3RT:2 – Star Trek Republican

Last week I shared my personal history and how it informed and informs my worldview. This week we talk about how a particular part of my past — my love for Star Trek — informs my vision of the future. To give us our best shot at boldly going towards this future, we’ll need to maximize our human capital to enable our best and brightest around the globe to create new technologies and new ways to organize society for the task.

3RT:1 – Introduction!

Welcome to the first episode of Three Right Turns! Here I make a case for what I want to say on this new platform, and why you might be interested hearing about politics from my point of view. I talk about my cultural, political, and religious background, and how it has informed my beliefs in philosophy in the past down to present day. Then I outline the objectives for 3RT; introducing progressive political and economic ideas and policy to audiences more right-leaning than myself, encouraging political engagement, and refining and sharpening my own belief systems. If you’d like to take me up on any of these offers, please email me at 3RT@swizzbold.com. You can also talk things over with us at reddit.com/r/swizzbold!
