We explore some cinematic history covering a few iterations of the Magnificent Seven and Seven Samurai story that starts out fairly libertarian, but each iteration gets less and less so. We talk a bit about private law, non-state justice systems, the myth of the robber barons and how the west wasn’t actually so wild. We’ve never worked for everything before, but $20 is a lot right now. Plenty to chew on in this episode, so we hope you do enjoy it. Show notes: http://www.actualanarchy.com/95 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)
