In today's episode, host Marc Clair is joined by Ryan McMaken, editor of The Mises Wire and The Austrian over at The Mises Institute, and author of the book "Commie Cowboys: The Bourgeoisue and the Nation-State in the Western Genre."
In the show you'll hear Marc and Ryan discuss:
- Ryan's windy road to libertarianism, which parallelled his path from atheism to catholicism, eventually leading him to the Mises Institute, natural rights, and Rothbard.
- Why he enjoys writing about "radical decentralization", and finds no value in those who make basic "End the State!" arguments.
- What inspired Ryans' book "Commie Cowboys", and why the much of the Western genre in American films were so authoritarian and anti-libertyin nature.
- Plus! Marc answers a couple "Letters of Liberty" from fans of the show!
