For Monday’s episode of Philosophy in Action Radio, I posted a podcast on “How to Be Principled about Election Politics.” That podcast is now available for streaming or downloading.

Podcast: 14 September 2015

As the 2012 election approached, many politically-active people were busy stumping for their preferred party and its candidates. Alas, too many became wrapped up in “party politics,” attacking the opposition as entirely without merit and ignoring the defects on their own side. They lost sight of what really matters – the principle of individual rights. The result was – and is – ever-worse violations of our rights by politicians of all stripes. It’s time for advocates of liberty to reverse that trend. This talk was given to Liberty on the Rocks Flatirons on 13 August 2012.

Remember the Tip Jar!

The mission of Philosophy in Action is to spread rational principles for real life… far and wide. That’s why the vast majority of my work is available to anyone, free of charge. I love doing the radio show, but each episode requires an investment of time, effort, and money to produce. So if you enjoy and value that work of mine, please contribute to the tip jar. I suggest $5 per episode or $20 per month, but any amount is appreciated. In return, contributors can request that I answer questions from the queue pronto, and regular contributors enjoy free access to premium content and other goodies.

    Lets ignore all the boring stuff about welfare and immigration and economic policy; and concentrate on Gramsci, the neoliberal paradigm, and refuting nihilism. And remember – the ‘Blairite Undead’ are our real enemy, and we must not allow ourselves to be distracted from the fight by the electorate.
