Let'S go to nikolas nikolas, so i'm a college student here in new york city studying business and on today's college campuses. It'S so hard to bring republican ideas such as capitalism, to a debate without being either shouted down, are called a slew of slurs. So how do we ensure that students in our universities and colleges across the country, especially here in cities as liberal as new york, ar ...
able to learn the real differences between capitalism and socialism and the benefits capitalism has brought to america through its first 243 years of Existence i've spent a lifetime preaching to do exactly that. To have the university be a place where the ideas of capitalism can be defendedby. People who believe in it and the ideas of socialism can be defended and put forward by people who believe in it. But in ninety percent of the colleges of the united states in economics, which is the field i know there are people loads of people who love and celebrate capitalism and know people who celebrate socialism. Let me give you myself as an example, because herman here has given himself as an example i was born in ohio. Parents had absolutely nothing. I ended up for a long long story. I ended up going out to harvard as an undergraduate to stanford in the middle, and i finished the yale i'm like a poster boy for eliteeducation in this country right at no time in my education, ten years in the ivy league. Did anyone stand in front of me and give an argument for why socialism was advantageous or good? I heard countless debates among people who loved capitalism disagreed about this or that, but the presumption was. This is the best system since sliced bread.

This is all you need to know, and the alternative is nothing you have to worry about right, given that, of course, it's hard for socialism to get a hearing, but your situation is the very, very scarcest reality. The one i described is, unfortunately, the bad legacy of the cold war. We still it's all due respect. Richardi want to bring kennedy in, because this is not the first time. I'Ve heard this. In fact, i've heard it from thousands and thousands of young adults in colleges across this country. Yes, and it's not just. We have to divorce ourselves from the idea of a two-party system and i'm sure that you would agree. You know you kind of rail against the the democrat party and the establishment, and it's this extreme bifurcation, but they really have so much in common that they do such a great disservice to so many people. So, instead of thinking in terms of republican and democrat, i like to think in terms of freedom and and that's you know that ismuch more libertarian. That is much more of a libertarian liberty and compasses philosophy. And when you talk about freedom, you tend to be much more inclusive because you're talking to individuals you're, not just trading up into two separate groups where it's, we instantly hate you and i think it's good that you're getting a degree in business, because it means that You will have some practical application of that degree.

There are a lot of degrees, like my degree in philosophy, doesn't necessarily translate to the workplace. It helped me organize my thoughts. I probably could have done that in my own, but i liked being in a university setting. So for the vast majority of people whoare languishing in college, which are propaganda, factories that are run by leftists, who want to indoctrinate people, [ applause, ], save your money, don't necessarily go to college until you know what you want to study, i didn't go to college Until i was 28 years old, i had had to pers in broadcasting and radio and television and it wasn't until i i knew what i wanted to do and pour myself into it completely. But i went and got a scholarship to ucla go bruins.
