    The Trump Presidency After One Year: We Discuss

    The Trump Presidency After One Year: We Discuss

    It’s been a little over one year since Donald Trump was sworn in as President of the United States. While this administration has been a little boring from a political standpoint, we decided to take a look back and analyze the accomplishments – what we like and don’t like. Is there anything in the Trump presidency that libertarians can appreciate? We discuss.

    Does Libertarianism Make Sense Without God?

    Does Libertarianism Make Sense Without God?

    When we’re bored, Pat and I talk about video games, the golden age of pro wrestling, and of course, the existence of a supernatural overlord that rules us all and if his edicts are compatible with libertarianism.
    But then, who doesn’t, right?
    If you’re looking for a little light listening, you’ll probably enjoy our latest discussion in which we settle the big questions of the universe once and for all!

    Was Jesus a Socialist?

    Was Jesus a Socialist?

    As a Christian libertarian or conservative, how many times have you heard the argument, “Hey man! Jesus was a socialist! He said people should give their money to the poor! So if you follow the teachings of Jesus, you should be fine with universal health care, welfare, etc…. Man!”?
    Now, it’s certainly true that Jesus said people should help the poor, but does that mean he was advocating for socialism? We discuss.

    Another Tragedy, Another Pointless Gun Control Debate (Episode 58)

    Another Tragedy, Another Pointless Gun Control Debate (Episode 58)

    We recorded this episode a few days after the tragic Las Vegas mass shooting. Of course, while there are some who fruitlessly call for such an unfortunate incident not to be politicized, inevitably, both sides of the debate have to weigh in.
    It’s sad, but this is a pattern that repeats itself every time there’s a mass shooting… and it’s a legit point on the part of gun control advocates: We all express shock and remorse, talk a good game, and nothing gets done.
    But is that a bad thing? We discuss this tragedy and guns from a libertarian perspective and why it’s good that action is never taken by our betters in Washington to curtail gun violence.

    Michael Malice on Writing, North Korea, and More

    Michael Malice on Writing, North Korea, and More

    Today, we offer a bonus episode! As you might or might not know (probably not), co-host Pat Flynn has his own podcast – The Pat Flynn Show… clever name, right? The podcast is about expert generalism, which means learning multiple skills that will help you become a more complete and valuable person to others who need the services you can offer.
    Pat’s had a variety of guests from different backgrounds who have achieved success not by specializing in one particular skill, but in many. A recent guest was one with which many libertarians should be familiar – Michael Malice, author of “Dear Reader: An Unauthorized Autobiography of Kim Jong Il,” and ghostwriter for several celebrity books.
    Pat and Michael discussed a multitude of topics, including writing and of course, North Korea. We thought our Libertarianism For Normal People audience would get a kick out of Pat’s conversation with Michael, so please… enjoy!
