Dear Radical Honesty Family,

This is Brad.
I have gone crazy.

It was bound to happen. Now that it has, I have a little plan I want to tell you all about and ask you to help with and even though some of you will think I am crazy (which, of course, I am) I am really happy to tell you about it (further evidence that I’m crazy).

With your help I plan to die and be born again. Literally, I mean. Metaphorically as well. But the literal part is the most interesting.

In a little over 2 ½ years, on September 8, 2020, at age 80, (like Bilbo Baggins did when he was a little older) I am going to throw a party and retire from being in charge of anything. The Center for Radical Honesty will continue and be my metaphorical ongoing life. Between now and then I’ll be working to hand over the running of the whole business of Radical Honesty Enterprises to some of you and some folks we haven’t met yet.  It is my intent to have hundreds of people making a good living as Radical Honesty Trainers.While you all are coaching and instructing and supporting people, both live and online, and teaching them liberation from their own minds and how to enjoy living in their creation of a play-filled blissful life, they will be using our teachings and the minds they just escaped from as twisted sculpting tools of progress! And you personally will be gratified, rich and happy in that process!

FREEZE!

As many of you know I have a cryogenic freezing contract with the Cryonics Institute. I have put up a 35K life insurance policy to pay to be frozen when I die, stored in Flint, Michigan, and then brought back to life when science becomes capable of thawing and restoring me. Some time, probably in the next 5 or 10 years, I will die and be packed in ice, then dry ice, then have my blood pumped out, then be lowered into liquid nitrogen and cooled to minus 180 degrees Fahrenheit.

All I have to do is stay cool and try to keep cool and then stay cool after they thaw me out. If all works out I will be awakened, my memory mostly intact, probably sometime within 5 to 30 years after I die the first time.  (If you want to know more about the details of the cryogenic plan, write and we will send you a copy of the project write up. It’s called, “Come Again??”)

“Have you gone completely fucking crazy Brad?” Yes, of course I have. And now I am revising not only how crazy I am, but how I am crazy. It’s a little cold hearted but a lot of fun! You may remember my first TED talk two years ago was from Transylvania! This kind of insanity could turn out to be the key link to give YOU, dear reader, a way to make a living, happily, your whole life, helping thousands of people over the course of hundreds of years and maybe even saving humanity from devouring itself until a little later on…

Whether this literal plan to be born again works out perfectly or not, my legacy and you might still dance. If what we set up together in this next couple of years works it doesn’t matter much if I come back literally or not! You guys can keep me alive like l have been doing for Fritz and Abe and Erik Erikson and Paul Tillich and Soren Kierkegaard and Milton Erikson and many others…by passing forward what they gave me.

Here is the story at this early stage of our shared delusion of grandeur:

We have over 35 certified Radical Honesty Trainers now and plan on having 15 or 20 more before the end of this year, a hundred or so by the time of my retirement in 2020, 200 by the time of my death, and 300,000 by the time of my resurrection! This extended life for Radical Honesty plan starts in a few months in 2018. Here are a few things already in the calendar for the near future:

  1. We are having a Trainer’s Training in Italy in June to teach and certify more people to be Radical Honesty trainers, and we will be having a second one in the U.S. toward the end of 2018, and we are open to requests and offers on the date and location you might like. 
  2. Also this year we’re having our first annual Unconvention of Radical Honesty Trainers and Trainer Candidates. We expect to continue this on an annual basis for the next 100 years. I plan to be there to celebrate my 180th birthday with many of you and your offspring. This first Convention of Radical Honesty Trainers, Trainer Candidates, and friends will be in Florida, the last week of February or the first week of March, 2018. We will let you know when and where soon! The cost will be around $400 for three days and 4 nights. Please come help us build the future designed to benefit you and hundreds of thousands of other people! 
  3. Both the Trainer’s Training and The Unconvention meetings, I am hoping, will prepare us for people other than me to take over the management aspects of running radical honesty enterprises I have been doing, and do it better. 
  4. I have written and am publishing another book, made up mostly of selected parts of Practicing Radical Honesty called Co-Designing Your Own Destiny. It needs one more edit, and will be complete by September. It is the text for our  advanced course, tentatively named now, How to Plan Like Crazy and Live in, and Die from, an Insane Life! Consciously! Doing What you are Destined to Do, with no Choice, On Purpose! How to make the most of Slavery! Fate! You can’t Beat It! But you can Beat off on it! 
  5. John Rosania and Lindsay are working on building our new website with help from me and Tony and a few others. We will have it up for review in the next few weeks. It is really great and we can’t wait for you to see it! 
  6. We are having our Trainers Collective video call on Saturday, where we will discuss all this and more! Lemme know what you think of this and any suggestions you have!

