7 Stefan Molyneux (Freedomradio) : 'The Truth About #Bitcoin'

How to effectively study and internalize a large number of unrelated subjects, both trp and non-trp topics?

I've always been a poor learner, never been good with learning strategies. Always had a procrastination problem too, thinking "I want to learn more about that" but never taking action.
Now, after swallowing the red pill, and perusing the manosphere, I find myself in contact with a lot more learning material. Obviously the bulk of it is trp-related, but there's a lot of things that get brought up all the time in discussions. Then there is material that are rarely brought up, maybe just casually thrown around in a comment, but worth knowing.
For example here are some topics I've come into contact with recently. Some have surfaced as a result of casual browsing on previous topics. Some are full blown topics unrelated to trp, and some just from passing comments.
Take something like feminism, generally antagonized in the manosphere. Someone might make a post that criticizes it. I can understand they're right and upvote accordingly, but I wouldn't be able to make such a critique myself. You then frequently find people, NPC's if you will, who just sound off in the comments with trite "feminism bad". I want to learn both sides, perhaps even able to debate someone on even why it's good, and not just why it's bad. And it's not just feminism, all of the subjects above.
Thanks to trp and the manosphere one has easy access to thought leaders of many disparate fields, but I want to become such a thought leader myself. My reasoning, why be mediocre, uninformed, reliant on thought leaders to analyze issues for me, when I owe it to myself to be as informed and knowledgeable as I can.
I am mainly asking about learning strategies, not so much help with trp. What is the best way to study said knowledge? Notebooks - that's a lot of notebooks. What if halfway through I want to correct previous notes because I got information from the wrong sources? Loose leaf, maybe that would be better. Or maybe set up a personal wiki which I'm leaning towards, but I don't want to be too reliant on technology. It's harder to visualize compared to physical notes, not a dealbreaker though.
Can someone offer thoughts on effective study strategies?

