I often think about how legacy news is normalized as authoritative despite many of its gross errors and it’s probably, at least in part, due to associations with other perceived “authoritative” institutions, businesses and traits. For instance, Freud believed we associate height with authority. I think he was right. Many times I’ve met people in person and they’d say, “you’re so much shorter than I’d envisioned!” So, do we associate airports with authority? Are they hubs for corporate media propaganda? And...Why the heck is CNBC the brand of the snack shop?!
Just got back from butchering chickens. I watched the Russel Brand “censored” videos on the way (YouTube removed one of his videos for saying something positive about ivermectin). I’d like your feedback on it all as I prepare a video.
When your 2-year old helps butcher chickens. 😬 Jack stayed far away so as not to be confused for poultry as well…But hey, now we have a freezer stocked with the fruits of our friends’ labor.
Comedian and homesteader Owen Benjamin is my guest Monday. He has been banned from most Big Tech platforms but was also banned by Rokfin a couple months ago. The link to my interview with Rokfin's founder is below. Owen first made his "mark" on the censorship scene when his talent agency dropped him for criticizing gender reassignment work on children. This was several years ago before it was the hotly debated topic it is today. Any questions for Owen?
