How learning sustainability is like learning sex

on February 22, 2021 in Education, Nature

My books and courses get stellar reviews because they teach how to lead and take initiative effectively—not through lecture but through practicing the basics and advancing as we improve, sometimes to mastery. We learn all performance-based fields that way—sports, dance, music, military, and so on. I approached coaching acting sustainably similarly. It hit me the other day that some things we don’t need structured learning for—things we love without any[…] Keep reading →

Do we need math and science after school?

on February 16, 2021 in Education, Nature

You might think with a physics degree I’d feel strongly that we should require students to learn a fair amount of math and science. I love the subjects and consider them as beautiful as any art or music, but until recently didn’t consider them beyond simple calculations important for most people. The pandemic and environment changed that view. The U.S. response to the pandemic exemplifies what happens when a nation[…] Keep reading →

Hear me on the Cybertraps podcast

on February 11, 2021 in Audio, Education, Habits, SIDCHAs

This episode started talking about sidchas and the episode one of the hosts did on my podcast, involving biking in minus 40 degree weather, but the meat of it was what traps us online and to devices, which also traps us polluting: people design everything to make us want more. First they promote craving, then ways to mollify the craving but that recreate the craving. They try to addict us.[…] Keep reading →

Population: Why not educate men on family planning?

on February 1, 2021 in Choosing/Decision-Making, Education, Nature

The more I learn about successful, non-coercive, voluntary family planning leading to more freedom, stability, and prosperity, the more I talk about it. Think the opposite of China’s One Child policy or whatever eugenics programs you’ve heard of. You don’t judge fire because it burned down a home. Any time family planning comes up, someone parrots, “we must educate women and girls! It’s the most effective way!” As far as[…] Keep reading →

Hear me again on the Ask Women podcast on seductive conversation

on January 31, 2021 in Audio, Education, Leadership, Relationships

You may remember from my post Hear me on the Ask Women podcast that I spoke about my coaching men on attraction and seduction for a few years as the #1 coach in the #1 market for the #1 guru. That post began describing that podcast: What do a female comic and a professional wing girl have in common? The realistically raw and hilarious perspectives on what women ACTUALLY want[…] Keep reading →

What “Educate women” means

on December 21, 2020 in Education, Nature

Even people who understand that overpopulation exacerbates every environmental problem refuse to see that lowering the population—which has been done successfully on national scales purely voluntarily, creating abundance and stability for all, as I spoke of here—can improve nearly every environmental problem. People mistakenly point out how birthrates are below replacement in many countries, including the US, missing that we promote population growth and immigration. Moving factories overseas doesn’t decrease[…] Keep reading →
