Walter Block on <em>The Ethics of Liberty</em>

The Human Action Podcast

Murray Rothbard's The Ethics of Liberty is a sweeping treatise which creates nothing short of a normative political philosophy of liberty. Contra Hume, Rothbard attempts to derive an "ought" from an "is," using natural law precepts and rigorous logic. Professor Walter Block joins the show to discuss the first section of the book, and gives us his unstinting (and always deontological!) take on Rothbard's vitally important treatment of natural law philosophy as the foundation for a free society. There are also lots of great Blockean anecdotes you'll want to hear!The Audiobook version of The Ethics of Liberty is available at Mises.org/EthicsAudioRead Hans-Hermann Hoppe's introduction to the 1998 edition work at Mises.org/EthicsHoppeFind David Hume's A Treatise on Nature at Mises.org/Hume

017 Walter Block - Defending the Undefendable

Theocracy

My guest is Dr. Walter Block, a professor of economics at Loyola University in New Orleans. He went to school with Bernie Sanders, and he's the author of several libertarian philosophy and economics books, most notably a set called "Defending the Undefendable" where he lays out acts which may be socially unacceptable or morally corrupt but should not be punishable in court. Some things we touch on are of a disturbing nature: nothing graphic, but I do want to mention that some vocabulary words do come up which may prompt hard questions from children or google searches they may not be ready for.
