Guests: Patrick Smith & Jack V. Lloyd - The Principled Position On Borders - A Dave Smith Rebuttal
In this thought-provoking episode of the Free Thought Project podcast, hosts Jason and Matt are joined by Jack V. Lloyd and Patrick Smith for an in-depth discussion on the border crisis. The conversation delves into Comic Dave Smith's contentious stance on deploying the military to the border as a solution, a perspective our guests argue strays far from the core of libertarian principles.
While acknowledging Dave Smith's alignment with libertarian views on numerous topics, they highlight the inconsistency and deviation from these principles in his border argument. The episode also addresses and debunks Smith's exaggerated claim that libertarians support allowing "crackheads" unrestricted access to public schools.
Rather than criticizing Smith, the podcast aims to offer a balanced and rational exploration of true libertarian values, challenging the media's fear-driven narratives and emphasizing the importance of maintaining principled stances amidst sensationalism. Through engaging dialogue and thoughtful analysis, Jason, Matt, Jack, and Patrick navigate the complexities of border policy, libertarian ideology, and the pitfalls of straying into hyperbole and strawman arguments.

Objectivity and Clarity
I’ve been a listener for a while now but Episode 122 2/26/2024 is one of the best I’ve listened to yet. The style of the interview and the explanation of the guests were probably the best explanation of Voluntarism I have heard to date. As I try to grow as a person and learn what I was never taught or exposed to, I appreciate candid discussions with people passionate about their beliefs. Being able to listen to a conscripted candid discussion was truly an education. TFTP is always a fantastic listen but for me, this one, was especially powerful. Thank you.
Journalism at its best
Actual journalism on important topics for everyone
I used to think this show was great and Jason was for freedom. However he is not. He does not talk about how authoritarian and corrupt the Muslim religion is, while just hating the Jews.
I have lost all respect for him. And he is not for actual freedom.
