It made national news days ago when a federal judge who disagrees with the latest leftist obsessions was unable to deliver his prepared remarks because of heckling by students who cannot allow the expression of opposing ideas. But the icing on the cake came when a dean stood up and -- instead of scolding the little savages -- scolded the judge himself. Tim Rosenberger, Jr., heads the Federalist Society chapter at Stanford and joins us to discuss what happened, what it means for the future, and what we must do.

Jeff Leskovar wanted to figure out why so many people adopt the whole program of the elites, even though there's no particular reason that someone who favors arming Ukraine should also favor, say, a higher minimum wage. All these positions are nevertheless held as a bundle. Those holding them tend not to want to debate, and seem relatively untroubled by the suppression of their opponents' voices. Jeff thinks he's discovered the reason behind all this, and he shares it with us today.

Even discussing the topic and allowing the man to speak without imposing any value judgments on the viewer, as indeed this film does not, is enough to get Jason and the film banned -- the Twitter account he mentions in the episode has already been suspended as I type these notes.

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. Guests on this episode: Kevin Dolan, David Moore, Barbara Williams, and Jeremy Evans.

Since we see current events distorted in the media every day, why wouldn't we think events from the past were equally distorted? Without historical revisionism, today's propaganda becomes tomorrow's history. Two other scholars (Ryan McMaken and Tom DiLorenzo) and I make the case for revisionism in today's episode.

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.