Libertarianism: The FAQ

This subreddit provides a lot of interesting links on libertarianism, but when libertarians and ancaps show up to defend themselves, they tend to get downvoted. Although I am not a libertarian, in the interest of fairness I've created an FAQ on libertarianism where I've tried my best to find libertarian solutions to political issues. For stylistic reasons, this is presented as a dialog between me and a hypothetical libertarian. While obviously this conversation is fictional, I've tried to back it up with links to actual libertarian positions, usually using recent topics in EnoughLibertarianSpam.
WARNING: THIS IS WHAT LIBERTARIANS ACTUALLY BELIEVE.
You're a libertarian? Does that mean you stand for liberty? What are your core principles?
Deregulation, competition, and the invisible hand of the free market.
Many of you seem to have a strong distaste for government. What do you propose to replace it?
Deregulation, competition, and the invisible hand of the free market.
What do you think will end the War on Drugs?
Deregulation, competition, and the invisible hand of the free market.
What is your monetary policy?
Deregulation, competition, and the invisible hand of the free market.
Well, all of that sounds overly naïve and simplistic. I don't personally agree with those stances, but that doesn't mean that we can't find common ground on some other issues. After all, you libertarians say that you care about liberty. Liberty is literally in the name of your philosophy.
I'm concerned about global warming and environmental damage in general. Does your philosophy touch any of these subjects?
Deregulation, competition, and the invisible hand of the free market.
Well, I don't really see how that helps the environment. What about externalities, where some companies can benefit without paying the full cost for their actions? Pollution seems like a good example of this. How does libertarianism provide a framework that prevents companies from profiting by externalizing costs?
Deregulation, competition, and the invisible hand of the free market.
Okay, I see I'm not going to make any progress pressing you on the environment further. How about monopolies, though? Surely your solutions can't apply if there are monopolies. How can we prevent monopolies?
Deregulation, competition, and the invisible hand of the free market.
What about regional monopolies like ISPs? It's not politically possible to let there be a free market in ISPs right now. Do you support net neutrality and if you don't, what is your alternative?
Deregulation, competition, and the invisible hand of the free market.
What about the roads?
Deregulation, competition, and the invisible hand of the free market.
I think I'm starting to notice a pattern here. There are some regulations I like, though! Some laws and regulations provide us with liberties! Let's see if we can find agreement somewhere.
What about child labor laws?
Deregulation, competition, and the invisible hand of the free market.
What about anti-discrimination laws like the Civil Right's Act? How could we possibly as a society address major systemic problems like racism without certain kinds of regulations?
Deregulation, competition, and the invisible hand of the free market.
What about women's rights?
Deregulation, competition, and the invisible hand of the free market.
What about same-sex marriage?
Deregulation, competition, and the invisible hand of the free market.
How about workers' rights? You are opposed to labor unions! How do we stop management from exploiting the workers without some kind of balance against unrestrained corporate power?
Deregulation, competition, and the invisible hand of the free market.
Wow. I'm impressed. Every single one of those positions is a terrible position to take.
What about literal slavery? Mises.org seems to say that you opposed Lincoln's role in the Civil War that freed the slaves in the United States. How could slavery have ended without the Civil War?
Deregulation, competition, and the invisible hand of the free market.
I'm really not convinced. The same book I linked to also seems to say that countries like the United States shouldn't have defended themselves against fascist aggression in World War II. What the fuck was the alternative to resisting the Nazis and the fascists?
Deregulation, competition, and the invisible hand of the free market.
What the fuck? Can't you see that there are negative consequences to libertarianism? One of your leading intellectuals even says that parents should be free to starve their children because it's not a violation of the NAP. How will children be protected in a libertarian world?
Deregulation, competition, and the invisible hand of the free market.
What?! That's the same link I just used! You can't do that! Besides, that link also says that there would be "a flourishing free market in children". Where is your humanity?! How is this at all moral?! How can you possibly justify this line of reasoning?!
Deregulation, competition, and the invisible hand of the free market.
It looks like every single thing that libertarianism is promoting is absolutely morally reprehensible! Please prove to me that you're a human.
Deregulation, competition, and the invisible hand of the free market.
Fuck you and fuck libertarianism.
Deregulation, competition, and the invisible hand of the free market.

Link to original thread
Best YouTube Clip- Patri Friedman destroys democracy in two minutes
Description- Patri Friedman is renowned for his work in seasteading, and in this speech at Mises Brazil, he provides a compelling argument against democracy that all ancaps should keep in their repertoire.

Best Comment- YesYeLibertarians comment on "How would Libertarians Deal With X"
Description- Tired of getting questions from newbies like "How would a libertarian society deal with x if y?", YesYesLibertarians puts an end to all the questions by laying down some truth.
Best Book/Paper- The Problem of Political Authority by Michael Huemer
Description- Although this book featured controversy as to whether or not it was written/published in 2013, it publishing date was close enough to 2013, and it got an overwhelming number of upvotes. I have not personally read it (I know, I know), so it's hard for me to give a description, but I've heard its fantastic and you (and I) should read it.
Redditor of the Year- throwaway-o
Description- The award is given to this magnificent man "for defending bitcoin from threats to it's fungibility, neutrality and decentralization. Particular from Coin Validation but also generally by debating statists in /Bitcoin and other subreddits."
Biggest Advancement within the cause of Liberty- Cody Wilson's Liberator
Description- 3D printed guns went from fantasy to reality when Defense Distributed, a 3D printing firm notorious for designing weapons and weapon parts, successfully designed a .cad file with all the necessary parts for a fully operational printed handgun. It's badass, and scares the shit out of our government, so much so that they took the file down, but not after thousands of people had secured it, copied it, and shared it around the world. 2013 was truly the "Dawn of the Wiki Weapons".
Best Quote- Jeffrey Tucker's elevator pitch for Liberty
Description- Asked what his elevator pitch for liberty would be in a recent AMA, Jeffrey Tucker, arguably the most lovable figure in the liberty movement, replied with a magnificent answer, which ended in this great quote.
