Nature and the Nation explores politics, philosophy, psychology, sociology and economics from a naturalistic, paleoconservative perspective, using the format of a book review. I examine books published in a wide array of time periods, with a special emphasis on the early to middle 20th century, the ancient Greeks, and of course the present.
 
Welcome to Will To Wisdom - A podcast exploring perspectives on living well. When we think of philosophy, grand questions come to mind: Does God exist? Do we have free will? What's the relationship between mind and matter? That kind of thing. What philosophers tend not to think so much about nowadays is what it takes to live a good life. This wasn't always the case. Philosophers in ancient times viewed the question of the good life as one of the subject's most fundamental. Will To Wisdom see ...

Perspective is everything sometimes. When it comes to creativity, especially, your point of view matters more than your level of expertise. This is because once knowledge crystalizes, it may rob us of curiosity. But perspective allows for it, and our evolution/growth. Written and Produced by Matthew C. Temple Edited by Tyen Musa Original Theme Musi…
 
I had a lot of fun on this one taking a nostalgic look at US culture in 1989 and 1993. Also found the story of Lyle and Erik Menendez incredibly interesting. Why did two brothers viciously murder their parents with shotguns in the summer of 1989? Erik was about to enroll in UCLA. Lyle was attending Princeton. Their parents spoiled them with money f…
 
We've all felt imposter syndrome. We've all felt like we're not worth it, or we're not good enough for the things we truly want. In life, we'll do anything for the ones we love. Many times though, we don't apply that same logic to ourselves. You have to show up for yourself and to do that you have to believe you're worth it. "What you decide in you…

After two years in which many people have not been able to gather with loved ones, the liklihood that even more people than usual will be hopping on the road, the plane or the train this time of year is to be expected.

Levi Boone Helm. The Kentucky Cannibal. Born in 1828 in Kentucky, and hanged in Montana Territory in 1864, this guy was mayhem on legs. He spent nearly his entire adult life fighting, robbing, killing, and running from the law. He killed at least 18 men in various shootouts and other violent encounters. He ended up stuck way out in the woods on num…
 
It can feel good to have options, but it's typically fear that sets us back from choosing an option, or a direction. When we're making a pivot or looking at our career long-term, we have to identify what it is we love to do, and balance that with our ideal role. Finding a new direction doesn't have to be difficult, but it has to be well-thought-out…
 
"Vitality involves intersection with and participation in the world around you. It is not predicated on taking a year off to find yourself. It doesn't require making a drastic change. You don't need to lose yourself in self-reflection. You don't need to overhaul your existence, or reinvent your life, or wait until the chaos [subsides]." —Dr. Samant…

As a job seeker, rejection is part of the process. Fortunately, there are specific ways to improve your chances of landing an interview, and the resume is one of the most difficult things for job seekers to get right. What is left out of your resume is equally as important as what is on it. Also, how you describe your skills and experience on the r…

Who put the rock-a-bye-baby up in the tree branch, and why? Seems irresponsible. When it was raining and pouring, why didn't the old man get out of bed after bumping his head? Did he die? What is Ring Around the Rosie really about? The bubonic plague? Why are we singing to small children about cutting the tails off of three blind mice? Who wrote al…
 
The majority of us are not trained in negotiation. When we think about negotiating, we think about sales, confrontation, and a lot of back and forth. Luckily, when you're interviewing for a job it's possible to simplify your negotiation to make it work for you, and the potential employer. It's your job as an interviewee to establish your salary ran…
 
"We fall in love harder and fear it more because we are drawn to the depth and complexity of the emotions we are going to unleash, but we also know that the consequences of such deep love are unforeseeable, a situation we never relish."—Elaine Aron, author of The Highly Sensitive Person in Love: Understanding and Managing Relationships When the Wor…

This week we have a guest interviewer. My friend Neil Daud from High Vibrations Movement had interviewed me for a podcast he had in the pipelines last year, but since he changed his mind about the show he was generous enough to have me post it here.

Happy Halloween! This episode feels appropriately dark enough for Halloween week. French serial killer Marcel Petiot was an evil genius. A master manipulator. And the greatest scam artist we've covered here so far. He likely lied his way into a medical degree. He ended up working at a psychiatric hospital when he was supposed to be a patient. He co…

Being in the job search can feel like a roller coaster ride. It turns out that we can control more than we think, we just have to focus our energy on those things. Apathy, lack of enthusiasm, and overall pessimism towards our search are our biggest detractors from success when it comes to landing that next job. We have to take a deeper look at how …
 
Most people will never be successful ... authentically successful. Viktor Frankl (Holocaust survivor and author of 'Man's Search for Meaning') said, "You become successful and happy when you pursue something beyond yourself … when you dedicate yourself to others. Then success and happiness show up." What is authentic success? Jesus reconnects us wi…
 
You know you, right? We think we know ourselves, but knowing who we are and describing it to others are two different things. It sounds simple, but highlighting our strengths and weaknesses can be one of the most challenging aspects of the interview process.

The Oregon Trail was 2,100 plus mile journey from Independence, Missouri all the way to Oregon City, Oregon. And along this trail and its offshoots, between 1841 and 1869, somewhere between 250,000 and 500,000 travelers headed West, motivated by the philosophy of Manifest Destiny and the hope for economic prosperity. The Homestead Act and the Monro…
 
"The missing element of oxygen, when brought home, gives us time in which we can record the tiny, visceral, magnificent details of living. The shower after a sweaty workout, a belly laugh with a friend, the warmth of fine whiskey, rain on the roof, or a tight and lasting hug . . . Busy can make you miss it all. Busy keeps you paddling along the sur…
 
When you create something, even fiction, pieces of you must go into it. Others get to experience you which can result in them being inspired (if they're open to relating) or them being triggered to crap on you. On this episode we talk about showing up honestly as creators, handling the challenge of vulnerability and the negative feedback that may a…
 
Oh boy. This is an especially weird one. Sometimes truth really is stranger than fiction. In the summer of 1965, John C. Lilly, a medic and neuroscientist, and his assistant Margaret Howe, a young lady who just happened to live nearby, would set up a partially-flooded house on St. Thomas in the US Virgin Islands, where Margaret would spend nearly t…
 
Even if you weren't happy with your previous role, that doesn't mean we can't get practical about the skills that crossover into the job search.

Time management requires discipline at the core, but…

Viktor Frankl was an Austrian psychiatrist, philosopher, author, and Holocaust survivor. He created the psychological construct, called "logotherapy" which asserts that the primary force of an individual is to find meaning in life. I have an inclination that the great resignation we're seeing now has a lot to do with Frankl's philosophy which is ba…
 
"Man's search for meaning is the primary motivation in his life and not a 'secondary rationalization' of instinctual drives. This meaning is unique and specific in that it must and can be fulfilled by him alone; only then does it achieve a significance which will satisfy his own will to meaning." —Viktor E. Frankl First published in Germany in 1946…
