We are taking the weekend off to recover from turkey overdose. Hope you had a good Thanksgiving.

Religious and philosophical worldviews have real impacts on the daily lives of people within a society who hold them, for good or evil. So what did C.S. Lewis think about the related subjects of science and religion? Dr. Jay Richards, Ph.D., (www.cslewisweb.com) is author of “The Magician’s Twin: C.S. Lewis on Science, Scientism, and Society.”

National heritage areas are diminishing the property rights of Americans within these zones even though the property owners don’t understand what’s happening. Tom DeWeese from the American Policy Center (www.americanpolicy.org) joins the show for an explanation.

John’s boralogue examines the history of branding using the “extreme” epithet to shut down debate, because some of our most important advances were made by people thought to be extreme in their time. John gives three rules for dealing with “herdology.”

We hear many progressives including Supreme Court justices say we should emulate the European Union when considering rights in lieu of our own constitution. Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsberg even said she wouldn’t recommend our constitution for a new country. But if one checks on Europe, we see that those rights, especially freedom of speech are rapidly dying. Karen Lugo is co-director of the Center for Constitutional Jurisprudence (www.townhall.com and www.nationalreview.com) and founder of the Libertas-West Project.

Two worldviews are slugging it out in the West; the first based in Judeo-Christianity and capitalism, the other based in secular socialism. C.S. Lewis was a staunch opponent of the type of statism today’s secularists are proposing. David Theroux, founder of the Independent Institute (www.independent.org and www.lewissociety.org), makes his debut on the program.

John’s boralogue does a brief analysis of how Europe got itself into the economic predicament in which it finds itself. We’ll be doing a more in-depth analysis next week.
