"We're all standing in front of this mountain and it's called 'government' and we don't know what to do with it," says Jeffrey Tucker, who's the executive editor of Laissez Faire Books and a former vice president at the Ludwig von Mises Institute. "But some very creative people in the private sector have figured how to dig underneath it, go around it, scale it with special new tools, and that's how I think of digital media."
Reason magazine's Matt Welch sat down with Tucker at FreedomFest 2012 to discuss his new book, No More Gatekeepers: How to Create Your Own Civilization in the Digital Age, which looks at how digital media empowers individuals and subverts government power.
Held each July in Las Vegas, FreedomFest is attended by around 2,000 limited-government enthusiasts and libertarians a year. Reason TV spoke with over two dozen speakers and attendees. To see a complete playlist of interviews from FreedomFest 2012, go here now:
