The Familiar Road to Socialism

Broadcast Running Time: 01:19:16

"History doesn't repeat itself, but it does rhyme:" a quote attributed to author Mark Twain. We see today the seedlings of socialism beginning to burst through here in the U.S. and it looks awfully familiar. First up this week is Andrei Znamenski (notesonliberty.com), Professor of History at the University of Memphis. He grew up in the Soviet Union before coming here in 1991 and is an expert in the lead-up to the Bolshevik movement of 1917. He describes the beginning of communism in Russia where they would shut down intellectual debate, control the media, and institute a repressive cancel culture. Where have we heard that before? The Christian Church has been affected by this change, with some leaders and pastors compromising the Church's doctrines to cater to the secularized culture. Back with us this week after a long hiatus is Ken Ham (answersingenesis.org), CEO and Founder of Answers in Genesis, the Creation Museum, and the world-renowned Ark Encounter. He looks to help prepare Christians to take a bold stand, defend God's Word, and take on the worldly culture. The Church should cease compromising because in the troubled times ahead, with the enemies already inside the gates, the solid foundation of Truth will be a much needed weapon. Finally this week, we take a look at censorship and the violation of the free speech rights of millions of Americans. Wrapping up the show is May Davis (iwf.org), Visiting Fellow at the Independent Women's Forum. She discusses President Trump's class action lawsuit against social media companies, the need to apply fair rules to everyone equally, and how the repercussions of Big Tech's censorship could help change the culture and founding principles of the country.

Jake Klyczek: School World Order

Broadcast Running Time: 31:57

Throughout the past several decades, there has been a shift from teaching children how to think to teaching children what to think, and not really teaching a whole lot in that last category.  Joining us today for an educational history lesson is teacher and author Jake Klyczek (schoolworldorder.info).  He looks not only at the different Marxist attempts to indoctrinate children in the past half century, but also at the western society level, with erosion of sovereignty and the latest technological push to a social credit system.  The time has come in every arena, especially churches, for people to wake up and resist this Marxist takeover.

Dr. Paul Seaton: Today’s ‘We’ vs The Past’s ‘We’

Broadcast Running Time: 24:49

We hold these truths to be self-evident… Familiar words from our nation's Declaration. Dr. Paul Seaton (stmarys.edu), Professor of Philosophy at St. Mary's Seminary and University, joins us today to compare the 'we' from the Declaration's time to today's 'we.' There used to be a shared belief in the foundational principles of this country, even if you ideologically disagreed on other issues. No such commonality exists today. But the progressive's long march through the institutions has sped up recently and people are beginning to wake up and fight back. One way they're fighting back is with new institutions that uphold our foundations and teach the truth.

Andrei Znamenski: Top Down Planning…Again

Broadcast Running Time: 31:06

Every time socialism has been tried, it has failed and it has failed partly because government tried planning every aspect of everyone's life: an endeavor doomed to crash and burn every time.  Joining us today is Andrei Znamenski (notesonliberty.com), Professor of History at the University of Memphis.  He moved here after his childhood in Russia and has studied the lead-up to the Bolshevik movement.  He describes the beginning of communism in Russia and how the powers that be shut down intellectual debate, controlled the media, and instituted a repressive cancel culture.  I think it's obvious the U.S. is on a very similar path today.  Consider us warned.

Jacob Howland: Anti-Educators

Broadcast Running Time: 31:24

Education was supposed to provide us with stellar learning, but unfortunately that is not happening. Is there any hope? Joining us today is Jacob Howland (city-journal.org), Professor Emeritus of Philosophy at the University of Tulsa. He draws on his many years of experience in higher learning to show how classical education has been slowly removed from curricula only to be replaced by slogans and inaccurate history. The culprits are more the educrats than teachers, but many teachers go along with it. So is there any hope? Now that the plan has been thoroughly exposed, some teachers and many parents are pushing back to reclaim what education was always supposed to be.
