This episode features an abridged audio version of Jeff Deist's talk from the Mises Circle event in Southern California on 8 November 2014. He argues that the state is losing its primary asset — namely, legitimacy in the eyes of those it would govern — due to its own huge failures. He also argues that we do ourselves, our ancestors, and our progeny a disservice if we give in to despair.
