CLASSIC VIDEO: Milton Friedman Explains Why SOCIALISM IS FORCE

Milton Friedman Socialism

In the video below, the libertarian Nobel Prize winning economist Milton Friedman explains why Socialism is force.

It doesn’t matter if the Socialist has good intentions. It is always a form of force.

Here’s a partial transcript:

“Trying to do good with methods that involve force lead to bad results. Because the people who set out with good intentions are themselves corrupted. And if they’re not corrupted they are replaced with people with bad intentions who are more efficient at getting control of the use of force……The most harm of all is done when power is in the hands of people who are absolutely persuaded of the purity of their intentions.”
