How Tom Woods smacked down the know-it-alls at Yale


You’re looking at a guy who just got an audience at Yale — Yale! — to vote in favor of the right of state secession, by a margin of 2 to 1.

Yes, I had some supporters in the audience. But an organizer said that even correcting for that, the outcome was still very surprising.

Events at the Yale Political Union begin with a 20-30 minute statement by the speaker, and conclude by giving the speaker an opportunity to respond to the various speeches, pro and con, that students have given over the course of the night regarding the resolution at issue.

My responses were the most enjoyable part of the night.

Let’s be blunt about this: while keeping the audience laughing, I pummeled my opponents into dust.

“Man, that Woods sure has a high opinion of himself,” you say.

I’m just telling you what happened.

I’ve got video coming.

My favorite part involved the poor soul who was outraged that we hadn’t discussed slavery, which “everybody knows” was at the root of battles between the states and the federal government.

I then reviewed the history of that struggle, and rhetorically removed his kneecaps.

It’s nice to be able to walk into one of the most prestigious universities in the world and feel completely confident arguing a highly controversial position.

You can have that nice feeling, too.

No more thinking to yourself: I know I’m right, yet my co-workers left me stammering for a response.

I’ve distilled the knowledge it’s taken me decades to acquire into on-the-go courses you can listen to in your car.

Today is the five-year anniversary of my Liberty Classroom, where my (trustworthy and awesome) colleagues and I teach the history and economics they kept from you.

In honor of that anniversary, I’m taking 200 smackers off the Master, lifetime membership to the site. That’s all 18 courses (that you can watch or listen to whenever you want), Q&A forums, live events, and more, plus every single course we ever create.

This ain’t never happening again, period.

As a bonus, you get all the courses I created for the Ron Paul Curriculum (that’s 400+ videos, also available in audio format).

My course on government distills 20 years of learning into a one-semester course.

Savings: 19 1/2 years.

Plus, again today only, I’m also throwing in signed, personalized copies of FOUR of my books: The Politically Incorrect Guide to American History (aNew York Times bestseller), Who Killed the Constitution?, Real Dissent, and 33 Questions About American History You’re Not Supposed to Ask.

Could there be a better treat for yourself, or for that student in your life?

The clock is ticking….

“Get the equivalent of a Ph.D. in libertarian thought and free-market economics online for just 24 cents a day.”
Most of us learned politically correct U.S. history in school. The economics was at least as bad.
It’s never too late to learn the truth.
At Liberty Classroom, you can learn real U.S. history, Western civilization, and free-market economics from professors you can trust.
Short on time? No problem. You can learn in your car.
