Episode 26 – Aaron Powell
On episode 26 of The Peace Radicals Marc J. Victor and Andy Marcantel converse with special guest, Aaron Powell. Aaron is the director and editor of Libertarianism.org, a project of the Cato Institute. He is also the cohost of Free Thoughts, a weekly podcast on libertarianism and the ideas that influence it. Powell’s research focuses on political philosophy and the moral case for liberty. Aaron starts off the conversation by explaining what he thinks the purpose of politics is and how his work with the Cato Institute aligns with the 3L Movement. He shares his opinion on Marc’s book so far; which gets Marc, Andy, and Aaron discussing reasonable disagreements and implied contracts. Marc explains why we don’t have to figure out every single issue immediately and what should happen when someone violates the 3L Principle. They end the conversation by discussing different interpretations of people in the freedom crowd.
