"I'm just curious, did you read other politically incorrect guides to follow the pattern that they set? Yes, I did it. My friend Tom Woods are the first one. It was on history, and it was a New York Times Best Seller. So I've been familiar with the guys for years and I've read several of them on different topics and like you. I love all of them. I think they're all just fabulous books. Fabulous books and you've written one now and it's just when did it come out? August 16th, just a couple weeks ago. Well, congratulations. I hope it becomes a bestseller because that means more and more people will know something about economics.

"They're so good from the very beginning. From the very beginning. Ron paul and tom woods and jeff dice and lou rockwell. These guys were just great. They were all over it like. Oh this is all like we. Paula cole coolest. If everyone he was just like you just need some sun. How ron paul still has like. He's the kindest guy ever but he was also born in like the thirties. You know what i mean. So he's just like even though he's so kind and he would never swear. You always see this thing like kinda right underneath him. Where it's like when he guys a bunch of pussies like god cold going around liberty date say you know. This is my interpretation of him. He's much better from just a better generation but But yeah but they were just great right away. They were just like well. Here's where the government's lying. Here's where the corporate presses lying this. This is not justified to talibanism this. The totalitarianism is much more of a threat than this virus. Like they were just great right away and then there were. Other areas libertarian. Party that libertarian. Party in the libertarian movement. That just i mean. I really think and i don't take any pleasure in this. I think it's unfortunate. But i think in in many cases they forever sacrificed their Their credibility and their seriousness. You know. I mean the libertarian party. The the people in the party who were silent on lockdowns i mean. They said that we beat the virus by being anti-racist that's what they said yes. Yes that's right. That's well silent on lockdowns focused on anti-racism and still like it was. It was so weird. I know tom woods. Loves making fun of it but it would be like april of two thousand twenty. So it's like a month after. The government locked everyone in their homes. And like there's like every social norm has been overhauled and like we're in this crazy and like the libertarian party. Would tweet something about how we oppose. Civil asset forfeiture. and you. i mean yes we do but this and it was so it was like mind-blowing seeing i remember watching joe joe jorgenson give campaign speeches. That literally i remember. I actually listened to one the whole time with this in mind and she passed and i said i was just saying to myself. Could this speech have been given in nineteen ninety six and all of it. It was all about the war on drugs and centralized power and how decentralisation allows people to make their own choices and blah blah and. She's speaking to in this park outdoors to a bunch of people in masks. And it's like you're not you're not addressing what's happening right now with the thing covering their face by way in that very park where she was. Several people had been arrested for not social distancing. So it's just like again. It's not like even technically that anything she said from her nineteen ninety-six stump speech was wrong. It was just like how tone deaf can you be to not be addressing the crises that these people are are living. You can see on their face like the the crisis. That's in front of them. All right. let's take a quick second and thank our sponsor for today's show which is fume fume natural inhaler that makes it easy to get the benefits of super plants on the go.

"Prices were about to come down. Let's say for the sake of argument. They're all just to make this clear easy example. They're all at ten dollars right now and they were gonna come down to five dollars. Make your life a lot easier. But then the government prince a ton of money and so they stay at ten dollars right. they didn't they. Were gonna come down to five. But they stay at ten because the government printed all this new money and we have all of this inflation. Well if you're just measuring the prices you would say. There was zero inflation right because it was ten dollars and it stayed at ten dollars. If you're just measuring the cpi the of course leave out for the fact that the cpi doesn't account for housing or energy or any of that shit but if you're just measuring the prices you'd say there's been zero inflation here but if you look at the money creation you'd say oh no no no. There's been a ton of inflation and which one of those would more accurately describe what happens. Well obviously looking at the money because the prices may not have changed. But they were about to be much more affordable and now they've been kept out of reach so anyway that's just one thing to have in the back of her head that anytime you're creating all this new money and credit especially when it's going directly into the system and not just sitting in reserves For at big banks. You've already created the inflation so the inflation has already been created. And now we're just looking at what the effects of it are so that just keep that in mind. The distortion and the the robbing of the american people has already happened. It's just what's the cpi doesn't measure when you pick up your cinnamon toast crunch and there's one piece of toast in there because they gotta to keep sizing down to keep it at the same price. Now it's not a great bowl cinnamon toast. Crunch that is a that is that is true. All right guys. Let's take a moment and thank our sponsor for today's show which is tale of two brothers dare to live.

Don't even know we'll bring the house down. Cost nothing to attend register at tom woods. Two thousand dot com. Hey folks. Tom woods here a couple of things to tell you before we get started with our episode. I the topic for today is the national debt and in particular whether it really does any harm to us or not of course we know it does but we want to talk about exactly what forms that harm takes. Because sometimes they're not that evident and to talk to us about this. We have our old friend. jean epstein. Who is the director of the soho form. Which is the premier libertarian debate series in the country and before that he served as economics and book review editor at barons. The nation's premier financial publication and before that he was chief economist at the new york stock exchange. He's got a resume as long as my arm. But i'm glad that right. Now his job consists of sitting here and talking to us about the national debt. So we're gonna bring gene on and a minute before we do that. I won't let you in on something. One of my listeners has done that. I think some of you folks will find interesting. And he's created a website in a service private phone shop dot com. And so the way pitches it is whether it's censoring dissident voices or restricting what you can say about cova. It's clear that big tech companies are no friend of libertarians. Why support them by carrying a phone. That spies on you just so they can sell your data and private phone shop. We sell de googled phones.

