    I'm Lauren Southern – I just wrote a book called Barbarians – Ask me anything!
    The values that built the west have been forgotten. Instead, millennials have been raised to hold hedonism above all. Whatever feels good goes. Freedoms and rights are things for legislators and judges to conjure out of thin air, not precious traditions forged in the crucible of history.

Insider trading is illegal on Wall Street, yet it is routine among members of Congress. Normal individuals cannot get in on IPOs at the asking price, but politicians do so routinely. The Obama administration has been able to funnel hundreds of millions of dollars to its supporters, ensu…

    Take your place in helping America fulfill her unfinished assignment. Make no mistake, the gnawing concern you have about the future of our nation is not delusional. America is already in turmoil. When Jeb Bush referred to Donald Trump as “the chaos candidate,” he may have been tapping into something more prophetic than he realized.

    Sanders: ‘I am running for president’
    Our Electoral System is Fundamentally Flawed, But There’s a Simple and Fair SolutionAt least five U.S. presidential elections have been won by the second most popular candidate. The reason was a “spoiler”—a minor candidate who takes enough votes away from the most popular candidate to tip the election to someone else. The spoiler effect is more than a glitch.
