  2. How I Tricked My Brain To Like Doing Hard Things (dopamine detox)

    You probably don’t have a problem playing video games or browsing social media on your phone. In fact I have no doubt you could sit in front of a screen and do both of those activities for 2 hours, or even longer without breaking your concentration. But what about half an hour of studying? That might be too hard. How about working on your side business for another hour? Doesn’t sound too appealing.

    Even though you logically know that studying, exercising, building a business or something equally productive, will bring you more benefits in the long run, you still prefer watching TV, playing video games and scrolling through social media.

    One might argue that it’s obvious why. One activity is easy and doesn’t require much effort, while the other activity is difficult and it requires you to apply yourself.

    But some people seem to have no problem studying, exercising, or working on their side projects, regularly.

    Which begs the question: Why are some people more motivated to tackle difficult things? And is there a way to make doing difficult things, easy?

  3. Is the Criminal Justice System Racist? A Soho Forum Debate

    The Washington Post’s Radley Balko vs. the Manhattan Institute’s Rafael Mangual on whether "there is overwhelming evidence that the criminal justice system is racist." —— Subscribe to our YouTube channel: https://www.youtube.com/ReasonTV?sub_… Like us on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/Reason.Magazine Follow us on Twitter: https://twitter.com/reason ——- "There is overwhelming evidence that the criminal justice system is racist."

    That was the resolution of an online Soho Forum debate held on Wednesday, June 24, 2020. It featured The Washington Post’s Radley Balko and the Manhattan Institute’s Rafael Mangual. The debate was moderated by Soho Forum Director Gene Epstein.

    Arguing that America’s criminal justice system is, in fact, racist was Radley Balko, an opinion writer for The Washington Post. A former editor at Reason, Balko is also the author of Rise of the Warrior Cop and co-author of The Cadaver King and the Country Dentist.

    Defending America’s criminal justice against the charge of racism was Rafael Mangual, the deputy director of legal policy at the Manhattan Insitute, who is also a contributing editor for City Journal. Mangual’s writing has appeared in The Wall Street Journal, The Atlantic, the New York Post, the Boston Herald, and The Philadelphia Inquirer.

  4. The Mikhaila Peterson Podcast #9 - Jordan B. Peterson - Family Update June 2020

    Welcome to the Mikhaila Peterson Podcast, episode 9. This is a brief podcast with my dad Jordan Peterson about what happened to him and my family in the last year.

    The following are links that may help elucidate some of the topics we discussed in this episode:

    Paradoxical reaction to benzodiazepines – a condition dad was diagnosed with https://www.acep.org/how-we-serve/sections/toxicology/news/july-2017/paradoxical-reactions-to-benzodiazepines-who-gets-them-and-why/ - Akathisia - something dad really really really suffered from - https://w-bad.org/akathisia/ - “Many medical professionals don’t recognize akathisia or that it’s a drug-induced state. Instead, they write off the symptoms as a “worsening of mental illness” or other condition. Sometimes they even raise the dose of the offending drug and when the patient’s condition worsens as a result, they may prescribe more medication which can sometimes further exacerbate the problem or that fail to offer relief. If the medical professionals you encounter are ignorant about akathisia or attempt to blame it on “something else”, present them with medical information on the condition or search until you find a knowledgeable physician.” - Catatonia and benzo withdrawal - https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/8835707/ - Suicidality and benzodiazepines - https://…
