Stefan Molyneux of Freedomain Radio fills this 30 minute interview with a string of philosophical and moral gems. Stefan addresses why the Occupy Wall Street protests will not work, despite however brave and noble the intentions of the protesters may be. It’s important to recognize the interconnected unity of all facets of the government, and the ramifications of giving any organization a monopoly on the initiation of force.

“Government is like heroin – it gives you a short term high, and a long term catastrophe.”

It has taken a while for the mainstream media to cover the Occupy Wall Street demonstrations. Now 10 days into the protests the coverage has begun, but is the media spinning the purpose of the demonstration? Marcel Cartier, a rapper and activist who was at the protests, shares what it was like. He is joined by Chris Chambers, a journalism professor at Georgetown University, to give us some insight on why the media avoids covering the protests.

Ron Paul on Google Trends

It is quite striking when you compare the top graph (google search volume) to the bottom graph (news reference volume). Do you notice any inconsistencies in the two trends…? In the last 30 days Ron Paul has the highest volume of Google searches while simultaneously having the least amount of “news” references. Now what in the world could be the cause of that?

Article Word Count: ~1,460 words

Just for fun, here are the number of times each candidate is mentioned in the CNN article:

Perry: 29
Romney: 21
Cain: 6
Santorum: 6
Bachmann: 3
Gingrich: 3
Johnson: 3
Huntsman: 2
Paul: 1, literally just to say that he existed there (“Romney, Perry, Bachmann and Santorum were joined onstage at the debate by former Utah Gov. Jon Huntsman, Texas Rep. Ron Paul, former New Mexico Gov. Gary Johnson, former House Speaker Newt Gingrich and businessman Herman Cain.”)

Obviously in politics, the flip-flopping, the troubled past, the mistakes are what’s interesting – just as it is in reality tv. As soon as all of the drama is distilled down to a single, coherent, consistent philosophy – you are no longer interesting…to the media.

Oh p.s., Ron Paul is currently leading in every major post debate poll online.
