How the News Manipulates You, Me and Itself in 9 Minutes
The news these days is filled with sensational headlines meant to constantly grab our attention. But why? Shouldn’t the news just be a report on significant events that have an effect on our lives? Why are we flooded with “breaking news,” and trending tweets that don’t matter? Check out The Journey's YouTube Channel: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCPalX5tJprIlv7HqjQWP7cA 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/ Today we're going to be talking about why the news has little to do with the news. There are two events that are covered in the news world – those that happen spontaneously and those that are what the author Daniel Boorstin call “pseudo-events.” Spontaneous events are events that happen by themselves – things like a local Earthquake or terrorist attack – in other words they are rare but important enough that the news will cover them because they are noteworthy enough. Pseudo-events however are planned, man-made, and mostly predictions of probabilities that may or may not occur. They are mostly used in self-interest as a way to grab attention and gain coverage. For example there might be a hotel that wants more business. So they hire a PR firm that tells them to set up a celebration of their 13th anniversary. They form a committee of rich people, plan the event and hire photographers and journalists to report on it. If this were a truly an important event it would all happen on its own. There’d be no need to hire photographers and reporters because they’d be there naturally. In other words the power to make an event reportable is really based on the power to make an experience. A false report like this hotel anniversary affects people’s perception of reality – of what actually is important and what is not. But before the 20th century people didn’t expect exciting news every single day. It was ok if the news was boring or the paper wasn’t even published that day because nothing may have happened that was noteworthy. Nowadays we expect sensational news daily or even hourly. And the journalist is expected to find a story where there is no story. There is increased demand for illusion, which has resulted in a change in how the news is delivered, but also a change in what we expect from the news. The news is now a business and if we didn’t create and implement pseudo-events, thousands would be out of work. Fake news has become the norm and has been propagated even more with the invention of television. TV has made it easy to deliver constant news to millions of people. This has increased the media’s ability to feed its audience content, while at the same time financially supporting itself.

Is Gender a Social Construct? in 7 Minutes
Gender is a very touchy subject these days - whether you believe it's a social construct or you don't. Both sides of the argument seem to overlook evidence on the opposing view. In this short video I'll go over some of the main arguments and evidence that both support the idea of gender as a social construct and refute it. Subscribe To My Channel: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCoFWz1e3VXKOoJ-E5cep1Eg Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/Thought.Monkey.Community Music: Phoniks - No Stress https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Pf6p4Inmlm8 Summary: In recent years many social scientists have begun to believe that gender identity is not a stable and fixed trait. They argue that it is socially constructed and can vary over time. Some have even argued that there are more than two genders and have created additional classifications by using terms such as cis-gender, transgender, gender queer, non-binary, gender fluid, agender, etc. Anyways, the two competing ideas about whether gender is a social construct come from the familiar nature vs. nurture debate. In other words, is it our environment that makes us who we are or our biology? Those who say gender is a social construct often argue the following: 1. There are differences in gender norms in different cultures. For example there are subcultures in India that identify three genders. And in Chile some believe you must channel another gender to accomplish certain tasks. The list goes on. According to the academics Candace West and Don Zimmerman gender is “an emergent feature of social situations: both as an outcome of and a rationale for various social arrangements, and as a means of legitimating one of the most fundamental divisions of society" (West & Zimmerman, 1977, p. 126). By the way I looked up Candace West on Rate My Professor and she only got a 2.1 out of 5. Would you eat at a restaurant that got such a low Yelp score? I don’t think so. Old Donny didn’t do much better. 2. Language forms our reality. The words man and woman are simply words to describe certain phenomena, but don’t describe every option or experience of all people in our culture. Phrases like “be a man” or “boys don’t cry” are used to pressure boys into conforming to traditional masculine gender roles while “run like a girl” and other women-centered phrases pressure girls into behaving in a way that is considered traditionally feminine. Others say that gender is a feature of nature, not nurture. They say: 1. Being exposed to testosterone and estrogen will make the way we behave inherently different. For example, there are studies that show male babies and female babies behave differently given different stimulus. Male babies tend to stare longer at mechanic objects while female babies tend to stare longer at faces which may explain why women and men tend to find themselves in different career paths –men often gravitate toward science and engineering while women toward health care and education. 2. The reason some women and men identify as a gender opposite of their sex is because sometimes nature has hiccups. For example some female fetuses are exposed to large quantities of male hormones and develop Congenital Adrenal Hyperplasia – a fancy term for a disease that may alter the sex organs of people. Also, there are members of the trans-community that believe gender is biological. Some transwomen have stated that while they were brought into this world as men, from the get go they felt biologically that they were women, and thus behaved as a woman. Their argument is that if gender was socially constructed, then as a boy who felt like a girl they would have been socially pressured into feeling like boys. However, despite being socially pressured into feeling like boys these transgender women have always felt like women despite their sex being male. 3. A boy named David Reimar whose circumcision went horribly wrong, was given sex reassignment surgery as a 22 month year old and was raised as a girl named Brenda. Brenda was given girl toys, but always seemed to gravitate toward more traditionally boy toys. Eventually as a teenager she expressed her suicidal thoughts to her parents, and her father told her what had happened. Despite the female hormones and socialized pressures to be a girl, Brenda identified as a male and changed her name back to David when she was 14. Years later David started treatment to reverse the reassignment given to him as a 22 month year old and married a woman. Unfortunately years later after battling with a failed marriage and depression, at 38 years old he killed himself. This shows that despite the social pressures of David’s parents and doctors to identify as a girl – he still felt like a boy.

