COVID-19 has upended life as we know it. Now more than ever, the world can feel confusing and chaotic. We wanted to cut through the noise and hear real stories from real people all around the world, so we decided to interview 12 people, in 6 countries. The only stipulation was that they had to be willing to speak openly and honestly about their experiences during the COVID-19 pandemic.
We realized that despite the polarization around this topic, and intensity of opinions being shared, no one person really knows what’s going on. To move forward we need intellectual humility and empathy –– with a focus on our shared humanity –– especially at a time like this. T
his documentary shares a diversity of COVID-related stories and perspectives to highlight the importance of embracing our individuality and maintaining intellectual openness through this time.

War Sucks, What is it Good For? As the song goes, ‘absolutely nothing.’ Wars have historically failed to achieve the desired outcome of stabilization, all the while wasting taxpayers’ money, and causing sustained misery in the regions affected by conflict and resulting in tragically high levels of casualties, both military and civilian.
Conflict should be avoided as much as possible, with the only exception being as a last resort in defense of liberty. Learn Liberty believes that this can be achieved by promoting global interdependence through diplomacy, cooperation, and free trade. Alongside its obvious casualties, war invariably impedes trade, hinders economic development, and results in a loss of individual liberty.
I have tried to avoid saying much about the “Confederate statues” kerfuffle. That’s partly because the issue is more complicated than it’s often made out to be.
As a believer in small government, I usually favor anything that reduces taxes. But this tax break has wreaked havoc on American health care.
Taxes, protests, massacre, and revolution — this is our full America’s Founding series in one glorious video. For more US history, watch
