117. Book Review | Meditations of Marcus Aurelius

Marcus Aurelius was an Emperor of Rome. He was also a wise, Stoic philosopher. He might be more remembered for his writings than what he did as a political and military leader.

His understanding of discipline and how you can grow in virtue only through channeling liberty for good is one that strikes a cord with me. I think that in an emotionally-driven culture, we can use some more stoicism and cold rationality as we discuss the relevant topics today.

142. Don’t Attribute To Stupidity That Which Is Proven To Be Malice Conversation of Our Generation

Stupidity doesn't explain everything. And, in our culture, it seems like too many sensible people deny evidence that points to malice in favor of the stupidity explanation. I try to look at things in a charitable light and not assign motives. That said, eventually when evidence stacks up high enough, it's time to admit that what may appear accidental wasn't. And, to not allow people to simply ask questions, but insist that they're conspiracy theorists if they do, is wrong. That's why today we're going to take a look at real conspiracies that are known world-wide as well as weird occurrences that you aren't allowed to attribute malice to- or even ask about.
