Liberation Library [4] Blood Makes the Green Grass Grow: Conditioned Killers in War and Society

In this first video/documentary style podcast, I review Lt. Col. Dave Grossman’s seminal work On Killing: The Psychological Cost of Learning to Kill in War and Society. In doing so, I examine mankind’s inherent resistance to taking human life. Next, we take a look at the US Army’s discovery of this resistance and their subsequent efforts to overcome it. Finally, I examine Dave Grossman himself, his overarching thesis, and his side business, where he conditions government goons to kill reflexively.

Libertarianism vs. Conservatism vs. Progressivism Debate Feat. Keith Knight Ep. 47

I hopped on Keith Knight’s “Don’t Tread on Anyone” for a mock debate. Keith played devil’s advocate and threw pretty much every statist argument at me. I didn’t know the questions beforehand, but I’ve heard them all before. Hopefully my impromptu answers will help others in their own debates!

Police Have No Duty to Protect You: The Truth About Warren v. District of Columbia Ep. 46

Warren v. DC is a DC Court of Appeals case that is often cited by anarcho-capitalists and voluntaryists to support the fact that police owe no duty to protect specific individuals. In this scholarly episode of the podcast, I break down the Court’s opinion into digestible chunks. In doing so, I confirm the assertion and explain the Court’s reasoning, which ultimately does underscore the need for privatized policing.

I highly recommend that the listeners download and read the opinion for themselves. Warren v. District of Columbia, 444 A.2d 1 (D.C. App. 1981).

Nothing stated in this Episode is to be construed as constituting legal advice or an offer to provide legal advice or services. I am still a law student and not an attorney.

Crowd Funded Government? A Friendly Debate with Liberty Weekly Ep. 45

This week I am joined by Theodore, who proposes that voluntarily crowd funding government is the most realistic path towards achieving a fully voluntary society. Since Theodore told me his favorite conversations start with the phrase “we shouldn’t crowd fund government because . . .” I use this chance to tease the idea apart. I hope that you enjoy our conversation!
