In this episode we interview Andrew J. Douglas and Jared A. Loggins to discuss their recently published book, Prophet of Discontent: Martin Luther King Jr. and the Critique of Racial Capitalism.  Andrew Douglas is a professor of political science and a faculty affiliate in Africana studies and international comparative labor studies at Morehouse College. Douglas is also the author of In the Spirit of Critique: Thinking Politically in the Dialectical Tradition and W.E.B. Du Bois and the Critique of Competitive Society.  Jared Loggins is a visiting assistant professor of Black Studies and political science at Amherst College We talk to Jared and Andrew about the mutually informing theoretical legacies of Martin Luther King Jr and Cedric Robinson. Loggins and Douglas share their insights on Robinson's theoretical work around racial capitalism, the Black Radical Tradition, and leadership and examine some of King's most potent radical critiques in dialogue with these concepts. We also ask about King's legacy as a dialectical thinker, and the authors share their insights on King's critiques around the materialistic nature of the capitalist system in dialogue with Marx's critique of commodity fetishism.  Douglas and Loggins also engage King's thinking around guaranteed basic income, the welfare state, and building and learning through communal struggle. They also explore King's thought around riots, the organized abandonment coinciding with deindustrialization, and the ways his thinking anticipates the neoliberal turn that comes after his assassination. Finally they share thoughts on King's anti-imperialism and their own thinking around rebuilding a Black radical counter public, and building the types of formations and institutions that can resist the patterns of capture and cooptation that continue to plague Black movements and Black thought in the 21st Century. You can read a free online copy of their book Prophet of Discontent: Martin Luther King Jr. and the Critique of Racial Capitalism or purchase a paperback copy. We'll include links to it in the show notes.  And it's a new year and we really need folks' continued support to sustain this podcast.

For Berlinski, a mathematician and author of The Deniable Darwin, the problem is quantitative and methodological. For Denton, a geneticist and author of the new Discovery Institute Press book Children of Light: The Astonishing Properties of Light that Make Us Possible, the problem is empirical.

Lying.Joshua 7:2-5 (NLT)2Joshua sent some of his men from Jericho to spy out the city of Ai, east of Bethel, near Beth-aven. 3When they returned, they told Joshua, "It's a small town, and it won't take more than two or three thousand of us to destroy it. There's no need for all of us to go there." 4So approximately three thousand warriors were sent, but they were soundly defeated. The men of Ai 5chased the Israelites from the city gate as far as the quarries, and they killed about thirty-six who were retreating down the slope. The Israelites were paralyzed with fear at this turn of events, and their courage melted away.Joshua 7:10-13 (NLT)10But the Lord said to Joshua, "Get up! Why are you lying on your face like this? 11Israel has sinned and broken my covenant! They have stolen the things that I commanded to be set apart for me. And they have not only stolen them; they have also lied about it and hidden the things among their belongings. 12That is why the Israelites are running from their enemies in defeat.  For now Israel has been set apart for destruction. I will not remain with you any longer unless you destroy the things among you that were set apart for destruction.  13"Get up! Command the people to purify themselves in preparation for tomorrow. For this is what the Lord, the God of Israel, says: Hidden among you, O Israel, are things set apart for the Lord. You will never defeat your enemies until you remove these things.Joshua 7:18-21 (NLT)18Every member of Zimri's family was brought forward person by person, and Achan was singled out. 19Then Joshua said to Achan, "My son, give glory to the Lord, the God of Israel, by telling the truth. Make your confession and tell me what you have done. Don't hide it from me." 20Achan replied, "I have sinned against the Lord, the God of Israel. 21For I saw a beautiful robe imported from Babylon, two hundred silver coins, and a bar of gold weighing more than a pound. I wanted them so much that I took them. They are hidden in the ground beneath my tent, with the silver buried deeper than the rest."  What is sin?Man call is an accident, God calls it abomination.Man calls it a defect, God calls it a disease.Man calls it an error, God calls it an enmity.Man calls it a liberty, God calls it lawlessness. Man calls it a trifle, God calls it a tragedy.Man calls it a mistake, God calls it a madness.Man calls it a weakness, God calls it willfulnessRomans 10:13 (NIV) For, "Everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved."

In a world filled with spiritual and physical needs—lack of gospel access, extreme poverty, exploitation, etc.—how should the church respond? And what does our use of money say about us? In this message from 1 Timothy 6:17–19, David Platt warns of the danger of the love of money as well as the eternal reward for those who use their resources for God's glory and the good of others. Riches are not inherently sinful, and God gives us good things to enjoy, but we must be on guard to make sure that our hearts treasure God more than the things of this world.

After exploring the relationship between the transcendental (lokuttara) and historical time, Saccanama looks at the challenges facing us at this particular point in history. Individualism and materialism present challenges both to our society and to our practice of the Dharma. Put them together and we have a form of capitalism which is so dominant that it becomes impossible to imagine any other system. Set against this, the Dharma is always challenging.

Today we finish our look at strategies for dealing with the materialism that becomes painfully obvious in our lives during this time of year. One of the most effective strategies I've experienced is to take a missions trip with your teen. One of my most memorable mission trips with one of my own kids took place when I traveled to the inner-city of Chattanooga with my then sixteen year old son Nate. The trip was sponsored by our church, and I volunteered to go along as an adult leader. God did amazing things that exceeded my expectations. I had time to talk with Nate and his peers for several hours on our drive to and from Chattanooga. While we were there, I worked alongside my son and his friends as a member of the team. Together we learned about poverty, community development, and God's heart for the poor. When we returned from our trip we not only had a great memory, but an experience that changed our lives, cemented our relationship, and challenged our own priorities.

Today we continue our look at addressing the materialism that so easily rears its ugly head in our lives during the Christmas season.  I've worked with parents for years and I'm the parent of four children myself. I know full well that in today's world our tendency is to idolize our kids. We want them to have, do, and be more than anyone else. But we do them harm when we create a culture of childhood royalty by treating them like princes and princesses. What we're doing is instilling a lifelong sense of entitlement that's very hard to break. One strategy I have found personally helpful is to seek to uncover ways that I might be raising my kids to be selfish and self-centered. I want them to see beyond themselves to the world's great need. As Christmas approaches, remind yourself of the fact that Jesus came into the world to rescue us from our selfish idolatry. When we worship Him, we will follow his will and way in grateful obedience for what He has done for us.

All this week we're looking at strategies for addressing our bent towards materialism. . . a bent that rears it's ugly head quite frequently during the Christmas season. Today, I want to encourage you to let your kids know that they are rich.  I grew up thinking I was poor. There are numerous reasons for that, the most basic being that I saw myself as having less than those who had more, rather than one who had more than those who had less.  We all do that don't we? Then I learned my position in line if the world's population was lined up from richest to poorest. I, along with you, would be standing in the front two percent of the line. We've been fooled and we've been fooling ourselves if we think we are poor. The bottom line is that we are rich. Once you communicate that fact to your kids, spend some time looking at what the old and new testaments have to say about the dangers of wealth, and the God-given responsibilities of those who have been given much.

This week we're looking at ways to challenge the materialism that marks our lifestyles as we prepare for Christmas. Let me encourage you to tell your kids about Bob Pierce, the founder of World Vision, who started his organization after praying, “Let my heart be broken by the things that break the heart of God.” The scriptures reveal what lies at the heart of God. Six little words from Isaiah 61:8 capture the essence of it all: “For I, the Lord, love justice.” God's great unfolding drama of redemption is all about the righting the wrongs that sin unleashed on the world. Things are not the way they are supposed to be. As God reveals Himself in the Bible, we can't help but see His heart for the poor and desire for justice. Why not take some time to immerse your family in God's Word as you prepare for Christmas. It will transform you into people who seek first the Kingdom. Teach your kids that God calls them to meet the world's deep need by being his hands and feet wherever poverty and justice run amok.

