Ep. 48: Defending the Undefendable

This week, the Libertarian Life segment makes a triumphant return.  In it, I discuss my own personal nullification of the soda tax.  Then we dive into more serious topics as I review Dr. Walter Block’s masterpiece, Defending the Undefendable.  Buckle up, kiddos, this one’s gonna be a bumpy ride.   Book Referenced Defending the Undefendable, … read more

Ep. 47: Free Market Beats The State — The Solution to Landfills

Ever wonder what happens to your food waste once it leaves your curb in the ole’ garbage truck?  It typically winds up sitting in a landfill somewhere.  And if this is the best solution we have for these waste products, then there’s no problem.  But is there a better solution?  You bet there is!  But … read more

Ep. 39: Actual Anarchy: How Do We Get There?

The concept of anarchy scares a lot of people.  But the truth is that anarchy is already a huge part of your life, whether you know it or not.  Most human interaction occurs in an anarchistic relationship — meaning nobody had to hold a gun to your head to get you to interact peacefully with … read more

Ep. 24: Economic Illiteracy

It’s far too common nowadays to hear about the gender pay gap.  We hear time and again that when a hurricane ravishes a city, everything will be OK because the jobs created by the recovery effort will lift the community out of poverty.  And we’re berated on an almost daily basis about how healthcare is … read more

Don’t Become a Champion of the Middle Ground

Laurence Vance posted an article earlier this month in which he provided an overview of various Republican tax plans, or as he rightly calls them “tax scams.”  As usual, Mr. Vance is on point.  In the article, he displays all of the recent tax plans put forth by Republican members of Congress and even the Presidential candidates … read more

Ep. 11: The State Ruins Healthcare

Over the past three to four years, my family and I have come to loathe healthcare.  No matter what doctor we see, no matter what state we live in, no matter how carefully we discuss the cost, inevitably months later we’re surprised with mysterious bills for services we can’t even remember.  Can you think of … read more

Bastiat, Rolling In His Grave

That familiar old question from the grocery clerk, “paper or plastic,” is quickly being replaced by a State-mandated “did you bring a reusable bag, or shall we punitively charge you for your evil plastic bags?”  Ok, I admit, that’s not exactly how a savvy grocery clerk would put it.  But nonetheless that’s the message that’s … read more

Walter Williams on the Conspiracy of the Minimum Wage

Dr. Williams once again provides crystal-clear analysis about some unintended consequences of the State’s control of the price of labor. The most devastating and difficult-to-change economic conspiracy is the minimum wage law. The conspiratorial aspect of the law is that it prices all people out of the job market whose skills do not provide the … read more

Ep. 8: Question, Examine, Discuss EVERYTHING

Lately I’ve been astonished at how frequently the media, the State, and regular run-of-the-mill uninterested citizens have all been in lockstep with the notion that ideas and opinions that are in contrast to your own should be silenced, ignored, or vilified.  When we can’t have a civil discourse about current events without an accusation of … read more

Ep. 7: Silly Electric Vehicles and The EU is Clearly Compensating for Brexit

In this episode, the Libertarian Life segment returns.  In it, I showcase the idiocy of reserved parking spaces for so-called fuel-efficient/low-emissions vehicles.  I bring it all back to Hazlitt’s one lesson and the beautiful consistency that is libertarian political philosophy.  That’s right, I found a way to connect property rights and non-aggression to reserved parking … read more
