    12:35 Okay we all know about the philosophy behind free markets, but can we talk about its assumptions? 1. That individual self interests can contradict, and even act against the self interests of others. 2. That, all things being equal, all self interests will negate the negative aspects of other's self interests and enhance the benefits. 3. That all individuals have different self interests, and that there is no minority self interest. So basically, it works if: everyone has the same chance of success as everyone else, everyone keeps every other person in check, there are no minorities being outspoken in this conflict of interests, and that there's a self interest to counter every negative aspect of every other self interest, but that they don't affect the benefits in the same manner. please, if I forgot one, or misinterpreted something, let me know.

    The modern "culture of individualism" is definitely not an enlightenment achievement just thrown out there like I feel like was implied here. This is something specifically american that did not appear anywhere in the world in this same manner up until the cold war period - and was perpetuated in the way we see "individualism" manifested today as a vector of cold war politics.

    Honesty, Inquisitiveness, Openness.. Social gatherings that foster learning For Fun. Ignoring unjust or over reaching Law,, "Natural Individual" "Dare to Know. "All things must be examined, Debated, investigated without exception and without regard for anyone's feelings"..?.. This Enlightenment thing sounds nice. About time for a refresher coarse I think..

    God only knows how we will get to the 19th century. Romanticism. Colonialism. Early Socialism and Labor Unionism (unless that last one is in the 1700s). Abolitionism. The fight against sex trafficking ("white slavery"), again abolitionism. Romanticism, German Idealism. Utilitarianism. Traditionalism. Anarchist Ideas (though again, those started in the 1700s with William Godwin). Feminism? (feminist salons? Mary Wollstonecraft).

    I love Kant, but it is so so so so hard to figure out what he is saying (about anything, the Pleasant, the Good, the Sublime, Noumenon, Thing in itself, the State, the Good in itself and for itself)....He writes in this way that is so hard for minds to decifer and clear up. It is like the worst about Kant went on and influenced the worst about Hegel, and Heidegger (god damn that last man's reputation to the flames of ignomity).

    The social contract simply seems like a social version of what someone might call structuralism (the linguists called it that first, then people outside of linguistics called it that. Narrative theory was big in churches in the early 2000s, and big in universities before then).

    Also, this sounds better than socialism. I think Smith's system (based on capital? Capitalism?...that sounds nice, has a ring to it) sounds better than any socialism. It sounds more dynamic than it. The things that people say about capitalism all the time, maybe are a little untrue??? I would be okay with a theoretical democratic socialism, though I believe we would eventually come closer to capitalism than socialism (whatever we call what we are doing). I like social democracy, but really I might like my own country's liberal economy better than German style Social Democracy.

    Remember this is a cliffnotes version of the enlightenment. The birth of socialism & industrialisation will probably be covered in later videos but suffice to say political & economic thought evolved and built on top of the enlightenment over the next 200 years. Far from a harsh transition, the ideas were iterated & modified to become the capitalist/socialist blend of politics & economics we'd recognise today.

    The low area in Lisbon was also a large section of the Jewish Quarter, however it was not called 'little Jerusalem' as many tour guides claim to my knowledge. The Portuguese government however does not want to excavate the area, because there is not a Jewish Museum, so a lot of the jewish artifacts would not stay in Portugal.

    Imagine thinking the political spectrum is a linear line, rather than a compass incorporating libertarian to authoritarian values You’re talking about Neo-Conservatives rather than classic Liberal Conservatives, or Anarcho-Capitalists Conservatives. In the same way you’re talking about liberal state capitalists, rather than Social liberalism or anarcho-syndicalism This is a libertarian free market vs state controlled free market issue, not as much a conservative v liberal one

And Lol thats a conservative talking point since they call everything you hate socialist and put that straw man everywhere and Kind of already proves my point; thanks for that you played yourself XD. So I don't need to waste time on a worthless troll not who just wants attention and desires to spread misinformation. Oh wait I mean alternative facts XD

    When Voltaire and Fridrich the II (yes, the same Prussian Emperor from the previous episode) were sailing on a boat, Voltaire noticed it was leaking and quickly got out. Fridrich laughed and noticed "You care too much about your life. I, you see, am not afraid of death". Voltaire immediately exclaimed: "well of course, there are a lot of kings besides you, but there is only one Voltaire!“ Guy was a friend to, like, all the European rulers of his time