As we approach the gift-giving frenzy that can be the holiday season, we revisit the topic of Sustainable Minimalism with an episode from earlier this year, when we featured Stephanie Seferian, a bestselling author, podcaster and blogger who is best known for her book and podcast, Sustainable Minimalism. We think her book would make a great holiday gift for anyone who could use a little help decluttering their life, giving their lives that Marie Kondo treatment BUT with an eco-minded twist. And secondly -- we love her approach to holiday shopping, and EVERYONE can benefit from hearing her perspective. She focuses on experience over materialism in a way that is both healthy and inspirational. We've given the episode a refresh, removing the longer intro so we get right into the episode. About Our Guest, Stephanie Seferian: Stephanie is the best-selling author of Sustainable Minimalism and host of the top-rated podcast by the same name. After blogging about her personal journey toward a simpler, more eco-friendly lifestyle, she was inspired to help others create intentional lives centered around both simplicity and sustainability. She uses her platform to demystify the tenets of eco-minimalism with kids including eco-friendly decluttering, conscious consumerism, and low-waste living. Stephanie is an avid runner, an aspiring plant-based chef, and a lover of historical fiction.

Since the Christmas season is a chance for our materialistic bent to shine, this week I'm suggesting strategies for leading your kids out of these dangerous and disobedient attitudes. Out of sight, out of mind might be the cliché that best describes my own personal history of ignorance to anyone's material needs but my own. During my childhood, poverty was something that flashed outside my car window as my family ventured from our comfortable and cloistered enclave in the suburbs on trips through inner-city Philadelphia. The slums were never our destination. They were simply a dangerous place to pass through quickly on a direct route somewhere else. The only emotion I ever felt was the relief that came with getting out of there. Helping the kids you know and love break free from such ignorance and cultural captivity can begin as you take deliberate steps to open their eyes to the world's need through books, the internet, and personal visits.

Youth Culture Today with Walt Mueller

One youth culture trend that reveals just how much the adolescent pressures of past generations have filtered down to the youngest of children, is the obsession our children have over clothing and appearance. Fueled by effective marketing, clothing brands have become idols for our kids. With Christmas shopping season in high gear, many of you have experienced this to be true, as even our youngest kids are asking for certain must-have brands of clothing. This year as in the past ten years, Nike is the number one favorite clothing brand among our kids. We can even purchase a pair of sixty dollar Air Jordan sneakers for toddlers, a reality which might say more about the brand image pressure parents feel long before their kids are even thinking about those kinds of things. Perhaps we still believe that he who dies with the most toys wins. Let's not forget these words of Jesus, “What good is it for a man to gain the whole world, yet forfeit his soul?”

The desire to want more and to seek after satisfaction in the things of the world has always been a temptation for God's people. How much more so when our culture teaches us to live as consumers and to expect that we deserve to have our desires fulfilled? Sadly, as followers of Christ, we can easily buy into these lies. In this message from 1 Timothy 6:3–10, David Platt encourages us to consider money and possessions in light of the gospel and in light of the urgent needs of the world. Rather than being deceived by worldly riches, we should find our treasure in God himself.

It is no longer enough for governments to measure GDP, they should finally use knowledge of sociology and psychology to figure out how to measure the quality of life. And part of these metrics should be about the value of experiencing rather than possessing things. Together with James Wallman, the author of “Stuffocation” and “Time and how to spend it”, and a co-founder of the World Experience Organization, we dig into the topic of how to measure experiences, and how to use these metrics to provoke organizations around the world to be more experiential. We wonder if it's possible to create an equivalent of a B-Corp certification and certification for experience and how it should differ with respect to the final solutions and culture. We also wonder how to capture the subjective assessment of experiences and turn it into a reliable guideline. And we dive into the meaning of boredom, the rabbit hole of creative work, and the idea of trying out our different selves.LINKSWXO websiteB-Corp websiteSelf-determination theory“Stuffocation” by James Wallman“Time and how to spend it” by James Wallman“Rest” by Alex Soojung-Kim Pang“Shorter” by Alex Soojung-Kim Pang“On Writing” by Stephen King“Time traveler's guide to medieval England” by Ian Mortimer“The wire” by David Simon and Rafael Alvarez“Homicide: A Year On The Killing Streets” by David Simon“The science of storytelling” by Will Storr“What a dog saw” by Malcolm Gladwell
