Description

We take the best ideas from the best minds and distill them down to five focused minutes. We then add graphics and animation to create the most persuasive, entertaining, and educational case possible for the values that have made America and the West the source of so much liberty and wealth. These values are Judeo-Christian at their core and include the concepts of freedom of speech, a free press, free markets and a strong military to protect and project those values.

Capitalism Wins

Capitalism Wins

2021-02-0805:371

More and more, it seems people find it difficult to defend capitalism—even those who benefit from it most. But former US Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley takes a refreshingly different view: she thinks we should double down on it. Here’s why.
The cost of producing electricity has dropped significantly in the last decade. So why haven’t we seen those price drops reflected in our electricity bills? Charles McConnell, former Assistant Secretary of Energy in the Obama Administration, answers this riddle.
No Past, No Future

No Past, No Future

Can we judge the past by the standards of the present? Many seem intent on proving not only that we can, but that we must. Social critic Douglas Murray doesn’t agree, and he explains why in this thought-provoking video.
Do you know what’s going on in your kid’s school? The three R’s – reading, writing, and arithmetic – have taken a back seat to a fourth R. Max Eden, Senior Fellow at the Manhattan Institute, explains what that fourth R is, and why it’s so destructive.

You hear lots of dire predictions these days -- the planet is burning, the seas are rising, and so on. But what is the real purpose of all this doom and gloom? Is it to protect the environment? Or is there a different motive? Rogan O’Handley, aka DC Draino, gets to the bottom of these questions in this important video.
How can a simple blood test cost $30 at one lab and $300 at another across the street? The answer to this question could save billions, as well as make healthcare more accessible and affordable for everyone. Will Bruhn, co-founder of Restoring Medicine, explains.
How do those on the Left determine right from wrong? Since Marx, they’ve relied on a formula based on status, skin color, and wealth. But is that the way to reach a moral conclusion? Dennis Prager uses Israel and the United States to provide an illuminating perspective on this question.
In August of 2019, the New York Times published the 1619 Project. Its goal is to redefine the American experiment as rooted not in liberty but in slavery. In this video, Wilfred Reilly, Associate Professor of Political Science at Kentucky State University, responds to the 1619 Project’s major claims.
It wasn’t an accident that the first amendment to the Constitution is about religious liberty. Why was it so important to the Founders? And why should it be just as important to you? Kelly Shackelford, President of First Liberty, explains.
Selina Soule was one of the top five female high school sprinters in Connecticut... until competing against biological boys changed the game. Now, women aren’t just losing their races — they’re losing their chances to compete at all. Why is this happening? And what should we do about it?
If you truly want to save the planet from global warming, there’s one energy source that can do it. It’s not wind or solar. It’s not coal, oil or natural gas, either. So what is it? Michael Shellenberger, founder of Environmental Progress, has the answer in this important video.

Defining Liberty

The Framers wrote the Constitution to protect the liberty of American citizens. But what exactly did “liberty” mean to them? More importantly, what should it mean to you? Eugene Volokh, professor of constitutional law at UCLA, explores this important issue.
What is the difference between free-market capitalism and democratic socialism? And which system is actually more fair and responsive to the needs of the people? Here’s a hint: names can be deceiving. Dinesh D’Souza has the answers.

What’s the best way to protect the rights of workers? Let them determine their own job preferences, or mandate that companies provide them with certain protections? California has chosen to take the latter path. Has it worked? Is it a victory for workers, or a debilitating defeat? Patrice Onwuka of the Independent Women’s Forum looks into these questions. Her findings may surprise you.
What do Democratic Socialists like Bernie Sanders and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez want America to look like? They say they want America to emulate Scandinavian countries like Denmark and Sweden. But do their proposed policies reflect that? Or do they point down a darker path? Debbie D’Souza, a native Venezuelan and political commentator, investigates.

My grandmother came from a large, poor family. And they still shared what they had with traveling, poor, black people. Before she died she was a much better off than at the start of her life, but she still shared what she had no matter what the skin color. It's character and attitude that makes a person great not where or who they're born.

Women want more than equality . Like some are more equal than others ! Both men & women are responsible for the mess we have in society. Was it like it is today in early last century ? I think things were just fine. That is the culture I grew up admiring when I grew up in India ! Today I am thoroughly disappointed in general with American society. Look at some Elite lady politicians who I do not want to mention ! They are a disgrace to their peers !

So much for Freedom & Democracy in the country that gave almost everything in culture to the world ! I who am not a citizen but raised my children to appreciate everything good in America, am terribly disappointed in which direction America is headed. God bless America and protect it from all Evil ! The Amendments ? Which ?

Interesting comments by Mr. Paul Johnson . His advice to young people is good but he had to say one more thing ! Be disciplined in everything and everything will fall into place and the world will be a better place !

They have their own ideas. They also have a lot of experts and valid info. Everything else is so biased towards the left and this is why this is so out there. You don't have to agree with everything they say, but it is important to educate yourself on both sides. Listen and take from it what you will. Even if you disagree with their world view there is surley still valuable logic and information to gain. It is good to challenge they way you think in order to expand your mind and reevaluate what you think you know. Thank you Prager U for being truthful and open, not being afraid to defend America that our fathers fought so hard to preserve.

I really don't think all these people that are screaming for "free health care" know that they actually have to pay for it.
