Dead Wrong® with Johan Norberg – Will We Run Out of Resources? (VIDEO)

What’s going to happen when we run out of all of our resources? As countries around the world grow more and more, the question continues to be discussed, and the world is not getting any bigger. When we run out, we could all be doomed. Eventually, we will have to stop growing to conserve what few resources we have, right? But the truth is, that theory is just Dead Wrong®. It’s been proven wrong time and time again.

Dead Wrong® with Johan Norberg – A Different Take on Personality (VIDEO)

The messaging of politics these days seems to be suggesting that most people fall into one of two personality types. It goes even further to say that most people can be boiled down to “Left vs. Right.” However, politics seem to be the reason why these stereotypes have arisen and are not really what we find throughout the world. Watch Johan Norberg explain, as he discusses rhetoric against what we find in the data, and explore what these personality types are, and what we find most often today in this week’s episode of Dead Wrong®.

Dead Wrong® with Johan Norberg – Should Headscarves be Banned? (VIDEO)

How far do you think we should go to promote integration? And the real question is, would it even help if we tried? When it comes to headscarves, a lot of people see them as a way to control Muslim women who believe in the ideas of the Quran and believe they should be banned. But in reality, banning them has a lot more negative effects than positive for those affected by the ban. These effects are seen in the data, as Johan Norberg explains, and it’s a great example of the unintended consequences that can come from government regulation.

Dead Wrong® with Johan Norberg – Did the Washington Consensus Fail? (VIDEO)

In the 1980s and 90s, liberal economic reforms in Africa and Latin America were supposed to help decrease poverty and increase growth. However, research up to 1998 was not promising for the impact of these reforms. In fact, it showed that there was almost no improvement over almost 20 years. But patience is a virtue for a reason. It turns out that liberal reforms actually do have an impact, and now Johan Norberg explains what these reforms actually did for poor countries.

Dead Wrong® with Johan Norberg – What Liberals Really Care About (VIDEO)

Classical liberals are obviously only concerned about individuals…right? Many people think so. But if you asked a classical liberal, the story would be dramatically different. In fact, the very theories developed by classical liberals were based on recognizing that humans are extremely social creatures. So how does this myth still exist, and why was it created?

Dead Wrong® with Johan Norberg – Consequences of the Berlin Wall (VIDEO)

It’s been 30 years since the fall of the Berlin Wall, and when we look back, we see the true effects of what communism did to people in East Berlin. The values that were supposed to be the focus of communism, like happiness and community, aren’t the reality. In fact, the worst effects of communism are psychological.

Dead Wrong® with Johan Norberg – Greta is Wrong on Growth (VIDEO)

Most would agree that we need to be concerned with climate change. But even though our current situation has been created by fossil fuel use, it has led to the largest increase in quality of life the world has ever seen. The problem is that the growth we have experienced has produced unintended consequences that we were not ready to deal with so quickly. But, does that make it wrong for this growth to have occurred? Or should we be focusing on the best way to correct these unintended consequences right now? This Dead Wrong® episode dives into this topic with Johan Norberg.

THE ROB REPORT: Without a Story, It’s Just a Fact by Rob Chatfield

A study published in 2011 by the Journal of Ethnic and Racial Studies shows 46% of European countries do not collect data based on origin of race. 

In 2018, France removed the word race from its Constitution. 

These are interesting, but largely forgettable facts. Logic, reason, and facts by themselves do not stoke human emotion. Facts need context and need to strike a chord to become memorable.  Facts – when presented as stories – can become instantly memorable.

Can you imagine changing the FOUNDING article of the U.S. Constitution? Yet that’s exactly what France did when it took the mantra that France “shall ensure the equality of all citizens before the law, without distinction of origin, race or religion” and threw race out of the equation in 2018.

This was done by unanimous vote!  From the far left to the far right and every faction in between, the French decided race is an outdated, meaningless, social construct.  Understand there are 577 members in the French National Assembly, representing 9 different political parties whose last unanimous vote required large grocery stores to donate unsold, edible food to charity after learning the grocers previously poured bleach on this food to prevent scavenging.

Race was first introduced to the French Constitution in 1946 as a direct response to racist theories expounded by the National Socialist German Workers’ Party (better known to most as Nazi Germany). Over 500,000 French citizens were killed during the largest race-based atrocity in modern history and they’ve determined race no longer matters. What does that say about the United States?

I added context to facts and may have piqued your interest, but these facts are missing a vital ingredient to make them memorable:  THE STORY.

Our brains are hard-wired to receive facts in the form of a story. Storytelling creates empathy and helps humanity better understand issues. All cultures throughout all times of humanity use some version of storytelling to teach universal truths. So, this tale is not yet complete…

Eli Steele was born profoundly deaf into a mixed-race family. He married a woman who came from yet another culture. Eli was bullied throughout his youth for being different, and when he learns that he must declare a race for his first-born child – or leave that decision to a committee of “experts” – Eli decides to take a stand. 

Learn the story of Eli Steele in Outside the Box, this month’s featured project. You will never see racial identity or identity politics the same way again. If you agree, please include a link to this video in your own social media feed so we can finally dispel the notion that tribes matter more than individuals. You can find the link to the full video on www.izzit.org.

Dead Wrong® with Johan Norberg – More Robots, More Problems? (VIDEO)

The narrative we always hear about automation is that it will eventually lead to massive unemployment and is a threat to our economy. A new report even states that 47% of all jobs will be automated by 2030. But that report is misinterpreted just as much as the overstated effects that would come from automation. Is there an untold side to this story? It turns out there is another narrative that almost no one talks about, and it could be potentially more harmful than automation. As Johan Norberg discusses, worrying too much about automation is just Dead Wrong®.
