Connor Boyack is the founder and president of Libertas Institute, a free market think tank in Utah. He is the author of several books, including the popular "Tuttle Twins" series for children, teaching kids age 5-10 about the principles of liberty. Boyack’s most recent book, “Feardom,” is an exposé of how politicians use fearmongering to acquire more power. In this “free market flashback,” Connor characterizes his perspective on the leftist tyranny that has infiltrated the US via the federal government, the public education system, and the mainstream media. He explains his political philosophy and vision, which he refers to as “voluntaryism,” where a civil society is governed by cooperation and voluntary participation in contractual agreements. We discuss the ideas of collectivism, public property, and rights of regulation in relation to current crude policies that have been created by an elite few to implement majority control over immigration, welfare, and egalitarian disputes. Then, Connor places the history of Mormonism into the context of the recent marriage hoopla that has cast a curious rainbow light on the US’s otherwise centralized thuggery of a government. We consider the original purpose of the Constitution of the US and the complete abandonment of consensual ratification that has the country in a state of arrested development. Later, Connor gives an overview of his book, “Feardom,” underscoring how politicians use fear as a weapon through calculated and statistically driven efforts designed to change societal behaviors. To round things off, we dig into governmental debacles such as race relations policies, the war on drugs, the criminal justice system, and taxes.
