Don't Know Much Ideology

Another course offering is now available from Prager University. This one features the always informative (and amusing) Jonah Goldberg:

According to popular myth, if you hold conservative political views, you're a rigid ideologue, unwilling to compromise. But if you hold liberal political views, you're practical and open minded. Best selling author, Jonah Goldberg, explains how this myth got started and why it's wrong in this Prager University course.

If you enjoy Goldberg's five minute video on ideology, you'll want to read the entire chapter he has on it in his highly entertaining book The Tyranny of Cliches: How Liberals Cheat in the War of Ideas.
