I found a cute little video that describes some basic foundations of freedom and liberty.
The money quote, of course, is Bastiat’s shown above:
When plunder becomes a way of life for a group of men in a society, over the course of time they create for themselves a legal system that authorizes it and a moral code that glorifies it.
I suspect that we’ve been here for awhile now. But if you wanna check to make sure that we’re still here, wait for someone to make the case that healthcare is a fundamental human right. Or, even better, attack you as a cold blooded bastard for wanting a policy that would allow people to die in the street.
The same can be said for Medicaid, Medicare and Social Security.
