What are the foundations of libertarianism? We explore that topic this week. Join us!
We start off with a discussion about what happened in Charlottesville, Virginia. Scott's baseline position is, "Let's talk thing out and not resort to violence."
Is it appropriate to punch a Nazi in the face for spouting bad ideas?
Christopher Cantwell, the racist from the Vice documentary, is a class A piece of shit nationalist.
Is there a peaceful way to deal with racists? Yep, and folks in Germany have proven it.
We also talk about the situation with national Libertarian Party chairman, Nick Sarwark, attacking Tom Woods out of the blue in a bout of virtue signaling. We think this was a bad move by Sarwark and he should not be alienating libertarian minded individuals.
We now get into the foundations of libertarianism.
What is the non-aggression principle?
Libertarians are not pacifists, but we do not believe in initation of agression. We will defend ourselves.
Libertarianism put simply is "don't hurt people and don't take their stuff."
We talk about moral foundations and useful diversions with Alan Barksdale.
We start off talking about Coinbase reversing their first memo about not supporting Bitcoin Cash at first. Now, they will be supporting Bitcoin Cash by the end of the year. They likely did this due to all of their pissed off customers and the big hit they would have taken for their initial stance on this issue.
Alan Barksdale is the secretary of the Masidon County Libertarian Party.
Moral foundations theory is a social psychological theory intended to explain the origins of and variation in human moral reasoning on the basis of innate, modular foundations. The original theory proposed five such foundations: Care/Harm, Fairness/Cheating, Loyalty/Betrayal, Authority/Subversion, and Sanctity/Degradation; however, its authors envisioned the possibility of including additional foundations.
How to do drugs with Scott and Adam on heroin.
Scott interviews medicinal cannabis advocate Seth Green of Greener Pastures Tennessee in this bonus episode.
Seth was born with Cerebral Palsy and started having seizures at age 13. He now has multiple illnesses because of this condition. He wants to give people information on alternative medicine that is out there for people like him.
Cannabis has helped him to get off of over 20 types of medications that were giving him even more seizures and mood swings.
Did John the Baptist use cannabis in the Bible?
Without cannabis, Seth suffers terribly and will have seizures. He typically uses cannabis by ingesting edibles and oil because it works better for his body. He generally stucks to indica strains after a lot of trial and error.
Seth is hoping that the Libertarian Party and new politicians can help Tennessee become a medical cannabis state soon. His goal is to create a grow site or to own a medical cannabis facility.
