Default Re: The Bromance (John McWhorter & Glenn Loury)

Glad to hear that the bromance will continue.

Glenn seemed very on edge in this episode, more so than usual. The problem, Glenn, is not that libertarianism receives too little attention in the US. The Koch Bros. and their allies have made sure of this. People gave up their liberties to do this and that for a reason. I can think of about 10 very important reasons why there is no absolute right to plant whatever you like on your private property.

Ron Paul is a lunatic who happens to be isolationist. The isolationism is just as stupid as everything else he stands for. I wish that Glenn had talked more about why gold-buggery is idiocy, or what we are to make of "rational and efficient markets" that value gold at $1,600 per ounce.
