Some videos are from libertarians who are minarchists (such as John Stossel, and his videos about the military are not included because of this) and defend there being SOME, though limited government. This is minarchism, and Larken Rose explains why this is faulty:
I have included a short video about roads where the man defends libertarianism/minarchism, and it is due to this continuous defense of any form of government whatsoever, even limited, that I am not, as I have repeated for many years, a libertarian, but an anarchist/voluntaryist.
Now, to answer the title question in brief:
Now, each one:
Healthcare and Military.

1. Healthcare.

Someone else pays for it = disaster:

2. Military/Defense.

Social Security, Roads.

3. Social Security.

4. Roads.

This is the video that advocates limited government, but makes the basic case of "fund it the same way, just privately" fairly well:
Well this all sounds great, but what prevents a monopoly forming on the free market? Then aren't you right back where you started?
Actually, you only get monopolies when you have government, per the monopoly on force, which creates systematic insensitivity to consumer demand, (since you can't fire the government (discussion)), systematic brainwashing (John Taylor Gatto), and perpetual complaining (with the assumption that if you don't vote you can't complain):
The only way that can be dismissed is via gaslighting, both by politicians, and fellow Stockholm Symdrome peers:

You got too many videos, just don't have time to watch them.
What I can tell you is that with private ownership of everything, you always end up with society that benefits those people who own everything. This is what you have in Capitalism (and before it, in Feudalism, and before it, in Monarchy, and we still have monarchies)
This is NOT a good system.
First of all, the whole planet and everything in it, is not created by any human, therefore no land or its natural resources should belong to any person or entity, it should belong to all of humanity, as well as wild life. We are part of the closed eco system as we all depend on one another.
Private ownership over time, has created a society of haves and not haves. Those who have the most got their wealth (land mostly at the time, gold etc) through looting, wars, colonialism and imperialism. That wealth is all STOLEN.
What made things worse is that all these people who owned everything, had control over the people who didn't have anything, they paid some people to defend them (police/military) and others were under their rule. This is still the case today, it is just hidden behind fake Democracies.
Those people who control all western government are monarchs and former Feudalists, slave owners, they are all Capitalists now.
With invent of Industrial revolution (which is not Capitalist system itself but a tool, a better more efficient way to produce things in greater quantity and for less cost) these people who owned everything used this system to exponentially increase their wealth even more, and with invention of computers and robots this is increased even more.
This type of system is called Free Market Capitalism, the term FREE doesn't mean freedom for the people, which sounds nice, it means freedom for the capitalists, to do as they want, with their hands untied, because without any government/law regulations they can do as they please, and that is exactly what they want and what they did.
Now, not all Capitalists are very evil people, but all richest capitalists are. They are psychopaths. They have so much wealth stolen over the generations, that they could single handedly solve problem of hunger and homelessness, but they don't. They don't care, they don't live in society with normal people, they live in circles of the extremely rich only.
So this type of system over time created more wealth inequality, and it does so because all the decision making about everything in the business, is done by the capitalists only. Workers have no way of say. Worker unions, the only way for workers to get their voice, are banned, and what this created is things like... the Great Depression.
Guess what saved it? Socialism.
The US government understood, which is what US government is not paying attention to now, when there is exact same repeat of the Great Depression, is that if the needs of the people are not met, the people will come and kill (in good ol' fashion Revolution) both the government and the capitalists... as that is what people and animals do when pushed into a corner. They bite and fight back.. and if people want to learn from history, they can, but they need to stop being ignorant and defending the interests of the rich capitalists, as doing so they are undermining the very social balance, which is not sustainable.
During the Great Depression, government said, "hey you need to allow us to tax you way more (90%)" and they had no choice but to agree, if they didn't heads would start falling, like in France and Russia. Things improved, government used the money from taxing the rich and people were provided much needed jobs. When capitalists only hoard money they extracted when economy as booming, and they nicely profited from workers productivity, at the peak of the cycle, which is also another character of the capitalist economy which works in booms and busts cycles, you get into bust cycle, when the rich don't want to invent any more, they don't want to "provide jobs" and "help people" and in that situation, they wait for economy to collapse (this is by design, its their desired effect) so that when everyone is desperate and everything is sold 10c for a $1 value, they come in looking like rescuers and buy out even more wealth for cheap... rinse ad repeat, this is what has been happening in Capitalist economy for the last 2 centuries.
