I’ve been sidelined by a serious cold for the last week, but I wanted to throw this video up there because it raises an important point that people need to understand. Things have gotten better for the human race since the industrial revolution, not worse. And a lot of this is due to economic liberty. It’s no surprise that those who decry the economic gains of the 20th century are those who think a statist solution needs to be employed. In other words, they want more government interference in everything. We can see how that has worked out in the US since our current president came to power. The economy has been in perpetual doldrums and they are still churning out mountains of regulations. Government doesn’t solve problems. Look at the drug war, prohibition and the war on poverty as classic examples.
