A Wake-Up Call From the Land Down Under

Have you seen what’s going on in Australia? If not, let me paint the picture for you: this country has some of the strictest lockdown rules in the world right now. For starters, two of Australia’s largest states are testing out an app that would force citizens to check in by sending location data and facial photos to local police, proving adherence to quarantine requirements. To make matters even more terrifying, the state of Queensland is rolling out quarantine facilities called “WellCamps,” where those who test positive for Covid must stay until they’re deemed safe to return to their normal lives… or what’s left of them. Police are even monitoring TikTok to bust people who dare to defy their lockdown orders. The scariest part? We’re not talking about these horrific abuses of civil liberties where you might typically expect them: say, Venezuela, Cuba, Soviet Russia, or China. You know, authoritarian

Biden, Vaccine Tyranny, and Your Family

Yesterday, Joe Biden announced a new executive order. Its core demand was that businesses with 100 or more employees require vaccination of their workforce against Covid-19. Many of us have been warning about such a stroke of tyranny for a long time… even so, it’s pretty horrifying to see our most cynical predictions become a reality. It’s a bit long, but I encourage each of you to watch yesterday’s Presidential address in its entirety. Not because it will be fun, but because you need to know just how much disdain the leader of the free world harbors for those who defy his wishes. “This is not about freedom or personal choice,” he snapped from his podium. “It’s about protecting yourself and those around you, the people you work with, the people you care about, the people you love… “We’ve been patient. But our patience is wearing thin, and your refusal

Can State Governments Stop Local Tyranny?

If you care about freedom as much as I do, you probably have a negative knee-jerk reaction when the government tries to ban things. We’ve been given no shortage of reasons to feel that way. When politicians and bureaucrats come up with new ways to “fix” our communities, they tend to do nothing but waste our money, infringe on our freedoms, and cause even bigger problems. But is it possible for the government to use its power the right way? I would argue that the answer is yes… Though the circumstances need to be pretty specific. Take the craziness of mask mandates, vaccine passports, and everything else government tyrants have tried to push on us in the last 18 months. I imagine most of us reading this newsletter would agree that forcing people to wear masks or inject a certain medicine is wrong. The cracks might start to show when

Turns Out, Twitter Socialists Really Hate the Tuttle Twins

A few months ago, the Tuttle Twins team filmed a new social media ad. In it, a young boy in a soviet-esque fur hat spits communist talking points in a fake Russian accent. His mother bemoans the indoctrination of kids with far-left ideology and talks about how great the Tuttle Twins books are at teaching kids the ideas that matter. The goal of the campaign was to be funny… Of course, every good joke has some truth behind it. Perhaps that’s why thousands of people on what I like to call hammer-and-sickle-Twitter got really, really worked up over our little video. Over the past two weeks, clips of the ad have been circulated by various left-wing accounts. As they made the rounds, the discourse ranged from rude to downright abhorrent and unrepeatable. But apparently trash-talking us on social media wasn’t enough. Since our ad campaign started getting blowback, our Google

The Public School Plot to Revolutionize Your Kids

One of the most powerful influences on our children is their teachers. An educator, with their access to kids and control over what they learn, has a unique ability to shape the future. And this week has revealed some terrifying insights into how public school teachers view their power. Cecily Myart-Cruz is the President of the United Teachers Los Angeles, a powerful union with a strong grip on California’s public school system. Myart-Cruz was interviewed by Los Angeles Magazine this week, and the resulting profile was jam-packed with nonsense and terrifying rants. For starters, take this bit on learning loss during lockdowns: “There is no such thing as learning loss. Our kids didn’t lose anything. It’s OK that our babies may not have learned all their times tables. They learned resilience. They learned survival. They learned critical-thinking skills. They know the difference between a riot and a protest. They know

My Favorite Socialist Magazine Gets a Taste of Socialism

If you’ve been getting these emails for a while, you might remember that time a socialist magazine tried to make fun of us… and accidentally caused a huge spike in our book sales. For any newsletter newcomers, a brief refresher: Current Affairs is a self-proclaimed socialist publication. Last fall, they wrote a hit piece on the Tuttle Twins series, attempting to paint our books as something along the lines of “bad propaganda.” I can only imagine that this was intended to discredit our message, but the complete opposite happened. It would seem that condemnation by a socialist magazine proved to a lot of parents that our message was important… Flash forward to this week, and Current Affairs is back in the headlines for an equally hilarious reason: union-busting. You see, one of the magazine’s writers recently attempted to form a workers’ co-op, which is essentially a union. Given Karl Marx’s
