Show 1466 The End of School  Reclaiming Education from the Classroom

From The Tom Woods Show

Episode 623- The End of School  Reclaiming Education from the Classroom

Are schooling and education the same thing? No way, says Zachary Slayback, who encourages the cultivation of entrepreneurship skills in place of the passive experience of traditional schooling. Almost nothing we’ve come to believe about education goes unchallenged in this provocative discussion.

About the Guest

Zachary Slayback is co-founder and business development director of Praxis.

Show 1460 Prager University Part 16

Best-selling author and nationally syndicated radio talk show host, Dennis Prager, through an ever expanding curriculum of five minute courses taught by the finest faculty in the world, Prager University can give you the education you should have received. Tuition is voluntary.

 

How Big Should Government Be? Left vs. Right #1

How big should the government be? And what is its proper role in the daily lives of Americans? The Left and Right have opposite answers.

 

Does it Feel Good or Does it Do Good? Left vs. Right #2

When setting public policy, what's more important: intentions or results? Feeling good or doing good? When it comes to being guided by the heart or by the mind, the Left and Right are very different.

 

How Do You Judge America? Left vs. Right #3

Is the United States an exceptional country that has played a uniquely good role in history? Or is it a typical country, perhaps even a uniquely bad one considering the legacy of slavery and Jim Crow? On this, the Left and Right do not agree.

 

How Do You Deal With Painful Truths? Left vs. Right #4

The Left and Right perceive the world differently. One side sees it as it exists, accepts fundamental truths and facts--even if they are painful--and then adopts a worldview. The other side adopts a vision, and then views the world through that prism. Which side sees the world as reality? And which as it imagines?

 

How Do We Make Society Better? Left vs. Right #5

How do you want to improve America? By focusing on improving and refining yourself? Or by transforming society? The answer to that question will reveal whether you're on the Left or the Right.

 

Government: Is it Ever Big Enough?

Can the government ever be too big? How much spending is enough spending? And if there can be too much spending, where is that point? William Voegeli, Senior Editor of the Claremont Review of Books, explores these complex questions and offers some clear answers.

 

Who NOT to Vote For

Adam Carolla isn't going to tell you who to vote for. But he is going to tell you who NOT to vote for. And in a time when candidates running for office promise the moon, one of America's funniest comedians shares a few tips about how to spot the candidate that you should run from.

 

What is Crony Capitalism?

This election season there's a lot of talk about corruption, about politicians being "bought and sold", and about "crony capitalism". What do those terms mean? Why should we care? Is there a way to reduce corruption and restore our trust in government? Author Jay Cost, staff writer at The Weekly Standard, answers these questions and proposes a solution that every society could benefit from.

 

A Progressive's Guide to Political Correctness

Is there a point where the "P.C. Police" are satisfied? Are there ever "enough" rules governing the jokes we tell, the mascots of sports teams, or the symbols on city seals? Or should we want a society as non-offensive as the American college campus? George Will, Washington Post Pulitzer Prize-winning columnist, imagines what an idyllic politically correct universe would look like.

Highly Recommended by ACU

 

From Ken White-

The most powerful, concise, timely, and fearless defense of divinely inspired, constitutionally anchored, and divinely endowed rights and agency you've ever given.

 No doubt that Washington, Jefferson, and the rest were in the room smiling as you repaired to the standard they raised.

 May we likewise run to the standard of the constitution and the liberty protected therein.

 Well done Glenn.
