About 5 1/2 years ago, I tuned into local talk radio station KFAR 660 early one Saturday morning and caught Patriot’s Lament. For the first time really, I heard a reasoned discussion of political anarchy, but there was also intelligent discussion about libertarian principles. Now we listen regularly.
I don’t buy everything Josh and his evolving slate of cohosts espouse. I still have questions and doubts. Like all pure philosophies, anarchism is a bit utopian and I’m a pragmatist. That said, they (and world events they don’t control) are slowly bringing me around to their point of view.
They’re no one special. They’re not “experts”. There’s not a political science, history or economics degree giving what they say weight. They’re not elites. They’re well-read … extremely well-educated in the areas that interest them, but also well-read in other areas, as evidenced by their answers when people call in. What I particularly like about Josh is that he lets people speak even when he thinks they’re wrong … and then he rebuts them, but not rudely. I appreciate that he stands on the principles of liberty not just for himself – he pays for the airtime, so he could do that … but for those who disagree with him too.
So, check it out. You can listen to them streaming at this link:
Look for the Listen Live button at the top right. And there are also digital archives for the many Saturdays they’ve been on the air.
The show runs from 9 am (15 minutes from now) until noon, Alaska Time.
