Milton Friedman is not considered a “pure” libertarian by many. Lots of people complain when I reference him, but I think he is one of the best libertarian “gateway drugs” out there – and has done more practical things to advance pro-freedom principles than anyone else. You just need to place him in the right context:
I’ve got a couple of flicks to tell you about that are rolling around in my head at the moment:
There’s a fictional short film comp coming up in March, so the first film I want to make over the next couple of weeks has a working title of Cyberspace. It’s about an MIT scientist who develops a small ship that he hopes to beam into the world wide web and destroy a dangerous virus that’s been crippling the internet.
I’m not one for sci-fi usually, but it gives me the great excuse to make another movie with fast ships, action and explosions. Some filmmaking friends of mine have heard the details of what I want to do, and said they were concerned that I might not be able to pull it off. They may well be very right, but that just encourges me to do it even more.
The other isn’t as timely, but certainly something I’d love to do. I want to make a film about Milton Friedman, the late great Nobel prize-winning economist. Details are sketchy at present, but I’ll let you know more as and when!
And as always, drop me an email if you have any cool ideas or comments!
