Hans-Herman Hoppe: On Habitual Immoralists and Democratic Government


Excerpted from a 1997 presentation at the Mises Institute. The original lecture is entitled "Democracy: The God That Failed." I have cropped out Professor Hoppe's portions on monarchy, primarily as a way of shortening the video. I would recommend all to listen or read his argument on the subject. In it, he compares the role of the prince in a monarchy to that of democratically elected leaders. The full presentation can be found here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PPx1sC30hK4
