David Friedman on How to Privatize Everything

"Producing laws is not an easier problem than producing cars or food," says David Friedman, author, philosopher, and professor at Santa Clara University. "So if the government's incompetent to produce cars or food, why do you expect it to do a good job producing the legal system within which you are then going to produce the cars and the food?"-http://youtu.be/S4CcannofnY

All I know is it's good people are being exposed to other ideas and alternatives.

At the end, Friedman doesn't believe the EU should become one because it will inhibit competition and muses the U.S. shouldn't be one as well arguing it may be better off dissolving - or at least this is what he's implying.

Secessionism is on the rise to be sure. What if people know nothing can be fixed in the current political framework and do work towards breaking North America apart?

In this way, we could see, for example, Western states and provinces forming one block, the American Mid-west and Prairies another, Quebec, Ontario and surrounding states like Minnesota, Michigan and Ohio. New England and the Maritimes, the South, Texas, and so on.

I remember when Ken Dryden once talked about how Canadians lived in such a big country that the lives of someone living in Vancouver and Montreal may as well have been foreigners.
