Marcus the Wolf asks… (2:20)
How does a natural man live in an unnatural world?
Big Bri asks… (8:36)
Yo Uncle Vic! Appreciate all your hard work and knowledge. Will we see a Kindle edition of Monk Mode? All the best in 2019 brother!
James asks… (10:11)
Hey Vic, Just wanted a word of advice on how to schedule Monk Mode around my job. I work irregular shift patterns, so sometimes I start at 5am, sometimes I don’t start until 6pm (and usually work up to 10 hours shifts). How can I fit monk mode around this?
Blayde asks… (11:40)
I was living in Florida a few years back while my family was living in the suburbs of Des Moines, Iowa.
On the phone my mother would tell me – “There are chemtrails in the sky. The government is poisoning us.”
I thought she was crazy. In florida I did not see them so I did not believe they existed.
When I went to visit my family a few months later I could not believe what I was seeing.
There were so many trails cross-stitched across the sky, like a quilt.
I studied the sky a bit and would wait for planes to fly by so I could see if they left the same trail. The trails from the planes would stay for 15-45 minutes. The chemtrails would last the whole day.
I noticed something else very strange…
I would wake up with a song playing in my head every day. It could be a song I hadn’t heard in years. That never happened to me before.
Something else I did not like…
Iowa is a farming state and my parents lived in the thick of it. Every single farm I saw signs in the fields that would say “Pioneer” or “Monsanto”. I was pretty oblivious to the world back then and I asked my mother what those meant. She said they were genetically modified crops.
If crops are so good for us, why do they have to have their dna spliced? And how good can something be for us if it’s made in a laboratory?
I’ve noticed that the chemtrails have popped up in places I didn’t see them previously. Ohio, West Virginia, Florida, and Texas.
I’ve been living outside of the USA for over 2 years now and I hope the chemtrails don’t follow me here.
Mark H. Says… (14:32)
After only a little over one week on strict carnivore, my IBS-D symptoms are no where to be found. Would have never believed carbs incl veggies and fruit were the culprits. My energy levels are as good as ever and I have very little gas or bloat. Carnivore = One poops per day or less where previous diet 3-4 poops most days. I have read it is also referred to as ‘Elimination Diet’ which makes a lot of sense.
Jonah asks… (15:28)
Thanks for you reply last time. It was a powerful motivating speech about how the vice are interconnected and monk mode is a war on vices. You have a powerful voice, and I was wondering. Will you would release monk mode as an audiobook? If not, I strongly urge you and would happily buy it. The audiobook is a powerful medium in the modern age.

Steven asks… (18:53)
Hello vic your podcast is so good thank you. I love the way you speak you speak with certainty and authority I’m almost hypnotized when I listen to you. What is the best advice you can give us to speak with people and be respected by anyone? Do I have to speak with a calm, low voice or the opposite?
Brad asks… (21:21)
Vic, ever since drinking raw milk and eating raw eggs and eating cod liver oil I’ve noticed animals have become nicer to me. This may sound strange. Is this just placebo affect or is this real?
NewEmpire asks… (21:25)
Victor, are you familiar with Dmitry Orlov’s 5 Stages of the decline of an Empire?
Do you think the US will collapse like the Soviet Union and if it does will you move?
All of the modern day Russian Oligarchs were created during the USSR collapse because they took possesion of large property/industry i.e. Oil.
Do you see any great opportunists in a collapse?
Jesus Sotelo asks… (23:00)
Hey Vic what is you’re take on wearing a tailored suit every day ,even if you are still a guy in the trenches making a name for himself and not exactly at the top just yet. The reason I ask this question is because I recently got myself a tailored suit just for a job interview it’s all black with pin stripes and sharp shoes with a thin red tie when I out it on I felt an immense feeling a power and authority.
Jacob asks… (24:32)
Hey Victor, What’s the ideal diet for hardgainer, skinny guys?
Zacheriah asks… (25:50)
1) What happened to New World Ronin? I lent my copy to a friend, upon recommending your site to purchase his own he couldn’t find anything. Why is that?
2) What is the best place to live for a month that is cheap and legal for all your red supplements, maybe somewhere raw dairy is legal too so I can really milk the mass gaining benefits during the cycle. I plan on doing this JUST to experience RED GROWTH! will be traveling from Australia.
Hustle of Thoughts asks… (27:44)
Hi. May I ask for your own interpretation on this Japanese concept, ikigai. Only asking it as to see what you can let on for the younger soldiers/struggling artists to understand why passion can be replaced with ikigai.
Rlac asks… (29:49)
Hey Uncle Vic. I have 22 years old and have 20.000$ saved in cash. I want to start an online business with that capital, but don’t know how to use and leverage that money to advance faster or produce higher income from the start. Would like to blog, but don’t know how to invest that money in the start of the blogging business. Maybe buying traffic from the beginning? I need to put this money to produce. Any thoughts on this?
Orestes asks… (30:56)
I found good girl (I tested her in many occasions), but all girls like bad boys. Everybody gives her many compliments, but I don’t. I don’t appreciate her and I win so far. If bigger “jerk” than me appears, she’s gonna fell for him? That’s the reality of relations?
Joe asks… (31:59)
They say that getting what you want is also the death of actually wanting it. Striving for material items leave people feeling empty, hollow, and unsatisfied. The things people buy only bring a temporary joy that quickly fades as the novelty wears off. Aside from independence, freedom, and meaningful relationships with family and friends, what else actually pays off acquiring in this life?
Peitan asks… (32:44)
1) What are your thoughts on homeopathy, the ancient science of the Germans? Whenever I see “educated professionals” and modern pharma dismiss something as a scam, I am more likely to believe it is the real deal, and homeopathy is attacked left and right, though numerous people report amazing progress and curing of incurable diseases with it. I have gas, bloating, and a tight sphincter muscle. Any ideas for relief?
