    Ep. 0206: The Monopoly on Violence w/Pete Quinones

    Recently, CJ got a chance to speak with Pete Quinones, host of the Free Man Beyond the Wall podcast, about a new documentary film he was involved with making -- The Monopoly on Violence -- a film which explores the history and characteristics of the state as an institution, the problems it creates, and criticisms & alternatives to it, from a libertarian anarchist perspective. (This film features commentary from many of the leading anti-statist intellectuals of today, including James C. Scott, Thaddeus Russell, Scott Horton, Jeff Deist, Tom Woods, Michael Huemer, Judge Andrew Napolitano, Tom Woods, Dave Smith, & many more!

Honest history

An Honest view of history, I have been listening for several years and the information has made me a better person and better informed.

Love it

Great insightful podcast that satisfies my nerdy desire for knowledge with enough four letter words thrown in to keep my attention

Educational and Interesting Podcast, Agree with CJ or Not

I've listened to several of the podcasts and found them very informative and stimulating. While I often don't agree with some of Prof CJ's points or conclusions, these podcasts always provide food for thought and are good for challenging ingrained biases. Episode #72 on the decision to drop A-bombs on Japan, for instance, didn't change my overall view that Truman made the right call considering the environment he was in, CJ did make some points that I hadn't fully considered (and a few somewhat less relevant ones). The one on Daylight Savings Time and how it is both unnecessary and counterproductive is a gem, and the one about the need to battle intellectual inbreeding - so common in today's tribal society - is a must-listen.
