Gold Report interviews Doug Casey on Ron Paul & the price of freedom

Born Libertarian: Doug Casey on Ron Paul and the Price of Freedom - The Gold Report,

October 14, 2013 - "The Gold Report (TGR): Doug, we are at your conference in Tucson, Arizona, the day after former Congressman and presidential candidate Dr. Ron Paul gave the keynote speech to a sold-out crowd. How did you two first meet?

"Doug Casey: It was about 30 years ago. Ron used to attend my Eris Society — named after the Greek goddess of discord — meetings in Aspen, Colorado. Everyone from Sonny Barger of the Hells Angels motorcycle club to Burt Rutan, inventor of SpaceShipOne, would meet to discuss ideas.

"TGR: In those 30 years, have Ron Paul's ideas changed much? DC: Ron believes he was born a libertarian. He's right.... Ron and I, and many others, have moved beyond gut libertarianism to a structured, intellectual libertarianism....

TGR: One of the things Ron Paul mentioned last night is that a true libertarian advocates for the freedom of everyone to do what he or she wants as long as it's not hurting someone else. This includes people who don't agree with your views.

"DC: Exactly. As opposed to busybodies who want to tell everybody else what to do. They think they know best and are perfectly willing to put a gun to your head to make sure that you do what they think is right."
