"Free Speech Isn't Free" Book Review

By Jonathan Roseland  Connect    

Free Speech Isn't Free

Free Speech Isn't FreeThis book begins with a treatise on free speech by Quintus Curtius.

He makes the point that we assume incorrectly that society will just get better and better; we assume that we will just become freer and freer, we see the tremendous improvement in human quality of life in the past hundred years of history recorded via grainy photographs, shaky news reel and newspaper clippings and we assume that it's just going to get better but Quintus warns that progress is not our birthright.
It's especially easy for young people with no children to assume that the nature of the world is just get increasingly free over time, barring some extraordinary life experience it's likely that over time all they've personally experienced is their freedom expanding.
We do associate the abstract idea of freedom with our concrete quality of life, consumer choice and the advent of new technologies making our lives more convenient and amusing. Since there is no sign of the Cambrian explosion of consumer options slowing, the idea of freedom contracting seems incomprehensible to most..
But Quintus writes
Time is as much a destroyer as a creator: and perhaps more of the former than the latter.
He makes the case that our society of unequaled freedoms wobbles on a knife's edge and that there is a good chance that human rights will regress within our lifetimes I've long believed likewise that... human rights are antithetical to human nature.
Human nature is evolutionary - of course - and prone to devolve into brutal competition. Human nature is a strong man taking power, money, women and resources from those who he can by sword, law or guile. Human nature is a tribe being fiercely unsympathetic to an out group. Human nature is a syndicate of elites depriving the common people of the fruits of their labor. Human nature is a dictator depriving his people of the ability to defend themselves from their overreaches. Human nature is a ruling narrative stiffling and censoring dissenting voices.
Human rights are not something we deserve by default, human rights are a gift given to us by those before us who paid dearly for them in blood, sweat and ink and it's a duty for us to maintain and pass them on to our own children.
As Quintus writes
Rights, once won, do not remain won forever.

Viviendo en Valencia

Living in Valencia

Barcelona is the Spanish city you probably hear the most about but I'll make the case here why you should go to Valencia instead. First of all, it's such a better value...
I spent about 3 weeks in Barcelona and Valencia seems to have everything that Barcelona does at about half to a third of the cost. In Barcelona a very simple flatshare in a kind of cool neighborhood costs 31 Euros a night, a shitty hostel costs $22 night whereas in Valencia I found that not awful private room flatshares via AirBNB cost $10-$15.
In general the wifi in Barcelona is quiet mediocre, the speeds and reliability are so wanting that it negatively effected my productivity in the time I spent there. Disappointingly, there's just a single real digital nomad friendly cafe in Barcelona. In contrast, the wifi in Valencia is muy buen! At cafes, restaurants, hostels and AirBNB apartments I consistently found the +20mb up/down connection that I need to do work.
If you really want to go shopping at a Prada store Barcelona's the city for you but Valencia is overall a whole lot better value for nomadic seducers.

The Women

Young Spanish women are quiet sexy, as sexy as the American latinas of my native Denver, Colorado, the Slavic barbie dolls of Eastern Europe and certainly sexier than Panamanian or Costa Rican women. On the totem pole of scintillating women they are outranked only by Colombianas from my vantage point.
They don't seem to age really well, most Espanolas over 30 were pretty chunky, they don't seem to maintain their dangerous curves and slimness like Colombianas often do. So much for the Mediterranean diet!
I've met a handful of sexy black Spanish women here actually, if your Starship Enterprise, like mine, is occasionally is drawn irresistibly to explore black holes, I don't think you'll be disappointed here. The Spanish negritas are feminine, skinny and curvaceous unlike the total trainwreck that is American black women.
Young Spanish women speak certainly don't English as well as their German, Bulgarian or Romanian counterparts, but more of them are able to have a basic conversation in English than the almost total lack of English you'll face in Latin America. If you really want to game latinas but don't speak any Spanish, Spain is a better bet than say Colombia.

Belgrade - Smokin' in Serbia

By Jonathan Roseland  Connect    

The city is a nice change of pace from the dreary capitals of Eastern Europe where I've been spending time. The center of city is quiet clean and scenic with the beautiful Sava river, wide pedestrian streets and elegant orthodox churches.

The Women

{2jtoolbox photogallery id:4}

When I lived in South America, other digital nomads would tell me that two cities in the world had the most beautiful women; Medellín, Colombia and Belgrade. Well, yet again Medellín has set my standards so high that other cities fail to measure up. There are some very beautiful Serbian women to be found in swanky clubs, bars and the cosmopolitan shopping district downtown, but the stereotypical knockout, big boobed Serbian beauty is not so common. Young Serbian women are on average skinny and doll faced, booty is a little more prevalent here, but if you are really into curvy women you'll need to head to more further south latitudes.

The City

This hilly grad has a really well developed center; big boulevards lined with trendy shops, cafes and restaurants. I didn't need to use taxis or public transportation much because it's such a walkable city center. For being an aesthetically very cosmopolitan city overflowing with bars and cafes I was somewhat disappointed in the networking scene there; a big part of my game is attending public events and meetups, where it's easy to build a social circle and make friends. There's just a single weekly Couchsurfing meetup that's well attended and a couple of Facebook groups I joined that seemed to put on well attended events. Check out

Unfortunately, as beautiful as the city and it's women are there's two significant issues that I think disqualify it as lifestyle city that I'd like to spend more than a few weeks in...

Seducing Sofia (Bulgaria)

By Jonathan Roseland  Connect    

Seducing sofia

In Sofia I got laid more, got paid more, established better friendships and am leaving with more good memories and lessons learned than the previous cities I spent equal time in. As opposed to crediting this too Sofia itself (herself?) or some unquantifiable metaphysical influence or self help principle, I know exactly why my time there was so productive in all the dimensions that are important to me. I No Fabbed and No Boozed the majority of my time there, I completed 30 Days of No Fap and 90 Days of No Booze. abstaining from these two vices simultaneously really is a synergistic lifehack for productivity and happiness. For a man these two habits really are symbiotic; when I'm No Fapping I'm way more motivated to go out, make friends and meet girls but No Fapping for this long requires serious discipline that is all but impossible if you are a even a moderate social drinker.

The Women

{2jtoolbox photogallery id:2}

Bulgarian women are aesthetically a whole lot closer to my fantasy girl; they are curvier and darker than Ukrainians yet refreshingly elegant and put together compared to the frumpilicious Romanians. A bŭlgarski trotting down the avenue in her heels, form fitting jeans and fashionable scarf could be easily confused for a light skinned Colombiana, until she opened her mouth and spoke quite competent English.
At least in Sofia the women, while not as feminist as say German women, are modern European women;

  • They speak English well.
  • Are eager to discuss their careers and politics.
  • Are mainly none-religious.
  • I don't meet a lot of married young women as I have elsewhere in Eastern Europe.
  • Like latinas you kiss them on both cheeks when greeting them.
  • They don't seem to age very well compared with say Ukrainians, I encountered few women over 35 that were attractive. So if you're considering a long term investment, take a good look at her mother and ask yourself if you in 20 years would be happy with an approximation of that in your bed every night.

Here’s the Daygame and Nightgame spots in Sofia:
