It's Your Move! Strategies for Liberty With Spike Cohen

As the saying goes, there's more than one way to skin a cat.

How do we advance liberty? Should we engage the political process? Or should we spurn it and undermine the state through other means? And what's the best way to talk about liberty in a compelling way?

In this episode of the GodArchy podcast, I talk with Spike Cohen about strategies for liberty.

Spike was the 2020 Libertarian Party vice presidential candidate. Today, he is continuing to advance liberty through his organization You Are the Power.

During the interview, Spike and I also talk about how he became a libertarian and how his spiritual views inform his political philosophy.

Pontius Pilate the Politician: GodArchy Podcast Episode 2.6

You can't trust politicians!

Pontius Pilate is the archetypical politician, and the way Pilate handled Jesus's trial teaches a lot of lessons about political power, the political process, democracy -- and why we shouldn't trust any of it.

In this episode of the GodArchy podcast, I talk about some of these lessons.

Walking through the account of Jesus's trial before Pilate, I delve into a number of spiritual and political issues including the characteristics that make Pilate the quintessential politician, the implications of the crowd choosing Barabbas over Jesus, the danger of democracy, and why we shouldn't ever count on the political process to make the world a more peaceful, prosperous place.

The U.S. has been involved in a war in Yemen for years. It's time to end it now. In this episode, I talk to foreign policy expert Scott Horton. He explains how the U.S. got into the war, its convoluted politics, the human cost, and how we can help stop the carnage.

Living Free in an Unfree World With Tricia Stuart-Mann GodArchy 2.4

I talk a lot about the moral and ethical illegitimacy of government. But as it now stands, we're stuck with it. So, how do we live free in this unfree world? I talk about it with Tricia Stuart-Mann.

We discuss strategies to live more freely, including agorism.

Tricia is an anarchist, a Christian and a content creator. Among her many projects, she is the host of the GingerArchy podcast.

This Episode Is History! With CJ Killmer GodArchy 2.3

Does history repeat? Does it rhyme? Does human nature change?

These are some of the meaty topics I discuss with Dangerous History Podcast host CJ Killmer.

CJ and I talk history, his approach to teaching the subject, and how history led him to libertarianism. And of course, we also talk about how government sucks and creates death and chaos wherever it goes.

It's Magic! GodArchy 2.1

In this episode, I chat with Doc Dixon. Doc is a professional magician who fooled Penn and Teller. He's also a libertarian and a Christian. In this wide-ranging (and hilarious) episode, we talk about a bunch of topics including show business, how libertarian and Christian thought go together, the impact of the sickness that shall not be named, and the importance of having a life outside of politics.

I'm Back! GodArchy 2.0

After about a 9-month hiatus, the GodArchy podcast has returned!

For the GodArchy reboot, I talk a little about where I've been and where the show is going. I explain why I decided to bring the show back and what you can expect moving forward. There is also a little foray into why Christians should reject the state.

The Last Enemy

The last enemy to be destroyed will be death.

I recently watched my mother die. It was a profound experience. In this episode, I share a few thoughts about the experience and the flashes of light I saw during a dark time.

To Jab or Not to Jab?

To jab or not to jab? That is the question.

But a lot of people don’t feel like they have a whole lot of choice in the matter.

In this episode I talk about the coronavirus vaccine, and vaccine mandates and passports, from a libertarian Christian perspective.

Unmasking Rona

If all these mitigation efforts including lockdowns and mask mandates worked, we should see a significant difference between areas that implemented such measures and those that didn’t. We see no such difference.

In this episode of the GodArchy podcast, I talk with Ian Patterson about efforts to control coronavirus. We discuss how various policies have worked (or not worked.) We also discuss the collateral damage from lockdowns — both economic and spiritual — along with a Christian response to a pandemic.

Suck It Up Simone?

Is Simone Biles “soft?”

Did she embarrass America?

Is she indicative of deeper problems in American society?

A lot of people think so since the American gymnast dropped out of Olympic competition.

But perhaps there’s another way of looking at it. In this episode of the GodArtchy podcast, I tackle some of the issues surrounding the Biles saga, including our conception of “toughness,” mental health, and the ridiculous statism and collectivism on display.

Compulsory National Service

Compulsory national service is slavery.

Sound like hyperbole? I don’t think so. In this episode of the GodArchy podcast, I talk about compulsory national service, including military conscription, and explain how it destroys the fundamental concept of self-ownership. And if somebody else owns you — that’s slavery.

If at First You Don't Secede With Mark Kreslins

In my view, centralized power is the gravest threat to liberty.

The best way to confront that threat is the break up centralized power through secession.

Secession gets a bad rap in the United States because of its association with slavery and the Civil War, but secession itself has nothing to do with slavery and it doesn’t have to be violent. We can have what Mark Kreslins calls “peaceful political divorce.”

In this episode of the GodArchy podcast, Mark and I talk about secession and how it could be used as a tool to move us toward liberty.

Our conversation ends up going much deeper than that. We also discuss our personal political and spiritual journeys and talk about the feasibility of a voluntary society.

Mark has worn many hats. He’s worked as a staffer on Capitol Hill, served as a pastor and hosted a radio show.

Postmodernism and Critical Race Theory With Michael Rectenwald

Racism is everywhere!

At least that’s the narrative the "woke" social justice movement drives.

Political movements spring from ideas and the left-wing social justice movement is rooted in postmodernism and critical race theory. But what are these ideologies? Where do they come from? And how do these ideas play out in society?

In this episode of the GodArchy podcast, I talk with former NYU professor Michael Rectenwald about postmodernism, critical race theory and the movement driven by these ideas.

Hopping on My Soapbox

in this episode, I hop on my soapbox and pontificate about several issues including a misguided reason for supporting wars, the dark side of social media and the limitation of libertarian philosophy when it comes to promoting human flourishing.

Should Christians Do Politics? With Mark West

Should Christians get involved in politics?

Author and former pastor Mark West doesn’t think so. He recently wrote, “I would recommend that Christians avoid political means altogether. … I see political power and political force as forms of violence.”

In this episode of the GodArchy podcast, Mark and I talk it out. We also get into his new project Xvangelical.

Make Politics Matter Less With Jeff Deist

You know things are out of wack when soft drinks become politicized!

And that’s where we are today.

We’ve politicized virtually everything. But at the core, politics is violence, force and coercion. Surely, that’s not the best way we can come up with to interact with each other.

In this episode, Mises Institute president Jeff Deist and I talk about making politics matter less. We focus on other important institutions and other ways of interacting with each other.
