I enjoyed the all too uncommon privilege of having my mind completely changed today by Yaron Brook on The Saad Truth #769. Yaron argued that a state should be entirely ideologically neutral and this immediately set off alarm bells in my brain as to how someone such as Yaron could be falling into the trap of believing that there are no better or worse ideologies. In fact, I knew this to be inconsistent with what this same man had expressed repeatedly in the past, and so I was lost.
Almost as though responding to my confusion Yaron went on to reiterate what he sees as an inability to amongst educators to recognise the western capitalist system as superior to others in implementation and how we are failing to impart this understanding to the young minds in universities whom then go on to function in society .
It all really made sense to me when Yaron pointed out that there are far more ideologically misguided socialists in the UK than Islamists trying to come in, and so if we were to start discriminating based on ideology we would have a seriously difficult time tearing out these deluded students and lecturers from our education system, just as a start.
Unfortunately Yaron went on to talk about his belief in the existence of free will and failed to tackle any of the arguments which show it to be an illusion. For the sake of my sanity I'll leave that topic to the side as just last night I spent about an hour trying to dissuade somebody of the notion of free will and it proved worryingly difficult.
