I help Paul Jacob make a podcast on Fridays. It is the weekend wrap-up of what he does weekdays on ThisIsCommonSense.org, “This Week in Common Sense.” The current episode is up on BitChute and YouTube . . .

. . . and is available as an audio podcast from most podcatchers as well as hosted directly on SoundCloud:

This Week in Common Sense, December 18, 2020.

Why is politics so crazy right now? Why Trump, and why have the Democrats gone loopy rather than develop their USP as the Party of Sanity?

Well, I have a theory, and I discuss it with Paul Jacob, of ThisIsCommonSense.org:

LocoFoco Netcast #23, featuring Paul Jacob.

And of course the podcast is available from Apple and Google and Spotify and Pocket Cast, as well as on SoundCloud:

LocoFoco Netcast #23, LocoFoco.net.

I help Paul with his podcast. Here is the vlog version:

And here is the podcast as hosted on SoundCloud:

This week’s podcast is up:

LocoFoco Netcast #19, with Robert Wicks.

It is available on Bitchute and Brighteon (though at time of publication, the video was still “processing” on both sites) as well as YouTube:

LocoFoco Netcast #19, with Robert Wicks.

Posted earlier, my notice of the new episode of the podcast. Now it is time to share the video version — is it called merely a vlog or a vlogcast?

LocoFoco Netcast #16, vlog-version, June 29, 2020.

With the kicking of Stefan Molyneux off of YouTube, I have to admit, putting anything up on YouTube bothers me. But we shall survive?

Well, not a “study” so much as merely an example:

So basically Facebook blocks all Brighteon videos. I had merely been trying to share a Styx vid on John Bolton.

How should I express my contempt for the people who run Facebook? They block a whole video source. Because it contains work by people excluded from other sites, such as YouTube and Vimeo. Apparently. (I have not read any of the stories about this.)

I have an account there, on Brighteon. I am trying to upload a video right now. I have not had much success on Bitchute — I upload a video and then it never shows up. But Brighteon hasn’t published my video yet. Says it is “under review.” What? We’ll see how this develops. Finding alternatives to Institutional Evil is a problem. (I have written about it before.)

So, I am abandoning Facebook again for the weekend. I’m on Gab: @wirkman.

And here is me, years ago, irked not about Facebook but by John Bolton:

I make at least one error here. Maybe a big one.

I had a nice long Skype chat with Stephan Kinsella yesterday, and it got me thinking about what my political philosophy means.

It is not my religion.

I don’t get my meaning of life from it — though my sense of life does indeed show through it.

It does not substitute for a personal philosophy, or ethics.

It is not my prophecy for the future, as it may have been for Herbert Spencer and Gustave de Molinari.

This is what I think it is: it is my best advice for reducing conflict, and it is my preferred terms for human interaction.

That latter is pretty important. So, it is signaling. My libertarian ideas send a signal. The signal is TIT for TAT: if you play nice I will; if you play nasty, I may bite.


That conversation with Mr. Kinsella is up on YouTube as well as in podcast (Apple, Google, Spotify, SoundCloud) form:

A Threat to Civilization?

Now up on YouTube, the twelfth episode of my podcast:

LocoFoco #12, featuring Kevin D. Rollins

It is also available as a podcast on Apple, Google, and Spotify, and other podcatchers, as well as at LocoFoco.net:

The leftist definition of fascism — corporate take-over and tyranny — has been enacted not by self-professed fascists, or the Alt-Right, or Donald J. Trump, but by leftists themselves.

For years leftists told libertarians that corporate power could be suppressive, oppressive, tyrannical. Libertarians scoffed. Demanded evidence.

So leftists provided that evidence: they developed major social media (with a little help from the alphabet soup of U.S. “intelligence” agencies) and then used their leverage to censor information, inquiry and opinions that run counter to their narrative and party line. YouTube, Facebook, and Twitter now routinely censor opinions on the coronavirus they (and the World Health Organization) don’t like. And more.

They proved their point. They became the oppressors they warned us about.

Libertarians lost the argument, and are doubly unhappy about it: they were proven wrong and they are oppressed. But leftists? Their win must be . . . bittersweet. I mean, to win by losing: by becoming the very thing you most hate!
