Ukraine Coup & Joe Biden Scandal Explained w/ Humor

Ukraine Coup & Joe Biden Scandal Explained w/ Humor

The story didn’t begin with a phone call between Donald Trump and Ukraine’s president about Joe Biden.  But back during Barrack Obama’s presidency in 2014, the United States orchestrated a coup of Ukrainian politics and has since been the puppeteer to an entire corrupt regime with Joe Biden’s fingerprints all over it.

In this brand new shocking political comedy episode, we take a look at the history, leading up to this modern scandal…

The Irony of Iran/Israel Tensions

The Irony of Iran/Israel Tensions

There’s a huge irony that during the 1980s, when Iran talked the most shit, Israel armed them.  However, later in the 1990s, when Iran’s rhetoric moderated, Israel pressured America to increase sanctions.  How & why did this irony come about?

 

Some say this irony can be placed on Iran for sabotaging the peace process between Israel and the Palestinians by arming extremist terrorist groups that objected to the Oslo agreements. However, how did this tension first begin?  What is the root cause of it?  Who is to blame for the modern conflict and failed peace talks with the Palestinians?  Tune in to the brand new political comedy episode!

South Korea’s Internet Cenorship

South Korea’s Internet Cenorship

South Korea is one of the freest and most democratic countries in Asia and also one of the most connected and technologically advanced countries in the world. This country has been the example of an economic miracle. In a little over 50 years it transformed from being a very poor country to one of the richest countries. However, in this video we’re going to talk about the internet. South Korea has the most Internet access in the world. No less than 96% of all South Koreans have access to the internet. However, despite this, the NGO Freedom House, which creates an annual benchmark index on network freedom, South Korea barely reaches the “partially free” status. That puts South Korea at the same level as countries like Nigeria or Kyrgyzstan. So what exactly is happening in South Korea? Why do they have such a low level of network freedom? In this video, we’ll answer these questions and tell you how the South Korean government is copying China’s Internet censorship methods.

Ayn Rand’s Objections to Anarchism DEBUNKED Ep. 122

Keith returns to the show with a vengeance! In today’s episode, we do a quick refresher on Ayn Rand’s background and her connection to the libertarian movement, then dive right in to her quoted opinions of anarchy. Could the legitimacy of the State’s monopoly on violence be a major blind spot in her thinking?

Is Capitalism Compatible With Libertarianism?

Is Capitalism Compatible With Libertarianism?

“That wasn’t really socialism!”

I’m sure we’ve all heard that defense before, but are libertarians just as guilty of this argument?

“That’s cronyism!”

“That’s corporatism!”

“That’s not free market capitalism!”

In Episode 37 of Stranger Encounters Tommy looks at the pros and cons of capitalism as a term used by libertarians, and if the use of this term serves utility for the furtherance of liberty.

Is capitalism the hill to die on? Let’s explore the idea.

Illegitimate

The most important lesson of the “Me Too” phenomenon has, of course, gone completely ignored:  it is the same as the most important lesson that ubiquitous cell phone video and Donald Trump’s presidency have taught us, which is that absolutely no one, no matter how respected by peers or loved by the masses or showered with professional accolades by superiors, can be trusted with power over other people.  Any power which can be misused, will be misused, and even if a given holder of power manages to do too little evil with it to be noticed, you can safely bet the farm that other individuals with the same power, either contemporary power-holders or inheritors of that power, will misuse it in some more spectacular fashion.  People with control over others’ livelihood will use it to extort sex; people with “authority” to inflict violence without personal consequence will do so, arbitrarily and capriciously, even upon women and children; people who believe themselves immune to the caprice of authoritarian thugs will not hesitate to summon those thugs in hope of inflicting violence upon others who somehow annoy or upset them; people with “authority” to impose ridiculous laws on others will do so even if they are fully aware of the damage those laws will do; and mad emperors supported by a chorus of sycophants will give orders so bizarre and logically incoherent they make the promotion of an actual horse to high political office look mild and benign in comparison.  And yet people refuse to learn what is right in front of their faces; they instead fetishize the magical power of “democracy” (a fancy name for mob rule) to somehow locate and elevate to rulership individuals who actually can be trusted with power, despite the obvious fact that no such human exists, or ever has, or ever will.

Humans are not yet ready for pure anarchy, and may never be; however, there are functional anarchist societies (I happen to be a member of one), and a small government of strictly-enumerated powers with ironclad guarantees of individual rights is probably the closest we will ever come to a just and incorruptible one.  As I wrote in “A Necessary Evil“, a large part of the problem is that people’s moral perspectives are blighted by a sick infatuation with government, a belief that there are some circumstances in which it’s not only tolerable but desirable to inflict violence on people who have done none to others, in furtherance of some pipe-dream of Utopia.  But this is the vile and barbaric belief-system of savages; as I point out every year on this daynations and empires are as mortal as living creatures, and none enjoy the mandate of Heaven.

As I wrote in “Tiger, Tiger“:

“…no person is morally bound to obey “authorities” merely because he or she happens to be physically located within imaginary lines on a map…the moral authority of ANY politician…is exactly as legitimate as the moral authority of a tiger pissing on trees to mark its territory.  In other words, one should be mindful that there’s a dangerous and irrational animal in the area…but that animal’s behavior doesn’t represent “justice” or a “social contract” or “divine right” or anything else but the predictable behavior of a violent animal with no understanding of what right & wrong actually mean.  “Authorities”, like tigers, are best avoided unless they’re locked up in cages where they can’t maim others…they are NOT to be given…any kind of obedience or deference except what’s minimally necessary to get away safely if one happens to run into one…”

There is not and in fact cannot be any such thing as “legitimate” authority, whether that authority is chosen by elections, lots, birth, examining goat entrails, or pulling swords out of lakes.  And until humans collectively get that through their thick simian skulls, we are doomed to suffer an endless succession of evil rulers stomping on human freedom and dignity until they at last succeed in wiping us all out.
