The Tom Woods Show

People have asked me to discuss this issue, which I've written a book about, so I decided to make it into a bonus episode. (This episode is my appearance on Roger McCaffrey's Catholic Book Radio podcast.)

Ever since the "liturgical reform" of 1969-70, which yielded the modern Mass with which nearly all Catholics are familiar, Catholic traditionalists have urged the return of the traditional Latin Mass -- for reasons of theology, piety, tradition, beauty, and the like.

The issue was not one of language -- the new Mass can also be said in Latin. The issue was the rite itself, which had never been changed wholesale and by committee.

Gerard Casey is the author of what the brilliant David Gordon is calling the best history of political thought he's ever read. We discuss several of his early chapters, on the sophists, Socrates, Plato, and Aristotle, and what libertarians ought to cheer -- or deplore -- in the their work. Brilliant, and a blast.

We're taught that Alexander Hamilton is one of the indispensable men in the American story. In his new book -- released just today -- How Alexander Hamilton Screwed Up America, historian Brion McClanahan takes on this historical icon. In today's discussion we focus in particular on how the federal courts extended the life of some of Hamilton's worst ideas, which we continue to struggle with today.

Michael Cheney is one of the most successful and sought-after affiliate marketers in the world. (That means he earns commissions selling other people's products online.) He's also the guy I've learned more from as an affiliate marketer myself than anyone else. We discuss his successes and failures, the easy vs. the difficult way to make a living online, and the secret to my own affiliate success.

One group of libertarians accuses a second group of being sellouts. The second group accuses the first group of being purists who make any progress toward the free society possible.
 
Murray N. Rothbard, known in his day as Mr. Libertarian, had something to say about this and other questions of strategy.

Hans-Hermann Hoppe is one of the most significant libertarian thinkers in the world today. Murray Rothbard could not say enough about his brilliance. Unfortunately, his detractors (and even many of his supporters) have never actually read him. So Stephan Kinsella and I devoted this episode to discussing his body of work. Trust me, this is fun and punchy -- especially as it goes along.
