The boys from Liberty Weekly join us to talk about Rogue One a Star Wars story. Patrick from that site wrote a great article on this movie earlier this year, so it was a great fit to have the two of them join us for this one.

Robert and I analyze popular movies from a Rothbardian/AnarchoCapitalist perspective.

We use movies as a starting point for people who may not be familiar with this way of thinking. Discussion of the plot and decisions that characters make in relation to morality and violations of the non-aggression principle are our bread and butter.

We also will highlight and discuss any themes or lessons from Austrian Economics that we can glean from the film.

The point is to show what anarchy actually is with instances that are presented in film.

We publish at least once per week; and occasionally will do specials surrounding holidays or events (elections/olympics) and have guests.

We join forces with Jon Reed from Libertarianism For Normal People to discuss the Martin Scorsese biopic of Howard Hughes, the Aviator.  It's a long movie and so we focus on some key points and overall themes in our discussion. The way of the future.

Just Robert and me, just me and Robert on this one, talking about the 2016 home-invasion thriller Don't Breathe.  Plenty of moral ambiguity and twists and turns in this one.  It's almost like this movie was made for this podcast.  We sink in for almost as long as the movie on some pretty tough questions.  This is a fun episode.

The Googz:

"Rocky (Jane Levy), Alex and Money are three Detroit thieves who get their kicks by breaking into the houses of wealthy people. Money gets word about a blind veteran who won a major cash settlement following the death of his only child. Figuring he's an easy target, the trio invades the man's secluded home in an abandoned neighborhood. Finding themselves trapped inside, the young intruders must fight for their lives after making a shocking discovery about their supposedly helpless victim."

Dumb and Dumber on the Actual Anarchy Podcast. We bring on contributor Scott Albright to discuss this film from a Rothbardian and Bastiatian perspective. At first glance, one might think a comedy with Jim Carrey lighting farts on fire might not have much to discuss in the way of libertarianism and economics, but that would be incorrect my friends. We go just over an hour discussing this classed from the 90's that inspired so many terrible sequels.

You can find Scott's work on this site, as well as the Front Range Voluntaryist.

We bring on Adam Kokesh to talk Idiocracy for the 4th of Juyly (the original Secession Day) Special of the Actual Anarchy Podcast.  From Mike Judge, one of the creative minds behind Beavis and Butt-Head, King of the Hill, and Office Space, comes an outrageous sci-fi comedy that'll make you think twice about the future of mankind. Meet Joe Bowers (Luke Wilson). He's not the sharpest tool in the shed. But when a government hibernation experiment goes awry, Bowers awakens in the far-flung future, he is now the smartest man alive.

Here is the Google Info:

In 2005, average in every way private Joe Bowers (Luke Wilson) is selected to take part in a secret military experiment to put him in hibernation for a year along with a woman named Rita (Maya Rudolph). The slumbering duo is forgotten when the base they are stored on is closed down and are left in stasis until 2505. When they finally wake up, they discover the average intelligence of humans has decreased so much that Joe is now the smartest man in the world.

Adam was a great guest, and is one of our heroes, so we were very happy to have him on.  Please do check out the fine work he is doing over at the Freedom Line and get a free copy of his book "Freedom"!

We're back at it again with our guest all the way from Adelaide.  Shahin returns to discuss the back-half of the Christopher Nolan meat in the Batman trilogy sandwich, the Dark Knight.

The second half of the Batman film, the Dark Knight starring Christian Bale and Heath Ledger. Prompted by the recent death of Adam West who played the campy 60's version of Batman, we take on this beast of a film.

Considered by many to be one of the greatest comic book film adaptations ever (which might be expected when Christopher Nolan is at the helm). We bring on a special guest Shahin Mohammadi from Adelaide, Australia to go at it.

Happy Father's Day! With many movies to choose from, we were happy to choose one that is a favorite of our guest: Finding Nemo. The story of one father's quest to save his last-surviving child. He overcomes the trauma of losing his wife and most of his other kids to travel thousands of miles from home encountering killer sharks, war refuse mines, surfer turtles dude-bruh, stinging jellyfish (don't tase me bro!), and a forgetful friend.

Here is the Google info:

Marlin (Albert Brooks), a clown fish, is overly cautious with his son, Nemo (Alexander Gould), who has a foreshortened fin. When Nemo swims too close to the surface to prove himself, he is caught by a diver, and horrified Marlin must set out to find him. A blue reef fish named Dory (Ellen DeGeneres) -- who has a really short memory -- joins Marlin and complicates the encounters with sharks, jellyfish, and a host of ocean dangers. Meanwhile, Nemo plots his escape from a dentist's fish tank.

Let's talk Tombstone and the not so wild west. What else is wrong about the opening narration by Robert Mitchum? Kurt Russell is a libertarian! Anybody catch the "Equal Pay for Equal Work" signage? Disequlibrium of violence (bad guys kill, no big deal; good guy kills one and is all sentimental - at first). Great quotes in this movie - an example of "parts greater than the whole" movie.

Our friend Kenny the Wizard from the Wizardly Wisdom Podcast and LibertarianNerds.com joins us for a raucous and weaving discussion about many things related to (and not even related) to this now classic Western.

You can check out more of Kenny's works here:

www.LibertarianNerds.com

And now some background on Tombstone from the Googs:

Wyatt Earp (Kurt Russell) and his brothers, Morgan (Bill Paxton) and Virgil (Sam Elliott), have left their gunslinger ways behind them to settle down and start a business in the town of Tombstone, Ariz. While they aren't looking to find trouble, trouble soon finds them when they become targets of the ruthless Cowboy gang. Now, together with Wyatt's best friend, Doc Holliday (Val Kilmer), the brothers pick up their guns once more to restore order to a lawless land.

take it with you


Iphone_trans Listening to podcasts on your mobile devices is extremely convenient -- and it's what makes the podcasting medium so powerful.

You can take your favorite shows and mixes with you anywhere, but to do so requires some quick and simple steps.

Let's walk you through that process together.
step 1:


Click the "Subscribe With iTunes" link in the page's sidebar:

Subscribe_with_itunes

This will require that you have the iTunes software on your computer.

(You can download iTunes here.)
step 2:
Itunes_ss

Now that you've subscribed to the podcast on iTunes, the feed will display in your "Podcasts" section on the left navigation bar.

Click there and you'll see the show displayed in the iTunes browser.

You can "get all" to download all available episodes or just individual episodes.
step 3:


Plug your mobile device (iPhone, iPad, iPod) into your computer with the Dock Connector cable, and click the device in iTunes's left navigation bar.

Itunes_ss2

Once you have your device highlighted, click "Podcasts" in the top navigation bar and sync the podcasts you want on your device. Click "apply" and the episodes you have downloaded on your iTunes software will sync with your device.
that's it!

The beauty of this process is that now, every new episode of your subscribed podcasts will automatically sync to your device every time you plug it in and open iTunes. You can now take your favorite shows with you everywhere you go.

Enjoy!
done!
