In this lecture, Yaron Brook explains why the equality demanded by progressives is not only UNFAIR but a threat to American liberty.
Contrary to what you have been told, the real threat to the American Dream isn't rising income inequality, but an all-out war on success. The key to making American a freer, "fairer," more prosperous nation is to protect and celebrate the pursuit of success - not to pull down the high fliers in the name of equality.
This talk was delivered on June 14, 2016 at the Conservative Forum in Mountain View, CA and hosted by the Liberty Forum.
