HANS-HERMANN HOPPE: Somebody approached me with a wish – it was a question, if email addresses would like to be shared.  I did not want to do anything without the people’s permission, so there will be a list at the front desk where you can maybe – the name list of all the participants where you can either write your email address in there or not if you prefer not to make your email address known to others.  So whoever is interested, please take advantage of the opportunity, and David Durr wanted to make a brief announcement too.  Give the microphone.

Kinsella on Liberty Podcast, Episode 337 (May 23, 2021).This is my appearance on Join the Wasabikas: A Bitcoin Privacy Podcast, Ep. 15.0, with Max Hillebrand.

Transcript below.

From the shownotes:

Stephan Kinsella is an incredible scholar of the Austrian school of praxeology, his major contribution is the advancement of the arguments in favor of property of scarce goods, and against intellectual property of non-scarce goods. He applies his in depth wisdom to how Bitcoin can be explained in this view.

We discussed a variety of topics related to bitcoin, property rights, Austrian economics, and so on. Shownotes for the full episode:

Michael Malice has an excellent new compendium out, The Anarchist Handbook, excerpting key writings of a number of important anarchist thinkers. They are, in order:

  • Peter Kropotkin
  • William Godwin
  • Leo Tolstoy
  • Max Stirner
  • Alexander Berkman
  • Pierre-Joseph Proudhon
  • Voltairine de Cleyre
  • Herbert Spencer
  • Emma Goldman
  • Josiah Warren
  • Charles Robert Plunkett
  • Mikhail Bakunin
  • Linda and Morris Tannehill
  • Lysander Spooner
  • David Friedman
  • Johann Most
  • Murray Rothbard
  • Louis Lingg
  • John Hasnas
  • Benjamin R. Tucker
  • Michael Malice

His selections are of course not comprehensive, but while going over his list a few other important anarchist thinkers occurred to me who are not included. I offer this eclectic list as a supplement for those looking for further readings along the lines of Malice’s collection. My list is also not comprehensive; it is mostly some of my personal favorites or influences. Readers are invited to submit other possible important works I have missed. [continue reading…]

KOL334 | On Habeas Data with Sebastian

Play

Kinsella on Liberty Podcast, Episode 334.

A libertarian named Sebastian is researching the issue of “habeas data” from a libertarian perspective, and wanted to discuss with me. So we did.

This involves issues and questions such as:

  • Proposition: Habeas Data is emerging in some countries as a legal or constitutional writ predicated on a personal autonomy right to one’s personal data.
  • From a libertarian perspective, is this a type of bodily/personal autonomy “property” right?
  • What if the data is held by a public official/state organization and the habeas data remedy is limited to access/correcton/deletion from a public database? Is this libertarian?
  • Is our private data always private vis-a-vis the never claim-of-right of the State?  Is that at odds with a bodily autonomy view of privacy/private property (information) rights?
    • This is of interest as the Latin American/OAS writ is trending toward personal information as a kind of personal (bodily) autonomy right.
  • What is the relation between Habeas Data and Right to Know/Right to Truth in Human Rights Law?
  • How does the notion of Habeas Data relate to the libertarian critique of intellectual property and ownership of information?
