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. 46: The Pledge of Allegiance

Growing up, I distinctly recall standing up every morning in school, placing my hand over my heart and blindly reciting the Pledge of Allegiance.  But no one ever taught me what it meant — at least not in any meaningful way that went further than the propagandists’ standard argument that it was somehow patriotic. Fast … read more

Ep. 45: Shots Fired, Anarcho-Capitalists Attacked! I Respond

A controversial article at BeingLibertarian.com recently made the rounds and I was asked to respond.  At issue is the author’s claim that anarcho-capitalists are harming the libertarian movement due to their inflexibility and unwillingness to compromise. In today’s episode I analyze the article and take apart the claims one by one.  Where will you come down? … read more

Ep. 44: Secession Day 2017

Many libertarians hate the 4th of July.  But I don’t mind it so much.  I quite like it, in fact.  You see, I take this holiday as an opportunity to spread the truth about the history and significance of what really happened all those years ago.  SECESSION! So go ahead, neighbor, light up that sparkler. … read more

Ep. 43: The State is Out of Control, Plus Listener Questions

Today I spend a good amount of time talking about specific examples that definitively prove the State is out of control.  I use three nearly-unbelievable examples of absurd Statist tyranny to hammer the point home. Prior to that discussion, I provide some follow-up to a question raised back in episode 12 regarding private defense and … read more

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. 40: BFL Correspondent Havana Great Time in Cuba

The Trump administration recently leaked information that it would reverse the Obama-era rollbacks in regards to relations with Cuba.  This seems to be more of Trump’s “America First” strategy in action.  But what, if anything, will such a reversal accomplish?  The State is masterful at achieving unintended consequences and I’m wondering what will happen when the US reimplements … 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. 38: Detained and Molested by the TSA

I had another vile encounter with the TSA this week.  To sum it up, I present you with the following 1-question pre-test: TSA Lead Agent Kerry informed me that being forcibly molested in public is authorized by: A) The 4th Amendment to the United States Constitution B) Presidential Executive Order C) My Consent D) All … read more
