“Repo Man” was one of the seminal movies of our childhood. It was a lesson in business, markets, criminality and love set to a soundtrack of some of the best of the eighties punk and hardcore bands. The villains said things like “let’s go get sushi and not pay.” The heroes announced that “Credit is a sacred trust, it's what our free society is founded on. Do you think they give a damn about their bills in Russia? I said, do you think they give a damn about their bills in Russia?”
Today, Lew Rockwell reminds us again why repo men are heroes.
The repo man is one of the most unpopular people in society. But he serves an essential function of insuring the protection of property, which is the foundation of freedom.
