He's now started a podcast and YouTube channel called "American Optimist.” He highlights positive things that his innovator friends create: https://www.youtube.com/c/AmericanOpt...

Social worker Ursula Newell-Davis helped kids with special needs for over 20 years. But now Louisiana says she can't start her own service helping special needs kids because, get this, licensing and regulating people like her would put a "burden on regulators.” -------- Don't miss a single video from Stossel TV. Sign up here: https://www.johnstossel.com/#subscribe --------- Ursula could be helping lots of kids. But she can’t, because “Louisiana wants to limit how many agencies they have to regulate,” she says. “That makes it easy for the state." Easy for this state? Why is that a law? The video above explains.

Why on earth do people willingly wait in line to use a public bathroom at a park? -------- Don't miss a single video from Stossel TV.

Socialism, Nazism, progressivism… these “isms” do so much damage. ---- Don't miss the weekly video from Stossel TV. Sign up here: https://johnstossel.activehosted.com/f/1 ---- But people still believe. Matt Kibbe of Free the People created a video series called “The Deadly-isms" to inform people about them. Pundits talk about these things in terms of right vs left. But Kibbe points out "when you think about it, they sort of feel the same. You still have government control of businesses and factories, you still have no freedom of speech... no freedom of association, there’s hardly any freedom at all.” Kibbe says "none of these ‘isms’ have what it takes to save the world. Only freedom and voluntary cooperation can do that. I’ll be on your side as long as you don’t hurt people and don’t take their stuff." Stossel says “that’s a political philosophy to believe in!"

American activists demand new "fair" policies, like banning "hate speech," "reasonable gun rules," and "adding balance to the Supreme Court.” Those ideas sound nice, but those very things have already been tried in Venezuela. They failed. ---- Don't miss the weekly video from Stossel TV. Sign up here: https://johnstossel.activehosted.com/f/1 ---- Andrés Guilarte fled Venezuela, and now warns Americans: don't do what we did. For example, Venezuela passed a hate speech law to deal with "fascism" and “hate." In reality, a Reuters investigation found that the law has been used to jail critics of the government. The video above gives more examples of bad ideas from Venezuela that American progressives now want to try.

Asian Americans are suing Harvard for illegally discriminating against them. The lawsuit forced Harvard to release admissions data which reveal that admitted Asian applicants score 22 points higher on the SAT than whites and 63 points higher than blacks. ---- So you don’t miss the weekly video from Stossel TV, sign up here: https://johnstossel.activehosted.com/f/1 ---- Harvard admits to using race as a factor in admissions for the sake of diversity. But the school says it does so without any hard quotas or race-based points system -- that they merely consider it informally. Past Supreme Courts have allowed that. But the Asians suing Harvard argue that the university gives them artificially low personality ratings to keep their admissions rate down, describing Asian Americans as " boring little grade grubbers."

Students today are kept away from words and ideas they may find disturbing. "The Silencing” author, Kirsten Powers, says colleges are “ground zero” in the fight for free speech, but George Mason Professor Jeremy Mayer says complaints about censorship are right wing paranoia. ---- So you don’t miss the weekly video from Stossel TV, sign up here: https://johnstossel.activehosted.com/f/1 ---- Powers also argues that leftists have gone from opposing censorship to supporting it. They even attack their own for stepping outside left-wing orthodoxy; people who say the wrong thing lose jobs. A Stossel Classic from 2015.
