Why The Right Is Not The Solution

The dominance of the political Left in public discourse, and the resulting phenomena of ‘wokeness’ and ‘cancel culture’, has led to a backlash: a new political Right that fights back and is all-in on the culture wars. But can this new Right actually be an ally to those who care about freedom and capitalism? Is it the lesser of two evils and a potential fellow traveller for the liberty movement?

Why Bad Ideas Won’t Go Away?

The history of the Left is a series of failures, blood and misery—and yet, in the present, socialism is considered trendy and idealistic, particularly among the youth. On the other end, the Right has reared its ugly head in trying to counter the Left, and we have an increasingly popular new Right that is increasingly nationalistic and authoritarian. But why is it that these sets of ideas are only growing in popularity, and have become the two predominant political forces in today’s culture? Why do bad ideas have so much staying power? And what will it take to overturn their momentum in the culture?

Yaron Brook

Equal is Unfair

We’re told that the gap between the poor and the rich has widened. Many decry the “injustice” of income and wealth inequality. But is it actually a problem and are the proposed remedies truly just? What is a fair “distribution” of income and wealth? Yaron Brook takes on these and related issues and argues that a genuinely laissez-faire capitalist society is, in fact, the only system of fairness, that is, justice.

Yaron Brook

The Morality of Capitalism

"Rejecting previous attempts to defend the self-interested nature of markets—including Adam Smith’s famous “invisible hand” theory—Ayn Rand defined a whole new way of thinking about self-interest and, in doing so, provided an indispensable moral foundation for free markets. In this talk, Yaron Brook delves into the morality of finance, free markets, savings, insurance and using debt to fund consumption. Through this talk, Brook will explore the pursuit of capitalist motives and why capitalism is indeed moral. "
