  • As of last night, I have now finally seen all the Star Wars movies. And I still don’t quite grasp the politics of this saga. Between the two trilogies, when I watched an episode of Clone Wars with my 7yo son, I was confused that the apparent good guys were fighting evil separatists when our heroes were clearly the breakaway rebels in the first trilogy (episodes 4–6). I asked @bobmurphy for help on Facebook, but he said I needed to see all the movies first. Now I have. Would anyone like to explain? Or maybe just point me to some good libertarian writing on the political background/message/assumptions of this story? I appreciate your help. BK

I was honored to compose the score for this documentary along with my writing partner Ryan Rapsys.  (please check out our new website The film premiered at Doc NYC in November and I’m sure it will be available for viewing in the near future. I’ll make sure to post when it becomes available for public consumption.

  • There seems to be some increase within certain libertarian circles towards political correctness.  Virtually everything (but not every single thing) that is politically correct in any culture is flat wrong everywhere.
