ANYTHING PEACEFUL

A Sit-Down with Nick Gillespie of Reason TV

FEBRUARY 25, 2013 by THE FREEMAN



Freeman editor Max Borders got to sit down with Reason's Nick Gillespie in this interview for Reason TV.

Nick and Max talk crony capitalism, wealth inequality, and the future of The Freeman.

"We have a huge problem in this country with the difference between makers and takers," says Borders, "between crony capitalists and actual value creators. . . . You've got people who have figured out how to game the system. They go down to the brothels of K Street and figure out how to change the rules to benefit them[selves], and we get massive transfers of wealth from middle class and poor people to rich people."

CURRENT ISSUE

April 2014

Around the world, people are struggling to throw off authoritarianism, with deeply mixed results. From Egypt to Venezuela, determined people build networks to overthrow their regimes, but as yet we have not learned to live without Leviathan. In this issue, Michael Malice and Gary Dudney discuss their glimpses inside totalitarian regimes, while Sarah Skwire and Michael Nolan look at how totalitarian regimes grind down the individual--and how individuals fight back. Plus, Jeffrey Tucker identifies a strain in libertarianism that, left unchecked, could reduce even our vibrant movement to something that is analogous to the grim aesthetic of architectural brutalism. The struggle for our lives and freedom is a struggle for beauty; it begins inside each of us.
