"Reason and Liberty" - An Interview with the Author

The second episode of the Lions of Liberty Podcast is up!

In this edition, I speak with Shayne Wissler, the author of “Reason and Liberty” and “For Individual Rights” . We discuss why using reason to achieve a consistent philosophy is important to the advancement of the ideas of liberty.

I feel the ideas discussed in this podcast are very important. It is essential to the advancement of any serious movement that it be grounded in a consistent philosophy.

We must not just list a series of prescriptions to solve the world’s ills. We must always ask “why?”, and be able to provide that answer to others.
