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. 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. 36: Intellectual Property

The John Deere corporation would like you to understand that you don’t actually own anything you’ve purchased if it relies heavily on software. According to John Deere, you’ve merely purchased the license to the software that runs on those devices. But otherwise, they retain an exclusive right over the device and how it’s maintained or … 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. 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

The Willfully Dishonest for Bernie Sanders

I recently drove past a 2015 Nissan Pathfinder sporting a large, colorful “Bernie 2016” bumper sticker.  Although my mind would have appreciated the clarity that would accompany a quick avoidance of that nonsense, I was unable to avoid the most obvious of curiosities. Was the owner of this large, low-MPG behemoth being willfully dishonest? Or is … read more
