Are you not entertained? Is that not why you are here? We get in the Russell Crowe, Oscar-winning epic, Gladiator. The general who became a slave. A slave who became a gladiator. A gladiator who defied an emperor. We’re seriously vexed about the false dichotomy between the two modes of rulership being fought over here. This is a sweeping movie that elicits a fun discussion. If you like bread and circuses, you’ll be sure to enjoy this one. Show notes: http://www.actualanarchy.com/88 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)
