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.

No-Small-Talk-Agorafest-2019-Bob Davis Podcast 863

No Small Talk

I’ve never been good at small talk. These days conversation is safe. Sports. Weather. Don’t discuss religion or politics at party. Above all there’s one group where the reverse is true. Learn more in No-Small-Talk-Agorafest-2019-Bob Davis Podcast 863.

Live In South Dakota

I am live in Mobile Podcast Command in Gary South Dakota at the Buffalo Ridge Resort. It’s especially relevant that I am hanging with my anarchist friends at a little festival they put together called ‘Agorafest‘. And Buffalo Ridge is a great place to have it.

Ongoing Conversations

In contrast to pointless weekend conversation I come to Agorafest for the discussions about everything from home brewing to the meaning of life. In this podcast subscribers and listeners will get a little taste of our style of conversation.

Let’s Face It. Anarchy is Fun!

For political listeners most noteworthy is the question what is an anarchist? Moreover what brand of anarchism is the primary focus this weekend?

Anderson, Johnson and Davis

First of all to give you an idea of our fireside chats Cole Anderson and Mark Johnson join the podcast.

Life Is Suffering. Or Not!

Above all Mark and I have been debating whether life is suffering all weekend. That debate continues in this podcast, with some asides about home brewing and politics. How’s that for small talk?

Agorafest Stays With You

Certainly you’ll hear anarchy isn’t as threatening as some people think. Indeed maybe you’ll hear something you’ll think about weeks from now. That’s usually the case with me.

History

Even more most of us feel we’re at a turning point in history. That deserves more than small talk.

Talk It Out As Friends

It’s great when people with very different ideas about how the world works to come together, hash it out and still be friends.

Community

Everyone probably agrees that affecting change in your own community is more satisfying. Therefore learning how to do that constructively is a byproduct of these weekends.

Trumpers-Think-Political-Polls-Lie-Bob Davis Podcast 862

Republicans Hate Polls…Unless They Show Trump In The Lead

There’s so much bias these days on every media platform there’s no trust. A conversation with a republican friend lead to this podcast about whether polls lie. Find out more by listening to Trumpers-Think-Political-Polls-Lie-Bob Davis Podcast 862.

Who Did The Poll?

First of all when it comes to polling, the first question a republican will ask is, “Who did the poll”. Especially if it reflects poorly on the president. In addition their second favorite response is, “No One Called Me”. Gah!

What Poll Will You Accept?

In contrast I wonder, “What poll would you accept?“.

Polling Explained. Again.

It’s time again to explain polling and the potential for a republican win or loss in 2020.

No bias or predictions. Just the lay of the land.

Accept and Consider Information Challenging Your Position

Above all political true believers reject any poll that doesn’t show their guy winning. Even more, political analysis requires accepting and considering information that challenges you.

Approval Ratings 101

In Trumpers-Think-Political-Polls-Lie-Bob Davis Podcast 862 front and center are approval ratings and their ability to predict winners.

Past Elections

Moreover I’ll look at how you can use polls to make solid judgements. I’ll also talk about the history of past elections as a tool.

Polls Don’t Lie … The Media Lies

Not only do I reject the assertion the polls “lie”. When averaged they can be quite predictive.

Unfortunately the wholesale ignorance of polling in our media is especially relevant. For Example, while the polls in 2016 showed a close race for president, they never predicted a Clinton win.

Trump Struggles In The Battleground States

Finally at issue are tracking polls showing the president’s approval rating in battleground states plummeting. With manufacturing reportedly in recession in Wisconsin and Michigan, republican bosses are concerned. They should be. Trump has to win the battleground states to win a second term.

A Republican Siding With The UAW?

Perhaps it is for that reason that the president is rumored to want to intervene in a current GM strike, in favor of the UAW.

History And No Judgements

Therefore this podcast is valuable because it looks at chances for both a landslide as well as a tough race, without judgements and predictions. There’s a lot of information here about past presidential races, the history of polling and approval ratings. It might come in handy.
