Should libertarians make concessions in the political arena in order to advance a better liberty? How the current American political atmosphere made us more trusting of each other? Is a liberal political order amenable to Christianity, and is such an order even possible? Philosopher Kevin Vallier joins us to discuss these things and the contents of his newest book, Must Politics Be War? Restoring Our Trust in the Open Society.

Justin Brierley joins us to talk about his experience bringing atheists and Christian apologists together on his show, as well as his book, "Unbelievable?" where he makes the case for believing in God, and how the Christian story makes the best sense out of life, the universe, and everything.

Economists like competition because competitive markets create what the economist Tim Harford calls "a world of truth": we produce, as he puts it, the right things the right way and in the right proportions, with prices guiding them into the hands of the right people. This "world of truth" makes no assumptions about people's preferences, however, and it is entirely possible that people buy and sell things that corrupt their souls--that they exchange the truth of God for a lie, as it were.

But this does not mean forsaking competition will make things better. In this episode, Art Carden explores the unintended consequences of government intervention to prevent or promote competition as well as implications of the Imago Dei for exchange and the institutions thereof.

Religious liberty is sometimes described as "America's first freedom," but it was only achieved after more than a century of painful experience and with the development of careful arguments in colonial and early republican America. To many people then, the free exercise of one’s religion was not a self-evident right or something that was desirable for any social purpose. Today the rights of conscience are again coming under attack, and Christians need to recover the intellectual framework that makes arguments for religious freedom compelling.

This episode examines foundational documents that early Americans relied on and produced to win the battle for religious liberty. It also provides resources for Christian libertarians who want to engage in the renewed battle for this precious freedom we dare not take for granted.
