Carlin would have made a great high school history teacher. Most of them just kill any interest in the subject by drilling students on dry dates and lists of politicians. Carlin puts you right there.

I had a similar professor in college. Mrs. Stein, who must have been 65 or so. She taught history from a human angle, and made you feel like she must have been there. Maybe she had been.

One story of hers stuck with me. Her father, a professor at the University of Chicago, had worked on the Manhattan Project. After much pleading, he was granted a few days off to visit home, but was sternly instructed NOT to visit his old campus. They didn't want him discussing the project with any of his old colleagues. Well, he was walking one day at home and happened to pass by the campus. He thought about going inside, but then a man stepped out from around a wall and said, "Uh, uh, Professor. No visiting the school, remember?"

Ok ... so ... you like the epidsode?

  • Feb 3, 2009 - "Show 26 - (BLITZ) Addicted to Bondage" - Is slavery a natural feature of human societies? Dan looks at this timeless, evil institution and wonders if we have made as much progress freeing ourselves from its influence as we think we have.

That was an awesome production! He deserves to be recognized by the podcast community for the Punic Nightmares series!

The one on slavery really made me think - and I've thought about this quite a bit before obviously.

You can't have a free society (i.e. absolute self-ownership) without the right to contract, which includes the possibility of signing yourself into indentured servitude.  A loan contract you might sign might have this remedy in case of default, and it is very likely to be a big part of a restitution-based legal system.

The fundamental difference is that in a free society indentured servitude can't be imposed on someone based on race or any other distinction, nor can it ever be imposed by force - the most obvious violation of one's self-ownership, the (negative) right to liberty.  And it cannot pass from generation to generation.

(1)  Don't get your hopes up before mid-May.

(2)  Sending in "a buck a show" might help encourage him.
