Ep 7: Is Limited Government Finished?

Even deep greens are worried renewable energy can't save the planet - so why are our political parties making it our energy future (2:43-18:30)? Ross Douthat's article in The New York Times says that the era of limited government is over as conservatives push to use big government to influence culture and society; the panel argues about whether that move is a good thing (18:30-39:12). Chris is in Western Australia for Liberty Week and fronted a Generation Liberty event talking about drug law reform - the panel debate what good drug policy looks like and why drug law shows medical care must be privatised (39:12-51:37).
