I had a chuckle when I saw a notification that the latest episode of The Tom Woods Show successfully downloaded this morning. A title a bit too fitting for its spot in the show’s enormous audio library, I’d say:
The episode’s feature is actually an interview from 2014. The frustration of the libertarian right–for which Tom Woods is one of the most eloquent and accessible spokesmen–at that time is impossible to miss. That libertarianism became a pipeline to the alt right seems bemusing now, but as the episode illustrates, it was easier to understand five years ago that it does today.
To be crystal clear, I am not implying this was at all intentional on Woods’ part. There’s a good chance he doesn’t even know what the nefarious number string refers to.
++Addition++Ha, maybe not:
It’s a sad commentary on The Current Year that as good a guy as Woods feels compelled to dance around an innocuous sequential number but maybe an episode about fractional reserve banking or something would’ve been better if it really was a deciding factor. The Loser Brigade is sure to claim he doth protest too much!
