We go back to the Batman well and bring an old friend along as a guest to discuss Batman: Dark Knight Returns. 10 years after retiring, Gotham has descended further and further into crime and chaos as the corrupt police department is failing at the job it prevents others from providing. Batman comes out of retirement to do battle various enemies, both old and new, for the last time. This Frank Miller work was a very strong comic series that was faithfully created as an animated feature with some very deep themes worthy of discussion. Join us as we slice and dice on this one. Show notes: http://www.actualanarchy.com/96 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)
