Clifton Duncan was an accomplished Broadway actor who had graduated from an extremely selective elite program, and was making television appearances alongside people you would know. His star was most certainly on the rise. Then the mandates came, and Clifton declined the shot. He now waits tables. Well, the crazies didn't just ruin Clifton's career; they're in the process of destroying American theater, period, as Clifton explains in this episode. But there's good news: Clifton wants to develop a one-man show on the life and ideas of Thomas Sowell. Let's help him make it happen!

I met John Bush 17 years ago, when we were both spreading the word about Ron Paul. These days, John is devoted to building the institutions a free and decent society will need, even in our unfree landscape. If all we do is react to the latest crazy thing coming from the politicos, we'll never build anything.

It's not just this field or that field: there is a systematic sickness in academic and in intellectual life in general, in which preposterously false things are believed, and based on foundations that are never examined. This is one of my favorite episodes ever, and my thanks to Steve Patterson for this excellent conversation.
