In this episode I respond to a guest on the Ezra Klein Show. The guest, a philosopher, was arguing that businesses and families are also central planning and lead to power balances that need egalitarian considerations.


While this criticism of anti-government thought may seem persuasive on the surface it completely misunderstands the fundamental social criticism that libertarianism brings to the table. Libertarianism isn’t anti governance or authority but anti-violence. It’s this crucial point that egalitarians often misunderstand about libertarians and I explain in this podcast episode.
