Hey everyone! Steve’s back by popular demand for part 2. We talk about what he learned from running for office, his dreams moving forward, his thoughts on COVID-19 government policy, and non-alcoholic beers. Hope you like it!
Here’s a show index (give or take 3 minutes).
5:00 – Stephen Harper, how it feels to run, and the Christian Heritage Party.
9:00 – What he’s learned from the process – don’t get started in politics to change policy. He did it to spread a message and to get his name up. He also now has a much greater appreciation for democracy.
14:00 – Running for the Libertarian party – WHY?! Marijuana legalization, pipelines, taxes (aka punishment), drug decriminalization, “last calls” at bars. Potential run for Calgary city council?!
21:00 – Competition between provinces, blockchain, competitive citizenship, US immigration.
33:00 – Going back into politics. Steve’s dream of retiring at 35 years old. The 4 hour Workweek.
36:00 – Future plans: Make Canada the BEST! Solve problems like Saudi Arabia, Hong Kong. We could be so much richer as a country! We should deport unproductive people.
41:00 – Immigrants > native-born citizens. Freer markets make people richer. All businesses are essential… Blockchain solves so many problems!
47:00 – “Is the juice worth the squeeze?” from The Girl Next Door.
49:00 – Change yourself first.
53:00 – Whether it’s worth it to get into Facebook Arguments. Guns. It’s wrong to say that “Americans are gun killers.” Time wasting, being a contrarian.
1:03:00 – Free expression. HustleCo’s libertarian press release.
1:09:00 The Government has taken away our freedoms! Or has it? Fears of freedoms being taken away. The Runnymede Society. Our justice system and how it’s pretty good.
1:22:00 – Control is worse than privacy violations! AB tracing app. Blockchain is perfect for this!
1:27:00 – Is it worth it to be a contrarian?
1:30:00 – What would you tell your old self? Find the other contrarians, try not to get emotional, don’t let it affect you. “Facebook is a mental asylum.” Try not to drink your problems away. Have some humour!
1:38:00 – Trump.
