"What's So Great About America"
As in the book of the same name, Dinesh D'Souza gives his most auto-biographical talk about how America has changed both his own life and the history of the world. America's principles, systems of government, and value of individual rights has made it into the most prosperous and powerful nation. This talk is a fascinating look at what makes America so great.
