What advice would you give to someone basically starting over at 28 years of age?
I am very much against NSA stockpiling Zero Day attack tools involving widely used software. If they find a vulnerability, they should tell the software developer so that the problem can be patched. If NSA can find the vulnerability, so can Russia and China. It is more important that we have secure networks on our critical infrastructure than that we are able to attack others' systems. This was the recommendation that President Obama accepted from the Review Group on Intelligence and Technology. Clearly, NSA did not comply with that policy.
Good question. Mainly through social media, as well as through the prison system, where Odinism is VERY big. Lots of these guys become Odinists in prison. Most of the Odinists I talked to didn't want to talk to me, or anyone in the media. A few of them did. I'm sure there was some narcissism involved, but also these guys have very set beliefs that they're proud of. They're not ashamed and want to spread their word.
Realize how lucky you are that you are in a position to start over. You're still a baby!! You don't realize how young you'll feel when you're my age.
When you say work your face off/hustle, what exactely are some tasks to do to move your business forward? What tasks can you do to occupy yourself a whole day and feel good that you pushed ur business forward?
I have some sympathy for the British police and security services. They have 20,000 people on their Watch List. When someone is reported too them, they try to check them out, but if there is no evidence that they are planning an attack, the security services can not monitor them closely. Someone can go from being radicalized to being willing to die in a terrorist attack with a matter of days. How can security services know when this state of mind has changed? Inevitably, some attackers will slip through the cracks of any system designed to detect them.
How likely is it that you'll buy the Jets one day? What needs to happen for you to get there?
I think the breadth and spread of racist Odinism. I had no idea it was so prevalent. I had never even heard of Odinism before I started researching white supremacy.
100%. I have to stay alive.
When you think of yourself not as a global citizen, but rather a citizen of a certain group, it is easy to think in subjective terms. Why does it matter that whites were not indigenous to the region? It is not like at the end of time you will be rewarded for following the rules and not encroaching on other's indigenous land.
What are your top priorities in life?
Hey Gary, I'm 19 how do I get people in the fashion industry to take me more seriously?
Yes, but remember the racist extremists are the minority. I would say they have co-opted the religion to their own ends.
By executing. Don't expect anything until you've actually done it. Nobody owes you shit. Look at Kobe and LeBron - they executed and got the attention they deserved. Don't blame it on anything - especially your age.
how do you provide people more value than they give you without being a "pushover"?
By learning how to say "yes" and "no." You're only a pushover if you allow it. Learn how to take, not at the expense of what your giving. I am always willing to give because it is not transactional. I pay attention to the Macro.
