I am Canadian and don’t send your kids up here either for Uni. U of T, York Uni and very likely all Canadian Uni’s are teaching illogical leftist ideologies and OSIE department at UofT is the EPICENTRE and of cancel culture. They immediately silence any non leftest views, refuse to engage in a constructive debate. Likely bc they can’t. It’s disturbing and perplexing to watch today’s Uni students yell, scream, verbally/physically abuse, and throw temper tantrums when there is a different view point. I want to smack them and their parents. These millennial females throw hissy fits and then pout and their male counterparts are betas lacking courage. I enjoyed this insight on Courage. It was an opportunity for me to re-elect on the life- when and wasn’t I courageous and yes fear held me back. Thank you Dennis- I will now always speak up and in a manner that is inviting.

The behavioral patterns of democrats is so parallel to Adolf Hitler. I studied Hitler and Nazism extensively during my college years, and the similarities b/w democrats and Hitler and the Nazi party is startling. I know scholars who have studied the behavior patterns of Communism, and they say it similar to democrats as well. The USA is being stolen by the democratic party crossbreed of Nazi/Communism!!

Thank you for this. Your comments about grades reminded me when my Brother-in-law was applying to MIT he had to write an essay about what makes him stand out and a good choice for MIT. He was nervous because he is a conservative, God fearing, family man. So he wrote his paper about those things and how it would add diversity to MIT. He got in!

When I was a kid, my school had a 2 story tall slide, accessed by a 3 wide platform of squared off logs, with no railings. It was terrifying. I went up there on my hands and knees. I understood when the school took that thing down. They also removed the hill we would sled down in the winter; I did not understand that. I also remember the ball pit at fast food places. Now they removed the balls. How is a kid going to seriously hurt themselves there?

I don't like to say this, however my courage came from tragedy and pain, circumstances prevailed; where there was no way of changing it. Eventually I made it. First thing I had to learn was to throw away my fears. I like your videos, your company brings back sense and sensibility in hard times.

I rarely agree with Prager about anything but I agree courage is important. Especially people need courage to speak truth and drop biases. Everyone needs courage to tell the truth about the character and political views in this time of change. I hope everyone fact checks everything they post. And the proliferation of conspiracy theories has to stop. It’s actually embarrassing listening to these conspiracy theories.

The year after I left elementary school they prohibited kids from going onto the Monkey Bars because people were getting hurt (Once a year at that). Also, they were forced to play in the grass and not allowed to run because one of the teachers felt that it was too dangerous on the playground.

it's unfortunate how much repeating you do, as it feels like you're devaluing past fireside chats. it would be much more productive if you could find some way to limit how many times you repeat these stories (the middle of the video is mostly these)

I’m a Hispanic lesbian and am a conservative believe it or not. I pray that PragerU continues their education, I will continue to donate what I can. I haven’t watched a video that I didn’t agree with. I don’t have children but believe this program teaches children how to be courageous and ethical. Honestly it also teaches adults too. My values are old fashioned and I will stand for your children and their future of freedom not the sick socialist view. I know asking parents to stand for there beliefs is a lot to ask because your entire family could suffer. Know this, where you can’t I will. Your children are America’s future, all I ask is that you give them love and guidance that leads them to true happiness and a path to God.

Isn't PragerU registered as a charity which means it is illegal for you to be political? That regulation does not seem to stop PragerU from constantly being political. You are also not registered as a real university. You started out with lots of money from FRACKING BILLIONAIRES but you ask for donations under the guise of a charity. Correct? I'm just trying to understand.

Regarding hydroxychloroquine and zink i remember hearing from a doctor that the whole medical staff, or medical community, got a notice about taking these when covid hit. I think he said its normal in other situations too like for the flu. I could be wrong on that but for covid he said they were told to take this and he explained how it actually helps and that its cheap and readily available to people. When i heard that i thought "Trump was right after all". There was one more thing they were told to take but i forgot what it was. I think it was a vitamin like D or maybe C.

look up the book by Sir Isaac Watts "Logic : The Right Use of Reason in the Inquiry after Truth". A primary school primary book teaching kids logic. If the schools will not teach this learn it for yourself. if you subject yourself to the teachings of "Ceaser" don't be surprised when you start thinking like Romans.

There is a difference between courage and restraint. It's easy to be courageous when you are independently wealthy or at least well off. vs. those of us that will actually lose their livelihoods. Especially if you have a family to support. In certain jobs their are unions and other organizations that if you quote the bible, it's considered hate speech and you will be punished from the management.

Everyone has to make the choice for themselves right? That is why it takes courage though. I think talking politics at work is just a bad idea in general unless you have a sense that the person you are talking to is open to polite disagreement. I feel comfortable discussing my views with my friends though even when they disagree. If they can't accept you being honest about your views then they aren't particularly good friends. The problem has become when we share things online, and somehow the business world has managed to get influence in controlling what we can and can't say in a public forum. I think that is particularly concerning.

I left a book club because I felt like a square peg in a round hole. No critical discussion regarding current social issues, only group think consensus. I.e. American Dirt”. How can that awful America deny entry to those poor victims escaping tragic circumstances? Not one individual would speak up as to what happens afterwards, and the cost to society when floods of undocumented individuals overwhelm society’s ability to financially support them. It was liberating to finally step away because I was going to inflict permanent damage with all my tongue-biting. I thoroughly enjoy listening to you.

Come out as a conservative and possibly experience how Jehovah's Witnesses have to deal with the ugly and shocking disappointment of family (parents children marriage mates), churchmates and workmates. Sometimes loss of work sometimes must leave their job over it. You will infact sleep better after it dies down... But to suffer all that for leaping 'from the skillet into the fire' still leaves one in a bad place spiritually. Maybe it could be a step in the right direct? The best place is that one wants the Creator to have His way with Christ as King! Daniel 7:13 “I kept watching in the visions of the night, and look! with the clouds of the heavens, someone like a son of man was coming; and he gained access to the Ancient of Days, and they brought him up close before that One. 14 And to him there were given RULERSHIP. His rulership is an everlasting rulership that will not pass away, and his kingdom will not be destroyed."
