Kinsella on Liberty Podcast, Episode 219.

I delivered a talk earlier today for the Houston Property Rights Association (April 28, 2017), “Property: What It Is and Isn’t,” which sets out the framework for how to view property rights in general and then finally turns to intellectual property. The main talk lasted for about the first 30 minutes; the final hour is Q&A. My speech notes (unedited and raw) are below.

“What Libertarianism Is”: Ukrainian Translation

My article “What Libertarianism Is” has been translated into Ukrainian, as  “Що таке “лібертаріанство.” Ukrainian is a first; with this, my work has now been translated into 15 languages.

 

Що таке “лібертаріанство”

Stephan Kinsella, “What Libertarianism Is”, public translation into Ukrainian from English More about this translation.

Translate into another language.

Власність, права, та свобода

Лібертарі зазвичай мають спільні погляди на широке коло практик та принципів. Тим не менш, досягти консенсусу щодо визначальних характеристик лібертаріанства, або щодо його рис, які вирізняють його з поміж інших політичних теорій та систем, наразі не так вже й просто.

Існує безліч різноманітних формулювань. Стверджується, що лібертаріанство — це про права особистості, права власності[1], вільний ринок, капіталізм, справедливість, або принцип ненападу. Проте, не будь-що з переліченого підходить. Капіталізм та вільний ринок змальовують каталлактичні умови, що постають (чи є прийнятними) в лібертаріанському суспільстві, але вони не розкривають інших аспектів лібертаріанства. А права особистості, справедливість, та ненапад зводяться до прав власності. Як пояснив Мюррей Ротбард, права особистості є не що інше, як права власності.[2] Справедливість же, в свою чергу — це коли кожен отримує належне йому (визначене його правами).[3]

KOL218 | Argumentation Ethics – Patterson in Pursuit

Play

 

Kinsella on Liberty Podcast, Episode 218.

This is Episode 50 of the Patterson in Pursuit podcast, where host Steve Patterson interviews me about Hans-Hermann Hoppe’s argumentation ethics.  Patterson’s description:

If we choose to argue, have we presupposed an ethical framework? Is “self-ownership” a concept that cannot coherently be doubted?

To help me answer these questions, I’m joined by one of the most prominent supporters of “argumentation ethics” – the theory that says ownership is inescapable, and as soon as we choose to argue, we’re committed to a set of ethical values.

I appeared on his previous podcast, Outside the Music Box, a while back. This one is a fresh, stand-alone discussion where I lay out the case against IP fairly methodically.

Ralph Raico, R.I.P.

The great libertarian scholar Ralph Raico died last month (Dec. 13, 2016).1 Ralph and I were friends for the last 20 years. I first met Ralph when I started attending Mises Institute events when I was a young lawyer, in the mid-1990s.2 For many years, he was a fixture at the Mises Institute events I attended. We talked, had lunches, went to dinners together for years. I was at the Mises Institute event in the late 90s, if I recall correctly, that Objectivist George Reisman attended, fresh from his excommunication from the Ayn Rand Institute, where Reisman and Ralph, long-estranged by internecine libertarian squabbles, were reunited and rekindled their friendship. It was a pleasure to see, especially for me, as a former Randian of sorts myself.

In the last few years, Ralph was less mobile, and we would talk on occasion by email, or on the phone. He was supportive of the founding of Hans-Hermann Hoppe’s Property and Freedom Society PFS in 2006, with which I’ve also been involved since its inception, and he was a Senior Fellow at the Mises Institute for many years.
