Long Summary

In this episode, we begin with reflections on portraying a Balinese fisherman in a play, delving into the challenges of creating a giant artificial fish. The conversation smoothly transitions to discussing the significance of Mother's Day and the importance of expressing gratitude towards maternal figures. We explore the impact of maternal love on individuals and society, touching on relational dynamics, gender roles, and evolving societal beliefs. Emphasizing the need for positive influences to maintain mental well-being, we delve into topics such as numerology, relationship choices, and societal perceptions, encouraging introspection, gratitude, and seeking healthy influences for personal growth.

Moving forward, we tackle the complexities of societal norms and behaviors related to leftist ideologies and marriage dynamics. We analyze how leftist influences can impact views on marriage and relationships, shedding light on the role of ideologies in shaping societal structures. The conversation expands to touch on attitudes towards professions like prostitution and their effects on relationship dynamics, weaving in cultural references like the Eurovision Song Contest for a unique perspective on intertwined topics.

The discussion shifts towards exploring the impact of music lyrics on cognitive responses, introducing a novel titled "The Present" and an AI chatbot for peaceful parenting. We emphasize the importance of addressing sensitive parenting topics with empathy, promoting constructive dialogues within families and communities. Strategies provided by the Peaceful Parenting AI aim to encourage positive behaviors in children through understanding and dialogue, highlighting the value of audience feedback to enhance effectiveness.

Further into the conversation, we offer strategies for navigating challenging situations, such as dealing with a child with an inebriated parent or addressing bullying at school. Recommendations include fostering respectful dialogues, seeking common ground, and advocating for change while modeling peaceful parenting in public settings. Arguments against punitive parenting practices like letting children cry it out or infant circumcision underscore the importance of empathy, understanding developmental stages, and respecting bodily autonomy, advocating for teaching opportunities and non-violent resolutions. Practical tips for teaching road safety and addressing parental views on biblically justified spanking culminate in a discussion on peaceful parenting principles, challenges, and the moral responsibilities of parents in fostering healthy family dynamics. The episode concludes with a call for support through donations to sustain valuable resources dedicated to the podcast's mission.

[0:00] Introduction to Bali Adventures

[0:00] Good morning, everybody. Welcome to your 11th of May, 2024, Sunday morning love fest of the frontal lobes. Good morning from Bali. Ooh, that's nice. You know, believe it or not, I've never been to Bali. I've heard it's beautiful and the pictures look lovely, but I once played a Balinese fisherman in a play, and my job was to seduce a tourist by offering her a giant fish. And with my then-girlfriend, we stayed up all night creating a giant artificial fish, which the director said sucked and also simultaneously blew chunks at the same time. So I ended up having to do the play every night as a Balinese fisherman. I had a whole mating dance. It was really quite vivid. And I had to offer her a floppy fish that was fresh from the market every night. So that's my connection with Bali that I played many years ago, a Balinese fisherman in a play. So there we go. All right. Because, you know, I mean, obviously I was completely typecast as rugged Balinese fisherman guy. I mean, that's just every second rule.

[1:17] All right. So let's get to your comments. Did you eat it after? No, no. No, I really did not. Not only did I not eat it, like the only way you can eat fish is to not handle fish. Right, so I mean, I used to go summers to Ireland to visit my relatives. I remember crossing the North Sea or the gap between England and Ireland, just this boiling, you know, green sea. Green sea is never good. Green sea, boiling, towering waves, thundering into the side of the tugboat, half tugboat that we were in. and I remember these just giant walls of water. Nature is, apparently Neptune is a jealous god because the worst water is always green. And so we'd get there, and we did a lot of fishing. We did a lot of fishing, and I was taught how to gut the fish. You know, it does look like, you know, because the fish, they have the trout in particular, they have this kind of glassy eye that stares at you, you know, like those Egyptian, you know, where they have the profile, but then the eye is looking straight at you, that's kind of like the hurt, right?

[2:27] So we would go fishing, we'd get some fish, I'd gut it and clean it, and then it was a little tough to eat. It's the same thing with the duck eggs, you know. I mean, I like eggs, no problem with the eggs. And yet, I have trouble eating the duck eggs. Thank you for the donation, Adam, that's very, very kind, and I really, really do appreciate that. Let me throw in just here, if you want to join, like I was just saying in the pre-show, we're going to do this general chat with everyone wonderful wonderful stuff and then we're going to go donor only and i'm going to unveil a very cool new project it's going to be very exciting for you and we'll get a chance to take it for a test run with your input so we'll get to that but we're just going to do that if you want to join that convo you can of course if you guys can blast this out um just say like new just james and jared if you can just blast this out as well and say a new project unveiling in like 45 minutes or something like that. New project unveiling in 45 minutes. Join us for that. So, all right.

[3:34] Let's see here. Let's get to your questions. Happy Sunday. Zimpf. Hello, Ovi. Hello, Paula. Nice to see you. Good morning. Good morning, everybody. Now, you'll remember. You'll remember. If you care about your mama, give your mama a call, give her a Skype, give her a chat, give her a video, send an e-card, do something, write something personal. If your mother means something to you, please, please, please, it's Mother's Day. And you know, the good mothers of the world give a lot to their families, give a lot to their families. One of our friends was just out of the blue, just sort of burst out to my wife, like, you are the nicest person around. And it is kind of true. She is. She's so nice. I just occasionally feel like a bad guy. She's so nice, so thoughtful, always thinking of us, always making the world better for her family and her friends, and it's a beautiful thing to see. And if you got a great mom, you got a good mom, you got a mom you care about, it just means the world for a, you know, just make her cry. You know, like, tell her how much she means to you. Be honest. Don't bear false witness. Don't bear false witness. And if you care about people and you don't tell them, you're a liar. You're a liar stealing from the joy of the world. You are a thief of happiness. If you care about people.

[5:00] Please tell them. Don't assume everyone takes it for granted. You know, I think I model that. I mean, I really, really care about you guys as an audience, and I hope that that comes across every show I try to tell you. I mean, I remind myself to tell you, and I believe that.

[5:20] So, yeah, please, a donation for peaceful parenting. Well, thank you. I don't see it, but I appreciate the thought. So yeah don't don't withhold from people how much you care about them and how much they mean to you you know you don't you don't get rewards for hoarding your heart right it just dies on you you know your heart is fed with generosity and if you are not generous in your feelings with those around you and you tell them how much they mean to you and how much you care about them, your heart slowly fades in isolation. Your heart is fed by expression, it's fed by attachment, it's fed by generosity. And if you starve your heart, it doesn't get abs, it just expires in your chest.

[6:11] And if you did not have a good mother, I sympathize. I understand that a little. I really do sympathize. And the commitment then is to get a great mother for your kids. That's my approach.

[6:29] All right. So happy Mother's Day. To all the great mothers out there, you are the absolute foundation and bedrock of civilization. You are the conduit and the path through which cultural values of excellence pass from generation to generation and you are doing absolutely the greatest work in the universe by having and nurturing and loving the next generation.

[6:55] So thank you, thank you. The level of creativity that mere men possess is always secondary to the power of life that women possess, right? Because the primary requirement for creativity is being alive. And women are those who bring us to life, keep us alive, and fill our hearts with joy when they're great mothers. It's the greatest job in the world with the greatest impact on the world. The hand that rocks the cradle rules the world. And for the women who love men, love children, nurture life, treasure life, Respect life. You are the most wonderful and beautiful creatures in the world. You really are. I mean, I don't thank my mother for how she raised me, but I will always thank my mother for the gift of life. My mother had a stillborn child right before me, and the fact that she stepped up again and decided to create life again, I am immensely, immensely grateful for. The gift of life comes through the female.

[8:12] And the gift of love for men comes through the female. And what women bring to the world with their sensitivity, their caring, their absolute caring, is really the most incandescent and beautiful thing in the universe. A woman's attachment and love, thoughtfulness and caring is beautiful. Now, a man's protection and provision, this is also beautiful as well. So I'm not trying to elevate women to goddess status, but although I live with two females, as you know, who are about as perfect a pair of people as I can conceivably imagine. And men are defined by our love of women, and women are defined by our love of men. Men. You've noticed that the concepts of male and female have been erased along with the need that has been propagandized out of people for male and female. So women are told, you don't need no stinking man, they're all patriarchs and rapists and exploiters and selfish and mean and stupid. So you take away women's respect for and treasure of and love for men, and the concept of femininity.

[9:34] Is now virtually erased. And the same thing for men. You take away men's capacity to respect and love a woman, but they're all selfish witches and predatory and false accusations and paternity fraud. You just take the worst conceivable aspects of dysfunctional women, spread that out to femininity as a whole, and that kills our capacity for love. And the reason that your capacity for love is killed by propaganda is so that propaganda can spread you know propaganda all programming festus most in isolation like you know these these cults what do they do they separate if you separate you from everyone around you.

[10:26] And that way you don't have the social feedback that keeps you sane you know one of the things that is really really important like one of the things that has happened to us as a species and it happens to all social species right we are dogs not cats we're social animals so when you are a social animal, what you do is our brains outsource massive areas of our sanity to other people, right? Like we don't have eyes on the sides of our heads. We don't have eyes on the front and back of our heads. We don't have the fly's eyes with this virtual 360 thing. We have eyes on the front of our heads. Why? Because we are social hunters. So we hunt in packs and And therefore, other people can watch our backs, right? I got your back. I got you watching your back. Watch my six or six being like behind six o'clock, right? Ask your parents if you're young. So we outsource our vision to our brothers, right? We can't see much on the side, a bit peripheral, but we certainly can't see anything behind us.

[11:39] Why do we not have eyes in the back of our head? Because our brothers and sisters are eyes that look behind us. They are the eyes in the back of our head. So we get 360 vision socially, and we get sanity socially. If you're surrounded with sane people, you will be sane. If you're surrounded by crazy people, you will go crazy. Which is why I've always made the case that if you're surrounded by corrupt and crazy people, you should absolutely try and find a group of sane, happy, and healthy people so that you can achieve sanity. If you live in complete isolation, you'll go crazy. You'll go crazy. There's a line that has often struck me from the Sting album, Soul Cages. are looked at across the river today. Anyway, he's got a line.

