As the title reads: Dr. Block speaks about deontological and consequentialist ethics.¬†Block claims that there are no positive obligations under libertarian theory and he applies that to raising children. Several different views from top libertarian thinkers are discussed in this terrific video.¬†Murray Rothbard’s view on the obligation or lack there of when it comes to one’s children is interpreted by the interviewer, Daniel and Block himself. Block explains where he disagrees with his friend Dr. Stephan Kinsella on relevant issues. Daniel, presents Stefan Molyneux’s argument against evictionism and Block offers his rebuttal of which he has written about in the past. Molyneux’s argument is on that involves a tornado and crucially timed warnings to the natural disaster, listen in and hear Block’s rebuttal in which he uses an airplane scenario. There is much more thought provoking topics that appear throughout this lengthy but substance dense video.
