Founded in 2007, Students for Liberty (SFL) is a non-profit organization dedicated to supporting students and student organizations in the goal of advancing liberty in the United States and globally. SFL is a student-driven organization that provides training, networking opportunities, and educational resources for students nationwide; it has quickly become one of the most prominent and revered groups in the student liberty movement, a transnational, youth-led movement rooted in a range of libertarian philosophies, from Objectivism to Austrian Economics, but more broadly committed to expanding economic, social, and intellectual freedom. Members of the liberty movement have created a vibrant online community and utilize diverse media practices to share their love of liberty and fandom of libertarian theorists.

They combine the complexities of both clever song writing techniques with often fast-paced video editing, that tells a story or provides a visually stimulating counterpoint to the music. But for millennials and those growing up after the launch of MTV in 1981, the format has become part-and-parcel to media consumptions habits.
What music videos, particularly pop and hip-hop, offer though as a pedagogical tool is their catchy, repetitive song structure that repeats choruses and act as a mnemonic device. Moreover the lyrical rhyme system of storytelling information or rhetorical statements provide an emotionally engaging and easy-to-follow logical structure.
Amongst the organizations, they're both examples of completely original songs as well as parody songs, that use pre-existing songs as a base to change the lyrical content or original meaning. For example, the music video Fear the Boom and Bust is an original song that uses hip-hop tropes to analyze opposing economic philosophies of Friedrich Hayek and John Maynard Keyes. The playful song helps to make the dry subject more fun while the simple storyline of the video helps to illustrate their opposing arguments and lifestyles.
Black and Yellow - AnCap Remix on the other hand uses a pre-existing popular song by Wiz Khalifa to give it new meaning. While the original song referred to the "Black and Yellow" of Pittsburg Steelers, in the remix it's used to refer to the colors of the Anarcho-Capitalist flag. So the remix reappropriates the rallying spirit of the original and directs that energy towards defining an ingroup identity of what it means to be an Anarcho-Capitalist.
