Year Zero 117: Owning Culture – How The Left Is Winning 2020

I’ve heard it said that the identifying characteristic of a conservative is someone that doesn’t want to knock down a fence without knowing why it was put up in the first place. This philosophy of inaction not only prohibits conversation, it also limits creativity and solutions.it has become abundantly clear over the last few months that conservatives would rather give up the moral high ground to their ideological enemies than stand on principles. At no time in my life has it been more clear than now just how feckless and ineffectual conservatism actually is.

Year Zero 115: George Floyd and the Blowback Riots

Just as the boom bust cycle of the economy becomes inevitable through state intervention, so does the boom bust cycle of culture. Whether it be the death of Rodney King, Eric Garner, or George Floyd we’re never far away from minority cultures reminding the dominant forces that they are tired of their streets being occupied and militarized by outaide forces.

Year Zero 114: Changing Strategies w/Pete Quinones

Pete joined Tommy to discuss his change of thinking during the Covid19 scare and response. Tommy had been experiencing a different line of thought and he’d noticed Pete moving in a similar direction, so he invited Pete on the podcast to discuss these changing times, changing strategies, and all that we’re witnessing in 2020.

Year Zero 112: Escaping the Machine; Self-sufficiency and Self-worth

A man’s liberty must be an autonomous pursuit of independence. As libertarians and anarchists there is a tendency to depend on the collective to grasp theory and philosophy; so as they accept and achieve liberty so do we. But not all slaves wish to be unshackled.

 

Rather than searching for the most brilliant minds to draft arguments convincing the masses that liberty is to their benefit individuals must begin to act in pursuit of their own liberty; setting an example and living a life of self-sufficiency and self-worth.

Year Zero 110: Covid19 and the CDC w/Dr James Lyons-Weiler

Tommy invited Dr James Lyons-Weiler, the CEO and founder of IPAK, on the podcast to discuss Covid19 and how the CDC bungled its response. Dr Jack has been extremely critical of the CDC and FDA response to the novel Coronavirus, and he was more than happy to spend time discussing what this virus is, what he’s discovered in his research, and how the CDC has made this crisis worse.

Year Zero 106: The Value of the Collective from a Free Market Perspective

Year Zero 104: PMA’s; A Legal Analysis with Michael Harris

Tommy is joined by defense attorney Michael Harris to discuss the pros and cons of Private Membership Associations. Many doctors and patients, tired of bureaucracy and red tape, choose to find ways to interact without government involvement saving time and money.

Year Zero 101: A Direct Republic with Donnie Gebert

Donnie Gebert of the Direct Republic podcast and author of The Null Hypothesis of Politics joined Tommy for episode 101. Donnie’s idea of a Direct Republic, decentralization down to the individual, was thought up within a mind trained and educated by the DOD to topple governments through peaceful revolution. When Donnie realized the enemy was domestic and not abroad he put his education to work at home.

Year Zero 98: Isms and Regulatory Capture

Year Zero 98: Isms and Regulatory Capture

In episode 98 Tommy takes on the idea that any one ism should be argued as superior over another. When people argue capitalism v socialism v communism v progressivism v fascism they are forgetting that they are arguing in favor of forced integration or forced segragation. In a society founded on liberty people would be able to choose the ism that best fits them and the coercion that enforces and props up their preferred ism would be null and void.
