Episode 396 has Skyler giving his commentary on the following topics from r/blackpeopletwitter and r/whitepeopletwitter: the problem with determining how long police officers should be trained before given a badge and gun; Donald Trump dying and haunting the White House along with the ghosts of the slaves who built it; Monica Lewinsky’s willingness to “take one for the team” and give Trump a blowjob in the Oval Office; Booger says “To hell with [Trump] and all those who enable him.” and I agree; why only a fusion movement can stop authoritarianism, and why that’s a bigger problem than white supremacy.
As far as I know, intolerant, thin-skinned, anti-intellectual educators have been around for… well, forever. What has changed is the Orwellian nature of their reaction to dissent.
Episode 388 has Skyler giving his commentary on a quote by Robert Higgs on the fakery, fraud, and force of politics; by Ron Paul on freedom and responsibility, and another on the intolerance of authoritarians; and by Jeremy Locke on the difference between principle and law.
Unwanted bureaucracy steals your time as surely as taxation steals your money. Bureaucracy and taxation usually go together.

Mark Zuckerberg was the first to create a program we now refer to as a social media network, and was thereby successful in establishing Facebook (more properly known now as Fascistbook) as the “industry standard.” When I first joined a decade ago, FB was relatively unfettered. You could write and post freely, with little chance of being banned or censored. All of that, in more recent times, has changed dramatically.
Episode 368 welcomes back Ian Mayes to have a chat with Skyler on the following topics: working in the neighborhood where George Floyd was killed; his experience with the Minneapolis protests and riots; Kyle Rittenhouse; lockdown created tinderbox across the country and world; Minneapolis “defund the police” campaign; lack of real anti-authoritarian sentiment; political coalition building and guilt by association; civil wars and anarchists; Portland neighborhood “wake up” protests (Reason interview); voluntaryist welfare actions, ie. silver linings; restorative justice systems (Kibbe interview); and more.
If you’re sickened and outraged by the heinously evil crap that a lot of people in power have done, especially to children, GOOD! You should be. There are some evil shits who need to stop existing.
You’re not “progressive.” You’re RE-gressive. You’re anti-progress. You actively seek the destruction of progress and freedoms that have taken literally thousands of years of bloodshed, toil, suffering, and sacrifice to bring even this far.
Out of all the major political movements on Earth, none is more Orwellian than “social justice.” No other movement is so dedicated to achieving the opposite of what its slogans proclaim – or so aggressive in the warping of language. While every ideology is prone to a little doublethink, “social justice” is doublethink at its core.