Your Internal Monologue: Why People Talk to Themselves in 3 Minutes
Do you ever talk to yourself? Yeah, me too. This is called your inner voice or sometimes your internal monologue. Ever wonder why? Well psychologists from Lev Vygostky to modern professors have been studying this for years. Watch the video to learn what we know about why you talk to yourself. Subscribe To My Channel: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCoFWz1e3VXKOoJ-E5cep1Eg Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/Thought.Monkey.Community/ Music Credits: Dope Violin & Trumpet Beat - Diract Beats https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=voig7MmtF5A Script: Have you ever been talking to yourself when a friend walks in the room? Yeah, super awkward. But why? Everyone talks to themselves. Whether it’s out loud or just in their head. When I’m on super long road trips I usually end up having a full on conversation with myself. Or if other people are around, the conversation just simply moves into my head. Scientists call this our internal monologue or sometimes refer to it as our inner voice. It’s so weird, because not only are we constantly having silent conversations with ourselves, but it often feels like we can actually hear our conversations out loud even though it’s happening in our heads. Since the dawn of the study of psychology, psychologists have been studying our inner voice. The Soviet psychologist Lev Vygostky believed that our inner voice occurred because of the internalization of external speech. So for example when you hear yourself or another speak out loud, you internalize the sound of it and recreate the sounds you’ve perceived in your mind. That’s why your inner voice sounds like your voice and when you are thinking about what your mom might say to you after doing another bump of Chuck Norriss, you recreate the sound of her nagging voice asking you why you haven’t settled down with a nice girl and gotten married yet. You see, scientists have found through neurological experiments that the same part of brain used when we talk out loud is used when we are using our inner voice. This is called Broca’s area – and you guessed it, it’s named after the scientist who discovered the link between speech and that part of the brain. And as we use Broca’s area, simultaneously we are using the same muscles in our throat that we use just before we make sound come out of our mouths – the Larynx. Wonder where that word came from? Well, look it up ‘cause I have no idea. Anyways, almost everyone talks to themselves. For many years, some professor at the University of Las Vegas studied this shit and found that while it is still unclear as to why exactly we have an inner voice, we almost all do. Of course there are exceptions such as some dyslexic and deaf people who both report having an inner voice that is made up of mostly visual pictures or symbols rather than sounds like normal people do. And by normal I don’t mean that dyslexic and deaf people are abnormal, rather that – well no I guess that’s what I’m saying. Speaking of abnormal people, those who have auditory hallucinations probably think they are hearing voices due to the fact that their inner speech may just be not recognized by them as self-produced. The evidence shows that the same parts of the brain that are active during inner speech are active during auditory hallucinations. In a 2012 Finish study, it was found that during auditory hallucinations, the part of the brain that is tied to self-awareness is less active, meaning that auditory hallucinations might be a result of hearing one’s own inner speech without being self-aware that they are having inner speech. Ok. But why do we talk to ourselves? Well I hate to break it to you, but the answer to that isn’t quite known. It might be an evolutionary step as our inner voices actually help us with tasks. For example chess players whose inner voices are suppressed aren’t able to perform as well as those whose inner voices aren’t interrupted. You may experience this when a person is talking to you while you are in the middle of a project. While out of politeness you may continue to converse with the person, you silently want to cuss them out because you just f’ed up the Lego Star Wars Sandcrawler that you had been working on for hours. Our inner voice can also act as a motivator and help us overcome difficult situations by urging us to strive on and not give up. However, it can be just as damaging as helpful. Many describe their inner voice to be nasty or cruel. We’ve all been there. But you, know, don’t let it get you down.

Introverts vs Extroverts in 5 Minutes
If you’re an introvert someone at some point in time has probably asked you what’s wrong? Are you feeling ok? Why are you so quiet? And you silently in your head want to politely say: Would you please SHUT THE F*CK UP? But instead you end up saying the same thing you always say: Nothings wrong. Yes I’m fine. Or I didn’t realize I was being so quiet. Get the Book - Quiet: The Power of Introverts in a World That Can't Stop Talking: http://amzn.to/2l8QsVM Subscribe To My Channel: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCoFWz1e3VXKOoJ-E5cep1Eg Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/thought.monkey/ Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/Thought.Monkey.Community/ Music Credits: Mad Smoky – Autumn: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KdCFpA4H3OU Script: The terms introvert and extrovert come from the Swiss psychologist Carl Jung. But our current understanding of the idea comes more from the German psychologist Hans Eysenck. The idea can be thought of as a spectrum. On one side you have the extreme extrovert that is super outgoing, talkative, and energetic while on the other you have the extreme introvert who is very reserved and solitary. Most of us lie somewhere on this spectrum, and some of us even lie in the middle and would be considered an ambivert. Ambiverts get the best of both worlds and have been scientifically shown to be better sales people than both extroverts and introverts, but that’s beside the point. Some people mistake an introverted person as a shy person. But the two are actually unrelated. Shyness is a fear of social judgment. While introversion is simply how one responds to stimulation – whether social or not. Introverts simply feel more alive in quiet, low key environments. Part of this has to do with science. First, all humans have something called an Ascending Reticular Activating System which is part of the brain stem that regulates how much stimulation we need to feel good. You see, your brain wants to feel good and needs a certain amount of stimulation in order to reach a happy point. While introverts already have a lot of stimulation going on in their brains, they don’t need as much external stimulation to get to that happy point. The opposite is true of extroverts who have less stimulation going on in their brains and thus need more external stimulation to reach their happy point. Second, our personality traits are linked to our genetics to an extent. There are studies that show that extroverts share two copies of one allele that introverts lack. Third, brain scans of both show that introverts have a thicker frontal lobe than extroverts which is linked to a tendency toward deep thought and planning over impulsive action, but are also linked to anxiety and depression. Finally, in another study in which extroverts and introverts were asked to look at photos of people, the brains of extroverts responded more strongly when seeing groups of people in photos, implying that introverts don’t need as much social connection to feel good. The book by Susan Cain, Quiet: The Power of Introverts in a World That Can’t Stop Talking explains how our society is structured for extroverts, and how that might limit the creative progress of it. You see Cain found that a third to half of the population are introverts, but if you look at schools or the work place, nearly all people are expected to work cooperatively in groups and the leaders that emerge are generally the most outspoken and extroverted. And while this happen frequently the research shows introverts may be better leaders due to their careful and thoughtful consideration of ideas and their ability to allow those they lead to feel more autonomous. Some introverted leaders in history include Abraham Lincoln, Ghandi, and Rosa Parks. Cain also says that solitude is a crucial ingredient to creativity. In fact Charles Darwin is famous for turning down dinner invitations and taking long walks by himself in the woods. You can also see this in most world belief systems – where the likes of the Buddha, Jesus, and Muhammad all go off on a solo journey, finding wisdom, and return with a message. Sounds like the Hero’s Journey huh? The fact is, is that there are zero correlations between being the best talker and having the best ideas. But our society is structured so that the best talker usually becomes the leader. How did this happen?

