LIVESTREAM | CCA III: The Inklings | January 30 – February 2, 2022 [Video]

C.S. Lewis and J.R.R. Tolkien wrote some of the twentieth century’s most beloved works of literature, including robust defenses of the Christian faith. Together with Charles Williams, Owen Barfield, and others, Lewis and Tolkien were members of an informal professor-student literary group at Oxford in the 1930s and 40s known as the Inklings. This third CCA of the 2021-22 academic year will examine the philosophical, theological, and literary ideas that bound the Inklings, their understanding of the relationship of myth and reality, and the continuing importance of their thought and writings today.https://www.hillsdale.edu/event/cca-iii-the-inklings/Support Hillsdale College: https://secured.hillsdale.edu/hillsdale/support-hillsdale-collegeVisit our website: http://hillsdale.eduLearn from our online courses: http://online.hillsdale.eduRead Imprimis: https://imprimis.hillsdale.edu/Undergraduate programs: https://www.hillsdale.edu/information-for/undergraduate-admissions/Graduate School of Statesmanship: https://www.hillsdale.edu/academics/graduate-school/Graduate School of Government: https://dc.hillsdale.edu/School-of-Government/Program-Overview/Listen to Hillsdale Dialogues Podcast: http://blog.hillsdale.edu/online-coursesHillsdale College is an independent institution of higher learning founded in 1844 by men and women “grateful to God for the inestimable blessings” resulting from civil and religious liberty and “believing that the diffusion of learning is essential to the perpetuity of these blessings.” It pursues the stated object of the founders: “to furnish all persons who wish, irrespective of nation, color, or sex, a literary, scientific, [and] theological education” outstanding among American colleges “and to combine with this such moral and social instruction as will best develop the minds and improve the hearts of its pupils.” As a nonsectarian Christian institution, Hillsdale College maintains “by precept and example” the immemorial teachings and practices of the Christian faith.The College also considers itself a trustee of our Western philosophical and theological inheritance tracing to Athens and Jerusalem, a heritage finding its clearest expression in the American experiment of self-government under law.By training the young in the liberal arts, Hillsdale College prepares students to become leaders worthy of that legacy.

Cody Wilson Thwarts Another Attempt To Stop Ghost Guns [Video]

The ATF is expected to adopt a new rule requiring that the metal parts hobbyists used to manufacture their DIY weapons be registered as legal firearms. So Cody Wilson made those parts unnecessary.Full text, links, and credits: https://reason.com/video/2022/01/12/cody-wilson-thwarts-another-attempt-to-stop-ghost-guns/——————Subscribe to our YouTube channel: https://www.youtube.com/ReasonTVLike us on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/Reason.Magaz​​​ineFollow us on Twitter: https://twitter.com/reason​​​Reason is the planet’s leading source of news, politics, and culture from a libertarian perspective.

The deposit is $500, and the final sales price is $2,500 before shipping. The text has been updated to correct the error.The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) is expected to adopt a new rule in the coming weeks with the potential to undermine the DIY gun industry: It will require that the metal parts that hobbyists used to manufacture their so-called ghost guns be registered as legal firearms.Cody Wilson, the founder of the Austin-based Defense Distributed and a prominent figure in the DIY gun movement, has been planning a countermove that he says will allow his customers to circumvent the new rule: The company has modified its* home milling machine so that users no longer need to load it with the partially fabricated metal parts subject to the new rule.Instead, they’ll be able start from scratch with a solid block of aluminum.The newest version of the Ghost Gunner, a milling machine that’s roughly the size of home printers, will now be able to “take raw materials…in their primordial state…and turn them into guns,” Wilson tells Reason. Blocks of aluminum will not be subject to the new regulation.It’s not the first time the federal government has tried to undermine Wilson’s business. In 2013, the State Department ordered him to take down plans posted to his website for his first 3D-printed gun, the Liberator. Wilson sued on First Amendment grounds, which led to a 2018 settlement with federal government, a media firestorm, and a 9th Circuit Court injunction against states trying to ban sharing of the files in 2021.The new 100-page administrative rule issued by the ATF, which was published to the Federal Register in May 2021 for public review, will change the definition of a firearm to encompass “weapon parts kit[s]…designed to or [which] may readily be assembled, completed, converted, or restored.”If adopted, it will mean that the federal government will require gun part kits sold online to bear the same serial numbers as do fully manufactured firearms, which could put most companies in the space out of business because customers won’t want to deal with the bureaucratic hurdles of registering their parts.Wilson says that Defense Distributed is the only DIY gun company pivoting in the face of the upcoming rule, so its real impact will be to drive his competitors off the market. Biden is “giving us, the nation’s premier ghost gun company, a monopoly of the market,” Wilson says.*CORRECTION: The original version of this article stated that the Ghost Gunner sells for $500.