[12:43] They go crazy in congregations. We only get better one by one. Now, I used to think that that was like, well, you know, the mob mind, we go crazy in congregations, but individualism has us become sane. And I have a slightly more tempered view of that. I wouldn't say I've evolved or it's more nuanced because that's just priming you for the newer argument being better. But we go crazy in congregations. We only get better one by one. So it's a very deep line. He sounds like a complete a-hole as a person, but he's a pretty good lyricist.

[13:22] But no, we don't... Biologically, we don't get sanity from solitude. And we've evolved that way. We've evolved that way, that we brainstorm, we process reality with regards to other people. Like, you know, that scene from A Beautiful Mind, where Russell Crowe plays this Nash guy who's kind of crazy. Someone comes to talk to him, and he goes to someone else and says, do you see that person? It's just a figment of my imagination, my hallucination. Do you see that person? Right, so we become sane, or stay sane, In aggregate, we are only a part of the mind called sanity.

[14:14] That is how we've evolved. It's sort of like in marriage, there's this sort of joke, you know, that what you do is you upload your life to your wife's cloud brain, right? And it's true, right? Whenever I need to book something, it's like, honey, do we have anything going on? Because, you know, she keeps the whole social thing, which is quite considerable. She keeps the whole social thing in her head and keeps all that stuff juggling. So I upload my social life to the cloud called Wife, and given the size of her hairdo, that's actually quite appropriate. And I took a picture of my wife and daughter hiking the other day. I showed it to my wife, and her hair is out past her shoulders, and she's like, why do you let me go out of the house like that? And so you can dwarf the bushes, so you can dwarf the shrubs. so.

[15:13] It is important to have good, sane, healthy people around you and to be one of those good, sane, healthy people because in conversation we developed language so we could have sanity we developed language so we could have accuracy, we developed language so we could cross-check our perceptions with those of others in order to stay in reality and it's been, you know, a tough slog to get human beings to stay in reality because society is as likely to in fact more likely to drag you into insanity rather than reinforce you to sanity right which is why social media has made people both much crazier and much saner the sanity gap is the greatest gap right.

[15:59] The financial gap, the class gap is not important. The racial gap is not particularly important. The male-female gap is not particularly important. But the sanity gap, where people dive into social media to reinforce their craziness and surround themselves with insane people and thus go madder and madder and madder and can't turn back. Like, you understand, that's the two separate worlds. The people who are on social media to reinforce reality and the people who are on social media to reinforce unreality, right? That is the gap. And when that gap gets too big, war or civil war or violent conflict becomes a very high probability.

[16:44] And to isolate the crazy people from the sane people, like, you know the way it works, right? If you've escaped crazy people, you don't want to go back. Like, you barely got out, right? It's like, why would you break out of prison in order to break into prison, like prison break style, right? So why would you want to do that? So the crazy people just drift off in their own bubbles, in their own cysts, in their own islands, but moving among us, right?

[17:11] The Importance of Surrounding Yourself with Sane People

[17:12] And they reinforce the crazy, And the purpose of propaganda is to create in you landmines to any approaching sanity. You recoil, you attack, right? Somebody comes to you with verifiable facts, with objective facts, and you are just programmed to recoil and attack. And in order to defend the insanity, the ill health, the unreality that is going on in people's minds. And this is, right, we understand this, right? You can see these groups just moving apart. You can actually see graphs, you can see charts, you can see all of this, just people. The crazy people are getting crazier, and the sane people are getting saner.

[17:54] I've obviously tried to bridge this gap as much as possible, but there's only so much we can do, because free will, right? Because just free will.

[18:14] All right. Hello, Steph. We are live. Steph, have you noticed the rise of young kids getting into numerology? I have not, because I don't know any young kids getting into numerology. In fact, most of the young kids would consider that extremely bad. Extremely bad. Speaking of maintaining your capacity to love, says someone, I've decided to spare myself the suffering of dating a woman with borderline personality disorder. Well, that's great news, And I really appreciate that because I was thinking about that from the Friday show. I hope she goes to therapy and gets better. She knows what she has to do. In the meanwhile, I'll be looking for a woman more of my own value. Yes. Yes. You cannot love a woman into sanity any more than you can give poor people money and have them become wealthy.

[19:05] Steph, why are leftist women okay with prostitutes, yet have an issue, hate, and anger for passport bros, lol, because they say those women are prostitutes are easy, lol, makes no sense. Well, no. See, when people, I'm sorry to be annoying, but when people say makes no sense, you know, like, could it be any crazier? This is such a contradiction. This makes no sense at all.

[19:30] I mean, sorry, I know you're being kind of tongue-in-cheek, but when most people do it, It's blindingly lazy. It's like these medieval physicists are like, well, the rock falls. The rock falls, but the balloon goes up. I mean, that's crazy. That makes no sense at all. You know, things fall out of the sky, but clouds stay in the sky. It makes no sense at all. I mean, the moon is dark, and the sun is bright. So they're not. But it's just an interesting puzzle to solve. It's not something that makes no sense at all. It's just something where you have to find the pattern, right, that goes together, right? Like everyone believed that the bowling ball and the orange, that the bowling ball would fall faster. And then Galileo went up the Tower of Pisa, if I remember it rightly, and dropped them both. And people are like, oh, my God, this makes no sense. One's heavier, one's lighter, but they both fall at the same rate. This makes no sense. Okay, it doesn't make sense because you haven't thought about it enough. Right? So makes no sense is a conclusion that people are just crazy, but cunning like a fox. Crazy like a fox, right? So crazy like a fox is a phrase that I thought on a lot as a kid. Foxes were important to me because there's a sour grapes, which is the fox, and then there's crazy like a fox. Crazy, crazy like a fox. Okay, where does that come from? Let's have a look.

[20:59] Basically like a fox. Where does that come from?

[21:04] Where do it come from? So it means seemingly foolish. If you say that someone is crazy like a fox, it means that their behavior appears to be insane or nonsensical at first glance, but there's actually something very clever and subtle to it that's working towards their interest in an unexpected way. So where does it come from? According to TDF, it, quote, gained currency when humorist S.G. Perelman used it as the title of a book in 1944.

[21:39] Wild foxes are chiefly associated with rabies, frothing at the mouth, probably from children's scare stories, with some truth in it. Hence, imaginably old mad dog may be an allusion to that much. Okay, now let's see here. 1907 it started crazy like a fox, we got one from 1876 crazy as a fox, mad foxes, ok but what behavior does it come from, with regards to what valpine behavior crazy as a fox Fox might refer to one tactic for which foxes are renowned while being hunted involves circling back to their own earlier trail and running backwards in it for a while to throw their pursuers off the scent, or at any rate into confusion. A reporter alludes to this trick in The Cuban Situation, an article, January 11, 1896.

[22:49] All right. Okay, so it doubles back on its trail, then chooses a different unexpected direction to flee. The fox has created a whole bunch of misdirected commotion to its own great benefit. Okay, so it looks like. So Crazy Like a Fox. Crazy Like a Fox was something that I thought of a lot as a kid. Obviously, I had to because I grew up with an extremely mentally ill and disturbed and crazy, quote, crazy mother. Other so when you say lol makes no sense blah blah blah right um it it they're crazy like a fox so makes no sense so why leftist women okay with prostitutes yet have an issue hate and anger for passport bros because they say those women are prostitutes are easy lol right well i mean it's it's the kind of thing where you know body shaming lizzo is totally wrong, but body shaming Elon Musk is just funny and okay right I mean it makes no sense it's like well no but it makes perfect sense when you understand the principles behind it.

[23:58] So, leftist women are propagandized and tasked with the production of producing not babies, but other single women, right? So, they are propagandized machinery for producing other single women, right? So, you don't get babies, but you get to produce other single women. That is the entire purpose of leftist women, is to punish any sign of genuine attractiveness in a woman, and to reward any dysfunction that is going to lead a woman to be undateable, unmarriable. Right? You follow? So, leftist women hate marriage, right? Because for political power, right? Because, what is it, in America, leftist single women vote plus 37% Democrat. I mean, they're the biggest, the single biggest base of the Democrat party. And the reason why the Democrat party has political viability is because of single women, right? So, I mean, they know which side of the bread their butter is or should be buttered. And so they know, they know. So the purpose of leftism is to produce single women. So if you understand that, then...

[25:17] Their enemy is marriage. Now, do prostitutes, does praise for prostitutes help or harm a marriage? Well, obviously it harms marriage on two levels. Prostitutes probably won't get married or their marriages won't be stable, number one. And number two, prostitutes destabilize marriage because if men have the outlet of going to prostitutes, then they won't necessarily work on the issues that they have with their wives. So you understand that, right? So that's anti-marriage stuff, right? Now, why do they have hate and anger for passport bros? Because passport bros go and get married.

[25:56] And when passport bros go and get married, it tells women that men do want to get married, and that might provoke women or inspire women to become the kind of women that men want to marry without going to Thailand. Because if they say, oh, men are just hound dogs. They never want to get married. They just want to use women for sex, blah, blah, blah, blah, blah. So a passport bro who goes and finds a bride overseas obviously wants to get married. So that breaks that whole narrative. And then the possibility of getting married is raised for women. And of course he might come back with a woman who's married from another country or another culture. I mean, let's say he goes to Vietnam, gets married and comes back with a Vietnamese wife. Well, she's going to be pretty based in anti-communist and anti-leftist just because it's like half an ex-communist country. So, yeah, so this makes sense, right? You understand? The purpose of leftist women is to breed not babies, but single women, right?

[26:52] Understanding the Purpose of Leftist Women

[26:52] And this is why they're targeted with all of this anti-male propaganda and girl power and career and blah, blah, blah, blah, blah, right?

[27:00] And I saw this, it was pretty funny. Obviously it's too far, I get that, but it was still pretty funny, right? He said, like if women, you want to understand how most men view your careers? You want to understand how most men view, I'm not endorsing this, I just thought it was funny, right? So you want to understand how most men view most of your careers, you know? If you're a mom and your kid comes up with a teacup and it's got a packet of ketchup, some water, a couple of boogers, and half a cracker in it, and he's like, mommy, I made you soup. And you're like, because you're a nice mom, you're like, oh, that's lovely. And you give it a sniff and you say, I'm quite full right now, but we'll just sort of put that aside for later. It's a great line in the Dungeons and Dragons movie with the still creepy Hugh Grant from many years ago. when the woman uses her magic to stir his tea and heat it up. She's like, oh, just put that aside for later. That's sort of the British thing, right? So your kid comes to you with this like booger in a cup with half a cracker in a ketchup packet. And you're like, I made you soup, mommy. And you're like, oh, that's nice. I'll just, you know, let's just put that aside for later. And it's, you know, the thought is nice and so on, but you know, you obviously not gonna drink it, right? And he said, so that's, you know, when you come and you say, I got this career, this is how men view it. Like you're coming to them with a cup of ketchup and water and half a cracker. It's like, oh, that's nice, I guess. But, you know, it's not what we're there for, right?