Does Raising Minimum Wage Help or Hurt You in 6 Minutes
Does raising minimum wage help or hurt you? That is the question that economists have been asking themselves over the past few years as cities like San Francisco and Los Angeles have been raising their minimum wages well beyond the federal minimum wage requirement. And while it may seem like a blessing, there are also some noteworthy consequences that recent studies have discovered. And while some say getting rid of the minimum wage in its entirety is the answer, others say we need to increase it federally to $15 an hour. But of course there are problems with both of these solutions.

Overpill. When Big Pharma exploits mental health
More films about America: https://rtd.rt.com/tags/usa/ The US has a highly developed pharmaceutical industry offering treatments for all kinds of mental disorders. Millions of Americans are being medicated for ailments as diverse as depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder and many others. Even young children are being put on psychiatric drugs. If parents decline such treatment, social services may intervene. Many patients, who’ve been taking these pills for years, insist that they do more harm than good. They have experienced disturbing side effects such as suicidal thoughts, addiction and even neurological damage. A lot of patients were put on their medication as children and by the time they were legally old enough to decide for themselves, they had already become addicted. They testify that breaking their dependency on the drugs is extremely difficult because, like any habit forming narcotic, they cause severe withdrawal symptoms. RTD meets some of the sufferers to hear their stories of battling to shake off prescribed medicines. Father of 5, Josh, was given anxiety medication, it caused Akathisia and Dystonia. Both are physical disorders causing involuntary and uncontrolled body movement and have left him disabled. Olivia’s son was prescribed psychiatric drugs to treat Attention Deficit Disorder (ADHD). Olivia soon noticed side effects and refused to continue giving him the pills. He was taken by social services and hospitalised. Denis from Russia used to work for a pharmaceutical company in the US but after meeting his wife, who had suffered from the side effects of antidepressants for most of her life, he started questioning the necessity for such widespread psychiatric prescribing. Their claims are supported by lawyers and medical professionals. Psychiatrist Dr. Peter Breggin is a vocal critic of psychiatric medication. He is adamant that the drugs are toxic and that many problems people talk to physiatrists about can be treated without resorting to drugs. His book on how to stop taking psychiatric medicines has helped thousands of patients who have struggled with the challenge. RTD meets a few of them.

Libertarianism in 6 Minutes
Libertarianism is a political movement that is all about creating the maximum amount of economic and social freedom. In the U.S. especially, Libertarians advocate the removal of all but the most necessary taxes to keep society functioning while removing any laws that infringe upon your rights of freedom of choice. In a nut shell you can do whatever you want as long as you do not harm or infringe upon another persons natural rights.

Charisma in 3 Minutes
Most of us at some point in time have been around someone we just can’t stand. Recently at work, our boss was fired and a new young guy was hired to replace him. Nice enough guy. But completely unlikeable. All he does all day is tickle his own pickle. You might ask what that even means and I don’t really know. But anyways he’s a micromanager that loves to talk about how great everything he does is. Hopefully he’ll watch this video and learn a thing or two. And hopefully he won’t know it’s me. Get the Book: http://amzn.to/2kO7jOz 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/ Music Credits: Snares - Ninetythree Some might think that the best way to get people to like you is to become as attractive, interesting, wealthy, and popular as possible. And while there might be some truth to that, likeability is more about how you interact with those around you. Some of the people I like the most in life aren’t rich, aren’t attractive, don’t live particularly interesting lives, and aren’t popular. Instead they take interest in me and my life. So the first thing you can do to get others to like you is to simply take an authentic interest in people. Learn their names and use them. Science has proven that people love to hear the sound of their own names. Ask them about their interests and encourage them to talk about them with you. Don’t over think it. If they express an interest in photography simple ask them their story about how they got into it or what they plan to do with it. The art here is to make the other person feel like you are sincerely interested in what they have to say. This will make the other person feel important. But you also don’t want to overdo it and come off as a weirdo who wants to know every little detail about the other person’s life. Most people like to have some degree of privacy about their personal life and would rather you not pry. When you start taking too much of an interest, this plan might backfire and actually make you less liked than if you took no interest at all. So be careful out there and don’t be a creep. Next. Simply be presentable. Smile and use friendly body language. Dress well and keep yourself groomed. No one likes a smelly person or a person with dirty fingernails, unkept hair, and bad breath. Do yourself a favor and shower daily, brush your teeth and floss. Unless of course you are in a famous hipster band – then do whatever the f*ck you want, because people hate you anyways. Finally be humble. You’d think this goes without saying, but there are a lot of egotistical a**holes out there that don’t understand their lack of humility is a huge part of what makes this world a terrible place. It’s ok to try your best to be right all the time, but you also have to know when you’re wrong. You have to respect the opinions of others even if you disagree with them, if you want others to respect yours. There’s an old poem by Chief Tecumseh of the Shawnee Indian tribe that says this best: "So live your life that the fear of death can never enter your heart. Trouble no one about their religion; respect others in their view, and demand that they respect yours. Love your life, perfect your life, beautify all things in your life. Seek to make your life long and Its purpose in the service of your people.” Also don’t call people guy or buddy or chief. It’s annoying. Use their f*cking names. So what does this all boil down to? Simple. Don’t be born on the Jersey Shore.