Let's say out of the gate so If you'd like to have that for site you're thinking of creating checkout tom woods dot com slash publicity before you create that site and you will be in the driver's seat all right now over to gene. Nfc nami warn you. Let me warn you. Don't say to warn you when gene and talk. Sometimes it takes a while going but it's always worth listening to okay. Even the banter is always worth listening to gene. Welcome to the show tom. It's great to be back on your show. And of course it was great to see you at work fast just a week or so ago. And in fact coincidentally Perhaps you missed the barn burner of a of a lecture by my one of my favorite living economist. Bob murphy at pork fest. Because he he delivered Quite intense lecture on the subject. That you and i discussed this morning much of a devoted to that issue of the burgeoning debt and the alarms about it. And so i'm gonna cripple a bit from the great bob as good things. I bob just seem so busy lately. That i feel bad asking you to come on the poor. Tom would show you know. So i i know i got old gene obscene. Anytime i want you can always fall back on me. And and then Also you know.

"How huge part of a man's life is the same under assault and in the senate and he goes on but to me. I love that sentiment. But then i'll go posted on social media and people are like you know as a christian you have to be involved in in the political discussion all the time because we have this societal responsibility to do it so i don't know what the balances they're interesting but the thing is that what they're mixing up is society and politics right right. Can't can't we resolve matters among ourselves without politics. We're always has to be one size. Winner-takes-all one side takes everything. So the the of the there's a mean that's going around right now where it shows. Here's the marketplace and here's ice cream. There's a million flavors you pick the one you want everybody's happy. Then you have american politics you have two flavors and a fifty one percent chooses this flavor. Everybody has that flavor. How is that improvement. And so why would i want as few questions as possible to be resolved in that kind of way. I want as many as possible to be resolved in a matter of well. Maybe we can't agree among ourselves. Now there's no grou- grinch there are some issues. That are so important that we just have to fight them out. I'll grant you but not all of them and sometimes you do more damage even to your own side by fighting it would. It would be much better for me not to try to go to san francisco and make them all live like me that that's never gonna work and meanwhile be neglecting my own children. It'd be much better if san francisco. When i declared a truce and you live your way. And i'll live my way. And maybe by the force of our example one of us want to emulate the other but instead but instead we're just constantly either every four years every two years or now it seems like constantly. We're gonna civil war with each other all the time. And i can't imagine that it's healthy for people for our mental health for our social health to be constantly at odds with each other ripping each other apart with our with our incompatible worldviews. I want these things resolved outside the realm of politics where where more than one side can win and we and we can have peace. Hey you are you enjoying this interview. I am oh i- serum and actually probably sweating trying to think of new questions this very moment. But if you're enjoying it you should become babylon subscriber because the interviews are much longer. Yes and we also have the most fun because the portion of the interview. That does not go up here on youtube. Publicly can't be googled. Sar guess kind of kick back a little bit and get a little looser. They tell us what they really think. And we always do our ten questions which for everybody intends to be the funnest part of the show. Yes so become battle on beat subscriber babylon dot com slash plans. And you get the full interview show and you also get it a day early to now so my the other thing that i think a lot of christians got hung up on and i don't know where you stand on these things but when they hear the word libertarian. I think of a lot of them get hung up on the idea of legalizing drugs legalising prostitution. When does it seems like. That's like the libertarian. Stance is generally like that and there was an assumption about abortion to and also working out that you're teaming up with pro choice people and those are the biggest hangups. I think for christians when it comes to the idea of going full on libertarian. Lib live my approach in these. I'm pro-life so that that resolves that question and there are plenty of prolife. Libertarians as libertarians for life has a great website with some great articles on it and they actually make although they don't have to. You can be religious and be a libertarian. But they they make secular arguments against abortion that. I also find very persuasive that respond to a lot of the common arguments that you hear that. The fetus is an unwanted parasite and so i have the right to expel it. They take care of all those sorts of arguments. Just the way i look at the state is i. Don't want this thing defending my values because five minutes from now it's going to be attacking me and it's going to be assaulting everything i value so i don't want to depend on it i. I'll build my own society with my own values without its help but but right now i mean what more needs to happen before you realize this thing. This thing's not going to be reformed in your lifetime. There's no is just no way it will ever be your friend. It might be your friend for ten minutes. And then you're going to hand over to it all these powers that will then be turned against. You know this is going to. I wish the problems that we face could be solved by a political argument and a vote. These problems are going to take rolling up your sleeves and working and proselytizing and teaching and countering the wrong ideas and making videos and teaching people and explaining things. It's going to take that and it's going to take one soul at a time. I wish we could just have a vote and it's all resolved but it's not now in terms of the other two issues that you mentioned. Well i know that. Thomas acquaintance won't appeal to every viewer but we can at least agree. Thomas aquinas was not an atheist. Let's say right. He spent his entire life contemplating god and theological questions and it was his view that when it came to something like prostitution it could in fact be tolerated because there are there are some situations where when you ban something the outcome could actually be worse and so for example with the drug war. I think the outcome is worse. Because i don't actually think it is possible by the way people could use more drugs if they were legal. That's possible there are countries where they've done this and they haven't had that effect but think about somebody in your life who has a drug problem and ask yourself is imprisonment. The best approach for that person and and what we surely know is going to happen to that person in prison. Is that honestly. The christian approach to this issue is just lock them in a cage with with people you wouldn't want to be within a thousand miles of. That's the best approach. You can come up with. There has to be a more compassionate approach and by the way those are the only two options. Those are the only two options some compassionate approach where we try to get people to help they or we locked them in a cage. And the libertarian. Position is simply saying. Don't want them in a cage. Do whatever else you want. Give them all the resources you want to give them. All the education all the therapy whatever it is but just don't put them in a cage and likewise the way it's not like banning prostitution makes it go away they don't call it the world's oldest profession for nothing somehow it's been evading all these regulations for thousands of years but the way it used to be handled would be well. It went on in the bad part of town. That you that you keep out of but pretty much everybody somewhere along. The line has some moral foibles and we don't necessarily think that these solution to it is. She is to humiliate him completely but rather to to provide for his moral education. But so just because you tolerate. Something doesn't mean that you want it to be shouted from the rooftops everywhere or available outside a school house or whatever. Private property in a in a society of of entirely private property would resolve this because nobody nobody would want to live like that. Nobody wants a school. That has a heroin dealer outside the door. Nobody wants so that that doesn't happen. That this resolves all these kinds of questions about who gets to protest where and who gets to scream and whose face. Well it depends on who owns the property and that tends to result again peacefully peacefully. Resolve these problems. Yeah you mid wit out all right. Well let's move into our subscriber portion. All right we'll ask the real steamy questions real down into some more. Geez they're going to get harder than these are questions will ask the other twenty questions for michael malice.

