So you and your friend start talking about politics and you lay out the most infallible defense of  why taxation is theft, but all of a sudden, the conversation shifts to “muh social contract,” or “muh roadz” and quickly devolves from there. Sound familiar?

How do you avoid this trap? How do you plant a splinter of truth in the minds of others? In this episode we  explore just that with our good friends Robert and Daniel from the Actual Anarchy Podcast who join us to share their experience at Larken Rose’s “Candles in the Dark” seminar where they accumulated Jedi Mind-trick level tactics for penetrating the Statist mind.

Keep an eye out this Sunday for Actual Anarchy Episode 37 where they will be taking on 3:10 to Yuma!

Show our buddies at Actual Anarchy some love!