Dr Peter Gøtzsche exposes big pharma as organized crime
For more informative videos and free information visit http:drmcdougall.com Peter C. Gøtzsche, MD is a Danish medical researcher, and leader of the Nordic Cochrane Center at Rigshospitalet in Copenhagen, Denmark. He has written numerous reviews within the Cochrane collaboration. Dr.Gøtzsche has been critical of screening for breast cancer using mammography, arguing that it cannot be justified; His critique stems from a meta-analysis he did on mammography screening studies and published as Is screening for breast cancer with mammography justifiable? in The Lancet in 2000. In it he discarded 6 out of 8 studies arguing their randomization was inadequate. In 2006 a paper by Gøtzsche on mammography screening was electronically published in the European Journal of Cancer ahead of print. The journal later removed the paper completely from the journal website without any formal retraction. The paper was later published in Danish Medical Bulletin with a short note from the editor, and Gøtzsche and his coauthors commented on the unilateral retraction that the authors were not involved in. In 2012 his book Mammography Screening: Truth, Lies and Controversy was published. In 2013 his book Deadly Medicines and Organized Crime: How Big Pharma has Corrupted Healthcare was published. http://www.cochrane.org/

The New “Disrupters” in Healthcare – Patients and Pharmacists | Rajiv Shah | TEDxFargo
Dr. Shah is the CEO of MyMeds (www.my-meds.com), a digital health company whose medication adherence platform engages patients, physicians and pharmacists to work together. Technology is disrupting consumer industries across the globe. In healthcare, technology is being used to improve systems, but the new disruption will be driven by people – patients and pharmacists. Like never before, patients are demanding consumer technologies to help them become more engaged on their changing health care team. The new team brings pharmacists off the bench and puts them in a starring role to help solve one of healthcare’s biggest issues – the $300 billion problem of medication non-adherence (not taking medicines properly). Dr. Shah is the CEO of MyMeds and a Board-certified nephrologist who practices in Minneapolis. Combining his front-line experience of understanding the multiple roles (patient, provider, entrepreneur) in a rapidly-changing health environment, and his dedication to implementing digital health IT to improve health outcomes, Dr. Shah provides a unique perspective on innovation in healthcare today. He received his M.D. from the University of Minnesota Medical School, and attended Boston University, from where he graduated with a B.A. in Cognitive Psychology with a focus on memory creation. This provided the foundation on which the MyMeds adherence platform was created to improve medication-taking behaviors. He has been recognized for his work in business, medicine and philanthropy with the Virginia McKnight Binger Award in Human Service, 40 Under 40, Ten Outstanding Young Minnesotans, and Real Power. www.my-meds.com This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community.

The Cost of College in 4 Minutes
Why College is so Expensive: I’m a lucky guy. I didn’t do so well in high school and didn’t meet the requirements to go to university right off the bat. Instead, I went to Community College, lived at home, worked a part time job, and saved a sh*t load of money. Afterwards I went to a public University and saved even more money. I graduated during a huge recession without debt thanks to my privileged circumstances which allowed me to think less about the money I’d earn after college and more about my interests. That being said, tuition to even state Universities has increased dramatically since I graduated - making the once realistic American dream seem a distant memory for many of us youngsters. Music: Mono:Massive - Attila My Mic: http://amzn.to/2mj7P3j 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/ Just how expensive is college? The website Collegedata.com states that one year at a public University will cost on average roughly $25,000 while at a private University it will cost $50,000. This hasn’t always been the case. From 1984 to 2014 tuition for public universities has increased 225%. And to make matters more daunting, only 19% of students actually graduate at a “4” year university within 4 years – making the majority graduating within 5 or 6 years. And while tuition goes up and it takes longer for students to graduate, on average it takes longer for college grads to earn back what they’ve spent on tuition which on average is at 36 years old. Moreover college grads has been earning less and less over the past 10 years while the cost of college is skyrocketing. But why? High education is just like a business. In fact some say that the U.S. Department of Education makes $15 billion dollars in profit from student loans every year. If students stopped taking out loans and going to college, our economy might just collapse. Universities want to attract students, just like businesses want to attract customers. To do this need to hire the best professors who can conduct research in the most up to date and technologically advanced labs. This is not cheap. The average salary for a professor is $100,000. A lab? Probably a lot more expensive than that. Universities also need to have beautifully built campuses. Again not cheap. Not only do the buildings need to be architecturally aesthetic, but the grounds need to be taken care of and the buildings maintained. Universities also must have attractive amenities like career services, health centers, and even psychiatric availability. All of this costs a sh*t load of money and creates a load of competition between the universities. Consider it like an arms race education style. But that’s not all. In order to pay for such expenses, universities create high tuition and use financial aid to help those who can’t afford it on their own and take as much as possible to those that can afford it. This is called the Bennett Hypothesis – our government provides loans and financial aid to students, and colleges get their money whether it’s from students who take out loans, get financial aid, or can pay for it out of pocket. If schools know that students have more money to spend, they can raise tuition, and make their campuses more attractive to potential students, which causes more competition between schools. So when the government is providing subsidies for its citizens to go to college –there is more demand for education now that more and more people can afford to go to college – and this in turn encourages colleges to charge more for education and they can increase their marketability by spending that money on professors, campus beautification or improved amenities. The real question however is - is college worth it? That I cannot answer. But I will say that going to college has made me widen my perspective and allowed me to pursue ideas that I probably wouldn’t have if I had not gone. College is about your education and an investment that will last you a lifetime. The only answer I can give you is to think about what you are passionate about and do it. If you don’t need a college degree to pursue your passion, don’t go. But if you think college will enrich your life and help you obtain mastery in your passion, then go.

