A Necessary Alliance Between the Dissident Left and Libertarians

hearing the other side

The following is a transcript from the Keith Knight Don't Tread on Anyone podcast, originally titled 'A Libertarian Message to the Great Jimmy Dore'. There is a lot of fundamental overlap in the progressive view of the world and the libertarian view. This is more or less referred to as the exploitation agreement. There are five keys to this agreement. First, there is a small, unjust, parasitic ruling class which rules over the masses at the expense of the masses. Second, the ruling class is ideologically held together by its interest in keeping the system of exploitation ongoing. Third,...

How Two Socialists Became Libertarians. Jo Ann Skousen & Keith Knight

why we went from socialist to libertarian. jo ann skousen & keith knight

https://youtu.be/_VXLOjD6708 The problem with political decisions isn’t that most of us don’t get our own way. It’s also that these decisions are usually imposed on us against our will, by threats of violence... Democracy, as we practice it, is unjust. We expose innocent people to high degrees of risk because we put their fate in the hands of ignorant, misinformed, irrational, biased, and sometimes immoral decision makers. – Jason Brennan, Ph.D., Against Democracy (2016; New Jersey: Princeton University Press), pp. 240, 230.

Democratic Socialism: Mob Rule by the Ignorant

mal (3)

Why is politics so negative compared to marketing — its analog in the private sector — even though virtually every candidate echoes the desire to "just get along"? The explanation revolves around two important ways political competition differs from market competition: higher payoffs to negative attacks, and rationally ignorant "customers." Selling your product in the private sector requires a customer to cast an affirmative vote to buy it. Just convincing a potential customer that a rival product should not be purchased does not mean a sale for you. This is because a sales prospect can...

11/30/21 Hassan El-Tayyab on This Weeks Senate Vote to Block the Saudi Arms Sale

Hassan El-Tayyab is back with an update on a Senate vote taking place later this week that aims to block the Biden Administrations' $600 million arms sale to Saudi Arabia. The resolution is the result of Senators Rand Paul and Mike Lee teaming up with Bernie Sanders. And so, with both parties already being represented, it’s the perfect time to attack the Left from the left and the Right from the right. El-Tayyab has already seen members of Congress react positively to pressure from their constituents on this issue. Follow the links below to reach out to your Senator and tell them to vote...

The Ticking Time Bomb of Social Security

5639011991 8848ea5561 c

At a time when President Biden and congressional Democrats are pushing to expand the breadth of entitlements to include free preschool and subsidized child care, little attention is given to the fact that the country’s biggest existing entitlement program—Social Security—is a financial wreck. The program’s payouts have exceeded revenue since 2010, but the recent past is nowhere near as grim as the future. According to the latest annual report by Social Security’s trustees, the gap between promised benefits and future payroll tax revenue has reached a staggering $59.8 trillion. That gap...
