I chose Yeonmi as the archetypical dissident for this tier because she represents the incredible power of Freedom of Speech. Freedom isn't free. It needs to be fought for every day. To not realize that some wish to take your liberties away is to live in a fallacy. Look at the world. Look at history. Remember.

Where will the money go?

Sky King's Mental Playground is a subsidiary of Modern Stoa Limited. This means it is a for-profit company. We believe in building for-profit media business models that can result in more sincerity in media. With that being said, we are really on a mission here. The role of my life is to build systems that increase the opportunity for media incentives that lead to outcomes that society would benefit from. This includes knowledge, love, freedom, truth, critical thought, and more.

With that in mind, we will be taking 25% of all the revenue and using that outside of the company. We will be sharing these numbers publicly, and the paying listeners will have the opportunity to participate in some of this decision-making.

  • 20% of all revenue will be used to angel invest or give grants annually to disruptive and innovative media companies trying to create business models around media that do not include advertisements. When we become large enough, I want this to look similar to the Thiel Fellowship.
  • 5% of all revenue will go to a different non-profit organization each quarter. There will be opportunities for the audience to participate in the selection process, not for profits.

The rest of the revenue will pay the operating expenses, upgrade the quality, pay the team, grow the show, and pay me.
