182. What Divides Libertarians – My Conversation with Sean Boston

What divides libertarians is often just degrees of liberty that should be allowed and tactics of how to achieve those ends. Mainly, libertarians argue over how to vote, or even if they should. Also, they argue over the minutiae of many minor disagreements, instead of finding where they have common ground. Instead, they should focus on how to move forward on what they agree on. So, I’m revisiting my conversation with Sean Boston to discuss some of the problems I see. And, you can find out more about Sean here.

Andrew Scheer

The Serious Problems with Voting

With all the problems going on in the election, we could’ve seen these issues if we weren’t willfully blind. Instead, we chose to ignore the issues we had with our system. So, now we have to move forward and offer real solutions to the problems we say.

Problems with Charging Abusive Cops With Murder

I’m not one to defend cops who abuse their power or use excessive force. In fact, I’m quite the opposite. But that said, I do think it’s overzealous and unwise to overcharge these cops. Instead of trying to return cruelty with vengeance, I think we should seek justice as it is in the law that time. Then, we can try to fix what we find unjust about the laws as they’re written when we can.

How to Vote is a Huge Part of What Divides Libertarians

This is a common tactical question for libertarians of many stripes. And, I think it’s a good question to ask? What is best? Should we stay out of the voting system? Should we infiltrate the other parties? Or, should we create our own and go that way? We have to answer these questions, and, stick to that plan.

188. Finding Unity and Mending a Divided Nation Conversation of Our Generation

Our country is obviously divided, politically, culturally, and religiously. Despite living in the same country under the same laws, we have two separate nations in our country. In this episode, I'll discuss mending a divided nation and how we find unity amid all the chaos. How We're Divided We have divided ourselves in many ways across this country. We've separated ourselves into religious and secular, conservative and liberal, coastal and heartland, and in numerous other ways. With all of these differences, how can we even say we're one country? Discussions of secession come up on both sides of the political aisle, and many take it as an inevitability. What is dividing us? Mainstream Media, politicians, educational systems and numerous institutions seek to tear us apart instead of bringing us together. "Even if a unity of faith is not possible, a unity of love is." -Hans Urs von Balthasar Methods for Mending a Divided Nation I've spoken previously about what we need to come together, but I'm going to recap some of those thoughts. Basically, I think we need to first see each other as fellow human beings, fellow citizens. Rather than seeing political opponents as evil or vicious, we should see our friend or family member who holds those views in each person. We easily jump to conclusions about people instead of trying to understand them. So, if we are to have a healthy political and cultural life, we need to be able to discuss politics well. This means we have to know our own beliefs and biases, and discuss ideas with knowledge of our own potential pitfalls. We need to learn the lessons of the past and seek to mend and understand each other without wanting to dominate or control each other. — Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/conofourgen/support
