Dave Rubin of The Rubin Report talks to Matt Kibbe (President and Chief Community Organizer at Free the People & host of Kibbe on Liberty on Blaze TV) about liberty in a time of lockdown. Matt Kibbe discusses the need to address complex problems like pandemics with decentralized individual responses. He shares how we rarely discuss the numerous failures of government whether it’s the supply of N95 masks, or disruptions to the food supply. He thinks that whenever you shut down an individual’s ability to innovate and instead rely on government central planning to make decisions you will increase the possibility of failure. Matt Kibbe talks about how even plans with the best intentions often yield horrible unintended consequences. He gives the example of states making the decision to have hospitals cancel their elective surgeries. This decision has had the unintended consequences of having cancer patients forego treatment, but also eliminating a main revenue stream for hospitals causing many hospitals to now possibly file for bankruptcy. This is another instance where politicians have made things worse by trying to make them better. Matt Kibbe also gives his honest evaluation of Trump from a libertarian perspective. He thinks that while he has been good on some issues like criminal justice reform he has been awful on issues like government surveillance, the deep state and government spending.
