Why Shouldn’t Everything be Free?

The notion that getting things for free is a human right is being popularized by Sanders and Clinton.  It’s the corollary to socialism in that it promotes the idea the someone else is covering the cost of everything for your benefit.   I refer to it as OPM – Other People’s Money.  When the person benefiting from a good or service is not the one paying for it.   OPM is the most insidious relationship that undermines positive human behavior.  With Obama and other large government proponents, OPM slowly becomes more central to your life and undermines real growth.

This is an interesting 3-minute video with Dinesh D’Souza that helps to greatly illustrate the problems with OPM.
