Biased. Couldn't get past the first lecture (and I tried several times) because of the professor's cherry-picking opinions and events that served his narrative. Since socialism is a transitionary approach from capitalism to communism, how can you understand it without a honest appraisal of capitalism? As for his dad losing his job representing the volatility of capitalism, what would you call people waiting a year for urgent healthcare in countries with socialized medicine? I don't mind opinions that differ from my own - in fact, I watch to broaden my views - but I don't want propaganda. Disappointing. Years ago TGC's content was more dry but even-handed; now it's professional but one-sided.

Excellent. Fast paced, but completely understandable.
