Since its inception I've been talking on the show about the messaging problem, we have as libertarians. I "attack" what I call purists for they're constant and unrelenting divisive speech and uncompromising attitude toward their version of the truth.
If we want to truly change the world we live it will take subtle changes and challenges to prevailing belief. It will require we paint a message of hope based on the most appealing aspects of libertarianism. Peace, Tolerance, Individual Liberty, Limited Government and Free Markets.
This week Jeffery Tucker wrote a piece at FEE.org outlining the two baths of libertarian thought. The humanitarian and the brutalist. It was one of the best-written pieces I think he's ever written, and I spend some time early on in the show discussing his article and what we can learn from it.
Then it's off for a discussion of democratic socialism using the recent insurance Co-op failures selling Obamacare-compliant plans. You can't make this stuff up. All that and more today. Don't miss a minute.
