Kindness of strangers.

Ever amusing, the court jester of philosophy strikes again. In his recent video https://youtu.be/zDEea9I7U3E, Molyneux claims to not do the precise thing he is doing around 13:20--"I have never relied on the kindness of strangers." As a matter of course, he refuted his own assertion ahead of time around 6:05 by panhandling. He's made the same case before, saying that what he does has real objective value, and deserves support; But I haven't heard him put this asinine reasoning so baldly before. In any case, it works, proving that some perverse imp governing human stupidity has not lost its sense of humor.

Typical of him and the people who listen to him, I think.

The best explanation I see for this level of confusion, in listeners at least, is high anxiety. Most likely from PTSD-like effects of childhood abuse and neglect. That's how I make sense of the fact that I could get fooled by his facade, in 2009-11. I'm interested in other likely explanations, if anyone has any!
