I believe the most revealing comment that Stefan Molyneux ever uttered was in one of his 'how to defoo podcasts.' It was in: FDR348: Escaping Your Family Step By Step - Part 2 (20:00 Stef gives example of his defoo talk with his family 35:00 describes the letter about taking a break from the family. Then in the course of offering up his recipe for for a defoo, he offers this bit of moral direction:
44:40 “Please send me a donation... it will make it a lot easier for you to confront your parents if you're acting with good integrity in your life in general”
Here are few more direct quotes from Molyneux (either written or transcribed from a podcast):
The DEFOO. In podcasts outlining the step by step process for leaving your family:
FDR347: Escaping Your Family Step By Step - Part 1 (10 minutes in until end - refers to people close to breaking with families)
FDR350: Escaping Your Family Step By Step - Part 3
(How to deal with objections from family, all you need is a couple of months away, describes techniques of "fogging" or "broken record")
31:00 “Do it at their house so that you can leave.”
In a chat room where someone with a screen name of S****y was discussing some seemingly serious issues. There was a mention of suicide and throwing away his medication so he would not be tempted to deliberately overdose. If ever there was a 'go to a therapist moment' it was this one. Here was Moly's one and only post on this chat stream:
"S****y, get off the god damned fence and get rid of your family."
And of course the original:
Caller: "Sometimes my dad shouted at our cat Fluffy when he was angry."
Molyneux: "I'm so sorry you had to experience this. What a monstrous, foul beast from the depths of hell. Your childhood must have been devastating. Tell me, did he ever shout at the cat in public?"
Caller: "Uh, no."
Molyneux: "I knew it! That proves he is not insane! He truly is a hateful, satanic demon who commits these unspeakable acts on purpose. I'm not telling you to defoo, but you'd be a complete loser if you didn't."
