CrossTalk: Varsity Blues

Most of us are taught and believe that we live in a society based on merit and equal justice. The Varsity Blues college admissions scandal informs us that neither are true. The rich and privileged can buy access for their kids at the expense of families who are hard-working and honest. Is the idea of merit dead?

CrossTalking with Lionel, Remington A. Gregg, and Richard Vedder.

CrossTalk: Enforced Speech

Not long ago the political left were the guardians of free speech. Along with tech tyrants, the left today has gone from protecting speech to enforcing speech. Even to the point of penalizing you if you say the wrong thing in public. You can lose your job and livelihood. Welcome to the era of simply ‘shut up and nod.’

CrossTalk: Anti-Trump Crusade

CrossTalk: Media Humiliated

Trust in the mainstream media is at an all-time low. But no one should be surprised and the media has itself to blame. This sad state of affairs is a self-inflicted wound and actually a conscious business model. The media no longer has an interest in reporting news – media today propagates ideology.
