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.
How did we ever get to a point where we have such rampant cancel culture in Western civilization? On today's podcast, John looks at the change in education over the past three decades from thinking based on logic and fact to thinking based on consensus group think. As a result, some people have built safe spaces to retreat to when they are faced with facts antithetical to their worldview. They tried to shame us by calling us all kinds of names but that isn't working anymore so they have moved on the next step – cancel culture. John gives advice and warnings when dealing with people who have constructed these safe spaces.
