Tulsi Gabbard, Jocko Willink and Joe Rogan discuss US politics. And it was an awesome debate! Finally a politics discussion without malevolence.
These hyperpartisan times we live in are tearing at the fabric of humanity; dilating people’s egos to avert pattern changes, and dividing some over ludicrous issues. Let’s not forget that media is the cheerleader of these conflicts because conflict is good for ratings! We are better than that.
Few take away snippets
The gov is not a great solution to most of our problems. The solutions are balanced.Jocko Willink
Everything is broken down into little sound bites. You are either pro this or against that.Jocko Willink
It’s like if you believe yes and I believe no then I will attack you. Who cares about Political belief alignment when we can have so many things in common (surfing, training martial arts etc…) and still hang out.Jocko Willink
Our ego pins ourselves into a corner. We should be looking at other people’s perspectives to understand where they are coming from.Jocko Willink
Every News story that comes out is… “THIS IS THE END OF THE WORLD!”Jocko Willink
America is stronger than one man!Jocko Willink
We think that some news event that we can fully understand in an hour or a tweet. We need to let these things develop and see where the actual long term effects are. We can’t be snapping judgement and making split decisions when we need to assess what’s really going on. The press is just snap decisions, snap decisions.. very comical.Jocko Willink
