Great Documentary Highly Recommend
12 January 2021 | by johneric-60073See all my reviews

The strongest voices in true libertarian ideology are exhibited in this amazing documentary. It appears that critics of this title are just angry because the doc didn't reenforce their pre conceived notions.

Doc goes into the origin of the state and why it is immoral. some people don't like it when you argue with their "right" to other peoples possessions
