Drawing Back the Veil on Universal Truth | the tao of skwealthacademy podcast, epi_025



In today’s The Tao of SKWealthAcademy Podcast, Episode_25, I discuss the problems of our global institutional academic system that allow me to have more rational discussions with a young child and well-rounded martial artists than adults with advanced academic degrees. I discuss why children that have not yet been processed through the academic system are much more open minded than adults that have earned Bachelor and Master degrees, and why philosophical elements of the martial arts of being, knowing and doing promote critical thinking to a greater capacity than exists in general society. I also explore why sound money principles are so widely misunderstood today with even self-proclaimed sound money advocates forwarding a lot of misinformation about sound money on social media. I also discuss why basic facts like the color of the sky, the color of a polar bear’s fur and the definition of gravity are still widely misunderstood in the modern world and I discuss why the inability of many in society to have disagreements with others in a civil discourse without engaging in angry ad hominem attacks is a sign of the downfall of intelligent civilization.  Finally, as I forgot to provide my financial tip of the day in this podcast, my patrons know that predicted BTC’s top price to be $20,000 (it was) at the end of 2017, and that it would be halved in price to $10,000 at that point (it was). After BTC dropped to $10,000, my patrons know that I predicted BTC could be halved in price a second time to $5,000 (it was, and actually fell below this mark to $3,000). With BTC at about $3,750 a couple of weeks ago, there is a far better chance, if it hits $4,000, that it will drop to $1,000 before it will rise back to $10,000 in price, in my opinion.

What Question Did a NYC Teacher of the Year Winner Say He Was Shocked that Parents Never Asked Him? the tao of skwealthacademy podcast, epi_024



In today’s The Tao of SKWealthAcademy Podcast, Episode_24, I discuss the motivating factors behind my creation of skwealthacademy, its launch timeline, and my hopes to create a global community with the common goal of improving many educational aspects that have been nearly universally stripped from the academic institution and classrooms worldwide today. As well I discuss what question a NY City Teacher of the Year winner said he was shocked to hear asked of him only one time by a parent in his decades of teaching. (Correction: In my podcast I mistakenly stated that this NYC teacher was John Gatto, but it was actually NYC teacher Frank McCourt, the Pulitzer Prize winning author of Angela’s Ashes.)

Are We Truly Free? | The Tao of SKWealthAcademy Podcast, Epi_014



In Episode 14, I discuss whether living an entire life within pre-constructed societal constructs that not only constrict our choices in life but also severely limit our creative potential and our ability to manifest our greatest selves in life is truly living life as a free human being.  If you lived in a tiny island nation state that represented the middle of the pack in everything – technology, human rights, economics, resources, and education – and were told that you could roam anywhere you wanted to within a 10km region of the island but never anywhere else and also never leave this nation to explore the other 192 nations on planet earth, would you feel free? Yet, this is a perfect analogy for how most of us lives our lives when we voluntarily choose to constrict our choices in education and in career from age 5-years-old to age 65-years-old.

Why I’m Leaving YouTube for Steemit and Patreon | The Tao of SKWealthAcademy Podcast, Episode_009



Today, I discuss my reasons for leaving youtube for the greener pastures of steemit and patreon (www.patreon.com/skwealthacademy) and leave you with a long philosophical discussion that covers many topics including bitcoin, cryptocurrencies, banking, morality, the importance of pursuing careers that don’t exploit others but that only uplift humanity, the global refugee crisis, the policies of the State that are used to divide us and to dissolve our unity, and the hidden agenda of academia that destroys critical thinking. Enjoy and please consider becoming a patron to receive exclusive content in the form of podcasts and articles every month! The first exclusive content, released on 25 June, are a lengthy article that discusses many potential reasons why bitcoin’s price has plunged 70% in the past 6-months and that should provide an intelligent foundation to speculate on future price, and a podcast that reveals 2 questions one can ask anyone to reveal the massive faults of institutional academics today, including its misguided focus on memorization of facts and high exam scores.

Introduction to The Tao of SKWealthAcademy Podcast



Allow me to introduce the essence of The Tao of SKWealthAcademy Podcast. My podcast is focused on breaking out of the artificially engineered constructs of society designed to dumb us down, such as institutional academics, strict career paths, and chasing after superficial constructs such as fame and fortune instead of sustainable constructs of far more substance such as happiness, inner peace, friendships and humanitarian activities. Please take a listen to this 6-minute and change introduction and subscribe if you find it mysterious, curiosity-inducing and intriguing!
