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

Human beings should be rationally self-interested

Modern politics stems from denial of self-ownership, among other things

What we have is a world of deficient self-esteem

Egoism doesn't demand that others sacrifice for one's own sake

The key is to live in the present moment, appreciating that you are alive!

Your happiness is the ultimate defiance of death

Since life is the standard of value, an indefinite lifespan is a profound goal

When people don't rid their lives of self-sacrifice, our culture suffers greatly

Government and Katrina...
20/20 - Politically Incorrect Guide To Politics - Pt. 3 of 6
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vuL8teeuJD8&NR=1

Governmentally controlled roads should be abolished, based on respect for property rights; highways and byways should be privately owned

Imagine if all the people in government, and those they drag into their morass, were not throwing away their productivity; if government were no more, then everyone would be productive, trading value for value

"City services" aren't services; they are coercive monopolies funded via extortion; those in government can't "own" anything, because their so-called property and jurisdiction are based on coerced communism

Imagine no more DMV, TSA, and other tyrannical organizations...
Imagine amazing advances in free market transportation...
Imagine amazing advances advances in life-extension...
Imagine the newfound levels of respect (of self and others) in a society of complete liberty...

People's arguments are typically emotion-based and coupled with fallacies

Trying to control others' property is not only unjust; it also isn't good business
IP laws essentially turn all consumers into potential "criminals," even though they've not violated anyone's property rights
It's not good business to try to control what customers can and cannot do with what they buy (despite what Steve Jobs believes)

Let's hope this next decade will be better than the last one regarding prospects for freedom...
Back to Basics on Property and Competition by Jeffrey A. Tucker
http://www.lewrockwell.com/tucker/tucker129.html
Property rights aren't respected by governments in civilization; "laws" created by a coercive monopoly infringe on them daily
People in the marketplace are the ones who respect property rights, not government
Laws, and the people who make (and interpret) them, seek to control others, not respect freedom and justice
Property rights exist to make distinctions concerning who owns what and who can therefore utilize what, without conflict or confusion
Plagiarism is generally frowned up, and provides a marketplace check against confusion and fraud charges
The tentacles of statism in the realm of IP are pervasive, as are the unseen costs of IP laws
"Anti-trust" law was created by gangsters with no good intentions
A "competitive" marketplace is just one in which people bring values to others unimpeded
An Objectivist Recants on IP
http://blog.mises.org/archives/011162.asp
The principle of self-ownership represents the unification of liberty and property
IP fosters rampant legal conflict, on account of it contradicting real property rights
The first serious critique I read against IP (hat tip to Ian Freeman of http://freetalklive.com)...

Once patterns of information are released into the marketplace, individuals will likely seek to duplicate them (without conflict)
Again, trying to control duplicates of what you've created leads to conflict with others' property rights, as well as more statism and unintended business consequences
