We dodge, dip, duck, dive and dodge our way through the mid-aughts classic, Dodgeball with our new friend Tyler. A group of misfits enter a Las Vegas dodgeball tournament in order to save their cherished local gym from the onslaught of a corporate health fitness chain. It's a bold strategy Cotton, but we're going to go balls deep into the NAP on this one.

Join us next week as we do an Easter-themed film with Stephen of AnarchoChristian and analyse the Mel Gibson movie, “the Passion of the Christ.”

Robert and I analyze popular movies from a Rothbardian/Anarcho-Capitalist 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 pop into biosphere II in the Dark-City dome from the Hunger Games to battle it out with the socialist, Jim Carrey, as we discuss his 1998 film "The Truman Show" directed by Peter Weir.

The movie is all about a utopian central-planner playing the role of a god (or a government for that matter) in the life of an unwitting subject of their hubris of control. There is plenty of philosophical meat to chew on in this one.

We get into a wordy discussion with our returning guest Mike C. who admirably filled in for our other friend, Olof the Anarcho-Viking, who had a scheduling conflict arise recently. We will be sure to have him on for a movie discussion in the near future.

Join us next week as we continue with our bold strategy and see it is pays off when we discuss
Dodgeball with one of our new friends, Tyler.

We're about to get crazy with the cheeze-wiz. Where is the curvature? This old-world idea has been resurrected in recent years, even some NBA players had made claims to it...that the Earth is flat.

In libertarian circles, it has been one more useful tool in the process of weeding out FB friends.

The flat-earthers feel like they are the correct and they are a marginalized group on the edge of science that follows the Gandhi “first they laugh at you.”

We shall discuss.

Join us next week as we continue our series on flat-earth for our episode on “The Truman Show” with returning guest, Olof the Anarcho-Viking.

We do an analysis of Dark City with special guest, Nicky P. of the Sounds Like Liberty Podcast, which can also be found on the Launch Pad Media. This was a pick by Nick and I'm glad he did. We'll find our way to Shell Beach with him on the barrelhead.

Separated from his wife Emma, amnesiac John Murdoch awakens alone in a strange hotel to learn he is wanted for a series of brutal killings. Things get weird when we are introduced to the Borg-like vampires who control the world above in tabernacle-choir fashion using their collective telekinesis to reshape the lives of others. Their quest to save their species by understanding what it means to be “human” creates a dystopian laboratory on a floating disc in space.

Join us next week for our episode on Behind the Curve, where we go to infinity and beyond on the Flat Earth documentary available now on Netflix.

The citizens of Fo Shan were prosperous and practiced kung fu as a hobby. Martial arts clubs opened up turning Fo Shan into a province renowned for martial arts. In 1937, the Japanese begin occupying China. The Japanese general challenges Chinese men to duels to prove the superiority of the Japanese, but Ip Man refuses to fight -- at first.

We are joined by a yout from the Liberty Weekly Podcast to discuss a lawyer-themed movie, My Cousin Vinny. That's right, Patrick MacFarlane is joining us to discuss another movie based on lawyering, and it should be a great time as we explore this Joe Pesci and Marisa Tomei flick that still holds up to this day.

Two naive youts traveling from New York City to college in California drive through Alabama and are erroneously arrested, and accused of homicide. Luckily, one of them has a cousin who's an attorney - Vincent Gambini, a previous auto repairman from Brooklyn who just passed his bar exam after his 6th attempt. Vinny's never been in court - or in Alabama - and when he lands with his leather-clad fashionista sweetheart, to attempt his first case, hilarity ensues - for him and the deep South!

Join us next week for our St. Patrick’s Day episode where we analyze a Chinese movie about Japanese occupation with a guy from Texas, the Anarchist Luke Tatum of the Culture of Peace Podcast.

We do an analysis of the Coen Brothers latest effort, the Ballad of Buster Scruggs. It's a series of 6-western themed vignettes with the requisite Coen-quirkiness. Each story has a few interesting points for the sake of our discussion...and what do you know, it comes out to enough for a show.

The Ballad of Buster Scruggs recounts the narrative of a sharp-shooting vocalist. In Near Algodones, a would be bank-robber gets his due to say the very least. Meal Ticket is a dreary story around two fatigued weary traveling entertainers. All Gold Canyon is an nearly one man show about a miner digging for gold, while a lady finds a startling level of adoration, alongside a portion of life's savage incongruity, on a wagon train over the prairies in The Gal Who Got Rattled. And lastly, spooky feels frequent The Mortal Remains as a Woman downpours judgment upon a diverse group of fellow carriage companions each with a different philosophy on life.

We throw about ten minutes at each story and this falls right into Robert’s wheelhouse. Join us for the lively discussion.

And next week, get ready, we’re doing the goofy classic My Cousin Vinny with our lawyer friend, and fellow podcaster, Patrick MacFarlane of the Liberty Weekly Podcast.

We don our super suits one more time and get back into the fray with Incredibles 2. Brad Bird is posing some questions here that we really enjoyed even though the movie plot has a few holes and never truly resolves.

Helen is called on to help bring Supers back, and Bob must juggle the daily heroics of home life. But when a new villain arises with a sinister plot, the Parrs meet the challenge together!

We'll be back next with the Ballad of Buster Scruggs, catch the newest Coen brothers film on Netflix and then give us a listen.

A tribute episode to our friend Lewis Liberman to discuss one of his favorite films, Terry Gilliam's noir steampunk, "Brazil".

It’s a movie about bureaucracy and totalitarian control with a populace of lobotomized passivity of consumerism. Mistaken identity due to a clerical error leads to government kidnapping and coverup intermixed with heroic dream sequences of saving himself from himself? Perhaps it's all in his head. And remember, information is prosperity. Don't suspect a friend. Report him.

There's a “happy” version where he awakes from the nightmare with the woman he thought had died. In the director’s version discussed in this episode, the dream is the happy version in his lobotomized state of sitting in a chair with a grin as he finally escapes the horror of his world.

The GoFundMe link for Lewis’s family can be reached at: http://www.actualanarchy.com/lewis

Here’s our receipt for your receipt: http://www.actualanarchy.com/116

We are joined by special guest, Alex Hay, to sing our way through the 2012 musical version of Victor Hugo’s, “Les Miserables”.

The film takes place in France during the early 19th century and tells the story of Jean Valjean who, while being hunted for decades by the ruthless policeman Javert after breaking parole, agrees to care for a factory worker's daughter. The story reaches resolution against the background of the June Rebellion.

It's a story of redemption for one character, and a relentless pursuit for another. There is love at first sight in the midst of a revolution that will never come.

Join us next week as we cover the movie "Brazil" in tribute to our friend, Lewis Liberman.
