Fist off, I apologize for the lack of episodes for the past two weeks. Its been really crazy for both Josh and I and domestic priorities come first. Since Josh was unavailable to do an episode, I Skype’d with Charles and this is our conversation.
This week Charles and I discuss:
-Jacob Spinney’s video “The State is Not Great: How Government Poisons Everything.”
-Government monopolies on services cost more than private firms competing to offer the same service.
-Monopolies are nigh impossible in a free-market.
-The History Channel show “The Men Who Built America.”
-Law and personal responsibility does not imply statism.
-Relying on the government for protection protects no one.
-The current justice system empowers the criminal and make the victims be victimized twice.
-Nuclear plants built on fault lines.
-Government doesn’t need to worry about quality of service when its illegal to stop paying them.
-Geek out session about fusion energy. And if we had a free-market, we’d be seeing it much sooner (if not already).
-If Jefferson happened and adopted free-market principles, it would force the rest of the country to do likewise.
So basically it keeps coming back to free-market stuff. Its good though, trust me
Please note: Charles says Carnegie, when he meant Vanderbilt. He corrected himself partway through. Don’t judge him, I’ve done the same thing before.
Charles is the administrator for the State of Jefferson Party Facebook page, and a number of other ones about sports, tourism, small business and so forth as it relates to Jefferson.