[28:23] So, all right. Yeah, so it's not a double standard, right? It's not a double standard to say gravity. In gravity, you know, things fall down, but birds fly up. Like, that's just, you can't make sense of that. You can't make it like that. That's just a double standard. It's like, it's not a double standard. It. You just need to understand things more deeply. Sorry to be annoying. I know it's an annoying thing to say. And again, I know you're kind of half tongue in cheek, but try, try not to, um, try not to promote confusion where there is in fact clarity.

[29:02] Right. Try. Okay. Somebody says I've been in solitude my whole adult life and I'm perfectly sane. No, you're not. No, you're not. There's no such thing as perfectly sane, particularly the culture that we live in. I mean, you're not perfectly sane. I'm not perfectly sane. In fact, you've just, I'm afraid you've just done a little bit to confirm my thesis. Now, if you want to call in and talk about it, call in at freedomain.com, but no, you're not perfectly sane. You're not, it's not possible. All right. Um, let's get to your messages. Ah, let's see here. Yeah, don't say LOL, double standards, LOL, that's crazy, like it's not. It's not crazy at all. Yeah, I mean, if it doesn't make sense, then you haven't thought about it enough. And it's fine, you don't have to think about everything enough, right? But don't spread that it's LOL confusing or they're just crazy or anything like that, right? That's just not true. It's just not true.

[30:15] All right. What is your life path? Well, straight to heaven or straight to hell, apparently. I have to push back. Free will is not a thing. That's great. That's funny. I have to push back. Free will is not a thing.

[30:42] That's absolutely beautiful. And I don't mean this in any negative way at all. That is beautifully consistent. I have no choice but to push back. I have to push back. I have no choice but to push back because free will is not a thing. It's not a thing. We are not free from the consequences of choice. What we have is agency. We can choose our actions, but the result is not our choice.

[31:08] Who has ever defined free will as freedom from consequences? I don't understand that. Are you trying to say that we don't have free will unless we're free to escape the consequences of smoking? We just don't have free will. That if, we can't both smoke and escape emphysema and lung cancer, then we don't have free will. I don't understand that. That is such a creative and insightful way to think about getting the response. That makes no sense. Yeah, that makes no sense is an insult to, because here's the thing, right? If people genuinely don't make sense, then they're completely contradictory and crazy. But if the left is gaining power and ascending and, you know, has taken over most of the major institutions, how can you call them crazy? Then you've lost to literally insane people. And partly the reason you've lost if you called them crazy like they're not crazy like a fox all right somebody says i've been slowly pulling away from a childhood friend she has been working on becoming a witch and studying all types of stuff i'm not into i made two attempts to help her discuss her newfound religion what are your thoughts so um hit me why if you've been following the hellscape of the eurovision song contest have you been following the hellscape of the Eurovision Song Contest.

[32:37] There's, from Ireland, so when I was a kid, I literally remember this song. Save all your kisses for me, save all your kisses for me. Bye bye baby, bye bye. So long baby, so long. Save all your kisses for me. And then, you think it's a song, right? And then at the end, like for a lover or whatever, right? And then it says at the end, And save all your kisses for me, even though you're only three, right? That's the, uh, so that was, that was when I was a kid. That was the Eurovision Song Contest. I also remember a great joke about Italy has lost the Eurovision Song Contest with the song I Can't Get No Contraception after the Pope advised them to pull it out at the last minute. That is a multi-layered fantastic joke. Although not as, and this is a trigger warning, not as multi-layered as the joke from hell that I heard the other day. Right the joke from hell that i heard uh the other day and it was something like, oh gosh how did it go it just had layer after layer that just got worse and worse and worse i don't think i even bookmarked it because it was so bad let me see if i can uh let me see if i can find it um.

[34:05] I want to get all the, all the layers of it, uh no no no no uh was it on I'm trying to remember the platform I don't want to do the joke injustice neither do I want to keep it just for myself.

[34:36] Anyway, it was something about, you know, sex and there's nothing wrong with sex. No, no, I'm going to wait till I get it properly. Thank you for the tip. I appreciate that. So, yeah, I mean, there's this woman named Barbie Thug who's in her 30s and skinny as a rail and she is a witch. And it's completely demonic, like sings in a pentagram. And this is Ireland. And so I watched, I sort of gritted my teeth and watched the video. And it's like okay so if there's a layer of hell below billy eilish she's way below that it's a, barbie thug and she's got a shaved headed demonic dancer with gray skin and horns and like all kinds of crazy stuff and so this is the irish and she's got a song called um depression blue or something like i remember what it's called and yeah it's straight up like absolutely skinny as a rail, stick insect demonic summoning screaming uh it's it's i mean absolutely horrendous stuff so i i'm just i go watch the video uh this was last night i go watch the video.

[35:41] And i'm like i have to skip around in it because it's just it's like i don't want that stuff in my head it feels like almost like it's a portal to hell it literally is a portal to hell in my mind right i'm sorry i have to i'm literally addicted to the word literally i'm sorry i have a teenager in the house it just happens literally so i gotta you know i gotta i'm gonna have to tase myself to train myself out of it and so i go watch this video and it's you know straight up devil worship demonic horrendous stuff designed to spread um again this is part of the leftist i don't know if she's a leftist but she said she's severely dissociated of course she is right and i can't imagine her childhood would have been hell on on a stick but this is just a woman training other women to be undateable unmarriable and unright so this is just part of producing more single women right there's a single woman factory that is in in the west right it all the way from education to movies to higher education to music it's all just single women single women single women right it's got to be single woman right and so when i talked to many years ago it took me a while to understand this when i wrote what was considered for a time the worst tweet in twitter history which i'm actually not even perversely proud of i'm just genuinely proud of that but um when i was talking about uh when toly swift was turning 30 it was like five or six years ago. I wrote a tweet which was something like, wow, I can't believe Taylor Swift is turning 30. She looks so young.

[37:01] It's so strange to think that 90% of her eggs are gone by this age. I hope she decides to become a mom. I think she'd be a great parent. I think she'd be a fun parent.

[37:12] Now that goes against the production of single women, because that has women panic. 90% of my eggs are gone, right? And it has them panic about the passage of time and maybe settle down. And women who are married with children vote conservative, and women who are unmarried vote leftist or liberal.

[37:31] Interference with the Conveyor of Production

[37:31] So of course, the reason why that was so explosive was because I was interfering with the conveyor about production of single women that is necessary for hard leftists to stay in power so anyway i went to watch this video from barbie thug and you know this kind of like antonym name stuff right barbie thug bing hitler and else so and and i looked at the um i looked at the comments and you know where you have to just because i don't spend time around dysfunctional people right so you know when you have to just kind of grit your teeth and say okay i'm gonna have to dip my hand and this acid in order to grab some knowledge, right? I'm going to have to strap the visor of pain on to look at the current soullessness of humanity. So I looked at the comments, and I'm like, oh, this is so cool. Oh, I've watched this video 10 times. Kudos on Ireland, which is, you know, a very religious and Catholic country, or at least was.

[38:26] Kudos on Ireland for producing such edgy, creative, you know, they're really pushing the envelope. Thank God this isn't just like stupid, generic bubble pop, and people were just like mad with praise. For this, to me at least, my opinion, obviously mentally ill, half demonic woman who is dragging others down to this level of dysfunction. Or not dragging, but inspiring other people down this road. So she's been working on becoming a witch.

[38:58] Yeah. Right. So why is she studying to become a witch? Right. So, witches are women who make imaginary boyfriends because they're undateable, and they also, because they are desperate, they also come up with love potions and witchy ways in which you can get a man to be attracted to you, right? Right. So, I mean, there are some dysfunctional women who marry religious icons, right. In a sense, right. Uh, you know, it's, it's, I can't compete with Jesus kind of thing. Jesus is perfect. My husband is, is only mortal or whatever. So there are some women who bond with fantasy, um, who, who bond with let's, no, sorry, I shouldn't say fantasy. There are some women who bond with non-corporeal personalities. Let's just put it that way. Right. right? And then that's tough, right? And because then you bond with perfection and everything else looks imperfect. Like if you look at too many beautiful women, then a normal looking woman looks ugly. Like if all you eat is sugar, food that's just normal tastes bland and bad, right? So you have to be very, very careful in life not to overstimulate your senses on a regular basis, right? You listen to music too loud, you lose your hearing, right? And you have to be very, very careful to not overstimulate your senses. Otherwise you lose the Aristotelian mean of that, that which is good for you, right?

[40:26] So she's a witch because she can't find a real man to love her, so she's inventing or she is bonding with non-corporeal male figures, I guess like Satan, right? So it's absolutely terrible. And she's going straight to the human hell of mental illness, right? All right.

[40:54] I read Dr. Laura's work. The number one thing men do to mess up their lives, rescuing damsels in distress, just gets you a distressed damsel, right? Well, that's just, men don't have a desire to rescue damsels in distress. They just have a desire to have sex, and they want the shortcut of a dysfunctional woman who will give them sex quickly, and then they think they'll save her, which you want, right? Leftist women attract men who lie to them and dip, and then they grow old and bitter.

[41:21] No, that's not true. No, that's not true. Leftist women are produced by state-sponsored ideology in the mental prisons of government schools, right? Are you saying you don't know any young feminists? You don't know any feminists in their teens or like the really like anti-male misanthropic women? I mean, you think they're just produced after 40, that they're all very pro-men when they're younger, but they just tragically get lied to, or they attract, no, they are embittered, and it's tragic, right? It's tragic. It's tragic. This is why the big lie works. The big lie works because the stakes get so high, right? So if you're a child, I don't know if you went through this experience, but if you're a child, or in particular teen, a teenager, right, generally when it happens, You're a teenager, and you just get this vague sense that everyone in authority is kind of lying to you about everything. Like, that's the big lie, right? Everyone in authority is kind of lying to me about everything.

