Announcing Jon Stewart Vs. Whereaminow
I am thrilled to see Jon have Judge Napolitano on his show tonight. I just finished watching my DVR recording and it's time to hit the sack.
The great thing about this interview (and I am excited about watching the full clip on the web link later. Jon ran out of time ) is that Jon asked what I would call "the best articulated mainstream liberal challenges to libertarianism." That's a little different than saying the best challenges to libertarianism. For that you'd have to possess a deeper understandinging of those thorny ethical issues that philosophers twist themselves and others up in. But for the mainstream liberal view, Stewart spoke it tonight with more clarity than I can recall hearing.
So what I'm going to do this weekend is write up a post tackling each question one by one with my answers. Judge Napolitano was great and brilliant, but I can do better :)
[Of course given time and a keyboard rather than the pressures of the lights, Judge would wipe the floor with me. Both he and Jon did an excellent job and a full formal debate between the two would probably be outstanding.]
I think it'll be a fun challenge. And I think you'll enjoy the continued conversation.
We'll see you this weekend, probably over football.
