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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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/

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?

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.

Pharma outlook 2030: From evolution to revolution
We believe that pharmaceutical revenues will fall well short of forecasts, as current projections, as well as business and operating models, do not reflect the turbulence in the marketplace. Two seismic shifts are impacting the industry: the need to demonstrate value from therapies; and the move from treatment to prevention, diagnostics and cure, all of which is bringing in a host of new competitors. To rise to this challenge, executive teams need to choose which of the following three ‘archetypes’ they want their organization to become: 1. Active pharmaceutical portfolio company 2. Virtual value chain orchestrator 3. Pharmaceutical niche specialist Those pharmaceutical companies that manage to embrace the most appropriate archetypes, and master disruption, have the greatest chance to deliver real value to patients and be successful in the new, disrupted world.

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.

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.

Are You a Racist or a Perceptionist?
Jamie Foxx explains the difference between a racist and a "perceptionist" on the Joe Rogan Podcast. Most importantly he makes the distinction between the idea that many liberals believe that all people who voted for Trump are racists when the reality is that many are just "perceptionists." A perceptionist is someone who has deeply ingrained beliefs about the way certain people are. We are all victims of perception. And i believe that one of life's tasks is to become aware of this bias that blinds all of us into thinking things are the way we think they are because of our deep and often unconscious beliefs. Somewhere in our individual histories we "learn" stuff that the world "teaches" us. A lot of this stuff is wrong and we end up being ignorant our whole lives. In this way it's up to us to unlearn what we've "learned." In this case Jamie shows us that even though we know that there are good black pilots out there, we still hold the perception that a silver foxed white man is more trustworthy as a good pilot than a black man. Obviously the truth can only be known if we look at each pilot's experience and flight history. But this is almost always overlooked. And I'm sure there will be plenty of examples of this in the comment section below :).

Aspirin and Prostaglandins
Aspirin, or acetylsalicylic acid, is one of the oldest and most well-known medications for headaches, fever, pain, and even prevention of heart attack and stroke. How does this drug cause relief of these symptoms? Check out this episode of Medicurio to learn about the quite interesting mechanism of aspirin in the body. Detailed Mechanism of Aspirin: There are two major forms of cyclooxygenase (COX) in cells. COX-1 is always made in the cell, while COX-2 is only made during inflammation. Aspirin permanently inhibits the COX-1 isoform (version) by acetylation of its active site. Therefore, aspirin’s effect lasts however long it takes for the cell to transcribe and translate new COX-1 enzymes, which usually takes a few hours. COX-1 decreases fever, pain, and inflammation, but also increases the risk of gastric ulcers by decreasing clotting and stomach mucous production. The COX-2 isoform is thought to only produce prostaglandins involved in fever, pain, and inflammation but not other functions; therefore, making a drug that inhibits COX-2 instead of COX-1 would give all the anti-inflammatory effects of aspirin without the risk of gastric ulcers. Such a drug would be a major upgrade and many companies came up with possible COX-2 inhibitors. One such drug, called rofecoxib or Vioxx, entered the market claiming that it would not cause gastric ulcers. What the drug company did not reveal was that during clinical trials, many patients suffered from heart attacks after chronic use. These problems began to surface once the general public began using Vioxx, leading to withdrawal of the drug and lawsuits against the company. Moral of the story? Research integrity is important, especially for a drug company as people’s lives are at stake. Trivia about Aspirin: It is debated if Felix Hoffmann was the true “inventor” of aspirin. Arthur Eichengrün, a fellow Bayer employee, claimed that he was the one who came up with the procedure and that Hoffmann simply performed the reaction following his guidelines. Bayer has denied this claim. Hoffmann synthesized aspirin for his father, who complained about the taste of salicylic acid that he was taking to treat his arthritis. Aspirin is extremely toxic to cats (which cannot break down aspirin) and to a lesser extent, dogs. Despite this, aspirin can still be used, just at low doses, to treat inflammation in animals. You can overdose on aspirin – at lethal doses, aspirin interferes with energy production in the mitochondria which leads to eventual death. Before death, unique symptoms such as ringing in the ears, hyperventilation, and dizziness, as well as non-specific symptoms such as vomiting and nausea appear. Overdoses are often due to chronic aspirin use, so if any of these symptoms apply to you, speak to a doctor immediately. Aspirin’s effect is increased by ingesting it with caffeine because caffeine is a stimulant, which increases blood flow to carry aspirin around the body faster and begin acting on tissue quicker. Acetaminophen (Tylenol) is not technically an NSAID because it does not decrease inflammation; however, it also works on COX enzymes so I have lumped it with the other NSAIDs in this video for simplicity.

