Episode 36: What can a small group of people actually accomplish?

Michael Schaus

Free to Offend Episode 36 | Guest: Ned Ryun, American Majority

What can a small group of activists actually accomplish… aside from little things like fundamentally altering the trajectory of humankind—because that is effectively what a handful of American colonists did in the late 1700’s.

Ned Ryun, founder and CEO of American Majority, joined the program to discuss his new book: The Adversaries: A story of Boston and Bunker Hill. He also discusses the way in which small, active and engaged groups of citizens can have an outsized impact on politics, policy and our system of government.

Communications Director

Michael Schaus is communications director at the Nevada Policy Research Institute and is responsible for managing the organization’s messaging with the public, the media and NPRI’s membership. He is also currently a policy advisor for the Heartland Institute.

Prior to joining NPRI, Michael worked in media as a national columnist, a political humorist and a radio talk show host in Denver, Colorado. Active in both print and radio, he shared his insights and free-market economics perspective with large local and national audiences.

Michael became interested in economic theory earlier in life while employed in the financial sector. As the liaison between a local community bank and the Federal Reserve, he acquired an in-depth understanding of just how manipulative big government can be toward industry and enterprise. It was that experience with big-government intervention that initially led him into public-affairs commentary.
