Ben Shapiro destroys a socialist

Don't know what you think about Ben Shapiro, but he is not one with whom to argue capitalism vs. socialism. He destroys every point of the socialist he's debating with the truth. Fun to watch, and informative.


And the Chicks on the Right blog is a pretty informative place on current events.

    I love watching that guy. He doesn’t open his mouth unless he’s 110% sure that what’s gonna come out is truthful and puts his adversary to shame. He’s definitely quick witted.

    Shapiro probably dreams in binary code. That dude is sharp. Always enjoy watching him destroy the left.

    I have add blocker, the video was not the right one when I went to the sight.
    Had to turn off add blocker to get a video to come up.

    . Having to turn off the ad blocker to get to the video was weird.

    That's weird. Perhaps it doesn't work on smartphones? - not sure what you guys are using. I didn't have any issues on my home PC.

    Ben Shapiro is a smart guy, who knows the subject he is debating, inside and out. Likely, he researched the question carefully, a long time ago, when he was trying to make up his own mind about which economic system was best.

    His opponent on that video seems to be a pretty smart guy, too. But he has not yet mastered the 'liberal art' of transforming every argument into a moral outrage contest. A socialist must have a victim to defend, and emotional arguments that appeal to all of the other victims that make up his support base. Learning that will help him to survive arguments with opponents who actually know the material, and can speak honestly to the question that was asked.

    Shapiro was spot on. And those workers are more than welcome to form a coop and purchase their own building, machinery, etc.

    That is just what I was hearing where I worked, management was bad and taking advantage of the workers. Funny thing is these same people was making more money then there supervisors. They were complaining while making 100,000
    dollars or more a year + benefits.

    Ben Shapiro, despite his youth, is an old school debater who deals with every single question that is asked of him, in a perfectly logical way. He faces up to every question and accusation that the finest liberal minds can throw at him. The only way to make him look bad is to turn his microphone off, or shout him down.

    Show me any liberal that can defeat his logic, and not employ straw-man arguments and bait and switch tricks, and I will praise his ability to make an honest argument, even if I disagree with him. This is the only way problems can be solved, without domination and destruction of the truth.
