Emotional and Psychological Challenges in a Life of Liberty

Our Statist News Correspondent Kiki returns to co-hosting duties as we discuss the emotional and psychological challenges in a life of liberty. Kiki first appeared on the show in Episode 3, “Statist News: All the Propaganda That’s Fit to Print.”

Here’s what you’ll hear about in this episode:

  • Michael W. Dean of the Freedom Feens praises Libertarians on Fire (between 6:00 and 10:00, but listen to the whole show!)
  • A letter from a listener in reaction to Kiki’s appearance on Episode 3
  • What happened when I sent liberty books to everyone on my Christmas list
  • The pain of losing people in your life because of your beliefs
  • How I started getting articles published on LewRockwell.com, and why it caused a rift between my mom and me
  • Why it doesn’t bother me that my mom doesn’t listen to my podcast
  • Being in the “convincing game” sucks (and why Kiki hasn’t given up trying to convince others)
  • Why the innate yearning to be free is drummed out of individuals over the course of a 12-year sentence in the government’s day prisons for kids age 5-18
  • Two ways to avoid feeding parking meters
  • What I did when my neighbor played loud music in the middle of the night (and other things I could have done without calling the cops)
  • What you should never do with your gun (that cops do all the time) — something I saw with my own eyes for the first time
  • The potentially dangerous or even deadly consequences of calling the government’s prayer line
  • Victims of the State going to the State to solve a problem created by the State
  • The inevitable result of the State investigating cops who shoot mere mundanes
  • A judge with an agenda who caused a couple to waste $400,000 on legal fees
  • How voting for rulers results in destruction of the wealth, health and life of innocent victims
  • And much more!

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