The Fountainheadache.Title: “The Motivation Manifesto”

Author: Brendon Burchard

Rank: 82

Blurb: “The Motivation Manifesto is a pulsing, articulate, ferocious call to claim our personal power. World-renowned high performance trainer Brendon Burchard reveals that the main motive of humankind is the pursuit of greater Personal Freedom. We desire the grand liberties of choice — time freedom, emotional freedom, social freedom, financial freedom, spiritual freedom. Only two enemies stand in our way: an external enemy, defined as the social oppression of who we are by the mediocre masses, and an internal enemy, a sort of self-oppression caused by our own doubt and fear.”

Review: “It’s a deep look at our inner psychology — what holds us back and how can we rewire our brains to break through our fears to live daily in a fully charged and inspired state.”

Footnote: If your only external enemy is social oppression by the mediocre masses, and not actual oppression by the armed and uniformed masses, what are you complaining about?

I pitied the one who had no talent till I met one who had no doubt.

Apparently, The New Republic imploded over the weekend. I was surprised to learn that it was a “liberal” publication.

Hey Lefty, Leo DiCaprio, occasional spokesperson for my organization, reportedly got into a dispute with his gf at some club and walked out in a huff — with 20 women. Because that’s how we roll in the non-profit world.

It’s about as liebrul as CNN which as we know isn’t. I’d describe the mag as more “Pompous and Self Important.”

@¡Andrew!: Sully would call it classical liberal, then bore you to tears with a discourse on Oakeshott.

Not mine — maybe TNC’s — but someone tweeted that Sully-era TNR liberally entertained arguments across the spectrum whether Blacks were stupid when debating The Bell Curve.

Me, never read it. NYRB & LRB were as far as I went in that direction.

@Dodgerblue: Darling, you do understand that actors are mostly delusional? But movie stars – Caprio, a person of very modest skillz – are batshit crazy.

@nojo: Since 2003-ish, I kept confusing them with The National Review. A blindfolded test revealed that they’re both bullshit.

@Benedick: The only movie I like Leo in is Inception. But then, he plays an asshole.

@Benedick: I know nothing about actors, but I have met Leo’s mother a couple of times and she is as charming as can be.
