ANC Ep. 8: David Gornoski Interviews Robert Murphy

How do we win liberty for the future? Where does the liberty movement go in these rapidly changing times?

A Neighbor’s Choice founder and syndicated writer David Gornoski speaks with Austrian economist Dr. Robert Murphy. You won’t want to miss this discussion as winning strategies for communicating liberty are discussed as well as a timely look at the sexual assault-based power of the state’s victimless crime laws that place nonviolent persons in cages where rampant.

In this episode you will also learn how Jesus is the founder of the liberty movement, how the state sacrifices scapegoats to gain power, and how to build bridges with people new to voluntarism and nonviolence.

Robert P. Murphy is a Senior Fellow with the Mises Institute and Research Assistant Professor with the Free Market Institute at Texas Tech University. He is the author of many books including Choice: Cooperation, Enterprise, and Human Action (Independent Institute, 2015) which is a modern distillation of the essentials of Mises’s thought for the layperson. Murphy is co-host, with Tom Woods, of the popular podcast Contra Krugman, which is a weekly refutation of Paul Krugman’s New York Times column. https://consultingbyrpm.com/

The Importance of Consistent Nonviolence in Society

Once you allow the collective to use violence against a single nonviolent act like opium use, you open the moral authority for them to use violence to punish other nonviolent acts…like speech they deem hateful, wages they deem too low, milk that is not pasteurized, lack of health insurance, etc. The moral principle of Jesus-imitating nonviolence must be consistently applied lest we enter the chaos of democracies that scapegoat misfits and dissenters based on the latest whims of the crowd.
