Milton Friedman Speaks: Putting Learning Back in the Classroom (B1235) - Full Video

0 ratings | 5015 views
The quality of public education in America today in many places is deplorable. Dr. Friedman identifies (1) the increasing centralization and bureaucratization of the educational establishment, which inhibits educators from seeing and responding to the needs of their "consumers" (parents and students); (2) our altered view of the relationship between the individual and society--the shift from seeing the individual as responsible for oneself to seeing the individual as someone controlled by social forces. An obvious solution is to give power back to the parents. The voucher system is an especially effective means of exercising that power; it can foster competition among public and private institutions and incite them to offer us a better quality educational "product."

Who is that disgusting fella at about the 46:31mark? OTOH, his attack on trade unions is valid and his denunciation of government/politicians for imposing debt slavery is equally valid. His behavior is shameful.

"The government consists of a gang of men exactly like you and me. They have, taking one with another, no special talent for the business of government; they have only a talent for getting and holding office. Their principal device to that end is to search out groups who pant and pine for something they can't get and to promise to give it to them. Nine times out of ten that promise is worth nothing. The tenth time is made good by looting A to satisfy B. In other words, government is a broker in pillage, and every election is sort of an advance auction sale of stolen goods." - H. L. Mencken So, We The People are looted of our freedoms and made abject stinkin’ slaves on the plantation state run by masters/politicians and their overseers/enforcers/judges and others. How diabolically ironic is that in "the land of the free and home of the brave?" Voting is an act of violence! So when people vote for politicians to impose “laws” that loot A (enforcement provisions), they have voted to deprive you of your freedom if you happen to disagree. Welcome to “lootocracy Amerika.” Are you proud you defended the criminal politicians? Are you pleased to have sanctioned force in the form of the IRS? Are you pleased you have sanctioned “laws” that operate to convert you and your friends and family to the status of slave?

You’re a Statist if you advocate Statism. Statists believe that… 1. Bad means are often needed to achieve good ends (the ends justify the means) 2. The State should initiate force to achieve social goals (aggression/violence is acceptable, i.e. they are immoral, typically this describes politicians, especially commie/socialists and particularly DemonKraits but not limited to them) 3. People who work for The State can morally do things that would be criminal for others to do (true for many bureaucrats but not all) reference: Zero Aggression Project by Perry Willis and Jim Babka Thomas Sowell said: “The most basic question is not what is best, but who shall decide what is best.”

Why do people hate, hate and hate more? Hate is evidence of anger and anger is at least in part driven by fear. So, why to people hate-fear? And what do they fear? Friedman says that people fear losing power to dictate to people how they must live. Indeed the arrogance/superciliousness of the commie/socialist Democrats is evident; their hate mongering; their fear is that people will reacquire their Jehovah God given free will, their freedom to choose. I don't like the voucher system because parents are, as Friedman pointed out, compelled to pay taxes/extortion to finance public education which they do not use. The voucher system still puts government bureaucrats in dictatorial, tyrannical, positions. The most just system is privatized education. The experiment in government monopolized education is a failure and it is evidence of insanity...repeating the same old experiment expecting a different result.

The R word thrown in to any debate let's emotion in and logic goes out the door

I enjoyed the last question very much. It made me forget the frustrating previous ones.

Milton Friedman was a genius. His ideas still ring true today.
