[PODCAST] #374: The Liberty of Creative Production (With MK Lords and Carlos Morales)

This is a repost of my recent appearance on the Libertarian Atheist Podcast. Here are their notes: As promoters of free thought we stand in a position which is in contradiction to the narrative that our society is built on. This is by definition inconvenient, for convenience is comes from conformity and conformity cannot lead to change. All great changes occur with little care for convenience, but even when we are standing in front of those espousing the evil we want to end, we must speak truth with clarity and not rage alone. Brett Veinotte from school sucks podcast joins us to talk about this subject and quite a bit more. Look Closer: libertarian-atheist.com - http://www.libertarian-atheist.com/
