Thanks chycho. You have a very soft relaxing tingle-inducing voice.

Paul McCarthy says:

I’m surprised Saudi Arabia wasn’t mentioned in most dangerous countries.

The books that influenced me the most are as follows:

1. the foundations of leninism and marxism and the national question by Josef Stalin.

2. Imperialism the highest stage of capitalism by Lenin.

3. all the shah’s men by Kinzer

4. on contradiction by Mao Zedong

marsneedsheroin says:

Much respect for the RAW recommendation. One of my favorite authors.

Ajdin Ekmescic says:

im a right wing libertarian (yay capitalism) & I recommend :

Hazlitt- Economics in One Lesson
Jonathan Haidt- Righteous Mind
Murray Rothbard – Egalitarianism as revolt against nature
Milton Friedman- Free to Choose
Robert Taylor – Reactionary Liberty
Anything by the philosopher Nick Land


Baldy Grey says:

You know it’s a funny thing, in my younger days when I was in school I considered myself more left leaning, now that I’ve seen what the left has become and having amassed a lot of capital of my own volition and years and effort of hard work, combined with the sad and pathetic state of the left today with their never-ending identity politics I can say I am definitely more “right” wing. But that’s not to say I’m not a free thinker either, I just want to mind my own business, enjoy my hard earned money and be taxed as little as possible with the minimum level of government surveillance. And you know…this is the essence of “true right” anyway.; the sort of have your guns out and your pants down with your beer on your porch sort of freedom that the American dream was predicated on, and I say this as a Canadian in Ontario but a man can still dream and observe.

Carry on brother man Chych

Robert Crandall says:

Can’t talk about politics without talking about economics, can’t talk about economics without talking about Capital. Still as resonant and important now as it was 150 years ago when it was published. Sure, the academics and capitalists have picked it apart and argued with a lot of the predictions, but I think it’s something worth studying if not reading outright. David Harvey has a publicly available curriculum for it:

As always, thanks for the video Chycho! Days of Destruction might be my reading material for vacation next month.

wobbwobb says:

can you talk about what makes a country find growth, is it increased consumption, investment, saving? all of the above? what is what?

Bobby Reebok says:

he’s like an old Serj Tankian (it’s a compliment).

chicken cluckersen says:

Math now read how can I fit this stuff in my head, ♤♡◇♧

Rachel Von Ravenstein says:

“Days of Destruction, Days of Revolt” is so great. It hit me hard, but it’s a great read.

Jorge Serrato says:

I absolutely love your videos (: thank you

Pistol Pete says:

Such a relaxing video Chycho! love the color of the walls in that room you’re in, very soothing and peaceful just like your voice my brother!

Eduardo Alencar says:

i wish i was into reading books, i just cant find one that can hook me

Kyle Ward says:

For a time Atlas Shrugged inspired my political perspective, but as I’ve gotten older I’ve realized Ayn Rand was kind of a twat.

Elle Cats says:

yay a new chycho video

Jason Roche says:

Sounds interesting, thank you.

God Loves Comics says:

Dunno if you’ve seen it, but I highly recommend the documentary Best of Enemies, about Gore Vidal and William F. Buckley’s viciously erudite televised debates in the 60’s and 70’s. There hasn’t even been any debate like that on television before or since, and at one point Buckley the arch-conservative finally snapped and threatened Vidal, famously saying:”Now listen you queer, stop calling me a crypto-Nazi or I’ll sock you in your goddamned face and you will stay plastered.” The documentary was on Netflix, but you can see that quote on Youtube

Beardy Josh says:

Gore Vidal is a wonderful choice. Love your channel, keep up the good work!
