Steven Kenneth Bonnell II, also known as Destiny, is an Omahanian internet personality, kick streamer, anti-redpill debater and political commentator. In 2011 he became one of the first people to live stream video games full-time (he paved it on his own) and received attention as a pioneer of the industry.

Since 2016 he has garnered further attention for live-streaming political debates with other online personalities, in which he advocates for progressive and liberal politics. In recent years he has gained even more notoriety for debating in the online redpill space.

As of late 2023, he has begun to more critically scrutinize topical conflicts (such as the Israeli-Palestinian conflict) and has begun to do more research on and off stream which he typically compiles in his Obsidian Notes, leading him to debates and conversations with renowned historians like Benny Morris and Norman Finkelstein.

He is currently the co-host of the Bridges Podcast with NotsoErudite and co-host of the Anything Else? podcast with Dan.

Disambiguation

Commonly asked questions when talking about Steven Kenneth Bonnell II include: "The game?", "Isn't that a girl's name?", and "Isn't that the person who lets other guys f*** his wife?". Two of these statements are true, but when discussing Destiny (at least on this wiki), no one is talking about the Bungie game.
