In this week's truncated ELL Brian fights through back spasms and prescription drugs to give some quick takes on topics including the fight in Federal Court to legalize prostitution in CA, Progressive anti-Trump wackjobs' plan to "scream at the sky", and the Pentagon advocating women sign up for the draft.

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.

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!

On today's show, Marc is joined by Scott Horton on the 16th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks to discuss his new book on the Afghnanistan War, "Fool's Errand: It's Time to End the War in Afghanistan." The 9/11 attacks were used as justifcation for the Afghan War, but after raging for nearly 16 years, does that justification hold any water? Why is the United States still involved years after the death of Osama bin Laden? Can Trump's new/old "go after the bad guys" strategy change anything? We discuss all this and so much more with the most knowledgeable human being on foreign policy I've ever encountered, Scott Horton!

Today on Felony Friday Neil Woods joins host John Odermatt. Neil is a former Undercover Drugs Detective Sergeant and is the Chairman of LEAP UK (Law Enforcement Against Prohibition United Kingdom.) For 14 years, Neil Woods risked his life as a drug squad police officer posing undercover as a heroin and crack addict. Over the years Neil came to realize that his work and drug prohibition as a whole, actually made the drug trade more dangerous. So now he works as an activist with LEAP UK to put end to drug prohibition in the United Kingdom.
