Complete Liberty Podcast
Show that promotes total respect for self-ownership, property rights, and personal choice--amidst the authoritarian/obedience-oriented political and psychological memes in American culture (and elsewhere). Basically, governments and all they entail are the problem, not the solution. Voluntarism (or market anarchism, or anarcho-capitalism) and customary law principles, in accordance with reason and dignity, spell the solution. www.completeliberty.com

What a free market in medicine would be like: everything becomes more and more affordable
Bush lifts executive ban on offshore oil drilling
http://www.cnn.com/2008/POLITICS/07/14/bush.offshore/index.html

They Didn’t Attack Switzerland by Bill Walker
http://www.lewrockwell.com/walker/walker32.html
The whole "war on terror" is ill-gotten; US government only protects their own (and even that fails)
Collectivistic thinking treats States as quasi-individuals; coercive government is the real problem, not a State that has an interventionist foreign policy
