86 – FwTK: Don’t Ask Ideology to Be Your Identity

Today we take a few Ask Isaac questions and dive into the problem of asking your ideology to be an all-consuming identity.  Political philosophy needn’t be life philosophy, religious beliefs needn’t be aesthetic preferences, networks built around one thing needn’t serve every other thing.  You’ll probably end up a perpetually frustrated crusader if you don’t realize this.

Thanks to David Richelson and Leonard Marino for great listener questions!

  • How to tell the different between stuff you hate and stuff that challenges you in a good way?
