Independence Day: America’s Subversive Holiday

On this episode of Radio Rothbard, Ryan McMaken and Tho Bishop discuss a recent Mises Wire article about how the state uses holidays as a culture war weapon. Independence Day offers the rare opportunity for opponents of the regime to strike back on a holiday that explicitly celebrates secession and self-determination.
