CLS3Stating The Obvious (STO) is the flagship podcast of the Cynical Libertarian Society.

Click “play the podcast” to hear an introductory episode of Stating The Obvious.

The first episode of STO went “live” onto the interwebz in November 1st, 2014.

I don’t care that you started a podcast last month.

At the time I was a right-wing libertarian.  Prior to that I was a left-wing statist liberal Democrat, then a right-wing statist conservative Republican.  Over the years as I did the podcast I moved from right-wing libertarian to right-wing minarchist, to libertarian minarchist, to minarchist and finally to anarcho-capitalist.

So don’t fucking tell me I just “don’t understand” your ideology.  I’ve already experienced your ideology and thrown it away.

The title “Stating The Obvious” is a reflection of the fact that everything I say in this podcast is obvious.  To smart people.  Problem is the other 99% of the population needs to have these things explained to them.

But I don’t do this podcast to explain and educate.  I do this podcast to offend.  And for my personal amusement.

Trigger Warning!  Every episode of Stating The Obvious has bad language and personal insults.  STO is not a Safe Space.

“The whole aim of practical politics is to keep the populace alarmed (and hence clamorous to be led to safety) by an endless series of hobgoblins, most of them imaginary.”  H.L. Mencken
