I like how Milton smiles in a kind-hearted way while explaining somewhat unconfortable topics and still makes you feel good about it, even if you may disagree with him. I believe he's a genuinely good man who really cares to make a difference. If you think the video is too long, start at the 1:55 mark.

A concern not particular to socialism. Someone is always going to be "forcing" someone else to do something, particularly if one recognizes that a forceful outcome can be achieved at something less than the point of a gun.

he endless freaking out by people about being "forced" to do something is the same noise whether it comes from someone experiencing legitimate legal sanction or someone who may actually have a valid complaint of unnecessary interference in their wholly private affairs. It means nothing, other than to suggest that the complainer may want to do something that others might construe as antisocial and should be watched accordingly.

Next, why guns are love, and bigger is better  Wink

Great guy.  His argument for the small state supported by taxation is still the best of its kind.  

EDIT: Fred - just realised that this was your thread.  Welcome to the the light side Cheesy

I didn't say I agreed with him entirely. He does flip flop on the taxation issue if you listen to his other dissertations. Either way, I still like him. I think he doesn't want to hurt anybody, and so were he given the chance to be the tax man, I don't think he'd go after an evader or he'd turn it down flatly.

If I were to be provided a choice between somebody like him, and the greater majority of politicians I know (perhaps excepting Ron Paul), I'd definitely take him. It's at least a step in the right direction (opinion).
