Discernable

Matt Wong invited me for an engaging, hour-long interview on Discernable. We covered a wide variety of topics including anarcho-capitalism, when to be afraid of technology, and what Michael Malice is like off camera. If you make it to the end, Matt asks me for the best argument against libertarianism and, admittedly, there is aContinue reading “Discernable”

Libertarian Scholars Conference 2022

I was invited to speak at the Libertarian Scholars Conference this year and gave a short presentation on The Ethics of Anarcho-Capitalism. Here is the video: Afterwards, Walter Block suggested that instead of describing actions as ethical or unethical, I should describe actions as being legal or illegal under a libertarian system of law.

The Bob Murphy Show

Bob Murphy had me on his show this week, which was a real treat. We had a great discussion about why libertarian ethics cannot be defined with physics, what an anarcho-capitalist society might look like, and spent some time arguing semantics — in a good way.

Conspicuously absent was Michael Malice, who mentored me through the writing and publishing process. He is getting his own post because I thought people would enjoy a little more detail about what it was like working with him.Continue reading “working with Michael Malice”

So, when I started writing The Ethics of Anarcho-Capitalism, it seemed natural to use git to track changes to the book as I went along. I am glad that I did, because now I canContinue reading “writing timeline for The Ethics of Anarcho-Capitalism”

Honoring Ron Paul podcast

Dr. Howard Grattan invited me to be on the Honoring Ron Paul podcast this week to discuss The Ethics of Anarcho-Capitalism, Ron Paul, and the connection between the two. It was great reminiscing about Ron Paul’s presidential campaigns, the good times we had promoting libertarianism, and the friends we made along the way.