Yours truly, your coach and friend in planning how you want to go crazy, and how we might all do it together, like a real cult! Love, Brad

P.S. Here is an exhausting but not exhausted list of friends and allies of Radical Honesty. There are Allies in our Alleys and Alleys in our Allies! We are getting a lot of help creating a beautiful future.

I got a certificate for wreckless driving. I put it on the wall and was proud of it! Good for me! All that driving without a big wreck! After it was there for a month I realized it was a ticket for reckless driving! Shit!

This little story, a figment of my imagination, is kinda the way my whole life has been.

I’ve been pretty reckless and at the same time pretty wreckless! It turns out there is a good path in there where less than perfect is just perfect…where being careless and now and then a little careful works out. Anything worth doing is worth doing poorly! Lots of us have been modeling that successfully and it works pretty good, most of the time! And now, a lot of us are doing that together and creative lives are blossoming and a context for love is being generated and we are on a mission from God to save humanity from itself! I am so happy so many Radical Honesty Trainers are running workshops and support groups and ongoing communications with people and spreading the word!

And now here are our most recent rewards for imperfect living and relatively wreckless dribing! We have made great strides in supporting each other and impacting the world imperfectly, yet positively, since last February:

  1.    We’ve certified over 20 new Radical Honesty trainers and conducted over 30 Radical Honesty Workshops in Europe and America in the last 8 months.
  2.    During that time over $80,000 was generated for Radical Honesty teachers.
  3.    Radical Honesty has been translated into Czech and is on track to be translated into Russian, and a new translation of Radical Parenting and a retranslation of Radical Honesty into German happened this year and sales of both are strong.
  4.    Radical Honesty book sales have increased by a third over the last six months. (Donald Trump has been a great poster child for the wonderful life of lying!)
  5.    Now we’re in the middle of a thorough revision and upgrade of our website. John Rosania and Lindsay St.Antoine are the main ones in charge of that, and Tony and Fred and Dima and others are all helping out with other projects.

Our next horizon is a clean up of our world-wide communication network, so that Radical Honesty can continue to expand. That is what we are asking you to help with now, in two or three different ways…

Location, Location, Location
Because we’d like to send you all emails that are targeted to you and folks in your specific area, we want to know your location. Will you please email lindsay@radicalhonesty.com and simply type your name, the name of the city, state/province, country in which you live, and the email address that you’d like us to continue to use for you?


Radical Honesty International Couch Surfing & Networking Community
As another part of this upgrade, and to enhance contacts/closeness between Radical Honesty people around the world, we’d like to grow our Bloomin’ Humans Network so we can meet, talk, travel, share stories, and practice Radical Honesty while saving money and expanding the joys and benefits of Radical Honesty as we travel. To become a part of this International Couch Surfing and Networking Community, follow the simple steps outlined on our site, here.

Attention Radical Honesty Trainers
Lastly, Radical Honesty Trainers, to support RH expansion in your area, please contact your email list of friends and associates who have attended one or more of your events and ask them if they want to subscribe to the Radical Honesty Rag mailing list, in order to be kept up to date on events, podcasts, and writings about Radical Honesty in the world, and then forward their emails to us when they respond if they want on the list. You can share your list by emailing lindsay@radicalhonesty.com. Thank you!

Thanks for helping!

I have given up on the idea of retirement (except for the joke “I got tired once, and then I got tired again…it’s called re-tirement…”). I have not given up on working less and playing golf more, though. So I guess I will still retire but do an imperfect job of it!

Love,  Brad

I’m so happy that all of these great people have worked with me to become Radical Honesty Trainers, and that they’re so enthusiastic about practicing Radical Honesty in their everyday lives, and in a workshop setting with all of you. I hope you’ll take them up on their offers and join them for a workshop- there’s nothing like the experience of coming together with other truthtellers and sticking together, face to face, telling the truth for the duration of a live workshop- it’s just SENSATIONALLife is just sensational when life is just sensational! I think we’re all gonna create amazing things together.

