I purchased a new vehicle a couple of weeks ago. Since then, I’m seeing Nissan Versa Notes everywhere (and they are not terribly common). We’ve all experienced this sensation before: we learn a new word, for example, and suddenly we hear it spoken frequently, when before it went unheard.
That’s the phenomenon I’m experiencing this morning: no sooner did I write about Big Tech’s crippling control over our freedom of speech, e-mail service Mailchimp unceremoniously dumped Internet philosopher and YouTube personality Stefan Molyneux. Molyneux hosts Freedomain Radio, which bills itself as “the world’s number one philosophy show.”
I’ve listened to a lot of Molyneux’s videos. He’s not my favorite commentator, and he can be a bit rambling (not that I can judge him too harshly for that), but his demeanor and style are endearing, and his output is insanely prolific. Within hours of a major news event, he’ll have a detailed, lengthy video breaking down the relevant information. On top of all that, he hosts a live call-in show, from which he’ll derive videos that often ninety minutes in length. It helps that his callers often have entertainingly tragic problems.
