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. 27: Conservatarians

Every now and then I hear of someone claiming to be a conservatarian.  Unfortunately I’ve found that this is akin to claiming to be a unicorn.  The creature simply doesn’t exist.  You see, conservatarians attempt to mold libertarianism into a mild form of their brand of statism.  But if you’re being intellectually honest, you have … 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. 17: What Can the Chicago Cubs Teach Us About Decentralization?

Sometimes I wonder if government bureaucrats were put on this planet to help prove me right.  On the heels of my last podcast episode, a GOP state representative from Georgia came out and acted all triggered by GrubHub CEO Matt Maloney’s now notorious post-Trump election email to his employees.  In this episode I take him to … read more

Ep. 15: Donald Trump, President-Elect

  HOLY COW, Donald Trump won the Presidency.  What a gigantic middle finger right in the face of the liberal media, academia, and everyone else who assumes that all decent human beings must share their views and values.  In this episode, I’ll tell you about how I reacted to the election, my thoughts on moving … read more

Ep. 13: How I Voted in the 2016 General Election

In this episode, I’ll give you my political philosophy on the practice of voting.  Here’s a preview: sometimes I think it’s ok and other times I think it’s opposed to the nonaggression principle.  If that sounds confusing, don’t worry.  Just have a listen and I promise you’ll understand. As a special bonus, I also tell … 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

Ep. 10: Voluntaryism Revisited

If you’re having trouble conveying the ideas of libertarianism, anarchy, or anarcho-capitalism to your friends, family, neighbors, or coworkers, don’t give up.  Anarchy has a marketing problem and I believe the solution is a small shift in messaging toward Voluntaryism.  In this episode I continue the discussion of Voluntaryism and defend against a common objection. … read more

Ep. 9: Voluntaryism is the New Anarchy

When you were growing up, at some point in your life I can almost guarantee your parents said “we don’t hit people,” “don’t take that from him,” and “leave him alone.”  Neither you nor your parents knew it, but for the very first time you were being exposed to the idea of voluntaryism, the notion that … read more
