Philosopher Dr. Diana Hsieh interviewed professor John P. McCaskey about "Libertarianism's Moral Shift" in this episode of Philosophy in Action Radio. 

As the libertarian movement has become more mainstream in recent decades, its justification for liberty has changed. How so – and is that change for the better? Is the libertarian movement today capable of offering a vigorous and compelling defense of liberty? 

Dr. John P. McCaskey is an historian of philosophy who spent twenty years in the computer industry before returning to academia. He has been teaching at Stanford University, Stevens Institute of Technology, and most recently in the Political Science department at Brown University.
