Given the talk of Molyneux and anarchist argument in recent threads (e.g. here and here), I figured people might be interested in this:
LibertyChat.com will be hosting a special debate between Stefan Molyneux & Dave Nalle.
Is “government” coercion or cooperation? Stefan & Dave sit down to discuss this and the many issues revolving around Government vs Anarchism.
The audience will be allowed to participate by typing questions in the chat room below the video feeds. It’s free to participate. All you’ll need to do is register at LibertyChat.com and click on the “chat” option at the top of the page to join in.
Debate is April 25th at 9:PM EST
That looks pretty awesome.
There is potential here....
Given the topic, it's funny that the Republican Liberty Caucus seems to mirror the message of Campaign for Liberty, but on a watered down and probably more corrupt level.
C4L's "Mission": "Our mission is to promote and defend the great American principles of individual liberty, constitutional government, sound money, free markets, and a noninterventionist foreign policy, by means of educational and political activity."
What RLC advocates, bolding theirs: "At the Republican Liberty Caucus we believe that less government means more liberty. We advocate the principles of individual rights, limited government, and free enterprise. We work in the Republican Party because we believe it is the best vehicle for bringing about the political changes we want."
In the sense that this may be somewhat of the Molyneux VS RP imagined in the OP's link where I brought up Molyneux, this will be interesting indeed. We should go by the same names if we join the chat there.
What a shame that it is at 9pm. Europeans miss out as it will be 3am. All future debates should be done at 3pm instead to accommodate the Europeans :D
There are still people in North America who have day jobs...
This debate will take place tomorrow night.
In about 10 minutes, Tom Woods is taking questions live on the air...
Hope to see you guys there in awhile.
OK so the debate starts in 10 minutes.
There are 40 people online and the chat is completely broken.
I'm used to shows with like 10k+ viewers separated into a few chats......this will be interesting indeed.........
Be there or be square.
Dang, I can't register! The website never sends an email with the password! Gaaaah! Anyone here have an extra username?
Solved: Check your spam folder!
Check your junk mail, taht's where mine went. Or else use yopmail.com for a disposable email. If you can't figure something out I'll make one for you.
Unfortunately, it's past nine and now not only is the chat broken, but there's no live feed. :(
Molyneux is there and being a dork as usual. They're waiting on the other bald guy.
If anyone wants to chat here on the forum, try clicking on the "live chat" button on the menu bar and use the channel #debate. I'm curious to see if this works
Okay folks, if you're late, it's okay...the debate JUST started (technical issues)
Any recordings available of this yet? I am sure Molyneux will post on his youtube chan eventually.
If anyone can find a recording I'd be interested as well.
Hey, anyone who was there for this debate...is this the event were someone mentioned something about the cost of defense being much lower than empire and nation building...?
I think this was it, so it would have been Molyneux, but the specific that I remember had to do with 30 million dollar planes or helicopters being taken out by $25k stinger missiles; evidence that defense doesn't have to entail the kind of military expenditure that the US and other large countries engage in.
I'm almost positive this was it. Can someone confirm?
I tuned out most of what they said :P
Well it's up now, so you can pay attention this time...
Molyneux had another debate on LibertyChat. Forgot to mention it. Sorry. Easier to get through it this way anyway.
