    Figureheads and False Idols

    Figureheads and False Idols

    Iran was up in arms about the United States assassinating one of its top generals, but now is calling for regime change in their own country. People are upset that two members of the Royal Family want to live their own lives. Libertarians are upset about Vermin Supreme winning the New Hampshire Libertarian Party nomination. What's the common thread here? In each case,  individual virtue or fault is found by collective membership. Even among the most individual of thinkers, it is hard to move away from the 'we' and 'us' mentality. Join Evelyn and Shawn as they discuss the reasons they feel are behind this phenomenon.

    Protests and Policies

    Protests and Policies

    The government decides that gun manufacturers can be held accountable for harm caused by their weapons. YouTube is fined for violations of the Children's Online Privacy Protection Act, even though it had measures in place to prevent this. Now, individual channels can be held liable for supposed infractions as well. People all over the globe are protesting their governments' actions and corruption, but all we see is impeachment proceedings. Is this accidental, or does your government not want you getting any ideas? Tune in to hear our take in this week's episode.

    Breaking Point

    Breaking Point

    We live in a world that relies on government to take care of certain tasks. More often than not, we discover that it is incapable of taking care of them. Evelyn and Shawn discuss a recent press conference by Donald Trump involving further militarization of the police to have more people 'fear' them. Also discussed are some examples where people, fed up with what the government does, take matters into their own hands. After the break, the topic becomes the recently released movie Joker. Why has it become the face of protests worldwide? What truth lies within this fictional tale and why should we pay attention. As always, tune in to hear these answers along with our perspective.

    Ripples of Responsibility

    Ripples of Responsibility

    On this week's episode, Evelyn and Shawn discuss the life lessons taught to a first time hunter. Most of us are capable of discerning the primary consequences of our actions, but few are able to truly see all the effects our actions have. Learning that we must accept responsibilty for  our actions and make good any debts our actions cause are cornerstones for the success of the Liberty movement. What could happen if every individual had the opportunity to see the ripple effects our decisions have on everyone else? What would be the outcome if every person that voted or supported government was forced to see the business end of the application of the laws they create? Would this cause more people to take pause before jumping on the government bandwagon. Tune in for these answers and more!

    Why is it tough to talk about liberty?

    Why is it tough to talk about liberty?

    Most of us have felt it, that desire to talk with someone about why the position that they hold is in direct opposition to our goals, maximum individual freedom. Likewise, we have almost assuredly felt the hesitation that goes with talking about tough subjects. "How are they going to react? Is this going to change their views of me? Will this talk make working together harder?" are all questions that many of us have asked ourselves. Now, the question that we ask is this, "Why is it so hard to talk about freeing someone else?" Tune in to this weeks episode to hear our take.
