As you probably already know, Ross Ulbricht was found guilty last week on all seven charges that he was facing. Today, we’ll share some thoughts on the trial. Did Ulbricht even have a chance of escaping any charges?

We’ll also spend some time reading the original warrant for his arrest and considering some tough moral questions. Ulbricht was allegedly willing to have a hacker killed in order to protect the Silk Road’s vendors and customers. Christopher Cantwell, a popular anarchist blogger, argues that actions like that are completely justified, and we’ll try to decide whether or not we agree.

Your hosts this week are Tim Baker, Daniel Brown, and John Stuart. Enjoy!

  • I’m very excited to see this group!  I think that many Christians are wrestling with the idea of their faith and how it relates to their political outlook–having a ready defense of liberty from a Christian outlook is very important to message these ideas to interested Christians. I don’t know how many of you were able to attend ISFLC, so some of you may have already seen this, but I was able to participate as a panelist with five other young Christian libertarians on the issue of how we, as Christians, approach libertarianism.  We were able to upload the panel to YouTube which you can watch here if you didn’t get to see it already/weren’t at ISFLC. As one of the panelists, I would be happy to hear your feedback on the arguments presented in the panel and/or any other general ideas about how to understand libertarianism from a Christian framework.  What are the best ways to message libertarianism to Christians and Christianity to libertarians?
