178 – Caleb Bond

Caleb Bond is a 21-year-old political commentator who describes himself as “conservative with a splash of libertarianism”. He writes a regular opinion column for the Adelaide Advertiser and regularly appears on Sky News.

Caleb kindly gave me his time a few weeks ago when I was in town for the Adelaide Fringe (before the PLAGUE HIT US ALL AND LOCKED US IN OUR HOUSES). We had a wide-ranging discussion about his experience of being a young conservative giving his opinions in public, the politicisation of youth, the Opinion Industrial Complex, Newscorp, the idea that people naturally become more conservative as they get older, socialism, free markets, FREEDOM and his stance on drugs.