Globalization: Why Everything is Made in China in 5 Minutes
Remember the opening scene to the amazing Nick Cage movie Lord of War? The one where you follow the life of a bullet from its birth in a factory to its shipment from the Soviet Union to the jungles of Africa? When I watched that I was mesmerized. Almost all of our material goods make a similar journey. From the extraction of raw materials found in the Earth, to their production in a factory most likely somewhere in Asia, to the retail store that you or I can head to down the street. My Mic: http://amzn.to/2mj7P3j 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/ Music: L'indécis - Day by Day Script: The last time you looked at your T-shirt tag you probably noticed that it was made in China, or Bangladesh, or Pakistan, or…wherever - you get the point. But have you stopped to ask yourself why they never say England, or France, or the U.S.? Well as most of us probably know already it has to do with cost. But that’s only part of the story. Awhile back I read an interesting article on NPR that talked about the journey of a t-shirt. In their investigations they found that the cotton for most t-shirts are grown in either China, India or surprisingly the U.S. in places like Texas. If the cotton is grown in the U.S. it is then shipped over 7,000 miles to China or India where the milling process begins which transforms the plant cotton into yarn or sheets. From there it is shipped another 1,800 miles to Bangladesh where it is sewn into shirts by workers who are paid $40 a month in super sketchy conditions. In 2013 for example a factory collapsed and killed 1,100 garment workers. Most popular clothing companies like Gap, Walmart, Target and well pretty much every store you can think of rely heavily on suppliers from this region. When sewn the shirts are shipped another 8,000 miles back to the U.S. where they are delivered to retailers, folded neatly by workers who are paid whatever the minimum wage in your city is and sold for $20 bucks a pop. The estimated miles traveled for any given t-shirt from cotton farm to retail store? About 16,000 miles. $20 bucks for an item that has seen more of the world than you or I have? Not bad. But why does this happen and how is it a viable economic model? During the 19th century the process of industrialization began which was basically the time when everyday household items became easier to make with the use of machines and standardization and allowed the prices of items to decrease making it more affordable for the public to buy. Along with this there was a transportation revolution with the invention of the steam engine making shipping using boats or trains much cheaper. At the same time Europeans were busy conquering the world which had the sometimes very unwanted effect of integrating parts of the world with other parts of the world. But nonetheless it happened and here we are. Because of this more and more nations began to embrace international trade while at the same time vigorously competing with each other to gain economic and military dominance over one another and their colonies. Eventually this competition grew to a tipping point and WWI happened. Then WWII happened. Then the Cold War. Finally after the Cold War when most major government decided to just chill the f*ck out, a period of rapid globalization happened. But it was really after the agreements made by the international community after WWII, that laid the foundation to the kind of globalization that we know and either love or hate or have no opinion about today. Most countries agreed to an international monetary policy which basically has made it easier for countries to trade with each other by eliminating or reducing taxes. This led to other economic agreements between the international community and eventually the World Trade Organization which currently provides a system for countries to make trade agreements with one another. There are also other bilateral agreements between countries – for example the U.S. and South Korea has a Free Trade Agreement which eliminates 95% of taxes or NAFTA between Canada, Mexico, and the U.S. which probably ruined the lives of millions of poor corn farmers in Mexico – but that’s a story for another time.

