Safe For Work

Jeff Deist is the president of the Mises Institute in Auburn, Alabama and former chief of staff to congressman Ron Paul.

Jeff was originally contacted by Pete to discuss his recommendation that people should stop using the term “libertarian” as a personal descriptor, but only as an adjective. They then talk about whether the term “capitalism” is salvageable and how hyperbolic statements used on social media like, “these people want me dead,” should be interpreted and whether they can be viewed as an imminent threat.

Other topics are broached as well.
