HERE’S THE DIFFERENCE: IN CAPITALISM, PEOPLE HAVE RISKED THEIR LIVES TO SAVE THEIR DOGS; IN SOCIALISM, PEOPLE KILL THEIR DOGS TO SAVE THEIR OWN LIVES … THAT’S WHY PEOPLE RISK THEIR LIVES TO MIGRATE TO THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA. AND THAT’S WHY PEOPLE RISKED THEIR LIVES TO MIGRATE FROM VENEZUELA, NORTH KOREA AND CUBA.”

-Johan Norberg, author of Open: The Story of Human Progress 

Johan Norberg is an author, lecturer and documentary filmmaker, born in Sweden. He is a Senior Fellow at the Cato Institute in Washington D.C. and the European Centre for International Political Economy in Brussels. He received his M. A. in the History of Ideas from the University of Stockholm.

About Keith Knight

Keith Knight is the creator of the Don't Tread on Anyone podcast and Odysee channel. Having supported Barack Obama in 2008, and Mitt Romney in 2012, he became a Libertarian Anarchist after running out of arguments for when initiating violence is morally permissible. His goal in life is to spread knowledge of critical thinking, the non-aggression principle, self-ownership, natural law and the private property ethic.
