Happy Memorial Day, everyone. Who or what are we memorializing this holiday weekend? In this week’s abbreviated boralogue, John looks at upholding the Constitution and the morals and values that helped establish this country. If we don’t, our country may just disappear.

One of the ideologies looking to supplant freedom and capitalism in America is that of Marxism. Paul Kengor (www.visionandvalues.org), Executive Director of the Center of Vision and Values at Grove City College, joins us to refute defenders of Marxism who say that it just hasn’t ever been successfully implemented, and shows how progressives have adopted Marxist thought in their attempt to gain power.

Facebook has embarked on a campaign to silence conservatives online. Jim Hoft (www.thegatewaypundit.com), author and founder of The Gateway Pundit, describes how his website has been affected and asserts that since conservatives helped elect Donald Trump, social media sites are muzzling them so that it doesn’t happen again.

John and Producer Steve give a brief update in the Russiagate saga, focusing on the impending release of a report from the Office of the Inspector General. Then John and Tom Read, (www.acn.cc), head of American Christian Network and owner of several radio stations in the Pacific Northwest wax nostalgic about days of broadcast past, discussing the history of radio news and how the Internet is affecting it today.

John’s quote of the week:
If we keep battering on our foundational documents, which will tear them apart, we may discover we’ll get everything we want, except that the whole thing will have fallen apart. We can’t allow that. Otherwise, all of those people we remember this weekend, they truly will have died in vain.

Section 6 is on a Memorial Day weekend break but will return next week with more geopolitical stories from around the world.

Socialism is gaining popularity in the United States, from Bernie Sanders hawking free everything and demanding higher taxes to university curricula disparaging capitalism. In this week’s boralogue, John looks deeper at socialism and asks: why, after failing every time it has been implemented, would anyone ever consider it a viable option? Socialist regimes bemoan capitalism at every turn but ultimately seek it out when all the money runs dry. America needs to stand up now and shout down this failed system!

Chinese communist leaders are continuing a campaign of religious persecution across their country. Bob Fu (www.chinaaid.org), Founder and President of China Aid Association, examines the government’s motivations and shows that even legally sanctioned Christian churches are experiencing forced confessions, jail time, and even death.

Non-Muslims in Pakistan are persecuted as well through their dangerous blasphemy laws. Author and blogger Shamila Ghyas (www.twitter.com/ShamilaGhyas) gives examples of the laws’ power and goes on to explain that most Muslims are non-violent and need stand up to the extremists.

A 7.8 magnitude earthquake hit Ecuador on April 16th, killing hundreds and injuring thousands. Wayne Stauble, a real estate developer in the country, describes the devastating aftermath of the quake and the need for preparedness in a time of crisis. Our prayers go out to those in Ecuador.

Finally, what exactly happened to Malaysian Airlines flight 370 in March 2014? H. Richard Austin (www.thecomingofarmageddon.com), financial analyst and author of The Coming of Armageddon, analyzes factual evidence of what happened to the flight and proposes that the plane was hijacked for future use in a terrorist event.

John’s quote of the week:
“The problem with socialism is that sooner or later you run out of somebody else’s money. Socialism has never survived by itself and has always had to turn to capitalism to bail itself out.”

Forgettism

Loss of identity and purpose can be alarming. John shows us just how alarming in this week’s boralogue as he connects the tragic bombings in Belgium, President Obama’s trip to Cuba, and the competing worldviews in the 2016 U.S. election cycle. There is a purposeful forgetting about where we came from and who we are, and it is causing more forceful worldviews to surface. We must remember.

The primary worldview surfacing to replace freedom and liberty is Marxism. Philip Carl Salzman (www.mcgill.ca), Anthropology Professor at McGill University in Quebec, discusses the century-long infiltration of Marxism in academia and correctly defines two problematic outcomes of it: multiculturalism and social justice.

In an extended boralogue, John exposes the truth behind everyone’s T-shirt hero, Che Guevara and Cuba’s communist history, and shows how socialism needs capitalism to rescue it from its own failures.

Finally, we welcome Michael Curtis (www.polisci.rutgers.edu), Professor Emeritus at Rutgers University, who examines the geopolitics of Russia, the Middle East peace process, and the need for America’s foreign policy to improve.

John’s quote of the week:
“The problem we are having in the West is we are listening to several different narratives of who we are, where we come from, and those values upon which we stand. One of those narratives is a solid one: the original one that stood, created Western civilization, and has lasted for 1500 years, and it still works for anyone who tries it.”

We wish everyone a safe and happy Easter.

We are taking a break from Section 6 this holiday weekend, but it will return next week with analysis by John on important stories highlighting emerging geopolitical trends around the world.

With silly season in full swing, it is important to examine our past and determine if our country is walking down a familiar path today. In this week’s boralogue, John looks back to the stock market crash in 1929 and our government’s unhelpful reaction to it. What lessons can we learn from this? More importantly, with politicians offering free goodies and decrying capitalism, are we ready to listen?

We’re taking a whirlwind tour of the globe this week beginning in Sweden, where we invite Nima Gholam Ali Pour (www.situationmalmo.nu), Vice Chairman of Perspectives on Israel, to analyze the Palestinian-friendly Kairos document and how it and the Swedish media are fomenting a growing anti-Israel movement in that country.

Next we travel to the Orient with columnist and East Asia expert Gordon Chang (www.gordonchang.com) who discusses not only China’s crumbling economy and military expansion but also the dangers of North Korean missile testing. Could the United States be vulnerable?

John takes some time to discuss U.S. interest rates and the markets, Russia’s involvement with Ukraine and Syria, and the persecution of Christians by ISIS-controlled countries in the Middle East.

We end our global tour back in Europe where David Goldman (www.reorientgroup.com), Managing Director at Reorient Group, studies Germany’s identity crisis in the wake of refugee violence and shows that their reaction to the emergency is related to their past. Could an identity crisis also be at the heart of Islam in the modern world, influencing violent incidents?

John’s quote of the week:
“Knowing who you are is important to functioning in the world especially in terms of a worldview. When you forget who you are – as a country, as a person, as an organization – then you typically get into trouble when you encounter other groups that don’t have that problem.”
