“The most effective way to destroy a people is to deny and obliterate their own understanding of their history.” George Orwell
America’s founding ideals and our nation’s rich Judeo-Christian heritage have been under constant attack from a so-called “progressive” Left for over a hundred years.
Yet as they’ve marched through and deconstructed America’s great cultural institutions, instead of the “progress” they claim, we’re seeing the opposite.
It’s abundantly clear now that as the progressive elites prevail, the rest of us lose.
Over the course of roughly four generations, from around 1950 to the present, American culture has been transformed from a culture that believed in the value of self-control into a culture that celebrates self-expression. And that “self-expression” has now twisted into a new form of anger – political wrath – which makes a performance art out of our darkest emotions. So argues my guest on this episode, Peter Wood, author of Wrath: America Enraged and 1620: A Critical Response to the 1619 Project and President of the National Association of Scholars.
In the past decade, America’s big businesses have increasingly moved to the political left. For evidence, take a look at their actions and stances on critical race theory indoctrination, vaccine mandates, radical climate change agendas, boardroom “diversity”, doing business and making common cause with a hostile China, etc … on issue after issue they align with the “woke” left. Now even the Federal Reserve and the Securities Exchange Commission are weighing in to support these agendas
Identity politics, and charges of systematic racism and white privilege, pose an existential threat to the American experiment and risk tearing our country apart. In this episode, I talk with Charles Murray – one of America’s greatest social scientists – who has now weighed in on this crisis with his latest book: “Facing Reality: Two Truths About Race in America”
Tal Tsfany, the President and CEO of the Ayn Rand Institute joins me to talk about a recent article by New York Times columnist Paul Krugman and how liberals are looking to rob Americans of the free will granted to them in the Constitution. We also discuss how Ayn Rand would react to all of this if she was still with us today.
As we celebrate the 157th anniversary of the Gettysburg address, I try my hand at reciting and analyzing the historic speech with Voice and Acting Coach Leigh Wilson Smiley. We also discuss how the address relates to the current state of affairs in our country.
The anti-Trump conspiracy is not about Democrats versus Republicans. It’s not about the ebb and flow of political power lawfully and peacefully transferred. It is about globalists versus nationalists, and they’re locked in the old and continuous Communist versus anti-Communist struggle, and fighting to the end whether we, the anti-Communists, recognize it or not.
Star Parker and Winsome Sears discuss race, religion, poverty, and our addiction to government.
Has Facebook corporate become a parody? They banned a Prager University video on the “Ten Commandments.” Their explanation? “Well, it mentioned murder.” Maybe next time Prager should do a video on the “Nine Commandments.”
