Almost immediately after Rush Limbaugh passed away, people who did not agree with his ideology began disparaging his memory in very contemptible ways. Are we getting comfortable with this type of hatred? Boyd Matheson (deseret.com), Opinion Editor at the Deseret News, joins us today to discuss how we got to this point of vitriolic division. He lists the various ways politicians and the media get us to hate each other and shares ways we can counteract that. The solution may be found in our younger generations.
Why are we losing sixty to eighty percent of our youth to postmodern, Neo-Marxist ideologies by the time they come out of college? Why are absolute truths constantly being challenged in the marketplace of ideas in favor of relativistic and often self-contradictory definitions?
Today's throwback program features segments of John Loeffler’s address entitled, “Antichrist Doesn’t Wear Tights,” focusing on the effects of deceptive dialectical thought flooding into the West and the Church. The address was delivered at Koinonia Institute’s Conference in Coeur d’Alene, Idaho on November 18, 2006.
When you go against the norms of the far left, there is a chance that you can discuss the differences with them, but most likely you will fall victim to cancel culture. Dr. Jeff Myers (www.summit.org), President of Summit Ministries is with us today to discuss his organization's methods to counteract Marxist thought in the classroom. Apologizing in the hopes that they will forgive you will still get you canceled.
Dr. Myers asserts that it's best when responding to cancelers not to name call and try to destroy like they do. If they're willing to talk, it's possible to find a solution. But in other instances when your grade or your job is on the line, a different strategy may be needed, such as taking an accuser to court. Sometimes though, people get to the point that no matter the circumstance, they just have to say, "I will not sit down. I will not shut up."
Author and historian Bill Federer (www.americanminute.com) returns for part 2 of our conversation on the ravages of socialism. On today's podcast, he focuses on modern-day socialism from Pol Pot to Hitler to Mao to the USSR – it's been tried many times but it never succeeds. Modern socialism, is, though, far more organized than in times past and has instituted steps to create crises in order to offer solutions that benefit the State and erode the people's freedoms.
Bill looks at the current riots in this country, the planning that goes into them, the training of the people on the ground (most of whom aren't from the area), and the money behind it. It is awfully similar to the rise of socialism in the last century. Ultimately, it's all about the Marxist State ruling with an iron fist and gradually wiping out the freedoms this country was founded on.
