This is pseudo-scholarship at its worst. I was very disappointed to learn the lectures were by the woman who wrote the awful book, "you just don't understand" but thought I would give give it a short since I'd paid for it. It was just as bad as her book. This woman shamelessly perverts science. She creates untestable hypotheses which would make Freud blush. She even begins with an idle boast that she "saved a marriage" of a student through her course. She then proceeds to insult our intelligence with conversation analysis that a ten year-old could constuct if they were forced to waste their time that way. I am shocked this woman is alongside excellent scholars on the other lectures in this series.
If it had been grounded in real economic theory instead of political fantasy
Not have written it so I woiuld not have wasted my money
The argument of this book: we can go back to the wonderful days of the 18th century with a few extremely rich and everyone else very poor, if only we could abolish government (except for law enforcement.) The writers, like many right-wing extremists, fail to understand that in a world of so many firearms, their policies would lead to social revolution and the destruction of the very capitalism they worship.
