Were Anti-War Libertarians Gullible for Believing Trump Would Take on the War Party?
Matt Welch talks with MilLiberty about foreign policy, post-communist Europe, collectivist antipathies, and the apocalyptic style within libertarianism
Yesterday I had the pleasure of conversing with Caleb Franz, podcast director for OUTSET magazine, who describes himself as "your neighborhood libertarian" and a media entrepreneur busy "finding new and unique ways to convey the message of liberty." One of those ways is via MilLiberty with Caleb Franz, a weekly podcast interviewing such characters as Austin Petersen, Isaac Morehouse, and, this week, me.
The conversation ranged from my formative years in post-commie Central Europe under the influence of Václav Havel, Cory Booker's doomed weed bill, libertarian/conservative overlap with and apologia for the alt-right, the now-curdled enthusiasm for Trump's foreign policy among anti-war libertarians, the ominous rise of collectivist antipathy in American politics, among other non-controversial topics.
