An Evening with Tucker Carlson
America's Elites Are on a Ship of Fools

Posted: Fri. November 2, 2018, 2:23pm PT

At this sold-out Independent Institute event, Tucker Carlson discusses America's elites, a group whose power and wealth from government privilege have grown beyond imagination even as the rest of the country has floundered. The people who run America now barely interact with it, and in his #1 New York Times, best-selling book, Ship of Fools, Carlson offers a blistering critique of our new overlords. Traditional liberals who worried about whales and defended free speech have been replaced by authoritarians who hide their hard-edged agenda behind identity politics. They’ll fleece you while lecturing you about bathrooms, plastic straws, and safe spaces.

“Left and right,” Carlson says, “are no longer meaningful categories in America. The rift is between those who benefit from the status quo, and those who don’t.” Our leaders are fools, Carlson concludes, “unaware that they are captains of a sinking ship.” At this event, and in his signature fearless and witty style, he addresses the all-important question: How do we put the country back on course?
