While Edward Snowden has done heroic things to expose our government’s unjust mass surveillance programs, he’s unfortunately promoting the same theory of privacy that gave rise to those programs. Tune in to hear more. Other stories, too. See Program Notes, below, for all the stories, etc., I plan to discuss.

Edward Snowden just made an impassioned argument for why privacy is the most important right HT Stuart Hayashi
I agree w/ @Snowden that privacy's important, but 4 law to be *objective* property & contract must be fundamental. Privacy's a *consequence*

Right, but not in a cleaned, air-dried percolator. I’ll explain my interest in this on today’s show.
Libertarian Herman Mashaba elected mayor of Johannesburg
Herman Mashaba is a millionaire tycoon, an ideological libertarian and self-proclaimed “capitalist crusader” who lectures his listeners about the evils of big government and minimum wage.
His highest value, he says, is “individual freedom.” He rails against the “culture of dependency” and excessive regulation in South Africa. “I’m just asking the government to leave us alone,” he says.
When a Globe and Mail interviewer suggests that he must be a lonely voice as the only libertarian mayor in the country, he laughs. “I was born alone. My life is not shaped by other people.”
The son of a domestic worker who was widowed when he was 2 years old, he grew up in poverty in a black township near Pretoria. In the apartheid era, when the white-minority regime made it difficult for blacks to enter business, Mr. Mashaba overcame the obstacles and made his fortune by creating a hair-products empire under the “Black Like Me” brand name.
