4/2/21 Immortal Technique on Slavery, Israel-Palestine and the Politicization of American Society

Scott interviews rapper Immortal Technique in a wide-ranging conversation covering the legacy of slavery in America, the false narrative about Palestine fed to most Americans and the ways that politics has become entwined in daily life like never before. He and Scott agree that the powerful have always deliberately played up the petty differences that divide us, hoping to separate and embitter people who should be natural allies. Social change is possible when regular citizens unite against those who perpetuate the evils of war, colonialism and oppression. Discussed on the show:...

The Moral and Economic Case for Free Markets. Art Carden and Keith Knight

Art Carden

https://youtu.be/0qS7EhhDWFA “... there are two and only two ways of attaining wealth in society: (a) by production and voluntary exchange with others — the method of the free market; and (b) by violent expropriation of the wealth produced by others. The latter is the method of violence and theft. The former benefits all parties involved; the latter parasitically benefits the looting group or class at the expense of the looted.”   Murray N. Rothbard  Ethics of Liberty, pp. 166–67 Art Carden is a professor of economics at the Brock School of Business at Samford University....

Introduction to Philosophy. James Harrigan & Keith Knight

James Harrigan

https://youtu.be/r7nBfkPbBVs ... in reviving and building on Aristotle, St. Thomas introduced and established in the Christian world a philosophy of natural law, a philosophy in which human reason is able to master the basic truths of the universe. In the hands of Aquinas as in Aristotle, philosophy, with reason as its instrument of knowledge, became once again the queen of the sciences. Human reason demonstrated the reality of the universe, and of the natural law of discoverable classes of entities. Human reason could know about the nature of the world, and it could therefore know the...

Crazies Come After Walter Block

"It's as though our emotions are running wild, but our minds have just stopped." --Bill Hicks The kooks come after Walter Block for political incorrectitude. One important point, they don't even know what they're talking about: “As for the firing,” said Block, “these students don’t realize that I favor gay marriages, open borders, reparations to blacks for slavery, and that the NYTimes misquoted me, I sued them for libel, won in court, and settled on terms satisfactory to me.”...

Trump Discovers Juneteenth, Claims No One Else Had Ever Heard of It and Takes Credit For Making It a Big Deal All At Once

Now that's leadership: On race issues, Mr. Trump said a black Secret Service agent told him the meaning of Juneteenth as the president was facing criticism for initially planning to hold his first campaign rally in three months on the day. The rally is scheduled to be held in Tulsa, Okla., where, in 1921, a mob of white residents attacked and killed black community members, destroying a thriving black business district. Holding a rally on that day, particularly as racial protests continued throughout the country, was insensitive, African-American leaders told Mr. Trump. He eventually...

‘When somebody’s president of the United States, the authority is total, and that’s the way it’s gotta be. … The federal government has absolute power.’

It started with these tweets this morning: https://twitter.com/realDonaldTrump/status/1249712413219397632 Then boy did he just dig the deepest constitutional hole in the world with this one. https://twitter.com/atrupar/status/1249834932513505280 Lady reporter kept asking him, "Who told you that? That's not true." Then Pence took the podium, was asked if that's what he thought too, and cited the "national emergency." Mostly they were just bullshitting. They're not going to try to order the governors to obey any lifting of the lockdowns. But it does go to show how easy it is for them to...

‘Come Be My Slave’

Yossi Gurvitz: Israeli rabbi at military academy says Palestinians should be enslaved for their own good: Rabbi Eliezer Kashtiel, the head of Bnei David, a military religious college in the settlement of Eli in the occupied West Bank, was lecturing about “slavery and the position of workers according to Judaism”, and offered a justification of Jewish supremacy and the enslavement of Palestinians under occupation: “Yes, we are racists, of course we are.

Alexi Ashe Meyers and Rebecca Zipkin recently wrote an op-ed where they dismissed sex worker who put their lives on the line advocating for themselves and their communities.

I went to Albany in May with a hundred other sex workers to push for an...
