    Great conversation.
    I’ve been around this whatchamcallit movement since 1976, and I think there HAS been some progress, but it’s a lot less than what we had all hoped for. But it’s still progress. Liberty not in my lifetime, or Sheldon’s or Bob’s, but maybe in another century or two. Which is good enough to keep at it — even if we don’t enjoy the shade of the trees we’ve planted, we were part of making those trees happen.

    Sheldon has been one of my favorites in this movement for a long, long time. I’m very glad you had him on the show.

    As to persuading people towards liberty, it’s true that arguments alone rarely work. We need to reach people in their “feels” in order for our words to resonate. It’s something we are learning to do. Slowly, but we’re learning.
