In October, French President Emmanuel Macron announced strict measures to crack down on what he called ‘radical Islam.’ But what is his definition of that and what are his measures? Mark Durie (markdurie.com), Director of the Institute for Spiritual Awareness, joins us to discuss President Macron’s ineffective plans for these measures and what that will mean for adherents to other religions. If you can’t recognize the truth of a problem, your policies will always fail. And failing policies are symptoms of a failing worldview that is not based in reality.
Media outlets and fact-checking websites are always beholden to a narrative. It makes reporting the facts surrounding an issue impossible. John and Producer Steve look at how both right and left media outlets spin the news to prop up a point of view that only gives you part of the story. ‘Bad’ ideas are dismissed as propaganda so that the media’s agenda can be furthered. But no one is getting the whole story. When media work as social activists instead of journalists, the truth is brushed aside.
Finally this week, we fire up the way back machine to revisit the issue of a constitutional convention – or a Con-Con. We play an interaction between two guests: first from December 1992, Don Fotheringham, an opponent to the Con-Con, and second from June 2016, Jenna Ellis, a proponent of a convention. Don contends that opening the door to a convention would allow malignant actors to later destroy our country. Jenna argues that because there is a specified agenda and a very involved amendment process, it would be all but impossible to hijack.
