Dave Rubin of The Rubin Report talks to Ben Shapiro of The Daily Wire about his new book “The Authoritarian Moment”, which COVID experts he trusts, signs that we now live in an illiberal democracy, and why college is a scam. In this clip Ben teaches you how to lie with statistics. He explains how mainstream media manipulates statistics to make COVID infection rates appear far worse than they actually are. Ben also describes why he doesn’t fear authoritarianism from the government, but from cultural institutions that no longer encourage critical thinking and instead encourage silencing dissent. He shares frightening poll results that show how most people, except the far left, are afraid of talking about their politics publicly. He gives his prediction of what center left liberals of the intellectual dark web like Sam Harris and Bari Weiss will have to do to prevent themselves from becoming victims of cancel culture. Ben also shares the story of his nice bucket challenge on Twitter and why so few liberals took him up on it.
