The Popdust Files: dubstep, viral videos, wtf

There are two subjects guaranteed to start flame wars among a certain subset on Internet users: dubstep and libertarianism. There’s one genre—dubstep, in case you didn’t gather that already—guaranteed to be added to every audio file in existence eventually, like some sort of musical Rule 34. Therefore, libertarian dubstep exists. Specifically, it’s a guy named Porter Robinson, who has made dubstep out of clips from Murray Rothbard’s For a New Liberty: The Libertarian Manifesto, which is pretty much what it sounds like.

(Extra credit: LA Weekly has an interview with the guy. This guy went to high school really close to where I grew up. And he was a DDR nerd. And he has done things other than libertarian dubstep, has an EP besides this track and is playing some actual venues–but the phrase “libertarian dubstep” is what everyone–us included–is going to pick up on because it’s just so tempting, you know?)
