In this episode, Alec sits down with one of the best all-around dudes he knows, Chris Linscome, to discuss the illusion of authority, governments, voting, voluntaryism, and how we can make real, lasting change in this world.
We both highly recommend checking out Larken Rose’s book, The Most Dangerous Superstition, which you can find here: https://www.goodreads.com/en/book/show/10836816
Chris is a writer, former naturopathic medical student, current truck driver, soldier, husband and father, and truth and meaning seeker. In 2021 he walked away from medical school, unwilling to sacrifice his integrity and principles for an education and medical career. He formally studied Christian history and theology for several years in Chicago and England before deciding on a medical career. While attending Columbia University in NYC for his premedical studies, Chris seriously considered monastic life, staying at a monastery in a discernment process for a brief time.
Eventually, his patriotic impulse led him to enlist in the United States Army, where he served as an airborne infantryman in the 82nd Airborne. Chris started his studies in Classical Chinese medicine and Naturopathic medicine in Portland, OR in 2017 but voluntarily left after the madness of 2020 and beyond.
He has been enjoying a slow and deliberate unbecoming in this season of life while he continues to write and be thankful for the beautiful, unexpected journey.
