This isn't one I can find a way to embed here but is so good I thought I'd link to it anyway. It packs a powerful punch about the origins of "political correctness" and makes you wonder if having your kids go to university is such a good idea after all.

This is a fascinating lecture by Hans-Hermann Hoppe on the current state of states that ends with the possibility of a new renaissance.

If this man had stuck to his principles in office the world would have been a much better place.
This is a quite prophetic talk from 1961 about the threat of socialised medicine. As I listened to it I heard, in my head, several BBC and Guardian types trying to ridicule him. You might find the same thing.
The power of constant propaganda over decades and decades is amazingly strong but it also has a weakness. When someone starts to think for themselves the rhetoric of the state becomes obvious and predictable.

This is so completely off the wall in such an utterly stupid way that I just couldn't help laughing. Get this... Hillary Benn thinks it a good idea to ban supermarkets from offering "buy one get one free" offers. Obviously it is "for the children" or "the environment". It certainly wins my vote as the most ridiculous idea for the children, the environment, the economy or winning back voters. We do live in interesting times.
