We talk economic freedom and the future of SA with Mpiyakhe Dhlamini!

We unpack the recently released Economic Freedom of the World Report of 2019 by the Free Market Foundation.

South Africa fell 54 places in World Freedom Index in just 19 years, and with proposed policies like Expropriation Without Compensation, Prescribed Assets and the National Health Insurance, it would seem South Africa is headed in the decline direction of countries like the DRC, Angola and Venezuela.

What policies are needed to defend our life, liberty and property-rights?

Crime Stats 2018/2019: Are you any safer today than a year ago?

Join our discussion as Big Daddy Liberty talks to IRR analysts, Hermann Pretorius (@Meneer_Mann) and Marius Roodt (@MariusCRoodt) about the latest crime statistics.

We breakdown the trends, and look at the crime catagories by how the affect you life, liberty & property-rights!

Are you safe as a South African?

Are the police doing what they are supposed to?

What can YOU do to fight back against the high crime rates in South Africa?

On citizen gun-rights and the failure of SAPS to police with consent!

I chat to gun rights activist and all-round good guy, Gideon Joubert, better known as Paratus on social media.

We look at the importance of having an armed citizenry, and discuss the complete breakdown of law and order in South Africa under a police force that fails the 'Peelian Principle' (consent of the policed).

What is your view on gun-rights? Do you own a firearm?

National Health Insurance: ANC-govt will nationalize medical care and create the Eskom of healthcare!

I am in conversation with one half of the Renegade Report Podcast, Roman Cabanac, about the recently announced introduction of the National Health Insurance Bill.

This NHI Bill is nothing short of an attempt to nationalize healthcare provision in South Africa, and through the establishment of the NHI Fund, set up a cash-hungry behemoth of a bureaucracy, that'll rival Eskom.

Fight against this Bill! Join the IRR campaign against it, visit, and click on the Stop NHI tab.

Ramaphosa's advisers endorse EWC, and unemployment hits 29% in SA! | Liberty & Friends

In this third episode of Liberty & Friends I am joined by special guest and cartoonist, JERM, along with the IRR's, Frans Cronje and Gabriel Crouse.

We discuss the appalling recommendations of the Presidential Advisory Panel on Land Reform & Agriculture which endorse EWC and devise insidious ways of eroding property-rights.

We also talk about the sinking SA economy. The major casualties right now are the now record number of unemployed people, sitting at 29%!

The insistence on following statist socialist ideology is killing South African society and its economy.

Does the LGBTQ community enjoy the same freedoms & rights as the rest of society? | Liberty & Friends

Welcome to Liberty & Friends, a product of The Big Liberty Show and hosted by Big Daddy Liberty.

In this second episode we talk all things LGBTQ with IRR researcher & analyst, Gerrie van Heerden. Gerrie has conducted research and written extensively about the plight of the LGBTQ communities in South Africa and the rest of Africa. Are we building the sort of free societies in Africa that protect the liberty and rights of minorities such as gays and lesbians?

Join us in this conversation, as we discuss why a free society ought to protect the rights of all citizens, and encourage toleration and liberty.

Thanks to the FNF South Africa for supporting this episode.

Why is our diplomatic corp and our embassies such a mess? | Liberty & Friends

Welcome to the first episode of Liberty & Friends, a product of The Big Liberty Show and hosted by Big Daddy Liberty.

In this episode we look at South Africa's foreign policy and our diplomatic corp. Given the recent bad behaviour and racism of Zindzi Mandela and allegations of wrong-doing against Bruce Koloane, are our foreign embassy missions across the world a dumping ground for crooked ANC cadres?

Are we getting bang for our buck with the just over 100 embassies we have across the world?

Join me in discussion with IRR analyst and writer, Terence Corrigan, as we look into these issues and more.
