Progressivism, the Selfish Philosophy of Coercive Entitlement. Jeff Deist & Keith Knight

by | May 8, 2021

Every man can enjoy the right of self-ownership, without special coercion upon anyone. But in the case of a “right” to schooling, this can only be provided if other people are coerced into fulfilling it. Th e “right” to schooling, to a job, three meals, etc., is then not embedded in the nature of man, but requires for its fulfillment the existence of a group of exploited people who are coerced into providing such a “right.”

 

Murray N. Rothbard

For a New Liberty, pp. 164–65

Jeff Deist is president of the Mises Institute, where he serves as a writer, public speaker, and advocate for property, markets, and civil society. He previously worked as a longtime advisor and chief of staff to Congressman Ron Paul, for whom he wrote hundreds of articles and speeches. In his years with Dr. Paul he worked with countless grassroots activists and organizations dedicated to reducing the size and scope of government.

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.
