Liberty and freedom are very rare in human history. The human instinct is not to yearn for liberty-humans yearn to be taken care of. Generally, by the government (socialism & communism).
America's founders knew that limited government and liberty are key to a free society-but we are now witnessing that as Americans become more secular, they value liberty much less.

Dennis, you're wrong on the liberty issue. Americans still hold liberty dear, but they were totally tricked by the mainstream news and newspapers that continuously scream bloody murder and death is happening for everyone, just wait! 72 HOURS OF REPEATED STATEMENTS MAKE THE SUBCONSCIOUS MIND BELIEVE IT. Americans have been fooled. The real question is: How do we wake them up?

Liberty is not a “value”. Liberty is a legal contract, with terms and conditions. In America, people are not allowed to walk around naked. Homosexual men are not permitted to get married. And lesbian women are not allowed to adopt children. Those restrictions are taken from common law, which is based on the will of the people. So don’t believe that our “government” can create statutory laws which are incongruent with public opinion. They can’t. All laws are taken from the majority view.

I had to go on unemployment for a few weeks after being laid of because of the lockdowns. It felt so weird to be getting biweekly checks for not having done any work. And it was even worse because the checks were worth more money than I've ever earned at any job, including my new current one. The incentive to stay on welfare systems is absolutely disgraceful.

This is a bunch of BS! First off, Jesus was a communist. Next, liberty IS an instinct. Take for example rats. The alpha rat even though will wrestle for fun, but will lose just enough. Even the lowly rat without "god's" commandments for being "humanitarian" will show the same qualities. This proves that the authority can't gain complete control if the plebes and revolt by not playing with the alpha rat. There's a force called karma which decides these thing, not your sky daddy, and not "evolution" like scientists say. Evolution wants to "prove" atheism. But no matter how hard they try, they prove either a "god" or karma is a result. Because it's 100% impossible for chaos to result in order. At the time of the "Big Bang," which I think is really a "Big Bounce" from the never ending cycles of Maya (reality). Science also has this "theory" too which they call, "loop quantum gravity" where there was never a singularity (cause hint hint, a singularity of infinite mass is 100% impossible too, which breaks their equations so they just skip that messy "math"). The reason atheism and belief in the all powerful sky daddy are names for the same thing, is you only have to look at Sam Harris and his lunatic "theory" that free will is an illusion. Most Christians will tell you "god" gives them free will, but if god is all knowing, he created knowing what you will do to the exact minutiae down to how many times and where you will sneeze! That's the same exact theory Harris says too, that the universe is a state machine and with enough information you can calculate everything that will happen from the point of the big bang. The only way free will is possible and true liberty can exist, is if "god" is only a referee (like my "god" Amitabha) who isn't this all powerful sky daddy who created everything. You also can't have a free for all atheist extreme anything goes either. There has to be a middle, where some sort of "entity" (whether it's the Celestial Buddha Amitabha who I believe in, or some other universe consciousness) that follows rules of a "game." Our "soul" would therefore "evolve" through "karmic actions" to be "reborn" until final "liberty(moska)" is reached and we become one with the universe consciousness (in Amitabha's pure land.) A soul therefore cannot be created nor destroyed, and the only one we have to fear is the choices WE make, and take responsibility for our actions which will get "punished" because of every decision WE make.

Dear Dennis, thank you for PragerU! God bless you and your PragerU extended family! You all are awesome and I am going to join PragerU with this simple aha moment thought I wish to share with you. The Left, I have come to believe, has not been taught to cultivate wisdom. So, I give you this quote, "The wise week to understand, the ignorant cast blame". I'm not saying that those who have chosen the left are not intelligent, I know many brilliant leftists. They, simply, have been taught to attack and throw verbal stones if you don't agree with them or they don't get their way. Just look at our last Presidential election. I know someone that if you say the name President Trump an internal Left Pandora's Box is unlatched and out spews from his mouth blasphemous words which are all anti - Trump and anti - conservative. I pray that people begin to use logic and understanding again. I pray that we haven't created a world like China's where it only took one generation to indoctrinate the children of China into the Communist way of thought. I believe PragerU is helping many people open their minds and is teaching them logical, critical thinking. Thank you, again, for your videos, they help me immensely! Sincerely, Matt Morris

The Hong Kong flu is an excellent example of why it isn't an excellent example. 100,000 people in the U.S. died in about a year from '68-'69 and we didn't think any lockdowns were needed. In 2020, the U.S. has had 100,000 deaths in about 5 months of the current pandemic with a severe lockdown in place for most of the planet during much of that time. It's not clear what the final fatality rate may be, but current evidence suggests this current strain is far more contagious. How many more than that 100k deaths would there be without the lockdown, and we're not done with this pandemic by a long shot. Let me be clear, I'm in favor of lifting the lockdown and educating people of the risks so they can exercise their own freedom of choice, but part of understanding the risk is realizing just how contagious of a virus we're dealing with.

It’s disheartening and depressing to think that so many American values have been flushed down the toilet since 1969-the year I was born. America seems practically unrecognizable anymore. Dennis Miller on his podcast brought up the idea that maybe America should just split up since were so deeply and probably irreversibly divided... like ending a relationship, just split up and go our own ways. I like that idea. Coexisting doesn’t seem like a realistic option at this point.

