State of the Media Assessment

“The right doesn’t have a robust answer to the lies behind the utopian revolutionary moment that we’re entering.” Joining David Gornoski for this episode is Michael Rectenwald, author of Beyond Woke, to discuss this phase of near-totalitarianism rising in our country. How can the media collude with a character like Joe Biden and portray him to the public as a Mr. Rogers? Is Critical Race Theory a tool for producing warmongers? Also in the show, professor Wilfred Reilly, author of Taboo, calls in for a state of the media assessment; here he analyzes the Big Tech censoring of the Hunter Biden story and the change in language that favors the radical left’s worldview.

THINGS HIDDEN 17: The Glorious Yeast Infection of Christianity

In this podcast of Things Hidden, David Gornoski sits down with Curtis Yarvin (also known as Mencius Moldbug), developer of Gray Mirror. Together, the two explore the founding of the United States, globalism, colonialism, America’s foreign policy, the rise of China, and more.

Curtis describes Gray Mirror as a portal to the next regime. Why do we need such a portal? David asks. Curtis answers this question by explaining the regressing trajectory from the founding of the United States onwards. Is globalist thinking born out of Christianity? What would the pioneers of the globalist experiment think when they see the crumbling of their project in today’s world?

Jesus, just before his crucifixion, said that “the stones themselves would cry out.” David Gornoski explains that this statement is a reference to the hidden victims of ritual sacrifice throughout history and what Jesus’ revelation would initiate in the form of our culture’s growing concerns for victims. The conversation then moves to the internal revolutions and conflicts that have become a recurrent feature in our society. Is this what Jesus meant when He said that He came to bring a sword?

What can we say about Christianity’s impact on humanity when we see the modern-day cultures of countries like Japan and China? Should our solution to the modern culture crisis retain a fraction of paganism?

THINGS HIDDEN 16: Giants of the Law

Shannon Braswell and David Gornoski are back with another exciting conversation on envy, greek philosophy, the Old Testament narratives, and the West’s cross-haunted culture.

Why are successful, creative people derided in society? Shannon and David explore this question by looking at the trajectory of the Old Testament stories from scapegoating to self-reflection; they are then led to the ancient Greek philosophers, the Jewish interaction with ancient pagans, and whether we can look to the Old Testament the same way as we look at the New Testament.

How important are the Mosaic laws when it comes to the development of western civilization? How has our cross-haunted thinking affected our foreign policy and our justice system? Listen to the full podcast for a bold discussion on how to reject the timidness of coercive institutions and get our courage and creativity back as a culture.

Ron Paul on Policing, Justice, and Stagnation in America

Dr. Ron Paul, former presidential candidate and champion of liberty, joins David Gornoski to talk about some of the pressing issues our country is facing right now.

On the calls to defund the police, Dr. Paul cautions against involving the federal government while pointing out that the problem of arbitrary violence exists because of government involvement. Dr. Paul urges us to shift our focus on the violent institutions whose very existence perpetuates the problems we’re seeing today.

What is the future of politics on educational campuses? Dr. Paul says the situation is ripe for self-proclaimed progressives to take the initiative in demanding change while correcting the socialist movement that crony-corporatism and government bailouts, not free-market economics, are the real problem. The purpose of government is to protect property, Dr. Paul says, but right now the government stands for bankruptcy and the opposite of liberty.

What does Dr. Paul think of Kanye West running for president? How can we move from economic enslavement to prosperity and liberty? Can we rediscover true justice in a myriad of fake justice issues thrown at us by the media? Listen to the full podcast to find out.
