“Independent” Media Sells America’s New Cold War Ep. 176 ft. Connor Freeman

by | Jul 26, 2021

Connor Freeman is a writer at the Libertarian Institute, where he covers issues in noninterventionist foreign policy, focusing on the middle east and America’s new cold war footing against Russia and China. His writing has also appeared at antiwar.com. Find all of his work here.

Connor joins me to discuss his most recent piece “Faux Populists Shill for the Permanent War State.” We also cover America’s New Cold War and those who are selling it. this is what appears to be a coordinated campaign involving prominent “alternative” voices, some of whom are beloved by libertarians. We also send a tough love wakeup call to fellow libertarians who spend more time talking about messaging, strategy, and drama than performing substantive work.
