Released in 1984, Ghostbusters quickly became one of most successful comedies in film history.
In many ways, the movie was perfectly in synch with the Reagan Revolution's valorization of business and demonization of government. Ghostbusters begins with a team of paranormal investigators getting kicked out of Columbia University and starting a ghost-hunting business. But even though New York is literally being invaded by evil spirits, the real villain of the movie is not the otherwordly demon Gozer but an Environmental Protection Agency bureaucrat named Walter Peck, who shuts down their operation and puts the city at risk. Hilarity ensues.
Well, what do you think? How far off the mark are we? What great libertarian movies would you add to the list? Let us know in the comments.
