IDEAS WAITING TO BE DISCOVERED
And used. By you.

Some Things Change. Some Don’t.

The only way to know whether change is good or bad, progress or regress, forward movement or backward, is to measure it against something permanent, something immutable, something unchanging.

What never changes? What never deteriorates, dissipates, or fades? Ideas.

In the stormy course of human events, a sound idea can be like the North Star for sailors in stormy seas: a guide.

The Speakeasy Ideas Academy video courses below focus on human events, some recent, some not, and the ideas that illuminate the meaning of those events—ideas that can help you make better choices and get more of the good things you want in life.

Each course consists of a series of individual videos, with each video running approximately 45 minutes long. There’s a thumbnail preview for each video you may watch below.

Part II expands the discussion of public accommodations laws by addressing three questions: 1) Is unjust racial violence the alternative to public accommodations laws? 2) Are public accommodations laws constitutional? 3) Is discrimination intrinsically wrong and bigoted?