The Case Against Common Core
On March 27, 2015 Dr. Duke Pesta spoke on the dangers of Common Core. No doubt one of the most outspoken critic of the Common Core State Standards, Dr. Pesta exposes the origins and dangers of the Common Core scheme. Through his and other's efforts, people are beginning to fight back on behalf of their children. From this video, you will learn why our local school districts are so secretive, all about the government's overreach, its concealment and outright lies that drive Common Core. Throughout his presentation, Dr. Pesta discusses the current state of the fight, identifies new threats -- including the coming Science and History standards -- and updates us on many state's efforts to remove Common Core. With over 350 talks in 40 states behind him, he offers his perspective on the best ways to push back against this ploy to manipulate the heart and minds of our children. Speaker Bio: Dr. Duke Pesta Freedom Project Education Academic Director Dr. Duke Pesta received his M.A. in Renaissance Literature from John Carroll University and his Ph.D. in Shakespeare and Renaissance Literature from Purdue University. He has taught at major research institutions and small liberal arts colleges and currently is a professor of English at the University of Wisconsin, Oshkosh and the Academic Director of Freedom Project Education.

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.

This is the first documentary to tackle this issue from a UK-perspective and explains the inner workings of Central Banks and the Money creation process. When money drives almost all activity on the planet, it's essential that we understand it. Yet simple questions often get overlooked, questions like; where does money come from? Who creates it? Who decides how it gets used? And what does this mean for the millions of ordinary people who suffer when the monetary, and financial system, breaks down? A film by Michael Oswald, Produced by Mike Horwath, featuring Ben Dyson of Positive Money, Josh Ryan-Collins of The New Economics Foundation, Ann Pettifor, the "HBOS Whistleblower" Paul Moore, Simon Dixon of Bank to the Future and Nick Dearden from the Jubliee Debt Campaign.

Illegal Immigration in 303 Seconds
Illegal immigration is controversial. But as you know, this isn't surprising. Since the very beginning, immigration has been a contested issue in the U.S. That fact is however, that we are a nation of immigrants. And immigrants today, whether legal or illegal, whether you like them or not, provide our country with much more than just those jobs that some of you think they took away. -- 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: Intro Music: Phoniks - Got to My Head Background Music: Joakim Karud - Love Mode -- Sources: The stories of several DACA recipients: https://www.nilc.org/issues/daca/daca-fifth-anniversary-stories/ 12 million undocumented immigrants, 1 million DACA recipients: http://www.pewresearch.org/fact-tank/2017/04/27/5-facts-about-illegal-immigration-in-the-u-s/ 4 million children born by undocumented immigrants: http://www.pewhispanic.org/2010/08/11/unauthorized-immigrants-and-their-us-born-children/ Denunciation of Muslim immigrants: https://immigration.procon.org/view.timeline.php?timelineID=000023 Why immigrants come to the U.S.: - https://www.americanimmigrationcouncil.org/research/no-childhood-here-why-central-american-children-are-fleeing-their-homes#.U7StyKQ0DXc.twitter - https://www.aeaweb.org/atypon.php?doi=10.1257/aer.89.5.1337 - https://www.cgdev.org/publication/violence-development-and-migration-waves-evidence-central-american-child-migrant - https://wol.iza.org/articles/enforcement-and-illegal-migration/long Americans say immigrants destroy American jobs: http://library.cqpress.com/cqresearcher/document.php?id=cqresrre2012030900 Undocumented immigrants pay more taxes than the cost of services they use: - https://www.cbo.gov/sites/default/files/110th-congress-2007-2008/reports/12-6-immigration.pdf - https://itep.org/immigration/ Why undocumented immigrants pay taxes: http://money.cnn.com/2017/04/19/news/economy/undocumented-immigrant-taxes/index.html U.S. economy would slow without undocumented immigrants: http://giovanniperi.ucdavis.edu/uploads/5/6/8/2/56826033/ageoftrump_june2017.pdf#page=70 Less undocumented immigrants commit crimes than Americans do: http://www.nber.org/papers/w13229.pdf Sanctuary cities are not more dangerous than non-sanctuary cities: http://journals.sagepub.com/doi/10.1177/1078087417704974

The Biggest Con Job in World History - Wall Street!
Sponsored by http://thebitcoinrotator.com. I seen a series of videos originally shared by http://www.youtube.com/user/peoplestandupca and what I seen was a real eye opener. The fat cats of Wall Street don't give a s*$%! about people, they just care about that stuff on paper that was created basically out of thin air. Right from the creation of the Federal Reserve in 1913, the fat cats and banking elites have plagued human society, and need to be dealt with! If you would rather see the video in smaller chunks, you can see them on peoplestandupca's channel. I just stitched them together to make it more seamless and easy to watch. Full credit to peoplestandupca for providing such an eye-opening series of videos. It is good to see others out there that are willing to explore con jobs like this in such depth and detail.