"Trolled and also audience. You should buy tom's books. Yeah also by towns book which apparently are not as good as michael's books if you've had a lobotomy. You might think that all right. Well i think okay so now. Actually interviewing that was michael got twenty minutes or interview. We did a huge solid on that one. So i'm i'm a amid. Would that count. Because i'm so. I'm not like super. I became more libertarian-leaning recently but i'm not like a guy who's read books like dan back here. In fact i was saying during our interview. We should each kind of like on. Who wants to be a millionaire. You get one lifeline to dan. Because dan reads a bunch of like amid it would be somebody who in the middle of a discussion about mitigation of the virus. Comes along and says well. You know what's really important. Social distancing social distancing consists of trying to stay like six feet. Apart as a way of. Now we've been through this for fifteen blankety blank months. How could you possibly think. I'm unfamiliar with the term social distancing or think that an argument that i've obviously heard a million times answers me or you know what's really important masks. Okay maybe you believe that but if that's not an original everyone's already been talking about that for fifteen months so that's not actually an argument. That's just you repeating something you heard on television. That's amid wit okay. So it's not me. No you're not a bit but now with our our audience is largely christian and their faith is a big deal to them. And i i'm interested in your. I'm sure you've answered this a million times every question because you do a lot of this stuff. How do you connect faith to libertarianism. Your views on economics. What is the case you make to. Somebody like that. Who just goes well christian. I don't get so into economics and politics and stuff like that all right well. We'll just start with politics more. Generally i mean. I don't really care for it. I find myself drawn to it. Because just as a matter of self defense i have to be involved in it but i would say that particularly in this day and age. There's just no possibility. The state has ever going to be your friend even if you thought it might possibly be. That's just not going to happen. The kinds of people who are drawn to it and who remain in the permanent bureaucracy or people who cannot stand the sight of you and they broadcast this to you almost daily and even if somebody manages to get into the white house who kind of likes you a little. He's going to spend his time fighting against an entrenched bureaucracy. That wants to resist. Every is every move so far better to try to build a parallel life apart from the coercive of structures of the bureaucracy. Build something build up your community build up your church build up your friendships build up all these beautiful small voluntary arrangements. That really are what america's all about alexis de tocqueville. All the way back in the eighteen thirty said that that was his impression when he visited the united states he said in europe. You have all these problems and the government has always trying to fix them. He says whereas in the united states instead of that there's always some voluntary association that comes together to try to make things better. And i think just as a matter of plausibility the especially since the french revolution. The french revolution granted was aimed at the religious aspect of it was aimed at the catholic church but that wasn't because they were protestants. Okay that was because they the fact that they read they started the calendar all over again and they dated the the year from the when they killed the monarch and they made the weeks into ten day weeks instead of seven which would make it almost impossible over time to remember when sunday was. That's not like they didn't accidentally do that. You know they. They didn't accidentally enthrone a statue of the goddess reason in the cathedral of notre dame just because they had nothing else to do. This was a pretty obviously anti-christian movement and the idea of a single indivisible almighty irresistible state was at the heart of the french revolution and that's been the heart of almost all regimes in the western world since then is one single irresistible power center and when that power center is aimed against you. You're gonna wish you had a little patchwork of of tiny little jurisdictions of the kind that i'm describing so i think in order to build the kind of life we want. We need to stop trying to build some some some gigantic tower of babel and instead build wants all around us be humble and not not try to fashion the world into into a vision that we have when when our own our own kids are struggling just to not be corrupted by a crazy world. I mean we have to get a priority straight. You have your family. You have your your neighbors. you have your church. These things will take up enough of your time without trying to build some giant empire something or or have a single irresistible power center so and then which when it comes to economics economics is not just about money and profit like these are things that are beneath us that. We're we're too sophisticated for that. That that's for i for stupid materialistic people. That's all wrong. The economy is how we cooperate with each other when there are more than ten us in the world when there are ten of us we all know each other's names and we can all hand out assignments to everybody but when there are billions and billions of. Us is impossible to do that so we have to figure out. What's the best way for us to all work together. So that as many needs as we have can be satisfied and so that people can lead flourishing lives. People are not going to be able to have a study group reading kelvin's institutes if they're on the verge of starvation. They're going to be thinking. They're going to be extremely materialistic. If they're on the verge of starvation okay guarantee you that's not gonna make them purer and more spiritual it's going to make them radically materialistic so so to me then the economy. It's it's understanding. The economy means understanding. How it's possible that the smallest thing like a ham sandwich or a book that requires a vast number of inputs. I mean the book is you got to grow a tree and shot and chop it down with an axe and the act requires steel. Then you gotta do mining and all the who knows how to do all those things and who could possibly coordinate everybody doing them in just the right amounts at just the right time so as to bring together this this consumer item. That costs us two dollars. That's like a miracle if you're not sure about how that happens i don't know what to tell you. That's a wonderment. it's a miracle and so what it's showing us is how it's possible for us to flourish and live together peacefully peacefully where no one steals from anybody else. Nobody aggressives against anybody else. Nobody harms anybody else. But just through our own natural activities of providing for our families which we have an obligation to do Because if you do not provide for your for your own household you're you are worse than a heathen then to me. This is like one of the most beautiful things in the world. Is that when you when you get bureaucracy. Out of the way when there's no guy shouting orders of people through a bullhorn and extraordinary order not chaos but order spontaneously emerges and. That's a very appealing world to me where we treat each other as i treat you as an end in yourself. You're not a means to my ends. I don't issue orders to you to satisfy my desires. You are an end in yourself. And i treat you that way. I don't just grab things that belong to you. I don't interfere in your plans. You are an end in yourself. And i think that's the kind of society we should want. It's a it's a real struggle with politics and religion. I think because for me. It's like i want to chesterton wrote. We tend to make politics.

