Bob Zadek
Bob talks about the issues that affect our lives on a daily basis from a purely libertarian standpoint. He believes in small government, fewer taxes, and greater personal freedom.<br /><br />America has lost its way, but it cannot and does not need to be reinvented. Our founders were correct about their approach to government, as were John Locke, Adam Smith and the other great political philosophers who influenced them. The country’s first principles are economic and social freedom, republicanism, the rule of law, and liberty. Bob believes we must take the best of our founding principles and work from them because a country without principles is just a landmass.
Episode details

Though Capitalism has elevated the standard of living of most humans on earth, it is misunderstood and under attack. It is perverted by the unholy alliance of big business and big government (think “crony capitalism”), thwarted by statists whose hubris allows them to believe that they know what’s best for each and every citizen, and vilified by those whose survival requires appropriation of someone else’s person and property. In this episode, Bob is joined by author and lecturer Dr. Tom G. Palmer of the Atlas Network and the Cato Institute to discuss the morality and necessity of capitalism. Capitalism cannot be adequately defended if it is not understood, and understand it you shall after hearing this podcast.