[42:30] That's the big lie. That's a lot for people to process. Because that is to risk ostracism from the entire tribe. Like, so we evolved in tribes, right? So we fear ostracism from the tribe because it's genetic death, right? It could be physical death too. So we tend, we can accept small lies like the law. You know, they say the law is a strange net that, it's a strange net that traps tiny fish and that's all the big fish go, right? So the idea that everyone's lying to you about everything, thing.

[43:03] Like, you know, the teachers who say, oh, taxation is the price we pay to live in a civilized society. It's like, okay, we get it. Your salary is paid through taxation. I get it. I get it. But let's not pretend there's some sort of ideology at play here. Like, let's not, let's not get crazy about that kind of stuff, because that's just not really the case at all, right? So yeah they don't grow old and bitter because men lie to them. There is a distinction between passport bros and sex tourism. Yeah yeah.

[43:40] Misconceptions About Leftist Women

[43:40] This is why feminists hate the idea of sex robots as much as funny as it is. All right.

[43:57] Ah yes i did read the article uh from i did read the article that lauren southern had about her issues with trad life, yeah i don't think it was trad life that found her anyway okay so let's see here modern version mom i ordered you breakfast from the food app with her money yeah i guess but at At least she gets something she can eat, right?

[44:33] Steph detonated. Yeah, yeah, with the Taylor Swift tweet. Yeah, yeah, for sure. Well, you know, Barbie Thug, you know, I mean, hey, call in at freedomain.com. But, I mean, this is a woman who's severely wounded. Right? It's severely wounded, and she's severely wounded, and, nobody's like, oh, she's so cool, she's so edgy, and it's like, if that's not a cry for help, I mean, maybe she's beyond help, I don't know, right? I don't know her, but... Yeah, it was pretty hard to watch that Eurovision contest. Yes, it was. Music stuff brings so much rampant degeneracy. Yeah, so music, I mean, people, they sing the lyrics, they repeat the lyrics, it just, it carves things into your brain. The lyrics that you repeat carve things into your brain. is a form of programming. So music is very much, has always been part of programming and totalitarianism.

[45:43] Have you ever seen The Roast of Bob Saget? That's also, that's a window to hell. The Roast of Bob Saget is a window to hell. Switzerland won, yeah.

[46:04] When you say Barbie, it keeps reminding me of that girl who said, Cash me outside, how about that? I'm Dr. Phil. Yeah, yeah, I mean, one of the Jersey girls also got a novel published. So, that's where we are.

[46:23] One of the dudes from our university class has said that Ireland should have won with the performance. It didn't take him for that far gone, since the uni we go to is one of the most, if not the most conservative and traditional ones in our country. Right, so, I don't know this guy, obviously, but I would imagine that what he's doing is he's broadcasting to women, I have no standards. I have no standards, no morals. So come in here with your seductive scissor vagina and snip the balls of my standards off. Right he's just he's just advertising for low-rent women to ride him like a cowgirl right so, yeah the images of Bambi Thug are really unsettling of course right of course, woo woo witchy woman yeah yeah there's a song we're trying to talk about some serious stuff here but yes there is a song about a witchy woman good for you wow good for you, Yeah, that experience is how I got here, sitting in class one day and thinking, shit, right, right.

[47:40] How about Lindsay Stirling? I don't know who that is. Is that the woman who kicks high while she plays the violin? Seems like a good violinist.

[47:56] Just a side note to my witch friend. She flipped out on me because I didn't believe her when she said her powers can tell her what her future is and what good things are in store for her. I told her I don't believe in unicorns. Right so i mean the downside of believing that your future is set in stone is that you don't have any ability to create it about the dude at my uni there were no women present at the time man is like 36 years old we were having a night out with the men from our class at a cabin though i suppose he'll probably be signaling it to the ladies as well i imagine you somebody says i can I can only imagine the type of abuse that quote witch had as a child. Yeah, I mean, I'm not saying this about her. I don't know her history. But I did know a woman who was sex trafficked by her own father as a child. I mean, there is some real hell stuff out there.

[48:50] Lindsay Stirling is the equivalent of Rachel in your novel. The present. She chose a career instead of having kids and her sister is a drag wife. Oh, isn't that interesting? Isn't that interesting? Yeah, I actually had, oh gosh, what was it? On Friday, it's Sunday now. So two days ago, my good friend, Dr. Duke Pester, literature professor of many decades experience. So we've reviewed some fantastic literature over the course of our time together. We've done Dickens, Dostoevsky, we've done Shakespeare, we've done C.S. Lewis, we've done some truth about Satan and Jesus. We've done some amazing deep stuff. And so he read my novel, The Present, And we did about an hour 20 on my novel and what it means.

[49:39] And it was a wild conversation. It was a wild conversation and, um, loved the man to death.

[49:46] Analyzing the Novel "The Present"

[49:46] Really, really appreciated his feedback, but he grilled me hard on my relationship to Christianity and he was right to do so. And that's absolutely fair. But it was, as you can imagine, a smidge unsettling. which is I mean given the nature of the book that I wrote absolutely right and fair but it was very very cool it was like when I did um after I uh the death of my father um I did a show, uh with uh the pastor who was grilling me on the death of my father and forgiveness and all that kind of stuff.

[50:22] It was great. It was great. I really do appreciate those sort of scalding, penetrating questions. It was just great. Did you see the famous Hollywood movie director that got exposed for trying to sleep with underage girls? He directed Kindergarten Cop. Yeah, yeah. Is Duke Pest's analysis of the present published? No, but I'm going to go donor only in a few minutes and I'll give you. Jesse Lee Peterson? Yeah, Jesse Lee Peterson is an absolute force of base nature. He really is. It's just an absolute force of base nature and a man of substantial integrity and courage and someone to be admired, to me. So, the present... No, I'll kick out the link to the video, to people who... Let me give you... I'm going to go in a minute or two here. I'm going to show you the new project.

[51:16] I'll show you guys the new project, which I think is going to be... Well, I don't know. Now, I don't think it's going to be fantastic. I know it is. Fantastic. Fantastic stuff. All right, let me just get you the link here so that you can get a hold of what we're doing in a few minutes. Interesting to see how mad people can get at Jesse. Yeah, I mean, he's like Mr. Socrates, right? And there's a very powerful thing, and I've used this in the business world, right? Explain it to me like I'm three years old. Explain it to me like I'm five years old, right? You should be able to do that. Because a lot of people use this hyper-verbose baffle gab to pretend to be smart, right? To exclude you from the process of thinking by layering you with language that is hard to comprehend, right? And one of the things that hugely influenced me, and I can't remember who said it, but somebody pointed out that Socrates used the common language, he used the average language, he did not use epistemology, he did not use the words metaphysics, He did not use the words, you know, any of these kinds of stuff.

[52:26] So yeah, The Truth About Sin was a great show that we did together. So yeah, so having a literature professor analyze my novel was great. It was really, really great. And so, and I will say that he had some very kind things. And I mean, I think the book earns it. I've been listening. Of course, I listened to it again before doing the show with him to make sure. And I was like, the dialogue in that book gives me absolute goosebumps. bumps. It's some of the very best dialogue that I have ever written. All right, so let's see here. I recently read the Peaceful Parenting sitcom analogy to someone, and it turned the light bulb on for them. Full house, Mr. Belvedere, etc. Really effective. Well, thank you. I appreciate that. A pastor of mine once said, Jesus comforts the disturbed and disturbs the comfortable.

[53:20] Yeah yeah hey steph just last started listening to your novel the future last night such a visual journey that i just went to lay down with my headset on loving it so far thank you i absolutely that's also some of the most um gut-wrenching acting i've ever had to do is in that is in that novel i mean the the death scene of the father i mean obviously i faced a death with cancer uh many years ago and uh the death scene with the father which i wrote not too, too long after my own father died. The future is the best book by far. Oh, thank you. I appreciate that. I appreciate that.

[53:57] The Rachel Arlo Gloves Off Convo was riveting. Yes, yes, yes. I won't even go into the experiences that produced that. Now, my good friends, my good friends, I've been working hard, explained a lot, pushed back on a lot, giving you some real insights. 10 bucks. You know, I love you guys to death. Really appreciate you being here.

[54:18] Introduction to the Peaceful Parenting AI

[54:18] If you could help out, and remember, if you donate, you get, this month, right, you get a free copy of the Peaceful Parenting book, which you're welcome to share. And so if you could help out, freedomain.com slash donate, I would really appreciate it if you could join up. Freedomain.locals.com or freedomain, sorry, subscribestar.com, subscribestar.com slash freedomain. I'd really appreciate that too. And I know we're just on the one platform today, but I would really, really appreciate your help. Support. We'll never look at lemurs the same way. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. That actually came from personal experience. So bought a yearly sub this month. Thank you so much. I really, really do appreciate that. I really do appreciate that. So, okay, we're going to go donor, uh, and I'm going to hit you with this project that is great and wild. We got a, we got a minute, well, 58 seconds, 57, 50. We got a minute till we go a donor. Um, thank you for the tip. I appreciate that, Alan. And, uh.

[55:21] I'm sure that there'll be a donation or two at freedomain.com. With AI, maybe you could do an animated movie of the future and the present. Find some willing voice actors. Could be a blockbuster at $10 so far this week. Well worth it. Well, AI is going to be able to generate the whole movie from a script. Like I had AI, and I posted this at freedomain.locals.com. I had AI summarize the first 12 chapters of my novel, The Present. And it got the themes in really wild ways. It actually managed to unpack and get some of the themes, which was wild to me.

[56:03] That's the first example that I've seen of AI where it really does look intelligent. That was really something. That was really something. The challenge, of course, with the novels, is getting good voice actors and rehearsals and all of that and getting everyone together because i'd want everyone in the same room and all of that we're talking um probably 20 grand and you know with 15 donations that's a long way to 20 grand so i appreciate that's a great idea i love the idea and i have lots of experience directing actors and all of that so i could do some great stuff but.

[56:50] All right. We have gone to supporters. Are we supporters only? Yes. Okay. So, thank you for joining and appreciate that. Really do appreciate your support. And are we donor only? We are donor only. Yes, only for supporters. So, the project which we've been working on is...

[57:18] The Peaceful Parenting AI. It's the Peaceful Parenting chatbot.

[57:26] So obviously we've loaded it up with the book, but we've loaded it up with a huge amount of other material. So of course I have the first draft of the book from some years ago.

[57:37] I have private articles about it, which were sort of my notes and research. We have podcasts that we have transcribed and loaded up the peaceful parenting AI. And it's really good. It's really good.

