Postmodernism vs Freedom

Member Login to Listen/Download MP3 of Entire Broadcast

It’s important in the fight for our freedoms to understand how we arrived at where we are. In this week’s boralogue, John looks at the progression from scholasticism to the Reformation to the freedoms we have today. Freedom, responsibility, and devotion to God enabled us to gain the prosperity we have. Academia and the media are trying hard to eradicate these things and it’s up to us to understand the battle and fight for what we have.

After further dissecting how we got to this moment of postmodernism, John welcomes Ed Hindson (www.thekingiscoming.com), Dean of the Institute of Biblical Studies at Liberty University, who examines the problems with postmodern thought and the ways in which we can reach out to those who are struggling under this worldview.

John plays a Steel on Steel interview from March 2009 where he spoke with former ambassador to the UN – and our current National Security Advisor – John Bolton about American sovereignty and how the global governance crowd would like to see it vanish. This interview is just as relevant today as it was ten years ago.

Worldviews guide us in life but those rooted in the truth guide us to the right path. Writer and Pastor Wallace Henley (www.wallacehenley.net) joins us to discuss how Winston Churchill, with all of his faults and failures, was the right man at the right time in history. He also emphasizes the importance of worldviews to graduates as they transition from academia to the real world.

John’s quote of the week:
Tremendous freedom coupled with tremendous responsibility coupled with an intense devotion to God and to His Word – those three things enabled freedom in the West. If you take away any one of those three, you don’t have the prosperity that the West was able to achieve.

In this week’s Extras segment, we fire up the way back machine to December 2008, a month after Barack Obama won the presidency. John dissects postmodernism and multiculturalism, and then brings on author James Kalb to discuss how these ideals are different from traditional liberalism and how they are destroying freedom and Western culture.

Debating the Definition

John Kerry’s comments last week about a borderless world once again show us an underlying agenda to establish a one-world government. In this week’s boralogue John looks at the global governance push throughout history and shows how it explains the European migrant controversy today and the global elites’ opposition to Great Britain’s potential exit from the EU.

The concepts of gender identity and discrimination have transitioned from definitive to fluid recently with debates over who gets to marry whom and what bathroom should be used. Jenna Ellis (www.jennaellis.org), Attorney and Law Professor at Colorado Christian University rejoins us to discuss how the law is rendered meaningless through redefining terms and implores Christians and conservatives to fight to preserve truth or risk losing constitutional rights.

John takes a moment to give an update on the persecution of Christians around the world as well as comment on the failures of socialist economies.

Are Christians leaving the Holy Land and if so, what is the reason? We welcome Dr. Lawrence Franklin (www.gatestoneinstitute.org), former military attaché at the U.S. embassy in Israel, who examines Christian persecution in and expulsion from predominately Muslim countries, which reveals Islam’s plan to eradicate Christianity completely.

John’s quote of the week:
“Venezuela under Nicholas Maduro, successor of Hugo Chavez, is in a state of shipwreck. This is where all socialism winds up – when finally the vampire bleeds the victim dry, there’s nothing more you can do, and chaos usually follows.”

As always, join us online for our Section 6 intelligence briefing featuring analysis by John on important stories highlighting emerging geopolitical trends around the world.

Why the Supreme Court Loves Unconstitutional Rulings

We’re just back from driving around the western United States talking with Americans about things American.

Why does the Supreme Court seem to produce so many unconstitutional rulings lately? Dr. Tamzin Rosenwasser (www.aapsonline.org) returns to the program with answers to that question in the context of the long-term legal and financial realities surrounding Obamacare.

Then Gary Kah (www.garykah.org) returns after a long hiatus as a guest in our ongoing “End of America” series. Gary has chronicled the move towards global governance and the transformation of American culture and politics for over two decades.

John’s boralogue examines the inability of Democrats and Republicans to communicate with each other and why this means we’re still charging toward an even larger economic crisis, which attracts little attention from either side. When it happens, they’ll all be saying, “Where did that come from?” just as happened with the sub-prime mortgage crisis.
