We compare and contrast Disney/Pixar’s Ratatouille and Morgan Spurlock’s Rats from a non-aggression principled stance. Do not watch the Spurlock movie before the Pixar movie – as it changes the whole thing. Are sentient rats capable of understanding property rights; can they steal? Are we justified in setting traps or shooting them? We discuss these topics and more on this episode. Enjoy!

Presented by Read Rothbard:
Read Rothbard is comprised of a small group of voluntaryists who are fans of Murray N. Rothbard. We curate content on the www.ReadRothbard.com site including books, lectures, articles, speeches, and we make a weekly podcast based on his free-market approach to economics. Our focus is on education and how advancement in technology improves the living standards of the average person.
The Read Rothbard Podcast is all about Maximum Freedom. We look at movies and current events from a Rothbardian Anarchist perspective. If it’s voluntary, we’re cool with it. If it’s not, then it violated the Non-Aggression Principle and Property Rights – the core tenants of Libertarian Theory – and hence – human freedom.
