A lesson of Humility for Libertarians from Milton Friedman


http://youtu.be/bibfslEFk2s

Hello to my fellow DP community, I wish to share this video I watched last night staring an iconic libertarian Dr. Milton Friedman. In the video Milton talks about how nothing is Utopian or perfect, that even we libertarians aren't always right and must learn a little humility. It really helped me understand how to debate better with socialist individuals. For a time I was ridding high and mighty on my views, that was until I watched this. Now note this video is not to discourage the common Liberal (The real liberal not its distorted meaning in today's world) but it is meant to teach us how to better argue our views as well as to help preach our views in a manner in which people can agree upon them. So watch and learn from the late great Dr. Milton Friedman (Does he have his doctorate)

If the video does not come up as I tried to embed it, I'm having difficulty doing so I apologize and will list the direct youtube link below.

If anyone should be humble, it's Milton Friedman, the genius

who devised federal income tax withholding when he worked at the Treasury Department.
