We discuss the narrative that Idiocracy is currently viewed as a prescient documentary that foretold today’s events regarding Trump being elected President. We argue that this may be true, but not in the way that they think. It is the echo-chamber of social media that allowed people to be blindsided to the Trump-phenomenon and the current attack on “fake news” is only going to double-down on the problem and compound it. This is a pretty fun one that feels like we really hit our stride.
Also, apparently I was not quite right about the water being the only thing that expands. A few more things do…but it’s RARE PEOPLE!
Gallium is a liquid at 85.6 degrees Fahrenheit and expands as it freezes, according to Chemicool. The four other elements that expand when they freeze are silicon, bismuth, antimony and germanium. However, gallium is the only element out of those five that has a melting point near room temperature.

Presented by Read Rothbard:
Read Rothbard is comprised of a small group of voluntaryists who are fans of Murray N. Rothbard. We curate content on the www.ReadRothbard.com site including books, lectures, articles, speeches, and we make a weekly podcast based on his free-market approach to economics. Our focus is on education and how advancement in technology improves the living standards of the average person.
The Read Rothbard Podcast is all about Maximum Freedom. We look at movies and current events from a Rothbardian Anarchist perspective. If it’s voluntary, we’re cool with it. If it’s not, then it violated the Non-Aggression Principle and Property Rights – the core tenants of Libertarian Theory – and hence – human freedom.
