Truth and Propaganda in Politically Correct America
Tuesday, August 14, 2001
Held at The Independent Institute Conference Center
Although comedian George Carlins infamous routine, Seven Words You Cant Say on TV, has become outdated, today many ideas are considered too politically incorrect to discuss in polite society. According to popular Los Angeles talk-radio host Larry Elder, many sacred cowsabout racism and sexism, health care, welfare, education, the family, drug laws, the media, crime, gun control, and moreare soft-headed distortions that have worsened Americas social problems. If the truth shall make you free, then, says Elder, these myths need a serious reality checkbefore we forget what truth and freedom look like. Larry Elder discussed whats really wrong with America and how a free people, rather than an intrusive government, can fix it.
