Stefan Molyneux Freaks Out on the Gumbo
Stefan Molyneux has 43 cups of double espresso and then talks with Michael W. Dean about anarchy, guns, leftie anarchists, Hunger Games, homeschooling, the Canadian health care system, BDSM and kink, border crossings, recording gear, Boston T. Party, and a whole bunch of other nifty stuff.
At one point, Stefan gets madder than I’ve ever heard him and cusses a bunch at the lunacy of the world. It’s a beautiful thing.

2014 UPDATED: Boston T. Party pointed out that I rather inelegantly (mis)-paraphrased Boston’s position on guns and libertarians. Here are Boston’s actual words:
“Libertarian philosophy is, in the end, moot if its adherents have no final resort of armed defense, and freedom has usually required the shedding of blood on battlefields. If history has taught us anything, it’s that liberty is won and maintained by Riflemen. As Heinlein once wrote:
“The price of freedom is the willingness to do sudden battle, anywhere, anytime, and with utter recklessness.
“Willingness to do sudden battle implies capability to do sudden battle. You must already have the tools, training, and practice to fight effectively. When you are capable and willing to fight, then you have options. When you are capable and willing to fight, then your enemy will perhaps fear and avoid you.
“But not until then.
“If you do not have — right now — an FAL, M1, M1A, or HK91, then there is something you have chosen not to own for your freedom. If you do own such a rifle but cannot — right now — from offhand position hit a dinner plate at 100yds within 5 seconds on demand without fail, then there is a skill you have chosen not to earn for your freedom.
“If you are not a Rifleman — right now — then you have announced to the world that your commitment to liberty goes only just so far. If you will not spend a summer and the price of a used jet ski to become a Rifleman — to become a deadly foe of tyranny — then you are just mouthing platitudes, treating liberty as a hobby and expecting brave men to do your fighting for you. If you’re not a Rifleman — you’re just a hobbyist.
“By choosing to move to a state where you can’t become a Rifleman, a hobbyist is what you’ll remain. The Nerf and Egghead Libertarians don’t like hearing this, obviously, but facts are stubborn things.
“The state that separates its scholars from its warriors will have its thinking done by cowards, and its fighting done by fools. — Thucydides
“FSPers in New Hampshire without battle rifles are like libertarians in Manhattan without handguns.
“All are at the mercy of any determined band of thugs. If you’re not a Rifleman in the country or a Pistolero in the city, then you’re merely food waiting to be eaten. You can scream No initiation of force! all the way down your aggressor’s gullet. Big deal. All fish wriggle when caught.”
