1. JRR Tolkien and the Free Market - On Common Ground


    from Bill Walton Added 35 1 0

    Dr. Jay Richards joins host Bill Walton "On Common Ground" to explore Tolkien's beloved writings and their political undercurrents. While most readers and students of Tolkien recognize his Christian analogies, many misinterpret or don't even register, the other, more political themes running through his series -- limited government, free markets, free trade, personal freedom and accountability. Dr. Richards outlines these connections in his new book, "The Hobbit Party", co-authored by Dr. Jonathan Witt and on bookstands now.

      • Anti-Libertarians Can't Think - CultOfDusty


        from BlameThe1st Added 18 0 0

        "So in my opinion, libertarianism is really idiotic. It's based on a lot of really foolish beliefs." - Dusty Smith My latest target is Dusty Smith, otherwise known as the CultOfDusty, who is the living epitome of the Dunning-Kruger Effect. He considers himself to be smarter than he actual is, and considers libertarians to be idiotic because he wrongfully assumes that they think the free market is the solution to everything, when statists like himself think the state is the ultimate answer. This is my longest video to date, and took a lot of swearing and drinking to complete. Dusty is just that stupid! Special thanks to Shane Killian and the others at the Bogosity Forum for helping me with the video.

        • Our American Republic Ep. 13: Constitutional Law


          from Mal Partisan Added 24 0 0

          This video of Our American Republic discusses the original intent of Constitutional Law to limit the powers of the Federal Government. Though we have had government classes and a host of news stories which discuss Constitutional Law, how was it perceived by the founders? From their perspective we will talk about the importance of limiting the powers of the Federal Government to protect our American way of life. We look at what James Madison, one of the key contributors to the authoring of the Constitution, thought regarding the Constitutional limitations of the Federal government. Finally, we will look at ways that you and I can address shortfalls of our foundational legal document: The Constitution. Soucres: (Annotations visible on desktops with Adobe Flash) 1.