Utilitarianism in 4 Minutes
What if instead of providing homeless shelters, food, and work programs for all homeless people around the country, we murdered them and harvested their organs so that we could save the lives of thousands of hard working people who needed organ transplants? Haha - just kidding. But many think that this is what the idea of utilitarianism is all about - doing actions that have a consequence that will do the most good for the most people – in this case taking organs from people who do little for their community and giving them to people who do much for their community. But it’s not quite as simple as organ stealing as you might think. My Mic: http://amzn.to/2mj7P3j 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/ Music Credits: Snares - Circuit In the mid-18th century the philosopher and statesman Jeremy Bentham was born in England. This guy was straight up hippie for his time. He believed in freedom of speech, abolition of slavery, women’s rights, gay rights - I mean this is stuff that some people don’t even believe in today. He also founded the idea of utilitarianism - the main principle being that “the right action is the one that produces the most overall happiness.” But here’s where the misunderstandings come in. First we have to define what Bentham and other utilitarian’s consider happiness or pleasure. Some might think that this means they can watch porn, smoke weed, and eat Oreos all day. But that would be wrong. You see the utilitarianism people have distinguished two types of pleasure. A higher pleasure - related to our intellect and a lower pleasure - related to our senses. You see it is not just how much pleasure we receive, but the quality of it as well – kind of like anything in life. 10 ok cookies might not be as yummy as 1 extremely f*cking delicious cookie. In utilitarianism the delicious cookie is intellectual pleasure, and is more highly valued than physical pleasure – the ok cookie. So if you’re thinking about watching porn, try reading a book about Particle Physics or Paleomagnetism instead. At the same time our happiness is not just a selfish individual kind of happiness, but rather communal. Everyone’s happiness counts the same and there is no room for prejudice or discrimination – it is the total amount of happiness that the masses has that counts. Think of it like this – the action that you do that gives the most amount of people happiness is the best action you can do – which might mean you actually make sacrifices to your happiness in order to make others happy. So to put it into mathematical terms it might look like total amount of happiness in all people + the right action to get the most amount of people happy = utilitarianism. But there are problems to this idea. First, we don’t all agree on what makes us happy. For one person, it might mean having a loving family, for another it might mean playing World of Warcraft all day long, and for another it might mean living in a cave somewhere in India. The second problem is after miraculously coming up with a consensus as to what happiness is it’s even harder to figure out what the right action is to arrive at such happiness. There is a famous thought experiment that goes something like this. There is a train speeding down the railroad. There is a switch up ahead. On one side you have five people tied to the tracks and on the other you have one person tied down. You are in a position to switch the track so the train runs over the one person rather than the five people. Would you do it? The utilitarian would perform the action that creates the most amount of happiness and would switch the track. One life taken is better than five, right? But what if that one guy was a philanthropic humanitarian and the other five were just a**holes? Well, sh*t then you might have some disagreements. Could you reform the douchebags to become better people so that they could do more good than the one guy? Or maybe after this experience the one good guy becomes an a**hole because he realizes that in spite of his good guyness he still was tied down to a train for some unknown reason and now wants to start living for himself.

Stoicism in 6 Minutes
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.

Why We Pay Taxes to the Government in 4 Minutes
Taxes are one of those things that we all have to pay. If we don't there are pretty severe consequences. But why do we have to pay them in the first place? When did this system begin? In the U.S. federal taxes were not mandatory until Congress passed a law in 1913 which gave itself the power to levy taxes on the public regardless of which state one lives in. Many, however continue to protest that this law is unconstitutional. Unfortunately for those protestors, the IRS and Courts don't quite empathize with their points of view. Subscribe To My Channel: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCoFWz1e3VXKOoJ-E5cep1Eg Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/Thought.Monkey.Community/ Music Credits: Phoniks - Got to my Head: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sVztvYjdxnQ Script: I’m sure you’ve all heard of Wesley Snipes, right? What you may not know is that this millionaire landed himself in jail for three years after trying to get away with not paying over 7 million bucks in taxes. Why does our government believe it has the right to take away our hard earned cash and use it for flying jet planes and bombing Arab villages? Well listen and find out. First what do taxes do? Well there are many viewpoints on this, and some might say they do nothing. Some might even say they do more harm than good. But the reality is, regardless of your position, taxes pay the salaries of the people in government – like all those Congress people you see in suits on TV. It also provides us with infrastructure like roads, and other random little stuff like the nutrition labels on the side of your Lucky Charms. It pays for public schools, the military, police, fireman and a bunch of other stuff. What about the kinds of taxes we have to pay? Taxes come in all shapes and sizes. The ones that probably affect us the most are our federal and state income tax which is based on a percentage of money that you make. Generally, the more money you make the higher percentage of tax you have to pay. However, that’s not always the case as there are loopholes and secrets that people like Mitt Romney know about so that he doesn’t have to give away so much of his money to his colleagues. We also pay sales tax on just about every item we buy from the gallon of milk in your fridge to the pack of condoms in your bedside drawer. Finally there is property tax, which most of us millennials will probably never have to worry about, so let’s just move on. Ok here’s the big question. Why? Well paying taxes is our civic duty. Without it we would not be able to pay our politicians their salaries, or maintain an active military that is able to fight the wars on terrorism from the deserts of Nevada, or fund a public education system that is responsible for developing the young minds of our future. (U.S. Music Fade Out). Let’s not kid ourselves here, though. What’s the real reason? If you don’t pay up, agents dressed in black suits will come for you with loaded guns. If you resist you’ll be murdered. If you don’t, you’ll be locked away behind steel bars. Don’t forget Wesley Snipes. If they can capture a human vampire, they can get you too. Don’t take the red pill. Or is it the blue pill? I don’t remember. But you’re probably not the One, so just stay in the Matrix. So what about all those people, like Snipes, who say paying taxes is unconstitutional. Well their claims are kind of bullshit, unless they were living before Feb 3, 1913 when the 16 Amendment was passed which states, “The Congress shall have power to lay and collect taxes on incomes, from whatever source derived, without apportionment among the several States, and without regard to any census or enumeration.” So yeah, not illegal anymore. Ok so what’s the deal with all the tax protestors then? Most of their arguments come from the language of tax code. For example the 861 Argument used by some tax protestors, which interprets some of the tax code as making income tax invalid. However, this argument and pretty much all others have been held by courts as incorrect. In fact the IRS wrote a whole handbook about these kinds of protests. It’s called “The Truth About Frivolous Tax Arguments.” In it they go over common tax protestor arguments. For example, some say paying taxes is voluntary due to the language used in some of the law written. But the IRS says that what’s voluntary; is choosing whether to fill out the paperwork to determine your tax liability yourself or have the government do it for you. Also some say it’s against their belief system to pay taxes. Well, the IRS says that tax deductions are given to the charitable nature of religious institutions rather than what their beliefs are. It doesn’t matter what you believe as long as you either pay your taxes or give it to charities that are eligible for tax deductions.

