In 1850, Colombat de L’Isere, when discussing the “Change of Life,” wrote the following: “Compelled to yield to the power of time, women now cease to exist as for the species, and henceforward live only for themselves.”3 Fortunately, this pessimistic outlook about menopause has become outdated.

  • Thank You Beau!
    You get me thinking about hope!

    This is an thinking intelligent human being!
    We definitely need more people like this in the world…. Now!

  • How do you reconcile that optimistic view with the fact that there were more leftists in the prewar era, the 20s and 30s, than now and the fact that the global and local left trended towards centralization, authoritarianism, anti-democratism, and anti-internationalism? Is it enough that the consensus moved toward the center after 4 generations? It seems to me like the hope isn’t generational, but might take 5 or 6 generations and that the best ideas are lost to history. It’s incredibly sad the amount of material harm that gets caused in these long periods and the loss of the good the most radical ideas could bring about.

  • Unfortunately, the human race is running out of time. The next pandemic doesn’t care how progressive we are and neither does climate change. Imagine the effects if the next pandemic is 1000 times more lethal than Covid19. Look up the “dry corridor” in Central America and then ask yourself what happens if the entire equatorial region becomes too hot for human survival.

  • This guy didn’t learn Marxism well. One of the few things that are correct in Marxism is that social progress follows economic, not the other way around. Hence, while this guy is correct about growing liberty on a long run, and correct that government is not the answer for more progress, he is ignorant for the true engine of the human progress economic freedom which by default limits the role of the government in economic activities.
    Unfortunately for him, leftists are the major factor in growing role of government in all aspects, therefore leftists are in fact regressive force, not progressive. One of the many words stolen and voided by leftists is progress. Other such words are freedom and liberty. Isn’t it strange that the true progressives, true liberty and freedom supporters had to call themselves libertarian?
    What leftists crowds lack is real economic knowledge, not the Keynessian BS though at school by their leftists professors. Once they read and understand the writings of Ludwig von Mises and other prominent Austrian school founders, then they will be able to rethink what is really progressive and why social progress and justice may only grow as result of economic independence from government, about the only think this guy got right.

  • Good morning ��, Christine you are such an encouragement. Keep going for Jesus. Praying for you and your family. You are such a blessing to the Body of Christ. ������

  • Thing is though and love ur channel. Masks are a statement but should be common sense and respect. It’s so divided and the people at the top want their money no matter how much harm it does

  • It can happen even quicker for small changes. In UK the Anglican church had a vote for permitting women to become priests.
    It was defeated, 10 years later it passed.
    Not even a generation, just a little more time for discussion and a few younger people to come into the field of influence.
    There were also concessions to those who would not accept the female priests and later bishops.

  • So if we go by this logic, then Capitalism will finally fall after only about 400 years, and class injustice will be a thing of the past after oh, several thousand. We just might reach enlightenment some time before our sun explodes? Oh shit, climate change……so much for that.

  • Yes, I see this happening for transgender people like me. I feel it is my “calling” to be “visible” as a trans person so people can come to know people like me in a positive way. Prior generations of trans folk made this possible for me and my generation, and I am helping to make this easier for trans people (and other marginalized people) after me. ��❤

  • #StayAtHomeStrike

    You may hear these words before and you may have not.

    You may care or you may not.

    I hear you and I care.

    One for all and all for one.

    There are no companies and no government without we the people of the world.

    We are many, we are the people of the world.

  • beau is a great example of two things: people who learn from history and the smart man learns from his mistakes, the wise man learns from the mistakes of others.

  • Social Conservatives need to know that the only thing in the world that doesn’t change is the fact that everything always changes.

  • So true! We need to remind ourselves of this.
    Steven Pinkers book “The Better Angels Of Our Nature, why violence has declined”
    was a massive eye opener for me. I’ve always been kind of positive, but that book gave me a cause for being it.

  • “Limiting dependance on the government” is one of two main neoliberal talking points to excuse their austerity measures. (The other excuse is pretending we don’t have the resources rather than lack of the political will; “How are we going to pay for that?”) How would you explain your advocacy for being less dependant on the government and the need for a stronger safety net?

    Do you mean that with an effective safety net people can get back up and off the safety net?

  • Three weeks later, and so much has changed! As of today, tangibly and officially for the better!!! I heard a great quote today, a great thought to contemplate from an unwaveringly hopeful woman working tirelessly with others to change horrid conditions in her part of the world. She was asked, “How do you stay so optimistic?” Her reply, “We cannot afford the luxury of pessimism.”

  • I don’t know what ‘government’ dependence you’re referring to. Social progress could follow economic and political progress, which is what you were talking about in your previous video concerning the people who own Mitch McConnell and by extension, own the government.

  • As someone who has studied and worked in history… I can say you are spot on. For example, people were shot protesting for an 8 hour day and a weekend off at the end of the 19th century, that would be absolutely unthinkable today.

