I consider all civil interviews & open-minded discussions (as opposed to those acrimonious, combative, shrill & interruptive sorts one will often hear conducted by the anchors and hosts on CNN, MSNBC, & Fox) between thoughtful people of well considered opinion, principle & position to inherently be good news, hence their inclusion here on the The Black Sheep Herald, whether the content of said conversations be serious & dire or not. That is, I consider these types of conversations, both in tone and content, to be part of the solution, both long term and in the moment, and make the world a better place, right now.
This is a conversation between two pillars of the voluntarist community (aka voluntaryist, and has nothing to do with “volunteering”): James Corbett of the The Corbett Report, and Larken Rose, both major and prolific good guys in the libertarian and truther communities, and men I expect I could live happily and cooperatively in community with.
Here they civilly and interestingly discuss “statism” (the adverse of voluntarism), the longstanding and current paradigm of human society.

Is a belief in governmental authority analogous to religious belief? Or is it simply a religious belief in and of itself?
