'Pure Liberal' Fire


Follow This Show

Stay in the know about new episodes and updates.
---Commentary and analysis from a unique vantage point. A vivid alternative to conventional rightist/conservative and leftist/progressive politics and philosophy. I discuss issues from an updated classical liberal or Enlightenment liberal perspective. This can also be seen as a variant of libertarian and Objectivist thought. ----------"Pure liberalism" is based upon the best and truest of the traditional liberal cultures of Greece, Rome, Europe, and America (all sadly defunct). It's also based upon the best and truest of the avant-garde theories of Austrian economics, libertarian politics, and Objectivist philosophy. ----------"Pure liberalism" is essentially the philosophy of reason, rationality, logic, and science; the ethics of individualism, self-interest, and personal happiness; the politics of liberty, justice, and individual rights; the aesthetics of vivacity, dynamism, and heroism; and the (rational) spirituality of the transcendent, the sublime, and the infinite. (Objectivism, libertianism, classical liberalism, freedom, liberty, Ayn Rand.) (Nathaniel Branden, David Kelley, Robert Bidinotto, Leonard Peikoff, Ron Paul, Rand Paul, Gary Johnson, Founding Fathers, Jefferson, Madison, Hayek, Von Mises.)
