In this episode of The Shift, host Doug McKenty discusses the philosophical roots of modern-day liberalism with author, blogger, and political philosopher J. Todd Ring. This conversation continues to expand on the concept of left-libertarianism in the hopes of cultivating a “big tent” consisting of the many who currently identify with either side of the left/right divide, but have concerns about the deterioration of boundaries between individual autonomy and state power. Listen in as they discuss a disturbing trend among modern-day liberals who seem detached from historical values that included prescribed limits on state and corporate power.
