Personal Note: Sorry we haven't recorded a new episode this week. Nate & Charlie both have CoVid! Nate is now at 6 consecutive days with a fever >100. We will survive, but forcing an episode right now is not the best thing to do. Luckily we just recorded 17 interviews at FreedomFest last week.
Our friend Rob Chatfield was at FreedomFest last week premiering FTCN's new documentary "Corporate Welfare: Wheres the Outrage?"
As you may know, we here at GML are not fans of the "Corporate Welfare" narrative. Is it unfair? Of course... But where does that unfairness begin? If we believe that "Taxation is Theft," then we believe that the government has no claim to the money it takes through force. How can we hold that belief, and then call it "welfare" when the amount of theft is reduced?
Anyway, we had a long talk with Rob about it. Charlie threw out is best (in the moment) analogies, and Rob easily knocked them down. It made for a fun conversation regardless! It's unlikely that either of us swayed from our original stance, but we talked through our differences and still came out friends in the end. Turns out it is possible in 2021 to have a major policy difference and still remain civil...who woulda known?
Robert Chatfield serves as President and Chief Executive Officer of Free To Choose Network (FTCN), a global media organization. How the heck we ever met/became friends with him is a mystery to us. We've been watching "Free to Choose" for quite a long time, and it's truly an honor to meet and discuss great topics with Rob.
