The Details for the Block-Wenzel Debate 'Resolved Humans Are Hardwired Against Freedom' Are Out

The debate will be held at The Octopus Literary Salon located in Oakland, California in the hip Uptown district at 2101 Webster St on Saturday, September 28 from 6:30 PM to 8:30 PM. There is no charge to attend in person and it will also be live-streamed from here at Target Liberty.

NOTE: I have been notified that The Octopus Literary Salon is closing at the end of August. We will be relocating the debate to San Francisco, please return to this post for details.

"Hey, support The Octopus, please?"

  1. The top line of their website is a plea for contributions to their GoFundMe page to help them stay afloat. I didn't have to check to know that the minimum wage in Oakland has been jacked above the market clearing wage.

  2. If you don't analyze the hardwiring across races, then you both will be missing out on the very important fact that there is a pro-freedom race, whereas other races are anti-freedom.

  3. Humans are not anti-freedom: in fact any wild animal would resist confinement or restrictions on its freedom, people aren't an exception.

    What people are hard-wired for is dominance/submission signaling, which evolved (way before humans) as a way to reduce intraspecies aggression. This is one of the basic results in ethology (the study of animal behavior). The outcome of that is inevitable appearance of social hierarchies. Now, these don't have to be violent (as in free market based societies), but they are also easy to subvert and exploit by psychopathic operators. Which is what governments are.
