How can you build pathways of knowledge and understanding with others, rather than confrontations leading to tragedies?

On this episode of Liberty Under Attack Radio, I am pleased to welcome back Darrell Becker from Voluntary Visions to attempt to answer that question. We play three clips from the School Sucks Podcast:

What you will find in these clips is an example of what not to do, if you are trying to build said pathways of knowledge and understanding with others; “quick thinking” is utilized, there was seemingly little to no effort to find clarity, the word choices were questionable at best, and we can see potential tragedies arise–the example from the clips is obviously less serious, but more dangerous scenarios have (and will continue) to inevitably surface.

Darrell and I analyze each clip individually and try to ascertain just what the hell happened and how “we” as individuals can turn these failed opportunities and tragedies into successful, meaningful, and productive human interactions.

Questions For Darrell, #QFD 001: The Cascade Failure of Certainty

Greetings, viewers! This is the first installment of Questions For Darrell.
This episode is an exploration of humility, curiosity and flexibility, guided by a discussion about the personal beliefs that were changed due to new evidence and ideas being discovered.

MP3 Audio:

“What conclusions did you once hold as firm, unyielding and did not audit or question?”

Thank you so much for joining us again, Darrell, for our inaugural episode of Questions For Darrell. Today we’ll be having a comfortable and hopefully thoughtful discussion, by asking each other questions. If anyone watching or listening to this have a Question For Darrell (or Morgan or Katie), please contact us through our websites, Facebook, YouTube, or just Tweet #QFD @wikiworldorder.

Darrell Becker looks through the intellectual lenses of the Trivium method of critical thinking, Voluntary Communication (a.k.a. Non-Violent Communication, NVC), the Non-Aggression Principle, among others, in hopes of creating internal and interpersonal emotional and intellectual equilibrium. He is also a licensed acupuncturist living on the Big Island of Hawaii, and working on his book with the working title, “The Language of Choice”. You can find all of Darrell’s valuable work for free at!

Morgan Lesko has both been and activist and writing computer code most his life, and has been trying to study and find solutions in our crazy world quite seriously since 9/11. You can find his studies, efforts, and creations at

Katie Stone is also a long-time drug policy reform activist who is wrapping up a masters in Transformative Leadership at the California Institute for Integral Studies. She is also starting her own social business to educate the new cannabis industry on ways to improve their environmental (and financial) bottom line- you can find that at

Last month, the three of us had a nice discussion about what we saw and felt in the days following election season’s finale. It was a delightful way to more frequently have the kind of conversations for which we sometimes schedule cross-continental time. It was also very therapeutic for us to work through some thoughts with your good company, so thank you again for collaborating, and thank you for tuning in!

One powerful idea we discussed was to share humility with more people while we are trying to build bridges of mutual understanding and empathy. One strategy you suggested was to internally acknowledge (or openly share) examples of things you’ve changed your mind about. It’s a reminder that “being wrong” about something means you’re winning the learning game. We all do it, we’re all uncertain, so let’s just try to have fun figuring it out together.

So we’ll start there with you, Darrell, with your more precise words… “What conclusions did you once hold as firm, unyielding and did not audit or question?”

Darrell Becker is a frequent guest of many podcasts that I like, often talking about the Trivium method, the Non-Aggression Principles and Non-Violent Communication. In this episode we talk about the basic ideas of Non-Violent Communication, work through real world examples of using it, and other related questions such as that of enemy imagery.

My episode on the key ideas of NVC is at