15:00 The reason why they didn't enter lockdown is because the flue wasn't projected to wipe out 3% of the population. Initial data indicated that Covid-19, if left ignored, was going to wipe out 10 million people in America alone. You're using the bias of hindsight here to make a stupid claim.

God has already given us freedom, and it cannot be taken away. This is because it resides in the mind. It's power is not dependent on what other people do or don't do. It's power depends on what we stay focused upon and expect from our spiritual Source of All Supply. If we take our attention off of the nonsense, and keep it turned toward our blessings, then the BS will fall away in due season like leaves on a tree: *Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true* [the empowering promises of God], *whatever is noble, whatever is right* [aligning with our blessings], *whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable--if anything is excellent or praiseworthy--think about such things.* - Philippians 4:8 (NIV) We weren't told to do this just so we could be nice. Doing this creates miraculous, supernatural, manifested results.

Reliance on government is different today. It's more like you are going to get paid for your ability to positively affect the world, but not have to physically work and the government will pay you with bit dollars you can use to pay for things you don't own. All will not be equal. Some will be worth much more.

I find it very difficult to believe the statue of liberty was given because we were free. From what I have read, it was given to commemorate the change in the government which the Civil War brought about. That change being from the states having more power to the federal government having more power. I believe the nation was founded upon the principles of the power of the citizen and the states, each intended to be a small country of it's own with the federal government regulating trade between the states and overseas trade. Where am I mistaken?

@King Koi (I accidentally clicked post before I was finished.) If we continue to focus on those horrible things, they will continue to expand. Since our imagination creates reality, we must focus on what we want rather than what on we don't want. In other words, instead of thinking about those crimes and injustices of the victims, let's instead think about their freedom, well-being, and happiness. If we do this on a regular basis, we'll began to see less of what we don't like and more of what we do like. This is the absolute truth.

@King Koi Here's the truth on what we should do. And almost no one will tell you this because they don't understand how life really works. First of all, God has already given us freedom, and it cannot be taken away. This is because it resides in the mind. It's power is not dependent on what other people do or don't do. It's power depends on what we stay focused upon and expect from our spiritual Source of All Supply. If we take our attention off of the nonsense, and keep it turned toward our blessings, then the BS will fall away in due season like leaves on a tree (the following brackets are mine): *Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true* [the empowering promises of God], *whatever is noble, whatever is right* [aligning with our blessings], *whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable--if anything is excellent or praiseworthy--think about such things.* - Philippians 4:8 (NIV) He didn't say this just so we could be nice. Making a habit of doing this creates miraculous, supernatural, manifested results. This is often referred to, in other circles, as the law of attraction.
Bobbie Schroder
Bobbie Schroder 6 сарын өмнө
@King Koi Well, sometimes it just gets pummeled out of them by the hardships of life. So they lose touch with that inner knowing of freedom that lives within, and they don't understand the true source of their power, as spiritual beings. Sometimes their parents do it to them, and sometimes their freedom gets distorted by leftist political ideology in the school systems, etc. It could be done through a variety of ways. It could also be the result of being spoiled by their parents, to the point that they think that the world owes them a living. So they look to the government and others outside of themselves for support and sustenance. In my opinion, a person who has the characteristics of bravery and good instincts will also have a very strong sense of their God-given freedom.

The irony of the verse quoted on the Liberty Bell is that it is in reference to the release of slaves during jubilee year (which occurred every 50 years). When leftists say the founders were just white slaveholders, this inscription would seem to imply otherwise. (Surely the founders knew the context of the verse.) You might say that the founders could not overcome their baser instincts to retain slaves for the purposes of commerce, but to say that they were evil, and therefore all their writings and philosophies are null and void is simply erroneous.

Dennis, speaking of raw live sound, that is one of the main reasons I want to own a night club that also does live performances. if I ever get to own one, I may just employ you to help design the sound system. The real reason I wanted to comment though was about the political divide, which I think has been made far worse with the CCP Virus lockdowns. I lost friends for supporting Trump. I lost friends for voting for Trump. I lost more friends for continuing to support Trump. But I lost the most by opposing the lockdowns, mandatory wearing of face masks, and mandated social distancing. I was talking to someone yesterday who is no Republican/Conservative whose sister was disowned by their mother for attending a reopen rally. ***sigh*** Yeah... Personally, I have reached this point with it all going back to 2016. If they are really that helpless, that small and petty, even if they are close family -- as painful as that might be -- they are actually doing you a favor by "breaking up with you" because they are obviously dead weight. Think of it this way; it's spring cleaning; and it's time to de-clutter the garage. Imagine if all the junk and clutter just got up and just threw itself in the trash with little no effort on your part. You don't get sweaty and grimy, you don't have to spend the day old scruffy clothes that make you look and feel like a homeless crack addict. Your day was magically freed up to do what ever you want.

A lot of people just want to be "taken care of" these days. Whether it's by the government, their spouse, their parents, or the company they work for. People want security. Sadly, this borders on "laziness", because they don't want to contribute. They just want to be taken care of. One-sided.
