Seeking Truth

James Altucher’s recent podcast episode with Norm Dworman hits on a variety of topics but the essence of the episode is really in the last fifteen minutes where they discuss the tone of the world, censorship and what the next steps are. Just the other day, I was asked about choosing sides and it was a very difficult decision. Not because it’s a right/left scenario but rather that there are no true right vs left sides anymore.

So good luck Kevin!
