Kinsella on Liberty Podcast, Episode 221.

This is my first speech at Mises Brasil’s 2017 “V Conferência de Escola Austríaca” [5th Austrian School Conference], Mises BrasilUniversidade Mackenzie, São Paolo, Brazil (May 12–13, 2017): “State Legislation versus Law and Liberty.” The Q&A is included even though the questions are in Portugese; most answers should make sense given the context. This is a recording from my iPhone; video and higher quality audio will be linked later.

Kinsella on Liberty Podcast, Episode 220.

This is my interview by Rod Rojas of the Future Gravy show, which focuses on bitcoin and blockchain topics. We discussed how patents harm innovation and various strategies some companies use to try to deal with the patent threat, such as patent pooling, defensive patent licensing, whether Blockstream’s Patent Pledge is really a tactic that makes them a patent threat to the blockchain community, and related matters.

The video is embedded below.

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.
