If socialism is such a wonderful concept, why does it always fail and result in tragic results? In this week’s boralogue, John looks at the evils of socialism using Nicaragua and Venezuela as case studies, contrasting the totalitarianism in those countries with the freedoms our Constitution provides here. The media will always praise socialism but we know the truth: it fails whenever it rears its Marxist head.

Social justice has morphed into a politically correct cudgel against free speech, but did it start out that way? Michael Rectenwald (www.springtimeforsnowflakes.com), Liberal Studies Professor at NYU, rejoins the program to discuss how the origins of social justice were rooted in conservatism and family, but from there morphed into its current form of political correctness and totalitarianism.

After so many years of so-called importance, why is the issue of climate change found near the bottom of many people’s concern lists now? Anthony Watts (www.wattsupwiththat.com), Founder and Editor of climate blog Watts Up With That, looks at both the history and future of climate change mania and notes the coercive tactics that alarmists have used to enforce their narrative.

The Catholic Church abuse scandal could be worse than many realize. Philip Lawler (www.catholicculture.org), Director of Catholic Culture, examines the internal politics of the Church, how the Pope factors into it, and the often overlooked need for reform.

John’s quote of the week:
“In free societies, the laws are limited and very clear. In totalitarian societies, they are many and they are vague. That way anyone can be guilty whenever they have to be. So people start self-censoring for fear of arbitrarily violating these norms, which are constantly changing.”

In this week’s Section 6, John contemplates the meaning of life, dives into an alien conspiracy theory, shows the totalitarian mindset among different groups, follows up with news on the Catholic Church, and finishes up with a Christian persecution update.

Is there any logic to the NFL national anthem protests? In this week’s boralogue, John asks the logical progression of questions to get to the bottom of the issue. Pundits are talking past each other instead of having a logical discussion to debate the issue. Plus John dissects Jake Sullivan’s comment on the location of Iran’s uranium in our clip of the week.

If we’re going to discuss how socialism has never worked, we should hear from someone who lived it for years. Yuri Maltsev (www.carthage.edu), Member of the Board of Advisors at Carthage College, details his time working with Mikhail Gorbachev – before defecting to the United States – and how socialists rule by force and by fear. Out of 36 times in history, socialism has not once succeeded.

Who determines what health care services you get and don’t get? Pat Wood (www.technocracy.news), Editor of Technocracy News, discusses the elimination of doctor-patient relationships in favor of evidence-based medicine and the collection of your personal data that is sold to the highest bidder.

Finally, John and Steel Producer Steve diagnose liberal outrage in an audio clip of a student upset at a man wearing a Make American Great Again hat. There is a divide in our country and people yelling at each other and refusing to see the other’s point of view doesn’t help.

John’s quote of the week:
Marxism had a political worldview, a religious worldview, and an economic worldview. They are not biblical worldviews. They do not come from Judeo-Christian tradition and background. Why do you think the assault on Western civilization is so virulent and angry and aggressive? That’s why.

This week on our Section 6 Intelligence Brief: Understanding truth and logic, how the Protestant reformation created the freedoms we enjoy today, Catalonian independence from Spain, an update on Christian persecution, preparing for natural disasters such as the Yellowstone super volcano and La Palma.

Trying to Eclipse the President

Right versus Left, KKK versus Antifa, hate versus hate. The events in Charlottesville last weekend were horrible, but why is there still such a problem with hate in this country? In this week’s extended boralogue, John shows that social justice warriors need chaos, regardless of the pain it causes, to achieve their transformation of society. Socialism is the goal and our freedoms are the cost.

The International Council for Local Environmental Initiatives (ICLEI) is urging cities to ignore President Trump. Pat Wood (www.technocracy.news), Editor-in-Chief of Technocracy News, examines the sustainable development agenda and ICLEI’s insistence on upholding the Paris agreement, and shows that we are moving toward a cashless society.

Economics and politics go hand in hand. Long-time friend of the show Don McAlvany (mcalvanyica.com), Founder of McAlvany Financial Group, joins us to discuss the globalist hatred toward President Trump as well as the state of the global financial markets.

Native Americans are affected by our government’s economic decisions as much as or more so than anyone else. Leslie Solliday (www.aicm.org), Executive Director of the American Indian Christian Mission, looks at the state of welfare on Native American reservations and offers solutions on how to help them become more independent from government.

John’s quote of the week:
“Don’t let the Left versus Right tension fool you. The real fight today is over freedom itself. Freedom of each individual in the country regardless of race or religion to have certain thoughts and hold intelligent conversation based on accurate facts, rather than to be forced to adhere to dictated beliefs. And if freedom of speech doesn’t survive, neither will freedom.”

This week on Section 6, John covers the media and their obsession with selective facts, a primer on effective ways to debate, the removing of statues and revising history, a Christian view of suicide, and finally, recognizing worldviews when they present themselves. Stay tuned, it’s gonna be packed!

Unbelievably Bad Idea (UBI)

A nation divided against itself cannot stand. Are we close to stumbling in America? In this week’s boralogue, John looks at how we got to such a divided state by showing the gradual takeover of the West by progressive thought. Some will not pander to the politically correct elite and are beginning to fight back. Those who have drunk the Kool-Aid are astounded not everyone thinks as they do and are fighting as well. Who will win: PC or freedom?

What is an interfaith dialogue and is it beneficial? Sam Westrop (www.standforpeace.org.uk), Director of Stand for Peace, examines recent attempts at interfaith dialogues between Christians and Muslims and how political Islamism has stepped in to represent all of Islam in order to advance PC narratives.

Ideas for wealth redistribution come in many shapes and sizes, the latest from Facebook head Mark Zuckerberg in the form of a universal basic income (UBI). Mark Hendrickson (www.visionandvalues.org), Professor of Economics at Grove City College, analyzes the pros and cons of UBI, its direct link to socialism, and the overall state of affairs in American economics.

Are we living in the End Times? Carl Gallups (www.carlgallups.com), Senior Pastor at Hickory Hammock Baptist Church in Florida, discusses prophecies that may be coming true and points out that for the first time in our history technology has progressed to the point that most of these global prophecies can now be possible.

John’s quote of the week:
“Once a nation adheres to hate speech laws, the list of what constitutes hate speech becomes longer and longer and longer and finally winds up being anybody who is opposed to government policy.”

This week during our Section 6 Intelligence Brief, John addresses the current media & Hollywood meltdown, Western Europe in identity crisis and losing its Culture, as well as collisions of worldviews.
