Description

One of the things I wanted to start doing into next year was interviewing potential senators, and congressmen who I thought would do a better job promoting liberty than the man or woman currently holding office.

As some of you know, I’m back out in California this week finishing the shoot for the History channel, and I thought I’d do an interview series with some people who are doing some interesting stuff in the liberty space.

I’m kicking off this series with Shane Hazel, an incredible man who’s decided to take on the establishment and run against the sitting Republican in Georgia’s 7th District.

Running against a Republican AS a Republican is an almost impossible task, but Shane’s message of liberty and free markets are winning the day.

Give the show a listen and then head over to http://www.shanehazel.com and throw your support behind his efforts.

  • Watched Requiem For The American Dream last night. It was pretty good, but got some things definitely wrong. It was able to identify some of the problems with today’s economic and political system, but didn’t quite get many of their causes completely correct. It noted that the economy we have now isn’t truly capitalism (which it’s not), and that in democratic societies, large business will favor regulations that grow government and reduce competition (which is true). The problem is it claims that there are people intentionally doing this for the malicious purpose of exploiting the working class (which I don’t think is really the reason. It just makes good business sense if you want to keep growing your company and paying your workers). It also seemed to imply that Americans don’t have the right of free association, but last I checked that was guaranteed under the First Amendment, as upheld in several supreme court cases. Finally, it heavily implies that the solution to this problem is implement a democratic political system, with a collectivist economy, but doesn’t realize this is calling the feared outcome the solution. He references Socrates thoughts on society, which notes that in a democracy, eventually the poor will vote to redistribute wealth from the rich, and then suggests that the best solution to this problem is … redistribute wealth from the rich to the poor up front? I thought that’s what you were worried about? Anybody else watched this and have some thoughts?

  • I wanted to bring to this community’s attention the recent documentary “Can We Take a Joke?”, directed by Ted Balaker, one of the founders of Reason TV.  Through the lens of stand-up comedy, it explores how outrage culture and political correctness are eroding the space for free and outrageous expression. I was honored to compose the score for this documentary along with my writing partner Ryan Rapsys.  (please check out our new website www.MusicForLiberty.com) The film premiered at Doc NYC in November and I’m sure it will be available for viewing in the near future. I’ll make sure to post when it becomes available for public consumption.

  • Senators should be elected by the legislatures of the states they represent.  The 17th amendment should be repealed.
