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?
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. 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.
