Walter Block Debates Marxist Professor - Check Out This StatementSubmitted by Alliance With None on Tue, 05/06/2014 - 10:53
Not long before the fall of the USSR, Walter Block bless his soul had to debate this professor James Rice on government welfare.
Check out 1:25:20-1:27:20. Walter Block raises the point about private sector competition driving quality up and prices down, and Professor Rice calls it a lie. It's astounding:
In his opening remarks, Professor Rice describes the goosebumps he felt when first hearing the Declaration Of Human Rights. Always the emotional over the rational.
He even uses Adam Smith's discussion of "cooperation" to support the idea of government welfare -- as though wealth redistribution and cooperation are one and the same. It's pure insanity.
Walter is a champ.
