We are going to review this movie with extreme prejudice. When this came up as an idea back in February, I didn't mean Apocalypse Right Now. Also, as some of the best centrally-planned plans almost always fall through, so do the occasional individual plans. But fear not, we have a solid Plan B for a guest who has been on with us multiple times and will be sure to delight. Jon Reed returns to the show to talk about the pains taken during the production of this masterpiece and we get into how that helps make it an even better film. We also discuss the ridiculous approach to the war and how Kurtz and Willard both saw the nature of the problem. Join us next week as we stir the great Patrick MacFarlane of Liberty Weekly out of his winter hibernation and have him on to discuss "American Psycho". Show notes: http://www.actualanarchy.com/182 Presented by www.ActualAnarchy.com 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. SUBSCRIBE, RATE AND REVIEW ON APPLE PODCASTS (or iTUNES)
