Millennial Voters and Public Schools

Written by Gary North on October 29, 2016

You may have seen this video. It’s a variation of Jay Leno’s “Jaywalking” segments, except that this is on a college campus. It gets worse.

Historiography and Destiny

Written by Gary North on October 22, 2016

“History is written by the victors.” You probably have read this statement. It’s true as far as it goes. But it misses the point. What is the point? The final victor. Who will be the final victor?

This tool isn’t free, but it has been a life-saver for me over the past year and is really inexpensive compared to other programs available online.

The Value of a College Degree

Written by Gary North on September 3, 2016

This is a really good presentation. He recommends apprenticeship. So do I. He recommends learning a skill. So do I. He recommends community colleges because the teaching is better. So do I. He does not recommend online accredited schools for under $15,000. He warns about the Ph.D. glut. I knew this was coming in 1966. […]
