The Best Debate in the Universe - We only touched on this issue of net neutrality in the past, so we decided to give it a proper, full-episode debate about net neutrality. Does the other side make a good case? The debate this week: IS NET NEUTRALITY NECESSARY?
Monday December 4th 2017
Debate starts at 2:21. We're joined by two guests this week, James Breakwell, author of Only Dead on the Inside and Kirk Wilcox. We had a first-ever 2-on-2 debate on The Best Debate. Even though we touched on the topic of "net neutrality" previously, it's an important enough topic to warrant its own full episode and this was a very thorough and robust debate. We even stumbled upon an argument that may stump every "property-rights" absolutist: the Donut Property Theory! Really worth listening to near the end of the episode. Watch the video version here at Madcast Media Network YouTube channel:

Rucka makes an impassioned argument for property rights this episode, but seems genuinely stumped with the "donut property" argument. The theme of donuts shows up several times in this episode, when I offer to build a brick wall in front of Kirk's hypothetical donut shop. Want his glazed donuts? Tough shit! You can't get around my property to get to it.

Finally we cover a news story about a lobster with a Pepsi "tattoo" and an Amazon delivery person taking a dump on someone's driveway. Two packages for the price of one and they still complained? Some people are hard to please.
