Government Cops: Serving and Protecting Themselves – LOF #5

Government Cops: Serving and Protecting Themselves

Government cops supposedly exist to serve and protect the public that pays their salaries and generous pensions.

But in reality, they only serve and protect themselves. Because of a combination of police unions, qualified immunity, and officer safety being paramount, cops are above the laws they enforce.

Join us for a stark look at the reality of modern policing in America:

  • What cops do (and what what they do NOT do)
  • A biblical story about the origin of police
  • What two cops did when they were called to rescue a woman drowning in a lake
  • How to snitch on your neighbors (and why you shouldn’t)
  • A couple places you can put your car registration sticker other than your licence plate
  • Do you own your home or rent? (Hint: you’re a renter, no matter what)
  • The actual size and material of The Thin Blue Line
  • Do we even need cops?
  • And much more!

NAP A to Z – Non Aggression Principle Explored – LOF #4

dove-1522656_640

NAP A to Z – Non Aggression Principle Explored

The non-aggression principle is the bedrock philosophy of liberty for most libertarians. In this episode, we cover the NAP from A to Z, including:

  • What it is (and what it isn’t)
  • Historical background (and no, Ayn Rand did NOT invent the NAP)
  • When is it OK to violate the NAP?
  • Objections to the NAP (both inside and outside libertarian circles)
  • Who can get away with violating the NAP (and who can NOT)
  • A philosophy of liberty based on self-ownership
  • The moral hazard of delegating violence to agents of the State
  • Share your internet passwords and go to jail!
  • A Dead Libertarian who earned the nicknames “Mr. Libertarian” and “The State’s Greatest Living Enemy.”
  • And much more!

Check out a selection of Murray Rothbard resources.

Watch the Philosophy of Liberty video.

Watch along with Murray Rothbard as Wendy McElroy and Jeffrey Tucker perform Rothbard’s one-act play “Mozart Was a Red.”

  • The revolving door between government and media
  • Heroic cops who get lap dances paid for by you and me
  • From the evidence room to the streets: why cops are selling drugs to the most desperate people in society
  • The alternative to traditional media that can make a difference in exposing government lies

OJ Simpson Revisited From A Libertarian Perspective – LOF #2

OJ

OJ Simpson Revisited From A Libertarian Perspective

When OJ Simpson was acquitted of murdering his ex-wife in 1995, I was just another dumb white statist who thought he got away with murder because of a black jury.

After watching The People v. OJ Simpson and OJ: Made in America, I started wondering: if I had been a libertarian at the time, would I have felt differently?

And if the jury wasn’t to blame, who was?

Listen to this episode to discover how I think about this landmark event in American history now, revisited from a libertarian perspective.
