Ep 267 | Libertarianism Is About Respect | Guest: Spike Cohen

Kibbe on Liberty - A podcast by Blaze Podcast Network - Wednesdays

Libertarians have always struggled to communicate their ideas in a way that is appealing to the average person, mainly because they won’t stop quoting dead economists, to the point where it becomes a drinking game. Spike Cohen, former Libertarian Party candidate for vice president and founder of You Are the Power, wants to change that. In this conversation with Matt Kibbe, he explains that the basic principles of libertarianism can be boiled down to respect for one’s fellow human beings and that this is an idea that just about everyone can understand and appreciate. Instead of referencing obscure economic concepts and spreadsheets full of data, we can tell a story about values that will connect with audiences, not just on an intellectual level but an emotional one as well.