“Homeopathy is based on a rule of nature called the Law of Similars. This law states that “like cures like,” or that a medicine can cure a sick person if it can cause a similar sickness in a healthy person. For instance, if you peel an onion, your eyes burn, itch and water. You might also have a runny nose and begin to sneeze. If you had similar symptoms during a cold or allergy attack, such as a runny nose, watery eyes and sneezing, a homeopathic micro-dose of the remedy Allium cepa (red onion) would help your body heal itself.
The homeopath regards symptoms as the body’s healthy attempt to restore itself to balance. That is why a homeopath will choose a remedy that supports the symptoms—rather than opposing them or suppressing them as in conventional medicine. In conventional medicine, a cold or hayfever sufferer is given an antihistamine to dry up the runny nose and watery eyes artificially. But this medication often comes with unpleasant side effects like sleepiness and constipation. With the correct homeopathic remedy, however, there are no side effects and a person is restored to health naturally.
Homeopathy also recognizes that each person exhibits his or her disease in a unique and slightly different way. That is why two people with the same disease will not necessarily receive the same homeopathic remedy. A cold sufferer with a stopped up nose and dry eyes would receive a different remedy than one with a runny nose and watering eyes. Unlike the “one size fits all” approach to prescribing often used in conventional medicine, a homeopath chooses a remedy that matches the unique symptom profile of the individual. Conventional medicine seeks to control illness through the regular use of medications; if the medicine is withdrawn, the person’s symptoms return. For example, the daily use of drugs for asthma (or any chronic disease for that matter) alleviates the symptoms but does not cure the underlying problem. In homeopathy the ideal is that a person needs just enough of the homeopathic remedy to stimulate their healing response. In other words, homeopathy seeks to cure a person so that they do not need any medications—homeopathic or otherwise.”
Have you ever felt that bloating and gas increase very low back pain? I also notice that when my bowels are perfectly clear, I am abundantly infused with energy regardless of what I eat, and when my bowels are not working properly, even a super clear diet won’t make me feel well. I feel a healthy bowel is the cornerstone of health. What do you do to have full, easy, clean bowel movements? Do you still drink “yakult” like you did before in a blog post? We get fermeneted yakult here in Indonesia and wondering if I should try.
Alec Thomas Quinn asks… (36:45)
Will there be a BnD forum?
Snow Whiteman asks… (37:03)
Hey Uncle Vic, love your podcast. I understand if you can’t answer, but do you got an opinion on World War 2 and nazism?
Stan asks… (37:15)
Are performance enhancing drugs worth it? What are your views on using steroids in general?
Sebastian asks… (38:46)
What do you think of the Amazing liver and gallbladder flush by Andreas Moritz? I think you; ll find it fascinating. Apparently you can expel your gallstones with this method without surgery. This makes me seem to wonder what other kind of home remedies are there on the horizon.
Do you know a good course on how to learn copywriting? And how to learn writing in general for a blog that you would recommend?
Marcus asks… (40:44)
Vic, Ever find it funny how society is completely backwards? I find examples on a daily-weekly basis. However one of the best nationwide examples is the MAGA hat in America.. I mean the hat literally means ‘Make America Great Again’ yet is commonly associated as racist/ fascist and commonly treated with hostility by the NPC’s. I think the picture of the reality in America cannot be painted any better than that .. What is your take on this?
NewEmpire asks… (42:49)
Vic, i recently requested for a some books to be added to Audible so i can listen to them while driving..
The titles were: The Art of the Argument which is now available onsite, The Social Biology of Visual Imagery & Shadow Men.
For Dr Anthony Napoleon’s work the lady gave me this response:
“In regards to Shadow Men and The Social Biology of Imagery – I am sorry to say they’re not available onsite as whoever the publisher sold the rights to has chosen not to produce them into an audiobook. Unfortunately we are unable to access the rights so are unable to produce it ourselves. Many thanks for taking the time to reach out regarding gaps in our catalogue. Have a lovely day.”
Does this sound right to you? Why would he sell the rights or not allow his own book in Audio format?
Ashwin asks… (43:50)
Where do you think creativity comes from Vic?
Jesse asks… (44:54)
Hey Mr. Pride, Would the carnivore diet work for a 17 year old trying to build muscle or are carbs necessary to grow.
Otavio asks… (45:41)
Should we remove the egg whites in the zero-carb diet? Does it contain mostly carbohydrates?
Cornelis asks… (46:12)
A lot of muslim people are coming to America/Europe for a lot of reasons. What do we know about these people and can we learn something from them? I see a lot of them have strong family values, bless their food, no feminism/equality etc.
Bill asks… (47:16)
How can deficiencies be avoided on the carnivore diet, particularly vitamin C? I am concerned as currently I can only afford to eat conventional ground beef, pork, eggs, butter and cheese with a bit of salmon. Will I get scurvy/vitamin C deficiency eating all my meat well done?
Richard X asks… (48:00)
If you were to have kids, whats the oldest acceptable age for the mother to be?
Kang of the East asks… (48:46)
Vic, I noticed that you seem to have a talent for discovering very useful resources. How do you develop an Optimal Resourcefulness Mindset. Can you share your ‘How To Actually Do Research’ method?
Christopher asks… (49:29)
2019 is going to be a year of victory! Hey Vic, How do we ensure that each year is better than the one before? Should we make a detailed plan for the year ahead?
Daniel asks… (50:26)
I need your opinion on an issue. I’m living in Australia and seeing a South East Asian girl. She hasn’t been in the country long and is everything you would want in a woman, and is a million times better then the average western woman. The only thing preventing me from getting in a relationship with this women is her race? What do you suggest?
Until next time.