This is not a sustainable system as it benefits only 1 part of the society, which again, we are all part of, and we as humans are part of an eco system, closed eco system, which means if minority owns more and more land and assets and natural resources, which is what they buy out when its cheap, when its a depression, and sell to people in smaller pieces when its in boom cycle and expensive (then confiscate and buy out for cheap again when people can't afford their property or business goes bust because big guys attack it using all sorts of economic tactics).
This is why we need an economic system, which is system of production which is in the interest of the workers, Workers represent vast majority of the people, their families and communities (not the term COMMUNITY, which is how COMMUNISM is derived from.. and term CAPITAL which is what CAPITALISM is derived from) so when system is working for their collective interest it serves the interest of the society and not some small rich minority.
Monarchies need to be abolished, private property should not exist, it should be abolished, we are all owners of this planet as no one created it. Only private property should be what you create yourself, from your own work, nothing more, nothing less.
Work should be rewarded and not ownership. me buying out an established business and getting income from work which other people do and not me, is exploitation. I am not such person and most people are not with such personality either. But some are, and the worse personality these people have, the less they care about how their greedy self interest affects the people and society, these people use their extreme wealth to undermine and corrupt all parts of society, government included.
I cannot understand why, when me and others (like Prof Richard Wolff, professor of economics, who has 3 degrees in economy, and he went to best schools in the US, and he was never actually even required to study Socialism or Communism, these are his own words, that is just how bad "education" is in Capitalist US which has been corrupted completely in every shape and form) explain this, which is not too hard to understand, explanation of chain of events and actual historical events (we are meant to learn from past events, adjust out understanding of things, and not just stick to some pre-made definitions and explanations which say Capitalism will do one thing, while history has shown us to do something completely different and in many ways, complete opposite to what was promised.
Owning something is not work
Capitalist just owns a business, which is not work.
And again, connecting this to Bitcoin PoW, how can people not see that in PoW mining, rewards only come from work done at the time, to people who do the work of mining only, and rewards stop as soon as mining stops.
If you took same principle, if capitalist was to start a business, and do all the work himself, he should get all the rewards he gets from selling products he made. If he stops making products, rewards stop also. But what if the capitalist outsorces his work to other person? In this case capitalist will pay less to the other person, sell the same product and make profits for doing no work on his own, because he will take the excess of the rewards that was produces by the worker, when the product was sold. Add more workers, which capitalist now does from re-investing the profits he got from the first worker, and keep repeating the same, and before you know it, business has many workers, all of them produce all the wealth, and capitalist now has lot more rewards going to him, and he still does no work himself.
How is this same as to PoW principle? It is not.
This is what PoS principle is, which is what Capitalism (and Feudalism) is based on.
Also Feudalism and Capitalism are very much the same thing, they are based on exact same principles, which is private ownership of land and factories, only difference is type of workplace, one is a farm based production where people with no land have no choice but to work as they own no land themselves, and other is factory based production, again where other people work as they don't have factories themselves.
This system is not sustainable, because over time people are getting more and more pushed into corner, new technology is replacing human work now, what do you think millions and millions of people without work are going to do? I tell you what... they will go and attack, eat and kill, the rich, and people in government that have been corrupted by the rich.
So when are e going to learn and change the course of action? Why do we have people with hundreds of billions and even trillions, while we have people with nothing? How can anyone defend these rich, and even call them hard working (because some of them worked bit hard for a shirt time, year or two, to START a business, then offload their hard work onto others while making a killing for themselves) while calling the poor people, even those who do work full time jobs, as greedy?
Whoever things like this, is sociopath, and highly brainwashed individual.

I forgot... things that whole society needs (health cover, education, infrastructure, military, police) should all be publicly owned and run businesses, and they should not be for profit.
This not only works better and provides basic human rights to everyone, it is actually cheaper to do it this way, workers get better pay, which helps their families and communities, which unlike extremely rich money hoarders, always spend their money which means it goes back into circulation, which means products are bought, which means their standard of living is better, which is how you get true growth for everyone, and not just for the small minority.

