[Question:] Source: LYBIO.net
One of the things that you mentioned in your speech was that sooner or later they’re going to have to come out of college, and live with the reality of life, and making a living and doing these types of things. There is enough kids in the millennial that have now come out of the colleges. How are they faring? What are they doing?
[Benjamin Aaron Shapiro:] Source: LYBIO.net
I mean they’re faring poorly. They’re shocked, I mean their kids who are now suing their colleges – there is an actual lawsuit. Suing their colleges because they’re saying I was promised a job, I was promised an income after I come out of here. Right the Occupy Wall Street movement was all disenchanted college kids who got out after that Lesbian Dance Theory major and thought they’re going to make six figures somewhere. And it turns out nobody pays to watch people theorize about lesbian dance. So you know – so this is – so they end up, you know, going and living in tents and in Central Park and pooping on themselves.
So it’s – you know it’s – life is a rough teacher. What the left has tried to do is extend kind of the period of adolescence indefinitely, right.
So now you’re 26 and you’re on your parents health care.
Okay by age 20, by age 26 I’d been married for a couple of years and I was two years away from having a kid and you know – I already had two degrees and four published books. You know it turns – and by the way I’m – that’s actually – I’m not even a success story if you go back 50 years, right.
50 years by the age of 26 you were supposed to be fully ensconced in your job. You were supposed to have like three kids by that point.
What we’ve done is prolonged adolescence indefinitely. And so what Obama’s goal is, what the Left’s goal is, what Bernie Sanders, Hillary, they have the same goal. And the same goal is to extend college out, right.
College is not a place that’s kind of a break from reality, college is the new reality. So we have to make all of human life like college. And this is what they think Europe is, which is why Europe has collapsed – Europe is going to collapse. And it’s being invaded by foreign forces and they’re going – the barbarians are at the gates. And Europe is going to fall apart. And it is falling apart.
So we can play this game, but it’s not going to end well. So then the problem is that because the education is so poor instead of reacting against their teachers at college who told them everything was going to be hunky-dory instead of having the kind of All Quiet on the Western Front moment, you know where the former student goes back to his classroom after World War I, he’s in the middle of World War I, he goes back and he yells at his professor and he says you’re telling all these kids the wrong thing, you’re telling them that war is awesome.
Instead of them going back and yelling at their professors, they said no it just shows my professor was right because society is unjust, right?
The lack of my $100,000 salary, that’s because society is mean. And so we have to transform the society. And that’s why young people, again 40% back speech codes in American life, this is why I think the last poll was nearing or over 40% of young people are okay with socialism, like the actual socialism, because they don’t know anything. They’ve been taught stupidity. And how they feel is all that matters. I mean there’s a video that’s going around the Internet getting all sorts of play about income inequality.
Income inequality is the stupidest issue. Income inequality means nothing, right. I mean I’m – I have a lot of income inequality with Bill Gates, but I’m doing pretty well and I don’t care that Bill Gates is doing really well. The only thing we should all care about is that there are poor people, we should figure out how poor people can do better and not how to make Bill Gates less rich. But what – this video is going around and saying here’s a poll of what Americans think the wealth distribution should look like, and here is what the wealth distribution actually looks like.
And I watched this video in bewilderment and young people love it. And I watched this video in bewilderment saying who told you that you get to tell the universe how wealth is distributed, right.
Who told you that you have a moral say as to how wealth is distributed. It’s immoral, it’s evil, it’s wrong. You’re going to have to steal people’s labor from them. But people are not told this.
And so they think that their own subjective vision of what reality should look like should govern what reality actually looks like. And it’s only later after 80 years of Communist failure that they realize oh that – and hundreds of millions of people dead that they realize oh that was a bad idea.

Banks are in the business of lending. When they take the money in they don’t just stick it in Al Gore’s fake lockbox they actually lend the money back out to people to actually create new businesses and new products.
You had an investor right when you started TYT you were given $4 million by Buddy Roemer to start TYT that’s great, that’s the way business should work right? But that money had they didn’t come from bunch of poor people buying hamburgers it came from a very, very wealthy guy who gave you money to create a business a lot of people want to patronize.
If you want better products and better services you need more investment in the products and services. The basic name trickle-down economics.
The basic names trickle-down economics is not something that any conservative even proposed. It’s a leftist revision of what economics actually is because you’re not giving me the money, it was my money in the first place created through voluntary transactions that I had with others.
I’ve not stolen money from either from anyone neither have you and the idea that money has to be forcibly taken from you and handed to somebody at the bottom-end of the economic spectrum is somehow job the economy that made job McDonald’s but is not going to job all of the creation of the products and services that make all of our lives much better today than they were thirty years ago in terms of the stuff we have access to.

I think I’ll let you respond to that briefly then we’ll switch topic.
[Cenk Kadir Uygur:] Source: LYBIO.net
Yeah so I’ll try to answer that as briefly as I can and I’ll go on to your questions. So when you – when you talk about hey the banks are they’re not going to just keep the money they’re going to put it out and, and lend it to people unless they decided to do their own investments which is what they did because we repealed Glass–Steagall. So it’s not as simple as oh I have money so then I will now utilize it or I’ll lend it out. So that is way over simplistic, speaking of over simplistic to say that oh well they’ll go buy hamburgers with it, come on.
You’re the one who said –
[Cenk Kadir Uygur:] Source: LYBIO.net
So the middle class is struggling right now and we’ve turned this into a Walmart economy where people are getting $7.25 and that if you’re getting around $10; I think that’s about 15,000 a year. So don’t like that is serious pain and difficulties, so if you give those people money it’s not like ah I just want to go get a hamburger.
