Daniel Hannan Lecture at Hillsdale College

As regular readers of this blog know, I’m a huge fan of Daniel Hannan, conservative Member of European Parliament, occasional commentator on Fox News, and author of The New Road to Serfdom.  (Great book, by the way.)

If you like him too and have some time, here’s a video of a lecture he gave at Hillsdale College, about why we should avoid following the European path.  It’s longish, so don’t watch it at work!

About Mystic Cowgirl

I worked overseas in the aid game for longer than I'd like to admit and learned several important things: 1) Third World countries aren't poor because America is rich. They're impoverished due to socialist governments that provide neither rule of law nor basic infrastructures; 2) These socialist governments redistribute wealth from taxpayers to the government workers. There's no benefit to the poor or downtrodden, and certainly not to the general welfare in terms of infrastructure improvements. 3) America is moving toward the Third World model. Rule of law has been subverted because equality under the law is disappearing as special interests carve out exemptions to regulations and special favors under the law. The redistribution of wealth to government began decades ago -- total compensation for government employees now outpaces salaries in the private sector.
