True Greatness - with Dr. Ben Merkle

True Greatness - with Dr. Ben Merkle

There are a few parallels between modern America and the kingdom inherited by Alfred the Great. It was crumbling from within, besieged from without, and poised at the crossroads between greatness and oblivion. How did this unexpected king build the foundations that England and the United States still rest on? And how does he stack up against the pantheon of other Great military leaders in history?

Book Review: "Gun Country: Gun Capitalism, Culture, and Control in Cold War America"

Book Review: "Gun Country: Gun Capitalism, Culture, and Control in Cold War America"

Author Andrew McKevitt's book Gun Country posits that America's unique love for guns appeared in the late 20th century, growing out of a love of cheap WWII surplus arms, Cold War commie fear, and 1960s race riots. Is it this simple? And is his description of "gun capitalism" a helpful way to talk about the Citizen Defense Industry?

Drone Wars 4.5 - Too Hot for YouTube

The Drone Wars videos that we've been posting on the T.Rex Labs channel are valuable explorations of technology meeting combat, but there are certain things that we cannot show or talk about under Google's content rules. Those conversations will come here, to this podcast. Today we look closer at Ukraine's cheap suicide drones and what they mean in the context of just war theory, and the future of war in general.

The grim and terrible videos of explosive attacks on defenseless footsoldiers might be verboten on Youtube, but they raise a number of questions. Is technology...

New Agencies, Zombie Guns, and ATF Raids - Triple Threat!

New Agencies, Zombie Guns, and ATF Raids - Triple Threat!

There are three grave threats to firearm freedoms: giant unaccountable government agencies, ignorant and emotionally-driven laws, and bad enforcement policies. Sometimes the stars align and you see perfect examples of all three pop up in a single weekend. 

Today we will look at the Department of Justice's brand new National Extreme Risk Protection Order Resource Center (NERPORC for short), the even more hilariously named Destroy Zombie Guns Act, and the tragic ATF raid on the home of Bryan Malinowski.
