A juxtaposition, take your pic:
Which would you choose…if nobody was looking or listening in?
I gave a talk in the summer of 2019 in Warsaw, Poland on this very subject.
Now, do you want to hear the after-interview?
Alright, that’s about it.
…The principal problem now is that very many people no longer have to truly face the consequences of their own ideas and In the last year and counting the general problem with the entire Western world has become obvious. My alter ego:
I have never for a second thought anyone was doing anything but signalling their virtue to others.
That’s the global pandemic.
We live in a world that is competing to signal their virtue to everyone else, with those who want to signal their victimization to everyone else.
It’s all pathetic laziness, dishonesty, and outright lying and often, fraud.
…One more thing. I look awful in that summer of 2019. I had been living at 4,500 feet for 3 cold and dark winters in the Sierras, going through a divorce, etc. It’s nearly 2 years later and I’ve been living in Thailand for the last 18 months, built a house, which I had never actually done before—remodel only—and I snapped this just now.
How about that?
I’m just getting started.
Active lifestyle, good food, sun, beach, swim, sleep with a far younger woman, and shoulder all the responsibility. In my case, that’s taking on 12 and 11 year old Thai girls who in 15 months have never said 1 single cross word to me. I love and adore them the most. Like a man.
I tolerate no bullshit, zero excuses. You ought demand the same of yourself.
