Lessons in Liberty

Rafi Farber, the End Game Investor, teaches on freedom and liberty from the Bible. These are lessons really worth listening to.

New Lessons in Liberty covers Genesis 12-17 on Abraham’s escape from a totalitarian dictatorship in Babylonia, to the relatively small government land of Canaan, consisting of small city-states. Abraham’s character, and what he had to do to separate from power and authority completely. 

Joseph is the quintessential dangerous political mastermind that you never want in charge of anything. He must be subordinated to the true leader, his brother Judah, and never given full reign. This is why, in Jewish lore, there are two Messiahs (leaders). One is Mashiach ben Yosef (Messiah from Joseph) and the other Mashiach ben David (Messiah from Judah/David). At the end of days, Mashiach ben David kills Mashiach ben Yosef in an epic showdown. 

Rafi talks about Israelite civil wars and how they tend to drag the world into conflict, as in the case of the war between Joseph and Judah that dragged Egypt  – the superpower of the time  – into it. 

I personally recommend you subscribe as a Patron on Rafi’s Patreon get Biblical commentary on economics, monetary policy and government.