  • Thanks man, u actually speak politics in a way that I can actually get behind. Which is something I’ve probably never said in my entire life ��

  • I came by your posts by accident and was intrigued by them.

    I must admit that I was pleasantly surprised by what I heard in them.
    It gave me hope.

    Here was an American who spoke my language. Calm, reasoned and clearly not seduced by Trump’s cultist crap.

    I hope that there are millions more like you who will halt the mad crash dive of the Trumpists and restore the better parts of the American way of life.

    Surely people will see the lies and propaganda of the Trumpists for what it is; a corruption of all America stands for.

  • When I was your age, I also had your historical optimism. Now at 65, it has gone lost somehow.

    edit: injustice still makes me angry, and I’m still fighting.

  • We’ve passed “peak human”. What we have now is the opposite of progress on every single level of human civilization. The US is unable and unwilling to solve any of its problems. These unsolved problems are also terminal. Sorry,we’ve thrown the vehicle in reverse and floored it towards barbarism.

  • I don’t follow the idea that unjustice and government are linked. Maybe you were talking about the State. Unjustice is everywhere linked to needs and the distribution of wealth. Necessity is everything that is before anything, freedom is everything that follows an action. You are not free when you have necessities. And this is not a binary situation, the grade of necessities you are able to solve before an action is related to the grade of freedom you will feel after any action.

  • As far as social injustice is on the topic there is this weird ebb and flow with its problems with a few constants. There is a change in the air about equality across the spectrum and I see that it is slow, but it’s making positive strides.
    Of course society seems to tackle one issue at a time which tends to make it a slow progressive change, but I’ve had a thought, that if it’s possible to start base with practical standards for education, that generation will be the ones to make a larger stride in the right direction. Maybe even a generation that sees beyond pop political issues and takes a stab at a total reform of how our government is allowed to move within the bounds of its appropriate limitations. But that may be a step too wide, who knows.

    Thanks Beau.

  • Regarding “how I stay calm”… when I see a calm person I know they have made a conscious choice to be their own master. It’s very uncommon to see someone just born calm, though it does happen. Sometimes we make a commitment and immediately keep it, sometimes it takes practice. A calm, even, empathetic person has emotional maturity to the point that outside events stay “outside”. I don’t think you know how rare you are. It’s why you have 253K subscribers. I’m calm, but I’m not hecka intelligent like you, so thanks for what you bring.

  • I think one piece anarchists often miss is that good governance exists, and is often critical to progressive social change. For example, Abolition & Civil rights were dependent on government force. Having a President like Lincoln and a General like Grant, were absolutely critical. Then Johnson set it back 100 years. Federal troops ultimately pushed back against state troops a 100 years later to make it stick.

    I am sympathetic to the desire for smaller government and greater self sufficiency, but we won’t get there without good government being part of the narrative. The narrative that government is always bad by definition plays into the goals of selfish people who know that good government can stop them. And there are always selfish people. Research says 1/3 of people can reliably be counted on to act in their own self interest. Maybe there’s a utopian voluntarist structure that keeps that selfish third in check, but I have yet to see it. In the meantime, we need good government, not no government.

  • My only consolation for this dark period is that even if trump wins, it’s only temporary. It will suck to live through, but the future will return to a trajectory of progress.

  • Dude… to hear you talk gives me hope, the world needs more human beings like you. God bless you and your family.. eres un hombre inteligente y de alma limpia hay pocos como tu en este mundo……

  • I’m struggling to stay positive. We seem to be surrounded in darkness. Any time I see a anti masker it frustrates me. Thanks for what you do.��

  • Well said! All good things take time. It’s good to have this reminder. We are all doing good work by sharing these ideas with family and those we love, even if it doesn’t feel like work. Thank you.

  • In general I would agree on the fact that a society marches toward more progressive values. But humanity as a whole isn’t. When a society gets too progressive too fast, it destabilizes, usually to be taken over by an authoritarian regime. Balancing the preservation of the culture and structure with progression is the goal

  • Thank you Beau. As a trans person seriously struggling in the holding action phase its such a relief just to hear that reinforcements are coming for those of us who can’t disengage. That this isn’t forever. Thank you for giving me some hope today.

  • The problem with this is that we lose entire generations that have to suffer waiting for future generations to have the problem solved. Unless we can’t provide new life or reverse the aging for those who had to live an oppressed life who are wronged by the conservatives here and now we can’t rely on this.
    Conservativism needs to be defeated and crushed in the here and now, no more waiting.

  • I used to believe it, that progress eventually will win out. I don’t anymore. History is full of this shit. One step forward and five back. Empires rising and falling. And the little people always get crushed along the way. Eventually some will make it through, but how many thousands of times does humanity have to do this dance before we wake up? I don’t believe it will happen anymore. You hang on until you get crushed and die. There is no Star Trek future for us. It’s all Game of Thrones. God, I need a drink.

