Will Chamberlain on Ronald Reagan's Favorite Magazine 'Human Events'


Before we talk about big tech, you were the publisher, human events, fabulous, and newspaper. For those who are not familiar with it, because it's like this silent conservative success story, what say a little bit about human events before we move on to big tech. Oh, sure, yeah. It was Ronald Reagan favorite magazine, but it was basically defunct for about 5 years from about 2014 to 2019. At the time I bought it with Raheem kassam and had him as EIC. We split pretty quickly, but I think we brought back a very higher a little bit of a higher aesthetic. A lot of the early human events articles, especially when I was publishing, were really beautiful art from Ian miles Chong, who's actually on Twitter, one of his most people know I'm just from his tweets, but you wouldn't know that he's actually a very talented graphic artist. And so much of the beautiful art that was on the articles was there. And we just had a lot of very good interesting contributions. I was really trying to push at the time, push the right towards this kind of more almost like pragmatic ruthlessness and achieving things. It kind of connects to big tech because when I was on the aggressive action on big tech, bandwagon back in 2018, 2019 when most conservatives, I think we're still a little hesitant about trying to regulate it because they come from this predisposition. Small government, small government type thing. And we were just really trying to push, no, no, no, that's, in this case, that's a self defeating principle.
