The Steady and the Stoic 'Steader

Tonight the Firestarters discuss how adopting a stoic mindset aids in the pursuit of freedom and personal responsibility.

Join Kerry, Thecia, Ken, Nate, and Tim as they explore questions like:

  • Have you ever gotten the sense that you were a slave to your emotional reactions and how did you go about changing that?
  • In most cases, the expression of one kind of emotion is actually a cover for another emotion. As in, anger is usually a cover for fear or sadness. Can you recall a time that you experienced this? How did you address it?
  • How do you handle the general societal push that we should all be “happy” all the time and overcome the entitlement mentality of “But I deserve this!”
  • There is a fine line between stoicism and apathy or nihilism. What steps do you take to be sure you don’t slide down to the “dark side?”
  • Some people seem to feed on giving and receiving negative energy. Have you experienced that on either end? How did you manage it?

Brian Aleksivich built and operated Happy Hills Homestead with his wife Kori from 2014-2021. They have decided to get out of the cold of Minnesota and hit the road looking for a better climate to restart their homesteading life. Brian retrofitted a camper to be completely off-grid and has also started an initiative called The LOTS Project. The goal of The LOTS Project is to build an online space where a federation of landowners can interact with a network of zero and low impact campers. He hopes for big things from this project. You might also hear him mention his 3 giant dogs. His wife Kori runs a social media account for their 3 St. Bernards. You can find all of it at the links below.
