Milton Friedman: The normal State of man is misery & tyranny

Milton Friedman was one of the most respected and admired economic minds of the 20th century and a staunch supporter of the free market system.  In the 1980s he was the economic advisor for Ronald Reagan.  This is a must watch video.  Mr. Friedman absolutely nails it!  He provides a logical and understandable explanation as to why a society tends to drift towards tyranny.  His explanation is so clear; I think Democrats will even understand it.

It’s about 9 minutes long, but worth the look.  Enjoy.

It’s scary how he seems to be talking about the times we live in now; especially the part about how we pass laws with good intentions that basically limit our liberties.  He also said that once a law is passed it is very difficult to repeal.  We hear this exact same language today when it comes to the healthcare bill.  What’s really mind boggling is how we choose to ignore the words of this Nobel Prize winning economist and press on with the destructive Keynesian economic model.  It doesn’t pass the smell test.

Sooner or later we’ll wake up and when we do, the Constitutional Republic will be restored.  Only then will we be able to usher in a new “golden age” for America.

Liberty forever, freedom for all!
