On this episode, Scott and Adam talk about Bipcoin and Trump's Twitter account, how to find a good barber, and Gustavo Diaz. Bipcoin and Trump's Twitter What the hell is Bipcoin and how does it relate to Bitcoin? Bipcoin was created by Michael W. Deen from the Freedom Feens radio program. How to pick a barber

  1. Go to barber shops.
  2. Observe sanitation techniques. You want to see barbicide or some other disinfectant being used on combs and scissors in between clients. Barbers should be spraying their clippers with disinfectant and letting it sit for a few minutes as well. If they use razors for shaving your neck or lining you up they need to be cleaned and the blade replaced between every client without exceptions.
  3. Understand how to explain your haircut to a barber. It helps a barber to be able to know where you like your sideburns to stop, or if you like your nape blocked or faded.
  4. Be prepared to spend more than 10 bucks on a haircut if you want a good one.
  5. If you see something wrong with the haircut, explain it to your barber and give him a chance to fix it.
  6. Find someone you can relate to, or at least a barbershop you enjoy waiting for a haircut in. A lot of people don't like haircuts because they feel like someone they don't know is trying to make small talk with them. My tattoo guy and I talk about Kung fu movies whenever I get a new tat. You go to the barbershop to relax, you need to choose an environment you are comfortable in.
  7. Finally, make sure your barber seems competent. And that he knows what he's talking about. Make sure that the shop is clean. There will always be hair in a barber shop but everything should be tidy and free of dirt and oil. If a barber doesn't seem to have good sanitation habits feel free to ask them about it. They should have an answer for you if they don't or the answer doesn't seem satisfactory keep looking.

Gustavo Diaz is Venezuela's arch nemesis, and he's nothing more than a guy who works at Home Depot in Alabama and runs a website. Flag burning laws are laws against freedom of speech. Hillary Clinton co-sponsored such a bill in 2005. President-elect Donald Trump and his Twitter are at it again. And, a question from a listener on how dog fighting would be handled in Ancapistan.

Scott and Adam welcome Nick from the Anarcho-Yakitalism podcast to discuss philosophy, from nihilism to objectivism.   Nick HazeltonPhilosophy, the Anarcho-Yakitalist, is our guest in the studio this week to give his commentary on the topics we discuss. You can check out the Anarcho-Yakitalism Podcast at http://an-yak.com. Scott, the Ancap Barber himself, is afraid that he's an alcoholic, so he's stopped drinking cold turkey. It's been a week so far without a drink. Scott reads an article that he wrote on nihilism. One of our listeners, Robb Goodell, disagrees with nihilism, as does Adam. We discuss the issues with the philosophy. Is nihilism compatible with the Non-Aggression Principle (NAP)? Does nihilism come from our evolution as humans? We also discuss the differences in nihilism and Objectivism, and where Ayn Rand was wrong in her philosophy. Nick considers himself an ego utilitarianist. Nick makes the case that all of these philosophies are compatible with libertarianism.

Scott and Adam talk about why the Ancap Barber hates Christmas, libertarian charity, the Green Party, voter ID laws and nihilism.

What's the Scotch of the week and directions on how to make the Ancap Barber Martini. Also, an update on the Ancap Barber's diet.

What would charity look like in a libertarian society? Since taxes are theft, how could charity even work with them?

Make sure to check out The LAVA Flow Podcast and Pax Libertas Productions. Pax Libertas Productions is the productions company behind this show. 

Scott is actually an Ancap Barber and his barber shop is his front porch. He's had a lot of other jobs too, and most of them suck. 

The left is waging wars on Voter ID laws in many states right now. Scott actually knows someone who doesn't have an ID at all. Do voter ID laws harm the poor and minorities more and disenfranchise them?

The Green Party is anti-war, big into ecological preservation, and they are good on social issues. But they suck on economics. Jill Stein was the best presidential candidate on foreign policy in 2016.

Also, don't miss the Anarcho-Yakitalism podcast! We are working to have Nick on the Ancap Barber Shop soon!

Nihilism is a philosophical doctrine that suggests the lack of belief in the meaning of life. The Ancap Barber considers himself a nihilist and discusses why. Are we living in the Matrix? Are nihilism and atheism connected in some way?

This week we discuss the Ancap Barber's fat ass, Obama's legacy, Muslim immigration in Europe, the Watson super-computer, Eric July's message to the Libertarian Party, is Hillary Clinton a satanist. Obama's Legacy Scott is starting a new diet inspired by magician and libertarian Penn Jillette's major weight loss and diet book, Presto!: How I Made Over 100 Pounds Disappear and Other Magical Tales. Scott's also cutting back on drinking. Will he be the same person after all of this? God, we hope not! We have a new President-Elect. How do we feel about that? Could Trump do a lot of good? Will Trump burn Washington to the ground? But I repeat myself. What will be Obama's legacy? Will it be war? Will it be ignoring state drug laws? Make sure to check out the Anarcho-Yakitalism podcast! We talk about Muslim immigration in Europe and islamaphobia. Crime by immigrants in Europe has been climbing it appears. How would this be solved from a libertarian perspective? Are open borders an assault on private property, or would immigration issues be solved by private property rights? Also, don't miss The LAVA Flow Podcast! The Watson super-computer is doing better things than winning at Jeopardy. It's helping with cancer diagnosis now. Will Watson replace your doctor one day, and then inevitably turn into SkyNet? Eric July  from the anarcho-capitalist band Backwordz wrote an open letter to the Libertarian Party. Did the LP miss a big opportunity by endorsing Gary Johnson? Are Hillary Clinton or her campaign chairman John Podesta satanists? We discuss the spirit cooking email release by WikiLeaks.
