The first four minutes of the speech has too much verbal wheel spinning – but it sorta hits stride 5 minutes into the 44 minute spiel when I tell how I hijacked a Massachusetts Turnpike tollbooth. The talk also includes sordid details about my pathbreaking work at the Harvard Business School, learning how not to shovel working with the Va. Highway Department, raiding GATT headquarters in Geneva, Switzerland, and getting tarred as a federal undercover agent in North Carolina. The highlight of the Q&A is the story of almost getting stabbed by an angry Boston sculptor lady I met at a natural food store.
The full title for the speech was “Libertarian Hooliganism: Having Fun Raising Hell for Freedom.” I have to tip my hat to James Babb – who came up with that title when I spoke to the LP Penn last summer. It was too good not to recycle.
Thanks to Red Pill Recording for their excellent video work and thanks to Liam Leane for getting the video up online. And I appreciated Brian Lewis sitting in the front row during the talk so I could watch his reaction to tell if the damn jokes were working.
Most of the stories in this speech are plucked from Public Public Hooligan.
