There are two problems with this:

(1) If I say, “A monopoly institution based on violence makes things worse,” that doesn’t mean, “The absence of such an institution implies paradise.” You might as well say, “Whoa ho ho, you claim to hate dictatorships? Well there weren’t any dictators around during the Mesozoic era, I guess you want to hang with the brontosauruses?”

(2) The video is neglecting the difference in travel costs from Nashville to Somalia versus Nashville to Florida. Apples to oranges. Just silly, really.
