Will the ideas and freedoms our Founding Fathers established in July 1776 continue to stand or will it morph into something unrecognizable? In this week’s boralogue, John looks at how the First Amendment is being used to protect speech from some people but is being pummeled in relation to others’ speech. When they agree, speech is free. When they don’t, it’s not. The freedoms in the Constitution must stand for our country to remain standing.

A debate has sprung up about court decisions and how values should be incorporated into them. But who determines society’s values? Caroline Lewis (www.carolineclewis.com), writer and owner of Percipio Communications, points out the hypocrisy of those who say laws don’t matter but then want you to live by their laws when they finally enact them.

Will Islam ever reform toward modernity? Dr. Zhudi Jasser (www.aifdemocracy.org), President and Founder of American Islamic Forum for Democracy, defines Islamic precepts and sharia law and asks: how do we push past political correctness and start truly discussing the important issues?

Can education be reformed in order to be fair to all students, regardless of race? Horace Cooper (www.nationalcenter.org), Chairman of the Project 21 National Advisory Board, advocates for a move away from government and bureaucracy and toward family, morality, and school choice. Only then can problems truly be solved.

We finish this week with author and Executive Editor at Tor/Forge Books Robert Gleason who discusses danger within some countries’ nuclear programs, including a fictional account from his new book – one that could become true if we’re not careful.

John’s quote of the week:
The problem with hate speech laws is that the determination of what is and what is not hate is a value judgment that’s very hard to quantify or qualify in law. How do you know when you’re violating this law or when you’re not?

Section 6 is taking a week off to recover from celebrating our nation’s 242nd birthday. But it will return next week for more in-depth analysis of today’s global stories.

Featured Product: DVD – Shall Not Have Died in Vain – 48 min.

Delivered as a special address on Memorial Day 2015, at Candlelight Christian Fellowship. John poses the Shall Not Have Died in Vain – 48 min.question: “Did all the brave men and women who gave their lives for the freedoms we enjoy, die in vain?” What has divided our country since before the Civil War, and widened the rift in recent decades?

How can we redeem our freedoms and ensure the God-given liberty our founders intended for generations to come? This may be one of the most important speeches of John’s career as he lays out where we’ve come from as a nation and what’s needed to regain our republic.

Pitching Deck

In the land of political correctness, up is down, down is up, and we’re all stumbling around on a pitching deck of moral non-absolutes, unsure of what to say or do. In this week’s boralogue, John explores this constantly shifting land where multiculturalism is king, collective rights trump those of the individual, and the one unpardonable sin is to reject the failed scheme of the progressive clergy. In order to get our footing, we need to ridicule this self-contradictory and bankrupt system.

With Europe hovering at the edge of this pitching deck, will the United States have the courage to honestly debate issues that are threatening us? Pete Hoekstra (www.investigativeproject.org), former Republican U.S. Congressman from Michigan, examines the need for honest discussion regardless of cries from the politically correct, and gives an overview of the nuclear relationships between North Korea, Iran, and Syria.

Throughout the Muslim world, the idea that Israel shouldn’t have the right to exist is common. But are evangelical Christians beginning to feel the same way? Tricia Miller (www.camera.org), Senior Research Analyst with CAMERA, explains that theological views and political narratives can mix, leaving evangelicals with a pro-Palestinian mindset when it comes to the state of Israel.

Plummeting oil prices dominated headlines this week. John takes a moment to examine the onset of fracking as an economic phenomenon, and how Saudi Arabia is purposefully bucking market trends. Energy, ideology, and currency all converge geopolitically to explain what’s going on.

Finally, we welcome Sue Ellen Browder, a freelance writer and author of the new book “Subverted,” who recounts her time with Cosmopolitan Magazine in the 1970s and how the sexual revolution, through abortion and the question of choice, hijacked the women’s movement.

John’s quote of the week:

“Multiculturalism must triumph and the constantly changing list of dos and don’ts must trump everything else. Indeed, key civil rights are being slaughtered in this onslaught of death by a thousand qualifications, which always require some elitist hierarchy to tell us what applies at any given moment.”

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. This week, John takes a unique look at the power groupings in the Middle East and how they are interacting with each other.
