A Masterpiece of Derp


The best thing about derp is that it always tops itself.

In all my years, I have never seen such a masterpiece. In the first minute, he explains that people are greedy and stupid and so can't be trusted.
30 seconds later, he explains that this is the reason we need an organization that will protect people.
Will this protecting organization be staffed with angels, superintelligent robots, or benevolent aliens perhaps? He does not say.
Bastiat looms large with this one.
“If the natural tendencies of mankind are so bad that it is not safe to permit people to be free, how is it that the tendencies of these organizers are always good? Do not the legislators and their appointed agents also belong to the human race? Or do they believe that they themselves are made of a finer clay than the rest of mankind?”
