You know things are out of wack when soft drinks become politicized!
And that’s where we are today.
We’ve politicized virtually everything. But at the core, politics is violence, force and coercion. Surely, that’s not the best way we can come up with to interact with each other and advance human flourishing.
In this episode, Mises Institute president Jeff Deist and I talk about making politics matter less. We focus on other important institutions and other ways of interacting with each other without turning to political solutions.
In his role as president of the Mises Institute, Jeff serves as a speaker and writer advocating for free markets and civil society. He formerly worked as an advisor to Congressman Ron Paul and served as his chief of staff. Jeff has also worked as a tax attorney advising private equity clients on mergers and acquisitions.
