A History Of Violence

Have you wondered how government became the way it is? In this episode, I take a look at the history of the state. How states came into being and how they morphed into the totalitarian juggernauts they are today.

We also answer a question about voluntaryism from one of our listeners and talk a little about delicious rocks.

What Will You Tolerate?

You probably think the government does some good things. It’s why you vote.

You might think that at least some regulation is needed to prevent sub standard goods entering the market place. Possibly you think that the state is the only mechanism for courts, the police and… roads.

Perhaps you think the safety net of the NHS and income support can only be provided by government.

If so, just what are you willing to tolerate?

How many bad things can the government do before you say no?

How many lives have to be destroyed by lockdowns?

How many wars need to be started?

How many children need to be starved to death in Yemen?

I ask again. What will you tolerate?

Can you be a centrist on everything?

Is it possible to have a moderate/centrist view on a conspiracy theory?

How about something as simple as food? Are vegans and carnivore the extremists and omnivores to sensible centrists?

We discuss spectra other than the classic political left/right axis and whether there are any other nuanced, moderate positions that we might hold.

Bodily Autonomy, Bugs, Birth Rates, Bicyclism and Blax Cuts

Today’s episode is brought to you by the letter “B”. Not intentionally, but a few topics started with it and we managed to crowbar a few more in.

We start off with the repeal of Roe v Wade and ask why pro choice libertarians don’t seem to think moving decisions closer to the people they affact is a good idea. Andrew has an idea to kill two birds with one stone: shutting the left up about reparations whilst proving how good tax cuts can be.

Unfortunatel, we couldn’t not talk about the plumeting birth rates all over Europe and talk a little about just how statistically improbable the rate of change is, showing just how serious a position society is in.

While we’re in a dark place, we discuss eating bugs. A topic that never seems to go away. Nic completely refuses to even entertain the idea although Andrew toys with the idea of eating a bug burger, if it’s delicious enough.

Finally, Andrew gets a few things off his chest with regards to cyclists…

Thinking Things Through

Sometimes people just don’t think things through.  They don’t think about the ramifications or simple interpretations of what they are spreading around.

Andrew has some observations of examples of precisely these viral memes and trends that were truly wide of the mark, but not maybe in the way you originally thought.

Does it change your perception?

Nic then talks about how his children seem to be following his lead when it comes to understanding the role of the police and central banks, and how a simple childrens story about “happytown” has a great message about tyranny.

And what about diet?  It’s not just propaganda that you need to protect your children from, it’s seed oils as well.

Finally, Andrew revisits some important statistics about the number of people who have never been jabbed.  There really are more than you realise.

Trucker Spring and the Narrative Unravelling

With Castreau invoking the never before used Emergencies Act, our eyes are on Canada once more and the Trucker Spring.

We compare this movement to the BLM protests (with associated riots and occupations – CHAZ anyone?) and the freedom marches. Just how violent is it?

But all the while the covid narrative keeps crumbling, across the world and even in other parts of Canada, regardless of the Ottawa crackdown.

Restrictions are ending in the UK…again. How long before the Daily Mail are declaring the third Freedom Day?

And is it time to start thinking about our own energy independence now that the net zero crazies are causing havoc to the markets?

Allegedly…

The Trucker Spring in Canada has put more focus on Justin Trudeau, as he pushes more and more draconian measures to try and stop it.

As a result, the photos and stories about his origins are flooding social media again.

Is it true? Well, as Andrew discusses whether or not he believes this particular conspiracy, Nic has already prepared a list of other classics, from the moon landing to JFK.

Did Andrew see a UFO 25 years ago, and who is Prince Harry’s father?

What Does The Future Hold?

After a brief chat about the return to some old social media platforms, following on from our last podcast, Andrew makes a few predictions about what may happen in the future. Speculations around how people may behave, what they may say and how the narrative may change. Time will tell whether these are more accurate than Andrew’s last prediction that “Masks will be gone in six months”…

In the middle of this, as regular listeners will know, we’ll normally fetch a scotch or two. But this time, Nic brings out a local gin that we both try and muse as to how it may taste with various mixers, before discussing several different types of martini.

Andrew then recaps on some of the utterly ridiculous headlines and newspaper articles warning us of all the things that may cause heart attacks, except for the obvious one of course.

We finish up by talking about the Truckers in Canada and how they’re a proper “people power” movement.

The Future Of Social Media

In this episode we talk about Social Media.

Nic starts by letting Andrew know that one of his recent tweets about Ivermectin has been marked by Twitter as ‘misinformation’, in spite of all the evidence to support his claim. We wonder whether Spotify will start adding a warning to these podcasts, after their recent new protocol.

We then talk about different social media platforms and how they’re evolving with the times.

Will there ever be one platform to rule them all? Or will the left and everybody else always have to separate?
