I was recently at an event in Loudoun County, Virginia, and the organizer of the event said something profound right at the start. He introduced himself and then said, "...and I am a dad. That's where my credentials start and stop." I don't know if he realizes how profound that statement is in the present circumstances, but it struck me enough to want to share it with you. If you are a dad, or a mom, or a shareholder in a company, or an everyday person and participant in some society you hope to see become or stay free, you are credentialed to push back against this rising tyranny and Theoretical nonsense. That's enough. That's all it takes. You don't need a fancy degree or especially a Ph.D. You don't need to be a professor or even a professional. Just being an everyday person who knows right from wrong is more than enough. Join me on this episode of my subscribers-only podcast, James Lindsay OnlySubs, to hear what I think about normal people standing up and speaking up, as inspired by this fully credentialed dad in Northern Virginia.
