I believe this video is stupid, because as a self-described leftist his solutions to all these problems will likely all be summarized to involve calling up the local government mafia and showing the big evil corporations "who's boss", at gun point if necessary. And of course the poor will get poorer as a result because they don't have the money to tread through the government red tape it takes to start their own company.
And that the democratic society, although seductive, is not a type which will produce the greatest happiness in man, and will experience downfall through an excessive desire for liberty. He says that democracy will devolve into a tyranny, lead by a god like leader whose worshipers will insist he take leadship, and then protect him. The tyrannical leader will eventually prove corruptable, then seclude himself behind a wall of protectors, which in Plato's discussion leads to the unhappiest society. Plato says that no one who has any sense could deny that the best form of government is the Philosopher king who has sovereignty over himself.

Ever since dueling was outlawed the western world has been on a downward slope towards tyranny.
Man A: "You are fired for pointing out a safety issue"
Man B : "Fiend! I challenge you to a duel. Art thou a coward?"
Man A: "Nay"
Man B: "Then one of us shall die"
Politician: "I've Raised your taxes"
Man: "Deciever! I challenge you to a duel. You are a stain on our State's Honour - art thou also a coward?"
Politician: "I would duel you, but I've outlawed the thing. You must seek another recourse; perhaps thou wilt make manufacture of a sign and march in protest?" (laughs in Man's face)
*And so taxes have been continually raised ever since dueling was outlawed... Our labor abused, our freedoms reduced, etc, etc....
Edit for a Bastiat quote:
"When plunder becomes a way of life for a group of men living together in society, they create for themselves in the course of time a legal system that authorizes it, and a moral code that glorifies it." ~ Frédéric Bastiat, The Law
