I decided to host a Twitter Spaces for an AMA on the essay I have at, I opened talking about a Twitter Spat between a so-called “libertarian” editor of Reason Magazine. While you might think it’s an empty twitter exchange, there were some interesting points to pull out.

Then I took questions, which turned into a protracted conversation about the Archotropism framework which I should have been more prepared for, but I think the exchange was interesting.

I conclude the hour talking about how the state of Michigan is charging the parents of a recent school shooter, and I ask - why not the school as well?
