Lysander Spooner on Jury Nullification Ep. 56

It’s been too long since I’ve done a solo episode. For this one, I hop on the mic for the first installment in a new series focusing on trial by jury. Using Lysander Spooner’s “Trial by Jury” as a framework, this series will explore the simple fact that juries have the ancient right to judge both the facts and the justice of the laws. This first episode introduces the fundamental importance of that fact.

Nikolas Cruz and the Parkland Florida Shooting – ABS036

Hey guys, in this episode Scott breaks down the Parkland Florida shooting. At this point, I’m sure everyone knows that on February 14th, 2018, 19-year-old Nikolas Cruz shot and killed 17 people, mostly teenagers, at Marjory Stoneman High School. Scott offers his analysis by his lonesome due to the rest of the boys being stuck at work.    Don’t forget to send your questions to feedback@ancapbarbershop.com for the February Live Stream which will be available to patrons at the Gentleman’s cut level and up ($5 per podcast episode). You can find out more about our Patreon campaign at patreon.com/ancapbarbershop.    Scott starts by recounting the events of the day as reported by CNN. You can read the article here.    Every time there is a similar shooting people ask the same questions. “Why did this happen?” as well as “How can we prevent this from happening again?” The naive answer to either question is “Because of guns.” and “By banning or further regulating guns.” respectively. One might wonder why our grandparents were presumably spared the rash of mass shootings we see today. They certainly had guns, including semi-automatic rifles, and they had far more lax firearms regulations. Is it because of psychotropic medication? Is it because of gun free zones? Is it because of an inherent tendency in our culture? Is it because the security measures we have in place are monopolized, or all of the above? To that end, why would we ever allow our children to be gathered together without some form of effective security? Why would we create laws prohibiting the protection of our children?    In this instance one thing is overwhelmingly clear, government has failed us and our loved ones at every level. From the FBI to the Sheriff’s office, to the schools. They have failed us miserably, they, have the blood of children on their hands, and we are forced to pay their salaries and fund their pet projects at the threat of violence. Fuck them… Fuck them in the neck…   The remaining articles Scott references throughout this podcast can be found below:   http://www.politifact.com/wisconsin/statements/2018/feb/15/jeff-greenfield/mostly-false-18-us-school-shootings-so-far-2018-an/   https://www.nytimes.com/2018/02/16/us/fbi-nikolas-cruz-shooting.html   https://www.cnn.com/2018/02/16/politics/parkland-shooting-fbi-tipster/index.html   http://thefreethoughtproject.com/nikolas-cruz-said-wanted-professional-school-shooter-fbi-knew-nothing/   Hopefully, there is some better news next time we are in the Ancap Barber Shop.

Ep. 30 – More Libertarian Infighting | McAdams vs. Molyneux

In an ASTOUNDING turn of events…

 

…libertarians are hurling insults at one another.

 

Yes it’s true, Daniel McAdams of the Ron Paul Institute has been attacking Stefan Molyneux and later Michael Malice over criticism of North Korea.  Jeff and Tony discuss why this is unbelievably annoying and unproductive. 

Watch Malice and Molyneux discuss the issue: https://youtu.be/Srg1O7uzldY

FPF #158 – When Syrian Lives Matter

On FPF #158, I discuss the mainstream media’s attention turning back to Syria. The Assad bombing of East Gouta has allowed the mainstream media to push the “Assad must go” line. The mainstream media have used Iran’s and Russia’s role in Syria to claim those states are looking to expand their power. The media ignores cases when Syrian civilians are killed by groups other than Assad, Russia, ISIS, or Iran. I also update Nigeria, the Olympics, Iraq, the Iran Nuclear Agreement, and Operation Olive Branch

Episode 64 – I Saw the Devil (52:47)

In what may become a routine feature, we do a foreign film from South Korea that has a bit of a cult following in the US, I Saw the Devil. This one is timely as the Olympics are currently taking place there and has plenty on offer.

It’s a story of revenge where the aggrieved party takes justice into their own hands, and fights fire with fire, becoming the monster he is hunting.

Kyung-chul (Choi Min-sik) is a dangerous psychopath who kills for pleasure. He has committed infernal serial murders in diabolic ways that one cannot even imagine and his victims range from young women to even children. The police have chased him for a long time, but were unable to catch him. One day, Joo-yeon, daughter of a retired police chief becomes his prey and is found dead in a horrific state. Her fiance Soo-hyun (Lee Byung-hun), a top secret agent, decides to track down the murderer himself. He promises himself that he will do everything in his power to take bloody vengeance against the killer, even if it means that he must become a monster himself to get this monstrous and inhumane killer.

We expect to have Patrick MacFarlane of Liberty Weekly on to discuss this film and any other rabbit-trails we go down during the inaugural episode of our new hangout-style/conversation show to be called “Boys Night Out” where all guests and listeners must identify as a man for the duration of the show.

Non-State Solutions to Domestic Violence Ep. 55 Feat. Trey Weaver

After a week of being sick and having 2 episodes ruined due to technical difficulties, my good friend Trey Weaver of the Subversion Webcast jumps on to interview me about my law school paper: “Vacating the State: Free Market Alternatives to Domestic Violence Policy.”

I realized only after recording this episode that my audio went through my webcam mic and not my real microphone. So that’s three episodes this week affected by technical difficulties. At least this one didn’t ruin the episode. Apologies!

Ep. 55: Can We Crowd-Fund the Government?

Everyday, thousands of worthy causes are funded voluntarily through a large number of small contributions — many times by people completely unknown to the beneficiaries.  In the age of instant information and effortless allocation of funds, can that very same tactic be utilized to fund services typically provided by the government?  Roads?  Emergency Services?  National … read more

FPF #155 – Rand Paul is Right on War

On FPF #155, I breakdown Senator Rand Paul’s interview on Fox News. Senator Paul takes advantage of the government budget process to call out American’s 7 wars, the huge Defense budget, and the futility of American Interventionism. I discuss Mike Pence’s statement on North Korea. I also update the Afghanistan War, the Riyadh Ritz-Carlton, and the Syrian Civil War
