Reaching The Limits Of Government Power

First of all this is a developing story. Even so, seems like people of all political stripes have about had it with the government. We’ll talk about it in Reaching-Limits-Of-Government-Power-Bob Davis Podcast 930.

Developing Story

Especially relevant? We don’t know all the details in the death of George Floyd at the hands of the Minneapolis Police.

Unprecedented Reaction

Even more riots are breaking out in the vicinity of the incident and across the metro. This has never happened before in Minneapolis and Saint Paul.

What’s The Pattern?

I see a pattern here. However I’m not sure others will appreciate it.

Feeling Our Fellow Citizens’ Pain

Above all some also will not appreciate the pain of the community where George Lloyd died recently.

Lock Down Protests

On the other hand protests against lock downs are still fresh, although these were orderly by comparison.

Tyranny?

In Minnesota residents of communities far from Minneapolis took to the streets to protest what they called tyranny.

Trump’s Rule By Fiat

Finally the president of the United States issued yet another executive order limiting 1st amendment rights for the big social media companies. Learn more in Reaching-Limits-Of-Government-Power-Bob Davis Podcast 930.

All In One Basket

Most importantly some will not agree with me putting all government over reach into one basket. But I think it works for this podcast. Whether it’s police, presidents, governors or mayors, people have about had it.

Incompetency, Arrogance and Danger Of Government Abuse Of Power

To clarify, I do it to draw attention to the increasing incompetency and arrogance of all our governments. It’s certainly been a theme in these podcasts.

No One Likes It

In conclusion, we’re all suffering.

No one likes shut downs.

We all feel it when any citizens are mistreated.

Self Inflicted Economic Catastrophe

Further, the whole country is suffering from a self inflicted economic catastrophe.

Riot and Carrying AR-15’s

In addition we can argue about whether people should riot, or carry AR-15’s to a protest at the capitol.

What’s undeniable? Apparently a lot of people are furious at the government. They’ve definitely got their reasons.

Word to the Wise

Certainly so called elected representatives and public servants better figure it out. And soon.

Winter Is Here…Already

I think it’s time to talk about a more reflective season. Winter is here in Minnesota. Even though it’s only Veterans Day, it’s winter. More time spent reading, streaming TV and more. We’ll talk about it in Human-Nature-Progress-Random-Thoughts-Bob Davis Podcast 875.

Two Recent Podcasts Highlighted

First of all I have to start with a review of my two recent podcasts with Congressman Tom Emmer. You can listen to them here and here. At one point in posting content on social media, I mentioned those two podcasts would be impossible on the radio today.

Mission Of The Bob Davis Podcasts

Moreover it reminds of me the mission of the Bob Davis Podcasts these days. Especially relevant is the need to say, and say again, I am not driven by wanting to be in a specific political or social construct.

Biggest Problem In Media Today

In addition it is necessary for me to say not only do I not want to be a ‘this or that’, I think the biggest problem in media today is most of the commentators, reporters, and so called analysts seem to need and want to come from a partisan perspective.

Some People Need Acceptance…Apparently

I think it is the wanting, even more the need to be accepted by some group. Learn more in Human-Nature-Progress-Random-Thoughts-Bob Davis Podcast 875.

Playing To The Crowd

Furthermore playing to an audience adds to the problem.

Say What We Want To Hear

Audiences expect content creators to say certain things. To defend or attack to shore up expectations. To say what they want to hear.

Not My Mission

Of course this is not my mission. My mission is to progress. To be decidedly unpredictable. To refuse a side. Ask questions. Advance the story. Artists progress, sometimes to the dismay of their audiences. Think Picasso, or even Elton John’s changes in style critics did not necessarily liike.

Don’t Follow. Lead!

Sometimes you have to lead the audience.

Human Progress?

I also thought a lot recently about human consciousness. Whether we are making progress. You hear a lot of talk these days about how much progress human beings are supposedly making.

You’ll have to listen to the podcast to get an idea of what I think.

Confusion

Finally the question of the progress of human consciousness leads me to wonder how we got where we are today. So much confusion about who’s right and wrong, what direction works, failing institutions and new ideas.

From Podcasts To The Wreck Of The Edmund Fitzgerald In This Podcast

Therefore it is a fitting random discussion that takes us from recent podcasts to The Wreck Of The Edmund Fitzgerald, the role of artists, and more.

I had a lot of fun with this one.

Agorafest’s Alternative Lifestyles

As the pillars of western society seem to fail these days, should we consider an alternative lifestyle? Learn more in Life-Anarchy-Agorafest’s-Nik Ludwig-Bob Davis Podcast 864.

Conversation And Life

I think this conversation is especially relevant at this time. It’s also the second podcast from Agorafest 2019.

Chaos

When I look out at the social and political landscape it seems more and more like chaos.

Completely Out Of The Box With Nik Ludwig

What’s useful about this conversation are the thought starters. In a world of mediocrity it’s good to think ‘out of the box’ sometimes.

Free Markets and Anarchy?

Above all we get a needed definition of anarchy and Agorism. Truly free markets in a decentralized structure.

No Rules

Because anarchy avoids rules, rule making and rulers, it spawns interesting new ideas.

A Decentral Future

As the centralized institutions flounder I wonder whether decentralization is the future.

Listen, Then Judge

Give Life-Anarchy-Agorafest’s-Nik Ludwig-Bob Davis Podcast 864 a listen and see what you think.

Violent Political Speech

Moreover Agora Fest avoids what anarchists call ‘Violent Political Speech‘. Due to this we get into deeper and rewarding conversations.

Individuals

Along those lines Nik and I talk about what true individualism entails.

Fear The Herd

Most noteworthy is the question of whether we run with the herd or strike out on our own.

The Road Less Traveled

Today many people have begun living the nomad lifestyle in old RV‘s, School Buses and Vans. I wonder whether more will take the road less traveled.

Predictable Until It Isn’t

People say Anarchy is chaos. And our current political landscape is calm and ordered? In addition one thing I have learned about life is, it is predictable right up until the moment it isn’t.

And Some Fun

Finally we have a lot of fun in this podcast. We talk about Keto Diets. We touch on mythology and classic art and more.