Existentialism in 3 Minutes
A few months ago a subscriber suggested I make a video on existentialism, so here it is! Existentialism is a European philosophy from the mid 19th and 20th centuries, which attempts to answer the questions humans have attemped to ask and answer for thousands of years: what is the purpose of life. Many believe, due to mainstream thinking, that the existentialist believes there is no purpose to our lives, but that is actually wrong - they would say our purpose is to create and cultivate our purpose. If you liked the video please hit the thumbs up button and subscribe! 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/ Music: Artist - Rey. Song - Howl: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WlttLXkSklw Script: Existentialism is a European philosophy that began in the mid-19th and 20th centuries and became popular following the horrific years of WWII, when many began to doubt the traditional idea of a moral deity based on the terrifying atrocities committed during the war. The first philosopher to have actually identified as an existentialist is probably Jean-Paul Sartre who said that “what all existentialists have in common is the fundamental doctrine that existence precedes essence." What he means by this is that we are all born without any kind of collective purpose. We are born independent individuals rather than the labels, stereotypes, etc. that society or our family or whoever, decide to put on us. Our purpose or essence as Sartre describes is not what others place on to us, but instead ours to create through our own consciousness. The misconception here is that one might think they can define themselves as whatever they want, and thus be whatever they want. But the reality is that while we may believe we are of a certain essence, we are in fact defined by our actions, and are responsible for them. So if a person believes they are kind, but acts cruelly, the existentialist will then define that person by their act, as cruel. Sartre states that “man first of all exists, encounters himself, surges us in the world –and defines himself afterwards.” Another key idea in existentialism is the idea of the absurd. The absurd is the idea that the world is meaningless and in its meaninglessness the whole “bad things don’t happen to good people” flies out the window. In fact there is no such thing as a bad or good person or a bad or good situation. What happens, just simply happens. We are born into a world where our actions lack any coherent purpose, a world in which we are searching for meaning in a meaningless world. In contrast to what most of us think, Sartre believed that the amount of freedom we have is horrifying. The fact that the world is meaningless means that there are no guidelines or moral code to live by. The best thing to do he states is to live authentically. By this he means that one has to create him or herself based on their true self – rather than the external pressures of the world - and then live accordingly. In today’s world this might mean acting in opposition to the idea that we should grow up, go to college, find a good job, start a family, buy a house, send your kids to college, and then retire – something that many of us are often pressured to do by our society, teachers, parents, and even government. Again in existentialism only you can assign meaning to your life. The only wrong thing you can do is to live in-authentically, against your own essence.

The Truth about Pharmaceutical Drugs and the Medical Industry -  Part 1
Expert Panel Hosts: Robert Whitaker, Gabriel Cousens, Irving Kirsch, Gwen Olsen • Robert Whitaker - investigates how the influence of pharmaceutical money and guild interests has corrupted the behavior of the American Psychiatric Association and academic psychiatry during the past 35 years. He documents how the psychiatric establishment regularly misled the American public about what was known about the biology of mental disorders, the validity of psychiatric diagnoses, and the safety and efficacy of its drugs. He also looks at how these two corrupting influences encouraged the expansion of diagnostic boundaries and the creation of biased clinical practice guidelines. This corruption has led to significant social injury, and in particular, a societal lack of informed consent regarding the use of psychiatric drugs, and the pathologizing of normal behaviors in children and adults. Robert Whitaker argues that reforming psychiatry will require the neutralization of these two corrupting influences—pharmaceutical money and guild interests—and the establishment of multidisciplinary authority over the field of mental health. • Gabriel Cousens - Not all depressions are alike. And despite the attention given to Prozac and other drugs, there quite literally is no magic pill. Someone who suffers from depression needs a customized, individual program, one that attacks the personal, biochemical roots of the problem. Dr. Cousens shows how to heal depression safely by synergistically rebalancing what he calls "the natural drugs of the brain," using a five-step program of mood-boosting substances, vitamin and mineral supplements, and a mood-enhancing diet and lifestyle. Grounded in cutting-edge science, yet accessible and safe, he shows how to regain your optimism and energy through balancing your own biochemistry. • Irving Kirsch - Irving Kirsch has the world doubting the efficacy of antidepressants. Based on fifteen years of research he makes an overwhelming case that what the medical community considered a cornerstone of psychiatric treatment is little more than a faulty consensus. But Kirsch does more than just criticize: He offers a path society can follow to stop popping pills and start proper treatment. • Gwen Olsen - The United States health care system is killing Americans at an alarming rate, even though we spend over fifteen percent of the Gross National Product (GNP) on health care. According to the Journal of the American Medical Association, our health care outcomes ranked only fifteenth among twenty-five industrialized nations worldwide. Adverse effects from prescription drugs have become the third-leading killer of Americans. Only heart disease and cancer claim more lives. We trust our doctors to inform us and our government to protect us from medical malfeasance that may put profits ahead of consumer health and safety. But the fine line walked by the FDA between the interests of the pharmaceutical manufacturers and the American public has continually been crossed. The result is the unleashing of an unprecedented number of lethal drugs on the U.S. market!

