We Need Electoral College

So why does the United States use the Electoral College to elect our presidents instead of the popular vote? Author, lawyer and Electoral College expert Tara Ross says that to understand the Electoral College is to understand American democracy. She explains and tells us why it matters in this edition of Prager University.

Profits a Good Thing

The single-most motivating factor for entrepreneurs worldwide is profit. “Profits motivate people to work hard for themselves and make life better for others,” says Walter Williams, professor of economics at George Mason University. But many loons across this fine nation still believe “profit” is a dirty word. Williams disagrees and explains why profits are progressive and beneficial to all in this edition of Prager University.

Do We Really Have Free Will?

Are we products of chemistry, physics and genetics, or do we actually have the free will to make decisions? The late Frank Pastore, former Major League Baseball pitcher and popular Christian-radio host, delves deeply into the answer to the question, which cuts to the heart of what it means to be human, in this edition of Prager University.

Customer’s Not Always Right

We’ve often heard the motto, “The customer’s always right.” But nationally syndicated, conservative talk show host Dennis Prager says that is wrong. He explains the customer has obligations, too, and should never take up the time of a salesperson if he or she knows beforehand that they are going to purchase an item somewhere else. Tune in to this edition of Prager University and listen to Prager’s logic.

Free Enterprise Helps the Poor

Perhaps one of the most popular myths surrounding free enterprise is that it hurts the poor. Wrong, says Arthur Brooks, social scientist and president of the American Enterprise Institute. The percentage of the world’s population living on the equivalent of less than $1 per day has fallen by more than 80 percent since the ’70s, Brooks says, and it’s not because of foreign aid, nor any other government handout. It’s because of free enterprise. “There has never been a force that comes close to helping the poor like free enterprise,” he says. Brooks debunks four other myths about free enterprise in this edition of Prager University.

Israel’s Plight in the West Bank

Renowned Harvard professor and legal scholar Alan Dershowitz tackles the sticky question: Are repeated Israeli settlements in the West Bank the sole barrier to peace in the Middle East? Dershowitz responds with a resounding, “No.!” Tune in to this edition of Prager University as Dershowitz argues his case.

Rules For a Moral World

Humanity has everything it needs to create a good world. And we’ve had it for 3,000 years in the form of 10 basic instructions called The Ten Commandments. Dennis Prager explains how the Commandments created Western civilization and remain relevant in today’s world in this edition of Prager University.

Minimum Wage Hike Kills Jobs

The New York Times, recognized around the planet as the bible of the progressive left, actually got it right back in 1987 when it editorialized that the perfect minimum wage was $0.00–zero! The Times opined that “the minimum wage is an idea whose time has passed.” Says David Henderson, editor of Concise Encyclopedia of Economics, “So economists and the liberal paper were on the same page. Why? Because they understood that a minimum wage does not guarantee jobs. It guarantees only that those who get jobs will be paid at least that minimum.” Henderson explains in this edition of Prager University that hiking the minimum wage might well lead to unintended consequences.

Christians the Most Persecuted

It might surprise you to learn who’s the most persecuted minority in the world today. It’s not any of the Muslim sects in Iraq, it’s not the Jews, but in fact the Christian people of the Middle East, especially those living in Muslim-majority countries. In the edition of Prager University, Middle East expert Raymond Ibrahim, author of The Al Qaeda Reader, lays out the grim details.

Who Are the Real Racists?

It’s a given that conservatives are accused by progressives on a daily basis as being racist. Amazingly, a large number of the attacks are coming from high-profile liberals, such as Oprah Winfrey, MSNBC’s Ed Schultz and Congressman Steve Israel. Are these accusers mostly foolish and stupid, or is it political posturing. Derryck Green of Project 21 analyzes the situation and provides some provocative answers in this edition of Prager University.