@ED That's a perspective I see a lot here in the United States. But if capitalism can exist under feudalism and monarchy, then capitalism is a system different from government. Therefore, it's a fallacy to conclude society's transition as a monarchy -> feudalism (basically monarchy) -> capitalism. It was the movement of imperialism that utilized capitalism to undermine other regimes.
In fact, the fall of feudalism was through the introduction of contracted militias and mercenaries for hire.

Imperialism is conquering of other nations, its not an economic system. An Economic system, which is what Capitalism is, is structure of ownership (and what gives it decision making power) of means of production (businesses). Monarchy, Feudalism, Capitalism, all have economies, in Monarchy the whole country/state is under one ruler, the monarch, and monarch makes all laws, which everyone has to follow, including people who produce things and own things.
Feudalism is type of economic system where most economy was based on farming, it was a system of private ownership of land (which is where other people who had no land, worked and for land owner allowing them to use his/her land, had to pay some fees to the land owner, which is what made the land owner have an income.
This is repeated in Capitalism, which works exactly the same as Feudalism, only difference is where people work, no longer on farms, now in factories. Still private ownership etc, so in principle nothing changed.
So reason capitalist nations like US are imperialist, is because their society is run by and controlled by the top richest capitalist, who have the most money. The whole society is structured and highly brainwashed, to follow money only, to respect money above everything else, which is how materials, consumerism and imperialism took hold of the whole society, and using military, those capitalists wanted more share of the global market and control over it, which is why capitalism has been spreading over the past 2 centuries.
So the economic system is system of production, imperialism existed in all of these systems as all of these systems have small minority rule over the masses, and as all people naturally look after their own interests and not others (their family is usually an exemption, close family at least) that small minority will look after their own interests only, which means it will be at the expense of the masses, and this is what happened in all 3 systems. Small minority, of TOP ECONOMIC CLASS wants and has been, ruling over others, and we still have this today.
The only way to change this and stop imperialism, is to change the very economic system which drives the systematic income (for no work of their own) is to no longer use (and this needs a mindset change by all of the people who do work as it is in their/our interest to do this) a system where minority has decision making control over others... and Capitalism still has this (Capitalist, aka the business owner(s) makes all decisions as they have a financial state in the business, and even though workers have other types of stakes in their workplace, like energy, needing the income to pay off a house, etc, interests of the workers are not important to the business owner and business owner will always only hire other people IF there is more money for him to extract).
So, military was always privately owned force, monarch had it, feudalists had it, capitalist have it, only its just hidden in plain sight, there is the "Democratic" state in between to act as a curtain to hide the fact that capitalists control the state, which controls the military... so military from US has always been in wars not for defensive purpose of the nation and the people, but for the personal interests of these business owners.. the capitalists.

@-ED- Whoa, capitalism does not determine who owns what. It merely describes the act of trading what is subjectively less value for what is valued higher. (a person invests his money to receive equity in a promising startup). None of that has to do with government. Government only find ways to tax this act, but govn't is not responsible for capitalism.

The concept of private property is empirically validated based on the idea of self-ownership. The government is not the one who birthed the concept of capitalism. Actually, the rules in capitalism apply to govn't, too, as government is also an organization offering a service: a service of protection.

It was always going on as people throughout history have traded even before the creation of government. Economics and governance are two different subjects.

@-ED- There was nothing that was laissez-faire in Feudalism. The kingdom owned the land that you resided in, and you were forced to serve the state in times of war. You were forced to submit and worship your nobles and lords. Private property was ignored and instead extorted from people.

@Syndrome1004 oh but all economic systems have everything to do with ownership... slavery (owns people, and all their work), Feudalism (owns land & work of farmers), Capitalism (owns factories/businesses & work of workers) are all based on PRIVATE ownership.
Communism is first system thought out to be based on common/public/social ownership, which is exactly why the Monarch & Capitalists (Feudalists would also if they still existed, or maybe they do, they just different name... hint: Capitalism) fight the rise of Communism and why they fight against the working class people to overthrow their systems where they benefit... but of course people are told some other things, to mislead the people, which is what most people believe today is true.. but its not.
That is TRUE reality of things... Communism is all about fight against economic class which are created through use and abuse of economic system we have to day, and those used in the past.

