'at Roosevelt University'

With Bill Kristol involved, one can easily think that the 'at' is the same sort as the one used by the Mercatus Center at GMU. Yep - 'Roosevelt University hosts major conference on the American Dream on Sept. 11-14' - https://www.roosevelt.edu/news-events/news/20170630-AmericanDreamReconsidered A link well worth reading, actually.

If only because according to the university's web site 'Roosevelt University is a national leader in educating socially conscious citizens for active and dedicated lives as leaders in their professions and their communities.'

Or as noted by wikipedia - 'Roosevelt University is a coeducational, private university with campuses in Chicago, Illinois and Schaumburg, Illinois. Founded in 1945, the university is named in honor of both former President Franklin Delano Roosevelt and First Lady Eleanor Roosevelt. The university's curriculum is based on principles of social justice.' https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Roosevelt_University

But then, as any good follower of any ideology opposed to 'social justice' knows, a tolerance of views which social justice opposes, such as those held by advocates of waging wars of aggression, is a fatal weakness.

I feel so violated! Naming a university against a serial wild-animal-slayer, a Rough Rider who committed crimes against the peace-loving people of Cuba, a war-monger and a Republican like Franklin D. Roosevelt should be unacceptable in this day and age.

I insist that it be re-named. I suggest after an early feminist pioneer like the first person to fly solo across the Pacific - Amelia Earhart!

She only made it to Hawaii.

"The American Dream" is rather like 'zombie': when I see the expression I do something else.

I was surprised at Tyler's long term optimism for online education. I thought everything was stuck in a doldrums.

Perhaps it must wait for a generational change, and department heads who grew up with YouTube.

I love how impatient Tyler gets with Bill rambling on _ don't have the patience to listen to the end sorry!

Will people please stop talking to that cretinous warmonger.

Cowen is America's pre-eminent public intellectual.

Bill Kristol is still a thing? Who knew?

"cretinous" should auto-insert before words "bill kristol" ... the picture of the plutocrat's suckup

terrific interview

That explains why US rent prices are so high. When I moved to the US I was impressed by the cost of rents compared to other prices. True, perhaps America's biggest problem.

Great interview. The North Korea point in particular was interesting. I also really appreciate how TC gets to the point very quickly, in contrast to BKs rambling.
