In today's off-topic 10th episode, Jason Hartman talks with Walter E Williams, Professor of Economics at George Mason University and author of American Contempt for Liberty, about what is going on in our society today. America has become a country of people who hate liberty and want to take from others to give to themselves or others who they deem need it more. There seems to be an unwillingness to accept that people earn more than others and thinking that the government needs to step in and play a role. Walter explains to Jason how we can solve our problems by telling the government to get out of the way more than telling them to help.