[57:54] Questions for the Peaceful Parenting AI

[57:55] And so here's my sort of thought, right? I'd like to share it, but I don't have a good technology for sharing more than just my camera at the moment. So do me a solid. Do me a solid. And tell me, give me questions that I can pump into the, yeah, the expert interviews. Yeah, all kinds of great stuff has gone in there, right? So, because I do want people to have this as a resource where they can say, I'm having this trouble, what should I do? What's a good approach to this? What's the best argument for this? What's a rebuttal to that? And what's the research behind the reasoning behind peaceful parenting? And give me the syllogisms. Like, I just want people to be able to grill peaceful parenting. And, you know, I can do, yeah, lots and lots. Jared did a great job putting this source material together. Just a wonderful job. And so, yeah, hit me with questions. Hit me with questions and let's see. You know, we can also find places where it could be tweaked or whatever, right? So hit me with some questions for the peaceful parenting. Your work is invaluable. Here is a bit to help. Thank you. I appreciate that.

[59:03] So, yeah, hit me with some questions. and you can of course always email them support at freedomain.com. You can get Jared to have a look at the questions. We can pump them through, but, let's take it for a spin. Let's take it for a spin. Take it for a spin, Sean Connery style. Let's, yeah, let's take it for a spin. And if you've got questions about this, I would be thrilled to pump them through and see what we get. From them. Ah, how can I brush my, how can I get my child to brush his teeth, without using a force? Okay, great. Um, sorry, could you just, oh, I think, I think I remember it. I think I remember it. Um, hang on. Um, all right, let's do it.

[1:00:01] Let's zoom in for my slightly aging eyes. All right. Let's go here. Type your message. All right. I've got this. How can I get my child to brush his teeth without using force? It's thinking. It's perusing. All right. Here we go. Here we go. Satellite radio. You'll get hit with the boom, boom. Not bad. Not bad. Not bad. Oh, gosh. And it's quite a lot. All right, let's do it. To get your child to brush their teeth without using force, consider adopting a more understanding and collaborative approach. Here are some strategies based on the context provided. One, explain the importance. Take the time to explain why brushing teeth is important. Use age-appropriate language to discuss the consequences of not brushing, such as cavities, tooth decay, and the discomfort that comes with dental problems. Two, find what they like. Discover a toothpaste flavor or a toothbrush that your child likes. Making the experience more enjoyable can motivate them to brush their teeth regularly. Three, empathy and understanding. Show empathy towards your child's feelings about brushing their teeth. If they, I know it goes singular, your child's a they, but whatever. If they express dislike or discomfort, try to understand the specific reasons. It could be the taste of the toothbrush, the texture of the toothbrush, or even the timing.

[1:01:17] Four, involve them in the process. Let your child choose their toothbrush or toothpaste. Involvement in the decision-making process can increase their willingness to brush their teeth. Five, educational resources. Use books, videos, or apps designed to teach children about dental hygiene in a fun and engaging way. Sometimes, a visual or interactive lesson can be more effective than a verbal explanation. 6. Model good behavior. That's straight out of the book, right? Children learn by example. Make sure you are practicing good dental hygiene yourself and let your child see you brushing your teeth regularly. 7. Create a routine. Establish a consistent routine for brushing teeth, making it a regular part of the day, like before bedtime or after breakfast. Consistency helps build habits. 8.

[1:01:58] Use positive reinforcement. Praise your child for brushing their teeth and acknowledge their effort. Positive reinforcement can encourage them to continue the behavior. 9. Collaborative problem solving. If resistance persists, engage in a collaborative problem-solving conversation. Ask your child what they dislike about brushing their teeth and work together to find solutions that address their concerns. By approaching the situation with patience, understanding, and creativity, you can encourage your child to brush their teeth without resorting to force, turning it into a positive and educational experience. Experience for both of you okay that's that's pretty good right that's straight out of the bot that's pretty good that is pretty good all right let's uh let's do this i think you need to give it a name yeah so i mean jared's idea was from my novel the future to call it angel but we'll see.

[1:02:57] Is the bot based on your material or does it also pull from other sources such as the origin of war and child abuse? We can't train an AI on the origin of war and child abuse because that's including peaceful parenting with vivid descriptions of the exact opposite of peaceful parenting which would not be helpful for the bot. All right. So how do I address the topics of spanking with my friends and family? Now that's interesting because I hope the bot is going to know that spanking relates to children and not that you're spanking your friends and family, which, although consensual, could be considered pretty kinky. Right, okay, so let's go here. That's a great question. Let's see how we do. Mulling, mulling, mulling. Let's see what we get.

[1:03:46] Good, good, good. When addressing the topic of spanking with friends and family, it's important to approach the conversation with empathy, respect, and focus on sharing information rather than judgment. Here are some steps you might consider. One, start with common ground. Begin by acknowledging a shared goal, such as wanting the best for children and their development. This establishes a positive intent for the conversation. Perfect. Two, share personal insights. If applicable, share your own journey of learning about the effects of spanking and how it has influenced your parenting or beliefs.

[1:04:15] Addressing Objective Morality Rejection

[1:04:15] Personal stories can be more impactful than abstract arguments, especially if you're talking to women, right? Three, present the research. Gently introduce the research findings on spanking, emphasizing the long-term effects it can have on children's behavior and emotional development. Highlight the studies that show spanking can lead to increased aggression, mental health problems, and hindered cognitive development in children.

[1:04:38] Four, discuss alternatives. Talk about positive discipline strategies that focus on teaching and guiding rather than punishing. Emphasize the importance of understanding the reasons behind a child's behavior and addressing those underlying needs. Five, listen and empathize. Be prepared to listen to their views without immediate judgment. Many people have grown up in environments where spanking was the norm and changing deeply held beliefs can take time. 6. Offer resources. Recommend books, articles, and other resources that provide more information on peaceful parenting and the effects of spanking. Sometimes having access to a variety of sources can help individuals feel more comfortable exploring new ideas. 7. Encourage reflection. Encourage your friends and family to reflect on their own experiences and how they felt when disciplined as children. This can sometimes open the door to more empathetic approaches to parenting. Remember, the goal is to foster a constructive dialogue that encourages reflection and learning, not to create division or defensiveness. That is a great answer. That's really not much that I would add to it.

[1:05:48] Um, how does, how could you say, how do a child deal with drunk father every night? Um, that's not a parenting question. I mean, I'll, I'll put it aside. And if we, we need something at the end, I'd be curious to see what it says. I'll just change it a little bit. So how could a child deal with a drunk father every night? Um, but that's not a parenting question. That's a child in question. So, uh, we'll see it later. Right. Okay. How would you approach talking to someone about moral philosophy who rejects the concept of objective morality? That's not a parenting question. Do you mean this? How about, can we say, how would you approach talking to a parent about moral philosophy?

[1:06:39] I'm just going to make this a little easier for the bot. I don't mean to overly, I'm not going to censor it, but how would you approach talking to a parent who rejects the concept of objective morality about moral philosophy? I'm curious what it will say about that. It's not particularly a parenting question. That would be more for StephBot AI, but let's see what it says. All right, let's see what we get. Good stuff so far. All right.

[1:07:13] All right, let's zoom in a little here. When approaching a conversation with a parent who rejects the concept of objective morality about moral philosophy, it's important to engage in a respectful and open dialogue. Here are some strategies that might be helpful. One, find common ground. Start by identifying any shared values or principles. Even if your foundational beliefs about morality differ, this can create a basis for a more constructive conversation. Two, ask questions. Instead of directly challenging their beliefs, ask thoughtful questions that encourage them to explain their perspective more fully. This can lead to a deeper understanding for both of you and can reveal areas where you might agree or respectfully disagree. Three, share perspectives. Share your understanding of moral philosophy and the importance of objective morality in guiding behavior and decisions. Explain how this framework can be beneficial for making consistent and fair decisions, especially in parenting. 4. Use examples. Sometimes abstract concepts can be made clearer through concrete examples. Discuss hypothetical or real scenarios where the objective moral standards could play a crucial role in determining the right course of action.

[1:08:26] Okay. Oh, so examples. So the examples can be theoretical rather than just sheer reasoning. Okay, that's good. I mean, I talk about this analogies and all of that in my colon shows. Okay, five, discuss consequences. Talk about the potential consequences of not having a shared understanding of morality, both in family dynamics and in broader social contexts. Highlight how objective moral standards can help in resolving conflicts and guiding behavior towards more positive outcomes. Six, encourage reflection. Encourage them to reflect on situations where they have applied their own standards of right and wrong and how those standards would determine it. This can lead to a deeper exploration of their beliefs and how they align with or differ from objective moral principles. Seven, be patient and open. Recognize that deeply held beliefs are not likely to change in a single conversation. Show openness to continuing the dialogue and and express your willingness to understand their perspective while sharing your own. Remember, the goal is not to win an argument, but to engage in a meaningful exchange of ideas that could lead to a better understanding of each other's perspective on moral philosophy. Now, that's good. That's good for an AI. To me, a StephBot AI would probably say, well, opposing objective moral standards in philosophy is to deploy an objective moral standard in philosophy called there is no objective standard in philosophy. So that would be that, right? Great cue. All right.

[1:09:52] Let's see. What to do if my child is being bullied at school? All right. I would phrase it a little better. You know, what should I do or what could I do? But let's just put that straight in and see what we get. What to do if my child is being bullied at school?

[1:10:06] Handling Bullying at School

[1:10:07] What to do if my child is being bullied at school? We ask the peaceful parenting AI. Thank you.

[1:10:19] All right. If your child is being bullied at school, it's crucial to take immediate and decisive action to protect them and address the situation. Here are steps you can take. One, listen and validate. First, listen to your child's experiences without judgment. Validate their feelings and let them know it's not their fault. Assure them that you're there to help. Two, gather information. Collect as much information as you can about the bullying incidents, including who was involved, where and when the bullying occurred, and if there were any witnesses. 3. Communicate with the school. Contact your child's teacher, school counselor, or principal to report the bullying. Provide them with the details you've gathered and ask about the school's policies on bullying and what steps will be taken to address the situation.

