I’m a big advocate for the suspension of politics and philosophy during down time. What does that mean? It means I watch shows like NCIS, Law and Order, and Criminal Minds. I listen to bands like Pearl Jam, Dave Matthews Band, etc. And I do so unapologetically. Most of the time, you’ll hear me tell budding libertarians to allow themselves to avoid the type of purism that would eliminate such entertainment from their lives.
But every now and then, a particularly flagrant example of statist propaganda in popular entertainment presents itself. This week I experienced such an occurrence and I simply can’t let it go unnoticed.
