38:01: Weekly Listener Questions:A tent can’t be too big. Although I can understand that libertarianism has many definitions, there must be limits. If someone attempts to nail it, They always respond by saying there is no true Scotsman fallacy, or that libertarianism is not the goal. However, we must be realistic in the near term. However, all of this is a confusing way for me say the LP. RoundtableEmailers aren’t libertarians and they should cease using this word. DeSantinistas and Trumpers and pro-Putin trade cons and all right-wing reactionaries must be publicly disavowed.
