Please enjoy this recent episode of the Seeds of Liberty Podcast. This week we were joined by Ben Stone, better known as the Bad Quaker, who owns BadQuaker.com and is a frequent co-host of the Freedom Feens Radio Show. Herein be discussed the possible repercussions of catching an agent of government on a “bad day”, the definition of the Backfire Effect, the use of Socratic questioning, government trolls, putting the brakes on in an internet “debate” when the other party completely eschews logic, having the Backfire Effect used against you, understanding that you are often debating indoctrination and not the individual, how the need for freedom can become just as strong as the need for air, poking the beast, using peaceful parenting in conjunction with present day activism, how technology moves faster than the speed of government, the distortion of history, doing activism your way, the rise of the anarcho-capitalistas in Brazil and Cuba, keeping people from getting discouraged, getting it “right” vs. throwing a tin roof up on a “nothing”, going around the State, and more!
The human understanding when it has once adopted an opinion draws all things else to support and agree with it. And though there be a greater number and weight of instances to be found on the other side, yet these it either neglects and despises, or else-by some distinction sets aside and rejects, in order that by this great and pernicious predetermination the authority of its former conclusion may remain inviolate.