"Of the answer is well. If there's if there's power to be had and money to be made by doing a particular thing people are going to be drawn to that particular thing and right now. They've got a pretty good scheme going whereby they educate the kids into thinking that it's good and right that they should be ruled over by why's overlords who know better than they do. What's best for them. And by coincidence those people get to collect taxes and lorded over them and enjoy power and privilege and wealth at the expense of the rest of the public. That's a pretty good gripped you know. Kind of griff. Ter- approach so. It's very very hard to resist as an i essay there are. There's a reason and this would take the entire episode. But there's a reason that people who tend to be in education support this arrangement and so kids grow up thinking. well look i remember all the presidents. Were looking down on me from the school room. Wall all the presidents from george washington all the way up to the present. We're looking down on me with their benign visages as i did my work and so they're inclined to look at them as people who were just innocently pursuing the common good but if instead if walmart ran the schools and ascended the president's they put everybody on the walmart board of directors up there and the kids went home and said well. There's no questioning walmart. I mean i see. They're nice faces up on the wall and they're paying for the school. They must be good. We would all think that was really creepy. But if the kids come home and say oh my goodness where would we be without these great presidents. I'd probably be dead in a ditch or earning ten cents. An hour or my computer monitor would be exploding in my face. If it weren't for these people we would think well. Yeah he's just being patriotic. Say.

"Fill the rest of the audience in on what heaven's name is going on here. I've gotten a reputation for myself because when there's some hot topic in the news i release a free e book about it so it was the police. I got an e book on the police. If it's these crazy lockdowns. I got an e book on that when health care the i remember now that we have have had all the lockdowns cove and stuff. It's hard to remember things like several years ago. Healthcare was a really contentious topic like people were accusing you of wanting to murder. Tens of thousands of people because of your opinion on obamacare. So i released an e book and i have several e books of the style where the title is called. Is something like your facebook. Friends are wrong about healthcare or your facebook friends are wrong about guns and i just bought domain names that we're just sitting there so i bought your friends are wrong dot com. Why was that available. And i bought wrong about guns dot com and this has just been a blast so i also did your facebook friends of wrong about the lockdown. So i did all this. But i do it because it i mean. From my point of view it helps me scratch niche. When there's a contentious topic out there. I want to have the definitive answer. And you can can produce an e book and release it very quickly and secondly when you get the book which doesn't cost anything i give them away. You get on my mailing list. You think. I don't wanna get any emails yes you do. You want to get my emails. Because there dan all live forgot. Babylon doggone it. They're darn good and entertaining and full of meat you can use against some of the mid wits encounter online like that. I think what we know what. Why don't i give one away now if as long as somebody brought it up one of the things i've been doing over the past year is publicizing charts. Where all i'll say all right. Here's a here's here. All the midwestern states now one of them reopened completely on february. I can you pick out which one it is. And it's all we haven't labeled them now you would think if it reopened while according to the conventional wisdom. It's death number should be like this. I mean it should be the vertical line on the graph but as it turns out by an oddball coincidence all the lines look identical no matter what policy the state enforced and so i said well how about that. You couldn't figure out which state it was and yet you would have thought that state would be a giant graveyard. Maybe this should make you rethink your anyway. So i came up with an e book called cova charts. Cnn forgot so you. Can you can get that over at charts. They forgot dot com. So here's my e. book day. All right well okay. So another one from our superfan whose initials are 'em again What are you going to do. When they laminate the index card of popular opinion. Yeah so again. I'm going to be the. I'll be the one brief. And people might tagline is setting fire to or shredding the three by five card allowable opinion because as you may have noticed there are certain things that we are allowed to think and say and there are other things that if you think say them. Well you're backward evil anti-science whatever. The latest thing is so you're supposed to confine yourself to the debate framework that the new york times has graciously laid out for it so we can argue about whether we should have a top federal income tax rate of forty point three percent or thirty nine point one percent that they're perfectly happy if that's the kind of debate we're having but if we asked whether we should have a federal income tax now that one see that's not allowed you weren't you paying attention you're supposed to be debating this marginal fringe question or well should should the supreme court impose this doctrine on all schools and neighborhoods or that one. Now if you say well wait a minute. I don't think it's really up to the supreme court to do that period regardless of what it is see again. You're not really paying the new york. Times has an authorized you to think that way so certainly if we talk about nullification well they never approved that crazy idea. You're supposed to sit there as a conservative or libertarian. Your job is to be a good loser who just sits there and takes it while the left wing establishment. Doles out abuse. You're supposed to just sit there and take it. You're not supposed to resist. So i fight against that on the old. Tom would show and so. Yeah so i guess if they laminated that the card what would we. I guess it is the idea that that makes it fireproof hacking into pieces. There's some industrial strength shredders. That could little come on right. It gets scissors figure something out. Where america was mozart a red. I can't answer that one. That's a reference to murray rothbart. One act play about what it was like being an ayn rand circles. But i'll i'm going to let that one can we. Can we can rapid-fire. These anarchism is such a good idea. Why are there. No anarchist governments. Why are there no square circles. If circularity such a good i. I mean there are other. There is another form of that question which does get asked which is how come if libertarianism is so good why don't i find any libertarian societies. If there are a lot of answers to that question i some. Societies are more libertarian than others. I have an article somewhere online on on this exact question but.

