Stoicism in 6 Minutes
 
06:44
Recently I've been reading a lot about Stoicism. It has been a very practical philosophy that I've been using in my day to day life. Books: Marcus Aurelius - Meditations Epictetus - Enchiridion Subscribe: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCoFWz1e3VXKOoJ-E5cep1Eg Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/Thought.Monkey.Community/ Instragram: https://www.instagram.com/thought.monkey/ Script: The word stoic often connotes emotionless-ness, a cold and hardened heart, or strength. But this connotation would seem inaccurate to the original stoics. Stoics are people who practice stoicism which is a philosophy that is thought to have been developed in the times of ancient Greece. Stoics basically believe that everything is rooted in the natural order of the universe and that to live a good life one must understand the rules of the natural order and align their beliefs, thoughts, and actions with it. In Stoicism, it is recognized that all humans have a tendency to have destructive emotions. They believe that it is in the way that we think and how self-disciplined we are with our thinking that we can overcome destructive emotions and develop a character and mind that is unbiased and calm – or what Buddhist might consider as enlightened. The Stoics understand that the world is chaotic and that the people that inhabit the world can be extremely destructive. Despite whatever negative circumstances surround us however, it is our thoughts that dictate our state. A well-known stoic Marcus Aurelius, who is considered to be one of the last great emperors of Rome, describes that, “The universe is change; our life is what our thoughts make it.” Our destiny, in other words, is not fixed. It is up to how we think about our circumstances that will determine it. Another Stoic, Epictetus who was born into slavery and eventually banished from his home in Rome said, "sick and yet happy, in peril and yet happy, dying and yet happy, in exile and happy, in disgrace and happy.” Whatever outside events happen, we can remain stable handed and at peace if we learn to self-discipline our thoughts and reactions to outside events. As in some key eastern philosophies, the Stoics stressed that clear judgment and spiritual freedom come from an absence of suffering. Epictetus states that, “The essence of the philosophy is that we should live so that our happiness depends on as little as possible on external causes.” To end suffering in Stoicism, one must have a balanced emotional response in the face of life’s highs and lows. Part of this means expecting that life is going to throw curve balls at you. That people will betray you. That you will face challenges that test your will. With the understanding that nature is an ever changing, chaotic, and wild phenomenon one can take their first steps in finding a level headedness during those wild rides the natural order of things puts us on. The Stoics would say that it’s ok, in fact it’s natural that unexpected events happens. It is neither good nor evil, just natural and it allows us a chance to practice self-discipline in our thoughts and reactions. Stoicism is not just a belief system, but it is a way of life, a daily ritual. It involves constant growth in theory, practice, and reflection. It also involves a practice of mindfulness similar to eastern philosophies. The Stoics stress training in our ability to keep our attention on the present moment. However, there are no strict doctrines that the Stoics follow, but instead, underlying principles that can be adapted to meet each individual’s needs. One practice that Marcus Aurelius defines in one of his journal entries is, “Say to yourself in the early morning: I shall meet today ungrateful, violent, treacherous, envious, uncharitable men. All of the ignorance of real good and ill... I can neither be harmed by any of them, for no man will involve me in wrong, nor can I be angry with my kinsman or hate him; for we have come into the world to work together...” Aurelius prepares himself for his day by expecting the unexpected to happen, by expecting that he will encounter evil men, by expecting that challenges will occur, and by promising that none of those events can cause him harm. Stoicism is a very powerful and pragmatic philosophy that can be used to guide ones spirit in tough times.

