On this week's Ep, I've got a very special Guest.

Scott Horton, one of the world's most vocal and hard working Libertarians and anti-war authors.

He joined me to speak about why and how foreign policy is the most important aspect of a presidency or nation state’s impact.

How a monopoly on violence gives the state the power of an empire.

  • Why wars so enticing for a state.
  • Is modern warfare different to medieval & ancient warfare? Why?
  • How did we get here? What went wrong along the way?
  • The constant state of emergency
  • Does he think what’s happened in the last 14mths (globalist agenda) is in some ways retribution for America’s meddling in everyone’s shit?
  • If we were more localised, would these kinds of wars or conflicts be as much of a reality?
  • When is War necessary?

One of the resources that Scott Mentioned was a series of works by Garet Garrett:

- The revolution that was

- Ex America

- Rise of Empire
