We hang on to the last vestiges of my youth as I turn 40 and talk about a children’s movie with my friend since childhood, and co-host, Robert.
WALL-E is a charming story of a lonely robot who gains sentience and becomes lonely; but there’s also some ridiculous economic fallacies and a few strong propagandistic messages being pushed.
(On our new “Out of 10.0 Scale”)
Robert gives it a 7.2
Daniel drops a 9.0
We hope you enjoy this one!
WALL-E, short for Waste Allocation Load Lifter Earth-class, is the last robot left on Earth. He spends his days tidying up the planet, one piece of garbage at a time. But during 700 years, WALL-E has developed a personality, and he’s more than a little lonely. Then he spots EVE, a sleek and shapely probe sent back to Earth on a scanning mission. Smitten WALL-E embarks on his greatest adventure yet when he follows EVE across the galaxy.

There is a fair amount of overlap with Idiocracy that came out a few years before this. We had the great Adam Kokesh as your guest for that movie, which you can find below:
We discussed the “Best Friends Policy” being advocated for schools. Here is the Tucker Carlson interview with one of the advocates for the policy:

Thank you for joining us on this episode of the Actual Anarchy Podcast!
The Actual Anarchy Podcast is all about Maximum Freedom.
Robert and I analyze popular movies from a Rothbardian/Anarcho-Capitalist 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.
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 new episodes on Sunday just in time for your Monday commute; and occasionally will do specials surrounding holidays or events (elections/olympics).
For our show where we talk about movies from a Rothbardian/Anarcho-Capitalist perspective, we often watch them on our various devices via Netflix, Amazon Prime or on VUDU (which lets you redeem UV content as well). The VUDU one is nice because once it is in there, you know it will still be there a few months later:
Actual Anarchy, an anarchy unlike what the average idiot thinks it would be. Anarchy means no rulers, not no rules. The non-aggression principle and a respect of property rights are what makes it go.
We host a podcast where we take pop culture movies and showcase moments or scenes or themes throughout that are literally actual examples of anarchy.
Any place, around the world, there are always examples of Actual Anarchy all about you. Sometimes you just have to sit back and take a look. It’s easy once they’ve been pointed out a few times.
Actual Anarchy is real world examples of anarchy in action.
Movies, Shows, Books, News, etc… we host all sorts of content on the site from a bevy of writers enthusiastic for one goal: human freedom
