Jim Jesus goes solo for the first part of this episode and then brings on Larry Bernard of Recording N’ Progress for the second part to talk about The Federal Reserve. Why it’s a terrible institution, why it needs to be abolished, and why libertarians should also abolish conspiracies about the fed because they’re false, unfounded, and only came about via antisemitic groups and hoaxes.
The plan was for Jim Jesus to do a solo episode for episode 75 refuting some kind of nonsense that some libertarians get sucked into. However, I had the opportunity to have a very unique guest. People like it, but some people were upset that I wasn’t alone. People want to hear me alone?! OK, so be it. I’m going to do what I’ve been meaning to do on my YouTube channel for a while now but stepped back from YouTube before I could. I wanted to talk about contrarianism, my take on it, and things that people accuse me of being a libertarian contrarian. It’s important to realize that some of these position I can’t stray too far from and still be a libertarian. A lot of them are nuanced, some aren’t. Topics from The Non-Aggression Principle, Argumentation Ethics, the Austrian school of economics, epicureanism (hedonism,) the word “capitalism,” segregation, progressive rock idolatry, MRA/Feminism, and a topic so divisive I dare not put it in the show notes.
Now, I really am planning a new podcast series where I do interviews that will be included in this feed and I think that these points of contentions could spur some interesting conversations. If you do hear this and you are a content creator yourself who has at least decent audio, drop me a line and I might have a chat with you on the new show.
