Decentralization and Local Governance: A Strategic Plan for a Peaceful Revolution, with Dr. Michael Rectenwald

Summary – Decentralization and Local Governance: A Strategic Plan for a Peaceful Revolution, with Dr. Michael Rectenwald

I interviewed Dr. Michael Rectenwald in this episode. Dr. Rectenwald is the author of twelve books, including “The Great Reset and the Struggle for Liberty: Unraveling the Global Agenda”, and is a distinguished fellow at Hillsdale College and a frequent contributor to the Mises Institute. He was a Professor of Liberal Studies and Global Liberal Studies at NYU from 2008 to 2019.

He also taught at Duke University, North Carolina Central University, Carnegie Mellon University, and Case Western Reserve University. His scholarly and academic essays have appeared in numerous public journals and outlets, including The Quarterly Journal of Austrian Economics, The British Journal for the History of Science, and the Cambridge University Press anthology. He holds a Ph.D. in Literary and Cultural Studies from Carnegie Mellon University, a Master’s in English Literature from Case Western Reserve University, and a B.A. in English Literature from the University of Pittsburgh.

Michael recently announced his bid to seek the nomination of the Libertarian Party for President of the United States. We talked about his decision to run, and what he is hoping to accomplish with his campaign. We dived into multiple conversations, including how to effectively engage in local politics, the intersections between Christianity and libertarianism, our similar journeys to libertarianism/anarchism as two former leftists, and how libertarianism offers principles and effective solutions to divisive political/cultural issues such as abortion.
