Endless Mask Wearing and Its Irrationality

[March 24, 2021: A caller to the Dennis Prager Show—Robert—stated that he will wear a mask for the rest of his life unless he is with people that he knows have been vaccinated.]

Dennis [to audience]: That decision is not scientifically sound, but he is not alone. We have changed America. The hysteria has had its effect on—I have no idea how many people—but there’s no doubt that Robert in Tampa is not alone.

I can’t overstate how injurious I believe widespread masking is. I have the exact same antipathy towards these masks as I do to Muslim veils. It is dehumanizing; it is bad for society; bad for children not to see adult faces or kids faces. It’s bad for everybody, however there is nothing that one can offer against a psychologically based fear. I have learned that.

Conclusions arrived at irrationally cannot be undone with reason.  — Dennis Prager

The Death of Europe – Douglas Murray – The Hoover Institution

47 minutes – June 3, 2019

In this episode of Uncommon Knowledge, Peter Robinson is joined by author and columnist Douglas Murray to discuss his new book The Madness of Crowds: Race, Gender and Identity. Murray examines the most divisive issues today, including sexuality, gender, and technology, and how new culture wars are playing out everywhere in the name of social justice, identity politics, and intersectionality. Is European culture and society in a death spiral caused by immigration and assimilation? Robinson and Murray also discuss the roles that Brexit and the rise of populism in European politics play in writing immigration laws across the European Union.

The “Madness of Crowds” – Douglas Murray – The Hoover Institution

1 hour, 16 minutes – Nov. 23, 2020

A little over 18 months ago, we interviewed author and columnist Douglas Murray about his then new book The Madness of Crowds: Gender, Race and Identity. That show was one of our most-watched interviews of 2019, so we thought it was time to sit down with Douglas again and get an update on where things stand with regard to, as Douglas describes in his book, “the interpretation of the world through the lens of ‘social justice,’ ‘identity group politics’ and ‘intersectionalism’ . . . the most audacious and comprehensive effort since the end of the Cold War at creating a new ideology.” We also discuss European politics, examine Boris Johnson’s tenure as UK prime minister, and take a sobering look at American politics from the perspective of a very sharp observer.

When Childish Worldviews Take Over – Dennis Prager & Douglas Murray

An outstanding conversation with Douglas Murray: How the left became so radical—the lack of debate, “anti-racism” training, corporate wokeness, critical race theory, and infantile thinking. Plus, some excellent advice for those afraid to speak their minds.

The $15 Minimum Wage Is Turning Hard Workers Into Black Market Lawbreakers – ReasonTV

13½ minutes

An in-depth look at New York’s car wash industry, and the real world consequences of politicians interfering with a complex industry they don’t understand.

As Reason chronicled in a feature story in our July 2016 issue, the real world impact of the unionization drive, the lawsuits, and the $15 minimum wage has been mainly to push car washes to automate and to close down.

Two years later, there are more unintended consequences. The $15 minimum wage is fostering a growing black market—workers increasingly have no choice but to ply their trade out of illegal vans parked on the street, because the minimum wage has made it illegal for anyone to hire them at the market rate.

The minimum wage is also cartelizing the industry: Businesses that have chosen to automate are benefiting from the $15 wage floor because outlawing cheap labor makes it harder for new competitors to undercut them on price and service.

Has environmentalism become more than just a good faith effort to protect the Earth? Is it now tantamount to a religion? And if it is, is that a good thing or a bad thing? PragerU’s latest short documentary, hosted by Will Witt, explores the origins, agenda, and motives of today’s environmental movement. What he finds raises some challenging questions for anyone who sincerely cares about the future of the planet.
