In this episode of Freedom Lovin’, Kevin reads one more excerpt from The Sovereign Individual, which explores both the pros and cons of what the “twilight” of democracies and modern nation states will look like as the world moves toward a decentralized, digital realm of voluntary transactions.

Topics discussed:

  • Kevin’s next trip to Brazil and attempts to learn Portuguese.

  • How the creation of digital assets and payments to private actors will supplant government-provided services.

  • How the breakdown of governments’ monopolies on organized crime benefits other organized crime groups like cartels.

  • Why we will see diminishing marginal returns in the form of increasing taxes and decreasing benefits.

  • How we ourselves can help build a world based on voluntarism right now.

And more!
