Jeff Deist, former chief of staff to Ron Paul and current president of the Mises Institute, joins me to discuss how we should think about social media de-platforming and what it means (surely libertarians have something more to say than “they’re private companies,” as if we’re never allowed to criticize private companies). We also discuss political correctness: maybe it wasn’t just about politeness after all, and maybe it wasn’t just a figment of the right-wing’s imagination.
