If we are for peace, then we have to put away the guns. If we keep the guns as part of our activism, then stop sounding like hypocrites by talking about peace.
Talking about the News (TAOL 0014)
In episode 14 of The Art of Liberty Podcast, John and I talk about Adam Kokesh’s latest arrest, the latest on Edward Snowden and some other topics that came up in the news this last week. Good stuff!
You may be the kind of republican or democrat who is happy about NSA domestic spying, or perhaps you just don’t know why you should care. You may think that this enables greater security for you and your family. In the short-term, there is a very small chance of this being true. But the bigger picture for you who are not anarchists is that NSA spying enables the intelligence community to subvert democratic government (if you believe in that). Just like J. Edgar Hoover manipulated lawmakers and harassed heroes like Martin Luther King, Jr., so might the J. Edgar Hoovers of today be doing the same thing. That’s not just my opinion. That’s what former top members of the intelligence community have said. Watch this short video to see what I’m talking about.
In episode 10, special guest Virgil Freeman join John and I to discuss practical steps you can take right now to secure your digital privacy.

We talk about all the details around the story including the whistleblower, Edward Snowden. We also talk briefly about how to defend yourself from it. We need your questions on this topic for our next episode.
