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?

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
