What area do you perceive as the "front line" in the fight for liberty right now?

Question: What area do you perceive as the "front line" in the fight for liberty right now?

Answer: That’s a difficult one because the fight for liberty is always a multi-front battle that each generation needs to fight, but my top candidate right now is education and the kind of massive bureaucratic and ideological failure in the past two generations with respect to formal schooling, formal education.

Any time you have a bureaucratic, monopolistic government-run system, it always end-results in disaster in combination with that. We’ve had an ideological capture by anti-liberal, anti-rational, even anti-resilience philosophies and they have done enormous damage, the generation of young people now coming out undereducated, stressed, not having the resilience psychologically to take on Liberty; that I think is a terrible consequence of education.

So, I would say, the first battle is to young people: Educate yourself and take full responsibility for getting as much skills and knowledge as you possibly can.