[1:11:03] 4. Develop a plan. Work with the school to develop a plan to ensure your child's safety. This might include changing your child's class schedule, increasing supervision during vulnerable times, or implementing a buddy system. 5. Teach coping strategies. Help your child develop strategies to deal with bullying. This can include assertiveness training, role-playing how to respond to bullies, and identifying safe places for adults or adults they can go to for help. 6. Monitor the situation. Stay in close contact with your child and the school to monitor the situation. Ask for updates and ensure that the agreed-upon actions are being taken. 7. Consider additional support. If the bullying continues or your child is struggling emotionally, consider seeking support from a psychologist or counselor who specializes in bullying and child development. 8. Advocate for change. If the school's response is inadequate, consider escalating your concerns. This might involve contacting the school board, joining a parent advocacy group, or seeking legal advice. Remember, your primary role is to protect your child and advocate for their well-being. Taking swift and appropriate action is key to addressing bullying effectively. Right, so good stuff. I don't particularly talk about bullying in the book, so this is helpful stuff. It doesn't, of course, say homeschooling is an option, blah, blah, blah. All right. All right.

[1:12:26] How do I... These are great questions, guys. Thank you. Keep them coming. How do I, as a peaceful parent with peacefully parented kids, deal with other parents in public settings? All right. I would phrase that to, how would I, how do my peacefully parented kids deal with non-peacefully parented kids or something like, but whatever, you know, I mean, these are my tweaks. Doesn't mean that they're right or wrong. That's how I would do it. But let's put, copy and paste your question. How do I, as a peaceful parent with peacefully parented kids, deal with other parents in public settings? All right.

[1:12:55] Dealing with Other Parents in Public Settings

[1:12:56] Let's see. See, again, see what we get, right? This is a, it's a bit of a mystery box as all AI is, but let's see what we get. Sorry, I just got a message here. Yeah, okay. As a peaceful parent with peacefully parented kids, dealing with other parents in public settings involves demonstrating your parenting principles through actions while also navigating interactions with respect and understanding. Here are some strategies. One, model peaceful parenting. Continue to model the principles of peaceful parenting, even in public settings. This includes engaging with your children calmly, using negotiation and reasoning, and showing empathy towards their feelings and needs. Two, stay true to your values.

[1:13:37] Maintaining Commitment

[1:13:38] Maintain your commitment to peaceful parenting practices, even if faced with contrasting parenting styles. This consistency not only reinforces your values to your children, but also serves as a living example to others. Couldn't say it better. Three, offer support, not judgment. If you observe a parent struggling, offer support or assistance rather than judgment. Sometimes a simple act of kindness can open the door to a conversation about differing parenting approaches. I've done this many times. I don't go and condemn them. I just say, can I help out? Or, you know, this probably isn't the parenting that you want to be doing. You know, anything I can do to help, that kind of stuff. Four, share your experiences. When appropriate, share your positive experiences with peaceful parenting, focusing on the benefits you've observed in your children's behavior and your family's dynamics. Personal stories can be powerful and inspiring, yes. Five, seek common ground. Find areas of common interests or concern with other parents. Focusing on shared goals for your children's wellbeing being can foster a sense of community and mutual respect. Six, respect boundaries. Recognize and respect that each family may have different beliefs and practices. While you can offer insights from your own experience, it's important to do so with sensitivity to others' perspectives. So I wouldn't say and respect, but that just seems to be a typical thing, right? Seven, educate through resources. If other parents express interest in learning more about peaceful parenting, suggest resources such as books, websites, or community groups that provide information and support.

[1:15:03] Eight, create a supportive network. Seek out or create a community of like-minded parents. Having a supportive network can provide a space for sharing experiences, advice, and encouragement. By embodying the principles of peaceful parenting and approaching interactions with empathy and openness, you can navigate public settings in a way that respects both your values and those of other parents. Yeah, and again, the respect thing, you know, I'm sorry, there's just an HR department in AI which demands the word respect, right? In everything, right?

[1:15:32] Moral Responsibility and Parenting

[1:15:33] Agenda neutral there, yeah, probably Okay, Is a father morally responsible for any harm that may occur if he leaves his child in the sole care of the child's unstable crazy mother while he goes on a work trip overseas?

[1:15:53] I mean whether he has a legal choice or not Okay, but let's, you know, let's just pump it in, right? Let's pump it in and see what we get And let me know what you guys think of these answers. So the question is, is the father morally responsible for any harm that may occur if he leaves his child in the sole care of the child's unstable, crazy mother while he goes on a work trip overseas? And peaceful parenting says, I don't know the answer. Okay, so I'm just, let me just try tweaking this a little bit.

[1:16:29] Um the ghost on a trip overseas thing is not particularly relevant so let's just see what i did was i say is a father morally responsible for any harm that may occur if he leaves his child in the care of the child's unstable mother i don't know if he's going to get this or not let's see this is a bit outside to the uh peaceful parenting right okay we got there so maybe the uh the trip overseas is a bit of a um a red herring for the ai so we got an answer and it says based on the context provided it's clear that parents are seen as having a significant moral responsibility for the well-being and safety of their children this includes making decisions that protect them from harm if a father knowingly leaves his child in the care of an unstable mother where there is a foreseeable risk of harm, the documents suggest that he would share responsibility for any negative outcomes that occur as a result. The underlying principles is that parents have a duty to safeguard their children's physical and emotional well-being, which includes making informed decisions about their care and the environments they are exposed to. A delicate and good answer, in my opinion. So, yeah, we got it. Wow, amazing stuff. Truly blown away. Isn't that great, right?

[1:17:43] Cry It Out Debate

[1:17:43] All right. Is letting my child cry it out a form of peaceful parenting? And provide the argument why this is or is not a form of peaceful parenting. A great question, and I appreciate that. Certainly comes with a personal history of mine. All right, so let's go. It is interesting. Let's see. Letting a child cry it out is generally not considered a form of peaceful parenting. Peaceful parenting emphasizes understanding, empathy, and responding to the needs of the child. Oh, yeah, so now the cry it out? Are you talking about a baby or a child, right? That's the difference. I wouldn't let a child cry it out, but a baby.

[1:18:29] Baby. Okay, we'll do the child, then we'll try the baby thing. Okay. The philosophy behind peaceful parenting is to build a relationship with the child based on mutual respect, open communication, and understanding rather than using methods that may lead to feelings of abandonment or distress in the child. The argument against cry it out within the context of peaceful parenting is that it does not address the underlying needs or reasons for a child's distress. Instead of teaching the child to self-soothe in a healthy way, it may teach them that there their signals for help or comfort will not be answered potentially, will not be answered potentially, leading to issues with trust and attachment.

[1:19:04] Responding to Child's Cries

[1:19:04] Peaceful parenting advocates for responding to a child's cries by offering comfort, trying to understand the cause of their distress and helping them learn to manage their emotions in a supportive environment. Furthermore, peaceful parenting is about guiding and teaching the child through positive reinforcement and modeling desired behaviors rather than using techniques that can cause emotional pain or fear. The goal is to foster a secure, trusting relationship between parent and child, where the child feels safe and understood, which is seen as the foundation for a healthy emotional and psychological development. So I would absolutely accept that as an answer for a toddler onwards, but a baby, right? Let's say that there's a baby who wakes up every hour. The baby is like, I don't know, six months old, wakes up every hour.

[1:19:55] And can't get back to sleep without huge amounts of parental investment, right?

[1:20:02] That's interesting, right? And that's a question. Now, I don't want to fudge this, so that's the answer, and it's good, but I would be interested, I'll make a note of this, I would be interested to see how it would be the case with a baby, right? With a baby. So, absolutely, letting a child cry it out would be very bad, in my opinion, right? All right.

[1:20:31] All right. Let me just get... Are you considering creating an app to put out there for general use by the public? No, not an app. It would just be a website. All right. Great questions, by the way. Thank you, guys. Good one okay how are children not evil since they often break the non-aggression principle in their behavior for example stealing all right that's a good question let's see how we do, and it's interesting because this isn't of course specifically addressed i don't think in the book but let's see see how we get.

[1:21:16] Is it going to be able to answer? It's an interesting phraseology. Let's see how we do it.

[1:21:22] All right. Children are not inherently evil when they exhibit behaviors that break the non-aggression principles, such as stealing. It's important to understand that children are in the process of learning and developing their understanding of moral principles, including respect for others' property and personal boundaries. Their actions, which might seem to violate these principles, are often part of their natural exploration, learning process, and a reflection of their developmental stage, age rather than an indication of inherent moral failing. Peaceful parenting approaches these situations as opportunities for teaching and guidance rather than punishment. The idea is to model and explain the values of empathy, respect, and personal responsibility. By doing so, parents can help children understand the impact of their actions on others and guide them towards more respectful and empathetic behavior in the future. Moreover, labeling children as evil for such behaviors can be harmful and counterproductive. It can affect their self-esteem and their understanding of moral and ethical behavior. Instead, peaceful parenting focuses on positive reinforcement, setting clear and consistent boundaries, and using natural consequences to teach children about the importance of the non-aggression principle in a supportive and understanding environment.

[1:22:32] In summary, children's actions that seem to violate the non-aggression principle are part of their learning process. Peaceful parenting aims to guide them towards understanding and internalizing these principles through empathy, teaching, and positive modeling, rather than through punishment or negative labeling. Good job, AI. Good job, AI. That's great.

[1:22:56] What are some strong arguments? For infant circumcision, that's interesting. And I just sort of was talking with the guys the other day about how we didn't do circumcision. And maybe, I have, Jared, just make a note of this. I have a presentation called The Truth About Circumcision. Maybe we could load that. We should load that into the AI. But let's see. All right. What are some strong arguments for infant circumcision and what are the rebuttals to those arguments? Let's see how we do. It could have been in one of the other shows. No, it doesn't have. I'm going to say, what are some strong arguments against? It says, maybe try rephrasing your question. And the rebuttals, because I don't have the strong arguments and rebuttals. So other than the, I do have some rebuttals in there, in the book as a whole, but it's not a central part of the book. I do have rebuttals to parental defenses. So I'm going to say, what are some arguments against infant circumcision? Maybe it'll do it, maybe it won't, but we can load up the circumcision presentation and see.

[1:24:09] Arguments against infant circumcision often revolve around ethical, medical, and psychological considerations. Here are some key points. 1. Violation of bodily autonomy. Critics argue that infant circumcision is not medically necessary for the health of the baby. The American Academy of Pediatrics states that while there are potential health benefits, they are not compelling enough to recommend universal newborn circumcision. 2. Risk of complications. Like any surgical procedure, circumcision carries risks of complications such as infection, bleeding, and improper healing. Critics argue that subjecting infants to these risks without compelling medical reason is unjustifiable. 4. Psychological and emotional impact. There is concern about the potential psychological and emotional impact of circumcision on infants, including pain and trauma, although infants may not consciously remember the procedure the pain experienced can have unknown long-term effects.

