  • Hey Ben, I thought the video was insightful, but two things I thought when watching it: - This topic has been absolutely milked dry by everyone on the internet so I’m less interested than I would’ve been - The B-roll was a little like drinking from a fire hose, too much to keep track of visually

Now I can have access to all of your continuous knowledge, and you will still thank me for helping you. You just continue to give, and that is a beautiful thing.

  • Totally believe this, church is particularly good at it with its “ soldiers of Christ” vs “The enemy” motif. Funny how “The enemy” ALWAYS possesses politicians on the opposing side and “obeying gods will” is always voting for yours.

  • Scarcity is a great psychology trick. The shelves (atleast where I live) are still intentionally left half empty. It leads to impulsive buying as if I dont take the last 2 on the shelf someone else will and "who knows" when they will have more in stock. It gets you in the mindset of hoarding.

  • 2200 children die every single day from diarrhea. 5.2 million children die every single year. Due to lockdowns from COVID 121 million could face malnutrition and starvations leading to a predicted 12,000 deaths every day where 10,000 deaths/day from COVID was the max. We seriously have our priorities messed up. Its not about saving lives its about control.

  • Eeh, too bad that the kind of people who profited most from this are those hi-freq traders armed with trading bots/AI , not the retail trader and all the randos with abysmal peanut robin hood phone app. also, the 9 million people in wsb now aren't the same 1 million from early these year, so... god knows what they actually want now.