How the Electoral College Works in 6 Minutes
 
06:27
The Electoral College is the system that dictates how our next president is elected. Contrary to popular belief, when you or I go to the polls to vote, we are not actually voting for a presidential nominee. We are voting for an elector. Enjoy the video and please subscribe to my YouTube channel for more educational videos: Subscribe: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCoFWz1e3VXKOoJ-E5cep1Eg Script: We often believe that we live in a purely democratic nation. That we live in a nation in which the people elect their leaders through their votes. That the people get to decide who the next president will be. And while this idea is part of our national story, it is not entirely true. In fact it is not the people who get to elect the president, but instead the members of an electoral college. You see, every four years a presidential election happens and it is not you or me, but the Electoral College that directly elects the president. Citizens who vote for a presidential candidate are actually voting for what are called “electors.” These people pledge to vote for the presidential candidate that gets the popular vote in their state. Electors are represented in each of the 50 states. The amount of electors each state has coincides with how many Congressional members there are in each state. For example California right now has 53 members in the House of Representatives and 2 in the Senate, therefore California gets 55 electoral votes. Washington D.C. also gets an electoral vote which is based on the same number of the least populated state. Right now D.C. gets 3 electoral votes and there are a total of 538 electors who make up the electoral college. That means only 538 people make the final decision on which presidential candidate becomes president. Most electors have pledged to vote for which ever candidate has won the most votes in a particular state. So for example during the 2012 election between Barak Obama and Mitt Romney, Obama won the popular vote in New York and all 29 electors in New York voted for Obama. The only exceptions to this pledge is in Nebraska and Maine which both use a congressional district method. Despite this difference, in every election both states have never split their electoral votes and have always ended up following the statewide popular vote. One strange fact is that electors are not required by law to vote for the candidates that they have pledged their votes toward. Despite its legality, however, there have only been 157 cases of electors who have voted contrary to their pledge. These are called faithless electors. It should be noted that not once in the history of an election, have faithless electors changed the outcome of any presidential election. There are also many reasons why most electors remain faithful. Most electors have been chosen due to their loyalty to their political party and run the risk of political retaliation and possible criminal penalties in some states, if they vote against their pledge. The way a president wins an election is by receiving at least 270, or the absolute majority, of electoral college votes. If no candidate receives a majority, or at least 270 votes, then the House of Representatives will select the president. Months before election day, electors are nominated to their positions by each political party. On election day when you or I are at the polls and when we are voting for a presidential candidate, we are actually voting for an elector. These electors, will then meet up in their respective state capitols and sign something called the “Certification of Vote,” which is then delivered to the Office of the President of the U.S. Senate. It is on January 6 when the U.S. Congress convenes and announces the Certificates of Vote and declares the official winner.

Generations: The History of America's Future
 
10:02
The idea of generations is not a new one. But the authors William Strauss and Neil Howe came up with a theory that could potentially allow us to reasonably predict the future. They have detailed the generational history of the U.S. population and found reoccurring rhythmic themes that can be used to look into the future! Subscribe To My Channel: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCoFWz1e3VXKOoJ-E5cep1Eg Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/Thought.Monkey.Community/ Script: Months ago I was listening to an interview with Tony Robbins who said that if he could recommend any book to read he would recommend a book published in 1991 called Generations: The History of America’s Future. Because it was Tony Robbins, and I treat everything he says as gold, I had to read it. In it, the authors William Strauss and Neil Howe argue that there are themes in the past which we can use to make predictions about the course of the future. As skeptical as I was at first, the more I read, the more it seemed to make sense. Many might say that the authors are trying to determine the future of millions of people who have yet to be born. But that isn’t really what they’re talking about. Their book takes a broad look at the generations of people over the past 500 years of U.S. history and has found reoccurring themes in the “personality” of each generation and in how generations follow repeating patterns. They found that there are four reoccurring types of generations, that each generation lasts on average 22 years, and that the four types of generations arrive in the same repeating sequence. By understanding this, we can potentially predict the characteristics of the next generation of people along with probable reactions that generations may have to historical events. The authors make no claim that the future can be determined, but instead state that it is history that makes the generation while simultaneously the generation making history. The first important thing to understand in Howe’s and Strauss’ theory is what they mean by generation. A generation is a cohort of people who have been born over the same time span of around 22 years – or about the length of one phase of life (like the length of childhood, young adulthood, midlife, and old age). Members of a generation share three things in common. 1. they have been born during the same time in history – in other words they have encountered the same key historical events. As a millennial, for example, I witnessed 9/11 during roughly the same time period in my life as all other millennials - childhood And because people are shaped by the events they encounter, this leads us to 2. How they adapt similar beliefs and behaviors. As a reaction to the strong anti-Islamic sentiments after the 9/11 attacks, many of us millennials have reacted in the opposite way as our parents and country’s leaders, showing strong disapproval of generalized anti-Muslim sentiment and instead a more optimistic and open view of Muslims. And because of each generation’s awareness of the traits they share with their peers they 3. have a sense of common perceived membership in that generation. Of course, as a millennial I feel more part of the millennial generation than any other generation. The most recent generations have been the Baby Boomers which began in 1943 and ended in 1960, lasting 23 years. During their formative years some key historical events that the Boomers have encountered is the end of WWII, and the beginning of the Counter-Culture Movement. After the Boomers are the Gen Xers who are made up of people born between 1961 and 1981. After the Gen Xers are, the Millennials born from 1982 to 2004. And most recently the Homeland Generation born from 2005 on. What’s most interesting about the idea about generations of people, is that it is not a new one. In fact some of the past’s greatest thinkers have outlined the idea of a generation in a similar way as Strauss and Howe. Some include Polybius, Ibn Khaldun, and Jose Ortega y Gasset. The pilsopher Lewis Mumford also once said that “Every generation revolts against its fathers and makes friends with its grandfathers.” Which leads us to the next key idea: turnings. As mentioned before, each generation lasts around 22 years and goes through particular historical and social events together. These events are called turnings and just as a generation lasts around 22 years, so do turnings. Turnings happen in a four-stage consecutive cycle and each has been given a particular name. Howe’s and Strauss’ have detailed them in U.S. history from 1435 to the present day. A full cycle of the four turnings lasts between 80-90 years. An easier way to think about a turning is to think of it as kind of like a historical mood or season.

