YouTube Video: Mike Benoit's Seminar on Introduction To Freedom: Bastiat, And The Argument Against Utility.
Mike Benoit gave a compelling and interesting 35 minute lecture at this months "SupperClub", and we have the video here for those that wish to view it, or review it. The lecture covered many important topics for understanding what the essence of freedom is. Also included, is the proper role of government to foster freedom, and the misuse of government power and permissions that constitute tyranny. Governments that become tyrannical no longer operate efficiently with use of public resources, and hurt economic prosperity (i.e., kill jobs), and suffocate our rights.
The wisdom of Economist and political philosopher Fred Bastiat, circa 1850, was shared with the audience, and is also in this video. Viewers are encouraged to read Fred's seminal book on the core of freedom, entitled 'The Law". Hint: Its not actually about jurisprudent law, but the laws of freedom, and humanity, and human rights.
