The Left vs. The Right

Many people – including those who keep up with politics – cannot articulate the differences between the Left and the Right in a way that is fair and objective.

In this five-part video series, Dennis Prager does exactly that.

In under 30 minutes, you’ll understand the essential differences between the two.

Believe me, it’s worth 30-minutes of your time.

How Big Should Government Be?

How big should the government be? And what is its proper role in the daily lives of Americans? The Left and Right have opposite answers.

Does it Feel Good or Does it Do Good?

When setting public policy, what’s more important: intentions or results? Feeling good or doing good? When it comes to being guided by the heart or by the mind, the Left and Right are very different.

How Do You Judge America?

Is the United States an exceptional country that has played a uniquely good role in history? Or is it a typical country, perhaps even a uniquely bad one considering the legacy of slavery and Jim Crow? On this, the Left and Right do not agree.

How Do You Deal With Painful Truths?

The Left and Right perceive the world differently. One side sees it as it exists, accepts fundamental truths and facts–even if they are painful–and then adopts a worldview. The other side adopts a vision and then views the world through that prism. Which side sees the world as reality? And which as it imagines?

How Do We Make Society Better?

How do you want to improve America? By focusing on improving and refining yourself? Or by transforming society? The answer to that question will reveal whether you’re on the Left or the Right.