  • Optimism (n): That wonderfull feeling you get when you delude yourself into thinking other people will step up to the plate and hit a home run for your team. While you remain comfortably seated.
    Wanna know what the USA will look like in a few years?
    Brazil.
    Beau is DEAD WRONG about social progressives always winning. Absolutely demonstrably WRONG.
    The truth is the exact opposite. Progressive values may be won, but the victories are always reversed. The battle is constant, tge class war is endless.
    Only massive social change can transform this country. This is thwarted by optimism.
    See above.

  • Hearing your words, is like oxygen to the fire of my soul… more confidence in my convictions while I hold the line. Thank you Beau, you’re the best!

  • Back in the early 1970s, when they were trying to pass the ERA, on of my mother’s friends objected to it on the grounds it would allow homosexuals to marry one another. Mom’s reaction was “So, how would it affect you if every gay in America got married?” She was always ahead of her time.

  • From Wiki: A fifth column is any group of people who undermine a larger group from within, usually in favor of an enemy group or nation. The activities of a fifth column can be overt or clandestine. Forces gathered in secret can mobilize openly to assist an external attack. This term is also extended to organised actions by military personnel. Clandestine fifth column activities can involve acts of sabotage, disinformation, or espionage executed within defense lines by secret sympathizers with an external force.

  • Please know that if we are to ever hope to address income inequality, it won’t be out of the kindness of the hearts in the wealthy elites. It will take the government, and its laws, to achieve it. The rich will NOT give up their wealth easily.

  • So if I understand this correctly, a social progressive would be similar to those that are now being considered “Antifa”? Or is there a difference?

  • Dude, you are a breath of fresh air. Your face been popping up on my Home page forever but I always took one look at the thumbnail, stereotyped you, and moved on. My loss. Something made me click today…binged watched a lot of your videos, and when I watched your Patreon intro video I honestly smiled for the first time this month. Thank you!

  • This is the first thing I’ve heard in a long while that has actually given me a ray of hope. Thank you so damned much. I really needed that. I will definitely continue advocating for socially progressive ideas and working to limit dependence on government. Our family is building a farm with the intention of teaching others to grow their own food while also helping nature to do it’s job to heal the soil and return nutrients to the earth. That’s one way we are helping to reduce dependence on government.

  • Only my 2nd vid I have seen from you, and, as someone who looks very similar to you, I was skeptical of what I was going to hear. I was so wrong and from this video and the recent Moscow Mitch video, I am almost certain I have found a like minded individual who knows how to sift through a lot of the mud in the water, as well as portray it effectively.

    I took a route to my perspective very similar to the discussion of this very, injustice and history. It resonates with my own general person arc with the influences I had in youth vs the history of injustice, and eventually how much started getting closer to home within my own family.

    I think I am a fan, but I’ve already decided I’m going to put you on some of my public playlists.

  • This is good but I’ve been thinking lately about how as global population grows, the powers in control will not want more freedoms for the people but less.
    Government control and tyranny can grow as a result.
    We have to discuss and address that.

  • Ya’ll need to read the 16 year plan which was the plan to take down America. If Hillary had won we would be Socialists. This plan was before Trump ever became President

  • We’ve allowed ourselves to be blinded by all the bright shinny things greedy corporations have puked out in front of US. We can’t even figure out how to wipe our asses without toilet paper…. Everything we pay taxes towards is broken, that’s rather obvious. Can’t figure out how to educate without a building? It’s bad as religion.

    I’m telling everyone that the lucky ones are the dead.

  • Also when policy is created from religion, twisted ideas are turned into Law. Maybe it would be a good thing if law makers would remind themselvs; Separation of church and state. State religion never works no matter who’s God is on the radio.

  • As someone outside the US looking in I see a glaring example of exactly the opposite. How do you explain that abortion is still a battleground in the United States 47 years after Roe v Wade? That’s three generations!

  • You know why they want you back to work so soon? Because with time off thinking and not out spending/paying your way through each and every day it is changing your perspective of importance and spending. They are afraid you will cut your own toe nails, dye your own hair, make your own meals, check what your children are learning, playing with your family, learning you don’t need to pay for services you can and will enjoy without filling the rich pockets and they are afraid if you do it to long it will become a pandemic of the rich not being so rich ��

  • It’s what you can’t see that can hurt as I ventured into life with my father’s words,” Can’t died in the poor house.” Andrew Jackson M.

  • Dear sisters I think it depends on the woman…God has made each woman special with a beautiful purpose…
    I think God bless each woman with a big capacity to reach goals and why not different goals in different areas…?
    God is so creative so wonderful…and we have His image��,so the important thing is to let the Holy Spirit guide us the way He wants to fullfill our purpose here��!!!!!����
