In this episode, David and Stratty dive deep into David's recent paper, "Statism's Catch-22: An Austro-Libertarian Analysis of 'Self-Determination of Peoples' under International Law." This paper makes the case that the international law doctrine of self-determination has internal contradictions which place the international system in a catch-22 dilemma. This dilemma lays groundwork for the wholesale delegitimization of statism. You don't want to miss this one! You can access the whole paper for free here -> https://austrianstudentconference.com/wp-content/uploads/2021/02/ASSC-2021-David-Hoffa.pdf

In this episode, we have a long conversation with our good friend Cotton on Friedrich Nietzsche. We talk about his ideas, his influence on subsequent thinkers, and attempt to find what we can learn from him about politics, law, and how to practically spread liberty. Would Nietzsche have been a paleo-conservative? Can Cotton do an impersonation of Nietzsche? It's all in this episode!

Follow Cotton on Twitter @Cottonarchist, and follow his podcast Dissecting Liberty @Dissectingliby. He and his co-host recently discontinued the show, but they have a great catalogue of episodes worth checking out.

We were very glad in this episode to talk with Mr. Joe Becker from the Mises Institute! Mr. Becker earned his MA in economics at UNLV, studying under Murray Rothbard and Hans-Hermann Hoppe, afterwards earning a JD at North Illinois University. He has spent his career as a lawyer in the liberty movement, working as a public interest litigator, as a member of Ron Paul's congressional staff and for Dr. Paul's 2008 presidential campaign. These days he works as provost for the Mises Institute's new Master's degree program. In this episode we ask him a number of questions about his time as a lawyer, and we get his take on some legal theory questions.
