Episode 277 – …But What About The Roads?

by | Aug 17, 2013 | Episodes, Podcasts | 1 comment

It is the last refuge of a statist who is losing an argument: “…but what about the roads?” This is supposed to be the strongest argument for why we need a centralized authority with a monopoly right to initiate violence, but in fact it is one of the strongest arguments for how anarchy can (and does) work. Join us today on The Corbett Report as we explore some of the surprising evidence showing how anarchy can bring peace to our roads…and our society.

  1. Wow James!

    This episode taught me so much about Agorism philosophy in general, not just the roads aspect. I think it is one of your best for all, especially newcomers to our Corbett Report community.
