Thanks for sticking with us as we are fixin' to unpack a Turducken of an episode in preparation for the Thanksgiving week. This week's show is about the Tom Cruise movie, American Made, where the questions of legality somehow apply differently if you’re doing it for the “good” guys. This international escapade is based on the outrageous, true exploits of a hustler and pilot recruited to run one of the biggest covert operations in U.S. history. Based on an incredible true story of the CIA's biggest secret. Barry Seal is an impetuous and bored pilot who gets leveraged into doing more and more compromising activities for the CIA, the Contras in Nicaragua, and the Medellín Cartel down in Colombia. Once they get their foot in the door, there’s no way out for our hero. Join us next week as we’re gonna wreck it on “Wreck-it Ralph”! Show notes and more at: http://www.actualanarchy.com/103 As this is our Thanksgiving episode, we’d be remiss to not launch some deals in your direction. Black Friday Deals are at: http://www.actualanarchy.com/deals 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)
