Dickens' "A Christmas Carol" - FLNWO #22

12/15/20142 Comments

On this edition of Film, Literature and the New World Order we are joined by Roderick Long of the Austro-Athenian Empire blog to discuss Charles Dickens' classic, "A Christmas Carol." Is Ebeneezer Scrooge a model of the modern libertarian, or is this image a distortion of what it means to be libertarian? Join us for this very philosophical examination of the ghosts of Christmas past, present and future.

    Hi James, great FLNWO. Here is a request: I’m very much hoping you will do a show on Foxcatcher. Steve Carrel does a great John du Pont.

    Just to say a belated “thank you” for this episode. I was ignorant of the attempts to label Scrooge as a libertarian. Thanks for this new twist (sorry) on an old tale.