[1:25:00] 5. Cultural and religious considerations. Some argue that circumcision is often performed for cultural or religious reasons rather than health-related ones. Critics believe that personal beliefs should not dictate the alteration of a child's body without their consent. Six, impact on sexual pleasure. There is debate about the impact of circumcision on sexual pleasure. Some studies suggest that circumcision can lead to decreased sensitivity of the penis, potentially affecting sexual satisfaction later in life. Rebuttals to these arguments typically focus on the potential health benefits of circumcision, such as a reduced risk of urinary tract infections, penile cancer, and the transmission of some sexually transmitted infections, including HIV. Proponents may also argue that parental rights include making health-related decisions for their children, including the choice to circumcise based on cultural, religious, or health-related reasons. However, the debate continues as more parents and medical professionals weigh the ethical considerations against the potential health benefits with a growing emphasis on informed consent and the rights of the child. Diplomatic and gentle, and pretty, pretty accurate. All right. All right. James, how can I stop my toddler from running into the street if I can't spank him? All right. A fine, fine question. What have we got? Model not running into the street. Over and over. All right. Let's see what we got.

[1:26:27] All right. To prevent your toddler from running into the street without resorting to spanking, you can employ several strategies that focus on understanding, guidance, and protection. Here are some effective methods. Oh, there's quite a few. One, supervision. Always ensure close supervision when your child is near streets or driveways. Physical presence allows you to intervene quickly if they attempt to run off. Two, use barriers. Implement physical barriers such as fences or gates to create a safe play area away from the street. This can prevent access to dangerous areas. Three, teach and explain. Regularly explain the dangers of the street and cars in an age-appropriate manner. Use simple language and possibly visual aids to help them understand why it's unsafe.

[1:27:09] 4. Practice safe behavior. Teach your child to stop, look, and listen before crossing any street and practice this behavior together. Reinforce the importance of holding an adult's hand near roads. 5. Create safe play areas. Designate safe play areas away from the street. Encourage playing in these areas by making them appealing and fun. One, six, use distractions. If your child is drawn to the street, redirect their attention to other activities or toys that are safe and engaging. Seven, positive reinforcement. Praise and reward your child for following safety rules and staying away from the street. Positive reinforcement can encourage them to continue safe behaviors. Eight, establish clear rules. Set clear and consistent rules about playing near the street. Ensure your child understands the consequences of not following these rules, such as having to play inside. Nine, role-playing. Engage in role-playing games where your child practices what to do when they're near a street. This can help reinforce safe behavior in a fun and memorable way. Ten, emergency plan. Teach your child what to do if they find themselves near a street unexpectedly, such as standing still and calling for an adult. By focusing on education, supervision, and positive reinforcement, you can effectively teach your toddler to stay away from the street without the need for spanking or physical punishment. Great set of answers, in my humble opinion. All right.

[1:28:34] How could you convince a Christian parent that spanking isn't commanded by God slash the Bible? That's a great question. Let's do this. Let's see what we get. Maybe it will make it. Maybe it won't. It should get to the answer, I think. Here we go. All right. To convince a Christian parent that spanking isn't commanded by God or the Bible, it's helpful to approach the conversation with respect, understanding, and focus on shared values. Like love, guidance, and the well-being of children, here are some strategies that could be effective. objective. Discuss the interpretation of Proverbs 13.24. Explain that the rod mentioned in Proverbs 13.24 can be interpreted as a symbol of guidance and leadership, similar to how a shepherd uses a rod to guide sheep rather than to beat them. Emphasize that the essence of the verse is about loving the guiding and teaching children, not about physical punishment.

[1:29:35] Highlight Jesus' teachings on love and guidance. Point out that Jesus' teachings emphasize love, gentleness, and forgiveness. Discuss how these principles can be applied to parenting, suggesting that guiding children with love and understanding aligns more closely with Jesus' teachings than physical punishment does.

[1:29:53] 3. Share research on the effects of spanking. While respecting their faith in the Bible, you can introduce research findings that show the negative effects of spanking, such as increased aggression and mental health issues in children. Emphasize that this information is not about undermining their faith, but about considering the well-being of their children. 4. Discuss the concept of modeling behavior. Talk about how children learn by example. By using non-violent forms of discipline, parents model problem-solving and emotional regulation, teaching children how to handle conflicts and emotions in a healthy way. Five, explore alternative discipline methods. Share and discuss alternative discipline methods that are consistent with Christian values, such as natural consequences, time-ins, and positive reinforcement. I don't know what a what time in is, but we can look that up. These methods can be effective in teaching right from wrong without causing physical or emotional harm. Six, encourage seeking guidance from religious leaders. Suggest consulting with a pastor or religious leader who may share a perspective on non-physical forms of discipline. Some religious leaders may offer a more modern interpretation of biblical teachings or parenting. Seven, appeal to their love for their child. Remind them that the ultimate goal of discipline is to protect and teach their child. Encourage them to consider methods that strengthen their relationship with their child and foster a loving, respectful environment.

[1:31:13] Approaching the conversation with empathy, focusing on shared values, and providing thoughtful, respectful insights can help open a dialogue about non-physical forms of discipline that align with Christian values.

[1:31:22] Convincing Christian Parents

[1:31:22] I mean, come on, that's great. That's great. Good for you.

[1:31:30] I'm interested what it has to say about paying an allowance. Give me a question. It takes a lot of diplomacy for these convo's instead of getting enmeshed in other people's opinions. Yeah, that's true.

[1:31:45] This would be very useful for my six children, yeah, yeah. On the topic of bullying, homeschooling would seem to be the ultimate sanction. If the local law controls what curriculum you must teach, then consider what options you have to relocate the family to where you don't have said restrictions. Yeah, could be. Could be. What is the briefest definition of peaceful parenting? Are you saying that my 800-page book is not brief? Don't make me. Just wear my briefs. All right. All right. Right. What is the briefest definition of peaceful parenting? Let's see what we got. This should be AI central. This would be really good for AI. Thanks for these great questions, by the way. Peaceful parenting is the refusal to be a bottomless moral hypocrite, teaching children virtue in an honest and consistent manner without resorting to bullying and hypocritical manipulations. Spicy. Peaceful parenting is the refusal to be a bottomless moral hypocrite, teaching children virtue in an honest and consistent manner without resorting to bullying and hypocritical manipulations. Well, that's a little bit of spice. That's some good spice. And I'm not going to argue. List the underlying principles and guidelines of peaceful parenting.

[1:33:03] She keeps a more wittish end on in some peaceful parenting. If this is too long, I might just copy-paste, but I'm curious what it's going to do. Oh, that's good. The underlying principles and guidelines of peaceful parenting are derived, as derived from the provided context, include, one, extension of the non-aggression principle to children. Peaceful parenting is fundamentally about extending the non-aggression principle, NAP, to children. This means treating children with the same respect for their autonomy and rights as one would any other human being, avoiding the initiation of force against them. 2. Modeling Moral Behavior Peaceful parenting emphasizes the importance of modeling moral behavior rather than relying heavily on verbal instruction. Children learn behaviors and values by observing and imitating their parents. By consistently demonstrating virtues like empathy, respect, and nonviolence, parents teach these values to their children 3. Credibility and consistency. The approach relies on the credibility of the parent as a moral guide. If parents live according to the values they wish to instill in their children, they become effective role models. Consistency between a parent's words and actions is crucial. 4. Consistency.

[1:34:26] Consideration of children's needs. Peaceful parenting places a strong emphasis on being considerate of children's needs and prioritizing them. Understanding and addressing these needs with empathy and respect is key. Five, nonviolent communication. Sorry, flashback from way back. Nonviolent communication and discipline. The approach advocates for nonviolent communication and discipline strategies. It involves guiding and teaching children without resorting to physical punishment, or verbal aggression, using methods that foster understanding and learning. Now, nonviolent communication is sort of a trademark of, or it's a phrase that's used by, was it Rosenberg or something like that? And I had tussles with people in the past about this, but it just simply means avoiding verbal abuse in this context, which makes perfect sense to me. Six, fostering a loving and respectful environment. Creating an environment where children feel loved, respected, and safe is a cornerstone of peaceful parenting. This environment supports children's emotional and psychological development and strengthens the parent-child relationship.

[1:35:30] 7. Encouraging Autonomy and Independent Thinking Peaceful parenting encourages children to develop autonomy and independent thinking. By respecting children's perspectives and allowing them to make choices within safe boundaries, parents support their growth into self-reliant and confident individuals. Individuals. Eight, engagement in enjoyable interactions. The approach values the power of positive and enjoyable interactions between parents and children. Through shared activities and open communication, parents and children build a strong, positive relationship.

[1:36:01] These principles and guidelines aim to foster a nurturing and respectful family dynamic, where children grow up learning the values of empathy, respect, and non-aggression through the examples set by their parents. Good. Okay, let's do a couple more. I think these are great and it's a good, good running test.

[1:36:16] Addressing Urges for Abusive Parenting

[1:36:17] Those are great answers. Great answers. AI just went sentient. Yeah, it's really good, right? Really good.

[1:36:32] If you create an app that is essentially a locked web browser that opens to Angel, that would help broaden your reach. I'm envisioning a common scenario. Yeah, okay. My father threw a baseball bat at my head when I was 15 in response to me recklessly breaking some garden furniture by throwing it around the yard. Is my father morally responsible for any short-term or long-term brain damage that was caused to me, or does he have a valid excuse because I damaged his property? Okay, I mean, sorry, there's a typo or two and a grammar or two problem here, so I'm going to just fix that up. This is the guy, are you the guy who said he was perfectly sane? Okay. My father threw a baseball bat at my head when I was 15 in response to me recklessly breaking some garnish furniture on the ride of the yacht. Okay, period. I'm going to period, right? Period. Is my father morally responsible for any short-term or long-term brain damage that was caused to me, or does he have a valid excuse because I damaged his property? That's a great question, man, and this is going to stretch it out. Let's stretch the AI brain and see what happens.

