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!

Liberation Library [3] The Truth About Judicial Review

In some circles, it has been claimed that Chief Justice John Marshall unjustly seized the power of Judicial Review and apportioned it to the Supreme Court. Unsurprisingly, the truth is more complicated and is detailed in the contents of another great work penned by William J. Watkins, Jr.

There is much more to be said about this issue, and it truly deserves a few full episodes. To get the whole scoop, read the article here: Popular Sovereignty, Judicial Supremacy, and the American Revolution: Why the Judiciary Cannot Be the Final Arbiter of Constitutions

Thanksgiving Special: Feat. Co-host Jerry McCollum Ep. 44

As a special Thanksgiving treat, Jerry makes a return to the show! We catch up, chat about mercantilism & fascism, debating with the fringe Left, touch on the Left-Right Libertarian divide, and talk about hunting. At the end, Jerry encourages me to nag him about making appearances on the show. I tell him that he should be careful what he asks for.

Liberation Library [2] Reclaiming the American Revolution: The Kentucky & Virginia Resolutions & Their Legacy

Welcome to the second installment of Liberation Library Book Reviews on the Liberty Weekly Podcast! In this installment, I review one of my favorite books on the nullification doctrine.