Love, Brad

P.S. Master Trainer Taber Shadburne and I will be leading a few more workshops in 2018, including the Trainer’s Training that we’ll lead together in June, and these workshops will be added to our site once we’ve made our plans. We’ll also let you know about these workshops in future newsletters, as soon as we’ve got them on the calendar.

We’ve been Cursed with a Blessing…

…and Blessed with a Curse! And We’re So Lucky!

What a life! What a world! What a time to be alive! What a fine time to offer a way through to what is missing in billions of people’s lives. Like Imagethe song says, “What the world needs now is love, sweet love.” And we know something about love. We have books and workshops and trainers and people who love out loud who know in their hearts and bodies and heads that the pathway to love is through revealing what is so with openness and vulnerability, namely, Radical Honesty.

Here is a summary of the work in the world that Radical Honesty Trainers have brought about, and are bringing about in the near future! Bless our hearts!

Stay tuned for Trainer’s Training details.

I really think the world is coming our way!

ImageWe have been practicing and looking for and looking at people practicing Radical Honesty for years now, (AND WE KNOW HOW AND WHY IT WORKS!). We get that Radical Honesty is the key to intimacy, and that intimacy based on honest sharing is the very source of happiness between and among people. Furthermore, We completely get, as Amanda Palmer said, “…when we really see each other we want to help each other.” *(quoted on p.232 of Talk Like TED” by Carmine Gallo)

Getting this simple but profound idea and experience of honesty, both at the same time, are critical to not only our happiness but the kind Imageof thinking necessary for our very survival. When we really get each other we fall in love with each other, help each other, and we want to work together to help others do what we are doing. The headlines of what happens when people who have got it together get together, show up in a sequence, like this:

  1. People who help each other want to keep helping each other and help others: love gets passed forward through open, vulnerable, honest sharing.
  2. Honest sharing between and among people connected at the heart, is key to the emergence of a greater love toward other people. (So then we have to learn how to tolerate joy, then how to enjoy joy! Most of us don’t know how to do that, but we can learn from those who do.)
  3.  Heart connected thinking triggers an ongoing, evolving, co-hearted, co-intelligent, co-operative, mutually shared genius (which is needed to save sapiens from themselves, and support our evolution into a loving future instead of a dead end street.)
  4. This leads to more nourished, less damaged people, less damage to children, and to more “loving genius groups” that form and reform and cooperate as tag teams in running the world for the benefit of all of us.

AND we have Donald Trump and his friends and family out there as poster children for lying and hatred and a sociopathic lack of empathy. What better model could we have for showing people what not to do and how not to live, and revealing Korporate Kannibalism and greed for what it is? Bless our poor little God damned hearts!

Radical Honesty Master Trainer Taber Shadburne just sent me these two magnificent links, below…where these great performers reveal how they are performing as honestly as one can. I love it!

How to Sound Smart in Your TEDx Talk

Thanks for being here with us!

ImageLove, Brad and the Crew

Yuval Noah Harari is an Israeli historian who has written two books about how human beings, once much less significant as a minor species in central and north Africa, have, in the last 70 thousand years taken over the world. We did it, he says, because we are the only species who can cooperate in mass because of our ability to believe things in large numbers and line up together for common causes. This unique skill has been the key to us taking over the world.

Here is the link to his TED talk and references.

We have created together, over the last few thousand years, legal fictions of various kinds to act according to, as if they were reality—things like nation states, borders, alliances, marriages, divorces, etc. We have done this because of our ability to believe the same things together and act accordingly in large numbers.

Though professor Herarri is brilliant and charming and must be right, his news is not all good news. Ability to believe the same thing at the same time en mass, is also the ability to be deluded together. Beliefs are often found to be wrong. And to act according to our beliefs is often to act in opposition to contrary beliefs of other large groups of believers. And this results in religious wars and their equivalents, large and small, that have raged all over the planet for thousands of years.

