Jeff Deist returns to the show to comment on Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s passing. Was Bader Ginsburg a judge or legislator? “She was a judge in name only, someone with a political agenda,” Deist says. Are there genuine revolutionaries in America? How does Keynesianism overlap with Fascism? “It’s no coincidence that Mussolini would praise Keynes; every dictator would need the financial wherewithal to spend without restraint.” Listen to the full episode for all this and more.
