Hi, my name’s Tom. Welcome back to my channel and, following the very warm reception you gave my Society of the Spectacle videos, a slightly more overtly political analysis-y video today in which I’m going to talk about two terms which have been very much on my mind of late: the first being “millennial socialism”
Is our economy a machine, like an automobile, a train or a power plant? One constantly hears phrases such as the economy “is overheating” or “needs to cool off” or “could use some stimulus.” These aren’t harmless metaphors. They epitomize how economists have taught us to see an economy–as something that can be manipulated, guided
“Can the Government Run the Economy?”
D’Souza: You’ve actually now identified the villain, and the villain is the government, a government agency that is passing laws that make no sense. Government agencies exist to do this.

“THE GOVERNMENT IS THE VILLAIN: Why bureaucrats always screw things up”
One of the most important differences between the Left and the Right is how each regards the role and the size of the government.

“People on the Street: What is the Purpose of Government”
D’Souza: In the early years of the Civil War when the Union armies began to deploy black soldiers, the Confederates adopted a policy that said any black soldier captured by the Confederacy would be shot.

KENNEDY: THANK YOU TRISH! THE DEMOCRATIC PARTY CIVIL WAR IS UPON US. IMPEACHMENT AND SOCIALISM TEARING THEM APART FROM THE INSIDE. CAN NANCY PELOSI HOLD IT ALL TOGETHER? OR WILL THE PRESIDENT EXPLOIT THIS NEW WEAKNESS AND SKATE INTO AN EASY REELECTION VICTORY?IT’S BEEN ONLY TWO MONTHS SINCE NANCY PELOSI AND DEMOCRATS TOOK CONTROL OF
“Dems in disarray ahead of 2020 election”
(upbeat electronic music) – Universal basic income. It seems like a pretty simple concept, right?

In theory this
