Scott and Karl finish their discussion of Lysander Spooner's 1870 essay No Treason No. 6: "The Constitution of No Authority."

While the duo believes Spooner is metaphysically wrong about the nature of government, this essay will leave you with a lasting impression. Karl asks, "How can you compel someone to stay in an organization which he freely joined? It turns out, government isn't contractual. It is based in violence."

While it may be a hard pill to swallow, be sure to tune in for Part Two of Scott and Karl's discussion. Brought to you by onlinegreatbooks.com.
