Liberty Lessons Video

Larry Reed, the president of FEE, reminds us in this ReasonTV interview that more government means less liberty. Specifically, he makes these three points:

1. Government can provide you with absolutely nothing except that which it has first taken from somebody else.

2. A government big enough to give you want you want, is big enough to take everything you have.

3. A free people are not economically equal, and an economically equal people are not free.

FEE has been in the battle for liberty for a long time and continues to do some of the best educational work. Watch the video.
