The popular caricature of libertarianism involves our alleged belief in "rugged individualism," and "I don't need help from anybody," etc. Opposing collectivism doesn't mean opposing all groupings of people. And in a world as hostile as this one, we'd darn well better band together in groups dedicated to achieving our goals despite the political system under which we live.

If things are ever going to improve, we need to overcome the very powerful status quo bias that exists among the American population. Most people assume that the way things are is the way they must be, and the best possible way they can be. So even if you live in neither Oregon nor Idaho, you will want to hear my guest, Matt McCaw, discuss the Greater Idaho movement. Here is a case in which one simple change would make virtually everybody involved better off, and the only thing standing in the way is status quo bias.

Henry Bingaman is a master with words: his words have sold $300 million in goods and services for his clients (of whom I am one). He's also a libertarian and a Supporting Listener of the Tom Woods Show, and he made a stunning presentation to my in-person event for my School of Life program. Today we talk about an excellent profession for libertarians, and about Henry's own shift away from his previous work and into specifically helping libertarians, at a time when the rest of the world seems to be against us.

It used to be that you could just grin and bear it through the college-industrial complex. But academia has become so farcical and absurd that it probably needs to be avoided in as many cases as possible. The COVID hysteria and the mandates were the icing on the cake. Cameron Sorsby describes a plausible alternative to this soul-crushing machine.

In my review of the news today I notice some odd details left out of major headlines: like the latest BLM celebrity who (the headline doesn't mention) was shooting at a mother and her children, or a weird poll about confidence in Kamala Harris that leaves out the opinion of a rather important country. Fun!

We have long deplored how American history is taught in classrooms, at all levels. But most people have done more griping than doing. Connor Boyack just did something we've obviously needed for the past 50 years, but which nobody -- not even extremely well funded libertarian or conservative think tanks -- had bothered to do. It's great news.
