Milton Friedman: Socialism versus Capitalism

Maybe not really Senate-related, but I thought you'd be interested.

I love the line "Where are you going to find these angels to organize society for us?" The federal government was originally designed so that it could be run by devils and still be constrained to do what only what it was supposed to do. Unfortunately, the 17th Amendment fundamentally altered the structure of the federal government and freed it to begin centralizing all power into itself.

I guess it is kind of Senate-related, then.

This is an awesome video. Thank you. Of course I've heard his name but hadn't seen him speak before. Very nice when somebody can put the words to an idea I have trouble elucidating. One of those "self-evident truths" that people just don't get.
