Does Tucker Carlson Get Anything Right About Libertarians?: Podcast

• https://reason.com

It's rare that a 15-minute cable news spiel gets talked about even one day later, let alone five, but here we are with Fox News host Tucker Carlson's headline-making monologue asserting that "market capitalism is not a religion, it's a tool," warning that "any economic system that weakens or destroy families is not worth having," and serially calling out libertarians by name.

So Katherine Mangu-Ward, Nick Gillespie, Matt Welch and Peter Suderman begin today's Reason Podcast, editors' roundtable edition, with an extended conversation about what Carlson gets right and (mostly) wrong, and how his critique overlaps both with modern reformoconism and some elements of Elizabeth Warren-style populism. The discussion also ranges across Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, the "military version of eminent domain," and best practices for purging children's toys.
