Daniel McAdams on the Ron Paul Doctrine

Daniel McAdams of the Ron Paul Institute joins the show to discuss what might be termed the Ron Paul Doctrine: a combination of laissez-faire at home, decentralized domestic political power (up to and including secession), robust free trade, and strict non-intervention abroad, This doctrine—which mirrors Mises’s prescription for a liberal society—makes no phony distinctions between foreign and domestic policy, or between military and economic interventions. It places peace and property at the center of a free society, and calls for humility rather than hubris in politics. Daniel also gives his thoughts on Dr. Paul’s doctrine as it applies today to China, Turkey, Russia, and Iran.
