Culture is upstream of politics, and while libertarians are great at compiling spreadsheets and writing white papers, they’re a little bit behind when it comes to making compelling art that communicates the benefits of a free society. Pho Chan, who records as the Pholosopher, and producer Jack Lloyd are trying to change that. At the 2023 Porcupine Freedom Festival in New Hampshire, they spoke with Matt Kibbe about how they are using rap music, memes, skits, comics, and other forms of multimedia entertainment to spread their ideas of voluntary cooperation, ethical behavior, and consent culture.