How Biden’s Agenda Is Causing Inflation [Video]

Too Many (Government) Dollars Are Chasing Too Few Goods.——————Subscribe to our YouTube channel: https://www.youtube.com/ReasonTVLike us on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/Reason.Magaz​​​ineFollow us on Twitter: https://twitter.com/reason​​​Reason is the planet’s leading source of news, politics, and culture from a libertarian perspective. Go to reason.com for a point of view you won’t get from legacy media and old left-right opinion magazines.—————-The Consumer Price Index (CPI) tracks the cost of everyday items. It’s jacked up a whopping 6.8 percent over the past year, the biggest increase in almost 40 years. Gas is up 51 percent, beef is up 20 percent, and furniture by 11 percent.This is making the nightly news sound a little too much like a rerun of That ’70s Show, a sitcom set in a decade famous for ever-rising prices and useless “Whip Inflation Now” buttons that Gerald Ford tried to stick on everybody from running mate Bob Dole to former Beatle George Harrison.Back in the 1970s, Ford was better known for literally and figuratively stumbling than for his economic acumen, especially when it came to inflation, which soared into double digits shortly after he took office. Ford believed that the way to beat inflation was to browbeat companies into keeping prices down and Americans into becoming bargain hunters. He declared a war on high prices, referring to inflation as “domestic enemy number one.””I pledge to my fellow citizens that I will buy, when possible, only those products and services priced at or below present levels,” promised Ford.Joe Biden is looking reminiscent of the 38th president, and not simply because he also has trouble with airplane steps.Biden, his advisers, and his champions in the press are ignoring the tough lessons of the past by downplaying inflation or bizarrely claiming it only freaks out rich people. Then there’s leading Democrats like Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D–Mass.), who seemed to be channeling Gerald Ford when she tweeted out that the reason “your Thanksgiving groceries cost more this year” was “because greedy corporations are charging Americans extra just to keep their stock prices high.”Even worse, Biden and crew are delusionally pronouncing that we can tame inflation by pumping massive amounts of government money into the economy—a course of action that will almost certainly make everything more expensive. “What this package will do is lower some of the most important costs, what [families] pay for health care, for child care. It’s anti-inflationary in that sense,” said Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen in defense of the recently passed $1.2 trillion infrastructure bill and promises of even-bigger bills related to the president’s “Build Back Better” agenda.What Ford, Biden, Warren, and Yellen have in common is a failure to understand inflation’s most important underlying cause, which the Nobel Prize–winning economist Milton Friedman was explaining with unique clarity back in the 1970s. “To understand the cause of inflation, you must understand that it is anywhere and everywhere a monetary phenomenon,” said Friedman. Supply-chain issues and rising demand are factors too, but the biggest contributors come from the government and the Federal Reserve. We’ve seen absolutely massive increases in government spending over the past two years, which have been paid for by printing money and historic boosts in the money supply. When you print money it means that there are more dollars chasing basically the same amounts of goods and services, which causes prices to rise. In just the past three fiscal years, federal spending has swollen to nearly $7 trillion a year, up from about $4.4 trillion in fiscal year 2019. Spending was $6.6 trillion in 2020, and $6.8 trillion in 2021.Back in the ’70s, Friedman likened the early stages of inflation to alcoholism. Politicians get to spend more money, tax revenues increase without passing new legislation, and some consumers feel like they are gaining purchasing power as their wages go up. “Inflation is just like alcoholism,” he warned. “In both cases, when you start drinking or when you start printing too much money, the good effects come first and the bad effects come only later. That’s why in both cases there’s a strong temptation to overdo it, to drink too much and to print too much money.”Here’s a final insult: Even the price of booze is going up, so not only will we have more sorrows, it’s going to cost us more to drown them.Produced by Nick Gillespie; video editing and graphics by Adani Samat; audio mixing by Ian KeyserVideo: Excerpts from Milton Friedman Speaks: Money and Inflation (1978) and Free to Choose (198) courtesy of Free to Choose Network.Music: Grey Shadow by ANBR and Temptation by Ride Free licensed through Artlist.

