To challenge and rethink our paradigms for understanding society, by applying reformed theology and philosophy to politics, religion, and culture, in order to encourage individual freedom and responsibility within our own spheres of influence.
Mere Liberty is about liberty at its most fundamental core. It’s stripping away the rhetoric that we’ve become accustomed to hearing and challenging the paradigms that face us today.
Mere Liberty is not about politics per se, rather it’s about the philosophies (and theology) behind the problems presented in politics and culture. Challenging the manner in which we see these problems will push us to think beyond mere political solutions that in effect isolate us from own responsibility, and eschewing responsibility means relinquishing our associated freedoms.
Mere Liberty has two ongoing series: Dare To Think which is geared toward the educated layperson and Flashes of Liberty which is for everyone.

Aimee Byrd, Recovering From Biblical Manhood and Womanhood
I talk to Aimee Byrd; author of the book, Recovering from Biblical Manhood & Womanhood. Aimee uses thematic elements from a dystopian novella, The Yellow Wallpaper, to illustrate problems with teachings on gender by the Council of Biblical Manhood & Womanhood, and many conservative protestant denominations. Her book is a call to action to Christians, and especially church leaders, to begin dialoguing about the problems she's drawing out and what the orthodox Christian view answers actually are.
Give Me Liberty, by Rose Wilder Lane, Chs 1 & 2 - a narration
The coronavirus outbreak has us all switching gears. Given that government powers are taking advantage of this crisis, and seizing power beyond their constitutional limitations, I thought I'd narrate Rose Wilder Lane's personal journey out of communist thinking. Here, I'm narrating chapters 1 and 2 of, Give Me Liberty.
Etienne de la Boétie
In this episode of Flashes of Liberty:
La Boétie provides one of the earliest and clearest explanations of why the suffering majority obeys the minority who rule over them; it is an example of voluntary servitude. Here is an abridged excerpt La Boetie's writing.

I love this
I don’t know how many theologically reformed, politically libertarian, philosophically cogent podcast hosts there are in the world, but she is probably the best there is. In all seriousness, I can’t get enough of this show.
A good podcast for Christians who want to think deeper about liberty as it relates to topics in the world and the church.
A thoughtful podcast by an intelligent woman with under-represented ideas.
