Whether or not you like Milton, he drops some knowledge and pwns a hippy teenager.

Go Milton! I love the Free Market and the things it can provide....it's a shame we destroyed it in the first place.

It was awesome to see him "own" that kid....as obviously (as Milton pointed out), the kid was trivializing matters, and, in essence, saying "life has no price", which is saying that we should, in theory, throw and infinite amount of resources towards one life, simply because "you cannot place a value on a life".

I know, it sounds harsh, but just stop and think about it for a second.

Anyway, great video; I'll definitely favorite it.

Gotta say that the capitalist profit motive always overcomes all other concerns.

Which is why you have bad pop music, cars that break down within 10 years, cheap food, call centers in india, price fixing, etc

This kid uses the same approach as a lot of the 9/11 truthers. Distort the facts. Talk fast and loud to drown out other people. Find small, trivial, cherry picked examples.