[1:37:45] We may need to shave it down a little because there's... Yes. Your father is morally responsible for any short-term or long-term brain damage that was caused to you. The documents suggest that using violence as a response to a child's actions, regardless of the provocation, is a violation of the non-aggression principle. The act of throwing a baseball bat at your head in response to damaging property is an escalation to physical violence that is not justified by the initial action. The responsibility to handle situations without resorting to violence, especially in a parent-child relationship, is emphasized. The moral responsibility of a parent includes guiding and teaching their children in a non-violent manner, regardless of the child's behavior. Well, amen to that, and great job, AI. Oh, a time-in approach to guiding children's behavior involves staying close to your child when they are overwhelmed with strong feelings. Okay, thank you. I appreciate it. That's great. Great stuff.

[1:38:51] Let's see here what are the main issues with the theory of non-violent communication when it comes to parenting I'll put that in but again the book is about peaceful parenting or the AI is trained on peaceful parenting not oppositions to peaceful parenting but let's see let's see, so what are the main issues with the theory of non-violent communication I'm going to hyphenate that if you don't mind non-violent communication when it comes to parenting hunting. Let's see what it says.

[1:39:23] The documents suggest that while the theory of non-violent communication, NVC, is fundamentally aligned with peaceful parenting and the non-aggression principle, there might be challenges or considerations specific to parenting. Here are some main issues or considerations when applying non-violent communication to parenting based on the principles outlined. 1. Complexity for children. The concepts and language of NVC, non-violent communication, might be too abstract or complex for young children to fully understand. Tailoring the communication to be age-appropriate while maintaining the essence of empathy and understanding can be challenging. Two, consistency and patience. Applying NVC requires consistency and patience, especially in stressful situations. Parents might find it challenging to consistently apply NVC principles when under stress or when dealing with their own emotional responses. Three, misinterpretation as permissiveness. There's a potential for NVC to be misinterpreted as permissiveness, where boundaries are not clearly communicated or enforced. It's crucial for parents to find a balance between empathetic communication and setting clear, consistent boundaries for behavior. Four, time and effort. NVC requires time and effort to learn and implement effectively. In the fast-paced and often stressful context of parenting, dedicating time to practice and apply NVC techniques can be a significant challenge. Five, cultural and personal adaptation.

[1:40:41] Adapting NVC to fit personal and cultural contexts can be challenging. Parents may need to modify the approach to align with their family values and cultural norms while still adhering to the principles of empathy and nonviolence. Six, emotional regulation. For NVC to be effective, parents need to be adept at regulating their own emotions. This can be particularly challenging in moments of conflict or when dealing with behaviors that trigger strong emotional responses. Despite these challenges, the principles of nonviolent communication offer a powerful framework for fostering understanding, empathy, and connection between parents and children. By addressing these considerations, parents can effectively apply NVC in a way that supports peaceful parenting and the healthy development of their children. I have no particular issues with any of that. All right. Based on the statistics of parents who are abusive, approximately what percentage of parents parent peacefully? That sounds like a tongue twister. All right. I'll just paste that one straight in.

[1:41:40] Percentage of Abusive Parents

[1:41:40] Let's see.

[1:41:48] I don't know the answer. Okay, so I'm going to take out approximately and see if that does it any better. Okay, so let's try. Based on the statistics of parents who are abusive, I'm going to say and slash or aggressive. Aggressive, parents are not parenting peacefully. This is an inference question. AI works best with inductive reasoning, not deductive reasoning. So we'll see. We'll see. Based on the statistics of parents who are abusive and or aggressive, what percentage of parents, approximately what percentage of parents are not parenting peacefully? Let's see what we get there. This is quite an inferral thing because I've given the data and it has to infer the opposite. I don't know the answer yeah so that's interesting uh we will uh okay uh let's just say what percentage of parents are not peaceful parents.

[1:42:56] It may have problem with based on the statistics right because it may say well i don't actually have that blah blah blah right i'm not uh what percentage of peaceful parents are not aren't peaceful parents. This is sort of the AI massage stuff that you have to kind of sort out, right? I don't know the answer. Okay, so what percentage of parents, what percentage of parents can be considered abusive? Now, this may be a back-end stuff, right? I don't think, I think that there's abuse. If this is, this could be back up. This could be back in stuff where it just won't give you the answer. It's like some crime statistics. It just won't give you the answer.

[1:43:47] All right, so we've got something here. So if I say what percentage of parents can be considered abusive, based on the documents provided, it's challenging to give a precise percentage of parents who can be considered abusive globally due to variations in reporting, definitions of abuse, and the studies mentioned. However, the documents highlight significant concerns. A national survey found that 59% of parents reported having spanked a child aged 18 to 23 months. This figure alone, while focused on a specific age group and form of physical discipline suggests a high prevalence of behaviors that some may classify as abusive under certain definitions of child abuse, right? Obviously, the legal department has, okay. The 2011 National Intimate Partner and Sexual Violence Survey indicated that nearly half of Americans encountered lifelong emotional abuse from a partner, which indirectly suggests a potentially high rate of emotional abuse within families as well. So that's interesting. That's an inference thing, right? So it's saying, well, and I think this is in the book, but it's good to have gotten it, right? Saying, look, I mean, if you're getting emotional abuse from a partner, that means it came from somewhere, right?

[1:44:50] The document also notes that over half of all children in the world, 1 billion children ages 2 to 17, experience violence every year, according to global estimates. These points suggest that a significant portion of parents may engage in behaviors that could be considered abusive, whether through physical discipline like spanking or emotional and psychological abuse. However, without a unified definition of abuse and comprehensive global data, it's difficult to provide a specific percentage of parents who are abusive. Okay. So yeah, just so a little bit, you're asking it for the non-categorization of a wide variety of data estimates, like the opposite. And I can understand why it would have trouble with that.

[1:45:31] Let's see here. What steps can a parent do? Sorry, I'm going to just massage that a bit, and I'm sure you would get this, right? So, steps. I said, what steps can a parent take? It's probably better. You know what? No, you know what? Let's leave it as do. Let's leave it as do. What steps can a parent... Okay, let's just leave it. It's a bit awkward grammatically, but we'll survive, and let's see what we get.

[1:46:04] Love these questions guys thank you so much for the test all right if a parent feels an unexpected urge or impulse to parent in the abusive way they were parented it's crucial to take immediate steps to address these feelings to prevent harmful behaviors here are steps based on the principle outlined in the documents one pause and breathe the first step is to pause and take a moment to breathe deeply this can help interrupt the impulse and provide a moment to choose a different response. Two, recognize the trigger. Identify what triggered the urge. Understanding the trigger can help in addressing the underlying issue and preventing future occurrences. Three, seek support. Reach out to a trusted friend, family member, or professional for support. Talking about the urge can help diffuse it and provide perspective. Four, reflect on consequences. Consider the long-term consequences of abusive parenting on the child. reflecting on their potential harm can strengthen the resolve to choose a different path. 5. Use positive discipline strategies. Educate yourself on and implement positive discipline strategies that are respectful and empathetic. These strategies can help guide behavior without resorting to abuse. 6. Practice self-care. Engage in self-care practices to manage stress and emotional well-being. A parent who is physically and emotionally healthy is better equipped to handle parental and parenting challenges. 7. Seek professional help. If the urges are strong or persistent, and seeking help from a mental health professional can be crucial. Therapy can provide tools and strategies to break the cycle of abuse.

[1:47:32] 8. Educate yourself. Read books, attend workshops, or join support groups focused on peaceful parenting. Education can empower you to make positive changes in your parenting approach. 9. Develop a safety plan. If you're concerned about losing control, develop a safety plan. This might include stepping away from the situation, calling a friend, or using a stress relief strategy that works for you. 10. Forgive yourself. self. Understand that parenting is a journey and that seeking to change harmful patterns is a sign of strength. Forgive yourself for past mistakes and focus on making positive changes. By taking these steps, a parent can work towards breaking the cycle of abuse and fostering a loving, respectful, and peaceful relationship with their child. Good stuff. Good stuff. All right, giving it a workout. A mother slaps, okay, I'm just going to copy-paste this one in. I'm not going to edit. Let's just see what we get.

[1:48:27] Mother-Son Conflict Responsibility

[1:48:27] A mother slaps her 12-year-old son across the face for talking during a movie. The child then responds by punching the mother in the face. Okay. By punching the mother in the face and breaking her nose. Can you describe the proportion of moral responsibility shared between a child and a mother? All right, that's a challenging one. Let's see what we get.

[1:49:01] This may or may not work. Let's find out. All right. In the scenario described, both the mother and the child have moral responsibilities for their actions, but the proportion of moral responsibility is not evenly distributed. The document suggests that parents hold a greater degree of moral responsibility for violent interactions due to their role in raising and guiding their children. The mother, by slapping her son, initiates physical violence and sets a precedent for resolving conflicts through aggression. This action violates the non-aggression principle, which is a foundational guideline in peaceful parenting, indicating that striking a child is morally unacceptable.

[1:49:41] The child's response, while also violent and not justified, is a reaction to the violence initiated by the mother. The documents imply that children learn behaviors and conflict resolution methods from their parents. Therefore, if a child responds to conflict with violence, it reflects, to some extent, on the behaviors modeled by the parent. Given the context that the violent teenager or in this case preteen was raised by the parent being attacked the parent holds infinitely more responsibility for the crisis than a stranger would this suggests that while the child's action of punching the mother and breaking her nose is wrong and carries moral responsibility the mother's initial act of violence and her role in shaping the child's understanding of conflict resolution places a significant portion of the moral moral responsibility on her. In summary, both parties are morally responsible for their actions, but the mother bears a greater proportion of moral responsibility due to her role in initiating violence and her influence on her child's behavior and understanding of conflict resolution.

[1:50:45] Moral Responsibility Distribution

[1:50:45] Man, that's some good stuff, man. That's some good stuff. That is some good stuff, man. Very, very impressive.

[1:51:01] Um, all right. So, uh, great stuff. Great stuff. Uh, all right. So, yeah, so two hour show, I think I'm going to stop here, but this is, uh, this is great stuff.

[1:51:15] This is great stuff. Okay. So, um, we'll, uh, uh, just collate these answers. We'll load up the circumcision thing, and then we'll put it out to donors maybe later today, but thank you guys so much. Which, of course, if you're listening to this later, all of the work that it takes to produce these resources, which I think are obviously fantastic for the world as a whole, it's not cheap, and it is a lot of skill, and it is a lot of expertise, and it's a lot of documentation, and a lot of transcription, and all that kind of stuff.
