Two Rough Draft Videos - Comments Needed

These videos were not made by BFU but are being created by Andrew Quinlan and his foundation.

The first video is very short and cute - just a couple of minutes. It does make a good point in a humorous way, I sent them an email letting them know I've already added it to my Free Market Lens. This talks about international competition, I would like to compare this to how the founding fathers pictured America as 13 competing governments or states. The most attractive governments would attract new settlers and no government would dare become too strong.

"A government big enough to give you everything you want, is strong enough to take everything you have." - Thomas Jefferson

The second video is a bit longer, and still a bit rough (he even mispronounces Celtic). It is still an entertaining and insightful piece of work. You will learn more in less than ten minutes than I learned in years of economics courses - some real common sense ideas. Once these are done expect to see them as part of a few BFU courses.

Having had bad experiences recently with e-mails in a blog I'll send you to Andrew's Market Center Blog to make comments. His blog and his site have good educational material that you will want to explore.

"But what more oft, in nations grown corrupt, and by their vices brought to servitude, than to love bondage more than liberty - bondage with ease than strenuous liberty - and to despise, or envy, or suspect, whom God hath of his special favor raised as their deliverer?" - John Milton
