A Libertarian Theory of Contract Ep. 88

In this scholarly episode of the podcast, I explain how a post from The Principled Libertarian led me down a rabbithole where I discovered the libertarian “Title Theory” of contracts. I explain, then compare and contrast, the orthodox consideration-based contract theory with the libertarian title-based theory.

Peaceful Treason Takes on “Wild, Wild Country IV” Ep. 87

In this summer special of the Liberty Weekly Podcast, I team up with Robert and Daniel from the Actual Anarchy Podcast for an in-depth discussion and analysis of “Wild, Wild Country.”

“Wild, Wild Country” is a hit Netflix docuseries which tells the story of Indian guru Bhagwan Shree Rajneesh–a man whose followers attempted to create a commune in the high deserts of Oregon. In doing so, they came at odds with the local townspeople . . . and eventually the US Government.

In Episode IV of our analysis, I am replaced by guest hosts Jared and Will of Peaceful Treason. It’s been a while since we talked, and I was so glad that we could reconnect! Check them out here.

There is NO Right to Free Speech Ep. 81

In this short podcast episode, I plug my upcoming appearances, and explain how free speech and “the right to privacy” don’t exist unless the right in question is supported by general property rights. Either way, the government is illegitimate.

SCOTUS Whiffs on Masterpiece Cake Ruling Ep. 80

The Supreme Court handed down a very dissatisfying ruling in the Masterpiece case on Monday, holding in a 7-2 opinion that: “[t]he Colorado Civil Rights Commission’s actions in assessing a cakeshop owner’s reasons for declining to make a cake for a same-sex couple’s wedding celebration violated the free exercise clause.” This ruling, which was narrow in scope, failed to decide the fundamental issue in the case, which had more to do with compelled speech than free exercise. Of course, we libertarians understand that the real fundamental issue here is property rights, and neither compelled speech nor free exercise.
