Ep. 0125: Listener Emails #6

LOOOOOOOOOONG overdue for one of these, so here it is, and extra-plus-sized to compensate for lost time.

Join CJ as he shares & responds to messages from listeners on:

  • More thoughts on the historical evolution of Islam
  • Whether there’s any instance in which CJ might consider voting
  • The electoral college
  • The Republic of Cospaia
  • Historical fiction novels
  • Safe haven countries in the event of World War 3?
  • Whether or not the mainstream may be right about things like economics and politics, and CJ & much of the audience of this podcast are crazy
  • Chris Kyle
  • Why are there so many different views on history?
  • Historical examples of anarchism (or something close to it) in practice

Thanks to Max, Penny, Ken, Jan, Kent, Jacob, Darko, Rainer, Rick, & Ary for their questions!

Join CJ as he discusses:

  • A few words about his recent trip to Ireland
  • Thoughts on Islam
  • SJW’s vs. the Alt. Right
  • Parallels between the present-day US and Weimar Republic Germany
  • The tendency of elites to want to deprive the lower orders of comfort and luxury items, even in cases where doing so will bring them (the elites) no real material gain
  • Potential windows of opportunity for anti-interventionists to have changed Team America’s foreign policy path in the early- and mid-twentieth century
  • The Austrian school of economics & money

Thanks to listeners Skip, Dicon, Jeff, Brett, and Justin for the questions!

Ep. 0073: Listener Emails #2

(First off:  Apologies in advance for the audio quality drop-off after about the first half-hour — had an equipment SNAFU but had to just go on with backup gear in order to get the episode recorded during the narrow window of time I had this week to do it!  I’ve got it solved for next episode, though.)

Once again we dip into the listener mailbag to discuss some thought-provoking email questions from DHP listeners.

Join Prof CJ as he discusses:

  • Advice to a high school senior about whether or not to go to college
  • How to deal with the prevalence of demonization towards Muslims and other groups that’s becoming more prevalent in America currently
  • Whether nuclear weapons have actually made the world safer, and speculations on what might become of heavy-duty weaponry if a transition to a stateless society occurred
  • How to deal with a family member’s staunchly statist significant other
  • How Americans should feel about their history, and whether or not America’s best days are behind it

Thanks to Caitlyn, Brett, Jim, and Leo for their questions!

Ep. 0069: Listener Emails #1

Join Prof CJ as he discusses:

  • Surprisingly subversive themes in fiction and cinema (Note: I recorded my response to this prior to doing my film review of 71, which is why that review wasn’t mentioned.)
  • Whether an anarchistic society could have security from external threats
  • How to design a history curriculum for school-age youths that would really educate them about the facts of history and how to think for themselves
  • Possible similarities between George Washington and “the Donald”?
  • CJ shares a Facebook post he wrote about flags & slavery

Thanks to listeners Ben, Justin, Ray, & Max for their emails!
