Well-known writer, actor, economist and TV personality Ben Stein, acclaimed for his role in the 1986 movie “Ferris Bueller’s Day Off,” made his way to Liberty University to speak at convocation Monday, Nov. 5.
Taking advantage of the looming Election Day, Stein focused his address on progress, recovery, the collapse of the family and of education, as well as how the upcoming president can improve all of this.
“The secret sauce is hard work,” Stein said. “We don’t need government subsidies … we need the government to get out of the way.”
Hard work and acting as God intended us to act toward one another will help get America back to where it needs to be, Stein said.
“It comes down to something that seems fairly simple: behaving decently toward our fellow human beings as God commands us to,” he said. “Work to make a better world.”
According to Stein, there is a lack of serious work ethic in the United States. Yet, the best way to get people interested in working for their pay again is simple, Stein said.
“Stop paying them not to work,” Stein said.
