Once Aryan Skynet Goes Live It Doesn't Matter Who Pulled The Switch
What connects Emma Goldman, Ayn Rand, Barry Goldwater, and hardcore punk? Check out the colorful documentary Anarchism in America and watch as the Ashkenazim creep out of the woodwork. Celebrity interviewees include radical theorist and historian Murray Bookchin, conservative-turned-hippie libertarian Karl Hess, and the lads from the California punk group the Dead Kennedys. Filmed in 1981 by Steven Fischler and Joel Sucher – with, ironically enough, a grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities – Anarchism in America serves as a sympathetic snapshot of the various radical anti-state philosophies current at the time, something of a left-libertarian counterpart to its ideological cousin, Milton Friedman’s epic documentary series Free to Choose, which – again, somewhat ironically – had aired on PBS in 1980.
