Vigilantism

When is vigilantism ok?

As a society, we have numerous examples of a celebration of vigilantism. However, as it is defined, it is criminal justice outside of law and if we accept that everyone should be operating within the law, this idea that we idealize vigilantes becomes problematic. In this episode, we explore what vigilantism is both socially and in pop culture, look at some real world vigilantes, and discuss the moral implications of them on narrow and broad scales.
