Today we are witnessing the consequence of a country that has drifted to the left ideologically. The vast majority of people are ignorant on the foundations of freedom and the foundations of liberty.
So, how do we remedy this illness?
Yaron Brook, in his talk at The Heartland Institute’s Author Speaker Series, says the foundation of any liberty campaign should be that of education. He says that as long as the American people remain ignorant, political change is impossible.
Along with education about economics, the foundations of liberty and freedom, and the principles that founded the United States, Brook believes- as he’s spoken about many times- that there must also be a serious moral and ethical revolution in order to change the country. People must stop accepting principles of sacrifice and altruism.
Brook tells his audience to “get energized” because it’s going to be a long and drawn-out campaign for the coming decades.
