S1E23 - In the News

Cody and Stanton are missing Kristi, so, if you were looking for sunshine, she took it with her.

Welcome to Self-Evident and Forgotten, a podcast on the truths of liberty and odd opinions! Hosted by Stanton, Kristi, and Cody, we explore the beautiful ideas often forgotten today that have given life to a free, peaceful, and prosperous society.

Alas, we're missing our vital chairwoman, because she's as busy as the last few weeks have been. It's been a rather wild time since we last saw each other. The United States fully pulled out of Afghanistan with tragic losses, the 20th anniversary of the September 11th attacks has passed, President Biden has begun to implement firmer vaccination mandates,  it appears the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff had active plans to prevent President Donald Trump from executing his constitutional powers, and Texas is being Texas. Just a normal workday, though, right?

S1E22 - The One About Infrastructure

A $1 trillion dollar spending bill, on anything, should raise the alarms for anyone with a shred of fiscal awareness. But what about a spending bill on infrastructure is dangerous to liberty?

Welcome to Self-Evident and Forgotten, a podcast on the truths of liberty and odd opinions! Hosted by Stanton, Kristi, and Cody, we explore the beautiful ideas often forgotten today that have given life to a free, peaceful, and prosperous society.

A couple of weeks ago, the United States Senate passed a $1 trillion dollar infrastructure bill, the largest in over a decade. It's the byproduct of bipartisan compromise, with President Biden and Senate Democrats sacrificing grander plans and Republicans acquiescing to some greener projects. But we here at SEF have a critical question: does such a spending plan fit the often-forgotten ideas that made our country spectacular?

Here's a link to the Freakonomics episode on infrastructure. Worth a listen for a detailed look on how progressives and conservatives see the issue differently.

S1E21 - Foreign Policy 2

We finish our discussion on foreign policy, and take our principles to task as we consider China!

Welcome to Self-Evident and Forgotten, a podcast on the truths of liberty and odd opinions! Hosted by Stanton, Kristi, and Cody, we explore the beautiful ideas often forgotten today that have given life to a free, peaceful, and prosperous society.

Last time, we started a discussion on foreign policy, setting out our individual principles for foreign policy. We began to see the differences and the disagreements that started to sprout up. Today, we're going to use an historically backed hypothetical scenario to test our principles and ask -- what would we do in those situations?

S1E20 - Foreign Policy for a Free People (1)

How do freedom lovers think about foreign policy? What role does a government have in exercising power abroad?

Welcome to Self-Evident and Forgotten, a podcast on the truths of liberty and odd opinions! Hosted by Stanton, Kristi, and Cody, we explore the beautiful ideas often forgotten today that have given life to a free, peaceful, and prosperous society.

With the United States withdrawing from Afghanistan after two decades, many people wonder: what's next for America and her foreign policy? Well, what exactly is foreign policy? It's the collection of goals, plans, and actions by a national government in dealing with governments, companies, groups, and individuals from other nations. Sometimes, if you know what you're doing, you're able to direct those policies toward a general objective. What those objectives are can be the difference between sanctions and trade, war and peace. Today, we're going to explore how different kinds of freedom lovers think on foreign policy.

S1E19 - Woke Bureaucrats

With Republicans going after wokeness in institutions like the military, we have a question: how does a free people account for ideology among bureaucrats?

Welcome to Self-Evident and Forgotten, a podcast on the truths of liberty and odd opinions! Hosted by Stanton, Kristi, and Cody, we explore the beautiful ideas often forgotten today that have given life to a free, peaceful, and prosperous society.

Recently, the Chairman for the Joint Chiefs of Staff (the military council that advises the president) General Mark A. Milley has come under heat for his remarks before a Congressional panel. The subject of his current disagreement with Republicans his defending policies in the military that purportedly teach our armed service men and women "woke" ideas that Republicans think undermine our military preparedness. The debate is confused, but reveals a wider problem  -- ideological bureaucrats.

S1E18 - Insidious, Infiltrating, Irritable: The Irrational Instance of Inflation

More alliteration abounds as Stanton and Cody discuss what happens when Biden's Budget and government spending in general gets out of control.

Welcome to Self-Evident and Forgotten, a podcast on the truths of liberty and odd opinions! Hosted by Stanton, Kristi, and Cody, we explore the beautiful ideas often forgotten today that have given life to a free, peaceful, and prosperous society.

We're missing Kristi again! So, Cody and Stanton yuck it up over something rather...yucky. As we and others across the state and country come together in person, more and more businesses are opening, schools are hopefully going back to in-person learning in the fall…it feels like things are getting back to normal. But, there's a growing threat now that people are back into the regular economic drive, a consequence born from misguided government policy. Welcome to the terrible, no-good world of inflation. It's insidious, it's powerful, and its threat to a free society is almost entirely unknown to most Americans.

Here's the link to Kristi's article: https://www.google.com/amp/s/thehill.com/opinion/white-house/557037-bidens-massive-budget-proposal-leaves-the-nation-fiscally-vulnerable%3famp

And forgive Stanton's echo-like sound. He's just moved into a new office and is still playing with the quality.
