Ep. 42: Trump’s Plan to Privatize Air Traffic Control

President Donald Trump recently announced a plan to “privatize” the air traffic control system in the US.  Upon hearing such news, a budding libertarian might be inclined to pop the corks off the champagne bottles and start partying like the revolution is about to begin.  Not so fast, says Captain Dave, our resident airline industry … read more

Ep. 41: Beer and Liberty

This week it’s all about beer.  My guest is Nick Weber, who has recently penned a great expose on some statist shenanigans taking place in Colorado.  In typical fashion, our elites have attempted to placate us by permitting a tiny bit more freedom.  The new law, which grants “new” liberties isn’t necessarily a good thing, … 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. 37: The Triumph of the Free Market

This week I’m going to engage the State in an epic battle against the free market.  Ok, ok, “epic” may be a bit of a stretch.  Come on, you know it’s true — the State never had a chance.   Donations for the Martinez and Irwin Families GoFundMe: Mark, Erin and family   Articles Referenced Oil … read more

Ep. 34: United Airlines Flight 3411 — The Whole Story

When United Airlines chose to forcibly remove one of their paying customers from an airplane in Chicago this week, a terrible mistake was made. I think a lot of people agree that the airline could have done a better job of problem solving, and physical removal could have (and should have) been avoided.  But what’s … read more

Ep. 32: How Capitalism Can Save the Environment

One of the most common objectives thrown in the face of libertarians is the problem of protecting the environment.  The typical argument goes something like this: “without the State, evil corporations — who are motivated only by profit — will squander natural resources, emit toxic pollutants, and ruin the environment for everyone. How could a 100% … read more

Ep.31: Milton Friedman Was Wrong

Ok, let’s be honest: on a great many topics, the distinguished economist Milton Friedman was right. Minimum wage? Affirmative Action? He nailed those. And he probably converted countless people to the cause of liberty. For that reason (and others) I think he’s one of the most brilliant minds of the 20th century. But he wasn’t … read more

Ep. 29: The Scientific Method for Your Reasoning

Have you ever wanted to improve your skills of argumentation?  Ever gotten into a debate but found you and your opponent got nowhere?  We’ve all been there!  What you should know is that it’s almost a certainty that the breakdown in communication was caused by a failure to adhere to a system of consistency of personal … read more

Ep. 25: In Search of Liberty, She Fled Communist China

  Many of us in the Liberty movement talk a great game.  That is — we’re fantastic cheerleaders for the cause.   We write blogs, books, and articles.  We publish podcasts.  We participate at rallies.  We even practice civil disobedience.  But the vast majority of us have never risked our lives or our families in search … 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
