In Bad Blood, John Carreyrou charts the rise and fall of Theranos, a Silicon Valley start-up that achieved rock star status, and billions in valuation due, in no small part, to its founder, the young, charismatic and photogenic Elizabeth Holmes. The uncritical, deeply unserious press turned her into a feminist superstar because, well, she fit a preferred narrative.
Think of all the horrors of the 20th Century: The Holocaust. The Bolshevik Revolution. The Cold War. Were it not for the assassination of one Austro-Hungarian archduke in 1914, none of those events would have ever happened. Historian and author Andrew Roberts explains.
The decades-long “Cold War” (1947-1989) between the United States and the Soviet Union was so named because the two global powers never came to direct blows. Yet, the war was not without its victims. In fact, millions of Cubans, Koreans and Vietnamese suffered under Communist tyranny. In this video, Renowned British historian Andrew Roberts explains why “The Cold War” could just as easily be called “The Third World War.”
A superb history lesson in five minutes by the great British historian Andrew Roberts, produced by Prager University.
Margaret Thatcher (1925 – 2013), one of Britain’s most consequential Prime Ministers, passed away yesterday. She took a bankrupt country, a country in the death grip of socialist policies, and restored the basics of free market capitalism, while bravely defying thuggish unions that had turned the streets of Great Britain into garbage dumps.
When looking back at the genius of Margaret Thatcher, Seraphic Secret is struck by her ability to articulate coherent Conservative ideas in a way that anyone can understand.
More than anything, we, American Conservatives, need such articulate political figures.
