On today's episode Marc is joined by the very first guest to ever appear on Lions of Liberty way back in episode 1 - libertarian legal theorist and author Stephan Kinsella! Stephan answers the quesiton Marc failed to ask in that episode of just how he first became interested in libertarian ideas and went on to become a proponent of Hans-Hermann Hoppe's "Argumenation Ethics." Marc and Stephan go on to discuss the theory - where it originated from, what it entails, and why Stephan believes it to be a superior justification for libertarian private property ethics - moreso than natural rights or utlilitarian/consequentialist ethics. 

Enjoy this deep dive into libertarian philosophy!

On this week's Electric Libertyland, Brian takes a long hard look at the mutation and obfuscation occurring in the fallout from the Harvey Weinstein allegations and the #MeToo hashtag trending on Twitter. Originally created to give sexually assaulted women a voice, the transformation of the hashtag's users showcases how far the Democrats will go to move attention away from Clinton, and America's real "Me, Too" problem, which has nothing to do with sexual assault.

Brian then looks to the ironically named Liberty Act, which seeks to keep the worst of the domestic spying apparatus intact, the bombshell revelation that the FBI knew about Clinton/Russia bribes and money during Obama admin, the New York Times hiring a "gender editor" and finishes up with a well-deserved rant about kids Halloween costumes being considered cultural appropriation.

In today's show, we take a slightly different path away from libertarian philosophy and politics and welcome in clinical psychologist and speaker Dr. Michael Edelstein. Dr. Edelstein starts off by explaining how he became interested in clinical psychology and how that eventually led him to meet Walter Block and - after several years of debate - to him becoming a libertarian. Dr. Edestein then explains his view on self-esteem, and why he is critical of its promotion specifically by Nathaniel Branden and Ayn Rand. Marc and Michael then discuss the concept of "libertaran burnout" and how passionate libertarians can adjust their expectations in order to avoid this common phenomenon.

On today's show Remso Martinez joins host John Odermatt. Remso is a political commentator, campaign consultant, and multi-media producer living in the D.C. area. Remso is best known for his podcast the Remso Republic.  

John asks Remso about his recent foray into investigative journalism, which tipped him off to some shady actions by Virginia Democrats. Remso shares how he discovered that the Democrat Party in Virginia was bringing controversial former Attorney General Eric Holder in to fundraise and in a very strange twist neglected to promote his appearance! When Remso asked local Dems why they were bringing gun walker Eric Holder of Fast and Furious fame for a fundraiser, they pretended that Fast and Furious was #fakenews!

In this week's Electric Libertyland, Brian observes the days-long silence from top Democrats on Harvey Weinstein's grope-gate scandal, talks about the United States embarrassing itself at the U.N. discussing death sentences for gays, looks at a Miami Dolphins coach Christopher Foerster being outed on social media as a drug user because "social justice," and examines the insane amount of corruption in Latin American and Caribbean countries' public services. And to wrap it up: will Rand Paul cave on Trump's tax plan in exchange for some love on health insurance?

On today's episode of Felony Friday host John Odermatt is joined by Lions of Liberty legal counsel "Rico." After exchanging some pleasantries discussing the MLB playoffs, John and Rico dive into the serious topic of the recent Las Vegas shooting.

They start out examining why the gun control crowd and Hillary Clinton have already started to use this tragedy to push their agenda. John and Rico point out that left will push perceived "common sense" solutions, that in reality do nothing to make us safer and absolutely infringe on our liberty. 

Instead of debating the left's fantasy solutions, John and Rico discuss a very important question that you won't hear anywhere else: Should automatic weapons be fully legalized? 

Tune in to hear the answer to this and much more! You can find links to everything discussed on the show below the player for today's podcast.

The abortion debate has always been framed in the mainstream discussion as "Pro-Life" vs "Pro-Choice." Meanwhile, libertarians often find themselves in a difficult position when trying to choose a "side" on this debate, as they try to weigh the rights of the mother vs the rights of the unborn child. Today, economist and libertarian philosopher Walter Block joins Lions of Liberty to explain why he believes his theory of "evictionism" is the answer to abortion debate that is consistent with libertarian value. Where do the rights of the fetus begin? Is abortion the same as murder? And what objection does Marc ask Walter that he has never heard in nearly fifty years of discussing this issue? Check out today's show to find out!

Pride members will also have access to a bonus, off-air conversation between Marc and Avens O'Brien about the issue of abortion, so be sure to join the Pride today and help us grow the show!
