Call in to speak with the host
The work of the Cato Institute -- producing top quality intellectual ammunition unyielding in its defense of economic freedom and the unalienable rights of the individual over the encroachments of big government -- is clearly threatened by the decision of Charles and David Koch to file a lawsuit against the Institute and Bill Niskanen's widow, Kathryn Washburn. These actions put an internal governance dispute into the light of day, and the enemies of liberty are having a field day exploiting the distraction. We don't always agree with individual Cato scholars, but that is precisely the point. They are independent, and their independence is their most valuable asset in the push and pull of the public debate.
It's good to talk.
