Ben Stone the Bad Quaker and Michael W. Dean drop Part Nine in their 36-part series, “Adopting and Adapting the 12 Steps, 12 Traditions and 12 Concepts of World Service of Alcoholics Anonymous to treating the disease of Statism, the disease of clinging to bad ideas, and the disease of clinging to bad people.”
Michael and Ben give their experience, strength and hope on Step Nine: “Made direct amends to such people wherever possible, except when to do so would injure them or others.”
The Freedom Feens have no connection to Alcoholics Anonymous and are using the 12 Steps, 12 Traditions and 12 Concepts of AA in the open-source way that AA allows, as long as it is made clear there is no endorsement from AA.
New Feens Co-host Hugo González sneaks across the Internet borders from Mexico (via FeenPhone) to try to steal radio jobs from hard-working patriotic American conservative talk show hosts MK Lords and Michael W. Dean. Lombrices!
Topics include The Oscars, patriotism, film, AnCaps, libertarianism, voluntarism, minarchists, why audio media is better than video media, and why Michael is glad cell phone cameras didn’t exist while he was out sewing his wild oats back in the good ole days of sex, drugs and punk rock.
“I have no problem with small-gov libertarians. They’re just AnCaps who haven’t yet left the larval stage .” – Freedom Feens.
Michael W. Dean and Lousander Feen talk about a bunch of stuff, including why any show with the title “The Truth About…” is probably a mixture of opinions, agenda, and incorrect statements.
Also, why Lou says Tom Woods is a really good guy, but Michael says Tom Woods is not a great man because Tom was so damn wrong in his “shoulder thing that goes up”-level understanding of AA in the harsh critique of 12-step programs in his episode called The Truth About the Rehab Industry and 12-Step. (Lou recommends this Tom Woods video as an antidote to that show.)
Ben Stone the Bad Quaker and Michael W. Dean imitate two old coots sitting on the porch discussing mortality. They do the show they’d do if they knew they were going to die tomorrow. It’s a heavy episode, with some fun and a bunch of redemption in the third act.
“Do everything as if it’s the only thing you’ll be remembered for.”
–Michael W. Dean
MK Lords and Davi Barker do some live radio with Derrick J. They’re all experience liberty journalists, but Michael W. Dean feels that it’s important that people do live radio to a show clock with people other than Michael W. Dean. (Michael took the night off to clean guns, eat a bowl of sugar, and grade the show live as it happens. He gives everyone an A+).
