Rants, Rock & Roll, and Q&A

This episode contains a rant by yours truly, as well as a clarification as to the future of the content on this podcast.  The first half I take you on a path down questioning some of the worst things I’ve noticed as well as a story about a conversation I had with a drone pilot.  As the show has evolved since it’s advent, there have been a lot of sharp turns and 180’s but now it is safe to say that the intended goal will be to bridge the gap between libertarianism as a thought experiment read about by wishful people.  No, some people have to be out there engaging in entertainment to give some influence.  People like Doug Stanhope and Dave Smith are great examples of libertarians out there on stage asking the questions no one else will ask on the nightly news.

The music you hear for the first 20 minutes underneath the monologue is by Yndi Halda, from their album Enjoy Eternal Bliss

Problems with American law enforcement with former officer Raeford Davis

I had a chance to talk to Raeford Davis, former police officer with Charleston, South Carolina.  This was a unique encounter for me, being as most police officers I know do not share much in common from a basic philosophical view.  The opportunity to find a truly principled libertarian who has had experiences inside Leviathan is seeming to become more common.

Some places to find Raeford’s writing:
