“Memorize the following line, teach it to your children, and shout it from the rooftops. It’s one of the most important truths you’ll ever learn or teach. Free people are not equal and equal people are not free”. Today on Retirement Lifestyle Advocates radio your host, Dennis Tubbergen talks with economics expert Larry Reed about the quote from his recent article titled, “When Equality Becomes Evil,” and how that runs against the grain of the World Economic Forum whose objective is the Great Reset wherein the populous will “own nothing and like it.”
Lawrence W. Reed is President Emeritus of the Foundation for Economic Education (FEE), Humphreys Family Senior Fellow, and Ron Manners Global Ambassador for Liberty, having served for nearly 11 years as FEE’s president (2008-2019). He is the author of the 2020 book, “Was Jesus a Socialist?”, as well as Real Heroes: Incredible True Stories of Courage, Character, and Conviction, and Excuse Me, Professor: Challenging the Myths of Progressivism.
Was Jesus a Socialist? An interesting question in light of the seemingly growing interest in socialism by so many young people today and the title of the book written by today’s guest, Mr. Larry Reed. Join us this week on Retirement Lifestyle Advocates Radio where your host Dennis Tubbergen talks with Mr. Reed who says that humankind needs motivation. And beyond just the threat of starvation, we need the kind of motivation that causes people to plan for the long-term, to take risks, to do the uncommon things that result in new inventions and new enterprises.
Mr. Larry Reed is the author of the book “Was Jesus a Socialist?”, and the president emeritus of the Foundation for Economic Education. He is also a much sought-after speaker and well-published author of books and articles on economic freedom and personal liberty.
This week your RLA radio show host Dennis Tubbergen interviews Lawrence Reed, founder of the Foundation for Economic Education and the “Open the Books” initiative, which encourages the reduction of waste and more responsible government spending through transparency.
The two also discuss the fall of Venezuela through Socialist politics and the antidote to bringing the country back to its former economic prominence.
