Lessons From The Hoover Policy Boot Camp Discussion

Socialism vs. Capitalism with Peter Berkowitz
What comes to mind when you hear the word “socialism”?


A gargantuan bureaucracy controlling everything about a population's existence with the end result is a product of that bureaucracy's design, for the bureaucracy's own purpose. The individual's life is spent toward that end and that end alone!

Socialism is about the same as having a very large and mindless cattle drive, herding all with a whole bunch good oil' cowboys with little to no intellect above that of the cattle they herd, no idea where they are going, and no idea when they are supposed to or have arrived. And the cattle funded the drive.