"Crap. I look in all seriousness. I love the honest to goodness. I love the guy of so. I'll say i actually asked this question. I had matt welsh on my podcast now. That name might not mean much to some of your listeners. But matt welsh has been associated with reason magazine for a long time and there was a little bit of a spat between reason magazine and me and i i don't i don't wanna fight with people i honestly don't and so michael said you know you two should should hash this out. So we both went on michael's podcast and then we each went on each other's program. So i had matt well. John and the very first question. I asked i said now. Look you and i have been tiptoeing around this and we have to. He's thinking i'm going to ask him about rothbart. Some controversial figure and i said but we just need to get this question on the table. What do you like best about michael. So he's off. Okay that i am but what he said was was quite similar. My own answer. Which is his loyalty malice again. If you don't know michael mouses follow me on twitter you'll never be the same again. Your brain will be more but in a good way. It's a good kind of warping that occurs when you follow malice. But he is a. He's a very loyal friend if he's your friend he's your friend through thick and thin and i saw that the very first time. I met him very first time. I met him when you would think you know you're trying to be friendly very first time. You you know you wouldn't really try to open up pandora's box or or cause controversy. Just want to become friends. And i made a comment about somebody. It turns out he likes respects very much and instead of just letting it pass. It's just in the interest of of keeping our first meeting pleasant whatever he gently but firmly pushed back against an explain the merits of this person and i remember thinking. Wow if he'll do that for this person you know. I guess he just does that for his friends. And that's that's how he's the kind of guy some terrible is happening in my life and he'll get on the phone for an hour and a half with me and we'll work it up and there just aren't that many people in this world like that and he doesn't always give away his softy side online and he seems like he's tough as nails sometimes but he is deep down a softy tree at twitter michael malice in real life. Michael mauser. not exactly the same person and say you've talked about michael malice longer than ron paul. I don't know. I had a self because over the course of my career. I've trust me. I've talked about ron paul. Another question from superfan. What's with all the books.

"Question that they asked him all right. You know what. I'm going to give an honest answer to that question when a time it ahead of time or nearby. Put a little clock here. Maybe do one minute all right. Now ron paul. Let's hear are so ron. Paul was a multi term congressman who first entered congress in nineteen seventy six served until eighty four then left for a while and came back in ninety six ran for president twice as a republican. Once as a libertarian and unlike everybody else he managed to bring up issues like the federal reserve. What causes boom bust cycles. Whether it's a good idea for the us government to have a military presence as far flung as it is but beyond that he would say things to audiences that didn't wanna hear them so he'd go down to florida and say we shouldn't have the embargo against cuba he'd be in south carolina and say we need to end the drug war so he didn't use focus groups or whatever he just appealed to people that their natural sense of what's right and wrong and what. We ought to find appealing a politician. Somebody who just tells us the truth regardless of what we wanna hear and he made he got young people to read thousand page economic treatises. Whereas if you try to ask yourself. What did rick santorum accomplish. No one even remembers who he was. It's been sixty seconds. You're done i did. I was mentally counting the seconds. Because i actually didn't have a clo- okay. Well we have Question number two from super fans nullification. Didn't we settle that issue with the whole civil war thing. okay now. i don't know if these are meant to be like questions that they know. I've answered all right no problem i'll do it well. I what is nullification. Because i don't want to assume. I don't like when people just use crazy lingo as if the whole world knows what it means. This happens all the time. I don't know well when the fed buys securities. Okay you've already lost half the country. Why are you talking like this anyway. So nullification is the idea that the states have to be able to challenge the federal government if it violates the constitution that if the federal government has a monopoly on interpreting the constitution it will interpret it in its own favor and that the entire history of the early republic demonstrates that the united states was not meant to be a single indivisible blob it was a collection of societies each with its own rights and liberties that's why the constitution refers to the united states in the plural. The united states are and we see this in fact in my book nullification. I go through all this forgotten early. History of the sovereignty of the peoples of the states and that this was understood by everyone north and south alike northern states appeal to the principle of nullification if anything even more often than the southern states did the northern states referred to it to fight against thomas. jefferson's embargo eighteen. O seven to nine. We see daniel webster. The consummate northern unionist saying that if during the war of eighteen twelve the federal government should attempt to the mad project of conscripting men into the military. It would be up to massachusetts to resist that so this this is just normal talk. This was normal. This is how you keep. The federal government in check is not by waving a piece of paper and its face. Oh look it's the constitution. It's a magic amulet. This will protect our liberties. This is not plausible. There needs to be some genuine pushback now in terms of whether the civil war settled this well. First of all the civil war was not fought over nullification. Secondly the northern states used it. If from what. I can see from what i've chronicle more often than the southern ones did. And actually if you look at jefferson davis farewell address to the senate. He's complaining about nullification. He's complaining about the northern states nullifying the fugitive slave laws which indeed they did in multiple forms so that not only that i don't think it's a civilized person comes to the conclusion that intellectual arguments are settled by violence. So you're telling me that. If the nazis had one world war two then i guess. The whole question of antisemitism has been settled. Who would think that way right. Or who would look at the indian wars and say well guess. The question of the plains indians has been settled by that. No one thinks that way. If you came home to your parents after getting beaten up on the playground they would not say. Well i guess that settles that right. I guess you were in the wrong. No one thinks that way except here we feel like well our war settled that's throng way to think about. Don't get mad at us. Get mad at the superfan. No i'm speaking to a hypothetical hypothetical superfan asks. What do you like. Best about michael malice. No not this. She can't that guy. Leave me in peace. Everywhere i turn. Jeez i don't know how he's done this to me. And if you don't know who michael malices. He's a celebrity ghost writer who was made famous by me. His multiple appearances on the tom would show and who now thinks he can outshine me.

