Throwing Pies at Politicians, Sympathizing with People who “had it coming,” Deleting Friends from Facebook, & Why Free Markets Perform Better Than Governments

Today Isaac and I talk about conflicting moral intuitions on violence, how the market empowers small groups without disempowering anyone else, why good ideas don’t need subsidies, and how entertaining self-serious Facebookers can be.

Mentioned in the episode: Kevin Johnson, Boogie Cousins, Lady Gaga, How Anonymity Enhances Civility, Qdoba, Heidegger, and more I’m forgetting.

Recommendations: Five Characters in Search of Exit Twilight Zone episode, and Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance.
