Human Nature – why we have political conflicts

The following are elements of human nature:

  1. It is human nature that the “invisible hand” of the free market works to create the most prosperity for the most people.
  2. It is human nature that Socialism does not and cannot work, as there is no way for the commands of the very few to replace the accuracy, precision and correctness of billions of individual economic decisions optimized to produce maximum benefit in the microcosm of the individual. Socialism cannot work because there is no way to prevent it from degenerating into tyranny as the commands of the few must supersede the wishes of the many.
  3. It is human nature to want to “do better” which sometimes leads to organized attempts to replace the free market with Socialism.

For the above reasons, we have a continuous environment of political conflict, as freedom struggles with tyranny.