"Why this question my wing of is doing great. It's growing and full of energy and youth. I think i'm the oldest guy in it. At this point. I used to be the youngster. And now i'm you know. I'm like the elder statesman at this point. But that's the way. I want it and of course then. We have the the libertarian world. That is desperate for approval. And i'm telling you if you are a heterodox if you have a heterodox perspective and you're desperate for approval that's a bad combination because something's gotta give their and it won't be the desperation for approval so that's a bad thing and we've had some libertarians. Who have not been as sound as you would think. Libertarians would be during lockdowns. So that's all bad but the silver lining of this is that it has awakened the sleeping giant. Which is all the normal libertarians around the country who are trying to read. Reclaim the word libertarian. So you're the godfather of libertarians. Kind of. I don't know that i'd use that term but let's just say i've been around a while all right. Well do we want to start with our superfan questions. Get some superfan questions. We yeah we let our fans know that the you were coming on and we got questions from some super fans so question number one. Who is ron paul. Are you kidding me the.

Filmmaker steve oldfield. Today is latest. Project is the documentary rush to judgment which was screened at pork fest and we'll be also featured at the anthem festival at freedom fest in south dakota this month and it's about what happened to those covington catholic high school students. When a short misleading video clip went viral and the whole world condemn these boys for apparently being insensitive and displaying their white privilege. And this and that when in fact the reality couldn't have been farther from that and this document goes very deeply into this and examines a lot of aspects of it that even i myself who spent a lot of time on it hadn't thought of so it's very important checkout rush to judgment documentary dot com steve. Welcome to the show. Thanks really a pleasure to be here on a big fan of. Listen all your podcast. Thank you so much. It was great to meet you at pork fest and to get to see your film myself so i can speak from a position of. I can be informed when we talk about. Let's first start with your background. How did you come to be involved in this documentary project. Well i was one of those kids who grew up watching the evening news with walter cronkite. From time. i was four years old and wanted to be a journalist for years and years months northwestern's middle school of journalism where i founded northwestern student television back in nineteen eighty-five. It still goes on today as a different name northwestern news now i think they call it. I was a tv news guy for twenty five years i worked. I was one of those news. Nomads tom. If you're familiar with that term every two or three years you jump to a different market and hopes of a better gig. And i was denver. Richmond detroit salt lake orlando miami new york. La and never really felt fulfilled to be honest with the longer we got into it. The more the business changed. If you remember walter. Cronkite was considered the most trusted man in america back in the seventies and eighties. And i've seen the business completely go to hell. Since then so i decided i would move back home and start teaching. I teach at thomas more university. I'm communication documentary filmmaking and then started doing and long-range projects where i could really control the content instead of doing a two minute story for the news. That's kind of how that all app. When did this whole incident occurred was at twenty twenty or nineteen twenty nineteen. Yeah okay. I should say that. The school at the heart of this whole story when same amount is called covington catholic which is in kentucky right by cincinnati ohio and i coincidentally went to the competing school having ten latin so i grew up my whole life. Really hating covington catholic. Because i didn't get to go to state and tennis. Because i was beaten by kid from cub cath and and never really liked the school at all. And then as an adult. I was doing a leadership group for high school students. And lo and behold cub kabc kids showed up and they didn't have horns and they weren't horrible people and i even liked their teacher and i did a video for them and twenty eighteen and had all this exclusive video that i owned inside the school and then january twenty nineteen. I get my facebook. And i check it in the morning when i wake up every day. I'm an old guy. Don't check twitter. I check facebook and friends of mine. Northwestern from all over the country in journalism or slamming. This kid who happened to be from covid comcast and i started defending him and saying surely there's more to this story. Don't just believe this picture. I know these kids. They're not monsters. And i started defending cup caf and i'm still in that position now a year and a half later i remember when the whole thing happened. There was a video that you could watch on youtube that had been taken just an amateur video taken by somebody and it was almost two hours long and it allowed you to see the entire context of what happened and i was so sure that the spin being put on this was wrong that i sat down to watch that entire video. I wrote about it and commented on it did podcast episodes on it. It was shocking. What you see in the video if you take the time to wash it now if we hadn't had if for all the things we rightly complain about about the internet today we hadn't had the internet if we'd had to rely on walter cronkite. This kid would never have had his day in court. There would have been that thirty second clip way out of context and his life would have been ruined. You're right. I would have expected you to of 'cause you're that kind of guy but it's so sad it's so many journalists who are and some of the premier organizations in the country didn't bother that little clip was enough for them and i think part of the problem with all this. Tom is that particularly inside the beltway as we call it inside the washington d. c. corridor. All of these guys are friends with each other on twitter and facebook and if one of them puts it out there like the washington post or cnn. They all considered the gold standard and then share it to and people have to remember if you're sharing someone else's post it's pretty much like you're putting your own stamp of approval on it and that's what happened in this case once. The washington post started doing stories and all the other people that they just assumed everything about. It was accurate and they were all terribly wrong..

