Episode 172 - Edge of Darkness (1:11:44)

Just in case there wasn't enough toxic masculinity last week, we are going to up the dose tonight as we discuss the "Edge of Darkness" with the Professional Asshole. When the only daughter of a Boston homicide detective, Thomas Craven (Mel Gibson), is shot on his doorstep, everyone assumes that he was the intended target. Then evidence suggests otherwise, and Craven sets out to find her killer and, in the process, uncovers her secret life, corporate coverups, government collusion, and murder. Mel Gibson plays the same role he often plays as an aggrieved man seeking justice for something done wrong to a family member. The old man's still got it in this one that marks his return to acting after a bit of an unplanned hiatus. We’ll talk about whistle-blowers, trusting the politicians and the false flags on this one - it gets a little spicy, but nothing our audience can't handle. Join us next week, if we're still around, to talk about another virus and the panic that ensued from it when we talk about HIV and AIDS form its early days with returning guest, Jon Reed and his movie selection, "And the Band Played On:. Show notes: Presented by 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)
