Have we unknowingly wandered into George Orwell's dystopian world from his famous novel 1984? Manipulation of language; punishment of dissent; control of thoughts and actions; these are just a few of the realities for which we find ourselves. There is some backlash to the phenomena of self-censorship and political correctness run amok, how else would you explain the unlikely rise of Trump? Luckily there are a group of people out there who are willing to talk freely and address politics and culture without adhering to partisan talking points. You may not agree with what people have to say but our Constitution guarantees they have the right to say it. Gray Winsler is one of those people. He is a YouTuber who is known for his defense of the first amendment and his insightful critique of American politics. His unique story starts with his unconventional education which began after he left school 2 weeks into the eighth grade. A few years later, his parents had to drive him to his first college classes because he was too young for a driver's license. Gray is the creator of several viral videos based on his insightful commentary on Donald Trump's unlikely bid for the presidency and the culture which made it happen. He's a smart guy and has a great future ahead of him!
