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.
How far has Western civilization declined and is it reversible? Is it realistic to believe that we will continue to enjoy the freedoms that were established at the founding of this country once the pro-Marxism crowd fundamentally transforms that foundation? Here today to discuss is Mark Tapson (marktapson.com), Journalism Fellow at the Horowitz Freedom Center. We need to stand up, speak out, and start focusing on important topics instead of getting wrapped up in frivolous controversies. Will we be able to slow or even stop the long march through the institutions? Our arguments are strong and will win the debate. We just need to take the fight to them, reverse the long march, and take back our institutions.
What happens when you get together two broadcasters with nearly a century of experience between them to talk about the state of the world today? You're about to find out as John welcomes to the show Leighton Smith (newstalkzb.co.nz), long-time radio talk show host in New Zealand and host of the Leighton Smith podcast. In part 1 of our two-part interview, Leighton and John discuss their respective backgrounds in broadcasting, how Marxism has slowly infiltrated Western society, the dysfunctionality of the climate change argument, and the real definition of truth.
A common question asked today: why are things happening the way they're happening? There just doesn't seem to be any reason or logic in any of this. In this week's boralogue, John looks at the stages postmodernists and Marxists go through to destroy the country, all of which explains exactly what's happening today. In order to take us down, they have to knock out our foundations and destabilize society. It is a war to fundamentally transform our country. And it's getting to a point where we can no longer hunker down and hope it passes us by. We need to stand up for what is right before it's too late.
In the case against Michael Flynn, what can the misuse of the law by the Justice Department and the FBI teach us? In this week's boralogue, John looks at the erosion of absolute truth by postmodernism and how that has led to a severe lowering of absolute standards, both in the media and within government. Corruption results and reform is needed. That reform can only be an insistence on the truth.
In the wake of the government's current misuse of the law, John recalls a 2013 interview with Harvey Silverglate that shows that what happened now is nothing new. There are enough rules and regulations on the books to make someone guilty if the government needs them to be.
Christian churches and schools have been slowly infiltrated by a progressive ideology. Attorney and writer Mark Pulliam (www.misruleoflaw.com) joins us to discuss how a woke ideology along with Marxist economics is being taught in university religious studies programs, using faith to propagate progressive narratives.
They say you shouldn't cry over spilt milk, but many are doing just that as some farmers are forced to throw away their dairy products. Here to give his expert analysis on this is former dairy farmer and good friend to John and the show, Jack Beukelman. He shares the ins and outs of the dairy industry and the problem with oversupply during a crisis.
