Ayn Rand’s Objections to Anarchism DEBUNKED Ep. 122

Keith returns to the show with a vengeance! In today’s episode, we do a quick refresher on Ayn Rand’s background and her connection to the libertarian movement, then dive right in to her quoted opinions of anarchy. Could the legitimacy of the State’s monopoly on violence be a major blind spot in her thinking?