"His mind. Well yeah he's he's a guy not to do the whole podcast about scott horton but i think this is a bigger point. I mean i think people can kind of model themselves in his mold in that you know. I don't think. I don't see scott as someone who's looking to. He's not looking to gain power in this. he's just looking to get message out. And i think we could all learn from this when we are taking podcast appearances. And i've done this in the past. Maybe you someone asks you to come in their show. And it's you know it's a really small show with only a couple listeners. If you listeners still important. I mean if a podcast has fifty listeners twenty-five listeners that's still twenty five people that can hear the message of liberty that can hear your message and that could be brought into this movement and who knows what they can. Do you plant. Plant a seed in their mind. And who knows what what it's going to turn into with podcasts. Feel like i talked to so many people who have a podcast and they start one then. They get frustrated because they don't turn the tom woods right away or scott word right away and it's like if you just imagine when you look at your downloads. Whatever it is maybe it's twenty people. Maybe it's hundred people. Maybe it's five thousand people. Just imagine those people in a room and you walk into the room and you're talking to all those people i mean. That's that's powerful. And i think more people need to think of podcasting as a means to communicate and a means to really get this message out there rather than like a way to make a profit because to be perfectly honest a lot of podcasters the vast majority of podcasters. You're not gonna make a profit so it better be. You'd better be talking about an podcasts about something that you're passionate about. Yeah well and i think it helps to that people like you or i. I mean you've been at it longer than i have started in two thousand eighteen. And i've been grinding you know and i've made all the mistakes you can make. Can i had to figure all of it out here over and over and over again. Learn as soon as i get one thing figured out. I got him another thing. I gotta deal with. And you know. And i've watched my numbers go from from you know sixty downloads up to two thousand downloads. Then dropped back down to three hundred downloads and then gel back. And you're like it's it's not it's not consistent it it's always you're always grinding. You're always moving. You're always trying to adjust. You're always trying to learn in and i would never destroy the discourage anybody from starting a podcast with. Don't start a podcast money. That's that's absolutely insane. Don't do that you have to. You have to talking to people about subjects that you find interesting before anybody else is going to be attracted to your podcast. One hundred percent agree with that. So let's let's continue down that path. I do wanna talk about berg. We'll come back to that later. But you know talking about interesting topics. And i know your podcast wide range of topics. Your interview interviewed me. So i'm i'm i'm a wide range of topics myself but you bring a lot of different characters. What i listened recently. What's the name of the podcast. It was It was the guy is like a music. Podcast with like i haven't listened to it You're talking about david sanchez. Lead vocals of havoc. No no. oh well anyway. It was the point is i don't know you have cast of characters that you bring on so like when you're looking to bring on guests what do you are you just looking at talk to interesting people would would sure I guess what do you look for when you look when you look for. Yeah no i mean. It's not just always interesting people. Sometimes it's like okay. You know like when when. I spoke to joe dawn on all i really didn't know much about justin Before we spoke. I knew he was big into liberty movement. And i'm like well you know my listeners might want to hear from this guy you know but then there are some people that i like like when i interviewed the huntsmen about supply chains on. Some people are going to learn something here. You know like this is important information. Like what's going on with the supply chain for the last year. Is wires meat. Shortages wire their toilet paper shortages. What's happening with the supply chain so that you know you can get information out of it but in the end i don't know i guess the person has to have a certain type of mind set a certain type of Kind of a certain type of persona. I don't want somebody that comes across. Like smug because you come across smug. I don't wanna talk to you probably and so. I wanna talk to people that i think we can produce an interesting conversation that have interesting things to say that i can learn. Something from audience can learn something from and we can bounce ideas off of each other. So yeah no. I don't know if that helps narrow it down. Well i think the way you do your interviews. And when i was talking about is go s- jail with burto. Oh yeah who. I'd never heard of but that was a super interesting conversation. But but yeah you talk about. Not bringing on smug people i will say i have brought on smug people and we'll continue to but what i try to do. Is i try to take the smugness out of them. And i've had i've had people tell me after. I interviewed them. These people that have been you know interviewed on cable news. Or whatever like no one's ever asked me these questions before like well that's because you really haven't been interviewed you've just on these little five minute segments on on cable news right. Yeah yeah you know. I got the biggest compliment the other day. We were talking about scott earlier. I'm just gonna bring him up one more time but when he did that. Podcast with pete and they brought up your zero and he he. He introduced years zero. He said oh. We can't forget. Tommy everybody's friend. I'm like i love that. Like that's how i wanted to be. I want people to be relaxed talking to me. Podcast i i feel like i do my podcast for blue collar guys. You know like. I'm collar guy. I'm like what do i want to listen to..

"View but that's not a free market view so the the real free market view comes from the austrian school of economics and murray rothbart in particular in that important book from nineteen. Sixty three. Still a great book. Nothing has changed of course since then so still a great book much more recently. We have the financial crisis and the housing boom and bust culminating in two thousand eight. And i'll tell you. I did my very best to try to stop them from saying to us. Oh we know what caused that. That was capitalism. And that just goes to show what happens when we give you stupid. Rubes too much freedom. And now you're overlords need to be in charge more. Well okay okay. There's no way. I was going to get them to stop saying that. Of course. I tried to stop that from becoming the conventional wisdom by at least providing alternative at least providing a different point of view. And of course that was in my book meltdown. And incidentally meltdown. You can get the audio book version at tom. Woods audio dot com.

