The Free Expression Institute just handed out awards meant to honor – well, free expression – but the awards ended up going to people in social media and Big Tech who have been instrumental in censoring conservatives. Joining us today from Massachusetts is G. Tod Slone (theamericandissident.org), Founder of the American Dissident. He looks at the numerous violations of free speech occurring in society today and how, even though we have the First Amendment, many people feel the need to self-censor in order to steer clear of hassle. And if we don't self-censor, then the tech overlords will do it for us.
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.
There is a new totalitarianism emerging in the West. What will it look like? John opens the program this week looking at the characteristics of this new totalitarianism, including how it is based on an untrue ideology that everyone will be forced to accept as fact, it will dictate every aspect of our lives, and it will give lip service to a Bill of Rights that you won't have access to anymore. It is important to recognize what we're up against so we can prepare.
Now that we know what's coming, how best do we prepare? Kameel Majdali (tan.org.au), Director of the organization Teach All Nations joins us to discuss how we should stay calm amidst the chaos, whether we'll have a reset or a revival, and whether there will be a great American awakening.
There is always division and angst and a general feeling of upheaval when faced with a paradigm shift. Finally this week, we welcome back author and free speech activist Michael Rectenwald (michaelrectenwald.com) to the program. He discusses the tactics used by the far left to achieve division and alienation. If these tactics continue, the damage could be irreparable.
