This is one of my favorite interviews of all time: I had a chance to appear on the Viva & Barnes podcast, hosted by attorneys Viva Frei and Robert Barnes, and I introduced their audience to the Mises Institute's brand of plumb-line libertarianism. The response was fantastic.

One of my prized possessions is my Eric July "Monetize Your Haters" T-shirt. If there's one thing better than ignoring or defeating your enemies, it's becoming more prosperous because of their attacks. Jordan Peterson once said, "I have figured out how to monetize the Social Justice Warriors." Eric is a champ at this, and we share our strategies in this fun episode.

We all use the term, but is there really a "black community" (or, for that matter, an LGBT community, or anything similar)? Apart from basic demands for respect and a fair chance, do all black people think alike, which is what the idea of a "black community" strongly implies? Eric July week continues with a discussion of these and related issues.
