Research Fellow Jonathan Bean, author of Race and Liberty in America: The Essential Reader appeared on WORD radio to discuss Bean's recent Op-Ed about his experience on the Illinois State Advisory Committee on Civil Rights. On Martin Luther King Day, Bean says King's dream of a more just society is poorly served by ignoring viewpoints that disagree with our own.
Research Fellow Wendy McElroy appeared on the Dr. Laura Schlessinger radio show. McElroy discusses the falsified research, or so-called advocacy research on such topics such as college rape and domestic violence. The results, she says, is hysteria on college campuses and demonization of black males. Flawed statistics from this research have been used in legislation such as the Violence Against Women Act, according to McElroy.
Sr. Fellow Lawrence McQuillan was a guest on the Jason Lewis radio show. He discussed the economics and history of totalitarianism vs capitalism in terms of policies such as higher taxes for corporations, farm subsidies, price and rent controls and endless money supply and how history can show us which of these stifle prosperity. Private property and individualism are the foundations of freedom, argues McQuillan.
