We stare at the brink of destruction and analyze a movie that was so good, they made it twice. We're talking about "The Day the Earth Stood Still" with special guest, Dr. Dennis Foster. The original 1951 version about the Cold War where an alien emissary gives a dramatic demonstration of power when he attempts to warn mankind about the folly of atomic experimentation. In the remake Watermelon one they made Heinz-57 years later in 2008 starring Neo from the Matrix, renowned scientist Dr. Helen Benson finds herself face to face with an alien called Klaatu, who travels across the universe to warn of an impending global crisis. Join us next week as we gear up for a Memorial Day episode on Rambo: First Blood. Show notes to be posted at: http://www.actualanarchy.com/129 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)
