About Read Rothbard - Actual Anarchy - Last Nighters

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).


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

We just upgrayyedd-ed to a Broadcaster plan for a double-dose of the pimpin' ( and additional storage space and unlimited bandwidth) on the show.  We were running low on space and we now have plenty of room to grow AND to share our new and improved audio!  

We are on mic number 5! (A dynamic mic this time).  The studio has been updated with sound conditioning panels, noise dampening curtains, and new methods of recording and editing are being implemented.  Also, with the additional storage space, we will be able to increase the bit rate of the audio files to showcase the new audio improvements.

Reaching $50 per month will help us cover this cost!
