Episode 9 of my video and podcast series, Salon of the Refused, is now available.
I talk with Bob Garmong, former lecturer at Dongbei University of Finance and Economics and author of a forthcoming study on the political thought of John Stuart Mill, about Mill and the history of political “liberalism.” The conversation includes: Locke vs. Mill, how a “buttoned down guy with pointy hair” unleashed “sex, drugs, and rock and roll,” how Mill turned liberalism on its head, the origin of the dichotomy between property rights and human rights, and how Mill’s defense of free speech is the Frankenstein monster that unleashed the anti-speech campus mobs.
The podcast is available through iTunes or Google Play, or listen to it here.
