Episode details

I was on a road trip and dropped in on my friend Kris Bex. He is one of the most well-read libertarians I know, and I wanted to ask him, "How does someone discover their own first principles?" It's been my experience through reading and learning history that I feel less manipulated, and therefore less anxious, about the world today than many of my friends sitting on social media. Kris gives his perspective on why someone needs to understand their own fundamental principles, and what process they can use to do it.