@-ED- Any of those systems can be explained using private property as your semantics. There's a form of shared private property called joint ownership. Community-owned property would qualify as joint ownership. You're just stumbling over semantics, is all. Really, socialism would like to throw out the semantics of ownership, because it ends up confusing people too much. But a socialist society is intended to function as any normal one would. It's not supposed to be magic.

@Syndrome1004 semantics is what made people brainwashed. People that made/designed these systems is so that it benefits them, then told everyone else some idea which is just not true, reason they did that (and are still doing so) is simple, if they told the truth about it, people wouldn't think its good and support it in the first place... as then they would know that it won't and doesn't work for them.
Socialism is not an economic system, its political ideology, thought of as a response to Capitalism (and industrialisation, which changed the way things are produced radically, but then only made things worse because all production was privately owned).
Socialism wouldn't be needed if the very economic system was balanced so that it works for the majority, not the minority. You only need something to counter something else, if the something else is not balanced int he first place.
Capitalism is an economic system which is not balanced, so as first stage to getting transition into a balanced economic system (which capitalism in its form doesn't provide, never has and never will) sound counter balance was/is needed, but if the very economic system was to be changed, and for this we need people all over the world to want this in the first place, then you wouldn't need any counter balancing of it.
This is basic principles explained in Physics, and we as humans are not immune to it.

@-ED-
I would say it has to do with confusing the context of an idea, it will lead people to do radical things. Those systems are not created by man, they're a natural part of mother nature in making sure ecosystems are in balance. Debt is a real factor in game theory, and game theory plays a huge part in economics.
Maybe general discussion on politics should focus only on who is responsible for collecting debt and the topic of debt itself. That can be people each with their own title depending on what political structure you're living under.

@Syndrome1004 and you are the one that fell for the propaganda narrative that was created to confuse you and everyone else, to not understand what the underlying idea (and principle) is to each and every one of these systems, and to make you focus on their narrative only. Politics is acting, its lying, politicians are all in hands of the rich, the rich who are controlling the politics and pulling all the strings are all the ones who understand this, and regular people don't its because regular people only see the surfaced descriptions and not the underlying working principles and WHY something was created to work certain way.
World is divided into economic classes, and this is why these systems are created, to maintain this divide of power, and to keep the sheeple in line and under their control. It is only when the sheeple are pushed into a corner where they have no place to go, that the sheeple rebel and create a revolution... and sadly this has not happened yet on global scale, when it happens in some part of the world the rich have enough power to undermine and attack this movement for change, economically and militarily.
Rich are rich because they exploit working people, they do so systematically, this is why these systems exist and why they defend it at all cost, why you are never even allowed to question the Capitalist economic system, why they always find some other reason and people to blame it on (immigrants, Commies, Socialists, etc) and they never want you to focus on their own dirty deeds.
Reason for poverty in this day and age where we have all the tech to provide for everyone, is the mentality of the people, the very economic system used, which created and still creates ever increasing wealth inequality.
This system created Great Depression, people demanded government taxt the rich and they did, if they didn't revolution against Capitalism would have happened right then in America.. and so the revolution was postponed, Capitalism remained, but Socialism took place also and it had undone a lot of crap that free market (meaning unregulated) Capitalism has created, and even since this was started to be reversed back towards free market capitalism (government letting them doing what they want, removing regulations), and we are back to where world was in early 1920's & 30's... and guess what... people are asking for Socialism again... but only way to solve the very root of the problem is to change the economic system itself as this is where it all starts... and change it so that you no longer have minority control and own means of production in which they don't even work, and so that you have WORKERS control and own means of production. Such system has built in natural mechanism which prevents anyone from getting too wealthy, in which case no one can have enough power (using their wealth) to undermine and manipulate government and markets... and that system is called Communism (but again, capitalists created propaganda against it, which is why hardly anyone understands any of this).
I'm done here, I have nothing more to say
