Taking Responsibility

Thanks to a new Facebook friend who had the Nathaniel Branden video displayed below on his own website, I would like to make it available here as well. Interviewed by Mark Selzer of The Libertarian Alternative, Branden covers the topic "Taking Responsibility" in an entertaining and educational fashion. Longtime readers know that I have written often that with liberty comes responsibility and that I believe far too few of us step up to the plate and take responsibility for our actions. This is an excellent video and it is well worth an investment of a few minutes of your time.


  1. I love Branden's stuff. His books and his insights are priceless.

  2. You know, that very day, I went to his website and read and decided not only was he brilliant and insightful, but that I could use his help sorting out a few things.
    I then went out and obtained one of his books, and I feel on the verge of making profound changes in my life. I can't thank you enough for posting this video.

  3. You're welcome, phlegmfatale. There is a book that I have mentioned a time or two called "How To Find Freedom in an Unfree World," by Harry Browne. I sense that it might be a helpful source as well, if you haven't already read it. I don't know if it is still in print, but a Google search would nail it down pretty quickly.

    Good luck in your quest!

  4. Thanks for the recommendation - I'll keep my eyes peeled for it!
