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?

Lew Rockwell’s “Declaration Confusion” Ep. 119

During the week, Patrick took the opportunity to read from, and expound upon, an article called “The Declaration Confusion” (which appeared in Lew Rockwell’s book The Left, The Right, and The State ) for the newly renamed Liberty, Bigly sideshow and we thought the content was prime for the main podcast. Topics include the right of Secession and how the various political factions interpret the Constitution.
