Intellectual Rebel Podcast
In this category of the blog, I plan to discuss real-life “Intellectual Rebels” (Truth Tellers) featuring people both past and present who I feel my message correlates well with, and who I feel lived and promoted TRUTH in an enlightening and/or positive way that stimulates GOOD THOUGHT, LOVE, and/or JOY in the videos I will feature of them. This does not mean the people featured here were perfect or “saints;” furthermore, know that I have NOT read and researched their entire biographies; so, if you are not fond of someone mentioned, then know I am just referring to them in the video links mentioned. Just as I quote notable people from all professions and walks of life in iSin: Upgrade To Life 2.0, you will find the people featured in this category to be a VERY DIVERSE group of individuals. Without further ado, I bring you my first “truth teller,” George Carlin.
Truth Teller: George Carlin
(*Explicit Material*) Mr. Carlin on Political Correctness (Euphemisms)
(*Explicit Material*) Mr. Carlin “Pro-Life is Anti-Woman”
(*Explicit Material*) Mr. Carlin on Global Warming
Personally, I love George Carlin. His unique perspective and the spectacular delivery of his material truly makes him one of the greatest stand-up comics of all time. I deliberately listed the 3 above videos to show how “his truth” crossed political lines in that he makes the case of being “Pro-Choice” (a more liberal point of view), not being a believer of “Global Warming” (a more conservative point of view), and not being a fan of “Political Correctness” (a more conservative point of view). This leads me to the point that NO COMMON BELIEF SYSTEM is ALL TRUE with no faults, and I am referring SPECIFICALLY to POLITICS (Republican or Democrat) and RELIGION (being a believer in God or not believing in God); with that being said, just about EVERY COMMON BELIEF SYSTEM does have some truth and good beliefs in them; most importantly, ALL COMMON BELIEF SYSTEMS are NOT EQUAL in that MANY COMMON BELIEF SYSTEMS do have much MORE TRUTH and GOOD in them than others. At the end of the day, if you believe strongly that something is TRUE and GOOD for you, then do not be afraid to research the POLAR OPPOSITE belief system from yours; furthermore, I advocate for you to seek out the POLAR OPPOSITE view point from yours, research it, and contemplate it as you will find that 99% of the time the PURE TRUTH lies somewhere in between two POLAR OPPOSITE view points, and you should always want to be SEEKING the TRUTH, YOUR TRUTH!
