On this episode of Radio Rothbard, Ryan McMaken and Tho Bishop look at the domestic costs of 9/11 and its continuing impact on Americans. The two discuss articles they wrote this week about how the events sowed the seeds of the current regime, how it reversed the trajectory of rising government skepticism in the 90s, and the need for accountability still to this day.
