Reason magazine, November issue (p.8), asked me to pick the three "best" and "most libertarian" movies of all time. (Exactly how do those values get weighed against each other? Like a good economist I sidestepped the aggregation issue and picked what I wanted to.) My third selection was:
Battle Royale: Why do so few people know this 2000 Japanese cult classic? The underlying political theme is that totalitarianism can end only in a war of all against all. This classic of resistance and liberation shows how tyrannous circumstances degrade mankind.
Can you guess my other selections, including my fourth dark horse pick?
