The Sovietization of America

John Hospers was professor emeritus of philosophy at the University of Southern California. He was also the first Libertarian Party Presidential candidate in 1972.

In this video from a 1994 International Society for Individual Liberty conference, Hospers shares his thoughts on the current state of affairs in America, citing the litigation explosion, silly laws and regulatory overreach, the proposed Clinton healthcare program, minimum mandatory sentencing guidelines and civil asset forfeiture policies, and more generally all manner of government interference in Americans’ lives.
