Robby Soave is an associate editor and writer for Reason magazine and author of Panic Attack: Young Radicals in the Age of Trump which investigates the shift in activist culture on college campuses since Trump’s election in 2016. He and Bridget discuss why everyone hates libertarians, the spectrum of libertarianism, how both the Left and the Right see the other side’s extreme radicalism as a reason to up their own, and the unfortunate reality that tiny fringes on both side are so loud they drown out the majority of moderates. They talk consent culture, when speech became violence, weighing the positive gains from activism versus taking it too far, and the truth about hate crime statistics.
