Sheldon Richman joins the show to discuss his latest article “TGIF: Separation, Not Association, Requires Force.” Richman and Scott discuss the pseudo ethno-nationalism of Israel and its appeal to American white nationalists. Richman makes the case that love, association, and trade break down national, cultural, and racial prejudices and that the state builds them up. Richman and Scott discuss the divide within libertarianism between “left” and “right” libertarians over immigration. Richman then discusses the history of the apartheid state in Israel and takes on the common misconceptions about the causes of the 1967 War. Scott then asks Richman about his previous article, “The Abused Jews of Iraq.” Finally Richman considers all the things that might be different if the Zionist movement had failed.
