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.

The insanity of war and statism...
Poll: Most oppose closing Gitmo
The "war on terror" is really about fear, not significant risks
'Supermax' prison draws attention in Gitmo debate
SamIAm update (after clp70 was recorded):
Statists like to impose their stupid views known as "laws" on rights-respecting people
Historically, those in governmental militaries have terrorized civilians far more than non-statist terrorists
Dying To Win: The Strategic Logic Of Suicide Terrorism by Robert Pape
The collectivistic "we" makes despicable actions seem okay; groupthink fosters irresponsible and evil acts
Statist memes promoted by the mainstream media discourage people from thinking critically
The bromides about Americans' "freedoms" have hoodwinked people into embracing the tribal premise and collectivism
Early advocates of individualism knew better: American Anarchism -- 19th century individualist anarchism by Wendy McElroy
The Origins of Individualist Anarchism in the US by Murray N. Rothbard
Only by seeing yourself as an independent individual can you free your mind from statism
Fear-mongering can only be counteracted by reason and emotional awareness
Once people surrender to the "authority" of statism and militarism, they run roughshod over others' rights
Functional Rights: The Elephant in the Parlor, Part II by Scarmig
Rights are universal; they apply equally to all rights-respecting individuals everywhere
"Rights: Not granted or protected by any state, God or magical hoodoo monster. What we call rights are reciprocal agreements negotiated on the fly between individuals..." George Potter
Respect is simply reflected in peaceful negotiation of reciprocal agreements (which occur implicitly and explicitly among individuals on a daily basis)
Those in the U.S. military violate simple market principles of respect, and thus generate widespread conflict in the form of death and destruction
Most people are encouraged to be collectivistic, rather than individualistic, in their patriotism
Reason, Individualism, and responsibility resolve conflict best
Government breaks the order of an orderly society and causes people to denigrate rights
There is no such thing as collective authority; there are only individuals who choose to do good or bad
Cops are slaves to their system of employment, and they are masters in irresponsibility ("it's the law!")--with psychological problems galore
Protecting those in charge and doing their bidding is the name of the statist game (as well as self-sacrifice), from police to military employment
Liberties are publicly acknowledged and reciprocated claims of rights
Government equals domination and authoritarianism, by definition
Private property enables sensible and clear negotiations of agreements; "public property" enables people to get shoved around and violated
We learn to acquiesce to domineering and authoritarian (i.e., rights-violating) third parties known as governments, mainly from our early experiences with our parents
As a parent, it's important to enable little people to flourish, grow, and make their own choices; children need freedom and respect, which will be returned in kind
How to get kids to do boring (but necessary) tasks -
1. Show empathy 2. Offer meaningful rationales 3. Imply that they have a choice rather than of using "controlling language"
Incidentally, all three of these are violated by governmental employees in relation to rights-respecting individuals (because they are "public")
"Public property" is controlled by those in charge, so naturally, rights-respecting people suffer and die in this domain
Traditional education subverts the natural exercise of the child's will and expression of his/her rights
Whenever someone says they have a right to something, always ask "At whose expense?" Case in point:
Individual rights and property rights are inextricably, conceptually intertwined
The authority to make final, impartial, honest decisions can only be attained in a free market of private property rights
Any form of statism infringes on individual rights, even the rights of those who supposedly desire or simply acquiesce to it (e.g., minarchists and socialists--via aggression, collectivistic "jurisdiction," and preventing the choice to opt out)
Government, in principle, doesn't recognize peoples' right to be left alone; "choosing" statist masters is a non sequitur
In a complete liberty society, there are potent incentives to resolve conflicts with minimal cost
