  Resolved Question: Do you largely agree,
So that the record of history is absolutely crystal clear. That there is no alternative way, so far discovered, of improving the lot of the ordinary people that can hold a candle to the productive activities that are unleashed by a free enterprise system. The most important single central fact about a free market is that no exchange takes place unless both parties benefit. We have a system that increasingly taxes work and subsidizes nonwork. The government solution to a problem is usually as bad as the problem. Nothing is so permanent as a temporary government program. Many people want the government to protect the consumer. A much more urgent problem is to protect the consumer from the government. The Great Depression, like most other periods of severe unemployment, was produced by government mismanagement rather than by any inherent instability of the private economy. Most economic fallacies derive from the tendency to assume that there is a fixed pie, that one party can gain only at the expense of another. The problem of social organization is how to set up an arrangement under which greed will do the least harm, capitalism is that kind of a system. The greatest advances of civilization, whether in architecture or painting, in science and literature, in industry or agriculture, have never come from centralized government. Most of the energy of political work is devoted to correcting the effects of mismanagement of government. -- Milton Friedman

  Resolved Question: Understanding Milton
1-Did Milton Friedman believe that democratic socialism and freedom are inversely related? (yes/no) 2-Is democratic socialism a philosophy in which a person has political freedom (elected govt) but not economic freedom (govt decides what to do based on cost/benefit analysis). 3- he was against all forms of socialism (including democractic socialism which provided political freedom) because they did not provide ECONOMIC freedom. Thank you :)
