Daniel Hannan is a brilliant MP (Member of Parliament) in the European Union from the United Kingdom. He is a conservative thinker who has used his quick wit and superior intelligence to thrash many leftists who attempt to defend the indefensible (mainly liberalism).
In a short video for Russia Today’s online network Hannan takes less than 2 minutes to explain why socialism is the most detrimental idea to have taken root in the last century.

If someone asked you to define “free market,” could you? Could you do it on the spot without recourse to dictionaries or other crutches?
There’s an old tale about the origin of the term “laissez-faire” that gets to my point. Here’s the write-up in Wikipedia:
The term laissez faire likely originated in a meeting that took place around 1681 between powerful French Comptroller-General of Finances Jean-Baptiste Colbert and a group of French businessmen headed by M. Le Gendre. When the eager mercantilist minister asked how the French state could be of service to the merchants and help promote their commerce, Le Gendre replied simply “Laissez-nous faire” (“Leave it to us” or “Let us do [it],” the French verb not having to take an object).

Some instincts are rights, not all instincts are rights, not all rights are instincts. You have a right to PROTECT your life, liberty and property. Some instincts are not rights. You do not have the right to steal what you covet, although that may be instinctive in some.
My blog is about 2½ years old now, and I’ve had well over 30,000 views. Articles automatically also get posted onto my Facebook page, where a larger number of my friends see them; most of the comments show up on my Facebook page.
While I still write posts myself, the lion’s share are re-posts from friends around the world who write well on the issues which are important to me (hey, it’s my blog). Many times, I fall into the trap of forgetting that many (most?) readers have zero training (and less understanding) of the subjects I blog about.
Because so many people (Americans and not) have no real clue about the good that is Capitalism and the benefits that each person enjoys because of Capitalism, I’d like to go over a few basics. So, this is for the good people out there who say things like, “He can afford it,” and “He’s just greedy and only worrying about making a profit.”