Big Pharma - Those Conspiracy Guys - Podcast Episode
On this episode of Those Conspiracy Guys we gargle the hardest pill to swallow in the war for the health of our planet and discuss the murky and insanely diverse machinations of health industry; one of the most inaccessible and necessary institutions on the planet, but it has been corrupt by the force we know as Big Pharma. From earliest doctors and ancient medicines, human have tried to cure ailments both in the body and the mind. From cataract surgery being done over 2500 years ago to caesarian sections being done in the jungles of Africa in the 18th century the medical industry has come a long way to what we know it as today Outdated medical practices have made way for a more clinical and science based approach to curing physical human maladies. The older remedies though had the cause of the disease at the heart of the treatment, where new cures tend not to be a fix for the disease, but merely a treatment of the symptom. The blame for this may lie at the feet of the owners of the big pharmaceutical companies who, through nefarious wartime shenanigans, managed to bankrupt German drug producers to make drugs used predominantly required during war time and made billions, and still make billions Treatment and mis diagnosis go hand in hand in todays medical treatment landscape. ADHD and pain medications are routinely used and abused by patients and are woefully oversubscribed by doctors the world over. Over use of antibiotics and heavy treatments for small ailments now leave humanity itself at risk. The opioid and amphetamine epidemic that is raging in the US at the moment is alleged to be the fault of the over prescribing doctors but drug seeking behaviour and reliance on illegal drugs after prescriptions run out is causing detrimental damage to small towns all across America. Opiates especially Fentanyl are causing overdoses in the thousands per year and little is being done about its availability Price gauging on essential medical supplies is also one of the sins of Big Pharma and characters like Martin Skreli have been held as pharmaceutical neoliberal pariahs in the recent past. But insurance companies acquiescing to this behaviour and congress failing to act to quell these massive price hikes are failures rarely mentioned in news reports. We also look at alternative medicine and natural remedies that were totally fine for human beings for thousands of years and have only recently been replaced by chemical synthetics. Herbs and plants and ancient methods of healing have been regarded as hocus pocus but a modern cynicism for Big Pharma is pushing people back towards this magical thinking when talking about health.

Net Neutrality in 7 Minutes
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. And today net neutrality is in great risk.

The FDA and the Pharmaceutical Industry
Carpenter, author of Reputation and Power:Organizational Image and Pharmaceutical Regulation at the FDA will join us to discuss the FDA and the pharmaceutical industry. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration is the most powerful regulatory agency in the world. How did the FDA become so influential? And how exactly does it wield its extraordinary power? Carpenter traces the history of FDA regulation of pharmaceuticals, revealing how the agency's organizational reputation has been the primary source of its power, yet also one of its ultimate constraints. Sponsored by the USC Bedrosian Center as part of it's on-going Governance Salons. Daniel Carpenter is Allie S. Freed Professor of Government and Director of the Center for American Political Studies in the Faculty of Arts and Sciences at Harvard University. For the 2011-2012 academic year, he is a Walter Channing Cabot Faculty Fellow at Harvard, and a visiting researcher at the Institut d'Études Politiques at the Université de Strasbourg in France. He graduated from Georgetown University in 1989 with distinction in Honors Government and received his doctorate in political science from the University of Chicago in 1996. He taught previously at Princeton University (1995-1998) and the University of Michigan (1998-2002). He joined the Harvard University faculty in 2002. Dr. Carpenter mixes theoretical, historical, statistical and mathematical analyses to examine the development of political institutions, particularly in the United States. He focuses upon public bureaucracies and government regulation, particularly regulation of health and financial products. His dissertation received the 1998 Harold D. Lasswell Award from the American Political Science Association and as a book - The Forging of Bureaucratic Autonomy: Reputations, Networks and Policy Innovation in Executive Agencies, 1862-1928 (Princeton: Princeton University Press, 2001) - was awarded the APSA's Gladys Kammerer Prize as well as the Charles Levine Prize of the International Political Science Association. His recently published book on pharmaceutical regulation in the United States is entitled Reputation and Power: Organizational Image and Pharmaceutical Regulation at the FDA (Princeton: Princeton University Press, 2010), and has received the 2011 Allan Sharlin Memorial Award from the Social Science History Association. Professor Carpenter has held fellowships from the John Simon Guggenheim Foundation, the Radcliffe Institute for Advanced Study, the Center for Advanced Study in the Behavioral Sciences, the Brookings Institution and the Santa Fe Institute. He has received grants from the National Endowment for the Humanities, the National Science Foundation, the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation (Scholars in Health Policy 1998-2000, Investigator Award in Health Policy Research 2004-2007), the Alfred Sloan Foundation, the Russell Sage Foundation and the Safra Center for Ethics. In the past few years, Professor Carpenter is the winner of both the 2011 Herbert Simon Award of the Midwest Political Science Association for a scholar "who has made a significant career contribution to the scientific study of bureaucracy", as well as the 2011 David Collier Award of the American Political Science Association for career contributions to qualitative and multi-method research. In addition to his ongoing teaching and scholarship on the political economy of government regulation and health, Professor Carpenter has recently launched a long-term project on petitioning in North American political development, examining comparisons and connections to petitioning histories in Europe and India. He hopes to draw upon the millions of petitions in local, state and federal archives to create an educational, genealogical and scholarly resource for citizens, students and scholars.
