Based on a suggestion by a listener and to highlight the recent anniversary of the atom bombs being dropped on Japan, we cover Barefoot Gen and also briefly contrast it with Grave of the Fireflies. Demanding unconditional surrender and using the pretense of invasion as political maneuvering while showing the destructive capacity now wielded to brewing adversaries, an entire generation of innocent civilians are murdered in cold blood with the wrong answer to the philosophical trolley problem. The movies both show the horror of war at home that is then amplified at the dawn of the nuclear age. Show notes and more at: http://www.actualanarchy.com/89 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)
