Kinsella on Liberty Podcast, Episode 181.

I discussed argumentation ethics with Tom Woods on his show today:

Ep. 370 It Is Impossible to Argue Against Libertarianism Without Contradiction

Stephan Kinsella discusses the argumentation ethics of Hans-Hermann Hoppe, who argues that only libertarian norms can be argumentatively.

Tom cleverly chose as the title for the episode a provocative one reminiscent of the bold title of Hoppe’s Liberty article,  “The Ultimate Justification of the Private Property Ethic”  (September 1988).

I’ve discussed it several times in the past in audio and text. See, e.g.:

Update: response by Bob Murphy here: Stephan Kinsella Discusses Argumentation Ethics With Tom Woods. For more: see Defending Argumentation Ethics: Reply to Murphy & Callahan, Anti-state.com (Sept. 19, 2002) (wayback version) (reply to Bob Murphy and Gene Callahan, Hans-Hermann Hoppe’s Argumentation Ethic: A CritiqueAnti-state.com (Sept. 19, 2002; wayback version; more recent version at JLS; Block’s rejoinder); debate discussed in this forum).

Kinsella on Liberty Podcast, Episode 179.

Jeff Tucker and I discuss the recent copyright lawsuit over the “Blurred Lines” song by Robin Thicke and Pharrel.

Background and related:

From this post: “In the case of copyright, for example, J.D. Salinger, author of Catcher in the Ryeconvinced U.S. courts to ban the publication of a novel called 60 Years Later: Coming Through the Rye.” And in Canada, when a grocery store in Canada mistakenly sold 14 copies of a new Harry Potter book a few days before its official release, a judge  “ordered customers not to talk about the book, copy it, sell it or even read it before it is officially released at 12:01 a.m. July 16″ (on both cases, see Atlas Hefts: The Sequel!).”
