Interview: I View Them As Vermin

Interview: I View Them As Vermin

I was recently invited onto the “Liberty Hangout Podcast” to discuss the Syrian refugee crisis, and some critiques of my style in addressing issues. My hostility toward leftists and the Black Lives Matter demonstrators was of particular interest to the interviewers. To the leftists, I said “I view them as vermin” an infestation which ought to be eliminated from our presence. I’m thoroughly convinced that sane people cannot live in the same geographic area as any considerable concentration of leftists, much less

The Secular Reactionary Anarcho-Capitalist Revolutionary

The Secular Reactionary Anarcho-Capitalist Revolutionary
Libertarianism is often critiqued as having too limited a worldview, but libertarians are free to view the world anyway they see fit. Here is one such way.   An interesting, though not entirely unexpected phenomenon occurred as I sought out a thumbnail for this piece. I searched Google images for “ideology” and nearly everything that came up was decidedly negative. Hateful imagery that suggested anyone with a set of convictions was inherently evil. I shouldn’t be entirely surprised. Look at our

The Ideology of Chris Harper Mercer

The Ideology of Chris Harper Mercer
In the wake of a mass shooting that left ten people dead at Umpqua Community College in Oregon, media is pouring over the social media presence of 26 year old Chris Harper Mercer trying to understand what drove him to commit the crime. Unsurprisingly, these outlets tend to reach their conclusions based on whatever biases they held prior to the shooting. https://christophercantwell.com/wp-content/uploads/spoken/cantwell/TheIdeologyOfChrisHarperMercer.mp3Podcast: Play in new window | Download

Libertarianism is not a Synonym for Inclusivity

Libertarianism is not a Synonym for Inclusivity
Being a controversial figure has its ups and downs. One of the downsides is, I get excluded from a lot of things. I’ve been expelled from organizations, lost speaking engagements, kicked off radio shows, and blogs. That’s just the stuff I know about, and in all reality I’ve certainly been excluded from a great many things which I have yet to find out about. From time to time I’ll just show up at a thing, and be told that I’m not

5 Habits of Highly Effective Radicals

5 Habits of Highly Effective Radicals
What does it mean to be an effective advocate of liberty? It means to love what you do and adopt sustainable patterns of thinking and living that contribute to making the world a freer place. Reality is key. Most of today’s attacks on freedom lovers include a dismissal that reality even exists. There are a plethora of senseless and meaningless writings, videos, and podcasts being proliferated at an alarming pace which from all outward appearances seem geared quite intentionally toward deterring

No Such Thing as Neutral

No Such Thing as Neutral
The FCC claims it’s going to keep the net “neutral”. News outlets claim to be “impartial”. Such buzzwords immediately tell you that you’re being scammed. Well, it’s official. The FCC is taking over the Internet. Not only that, but millions of idiots begged them to do it, because they think the FCC is somehow going to keep the net “neutral”. This isn’t the only time we hear that word thrown around. Wikipedia comes to mind. Their obvious pro-government leanings make

Are People Stupid, Evil, or Both?

Are People Stupid, Evil, or Both?

A Free Talk Live caller figured we needed a lot of government programs because people are stupid and evil. That caller has since changed his mind, both about government, and about people in general. It did however bring up the subject, are people stupid, evil, or both? In the video below, we discuss the subject on Free Talk Live, but I want to riff on the subject a bit here. I don’t think people are inherently evil. I don’t subscribe

Bleeding Heart Minarchist Eugenics

Want to reduce the size and scope of government? Just create a new bureaucracy that will snatch babies from the arms of unlicensed mothers. This is not a parody. This is actually being proposed by Andrew Cohen at BleedingHeartLibertarians.com. The article reads as though Stefan Molyneux had co authored it with Hillary Clinton. Cohen rightly points out that bad parenting is a rather serious problem. That bad parents can, and do, violate the rights of children, and that those children grow

Politically Correct Libertarianism Must Die

The Libertarian Brutalism Facebook group was deleted today, because politically correct libertarians can’t mind their own business. Well, I’ve got a few things to say to these people. Politically correct libertarians tell us they are just exercising their own freedom of speech and association when they expel brutalists from organizations and slander us publicly. For the most part, we’ve been pretty happy to let them run with that narrative, even though we know it to be false. After all, our
