Ep 41: Atlas Shrugged, Bitcoin & Objectivism with Tomer Strolight

from Wake Up Podcast by Aleks Svetski | Published 5/1/2021

Tomer Strolight, host of the "For the Love of Bitcoin" Podcast, and writer of the brilliant "Why Bitcoin" series on Medium joins me on the latest Wake Up Podcast, In this episode we take a look at Bitcoin through the lens of one of the most powerful philosophers to have ever lived; Ayn Rand. Her philosophy or framework of thinking is known as "Objectivism" and is in many ways the basis for much of the Libertarian thought and Bitcoiner thought many of us align with today. Her seminal works, Fountain Head and Atlas shrugged (especially) have been inspirations for some of the greatest leaders this century, including the likes of Steve Jobs, Nick Szabo and the Cypherpunks. The Galt's gulch she discussed is the basis of the "Bitcoiner Citadels" idea, and the heroes of virtue and principle in her book are the archetypes which Bitcoiners naturally embody and whose values we adopt. This is a fantastic chat, and I urge you to pick up and digest as much of Ayn Rand's work as you can. It will profoundly impact your life, perhaps more than any other work ever written.

The world is largely asleep. We're living in a time where our freedoms are slowly being encroached upon, but because we're addicted to mediocre bullshit, we ignore it. Our money no longer represents our work, time or effort, the freedom to speak out is obstructed under the guise of "diversity, inclusion and safety", privacy is no longer respected and surveillance has become mainstream "for our protection". Wake up is dedicated to helping ensure V for Vendetta and 1984 remain works of fiction. Topics will include Bitcoin, Money, Freedom, Philosophy, Psychology, Science, Ethics & more