I, personally, have put in a lifetime helping people get over believing in beliefs and ultimately over believing in belief, itself, altogether. I have been a clinical psychologist in Washington, D.C. for over 35 years (where I became an expert on lying, of course—who wouldn’t living in that place and being a therapist for lawyers and bureaucrats). I am the author of the nationwide best selling book Radical Honesty: How to Transform Your Life by Telling the Truth, (now published in 14 languages) and a series of 7 other books on pretty much the same topic.

The therapeutic work I do with individuals, couples, families, groups and other collectives…works—because people who are being honest with each other, and get to know each other authentically through Radical Honesty, work their way through to forgiveness and renewal and everyone feels a hell of a lot better having gone through that process.

By far the greatest mistakes and tragedies of human interaction among people who know each other come from holding back, hiding, being careful not to reveal what is so, keeping secrets and lying.

Because of the rightness of Yuval Herarri’s beliefs about the power of people holding beliefs in common and acting in common, we need to talk about the vice imbedded in that virtue. Sometimes groups of people act against other groups with different beliefs.

The belief groups that win are not always the best. But we muddle along. Bloodily, wastefully, stupidly, vigorously ignorant and lying like hell, belief systems evolve, devolve and revolve as we go on.

Honesty is powerful in resolving conflict and renewing burnt out cults of liars, and changing dysfunctional beliefs, for a while, into more functional ones. Still, I do not recommend honesty all the time.

Every time I smoke a joint I don’t call up the local Sherriff and say, “Hey, I’m smoking marijuana over here. I just thought you would like to know.” And, as I have said many times, if you have Anne Frank in the attic and a Nazi knocks on the door and asks, “Are there any Jews in this house?” lie to the sonofabitch. I am not an idealist. I am a pragmatist. And I am not a fool. I recommend Radical Honesty because it works pretty good most of the time, creates and then resolves conflict, relieves and reduces suffering, etc. And it is the only thing that allows us to check with each other, dependably, to see if or when we are crazy—even though checking with each other when we are all crazy, doesn’t help.

Honesty among people related to each other who have conflicts, works because the process of getting over shit is not blocked by withholding. People who give up the resistance that causes the persistence of problems, have things come and go, rather than persist. And they get over things by feeling their way through to completion and forgiveness. Lying simply doesn’t work as well to get satisfaction, even for the person who appears to “benefit” from a lie, because they know they are the con artist who fooled the other and they can never get over anything and move on.

There are lots of ways to lie. But withholding is the most pernicious form of lying. To just not mention what you think or feel or know—keeping it secret—is the most poisonous form of lying there is. This is true in intimate relationships between people, in families, at work and in relationships in general. Withholding is the poison that sickens and kills relationships. Love doesn’t just die. It is replaced. And often it is replaced with hate that comes from idealistic lying.

Meanwhile, politically, economically, and governmentally, secrecy is elevated to a station of high honor. The CIA and FBI are our great protectors. People who categorize what we can know and share and what we cannot, are elevated to positions of authority, respect and wealth. We are supposed to keep secrets for our national security. Why?

Why can’t we be honest with people we don’t know personally? Why should we think that government itself would be an exception to the general rule that honesty is, (among known enemies and friends) in fact, the best thing to try among strangers? Why can’t we have honesty work on a larger scale?

Why do we have almost 30 known secret agencies in our government? (and a few secret, secret agencies as well!) How in the hell can you have a democracy when people cannot be allowed to know what the fuck is going on?

I have something to say to Trump supporters and Bernie supporters and everyone in between. Whether you are a Democrat or a Republican or one of those Dempublicrats (Dem public rats!)— Secrecy is lying. Protected lying is deadly, on a large scale, sucks, kills, kills the wrong people, fucks up the world, kills other species and will kill almost all of what now lives on earth, including humankind.

In human interactions secrecy kills. Secrecy ruins things. Lying through withholding is much worse than bothersome, shocking or painful revelations. You can get over being hurt by the truth.

It is much harder to try to learn to see in the dark. “Security” is code for a protected lie. Secret agencies lie and are created to lie. Withholding is lying. Secrecy is not only not necessary in 99% of instances in which it is protected, secrecy is the greatest block to the resolution of conflict and the primary cause of further conflict.

The CIA is bullshit. The FBI is bullshit. The other 24 or so military and government “security” agencies of the U.S. government are all bullshit. The politics of secrecy, the arguments of when it is and when it is not justified are also all bullshit.

