Robert Stark and I Interview Zoltan Istvan on The Stark Truth

Since I support transhumanism, Zoltan probably comes the closest ideologically to my views on a wide variety of issues. He’s also a great guy. The main area where I don’t align with him is of course over immigration. In the interview, he seemed to advocate for a future with no nations or borders but also some kind of mass surveillance to ensure that immigrants are being productive while they’re here and not up to no good. I probably prefer the exact opposite. I’d like strong borders with very minimal immigration, while maintaining a very open and limited surveillance society *within* the nation. Just don’t import problem demographics and you hopefully won’t even have to watch over people as much. Also, for the most part, only esoteric Whites and Asians are interested in movements like transhumanism. It’s hard to believe that if you bring in millions of Somalis or Syrian refugees that they are going to vote to fund these sorts of immortality and bionic enhancement projects. Still, Zoltan is an interesting guy, and he would probably be my second choice for president among the available candidates.

Robert Stark and I Discuss Las Vegas Culture on The Stark Truth

Robert and I recently went on a trip to Las Vegas and decided to do a show about it.

You can listen to it here.

It was a great trip, but I wish I could have stayed longer. It was extremely hot during the day to walk around. You can cover a lot more ground and see more in the winter. My girlfriend and I are considering moving there near the strip(such a romantic place for a couple to settle down!) In all seriousness though, I love Las Vegas and have always wanted to live there ever since I saw Diamonds Are Forever when I was a kid. My favorite episode of Charlie’s Angels is the two part season premier(Season 3?) featuring Dean Martin. He has a memorable line at the end:

“He’s been playing ‘Don’t Pass’ and ‘Don’t Pass’ is for non-believers. Sabrina, sooner or later, you have to be a believer.”

I’m not sure how it relates to anything specifically, but I always found it inspiring…in the sense that pessimism and negativity are smart bets, but sooner or later to win you have to be optimistic about something.

Of course, I also own every episode of the mostly forgotten yet highly underrated late 70’s show, “Vega$.” I highly recommend it if you enjoy any of the old private investigator shows like The Rockford Files, Charlie’s Angels, Magnum P.I. etc.(why were there so many in the 70’s and early 80’s?) Also…Robert Urich, RIP. What a great actor.

Discussing Futurism on The Stark Truth

I went on the Stark Truth podcast again to discuss Italian Futurism and a number of related subjects. The podcast is available here. We covered a lot of ground, but I don’t feel like it was one of my better episodes, mainly because I had just driven home from wherever I was to make it in time to immediately call the program. I wasn’t prepared for a couple of subtopics that came up. It was still a good show though.
