Wow. After hearing the first few second on what he said about Sweden, I realised he doesn't know what he's talking about. No need to watch that video, then.

Hum, that old one? socialism vs capitalism!  I’m not convinced by having a smaller government with a smaller tax income such to  leave more money in the hands of the individuals would trickle down via their personal charitable donations. We all instinctively  help ourselves first and if we have more money we will look out for number one first! so after private health care for you and your family, private education for you kids and that 2nd home or luxury holiday you might give some left over money to a charity. But this perpetuates the elite and existing inherited  privileges i.e. the Them and the Us.  Charitable donations would invariably be for personal short-term feel good factors rather than long-term societal  benefits of which when left unfunded will bubble up and smack us all both morally and financial. I get the work hard to get the reward approach and it bites when you see your money taken away and given to others that appear to be just lazy spongers, but such rhetoric  gets disproportionate amount of airtime and often highlighted when the word socialism is mentioned in what is really just incorrect pro-capitalism propaganda. The biggest misassumption is that people will do nothing and lose drive if given enough money for free, this has consistently been proved as BS. Yes there will be a very very small proportion that would chose to be in such a situation and take advantage, but by far most people are driven by many more factors in their careers or life choices other than what they aspire to ultimately earn. A humans drive for “status” and to be seen as “successful” is strong and that is generally why we are asked “what do you do?” rather than “how much do you earn” . To build a fiscal policy around this insignificance by stoking human emotions/fears is just not right. A person who decides, for example, not to have children could understandably argue why they should not be taxed to help fund schools and education, when in fact they stand to gain as much as anyone by having an educated young work force around them especially when they themselves one day will be old and unable to work.  Would the “handing” back of cash for individuals to control see the  charities with the best marketing succeed better than the more deserving ones? how much money does the donkey sanctuary or dog rescue need above less fluffy charities like extreme poverty or research on diseases/virues that you think you wont get.
