I have been a libertarian for about 15 years. Even before I knew there was a word for it, I was outspoken about personal liberties, the right of a person to be subject only to themselves. Back then, I thought that made me a liberal, and I suppose it does, in the classical sense. I began this podcast in response to a myriad of questions I was consistently getting from friends and colleges about just how a libertarian society would work. They just can't seem to believe that free markets, personal responsibility, and self ownership could possibly lead to a functioning society, despite centuries of data where free markets, fair competition, and personal incentives have improved the lives of millions of people, while socialist regimes murder and control the masses. This show is exactly what the title implies. Whether you are a libertarian yourself, or leaning that way and need someone to help you articulate liberty principles or need a hand figuring out how to respond to the popular myths of collectivism. Maybe you are a socialist and think all libertarians are bat shit crazy and you want to present your arguments for state control to gain perspective or just to try to be snarky and call us out. Go for it. Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and put Q&A in the subject line. I'll be glad to answer your question on the show.
All the best,
