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

Defending Voluntaryism

For those of us in the voluntaryist camp, it’s pretty often that we find ourselves defending our principles.  Almost without exception our families, friends, coworkers and neighbors will try to tell us how naive or ideological we’re being when we seek completely voluntary human interaction in society.  Some of the most frequent arguments we hear are … read more

Ep. 8: Question, Examine, Discuss EVERYTHING

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

Diet Statism

I’ve recently coined a new term, which gives voice to how I think about the vast majority of big L Libertarians these days.  The term is Diet Statism and it’s simply meant to describe how even in the so-called freedom movement, there is no shortage of those who wish to control their fellow man under … read more

Ep. 5: Libertarian Townhall Analysis

This week the Libertarian Presidential ticket was featured on a nationally televised CNN Town Hall forum.  If you didn’t have time to watch, fear not – in this episode I highlight the good, the bad, and the ugly.  And trust me, there was plenty of all three categories to go around.  Overall I think the … read more

Ep. 2: Police Violence in the Police State

In this episode of the Battle for Liberty, I add a new segment to the show, Libertarian Life, during which I’ll explain the Libertarian angle of an ordinary situation.  I then move on to discuss Police violence in the wake of several tragic examples.  I tie it all together with property rights and non-aggression. Articles Referenced A … read more
