Sometimes, when things change and a paradigm shift is upon you, it helps to review how we got to this point.  On today's podcast, John looks at the long progressive march through America's institutions for the past century, as well as the change liberalism underwent from classic liberalism to Neo-Marxism.  There were right-leaning push-backs with the Republican revolution in 1994 and the Tea Party in 2008.  The woke crowd woke up and you began to see "racist!" and "white supremacist" and other epithets emerge, only to grow stronger by the time Donald Trump came on the scene.  John offers suggestions on how to overcome the current crisis.  It involves understanding what the crisis is and being able to talk to people on the other side and let them know you care.  And of course, it always helps to pray for them.

In this time of intense division, it is easy to see those from the other side of the ideological aisle as being the enemy.  But the first step in bridging the divide is to try and have a conversation.  John reaches out on today's podcast to Mark Sommer, an award-winning radio and print journalist – and noted progressive – to have that conversation.  They use climate change and alternative fuels as their conversation catalyst.  Unless people can push aside their differences and come up with realistic solutions that work on the ground, the divide doesn't get bridged and nothing is ever accomplished.

We have received a lot of emails and comments on social media over the past month, and today John sits down in part 1 of a two-part series to answer some of our listeners' great comments and questions.  Topics covered include why some people think this country is awash in white supremacist ideologies, who's really responsible for human rights issues in Palestine, and the United Kingdom's progression from a mainstay of western civilization to Marxism light and back again.

How did we get from the solid American experiment that led to the greatest country in history to today's attempted Marxist takeover? In this week's premium boralogue, John looks at two streams of toxic thought that has pervaded our culture for the past century: Marxism and postmodernism. Contrast those with America's solid foundation of Judeo-Christian values and you see the stark contrast we experience every day in this country.
