    Re-Issue: Ep 25: Jesus, the Bible, & Politics, with Brian Zahnd

    Re-Issue: Ep 25: Jesus, the Bible, & Politics, with Brian Zahnd

    Brian Zahnd is a pastor from Saint Joseph, Missouri, whose own thought journey mirrors that of many libertarian Christians: away from neoconservatism and nationalism, and towards skepticism of empire and the pursuit of peace. Though he doesn’t self-identify as a libertarian and we have some differences, Zahnd's work does have substantial overlap with LCI's as it relates to militarism, nationalism, and how we view the kingdoms of the world.

    Ep 362: Libertarian Answers to a Theologian's Questions

    Ep 362: Libertarian Answers to a Theologian's Questions

    Preston Sprinkle recently invited Doug Stuart to be on his podcast, Theology in the Raw. Doug discusses his journey from conservative political beliefs to libertarianism, which was influenced by his doubts about American foreign policy post-9/11 and his exploration of economics, particularly the Austrian School of Economics. He emphasizes the importance of free individuals and agency in creating a moral and just society.
    Doug and Preston discuss various topics, including the common misunderstandings of libertarianism and the range of views within the movement on issues like immigration and foreign policy. They agree on the need for a foreign policy that avoids war, the skepticism towards the military-industrial complex, and the benefits of free movement for immigrants.

    Ep 361: The Three Languages of Politics, with Arnold Kling

    Arnold Kling, author of The Three Languages of Politics, joins us to discuss the complexities of political discourse and the tribalism that often underpins our beliefs and interactions. Throughout the episode, Klings dissects the challenges of communicating within the political sphere and the underlying motivations that drive these discussions.
    Kling introduces a three-axes model of politics, shedding light on the beliefs and motivations behind the "oppressor-oppressed," "barbarism-civilization," and "coercion-liberty" axes. The conversation extends into the influence of education and the widening gap between different groups, particularly since the COVID-19 pandemic.
    The episode explores the intricacies of using language and persuasion in political discourse, delving into the impact of motivated reasoning and the difficulty of applying the scientific method to political discussions. The hosts and guest also explore the evolving landscape of public discourse, where issues related to oppression and social justice activism take center stage.
    The complex nature of political discourse is a challenge to fostering genuine understanding and communication. With an emphasis on nuanced thinking and a keen recognition of the multi-faceted nature of political perspectives, this episode promises to be an engaging exploration into the heart of political discourse.
