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

Early on, we internalize contradictions and develop a pattern of not questioning immoral double standards
Walter Block believes that people are "hardwired" to reject free market economics (which denies volition)

If religion and statism were natural outcomes of being human, indoctrination and propaganda wouldn't be needed
People have been conditioned to not challenge the corrupt forms of morality in their midst, in politics, in religion, and in the family
Academic intellectuals promulgate statist slavery for definite immoral reasons
Economic theories are rooted in people's moral codes, the two main ones being voluntary and involuntary
There's no such thing as legitimate crime
Dennis Prager's moral contradictions and self-induced political blindness (http://dennisprager.com)
You can never escape your own independent judgment to either follow your own moral code or follow someone else's moral code
The libertarian premise is about personal choice, making your own decisions
Playing politics is self-aggrandizement writ large
You can't create a just government (by definition)
What is Libertarian Centrism? by George Phillies
http://www.nolanchart.com/article6423.html
Libertarianism denounces the initiation of force, which means no rulers, no slaves no masters, no governments
Adherence to justice is the right thing to do; it has nothing to do with obedience
Equality laws beget more inequality and injustice; instead, everyone should be equally free
The Real Lincoln and Lincoln Unmasked by Thomas DiLorenzo

The only consistent form of libertarianism is libertarian anarchism (i.e., anarcho-capitalism)
The false nutritional theory of government (terrible things will happen if you don't have some gvt)
Rands three rules; inconsistent libertarians will lose in principle to the enemies of liberty:

The idea of "President" is an invalid concept, just like the rest of the noncepts of politics, such as "states" of "nations"
Libertarians need to take off their rose-colored glasses of statism
Reaffirming Libertarianism by Tibor Machan
http://www.freedompolitics.com/articles/told-1014-libertarian-complacency.html
Being parasites, politicians create nothing; they bring no products or services to market
The American colonies were also collectives ruled by governmental rulers

Each person has the right to contract or not to contract, which those in government infringe upon
Government as "legitimate"--the horrible contradiction within the libertarian movement
It all goes back to the family, once again--disrespectful parenting
The contradictory meme of government disallows people to grow up and become full-fledged, independent adults
Everyday Anarchy Part 4 of 7 by Stefan Molyneux
http://www.strike-the-root.com/81/molyneux/molyneux5.html
"It is more accurate to say that these contradictions were visible exactly to the degree that they were avoided. Everyone walked through a minefield, claiming that it was not a minefield, but unerringly avoiding the mines nonetheless." S.M.
When "law" is not based on natural laws principles, i.e., principles of justice (and rectification of wrongs), then it's merely a statist opinion backed by a gun
