Ep. 327- Lie #2: The Needs of the Collective Outweigh the Needs of the Individual
In his series of final episodes, Caleb breaks down the biggest lies that the left tells at the fundamental level. In this episode, he takes on a lie that is the underpinning of most of the left's political stances, that the needs of people at large are more important than individual liberties. Caleb explains why holding individual liberties as sacred and inalienable is not only good for individual people, but society at large.
