We have been socialized to do just about everything opposite of what’s natural for living beings. Why do we seem to hate the very natural essence of ourselves? This is evident simply by observing how most of us seek to alter as much as possible about our natural selves. On this episode of The Axiom Amnesia Theory, Heit & Cheri touch on issues related to memory, how society views employment, and current events.
Topics discussed include a 15-year-old Black boy who was denied addition to the heart transplant list, Corey Booker winning the Democratic nomination for the New Jersey senate seat, the CIA finally admitting that they have been snooping on Noam Chomsky, people not being able to connect the dots between principles and the practical application thereof, whether having a job is natural, how society views jobs, paper books going out of style, memory, and more!

- Discussion about hot weather and how people survived without air conditioning.
- Discussion about a 15-year-old Black boy who was denied addition to the heart transplant list because of his “noncompliance”. After the story went national, the hospital had a change of heart. They even mentioned his grades as part of the reason. Have they even considered the psychological component of receiving such a diagnosis at a young age.
A 15-year-old Atlanta boy went on the waiting list for a heart transplant two days after his family complained he was unfairly rejected because of past failure to take medicine and show up for doctor’s appointments, his family told a TV station Tuesday.
Anthony Stokes has an enlarged heart and could have less than six months to live without a transplant, his family said. Relatives told Atlanta television station WSB that Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta Hospital had reversed course and added him to the waiting list Tuesday.
The family did not say why he was uncooperative, and the hospital would neither confirm nor deny the reason, citing patient privacy.

“As we stated previously, a heart transplant evaluation is an ongoing process based on the patient and his or her family’s ability to meet specific transplant criteria,” the hospital said Tuesday. “Our physician experts are continuing to work with this family to establish a care plan and determine the best next steps for the patient.”
Stokes’ mother, Melencia Hamilton, told the television station two days ago that hospital officials had refused to put Stokes on the transplant list because of fear he would not comply with medical requirements.
“They said they don’t have any evidence that he would take his medicine or that he would go to his follow-ups,” Hamilton told WSB on Sunday.
- Why can’t the hospital do the right thing without media pressure?
- Discussion about Corey Booker winning the Democratic nomination for the New Jersey senate seat. Of course, we predicted this. He is following the Obama plan in an attempt to get to the White House.
Newark Mayor Cory Booker will move on to New Jersey’s special Senate election as the Democratic nominee after winning his party’s primary on Tuesday, CNN projects.
He’ll battle the GOP winner, former Bogota mayor Steve Lonegan, for the October 16 contest, though polls show Booker is already considered the favorite to win the seat and become the first African American elected to the Senate since Barack Obama.
(Republican Sen. Tim Scott of South Carolina is currently the only African American in the Senate, but he was appointed–not elected–to his seat.)
“Thank you. It is such an honor to be your nominee, to be your Democratic nominee for the United States Senate,” he told supporters at his victory party late Tuesday night in Newark.
Speaking with a slightly hoarse voice, Booker pledged to be “unwavering” in finding common ground in Washington if he becomes the state’s next senator.
- Discussion about Hillary Clinton versus Barack Obama in 2008.
- Discussion about Jesse Jackson running for president back in the 1980s.
- Without the Internet, Barack Obama wouldn’t be president today.
- Why haven’t the masses picked up on the importance of the Internet
- Why can’t you vote in the privacy of your own home?
- The people running the government don’t want more participation from the citizenry.
- What if there was a reality show about politicians–we could see the backroom deals.
- Discussion about the CIA finally admitting that they have been snooping on Noam Chomsky.
For years, the Central Intelligence Agency denied it had a secret file on MIT professor and famed dissident Noam Chomsky.

- Discussion about people not being able to connect the dots between principles and the practical application thereof.
- People are out of practice of critical thinking. Society has been shaped so that we won’t be able to think critically.
- Discussion about whether people should “work”. Is having a job natural? If there is another way that you can meet your basic needs, is work a requirement?
- Some people feel that it is a negative thing about you if you choose not to work.
- If people weren’t forced to have jobs, they would pursue the things they love.
- Discussion about people looking at it as a negative if you change careers many times in your lifetime. The only difference is if you upgraded your career–like going from fast food to a corporate job.
- Discussion about how society views fast food jobs.
- Heit & Cheri discuss past experiences working in fast food.
- Discussion about Cheri having a job at a bookstore.
- Discussion about writing in books. It’s interesting to go
- Discussion about physical books going out of style.
- Heit & Cheri talk about not being able to afford textbooks.
- Heit & Cheri talk about memory. Cheri explains that they remember different kinds of things.
- Discussion about the idea of choosing not to remember things you don’t think are important. Do you think you might be losing information this way?
- Heit insists that he remembers everything. LOL
