The US produces far more large, tech startups than all of Europe combined.
The Economist looks at the challenge advancing technology like sharing platforms poses to left-wing politicians, using France as an example. How does the US compare?

The late Walter Berns was at once a patriot and a scholar, a rare combination in today's world. Trace his story from WWII, to an artists colony in New Mexico, to studying under Leo Strauss, and see how he became one of the twentieth century's most revered scholars of the Constitution.

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.

Some historical perspective on what four of the last five previous popes had to say about socialism over the last 50 years
Some historical perspective on what four of the last five previous popes had to say about socialism over the last 50 years (emphasis added)…… 1. Pope John XXIII (1958-1963) Pope Pius XI further emphasized the fundamental opposition between Communism and Christianity, and made it clear that no Catholic could subscribe even to moderate Socialism.

The #amazon story may be sensational, but it's not the norm according to the polls. #workplace
Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos strikes back. Based on the polls, most Americans are very satisfied with their work, and Amazon’s workplace culture is very different from what most workers experience.

We need more #optimism in America today-especially in our politics.
Leaders have to stop choosing pessimism and try to inspire hope.

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.

+Jack Carter Yeah. However "fainting couch" didn't evolve.  CHS adopted the phrase for her cause introducing drastic change.

My point has always been that it doesn't make sense.

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

The agreement did not include human rights. Nor Iran's missile program. Nor it's support for terrorist groups or regimes.

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.
