Cultural Appropriation vs Reality

After watching the following Prager University video, you should come away with one thing stark realization – the “Woke” stand against cultural appropriation is all bull crap.

Will Witt is out and about, again on another college campus – this time adorned is his Halloween attire – a Chinese coolie outfit. Perpetually offended students hurled f-bombs and other expletives at Will as they demonstrated their sensitivity superiority.

Then Will, wearing the same outfit, bravely ventured into the heart of Chinatown and discovered something odd. Not a single soul was the least bit offended and many said they liked the outfit. Fascinating.

Maybe the Chinese in Chinatown are just too stupid to know they are being wrongly appropriated, or even know what it means, because they have a life.

Time Yet for the Flat Tax?

Taxes have become a big issue again in this election season. Every democrat on the ballet has a least one or two wacky schemes they claim are free. Free college, free healthcare, etc. But when pressed, they have to admit that taxes will be drastically raised to pay for for these plans.

And the reason they can get away with it is our progressive tax system.

I’ve been a proponent of the Steve Forbes Flat tax plan for decades. I even supported him in 1996 when he ran for president. One of my sons and I even met him on the campaign trail and had an hour-long conversation with him. very smart man.

It was then that I first heard of his flat tax idea, as he explained it to me in detail.

Well., he’s still pushing it and like then, it’s still a great idea.

Prager University thought so, as they asked Mr. Forbes to expound upon it for one of their famous short videos: read more

What to do About the National Debt

Brian Riedl for Prager University discusses the national debt – the fact that every year, like clockwork, it continues to grow.

No matter who is in the White House or who controls Congress and the Senate doesn’t seem to matter at all. Deficit spending continues to grow and the national debt continues to balloon.

And no one seems to care. read more

Truth is No Longer Reality

If you’ve ever spoken at length to a liberal, no doubt this has come up. It’s a relatively term, known as speaking one’s truth. Oh, it doesn’t have to be “the truth.” It rarely is. But somehow, that no longer seems to matter. I’ve personally been told that there is my truth, your truth and the truth.

There’s a head-scratcher!

Philosophy professor Paul Copan, for Prager University, discusses this very topic in the following video: read more

Got Socialism?

America found out long before we were a nation that socialism is an abject failure. In fact we had to discover it twice, the epic failure of socialism. First at Jamestown and then at the Plymouth colony. They found out the hard way. If not for capitalism, America may never have come into being.

But don’t take my word for it. History professor Larry Schweikart, for Prager University, gives a brief but concise accounting of pitfalls of socialism.

We’re Doomed if These Kids Represent the Next Generation

Will Witt for Prager University visited Cal State University – Northridge. He set up a table on campus and asked student passers-by to rank five figures throughout history from what they consider best to worst.

And the results, save for one or two, were catastrophically bad. Among the figures were of course Donald Trump, Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton. The kids were at least able to identify them. Yet many college aged kids could not identify Hitler, Stalin or Jesus. read more

A Visit to the Che Café

Be Cool and Ignorant just like Che-Z

Last week Will Witt for Prager University took a mike and camera to the University of California at San Diego, where he found himself at the Che Café.

Yes, the Che Café is a woke coffee shop, vegan restaurant and hang-out for the cool, hip and proletariat. Trump supporters are NOT welcome. Shocking!

And it’s full of students who are completely clueless about the deeds and beliefs of the Café’s namesake, one Che Guevara. Not a single student Will interviewed had any idea of what an unrepentant monster Che was.

So, before the video, let me just highlight some of Che Guevara’s brightest moments.

To see supposedly enlightened college students, especially black college students, walking around with Che’s face emblazoned on a t-shirt, is the height of stupidity. read more

Jocko Willink’s Keys to Success

Former SEAL Team leader Jocko Willink joins the Prager University team to discuss how taking the hard road in life is actually easier, in the long run, than venturing down the easy road, as the “easy” road will invariably lead to nothing more than a dead end.

He discusses how discipline actually equals freedom, and talks about his personal, three key principles to achieving success – Discipline vs Motivation, Humility vs. Arrogance and Taking Ownership of Everything vs. Making excuses.  read more

The Lie of Nordic Socialism Exposed

The left loves to trumpet the Nordic countries as socialist success stories. But as Dane, Otto Brons-Petersen explains, they couldn’t be more wrong. In some ways Denmark is less socialist than is the United States. I like to call the Nordics, cuddly capitalist countries. They’re private sector is free market capitalism, but they pay very high taxes to maintain the socialist type safety nets.

But Petersen explains that as we in the U.S. march further toward socialism, Denmark is fast rejecting it, returning things like social security to the private sector.

You Can’t Agree to Disagree with a Leftist

We’ve all the term, when at an impasse during a discussion, one turns to another and says: “Well then , I guess we must respectfully agree to disagree.” This respectful disagreement can happen when the people involved are both reasonable and have shared goals.

But as Owen Benjamin at Prager University explains, this new strain of radical leftists have no shared goals with the rest of us reasonable Americans. Therefore, it’s impossible to respectfully agree to disagree.
