The Case Against the EU

As usual, big government has led to corporatism, i.e. corporations exerting their influence and getting regulations passed to stifle and keep out the competition. One example mentioned in the lecture below is that of pharmaceutical companies trying to ban alternative remedies and herbal medicines within the EU.

The lecture itself is a comprehensive argument against the EU, from several angles, and is also an interesting historical and cultural lesson.

For more on the corporatism of the EU, the speaker wrote this article a couple days ago.
