Great If You're a Libertarian

ALERT! Cato is a non-profit public policy foundation which promotes the ideas of libertarian ideals--free markets, limited government, and peace.

If you subscribe to these ideas or if you have an interest in learning more, then this subscription might be of interest. If you think businesses are inherently bad, or that the government needs to step in more often, you're probably not going to like this broadcast.

Some reviewers rate this subscription low because they don't like Cato's philosophy. I guess that's okay, but people should know that the program is very informative and non-confrontational. Though often labelled "right-wing," Cato is certainly not Republican--just look at their stances on the War on Drugs, the War in Iraq, and abortion issues.

My only objection is that the subscription only gives you a measly 1-hr. every month. Meanwhile, the government-subsidized NPR shows broadcast more often, giving better value. The debate continues...

Actual, intelligent discussion of current events

Yes, believe it or not, there is a refuge from the partisan rhetoric of the Democrats and Republicans. The Cato Institute is a libertarian think tank devoted to the proposition that the government should stay out of your bedroom and out of your wallet to the greatest extent possible. This is the notion on which our country was founded, even if modern politicians and pundits tend to forget that. I have found the discussions and lecture excerpts on Cato Audio to be both interesting and informative. The only drawback is that they leave me angry with both the Republicans and the Democrats. I think that if you listen to a few of these, you will agree that most Americans are actually Libertarians, even if they don't yet know it.
