Brenton Christopher Lengel is a screenwriter, playwright and Ringo Award-nominated comic creator who found his artistic voice along the windswept peaks of the northern Appalachians. Shortly thereafter cutting his literary teeth in the NYC underground. His body of work is broad-based and eclectic but he is best known for “North to Maine,” the first play ever written about the Appalachian trail, his Ringo Award-nominated comic series “Snow White Zombie Apocalypse,” and “Afterall,” his urban fantasy collaboration with Rogue, lead singer of the chart-topping goth/electropop band The Crüxshadows. Today, we sit down to discuss the roots of American anarcho-capitalism in the free market fundamentalism that emerged after World War II. Among other things, we also discuss the constant threat of liberal recuperation of movements, the Left’s mythology of incompetence surrounding Occupy Wall Street, and cool comic book stuff!
