“The state is not the solution, it is the problem itself”: Milei in Davos

Important facts:
  • The Argentine took the opportunity to present his ultra-liberal vision to the world elite.

  • Milei warned of the effects of government intervention that restricts citizens' freedom.

Javier Milei explained today at the Davos Economic Forum: “The state is not the solution, it is the problem itself.” A message that many Bitcoiners identified with and immediately announced on social networks.

The Argentine president spoke forcefully to the world's political leaders and businessmen who have done so since last Monday gathered in the Swiss city to discuss what they considered to be key issues to face the future.

Without hesitation, Milei listed his concerns and accused world leaders of “abandoning the ideas of freedom,” which, in his view, only led to a spiral of poverty.

“Motivated by a sincere desire to help others or to belong to a privileged caste, the major leaders of the Western world have abandoned the ideas of freedom in favor of various versions of what we call collectivism.” We are here to say that they will never be the solution to the problems that citizens face. “On the contrary, they are their business.”

He then added that the state is financed through taxes that are collected compulsorily. He asked the audience: Do you pay taxes voluntarily? And he added: “The state finances itself through coercion, and the higher the tax burden, the greater the coercion.”

He criticized socialism and cited Argentina as an example of what this philosophical current can lead to. “Socialism is an impoverishing phenomenon that has failed in every country where it has been tried.” “It has failed economically, socially and culturally and has also murdered more than a hundred million people,” he added.

Milei wrote a historical review to justify free enterprise capitalism. And next the politician from the Davos elite, who described himself as an “anarcho-capitalist,” said: “With instruments such as monetary issues, subsidies, price controls or price regulations.” “You can control the fate of millions of people.”

“Whether they openly identify themselves as communists, fascists, Nazis, socialists, social democrats, national socialists, Christian democrats, Kenyans, progressives, populists or globalists. Basically there are no differences “They all claim that the state must regulate all aspects of an individual’s life.”

“Don’t be intimidated by the political caste or the parasites that live off the state. You are benefactors, you are heroes,” said Milei.