Guns, Germs and Steel: Why Europeans Came to Dominate the World in 7 Minutes
 
07:01
Three hundred years ago something big happened. The western world began to look at the world with new scientific eyes. There was a problem with this, though. As scientists began to classify the world into different categories, they also began to divide the human species into sub-species. Because of this an authoritative justification of slavery and colonialism happened. People have suffered because of this for over three hundred years. And while many people back in the day argue that the dominance of Europeans was because its race was “superior” to those of Africa, China, the Americans, etc. The truth is that their power really came from luck. Subscribe To My Channel: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCoFWz1e3VXKOoJ-E5cep1Eg Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/Thought.Monkey.Community/ Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/thought.monkey/ Script: In 1997 a man named Jared Diamond published a book called Guns, Germs, and Steel. The book was inspired by a question that a New Guinean man named Yali asked him. One day Yali asked Diamond, “why is it that you white people developed so much cargo and brought it to New Guinea, but we black people had little cargo of our own?” Diamond spends his book answering this question. He details evidence that points to the environment rather than biological differences between different groups of people, for their success. He goes back over 13,000 years to discover why the west rather than the east, Africa, or the Native Americans, have dominated the world. The argument he points to is the European dominance is a result of opportunity and necessity rather than any kind of particular ingenuity. That there was a chain of events that led them to the position they are in. If we go back far enough into history we can look at these developments. The road to such inequality began when people stopped being hunter-gatherers and started farming. When this happens, people don’t have to spend all their time looking for food to eat and instead can plant, harvest, and store a surplus of food. With enough food stored, people can have free time and do stuff like build cities, develop states, and consolidate those states into empires. It’s not quite as easy as it sounds, however. A number of factors must be in your favor in order to make the transition from hunting-gathering to farming. First you have to have crops that are high in nutrients which can also be stored. And you need a climate that is dry enough that will allow storage. You also need animals that can be domesticated by humans and used to help with the farming process. When you have control of these things, you can make extra food which can be used to feed lots of people who can grow the population, learn other things, and innovate socially and technologically. At this point societies start to become hierarchical and political structures develop that lead to nations being built. Another key in explaining that dominance of Europe is disease. And animal domestication had a lot to do with this. Many of the diseases that have wiped out enormous populations in Europe and Asia are a consequence of people living in close proximity with animals. Diseases like smallpox, measles, and influenza all come from living close to animals. Over hundreds of years exposure to these diseases have allowed Eurasians to develop resistances toward them. As they traveled they also took these diseases wherever they went – and when they came into contact with people who have never been exposed to them, the deaths of millions resulted. Europeans were able to adopt the animals and plants of Southwest Asia, and their agricultural techniques over thousands of years ago. By 1000 CE pretty much all of Europe had adopted the plants and methods of Southwest Asia. Because societies in Eurasia were able to produce a crop surplus and develop cities, people were able to specialize in skills outside of basic survival. People like craftsmen and scribes made Eurasian societies grow economically and technologically much faster than hunter-gatherers. These advantages eventually led the people of one part of Eurasia – Europe – to conquer the world using technological advances like guns and steel. Even today as the world has entered a more globalized era, the difference in wealth and power is huge between people who have descended from western Europeans and everyone else. In fact if you look at a list of the richest people in the world, the majority are people who have descended from western Europeans. Most of us don’t stop to think about it, but the consequences of geographical and environmental luck have had a lasting impact on each and every one of our lives today.

