Reliving the 1997 classic Australian comedy, ‘The Castle’: Podcast episode 21 released

Can money buy power? Can corporations oppress the little guy in a free market? The answers are unclear if we don’t separate the forces at play in a mixed economy.

The 1997 classic Australian comedy, ‘The Castle’ offers a unique opportunity for defenders of freedom, capitalism, and individual rights to expose what really makes villains such as the big, bad Barlow Group possible. (Hint: It isn’t money.)

In this episode, Matthew unpacks the mixture of freedom and statism to make the issue clear, and by exploiting the fact that the movie appeals to people across the whole political spectrum, we might discover a principle we can all get behind.

He also highlights and celebrates the pure optimism and appreciation of Darryl Kerrigan, the main protagonist of the story.
