Today it is a given that government and business working together is the best of all possible worlds. As long as government either keeps business closely in check or if government stays mostly out of the business of business. But what if government didn’t exist at all? What would that look like?

In this conversation, we will be delving into the idea that government is not necessarily a given and that its role in so many aspects of our life corrupts and pollutes with bad incentives and moral hazards. Whether it’s business, science, education, health care, law enforcement, or the economy, government intervention because of its very nature, will always have a net negative impact. This is the peaceful anarchist’s premise, and one we will consider via various forays into how we might see the world differently when considering other “truths” than the ones our culture assumes. In this world of left and right, let’s consider something that’s not even in the middle, let’s consider a completely different paradigm than that assumed by the media, the schools, and the cultural zeitgeist.
