Stefan Molyneux banned from youtube

Post by manfred »

Stefan Molyneux is a historian who posted many long talks on youtube, and had over a million followers. I would not agree with all he said but he had a way to make you think and look at things in different ways.

Sadly he had been banned for "hate speech", another "cancelled" person. Youtube will soon become nothing more that a collection of clips about kittens and people falling off skateboards.

This is the video that caused the "cancellation" without warning. A follower reposted it, please watch it while you are still able to;

I think it is a very thought provoking piece:



It is called "the story of your enslavement", arguing how we all are slaves in a way.

Few years ago I did watch one of his YT clips & found him employee the same tactics used by people like trump, FoxNews, many politicians & other demagogues. Use phrases & words which proven to evoke emotions - thus provoke EMOTIONAL reactions. Than watch those gullible & the useful idiots respond as "ripe fruits fall off the tree right in your lap".

Comparing humans to farm animals - refer to them as "producing entities" is not a thought provoking - rather a call for destruction of all those social & intellectual values which made us the "sapiens" so successful.

This idiot used to be an ultra-liberal & believed in communities & collaboration until one day - much like Iyn Rand - he found out that preaching Libertarian ideology devoid of human conscience, morals, compassion & emotions - is much more profitable than another be just Socialist in the crowd.

His theory directly smacks into those elements - collaboration, work in groups & cooperation with others as Dan Harari in his Book "Sapiens" has articulated so beautifully as the main factor leading us to the crest of human development. Not selfishness & narcissism.

What distinguished us from farm animals? We have conscience, morals, compassion & emotions. Group species in marked in our DNA - not loner ones.

The funny part is - with his theory in fact, it is he is one who tries to enslave his viewers thoughts & emotions to follow his Waco Libertarian ideology - not our own.

Since he keeps talking about humans as a source of profit, lead me to be convinced that he posts all his YT clips to make money - rather then educate or expanse human knowledge. Therefore I found that his videos are not "profitable" for me to invest, neither the time no the desire to watch his Videos. Since I can't make money on him - nor get milk from his clips - I chose to treat him as one with an intellect of a domestic animal. :lol:

And yet, hombre, in an odd sort of way, you proved my point. He got a reaction from you, and you thought about what he said. It is always the people who you disagree with the most that make you think the most.
