Audio: Tom Woods and Ryan McMaken on Policing and Abolishing the FBI

Tags Legal SystemThe Police StatePolitical Theory


Last week, Tom Woods and I spoke on the Tom Woods show about the FBI, its origins, and its crimes. We also took a look at some issues surrounding policing and why modern law enforcement is made more dangerous and more difficult by the state's drive to manage and control every aspect of daily life. 

We covered several articles from my recent three-part series on policing, found here, and on my article "Abolish the FBI."
