I am the host of Freedomain Radio, the largest and most popular philosophy show on the web – http://www.freedomainradio.com
Introduction
Stefan Molyneux is the founder and host of Freedomain Radio, the largest and most popular philosophical show in the world. With more than 2,500 podcasts, 10 books and 50 million downloads, Stefan has spread the cause of liberty and philosophy to listeners throughout the world.

As the host of Freedomain Radio, Stefan has interviewed experts Dr. Nathaniel Branden, Jeffery Tucker, Dr. Warren Farrell, Janet Heimlich, Peter Schiff, Dr. Peter Boghossian, Dr. Mary J. Ruwart, Stephan Kinsella, Lloyd deMause, Dr. Cordelia Fine and many others.

Prior to launching Freedomain Radio, Stefan built a thriving career as a software entrepreneur and executive. In 2006, he left his work in the tech industry to devote his efforts to Freedomain Radio. Now a self-identified full-time parent and philosopher, Stefan speaks regularly at liberty-themed events all over North and South America. His speeches cover subjects ranging from politics, philosophy, science, atheism and economics to relationships, parenting and how to achieve real freedom in your life.

Stefan is the author of two novels, “Revolutions” and “The God of Atheists,” as well as eight non-fiction books on relationships, government and religion.

Past live appearances include presentations at the New Hampshire Liberty Forum, the Porcupine Freedom Festival, Libertopia, Students For Liberty, FreedomFest, LibertyNow, Capitalism and Morality, LibertyFest West, the Brazilian Mises Institute’s Idieas em Movimento, Freedom Summit, and the Global Escape Hatch.

Stefan has participated in a number of live debates, among them: “The Function of the State in Society” with Professor Vladimir Safatle, “How Much Government is Necessary?” with Michael Badnarik, “The Role of the State in a Civil Society” with Sam Seder, “Conservatism vs. Anarchism” with Jake Diliberto, “Should Libertarians Abandon Politics?” with Ernest Hancock and “Atheism vs. Agnosticism” on Free Talk Live.

In addition to hosting his own regular show, Stefan has been a guest on radio and television programs such as RT America’s “Breaking the Set” with Abby Martin, “Adam vs. The Man” with Adam Kokesh, and “The Keiser Report” with Max Keiser.

The comparison was my own from Jews being known for being merchants and bankers.  If that's antisemitic in your book then I don't know what to say to that.  It was a stereotype comparison(and was addressed to someone else that was doing the same thing with all the other alien races on the show) and nothing more on my part.  But, whether they were Jewish or Yankee or Greek or Dutch, they were portrayed as being not good people and that is totally on Roddenberry for that.

I think people hold Stefan to impossible standard, & maybe that's because he is a know it all, but if any of us put out as much content as he does people would find something here & there not to agree with. I certainly have, but I don't attack his character ad hom, I say what I don't agree with. He's done a lot more to elevate the conversation online than probably anyone while making it entertaining enough to reach a sizable audience. Not talking to anyone specific here, but the comment above has reminded me of several people who have come on & called him a sophist, half of whom probably learned the term watching his show. I've pointed out places where I felt his rhetoric was more sophistry than philosophy but I would never attack him personally because he is genuine in wanting to make the world a better, more just place for us all & is one of very few people who have actually endeavored to do so. You don't have to agree with him but Stef is a good dude. Maybe he isn't omniscient, but he is highly intelligent and well versed on philosophy regardless of what anyone says. Is he a scholar & an expert on all branches of philosophy? No. But he holds his own & he puts out a good show. If you don't agree on something, comment, or put out your own show & see if you can do better. People act like this shit is easy. Banana oil!

is that your response? First you come out with some weak-sauce "challenges" trying to show that you "believe in christianity" and then you don't even acknowledge any rebuttals and ask such a stupid question?

+Stefan Molyneux Sometimes it's hard to understand your agenda if it's not to problemaize things into ridiculousness. This is clearly a woman unsuited for a honest man. All you accomplish by teaching her where she went wrong is making her able to fool a honest man into her net. Absolutely everything about her is shady. Indulgent language and total lack of frame. No resistance like pudding. She is absolutely perfect for that trash man she describes. More generally, why teach people about life? This way you steal the most important part of people's satisfication of finding out for themselves. What you should do is to teach how to teach oneself. The principles for which any question falls. Then let them choose. There is no such thing as one size fits all. To take it to extremes. For some people the best way is not to live their life, but end it.

+Edward M Wolfe True. Where it all lies is in the individual.  In our culture, we seem to spend little time cultivating solid moral values in our children.  We allow them to get away with bullying, we don't teach about the long term ramifications of teasing/taunting/belligerence towards one another other, and how society benefits greatly with the investment of fairness and truth.  We have pockets of this happening, so the potential is definitely there. It's just too insignificant at this point.  The issue is our rapidly grown large scale society has not fostered this.  We need to "reboot" our approach, or sadly... our societies will always be struggling with greed, unfairness, hostility, and exploitation.

Have not been able to enjoy the new films for a host of continuity errors that drive me nuts. But, I appreciate summing up the film this way. As a disabled vet, I bet I would have felt weird in a theater with a fake sci-fi veterans memorial. Not sure about Abrams' Federation, but all the TV series, including the cartoon, had mining companies, traders, and all sorts of business tooling in the galaxy.
