AEI resident scholar and former professor Christina Hoff Sommers has been lecturing on college campuses for more than twenty years. Recently, some students have conducted protests against speech they find objectionable. They've forced lecturers to cancel talks, have security protect the speakers, or even have universities launch investigations into the student complaints against their professors. Dr. Sommers takes a look at this recent wave of protests, and posits that the First Amendment is being replaced by a woman's right not to be made uncomfortable.

+American Enterprise Institute I see these cases of feminism in campuses and universities and made me wonder; What the hell is wrong with the western education system?
An university is an educational institution for grown-ups, not children and if anyone needs "Safe places" then maybe they're not ready to go to one yet.
These people will be hit in the face by reality, hard

Atena Farghadani is a 28 year old Iranian artist. She was just sentenced to 12 years in prison for the crime of posting a feminist cartoon on Facebook. Farghadani is a genuine victim of a repressive patriarchal society—yet you will hear little or nothing about her from the American women’s movement. Why not? #FactualFeminist

#Schoolchoice leverages the ingenuity of teachers and principals, and matches their innovative ideas with the needs and desires of families to find a school that best serves their children.

As we watch news coverage from #Baltimore, AEI welcomes you to hear a panel of distinguished experts discuss an important topic. 

Black men in the United States are struggling on many fronts. Their employment rates have fallen dramatically since 2000, and faster than those of their white peers. Large racial gaps in educational attainment, family stability, and incarceration persist. Yet at the same time, black men have shaped mainstream popular culture in powerful ways.

What role have economic factors played in this struggle? How do the complex subcultures that black men navigate affect these issues? And in what ways can public policy and cultural attitudes be engaged to improve the prospects of black men? Join us tomorrow at 12PM ET. 
A panel of distinguished experts discuss the role of economics, policy, and culture in the struggles of black men in the United States, and how their prospects can be improved.

What do you do if you’re a professor at a leading Russian university, and speaking honestly about the Putin regime brings threats of investigation and prosecution from the authorities? In 2013, Sergei Guriev chose self-exile in France after being interrogated repeatedly for criticizing the Putin administration’s treatment of Mikhail Khodorkovsky, a Russian oil tycoon. Now at Sciences Po in Paris, Professor Guriev sat down with Resident Scholar Leon Aron at the American Enterprise Institute to discuss the Russian economy, the tactics of modern autocrats, and why he has no plans to return to Russia.

Guriev the clown, thinks that somebody would waste resources on "persecuting" this loser.

He's not Edward Snowden exactly , this Guriev.

Allan Bloom’s 1987 book “The Closing of the American Mind” examined a shift in American culture that threatened the fundamental tenets of American society, individualism, liberty, and democracy. Nearly 30 years later, the intellectual habits of Americans seem to have only further deteriorated.

“The State of the American Mind” (Templeton Press, June 2015), edited by Mark Bauerlein and Adam Bellow and featuring contributions from 16 distinguished researchers, draws on extensive research and expertise to demonstrate how far Americans have slipped into disengagement from civic affairs, entitlement mentality, narcissistic personalities, and timidity in the face of political correctness.

Since its official recognition by the psychiatric establishment in 1980, post-traumatic stress disorder has expanded beyond the confines of the clinic. Social observers, for example, find it’s become a way of narrating and framing one's experience following a cataclysmic event. AEI Resident Scholar Sally Satel, who has written widely about PTSD, talked to David Morris, author of the new book "The Evil Hours: A Biography of Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder" about PTSD and its influence on modern filmmaking, and conversely, how film has influenced the perception of the condition.

"if Obama had any brains in that empty space he calls his brain!!! there would be more action towards isis and any other extremist organization, should be taken with swift effective action!! Not bowing to these terrorist fuck heads!!!, we are AMERICA!!!! we were founded on Christianity and the right to believe in what ever we want. without any government telling us what to believe with there media propaganda. I feel like exercising my amendment rights, by kicking these worthless governmentorial repusentitves that do a better job playing golf!!, than protecting and keeping our citizens safe without taking liberty away. is the only way of doing so. restoring all the old amendments and not tampering with them. for example if some breaks into my house with the intent to steel, or harm me, family etc. I will shoot and ask questions later that is given to me by my ancestors who where in the beginning of this country during its conception. I am not blind Mr. Obama I see through politically correct statements and smell the stench of a treasonous snake spewing venom with your deceitful words!!! That is why you and your regime will be stopped!!, with the hand of justice giving all who are responsible a big slap in the face of reality,  and pull them from there spot of superiority down to working class citizens so they can have a little taste of what they brewed up!!!!

Before #Obamacare, many working class Americans had an upper middle class #healthcare benefit that they got at work. Now they’ll be put on a plan benchmarked to Obamacare — one that looks a lot like #Medicaid.
Before Obamacare, many working class Americans had an upper middle class healthcare benefit that they got at work. Now they’ll be put on a plan benchmarked to Obamacare — one that looks a lot like Medicaid. Only the wealthier services firms, and their upper income employees, will be able to buy their way up, and out of this scheme. That’s progressive egalitarianism under Obamacare.

This year marks the 45th anniversary of #EarthDay, and polls show that Americans are sympathetic to efforts to protect the environment, but that #globalwarming, #climatechange, and the nation’s energy problems are not their top priorities. #earthday2015

Freedom. Enterprise. Opportunity.
The American Enterprise Institute is a community of scholars and supporters committed to expanding liberty, increasing individual opportunity and strengthening free enterprise. AEI pursues these unchanging ideals through independent thinking, open debate, reasoned argument, facts and the highest standards of research and exposition. Without regard for politics or prevailing fashion, we dedicate our work to a more prosperous, safer and more democratic nation and world.

AEI is a private, nonpartisan, not-for-profit institution dedicated to research and education on issues of government, politics, economics and social welfare. Founded in 1943, AEI is home to some of America's most accomplished public policy experts. AEI's purpose is to serve leaders and the public through research and education on the most important issues of the day. AEI research is conducted through six primary research divisions: Economics, Foreign and Defense Policy, Politics and Public Opinion, Education, Health, Energy and the Environment and Social and Culture. It also works through several specialized outlets, such as the National Research Initiative (which sponsors research by university-based scholars), the AEI Press, the AEIdeas blog and The American, AEI's online magazine.

Approximately 185 people work at AEI's headquarters in Washington, D.C. In addition, about 50 adjunct scholars and fellows, mainly at research universities around the United States, conduct research for AEI and participate in its conferences. In all our endeavors, AEI trustees, scholars and fellows, and officers and staff are responsible for maintaining the highest standards of integrity, intellectual rigor and excellence—and for sustaining AEI's founding commitment to open inquiry, lucid exposition, vigorous debate and continuous improvement in the institutions of American liberty.
