The Tyranny of Liberalism

An interesting debate between Rothbardian anarcho-capitalist Tom Woods and conservative Catholic traditionalist James Kalb.

Listen here.

Liberalism portrays itself as the ideology of liberty and liberation, as neutral between competing views of the good, and as the position all right-thinking people should adopt. None of this is true, but it is all brutally enforced. Jim Kalb and I discuss the true nature of liberalism in today’s episode.
