Ep 4 - The Good and Bad of "The Moon Is a Harsh Mistress"
This is a long episode, but it’s all jammed into one podcast.  I promise to cut down on the time in the future.  I discuss some problems and some positives in Robert Heinlein’s, The Moon Is a Harsh Mistress.  Many hail it as a libertarian masterpiece, but I think it has some issues along side its qualities.  I discuss the free market monopoly myth which is, I believe, an unsound criticism of the book and libertarian economic policies in general, so stick around for the whole show!  Be sure to read this article by Tom Woods and listen to this podcast of his for more on the topic.  Also, definitely check out this video from Thomas DiLorenzo which is excelent.  I also dive into how the book views women, which I have some issues with.  Let me know what you think!  Tell me where I’m wrong, and where you agree.  Next up is a fun episode going over the 1979 film Alien and then onto Fight Club by Chuck Palahniuk.  That one is going to get controversial so make sure you subscribe and follow me on twitter.
