Mark’s Minarchist Solution to Government School Funding, Primary and Secondary

February 27th, 2018 - 8:48pm by FTL_Mark in

On 2018-02-24 on Free Talk Live , we discussed the Parkland school shooting. Consistent with our normal MO, we blamed it on the State. Not the State of Florida, the hierarchical, monopoly organizational model.

Mostly this elicited a chorus of voices on 2 sides: 1. Government schools are great and and you two don’t know what you are talking about and 2. You’re right let’s kill government schools and start over. What we didn’t get, naturally, are the people on the fence and I would imagine they are legion.

My Co-Host, Ian, and many hardcore libertarians will howl at my upcoming solution, but they all know, in their hearts that a truly free world will not spring from the head of Zeus tomorrow.

So, I propose a small government solution that is easy and highly implementable, likely over 2 years, a short term in office for a politician. First, give all of the schools to the teachers, administrators,...

It's been another busy week with Free Talk Live. Not only have our new Discord and Twitch been gaining members and followers, but I've been busily upgrading our studio computer. We're also getting closer to actually doing some video game streaming with Jonny Ray on the new LRN Twitch channel .

This week we actually did a couple of interviews including Steve Cobb of the Center for Election Science and Adam Kokesh , who talked about his recent outrageous arrest!

Plus Mark and I were interviewed for nearly two hours straight, mostly about Bitcoin, on KSCO/KOMY in Santa Cruz by station owner Michael Zwerling. Here is that...

"Call to Freedom" Moves to Weekday Afternoon Drive! + Satellite Channel Change

January 7th, 2018 - 3:48pm by FTL_Admin in

It's been a busy weekend preparing for the major programming change coming to LRN.FM starting tomorrow. Monday January 8th. Will Coley's show, "Call to Freedom" is no longer on Sunday nights and has expanded to weekday afternoons, 4-7pm Eastern! Join Will and his guests as they entertain you on your drive home and don't miss the Crypto Hour, every day at 5pm Eastern! They'll be giving away cryptocurrency every day. Tune in live via LRN.FM , on your phone, via your smart home device, or however you do it. You can also catch the encore presentation of Call to Freedom from 3-6am weekdays as well. They're still working on a website and podcast feed, but for now here's the Call to Freedom facebook page .

Here's the first one of sixteen that I made this week:

Don't forget to check out the Free Talk Live forum to get interactive with other listeners and hosts of the show.

Also, please AMP the show for $5 a month and get some cool perks. Thanks so much and have a happy, fun, and safe New Years! (We'll be live on NYE and day, of course.) Ian

Our subdomins (like cam.freetalklive.com) are fixed!

December 23rd, 2017 - 12:07pm by FTL_Admin in

Last year when we flipped to https on freetalklive.com, some stuff broke. For some browsers, our subdomains no longer worked. Subdomains are when a word comes in front of the website, like cam.freetalklive.com . Well, the problem is finally fixed. If you've been having trouble going to sites like forum.freetalklive.com , it should be working now.

Yes we are going to Anarchapulco February 15-18th - and you can get 10% off the regular tickets, which include Cryptopulco, with code FTL at Anarchapulco.com . See you there!

Thank you for listening to Free Talk Live, Ian
