In this new On Demand series professors Peter Jaworski, Aeon Skoble and Daniel D’Amico will take you on a journey into the world of government regulation of all things vices. You’ll explore how government deregulation of craft beers has helped reshape the entire industry and how alcohol laws in Virginia actually do the opposite of what they were intended! On the cigarette front the series will demonstrate the folly of anti-smoking laws and how they curb individual freedom.
This is one of our newer On Demand programs so hurry to be one of the first people who completes it. By the time you’re done you’ll know the ins and outs of all things vices as they relate to state power. For some additional reading be sure to check out Lysander Spooner’s essay (PDF),”Vices Are Not Crimes“.
