I just got back from watching The Lone Ranger. Considering all the bad reviews it's received, I thought the movie was going to suck, but it turned out to be awesome. It started a little slow, and there were a few unnecessary gross-out moments (like the Ranger being pulled through horse poo), but overall, it had some hilarious comedy and great action scenes, including the epic train scene at the end--complete with the Lone Ranger's theme!

There were two quotes during the movie which, as a libertarian, really struck me as awesome.

The first one was at the beginning of the movie. The character that would become the Lone Ranger is riding a train full of Presbyterians. One of them invites him to pray. "Much obliged," he tells her before lifting up a copy of John Locke's Two Treatises of Government, "But this here's my Bible." I'm not sure if it's cool that a movie referenced John Locke, or sad that this is probably the only chance many are going to hear about Locke.

The second quote comes near the end when the Lone Ranger discovers the intentions of the villain, a railroad tycoon who had the Comanche tribe exterminated by the Calvary in order to build a railway across their land. "If that man represents the law," the Lone Ranger says, "then I much rather be an outlaw." I don't know much about the original Lone Ranger, but if he's anything like the Lone Ranger in the movie, he very well could have been one of the first anarchists. (You know, aside from Robin Hood.)

Oh people hear about Locke all the time. but only the social contract and how it justifies governments in every imaginable way.

Which wasn't at all what Locke said.

"First they came for the blacks, and I spoke up because it was wrong, even though I'm not black.

Then they came for the gays, and I spoke up, even though I'm not gay.

Then they came for the Muslims, and I spoke up, because it was wrong, even though I'm an atheist.

When they came for illegal aliens, I spoke up, even though I'm a legal immigrant.

Then they came for the pornographers, rebels and dissenters and their speech and flag burning, and I spoke up, because rights are not only for the establishment.

Then they came for the gun owners, and you liberal shitbags threw me under the bus, even though I'd done nothing wrong.  So when they come to put you on the train, you can fucking choke and die."

Michael Williamson

Great! Reminds me of this one:

Which also kinda reminds me of this one (epic win):
