Three academics just made public a secret project they had been engaged in for a year: submitting absurd, nonsense articles to major, peer-reviewed journals in gender studies and similar fields -- and getting them published.
 
Whatever it is you're thinking was in those articles, I promise you it's much worse and more ridiculous.

In this juicy talk I do begin with some internecine libertarian wrangling, to be sure, but that's not my primary focus. I cover lots of ways in which we libertarians find ourselves at odds with the culture that surrounds us. The empire's reaction to the death of John McCain was profoundly revealing, for example. The culture of the universities these days is another point of contention. As I show in today's episode, though, when even one courageous person resists and then refuses to back down, millions rally to him.
 
There is a lesson here.

Michael Huemer is a professor of philosophy at the University of Colorado at Boulder and the author of the outstanding libertarian book The Problem of Political Authority. Today he discusses his work in "ethical intuitionism," which holds that (1) there are objective moral truths; (2) we know these through an immediate, intellectual awareness, or 'intuition'; and (3) knowing them gives us reasons to act independent of our desires.

Joseph Stiglitz is something of a celebrity economist, yet he's been grotesquely wrong both economically and morally so often. His case tells us a lot about the American establishment if he is the kind of person they hold up for our admiration. Gene Epstein joins me for the gruesome details.

You do want to listen to this episode, I promise you.
 
Rick DeJesus of the band Adelitas Way says musicians are dead wrong to oppose or fear Spotify, and they're definitely wrong to think they need a major label. His own band had more than one of those, but then, when they realized the label was absorbing all the revenue, struck out on their own. What happened next is what we discuss in this episode....

Stefan Molyneux's work has had nearly half a billion views and hundreds of millions of downloads. He has stirred up controversy among libertarians in recent years, having supported Donald Trump and entertained more controversial topics. So I decided to raise some of these criticisms with him and give him an opportunity to say whatever he liked. The result is this episode, in which (unusual for the Tom Woods Show) the two of us appear together on video.
