Ken and I had St Patty's Day with a lil green PBR and some Rory's Story Cubes. Patrick couldn't make it so the alternative title for this episode is "Patrick isn't here and he's a dumb butt"

 

But all kidding aside we had a great assortment of stories to tell thanks to the story cubes Ken procured from the local Target. We learned that David can't pull off an Irish accent and that Ken has a thing for mixing Trump and Sanders voices together. All in all, it was a good night. 

 

Enjoy!

Caryn Ann Harlos is communications director for the Libertarian party of Colorado and the Colorado state coordinator of the Libertarian Party Radical caucus. She’s also region 1 representative of the Libertarian National Committee, representing Alaska, Arizona, Colorado, Hawaii, Kansas, Montana,Utah, Washington, and Wyoming.


A quick Google search defines libertarianism as “an extreme laissez-faire political philosophy advocating only minimal state intervention in the lives of citizens.”

Anarcho-capitalism is defined as “(also known as “libertarian anarchy” or “market anarchism” or “free market anarchism”) is a libertarian and individualist anarchist political philosophy that advocates the elimination of the state in favor of individual sovereignty in a free market.”

For those who are still struggling, the DNC can be defined as “more govt involvement to fix the world is a good thing”, the GOP can be defined as “5-10% less govt involvement than the DNC is a good thing”, and the LP can be defined as “little to no govt involvement is a good thing.” Why is that - you know what your needs are and how to best meet them yourself and the govt can’t do that and shouldn’t do that. LP statement of principles - “We hold that all individuals have the right to exercise sole dominion over their own lives, and have the right to live in whatever manner they choose, so long as they do not forcibly interfere with the equal right of others to live in whatever manner they choose.”

 

This episode we are going to discuss a few major points:

  • Top misconceptions/myths about libertarianism
  •  How is libertarianism different from conservatism?
  • What is wrong with the GOP party that the libertarian party had to be formed back in the 70s and is growing?

 

Libertarians seem like they live in their ivory towers with their noses in the air questioning all of the “experts” while having no clue what they are talking about or offering any solutions...what is their deal? Why can’t they make their message easy to understand and their goals something that is attainable?

Isn’t the problem with libertarianism people? People are too lazy and stupid to handle all the responsibility that no state would require them to take upon themselves?

Would libertarianism work with other states/countries that aren’t libertarian? How would Germany send the chocolate over to America without some connection with the state?

Do you need everyone in America to “buy into” libertarianism for it to work? Could we potentially have a free state and a bunch of states around it not be libertarian?

What about total depravity of man? How do you get a bunch of depraved people to agree to the NAP?

Abortion - on the statement of principles, the first point is “(1) the right to life—accordingly we support the prohibition of the initiation of physical force against others” - how can the party hold to the right to life and be pro-choice? Is there a movement within the party to be pro-life or is the main problem with the pro-life movement the fact that it will always require a state? Party Platform “Recognizing that abortion is a sensitive issue and that people can hold good-faith views on all sides, we believe that government should be kept out of the matter, leaving the question to each person for their conscientious consideration.”

Is there a more effective way to communicate the ideas of liberty? Does the party have this idea that if people in other parties have legislation that increases liberty that the libertarian party backs that ideas as well?

Is there much concern to look like the party is appealing to one of the two big parties - Johnson and Weld seemed to favor Clinton instead of Trump

What is the five year plan with the LP to grow it with social media’s attraction to politics rocketing to new heights? Will the LP look to have a Milo Alt-anti-authoritarian type guy come out of the woodwork?

Let's make mortality optional - is this good for Christians to support or not?

 

The Wikipedia on Transhumanism is, "an international and intellectual movement that aims to transform the human condition by developing and making widely available sophisticated technologies to greatly enhance human intellectual, physical, and psychological capacities.[1][2] Transhumanist thinkers study the potential benefits and dangers of emerging technologies that could overcome fundamental human limitations, as well as the ethics[3] of using such technologies.[4] The most common transhumanist thesis is that human beings may eventually be able to transform themselves into different beings with abilities so greatly expanded from the natural condition as to merit the label of posthuman beings."

 

We discuss if this is an anti-Christian movement or if Christians can work alongside transhumanists to potentially live forever via science and tech.

According to Wikipedia Dungeons & Dragons (abbreviated as D&D or DnD) is a fantasy tabletop role-playing game (RPG) originally designed by Gary Gygax and Dave Arneson, and first published in 1974 by Tactical Studies Rules, Inc.(TSR). The game has been published by Wizards of the Coast (now a subsidiary of Hasbro) since 1997. It was derived from miniature wargames with a variation of the Chainmail game serving as the initial rule system.D&D's publication is commonly recognized as the beginning of modern role-playing games and the role-playing game industry.