Diplomacy is not an alternative to war, it is the primary cause of war. Diplomats are not heroes they are liars who create war. You cannot trust any agency that has not only permission but a requirement that it lie to you by withholding. And we are supposed to fucking be grateful for it! “Yes!” They say. “We are here to protect you! And you should be grateful for it!”

Corporations that kill for profit are protected by organized liars within and political and economic legal institutions without. These institutions exist to protect thieves and murderers from having to tell the truth and deal with the consequences.

So we have two sets of hearings in Senate and House committees? One open. One “top secret”. Am I the only one who wants to shit in my hand and throw it at them when they do that?

We protect the right to be lied to. It is our collective Stockholm syndrome. The secret agencies beat us up and abuse us… and we say “They didn’t hurt us. We just fell down the stairs and they really love us and they don’t abuse us” and we heap praise on our abusers for protecting us.

We are damned fools. We are idiots to even put up with secrecy because it defeats the possibility of democracy at all, much less count it as a blessing. The pundits never question the bullshit “work” of the sacred secret agencies. The biggest conspiracy of all, the biggest contradiction of terms, is “Secret Service.” Secrecy is not a God damned service.

The history of the United States as preached by politicians and patriots and teachers and many historians is total bullshit. The history of the United States, like the history of the World, is not a series of wonderful events with true sacrifice and love for others and star spangled wonderfulness but rather a shit storm or subjugation, theft, domination, enslavement, murder and sequential mass hysteria by selfish, insensitive, stupid, cruel, cowardly, perverse, murdering, lying motherfuckers.

One of the greatest developments of our current political times is the uncontrollable, wonderful breakthrough of “leaking.” People reveal information that is supposed to be kept secret to protect people who kill and maim for profit, who kill through withholding, who keep secrets that kill people and get paid money for doing so. Leaking makes me happy. Leakers are heroes. I say if you get pissed off, take a leak. Bless your heart!

Thank God for Donald Trump! He is one of the dumbest fucking liars of all time and therefore the potential savior of America and the World! Donald Trump is a hero because he is an incredible fool and even shit -for -brains dumb asses who are almost as ignorant as he is can see what a lying stupid sonofabitch he is. He works at it. And he doesn’t know when to quit and he can’t stop and he can’t be stopped by anyone else or by learning anything new. Leakers are heroes because they are tired of the Stockholm syndrome and they are not putting up with it anymore!

Capitalism is coming to an end. It is dying. It’s death will kill millions. Those of us who survive the guaranteed world wide economic crash coming up real soon now, will eventually have single payer healthcare and a temporary almost end of protected lying.

And maybe, just maybe, for a little while, before we run into the next little hidey hole of some new secrecy or other for “protection”, the truth will set us free. But not for long because people can’t stand freedom. So we will arrange to become slaves again as soon as we can. (But don’t tell anyone that. Keep it a secret. It is true though, that the truth sometimes will set us free, every now and then, and then we will volunteer for slavery again by trying to preserve it by keeping a secret, or making a special secret.)

There is nothing like a mind. It can turn shit to gold and gold back into shit again. I am telling you right now, secrecy is shit. Never forget it. And it stays that way until you tell the truth about it. Please do us all a favor and admit to your ongoing contribution to bullshit to replace coming forth with the truth.

Steven Colbert asked Louis C.K. “What do you think of Donald Trump?” Louis C.K. said: “He’s a lying sack of shit!”

YOU’RE A LYING SACK OF SHIT! JUST LIKE DONALD TRUMP! ADMIT IT!

I am talking to you now, dear reader. If you don’t know that you are a phony, or if you won’t admit that you lie like hell all the time, automatically, almost unceasingly, don’t waste your time reading any further. This is an article for and by occasionally recovering chronic liars…people like you and me…that make up most of humanity. We fortell the doom of humanity because of our great human power to enter into common delusional systems (cults). And we have a better alternative to our learned life as usual (heading pell mell for meltdown) –the life that proceeds directly from the guilt ridden Judao Christian tradition of moral righteousness in defense of secrecy and lies and bullshit.

The Alternative to Lying

Take a look at this video footage from our cult’s online course, “How to Get Over Shit and BE Happy” These are people who are at the very beginning of the process of admitting how much they exaggerate, withhold, act phony, manipulate and hide out while at the same time playing like they are coming forward with the truth.