No they have to eat.
[Cenk Kadir Uygur:]
No they desperately need that money and they yes they will spend it on in back into the economy so that’s an economic fact.
And so then for the 88th time we have to find a balance where you have provided an incentive for people to save and invest and you have provided an incentive for people to be able to put money back into the economy and to be able to live and it’s not – and taxes are not stealing from you. So you’re right I want a business.
So in order for people my employees to get to my company you know what they have to do they have to drive on roads. Okay, so it’s not stealing for me to build that road; that helps my business they had to go to school; the fact that they went to public schools allows them to work for me; all these things are things that I benefit from.
I didn’t build that company by myself every single person that works there helped me to build that company.
And that’s what it means to work together. And so to answer Steve’s question finally, look you know what, what is this Congress going to do on tax reform and Ben and I disagree on this too because we just talked about it a second ago.
And this is just political prognostication. But I think that the Republicans will definitely pass tax reform. And I and the reason I say that is because the Republican Party at this point is completely dependent on their donors and by the way don’t get me wrong.
The Democratic Party is also largely dependent on their donors I think the Republicans are tiny bit more corrupt, but so I think that I think, I think that – their donors are going to demand those tax cuts.
And if I am right and we’ll all see this you know because it’s something that’s going to happen later not something that has happened. They will do everything, they will move mountains to make sure that those rich donors and corporations will get their tax cuts.
Okay, so this is this is an interesting case where I say to Cenk’s prognostication from his mouth to God’s ears and he says about mine from my mouth to God’s ears I don’t think they’re going to pass anything, because I think that there’s a high-level incompetence inside the Republican caucus and it is pretty fractious, but I do want to go back to a couple of points cuz you actually had some major thematic points.
You talked about roads and the fact that we need roads in order get to work – this is point Elizabeth Warren made and obviously a point that President Obama made at the time.
I don’t think anyone argues that we don’t need roads to get to work. The problem is that when you’re talking about roads as a percentage of the budget we are talking about a tiny, tiny, tiny percentage of the Federal budget and of the State budget, and even of the local budget.
So the idea that you’re justifying massive tax rates on corporations in order to pay for roads is just intellectually dishonest. To take tiny part – the stuff that we agree on the government should spend on is a tiny percentage of spending, right it is all the other stuff that we disagree on.
As far as the idea that I’m somehow being – you know – dismissive toward people who are buying hamburgers. I’m not I’m saying the people who are poor and need to buy hamburgers to feed their children; they don’t have the money to invest in building an iPhone because when you’re just trying to get by and you are living in a Walmart subsistence economy you’re using that money to buy the products and services you need to get by, that does not create new products and services that become cheaper over time through competition.
You need somebody to make those investments.
You said this about Glass–Steagall for example. You said the banks they might make their own investments in what, in what? They’re not investing in themselves. I mean they have to take that money and then they have to use it to invest in something else places like Apple, places some that fail and some that succeed. This idea that banks are somehow evils is just not the case unless you’re talking about them working incongr – here you and I – agree working incongruity with a Congress with the legislature that is attempting to give them kickbacks both you and I agree on this.
So and finally as far as the idea that Republicans pass tax cuts because they’re beholding to their donors okay and Democrats pass tax increases because the unions get them hundreds of millions of dollars every year and I don’t see Democrats complain about this.
Uh… so you got me there. The unions give money to the Democrats. So am I …
Are you angry about that, I mean does that upset you as much as bankers giving money to republicans.
No, no, corporations give way more than the unions. So…
It depends on the corporations, that’s not really true.
[Cenk Uygur:] Source: LYBIO.NET
That is okay. Look it up you can Google it, it’s really easy. So do I object to taking out Union money from politics hell no, I don’t object take it all out. Take the Union money out, take the corporate guy money out – take all the big money out they’re supposed to represent us and not the donors. No matter who the donors are.
So in terms of the question that you asked Glass–Steagall, are they investing in things?
No. I have a literal answer for you oftentimes what they do is financial derivatives, in fact that’s the majority of what they do. And financial derivatives is simply gambling that’s what crashed the 2008 economy and, and what is so damaging about the removal Glass–Steagall is now they could do their financial derivative gambling with depositor money, boys isn’t that nice.
They take your money and they gamble with it and if they lose well that’s a sad day for you but if they win they keep the profits. You know what that is that’s privatizing the gains and socializing the losses.
So it’s not, it’s not that banks are evil of course they’re not evil. It’s just that they’re driven to make more money. Of course that is the whole point of maximizing profit, so if we say hey banks you’re allowed to go and buy politicians although the Supreme Court would say no they’re just talking to them. They just gave them billions of dollars they’re just having a conversation right? Just because they given billions of dollars is they don’t, do they want something in return? Of course they want something in return. And that’s our money, so what they got it – what they got was laws passed by politicians to remove Glass–Steagall and yes Clinton and Gingrich – yes both parties are guilty on that but now the Democrats want to put it back and the Republican don’t and they took our depositor money and they gambled with it.
And if you thought they – if you gambled you get to keep all the profits and if you lost it didn’t affect you at all you would probably gamble a lot of money too. And you would take a lot of risk until you crash the economy and that’s exactly what happened.
So I want to just add one you’ll respond, and he will respond to it to you’ve talked a lot about the corruption in politics.
