The Covid Character Test, Stoic Nuggets and the Power of Strategic Surrender

Anthony Dufresne Millennial Life Issues, Podcasts Leave a Comment

This week I talk about how effective Covid is at determining whether a person is an aware, empathetic member of society or a toddler. Since the virus is still very unpredictable, none of us know if we could possibly die if we get it. So when someone successfully fights off the Coronavirus, there’s a sense of relief. And you would think they would also gain a higher level of empathy and awareness about how important it is to wear a mask and keep your distance. But unfortunately, there are A LOT of Covid survivors out there that don’t pass the …

Because, once again, my show is about a touchy social topic, there are a lot of people that will never get this post because our social media platform friends can discern between constructive dialogue and hate speech. That being said, I hope, maybe after listening, you would be kind enough to post yourself or at least share with one other person, because the time is now to …

Anthony Dufresne Millennial Life Issues, Podcasts Leave a Comment

This show is all about Why so many people don’t care about facts and How we can change that. I continue to be in shock and disappointed about the current ideology gap that exists in my country right now. It couldn’t be more obvious that one side is built entirely on lies and having a group of followers that are perfectly OK in a world where facts don’t matter. Like I say in the show, I just want to get back to doing podcasts about philosophy and better relationships and balance and awareness. But, given the very scary reality of …
