PRAGER U WILL MAKE YOU DUMBER
How do you consume information? Why are you inclined to go to the sources that you go to? Most of us don’t actually ask ourselves these questions, opting instead to learn passively and choose sources from force of habit.

MILO YIANNOPOLOUS: STAY THE HELL OFF MY CAMPUS
I started my freshman year at Berkeley as the school kicked off the 50th anniversary of the Free Speech Movement. Each student starting their time at Cal that year received a copy of Freedom’s Orator, a biography on FSM leader Mario Savio. As incoming students, we were motivated to follow in Savio’s footsteps: to not be afraid to make our voices heard — and to speak out against injustice. Three years later, as a bleach-blonde bullshit merchant looks to build his brand by co-opting Savio’s legacy and promoting injustice on the campus I call home, now’s as good a time to speak out as any.
