How the fossil fuel industry can stand up for itself
Listen now
Description
On this week’s Power Hour, Alex Epstein interviews one of his mentors, philosopher Onkar Ghate, on how the fossil fuel industry can fight for its freedom (far) more effectively by standing up for itself as a matter of justice. Some of the questions discussed include: - Why is it so powerful to fight on grounds of justice? - What should people in the fossil fuel industry consider unjust about the way they’re treated? - What kind of justice should the fossil fuel industry demand? - How should the fossil fuel industry act in the political world? - How should the fossil fuel industry interact with the media? - How should the fossil fuel industry act in the corporate/ESG world? - What can we learn from Ayn Rand’s success in winning people over to the cause of economic freedom?