Who Profits from the Opioid Crisis? Meet the Secretive Sackler Family Making Billions from OxyContin
https://democracynow.org - This week, President Donald Trump’s nominee for drug czar, Republican Congressmember Tom Marino, had to withdraw from consideration after a Washington Post/”60 Minutes” investigation found he led a drug industry-backed effort to pass a law that weakened the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration’s ability to crack down on addictive opioids. Meanwhile, calls are growing to look at the major pharmaceutical companies that have fueled the opioid crisis. A new investigation by Esquire magazine reveals how the secretive Sackler family, owners of the company that invented OxyContin, downplayed the risks of addiction and exploited doctors’ confusion over the drug’s strength. We speak with Christopher Glazek, the Esquire reporter behind the story.

Perfectionism in 3 Minutes
When you think of the word perfectionism, you might think of those you know (or maybe yourself) who are anal, OCD, and hard to work with. Perfectionism is when you aren't satisfied until every little detail is up to your standard of "perfect." The problem with this is that perfection is subjective, and our subjective judgment changes from day to day. So while something in your eyes may be perfect today, tomorrow you opinion could completely change. Thank you guys for watching! It's so awesome to see my subscriber base grow.

If you like using the internet then net neutrality is a big deal. Net neutrality is simply the idea that we should be able to use the internet without our internet service providers being able to regulate what we do on the internet. This may not seem like such a big deal, but without net neutrality our ISPs can block our access to websites they don't want us to visit or slow certain programs down which they don't want us to use.

Theranos, Elizabeth Holmes, and the Cult of Silicon Valley
Elizabeth Holmes became a Silicon Valley celebrity after she dropped out of Stanford at 19 to start a company called Theranos. We sat down with John Carreyrou, the Wall Street Journal reporter who unmasked Holmes. Subscribe to our YouTube channel: http://youtube.com/reasontv Like us on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/Reason.Magazine/ Follow us on Twitter: https://twitter.com/reason Subscribe to our podcast at iTunes: https://goo.gl/az3a7a Reason is the planet's leading source of news, politics, and culture from a libertarian perspective. Go to reason.com for a point of view you won't get from legacy media and old left-right opinion magazines. ---------------- [For full text, credits, and downloadable versions, go to https://reason.com/reasontv/2018/06/06/theranos-elizabeth-holmes-bad-blood] Elizabeth Holmes was everything Silicon Valley investors and the media could hope for: a brilliant, young female entrepreneur who dropped out of Stanford at 19 to start a company called Theranos. Established in 2003, Theranos promised to save people from pain and disease through early detection and lead the way into an era of cheaper, more consumer-driven health care. Holmes' big idea was to replace traditional venous blood draws in a doctor's office, hospital, or lab with simple finger pricks. One day, she said, patients would be able to do the tests at home and upload the results for their doctors. Holmes stacked her board of directors with heavyweights such as former and future cabinet members George Schultz, Henry Kissinger, and Gen. James Mattis. She held fundraisers for Hillary Clinton and cadged hundreds of millions of dollars from investors such as the Walmart heirs, Rupert Murdoch, and Betsy DeVos. For a time, her company was worth more than Spotify or Uber. Today, Theranos is on the verge of liquidation and its backers have seen their investments wiped out. Holmes may face charges. The man who looked closer at Theranos is John Carreyrou, a veteran investigative journalist at The Wall Street Journal. His dogged reporting revealed the tactics of flattery and intimidation that fooled Holmes' investors and the press, allowing her to keep up the deception for as long as she did. When Carreyrou's stories on Theranos started appearing in 2015, Holmes went on the offensive, depicting herself as a Silicon Valley disrupter who had become the target of a smear campaign orchestrated by established interests. Reason's Nick Gillespie sat down with Carreyrou to talk about his new book on Theranos, Bad Blood: Secrecy and Lies in a Silicon Valley Startup, which has made the New York Times bestseller list and will soon be made into a movie starring Jennifer Lawrence as Elizabeth Holmes. Bad Blood raises tough questions about regulators' failure to stop Theranos, the infatuation of the public and the press with the mystique of Silicon Valley, and the shadowlands where innovation, capitalism, and deception meet.

THIS Is What Happens In The 3rd Eye When We Smoke Cannabis…
THIS Is What Happens In The 3rd Eye When We Smoke Cannabis… The Pineal Gland or the ‘Seat of the Soul’ is the focal point of our spiritual guiding system which makes us go beyond the five senses of rationality and become multi sensory, tuned into and aware of higher dimensions of consciousness within a holographic cosmos. This gland located in the centre of the brain, it is about a quarter of an inch in size, reddish-gray, and weighs about one-tenth of a gram. While we are far from having a complete understanding of the complex network of chemical compounds that interact in the brain, we are beginning to build a simple map of how all these interrelated processes fit together. It is increasingly clear that the endocannabinoid system is a fundamentally important messaging system that helps to link together various parts of the brain, many of which work together to give us the subjective experience of being “high”. The pineal gland itself is crucial to this process, and has undeniable importance as a source of consciousness-altering compounds.

As unpleasant and potentially dangerous a belief in a conspiracy theory can be they do, for the most part, come from a natural human desire to find an explanation for what appears to be unexplainable. However, there are certain conspiracy theories that come from a much darker place.