Do Kids Really Need To Wear Masks at School? [Video]

“We essentially reorganized our society around the control of a single infectious disease, when in fact, health is plural,” says Stanford professor of health policy Jay Bhattacharya.Full text, links, and credits: https://reason.com/video/2021/12/28/do-kids-really-need-to-wear-masks-at-school/——————Subscribe to our YouTube channel: https://www.youtube.com/ReasonTVLike us on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/Reason.Magaz​​​ineFollow us on Twitter: https://twitter.com/reason​​​Reason is the planet’s leading source of news, politics, and culture from a libertarian perspective. Go to reason.com for a point of view you won’t get from legacy media and old left-right opinion magazines.—————-Should kids have to wear masks at school? And, if so, for how long?Eighteen states require kids—in some cases as young as age 2—to mask all day in class, and nine states have banned school districts from requiring masks.In July, Republican Governor Ron DeSantis issued an executive order banning mask mandates in Florida school districts, writing that “a right to normal education is imperative to the growth and development of our children and adolescents.” DeSantis was influenced by parents like Tina Descovich, a former member of Florida’s Brevard County School Board and co-founder of Moms for Liberty, which has 160 chapters and more than 70,000 members nationwide.”We support parental choice in masking, always,” Descovich tells Reason. “We believe a parent has the ultimate authority…the fundamental right to guide and direct the upbringing, the medical care and the education of their children.”Descovich says mask requirements have driven parental engagement to a level that she’s never seen before, and that many have come to her with photos of their kids’ faces with MRSA and infantigo, which are types of staph infections. Their concerns are very practical she says. “These parents are not out for a crusade.””These decisions that parents are making are not necessarily coming from a place of science,” says Lisa Gwynn, president of the Florida chapter of the American Academy of Pediatrics, which supports in-school mask mandates. They’re “coming more from just personal preference.”Gwynn testified against the state of Florida in a lawsuit challenging DeSantis’ executive order. But the judge in that case sided with the governor, stating in his decision that the school boards “failed to prove that” the state’s mask opt-out rules “facilitate the spread of COVID-19 in schools.””This is why judges should remain in the courtroom and not in the clinic because everything that he said is totally wrong,” says Gwynn.Gwynn acknowledges that COVID-19 poses a low risk of serious illness to young children but says mask mandates are necessary because kids can still spread the disease to adults. She also says concerns that mask wearing in schools hinders childhood development are overblown.”Have these parents been inside a classroom?…[Teachers know that] kids are adjusting,” Gwynn tells Reason. “That’s what I love about working with children…they’re very resilient.” Because compulsory, all-day masking is a new phenomenon, there are no long-term studies on its effect on childhood mental health and development.Are the benefits worth the potential costs?”We think of [masks] as a completely benign intervention, but they are not,” says Jay Bhattacharya, a professor of health policy at Stanford who testified as an expert witness on behalf of the state of Florida in the lawsuit over the governor’s executive order. “We essentially reorganized our society around the control of a single infectious disease, when in fact, health is plural…A public action that benefits the reduction of one disease might hurt another disease. We have to think about these trade-offs all the time.”Bhattacharya points to an independent study of Florida schools that showed no statistical differences in the case rate between school districts that required masks and those that didn’t.”I don’t believe that there’s any evidence that it actually did much as far as COVID-19 spread for kids to wear masks,” says Bhattacharya.Produced by Zach Weissmueller; graphics by Nodehaus; audio mixing by Ian KeyserPhotos: ​​ERIC LALMAND/Belga/Sipa USA/Newscom; ev Radin/ZUMA Press/Newscom; Braulio Jatar / SOPA Images/Sipa/Newscom; John Nacion/ZUMA Press/Newscom; Lev Radin/Pacific Press/Newscom;  Mark Hertzberg/ZUMAPRESS/Newscom; Jason Bergman/Sipa USA/Newscom; Mark Hertzberg/ZUMAPRESS/NewscomMusic: Spearfisher and Michael Vignola licensed through Artlist.

Everything She Saw During China’s Cultural Revolution is Happening in the U.S. [Video]

She started seeing the signs years ago: Children in the U.S. don’t know about what happened during Mao’s cultural revolution. They aren’t taught in school about the millions who died or the truth about the brutality and terror that swept through China—or HOW those brutal men came to power. Years after fleeing to the U.S., Lily Tang Williams sees the same rhetoric, promises, and tactics being used by the radical left to lure young Americans—and silence any who dare oppose them.Watch the full event, here: https://youtu.be/upvpMkbxViEStill haven’t subscribed to The Heritage Foundation on YouTube?