And finally, here is an authoritative quote FROM THE ONION (One of the most HONEST FAKE NEWS sites in the world!)

CLEVELAND—During an unexpected moment of clarity Tuesday, open-minded man Blake Richman was suddenly struck by the grim realization that he’s squandered a significant portion of his life listening to everyone’s bullshit, the 38-year-old told reporters.

A visibly stunned and solemn Richman, who until this point regarded his willingness to hear out the opinions of others as a worthwhile quality, estimated that he’s wasted nearly three and a half years of his existence being open to people’s half-formed thoughts, asinine suggestions, and pointless, dumbfuck stories.

“Jesus Christ,” said Richman, taking in the overwhelming volume of useless crap he’s actively listened to over the years. “My whole life I’ve made a concerted effort to give people a fair shake and understand different points of view because I felt that everyone had something valuable to offer, but it turns out most of what they had to offer was complete bullshit.”

“Seriously,” Richman added, “what have I gained from treating everyone’s opinion with respect? Nothing. Absolutely nothing.”

According to Richman, it was just now hitting him how many hours of his life he’s pissed away listening intently to nonsense about celebrity couples, how good or bad certain pens are, and why a particular sports team might have a chance this year. The husband and father of two said that every time he’s felt at all put out or bored by a bullshit conversation—especially a speculative one about how bad allergy season was going to be—he should have just turned around, walked away, and gone rafting or rappelling or done any of the millions of other things he’s always wanted to do but never thought he had time for.

At various points throughout the day, Richman could be heard muttering to himself that he couldn’t believe he was almost 40 years old.

“Twenty minutes here, 10 minutes there. It all starts to add up,” said Richman, who sat down and figured out that between stupid discussions about favorite baby names and reviews of restaurants in cities he’ll never visit, he’d wasted 390 hours of his life. “And you know what the worst part is? It’s my fault. Here I thought being considerate to others by always listening patiently to what they had to say was the right thing to do. Well, fuck me, right?”

According to Richman, he started thinking about how much time he’s flushed down the toilet being an approachable person after a work meeting in which he let a coworker, David Martin, ramble on and on with an idea everyone knew was “total shit” the moment the man opened his mouth. Richman said that a single glance at the clock made him realize he had just spent 14 minutes of his finite time on earth not playing with his kids or being with his wife, but listening to garbage.

“It was like I stepped out of my body and saw myself actually listening to this man’s worthless drivel—but it wasn’t him who looked like a moron, it was me,” Richman said. “I was nodding my head like an asshole and saying ridiculous things like, ‘Right,’ and, ‘I see your point, Dave,’ when I should have just said, ‘Dave, your idea isn’t good and you are wasting our time and you need to shut up right now.'”

By his estimates, Richman’s receptiveness has resulted in 160 irreplaceable hours of listening to grossly uninformed political opinions, 300 hours of carefully hearing out both sides of pointless arguments, and at least a month of listening to his parents’ bullshit about how important it is to be open-minded.

Eighty days have been wasted on the inane blather of his college friend Brian alone.

“All those hours I could have been relaxing, or reading all these great books, or getting into shape, or working on side projects that I’m really excited about,” Richman said. “But instead I’ve been listening to overrated albums recommended to me by my asshole friends.”

“Did you know that in my life I’ve listened to five days’ worth of people talking about their furniture?” he added. “It’s true. That’s a trip to Europe right there.”

While Richman has vowed to cease being open-minded to absolute horseshit, acquaintances reflected on his approachability.

“I love Blake,” coworker David Martin said. “He’s such a good listener. A lot of people are closed-minded and self-absorbed, but Blake always makes an effort to hear where I’m coming from. The world could use more people like him.”

O.K. folks! We are all ignorant, consciousless, conscienceless cultists. We are just like Tronald Dump. We swim in an ocean of bullshit. We are drowning in it. It may already be too late to do anything about it. Start now to do what you can.

I believe we have to change these beliefs. And we have to start using beliefs like Kleenex napkins or toilet paper…use one and throw it away. Blow your nose or wipe your ass or get over your religion…and throw the fucking beliefs away.

That’s it. Start learning and practicing Radical Honesty for a while until we come up with something better. Radical Honesty is a roll of toilet paper.

Love,
Brad
