The Debt Dialogues [Episode 31]: Don Watkins on the Debt Draft

The Debt Dialogues is a weekly podcast that aims to educate young people about the welfare state and how it will affect their future. In this episode, you’ll hear my recent talk “End the Debt Draft: How the Welfare State Is Exploiting Millennials.” I also explain why we’ve missed a few episodes and when we’ll return to our regular schedule.

Topics covered include:

  • The three reasons people support the welfare state
  • The truth behind Social Security’s “trust fund”
  • Why the welfare state was created
  • Why young people are the biggest victims of old-age welfare state programs
