The Power of Principle
Not all heroes wear capes. This week’s guest, author of The Voluntaryist Comic Series (www.volcomic.com) demonstrates just how easily the thin razor of principle slices through political bullshit like a hot knife through…. well, bullshit. From the ridiculous “libertarian fascism” sub-movement to the political hysteria du jour, learn how principle can be your guiding light (and you don’t have to sacrifice pragmatism while you’re at it).

Anarcho-Fascism? Tackling Tactics with Love, Life, and Anarchy
The liberty movement has no doubt become divided within the last 1 to 2 years. While some choose to stand by the timeless non-aggression principle, many prominent figures have been calling for a departure from principle in order to avert supposed short-term disasters. Some even openly advocate for Fascism. How can this be? Join Flagship Freedom with guest Adrian from Love, Life, and Anarchy to discuss this controversial (and perhaps contradictory) tactic, as well as related ideologies like collectivism, racism, Nazism, and more.

Not all self-proclaimed anarchists are capitalists. In fact, anarcho-communists reject capitalism vehemently. Clearly, “AnCaps” and “AnComs” can’t both be right. Is property theft? Is capitalism voluntary? Is profit exploitative? Dive into the rabbit hole of philosophy with Danny boy and repeat guest “The Pholosopher” for an examination of this alternative anarchic concept.

FF027: Civil Rights and the Pro-Life Movement
Think the anti-abortion movement was always the religious right’s reaction to feminism, civil rights, and sexual liberation? Think again. History is written by the winners and on 1973, pro-abortion advocates won a landmark case that earned them the presumption to rewrite history in a way more suitable to their interests. But what if I told you that before Roe v. Wade, the anti-abortion movement was once built around a diverse coalition of New Deal Democrats, Catholic Liberals, and African Americans? In the first of a multi-part examination of the practice of abortion through the lens of libertarianism, Michael talks with Professor Daniel K. Williams of the University of West Georgia about the untold history of what eventually became the pro-life movement. * Defenders of the Unborn * NYT Review of Defenders * Daniel K. Williams

FF025: Real Heroes of Venezuela
“I usually tell my American friends that they take their liberty for granted because when we have liberty, we have everything, and we just don’t care. And it’s just about time, you know? It starts very slow, like a cancer. And when you know you have it, it’s too late. I’m talking about socialism.” Danny and Michael meet a new hero of the liberty movement when they invite Leonardo Brito, the managing director of the Bastiat Society of Caracas, Venezuela, onto the Flagship to talk about the hidden horrors of modern day socialism. Leonardo gives us his harrowing account of what the Venezuelan people currently endure at the hands of an ideological regime that murders its people daily to keep its bread lines short. * Bastiat Society of Venezuela * Bastiat Venezuela Twitter * Bastiat Venezuela Donation Page * Bastiat Society * Real Heroes by Lawrence Reed * NY Times Venezuelan Violence Article * Macroeconomics of South American Populism * Chavez’ war on the press * Free Market Venezuelan news
