My guest this week is the brilliant author, journalist, classicist, and historian, Dr. Thomas Fleming. Dr. Fleming first appeared on my radar as a founding member of what was then called The Southern League. We discuss what happened with that organization and what he thinks of secession these days. Dr. Fleming was also the man that Murray Rothbard reached out to and their friendship sprung the paleo-libertarian alliance at the John Randolph Club. We discuss those days and his thoughts on Murray Rothbard and that brand of libertarianism. Then we get into why libertarianism and individuality are simply not enough for a peaceful society. The left will create chaos with the voids that unsupplemented libertarianism leaves. And I couldn't let him get out of here without asking him about his days hanging out with Lou Reed and the Velvet Underground.
