Asking the Right Questions with the Gr**t Stefan Molyneux

Stefan Molyneux (none dare call him great) is perhaps the most controversial figure in the libertarian sphere. His political and cultural stances have gotten him in hot water with social networks and set him at odds with many libertarians. You can hear about that drama elsewhere. Stefan is a deep thinker and skilled communicator. I recently heard an interview with him wherein he said he had found success in life by knowing “the right questions” to ask himself. I wanted to dig a little deeper into this.

Stefan and I have very different ways of looking at reality. You’ll hear it throughout this interview. He even playfully (or seriously?) calls me out for using phraseology like “What this means to me…”. Contrary to my reflexive subjectivism, Stefan Molyneux is almost entirely dogmatic.

I think this interview contrasts really nicely with the last episode, where I interviewed professional skeptic LB Muniz. LB is a big fan of Molyneux, despite his skepticism and Molyneux’s small-o objectivism.
