being a bubble and the logical result of our highly financialized world. JP and I also touch on the creepy transhumanist aspects of Bitcoin. We talk about the transhumanists behind Bitcoin, and how the embrace of it maybe a prelude to more transhumanists transitions. We end by briefly talking about Trump’s bizarre water drinking habits, and the rumor this is related to possible drug use.

I start off the second hour by talking about my show being reported in major news outlets including the Palm Beach Post and Daily Mail. I discuss how the mainstream media reported on my interview with F Lee Bailey and Pat McKenna, and some of the positives and negatives. Later good friend Aaron Franz joins us to discuss some of the strange occult aspects of Christmas. Aaron talks about the winter solstice’s connection to Jesus and the story of Christmas. Aaron and I also touches on the occult nature of buying a Christmas tree itself. We talk about strange ancient Greek castration practices under evergreen trees. We talk about the life and death ritual of buying a Christmas tree. We then move onto the most recent news stories about AI, focusing mostly on Sophia, Ben Goertzel, and SingularityNET. Aaron talks about Goertzel’s role within SingularityNET and his promotion of the BlockChain. We also talk about the strange rise in acceptance of sex robots and how this could be a pernicious development for society as a whole.

Why Libertarianism is the only way

Unfortunately most of the American population seems to view Libertarianism and traditional Conservatism as evil.  Rather than explore Libertarianism most Americans would rather denigrate it as a political ideology embraced by gun nuts and fringe candidates.  In the wake of Paul Ryan being chosen as Mitt Romney’s VP several news outlets published stories about how Libertarians were now suddenly going to shift over to the Romney camp.  Paul Ryan is not a Libertarian.  Just because you have read Ayn Rand and want to cut the budget does not make you a Libertarian.  In fact it is people like Paul Ryan who have given a bad name to both Libertarians and traditional Old Right Conservatives.  Well I have decided that Porkins Policy Review needs a shift.  Many people such as my self have had to hide our Libertarian leanings from our friends and family so as not to be ostracized.  Well it is time to come out of hiding and educate people on the virtues of Libertarianism.  The best place to start educating people is on the Libertarian stance on war.  So please watch the above video and read the link.  You may find out that you have a lot more in common with Libertarians than previously expected.
