An Interview With Scott Horton: Bill Hicks, The War On Drugs & Scott's Anti War Journey

In this interview with Scott Horton, we talk about Bill Hicks, the war on drugs, world government, Joe Biden, Iraq and Scott's journey to his current path. As Scott's main focus is usually foreign policy, I thought it would be great to get his thoughts on some other topics. Unsurprisingly, foreign policy still came up in certain segments, nevertheless, the majority of the interview was not focused on foreign policy. I hope you enjoyed the interview.