Let you keep the free audiobook and i still get my royalty. So doesn't matter to me how you get it so tom woods audio dot com is how to get. I bet. most people don't remember this story or maybe weren't listening to me at the time moore or reading me the time but the man who read the audiobook for meltdown wrote to me he said look. I'm an obama voter. And when i got the assignment to read your book and i saw that it was from republishing publishing. I've had my books published by a lot of publishers columbia university press basic books random house. But i've also had them published by reggae. Which is a conservative publishing house. That's been around since nineteen forty seven anyway. The guy said. I saw this book and i saw that it was from regmi. I thought oh here. We go another another right-wing screed 'cause i think he had recently read one of g. Gordon liddy books. And g gordon liddy had his merits but i remember flipping through one of his books at a library once and it was just fluff. There was just no substance in there at all just a bunch of his outraged opinions but with no substance and i guess that's what he expected meltdown to be and he said this book has really really made me think. Because you make a very convincing case. And i thought isn't that nice. He didn't have to write to me like this. That's not part of the job description that made me very happy so meltdown did have a reasonable impact. It was a new york times bestseller for ten weeks. And i got to do a lot of media mostly right of center but not exclusively and you may say. That's preaching to the choir. No it's not not on the federal reserve. You think anybody in the conservative movement was talking about the federal reserve and they were all floundering in two thousand eight figure out what the explanation was. They weren't going to say the federal reserve mostly because none of knew anything about it and secondly because nobody else ever talks about it and oh my goodness we are the official conservative movement. We can't have the left calling us cranks because we deeply care with these people. Think about us. You're never gonna get the right analysis from that kind of attitude that they were reduced to saying well. The community reinvestment act of one thousand nine hundred seventy seven from thirty years earlier caused him. Okay well. I don't think that's particularly convincing so i wrote this book precisely for that reason. So that even if a su- nami of overwhelmed the country there would still at least be a record. There'd still at least be a dissident voice with a convincing argument well back on episode eighteen eighty five. I interviewed filmmaker. Who along with a team of other filmmakers is making the ultimate documentary on all this and this is extremely important even if everything opens back up even if we never hear about covid nineteen ever again this has to get done so that at least there is a dissident voice out there for when they try to pull some crazy thing again and they say well we saved from covid. So we're going to save you from this thing. We need to have not because it'll convince the crazy people but because it will convince regular people and maybe some influential people we do have a little influence here and there and he explained to us. What the vision behind was what they're going to do it with the charts and you know the charts. Do not tell the story found. She wants told and they're going use the damning quotations like Not really understanding. He's not really sure why. Texas hasn't done badly since getting rid of its masks or the restrictions being lifted and everything being fine in various places. They're not really sure. Slavic ostra home vilocci and of course. They're doing this anonymously. Because they don't want their careers. Ruined and i can tell you. These people all have distinguished careers. One of them was interviewed by sad russell on his unregistered podcast and fat actually went ahead and asked him what i had not ask them which is what kind of films have you worked on the past and they've got they've got credentials like you wouldn't believe so. This is going to be fantastic. I realize you might feel hesitant about supporting a project where you don't know who the people behind that are. But i am putting my own name and reputation on the line here to tell you. These are good skilled people and this will be an important project and joanne scouse. And who's been running the anthem film festival for freedom fest year after year after year. She also vouch for them. So the link to support what they did what they're doing is tom woods. Dot com slash doc. Dc for documentary. Tom woods dot com slash doc. Now as i told you. I actually put ten grand my own money into this thing because after over a year of covering this. I'm convinced that this is the issue of our time. And i wanna do what i ten. So those of you out there who have the means to help any amount is welcome and i urge you to to help and be a part of this but especially those of significant means for a check for ten grand is like nothing. Please please consider this because this is urgently necessary. So check out tom. Woods dot com slash. Doc and then our getting all this stuff about the delta variants and yet we look at the numbers and it does not appear any more deadly than whatever the original was you look at countries where it started to take over in. The numbers are fine. So the hysteria. Here's a surprise. Hysteria bears no resemblance to the actual facts. Well there's other new in this whole thing right so i'm not particularly concerned about the delta variant but i'm reading over and over about the devastation. It's gonna do now. Maybe it will do terrible devastation. And i'll look foolish for saying this. Okay i doubt it and another thing even if things did return to normal in the us there is the rest of the world to think about those are also people and what's being done to people around the world is unconscionable and i get that an awful lot of the people in those countries think this is a good idea. I get that those people are hopeless. There's.

"Sentencing people to death. It's that simple all right. So that being the case if there's people out if i know the right here commenting For people out there. That would agree. Generally with the message of the political message of tom. Woods of day. Smith probably your own political beliefs as well sure in early speaking i agree with them but the way i agree with that so i guess the real difference here comes down to tactics and how people should be time considering the current situation. Yeah so so actually instead of asking.

"Not gonna help. Yeah and if you've been following like tom woods is research on this he always has all these graphs up that. Show that the masks like that. They make things worse necessarily but they absolutely don't make anything better in any place where there's been a mandate it doesn't change the rate of infection at all. Just a huge push for vaccinations for kobe and I always thought it was sort of the concept that my medical information was private something that only might medical. You know provider. Many people thought that absolutely yes. That's a great point. So how are we gonna somehow turn around and use that information as sort of a passport decide whether or not i get to do things like go to a particular college or travel or just things being talked about through to a concert or a sports game or something like that. Yeah i i don't know the answer to that question and what really bothers me. Is that no officials from hip or any of the medical agencies have stepped up and gone. Hey wait a minute. That's odd yeah. Why aren't any of these medical professionals like from hip or from any of the privacy agencies going. Hey hey wait a minute. This violates medical privacy. That's already in place. And i think anybody should be allowed to get a vaccine if they want the vaccine but the idea of making it basically mandatory by like what you say not being able to go to specific college unless you get it is crazy for something that we don't even have one hundred percent like they haven't proved within a shadow of a doubt that it is absolutely something that's going to help us. Not you know. Have covid in the future or help us like recover from kobe better. They haven't even proven that how how it a requirement it's crazy. I noticed that processed foods disgusted me. Get and i mean i couldn't tastes than but i could smell them. That's your serum right. So for example. I made just a grilled cheese sandwich right regular ass white bread some process cheese food slices you know from the local grocer. You know what i mean..
