The Tom Woods Show
There are only two people in the world for whom I've ever offered a testimonial: Ben Settle and my guest today, Michael Cheney. Michael has been producing products and dominating affiliate leaderboards since at least the year 2000. He creates promotions that don't bore you to death, which is why they do so well. And he's taught me a boatload of knowledge that I have put to very good use; last year I was able to make substantial donations to causes you and I believe in, thanks to what I learned from Michael.
 
His advice is worth taking to heart.

The indoctrination aspect of "public education" has become more pronounced and obvious in recent months. Ron Paul and I discuss that and other outrages with a system everyone defends and takes for granted, and say a few words in defense of the homeschooling alternative.
 
This episode is drawn from my recent appearance on the Ron Paul Liberty Report.

Owen Benjamin, who has had a successful career in entertainment, has been having problems with venues canceling on him after rival comedians report him for unapproved thoughts (none of which is actually unreasonable or outside the bounds of legitimate comedy, but you knew that). Opponents even invent things about Owen, or create bot accounts on Twitter to make him look bad. It's crazy.
 
We recorded this interview 48 hours before it aired. Since that time, Owen's Twitter account -- @OwenBenjamin -- has been suspended, and his ability to livestream on his YouTube channel has been revoked.

Mitch Toland, once an Obama supporter, made his way into Austrian economics and libertarianism in a most unusual way: his economics professor had him write a paper on Hayekian triangles (a graphical depiction of Austrian capital theory), and this wound up leading him to Ron Paul. He shares his story, plus his venture into politics, in today's episode.

The general public sure thinks they are -- and sometimes, economists give them good reason to think so. Bob Murphy joins me to discuss (and critique) the Coase Theorem, which purports to solve an important economic puzzle, but which makes methodologically suspect moves that it appears only Austrians may have noticed.
 
(P.S. We're postponing the discussion of Public Choice, mentioned at the beginning, until a future episode.)

With talk of uncompensated expropriation of white landowners making international news, I thought it was a good time to speak to Ernst Roets, a staple of South African television and deputy CEO of Afriforum, to find out what's going on.

Scott Horton joins me to discuss the views -- on Iraq, North Korea, Russia, Afghanistan, and Iran -- of John Bolton, who was recently tapped to replace H.R. McMaster as National Security Advisor. Check out this episode and you'll be better briefed on the subject than pretty much anyone, anywhere.

Here's how we learn about so-called landmark legislation in school: your wise public servants identified a problem, and then put their heads together in a disinterested, dispassionate way to solve it, and improve life for everyone.
 
In fact, the real roots of legislation often turn out to be far more mundane. The Sherman Antitrust Act, as Patrick Newman explains, is one such example.
