The Tom Woods Show (talk radio)

The ideas of Jean-Jacques Rousseau (1712-1778) have been profoundly influential -- and not for the better. We'll discuss his views on the origins of inequality, the role of the legislator, and the place of the individual in political society. Not an episode to skip, trust me.