The Mexican-American War in 5 Minutes
 
04:17
Soon after Mexico's Independence from its colonizer, Spain, it went to war with the U.S. This war would lead to the loss of the modern day states of California, Arizona and New Mexico. While the Mexican-American War was hardly justifiable by the U.S., the fact remains, our country would be vastly different than it is today if the U.S. had never pursued its aggressive expansionist period in the 1800s. Enjoy the video and please subscribe! Script: It wasn’t that long ago that the United States went to war with its neighboring country, Mexico. Most wars in American history have not been popular amongst the American public and the Mexican-American war was no exception. Years before war broke out between the two countries, Mexico had fought its own war of independence against the Spaniards. It was in 1812 that Mexico freed itself from its colonizers. At the time the new country spanned from current day northern Oregon to the modern country of Guatemala. Its northern territory was sparsely populated and because of this the government supported plans to welcome settlers from the United States in the hopes of further developing the region. It was through this program that the majority of the population in Texas became American – by the time of the Texas Revolution nearly 10,000 of the 14,000 people living in Texas were American settlers. The only condition that the Mexican government placed on its foreign population in Texas were that they pledge loyalty to Mexico, convert to Catholicism, and live on the land they purchased for at least 10 years – Mexico also didn’t allow slavery in its country. This proved hard for the American settlers to follow because they were mostly protestant, loyal to the U.S. and proslavery. It wasn’t long before Texas erupted in rebellion and fought a revolution of its own against the Mexican government. After Texas won its independence from Mexico it tried to become part of the United States two times. However, the U.S. Congress rejected its application because many Congressmen didn’t want to antagonize the Mexican government. Additionally some Congressmen from the free north eastern states did not want to add another slave state to the country. In 1844 President James K. Polk was elected president who was an avid supporter of Manifest Destiny, or the belief that God has meant for the United States to conquer the land from the Atlantic coast to the Pacific. Polk’s eye was not just on Texas – but veered all the way to California. When Polk became president, Congress voted to annex Texas into the United States. It was in 1845 when the president sent troops under the command of General Zachary Taylor into an area between the Nueces River – which was the traditional southern border of the Mexican state of Texas – and the Rio Grande – which marks the current border between Texas and Mexico. At the same time Polk sent John Slidell to Mexico City to try and purchase California. Both of these acts angered the Mexican Government and because of this Slidell was sent back to the U.S. Polk, who felt that the Mexican government mistreated Slidell, seized the opportunity and when he was told that on May 9, 1846, Mexican soldiers had fired upon American soldiers between Rio Grande and the Nueces River Polk declared that “We have tried every effort at reconciliation. The cup of forbearance had been exhausted even before the recent information from the frontier of the Del Norte. But now, Mexico has passed the boundary of the United States, has invaded our territory and shed American blood upon the American soil.” With this Polk declared war on Mexico. However, Mexicans thought of this act as one of banditry because of course, the shots that were fired upon American soldiers, were in Mexico’s eyes still in Mexico – south of the traditional Texas state border – the Nueces River. In fact a Mexican article written just days after war was announced in the paper El Tiempo declared that “The American government acted like a bandit who came upon a traveler.” There were even U.S. Congressmen that declared the war an act unjustifiable. Senator Charles Sumner stated that “Certainly Mexico might justly charge our citizens with disgraceful robbery, while, in seeking extension of slavery, [our own citizens denied the great truths of American freedom…”
