Earth – The Insane Asylum
This is an excellent video that hits on several of the key points in my essays on government as force, and the problems with collectivism. I’m rather unenthusiastic with his conclusion that the masses are insane and therefore inconvertible. I see it as a matter of momentum. Statism and tyranny currently have the momentum, however that isn’t necessarily inevitable—particularly with the Internet that now allows for instant widespread truth dissemination. I believe there is cause for optimism. Still, in spite of the pessimism, it’s a thought-provoking piece for those losing faith in the capability of government to solve problems.
