Stefan Molyneux


«Empathy is the sunlight to the vampire of culture.»

«There's a huge swath of humanity that has developed verbal abilities to extract resources from guilt-ridden people.»

Stefan Molyneux


«All we think about in the cycle of violence is men.»

«Awkward silences rule the world. People are so terrified of awkward silences that they will literally go to war rather than face an awkward silence.»

Stefan Molyneux


«SCREW CHILDREN!»

Stefan Molyneux


«I never really grew up until I had kids.»

Stefan Molyneux


«The paralysis of potential is essential to the manufacturing of victims.»

Stefan Molyneux


«The moment I realised that my history was an excuse for nothing, was the moment I was freed from my history. The great danger of history is that we use it as an excuse and remain trapped in it. I cannot blame my history for anything, and therefore I have to have high standards for myself.»

Stefan Molyneux


«Culture makes lies plausible through exposure to time. It makes prejudice seem like physics intergenerationally. It is therefore the most dangerous opponent of philosophy, because it feels the most credible to the average person.»

Stefan Molyneux


«Distraction serves evil more than any other mental state.»

Stefan Molyneux


«Guilt is a feeling that you owe a debt that you're not paying.»

Stefan Molyneux


«Sanity is not about confrontation. It's about filtering. Having a stable and happy life is about saying "no" to crazy people, not about inviting them in and then hoping that confrontations are going to make them sane.»

Stefan Molyneux


«The ones who are insane enough to think that they can rule the world are always the ones who do.»

Stefan Molyneux


«We've got this weird dysgenic situation where we're basically just paying idiots to breed and taxing intelligent people to stay away from each other with anything remotely resembling fertility.»

«Successful relationships are those relationships were conflicts are successfully resolved and in fact peoples intimacy, closeness, and love are enhanced through the resolution of conflicts. I have always become closer to my wife and to my friends when we have conflicts and work through them successfully because conflicts will always arise. They are an opportunity for intimacy, self-knowledge, and a greater connection.»

Stefan Molyneux


«Deep pockets and empty hearts rule the world. We unleash them at our peril.»

Stefan Molyneux


«Being loved means; are disagreements welcome in my relationships? If you cant disagree with someone then you live in a tyranny and if you live in a tyranny then you are only loved to the degree that you erase yourself and conform to the irrational expectations of bullies. That isn't love obviously.»

Stefan Molyneux


«To be yourself is in many ways, is to be inconvenient to others. Only placaters and appeasers get along with other people all the time and that's not really getting along with anyone. That's just self erasure.»

Stefan Molyneux


«We raise predators by treating children as prey.»

Stefan Molyneux


«Rights" are something made up by governments to make you feel like you're buying something with your taxes.»

Stefan Molyneux


«We are haunted houses of history.»

Stefan Molyneux


«When people encounter the free market and they recoil or react negatively to it, they're merely confessing that voluntaryism, trade and negotiation are foreign and threatening to them, which tells you everything about how tragically they were raised.»

Stefan Molyneux


«Can social progress be made without government?»

Stefan Molyneux


«Knowledge is responsibility, which is why people resist knowledge.»

Stefan Molyneux


«The woman who left abusive husbands in the 60's and 70's improved the institution of marriage because men now know that women can leave their husbands and the women or men who stay in abusive relationships are a massive advertisement to non- consequentiality of abuse.»

Stefan Molyneux


«Improving the world can be a nasty and ugly and difficult and dangerous business...because when you improve the world, you threaten the entrenched interests of evil people.»
