TEDx talk which shows people's obedience to "authority."

http://www.youtube.com

Scam School's Brian Brushwood does a TEDx talk wherein he covers a few studies showing people's ingrained obedience to perceived "authority."

Although it is presented from a magic and scam perspective, the studies he brings up are very telling, and representative of the difficulties we face in turning people away from blind obedience to "authority."

It's unfortunate, as relying on perceived "authorities" is likely an evolutionary development, and has benefits, however it is sadly so exploited by those who seek, or are already in, "power."

6 Harsh Truths That Will Make You a Better Person

http://www.cracked.com

For the rest of you, I want you to try something: Name five impressive things about yourself. Write them down or just shout them out loud to the room. But here's the catch -- you're not allowed to list anything you are (i.e., I'm a nice guy, I'm honest), but instead can only list things that you do (i.e., I just won a national chess tournament, I make the best chili in Massachusetts). If you found that difficult, well, this is for you, and you are going to fucking hate hearing it. My only defense is that this is what I wish somebody had said to me around 1995 or so.

Securing your luggage against theft when flying

http://www.youtube.com

The most effective way to secure your luggage against theft when flying on commerical airlines is to travel with a firearm. When flying with a firearm you are required to store it in a hard case with a lock to which ONLY YOU have a key. The TSA is prevented from both opening your luggage once sealed or marking it in any way to indicate contents. Watch the video for more detailed information. NOTE: If you are uncomfortable with firearms, the firearm you travel with does not have to be deadly (i.e. it can be a flare gun).

Libertarian 101: Aren't all politicians crooks?

http://www.examiner.com

I continue to receive defeatist attitudes about how to combat the Leviathan state. Many feel that we have a lawless political class and that there is absolutely no way to reign it in outside of complete revolution or bankruptcy. And admittedly neither are very good options, both would cause much pain to many people.

This is a dangerous meme that reflects exactly what the ruling class wants, complete disengagement from the political system by the most informed among us.
