Subscriber giveaway and Miami visit
Win a 10" Bronze Yoda Bust + Access monthly lunch hangout with Stephen Kent
Good evening friends and fellow travelers! I wanted to take a minute to let you know of a few fun things going on in my world + This Is The Way. At the end of this email, you’ll find information about a little giveaway we’re doing for subscribers.
First, this Friday-Sunday I will be in Miami for LibertyCon, an international gathering of activists and freedom fighters pushing back against authoritarianism and collectivist movements worldwide. It’s always a great time. I’ll be moderating a debate on NATO and hosting a panel called Profiles In Tyranny: Magneto, Thanos, and Darth Vader.
The topic of the discussion will be how these popular characters embody the “righteous mind,” so often connected to villainy. There’s a lot to be learned about freedom/tyranny from Magneto, Thanos, and Darth Vader.
If you’re nearby or passing through Miami, you should come! With promo code KENT you can get 50% off registration for the conference.
If you live in Miami or will be there, please email me, and let’s do a This Is The Way coffee meetup.
Second, I am going to be taking on an exciting new challenge of being an advice columnist for Soigne’, a brand-new fashion & culture magazine hitting the market this October. I’ll be offering readers some tips and answers to their questions about life, wellness, relationships, and politics. No pressure, but if you wanna support this venture (a fashion/culture mag devoted to free expression) — You can do that here.
Ok! Fun stuff! The Living Star Wars store is now open. It’s full of awesome Philosophy-Star Wars-Virtue apparel inspired by what we do here at This Is The Way. Mugs, tumblers, hoodies, and shirts.
Just FYI: This Is The Way subscribers can get 20% off everything in the store with promo code: THEWAY
This bronze 10” Yoda Bust below was made in part by yours truly. A good friend in Florida 3D printed this nice, heavy piece and sent it to me for detailing and painting. It’s gorgeous. And it can be yours! I’m going to send this out by mail to one Paid Subscriber. A second-place winner will receive How The Force Can Fix The World and the THINK T-shirt.
Make the switch from Free to Paid and you’ll be entered into my drawing to win this amazing piece of art. Current Paid Subscribers don’t need to lift a finger. Thank you for your support of This Is The Way. Y’all are amazing and give me so much energy week in and week out to produce this newsletter.
I'm also going to begin a new tradition for our Paid Subscribers: First Fridays Lunch! I used to do something like this for Patrons of my podcast, and it was always such a delightful time. On the first Friday of every month, I will have a Zoom Room open for Paid Subs at 12:30PM EST (so morning coffee if you’re out West) to hang out, meet, chat, discuss the issues or whatever is going on the world.
I personally prefer lunch hangouts on a weekday to after-hours stuff. We’re all busy, but in theory, almost all of us take a lunch break. Paid Subscribers should expect an email from me this week about getting this new perk started.
Thank you all, and let’s go have a great week. This is the way.
