First hour: Walter Block, a free market economist and anarcho-capitalist associated with the Austrian School of economics, has replaced Murray Rothbard as “Mr. Libertarian,” according to Lew Rockwell. As today’s leading exponent of hardcore libertarian economics, Block wants to pretty much privatize everything, including roads and highways, and even supports contractual “voluntary slavery.” Though I ran for Congress as a Libertarian, I’m not sure I’d go that far. But I’m willing to listen.
Second hour: Joshua Blakeney, Globalization Studies, University of Lethbridge, is becoming a leading figure in the 9/11 truth movement. He and Jim Fetzer are the organizers of the upcoming Vancouver 9/11 Hearings. A correspondent for Press TV whose intellectual background is more or less Marxist, Joshua presumably will offer a very different perspective from Walter Block’s.
