South Park and the Free Market

As I’ve mentionedbefore, a lot of work being done these days on intersection of philosophy and popular culture is being done by libertarians and conservatives. It’s not all left-wing postmodernist nihilism. L&P readers might be familiar with the work of Paul Cantor, who often tries to incorporate insights from Austrian analysis into his work on both high and pop culture. He has an essay in the new book South Park and Philosophy, in which he uses the show to discuss the nature of the free market. (Cantor has also written on The Simpsons, among other things.)
