Fix Your Unhappiness

Wishful thinking in our lives is usually a recipe for unhappiness. At least that’s the prognosis of radio talk show host, syndicated columnist and author Dennis Prager. It’s an affliction Prager calls “The Missing Tile Syndrome,” whereby we focus on the missing tiles in our lives instead of enjoying what we have. In this edition of Prager University, Prager shows us how to cure this malady.

Good Values vs. Feelings

Radio talk show host and author Dennis Prager analyzes the age-old question: What is the most important thing in life? Most of our answers fall into three categories–love, money and happiness. Prager contends all three of these things are crucial components in one’s lifetime, but not at the top of the heap. Prager suggests the most important thing in your life are good values. “Values are what you consider to be more important than anything else,” Prager says. “And above all, values are what you consider to be more important than your feelings.” He elaborates in this edition of Prager University.

Evil: Rational Or Irrational?

Nationally syndicated talk show host, author and columnist Dennis Prager poses the ever-perplexing question, “Is evil rational?” Or, he says, “Can we depend on reason alone to make the world a better place. Since the 18th century and dawning of the so-called Age of Reason, most of the best educated people in the world have been absolutely certain  that  reason alone will lead us to goodness and a good world. We don’t need a God, we don’t need religion, all we need is reason.” But Prager contends that the assumption that reason equals good is wishful thinking. He says the justification that reason might argue for being good, can also argue for doing evil. Check out this episode of Prager University as he further expands his thoughts.

Explaining Middle East Conflict

Political commentator Dennis Prager opines that the Middle East Conflict, which now has spanned many decades, is the hardest dilemma to solve. “But,” says Prager, “it’s the easiest to explain,” contrary to the general feeling among  political pundits. “In a nutshell, it’s this: One side wants the other side dead,” he says. “Israel wants to exist as a Jewish state and to live in peace. Israel also recognizes the right of Palestinians to have their own state and to live in peace. The problem, however, is that most Palestinians and many other Muslims and Arabs do not recognize the right of the Jewish state of Israel to exist. In this edition of Prager University, Prager elaborates.

Big Government Not the Answer

Since the beginning of time, it’s a proven fact that the bigger government grows, human freedom and happiness shrinks. In this edition of Prager University, best-selling author Dennis Prager puts it succinctly: “The more government, the more rules. The more rules, the less liberty.” Prager explains that this is not what our founding fathers had in mind.
