They Are Coming for Us
0:15 – Health Update
2:13 – What advice would you give to someone who has old scars from being a self-cutter from their younger years? The cuts were done in mostly hidden areas, usually covered, like the stomach, legs, but most visible on the shoulders. In summertime it’s uncomfortable to conceal them but stares and often bluntly intrusive questions inevitably result when they’re visible.
5:30 – In a free society, how would abuse of animals be treated?
12:07 – One is the issue of inheritance as a way of transferring ownership of property. As Rothbard has noted, just the mere act of enclosing a million acres of land doesn’t hold up as original appropriation, I wonder if inheriting a large amount of resources and not doing anything with them might not be a reason to invalidate that inheritance. What do you think?
13:20 – In what circumstances (if any) do you think lying is ok?
18:10 – Did you have any role models?
20:11 – Do you have any suggestions for rhetoric training?
23:08 – Do you think the Golden Rule is similar to Non Aggression Principal?
24:44 – Do you think the absence of religion has something to do with crime?
30:32 – I wanted to ask if libertarian thinkers have some realistic ideas on how national interstate projects, such as freeways and high-speed trains, will be completed without centralized organization. Will there be enough cooperation, funds, etc?
32:11 – In a liberal society, where everyone both has the right to their life, and to determination over their life, who makes decisions regarding things like suicide? It was discussed that philosophically we would hope to see society move past that point, but before we evolve that far or before everyone has managed to grow, who makes those decisions?
34:00 – Which kind of repercussions does growing up without a Father have on a child?
35:40 – In a stateless society, how could natural assets/resources such as rivers be regarded as any other form of private property whist still maintaining a certain (needed) level of functionality such that they could still effectively provide for the people in a given region? On the one hand, isn’t it most efficient for one “company” to own and manage an entire stretch of river, for example, so that they have full access & control over the river and therefore its condition.. But on the other hand, would this not exclusively allow for monopolies of the provision of water?
38:31 – I have a question about your ideas about evolution. Some Christians say, there is an evolution, but before the evolution God created the world. Can that be true? Can there be a creator before the evolution?
39:43 – I am 100% on board with non-aggression and do not spank or hit my children under any circumstances. But I find myself using idle threats to coerce and this does not sit well with me at all and yet I cannot seem to stop this despite knowing I want to. Eat or else this. Go to bed or… I use this tactic all the time and need to break this habit badly. Help!
45:00 – In many podcasts and videos you say that the Christian faith causes the many wars of American presidents. But why is the Christian faith the cause? Many atheists and objectivists also support wars in foreign country and there are other atheists who also support wars.
47:18 – How long will it take for real free market anarchy to develop?
