Chris Williams of Podsworth Media joins Doug Stuart to discuss how the actions of govt, big tech, and the corporate press in the COVID era have impacted the liberty movement. They discuss the varying reactions to mask and vaccine mandates among different camps of libertarians, the red-pilled vs. blue-pilled paradigm, the growth of new factions in the liberty movement, the abandonment of libertarian principles by many self-proclaimed libertarians, and the abandonment of the libertarian name by many who still hold libertarian principles.
Most libertarians defend their politics with a simple starting point: self-ownership and the non-aggression principle. Christians have often raised issues with the concept of self-ownership, since as the Creator of the universe, isn't God really the owner of everything? Todd Lewis, a recent guest on the podcast, joins Doug and Norman for a long-form civil discussion on whether or not these principles are compatible with Christian thinking.
