Just saw the full speech Alexandria gave in SF with nuanced commentary!

It's important to help people rehabilitate through mistakes, all of us deserve second chances. I think Logan's soul is more of a maverick and eccentric than anything else, which is desperately needed in our obedient, conformist world, where free-thinking seems to be under attack. Shattering social norms (in non-egregious ways) is very important as it challenges our way of conventional thinking and expands our minds to new areas of thought.

What is TIME? How do we apply the Pareto Principle to Knowledge and People Networks? Due to the 2nd Gutenberg Revolution, Memetics is more important than Genetics. Maximizing the formation of Neural Architecture from birth is crucial for getting the privilege to sit at the table of global leadership, guiding civilizational trajectory on this small rock to the next ones and beyond. I explain more in this blog post as well: https://medium.com/@allensaakyan/allens-manifesto-3538383983f4

Are you arguing Nurture>Nature? You're throwing out lots of fancy terms, but that's what I'm seeing this boil down to. I'd appreciate if you'd explain your view without referencing things and using simpler phrases. I went over the blog post but I'm not watching a 20 minute video, a concise written explanation of your ideas without the fancy terminology would be great.

exponential technology has caused the 2nd Gutenberg revolution and if one wants to be at the geopolitical leadership table, then disseminating high-utility information which progresses humanity is one's best ticket to get there, not focusing on having children... there's more but I'm trying to summarize and make it easier... hopefully that helped. thanks for challenging me to become better

What it comes down to is: somebody's going to have to work a shift at Starbucks today to support this young, able bodied fellow. You either believe he should be pulling that shift, or you (society) should be pulling it for him. I have my opinion.

what is your opinion and why do you think that way? there's a lot more nuance to this point
