"For the most part, we have a large enough cohort of the electorate that does not really want freedom, because that's risky. What we want is safety and security and uninterrupted cable or internet service and the fulfillment of our own hedonistic desires... and that's a wole different thing than someone yearning to be free." -- Don Williams
Brian and Don get together again to chat about voting, ethics, conscience and Thomas Sowell, among other things.
Don Williams is a conservator, educator, scholar and all-around inquisitive guy, having worked on some of the most interesting objects and historic buildings in our nation's public and private collections. He has developed, managed and presented educational programming on an array of subjects in the fields of conservation, woodworking and wood finishing, and has published and presented scholarly research on subjects like ancient coating materials and craft techniques, and created pioneering uses for traditional and modern materials, including some of his own invention.
In his spare time he passionately pursues his varied interests, including economics, metal casting, collecting obscure books and tools, Japanese gardening and faith, all of which usually occur against a backdrop of jazz or podcast lectures on various arcane topics.
