I’m one of those wannabe stoic types. Guilty. And yes, I watch stoic videos on YouTube.
Isn’t that such a silly thing when we think about it? YouTube should be the last place on earth a person should learn stoicism. Just getting on YouTube is entering a world of distraction and emotion and nonsense.
Or maybe that’s the way. After all, Ryan Holiday seems to think so.
Now, I wouldn’t necessarily call YouTube a “trial,” but as “The Social Dilemma” has noted, it ain’t easy to navigate this online world.
