Inequality Empowers Responsibility
November 2 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm EDT
Long after he had established himself as one of America’s leading businessmen, as well as history’s greatest steelmaker, Andrew Carnegie reflected that “We all live in the richest and freest country in the world, where no man is limited except by his own mental attitude and his own desires.”
At the time — a decade or so before the First World War — Carnegie’s attitude was nearly universal. In America, anyone could carve out a better life for himself if he worked hard. Today, Carnegie’s attitude is considered almost quaint.
Opportunity? Why, opportunity is a rare thing, and those Americans not lucky enough to be born with it should be given it at other people’s expense. Whether it’s an education, a job, a house, or a grant, opportunity is seen as something that others have to provide you with. If you don’t succeed, it’s not because you failed to capitalize on plentiful opportunities. It’s because you just weren’t one of the fortunate few.
In this talk, Yaron Brook focuses on the CRT / DIE movement and how to fight it. He also promotes the opportunity of inequality, its benefits to the self and to society. Only by embracing inequality, can we breakdown entitlement boundaries and energize others to take responsibility for the course of their own lives.
