Peter Thiel, arguably the most successful tech investor of modern times, also reads widely and thinks deeply about philosophy and theology. In a fascinating follow-up to his previous interview about his mentor, Rene Girard, Thiel discusses how modern ideologies such as fascism and communism "up the dose" from murder to genocide as Christianity weakened the power of human sacrifice.  He also discusses how progressive ideologies are "stronger moves" than fascistic or reactionary ones because they weaponize Christianity's concern for victims. Thiel talks about how the state, with its origins in paganism, restrains violence by using violence and how Christians might navigate that dilemma by engaging politically but not becoming excessively entangled by it.  Finally, Thiel points out how those who promise to protect us from Apocalypse can actually accelerate its coming.  Timestamps: 01:08    Girard, Scapegoating04:00    Mimetic copies: Hitler and Stalin, Nazism and Communism, Fascism05:30    Wokeism, Christianity, and Academia10:40    Wokeism in cities, response to real estate costs.

Yesterday, President Biden gave a speech which was a call to reject the poison of white supremacy, of neo-Nazism. He spoke in Philadelphia, in front of Independence Hall. While calling out MAGA as the white supremacy it has always been, he refused to see what is obvious to communities of color, religious minorities, women, and LGBTQ persons, namely that the GOP of Trump has tolerated a steady march to Nazism. Period. Personally, I don't believe anyone should be granted a moral or ethical 'pass'  for remaining silent in the face of injustice and bigotry.  While I am glad that Presdient BIden gave this speech; it didn't go far enough. So, I'm going to speak to this psychological lapse on the part of the president.  Come join me. Jeanine

Confused ideas and muddy ponds appear deep.  -Nicolás Gómez Dávila People, ESPECIALLY liberals, dramatically overestimate the number of unarmed black men killed by police.  Like, by orders of magnitude. A high school shop teacher in Canada has she/her prosthetic nips protruding.  It's the most asenine thing I've ever seen, only made more ridiculous by the fact that she/her leftwing school is backing she/her. When I was a kid, the left said, "What happens between two consenting adults in the privacy of their own bedroom is none of my business."  Which is pretty much how I feel.  But they moved on.  Now captive minors have to witness your crazy kinks. People online are desperate to rescue "leftism" from the tarnish other leftists are always throwing on it.  But why?  It started horrific, it's been horrific since, and it will end horrific. Why did so many liberals tell us that the communism of the Soviet Union is not ‘real communism' when the very suggestion that there might be a real fascism, or real Nazism, free from the moral taint of the historian variety, would be dismissed as despicable whitewash?  -Roger Scruton, 1991

A critical history of the roots of Nazi occultism and its continuing influence• Explores the occult influences on various Nazi figures, including Adolf Hitler, Albert Speer, Rudolf Hess, Alfred Rosenberg, and Heinrich Himmler• Examines the foundations of the movement laid in the 19th century and continuing in the early 20th century• Explains the rites and runology of National Socialism, the occult dimensions of Nazi science, and how many of the sensationalist descriptions of Nazi “Satanic” practices were initiated by Church propaganda after the warIn this comprehensive examination of Nazi occultism, Stephen E. Flowers, Ph.D., offers a critical history and analysis of the occult and esoteric streams of thought active in the Third Reich and the growth of occult Nazism at work in movements today.Sharing the culmination of five decades of research into primary and secondary sources, many in the original German, Flowers looks at the symbolic, occult, scientific, and magical traditions that became the foundations from which the Nazi movement would grow. He details the influences of Theosophy, Volkism, and the work of the Brothers Grimm as well as the impact of scientific culture of the time. Looking at the early 20th century, he describes the impact of Guido von List, Lanz von Liebenfels, Rudolf von Sebottendorf, Friedrich Hielscher, and others.Examining the period after the Nazi Party was established in 1919, and more especially after it took power in 1933, Flowers explores the occult influences on key Nazi figures, including Adolf Hitler, Albert Speer, Rudolf Hess, and Heinrich Himmler. He analyzes Hitler's usually missed references to magical techniques in Mein Kampf, revealing his adoption of occult methods for creating a large body of supporters and shaping the thoughts of the masses. Flowers also explains the rites and runology of National Socialism, the occult dimensions of Nazi science, and the blossoming of Nazi Christianity. Concluding with a look at the modern mythology of Nazi occultism, Flowers critiques postwar Nazi-related literature and unveils the presence of esoteric Nazi myths in modern occult and political circles.Stephen Edred Flowers, Ph.D., received his doctorate in Germanic languages and medieval studies from the University of Texas at Austin and studied the history of occultism and runology at the University of Göttingen, Germany. The author of more than 50 books, including Revival of the Runes, he lives near Smithville, Texas.

President Biden told supporters at a reception for the Democratic National Committee that Donald Trump and his loyalists within the GOP -- "MAGA Republicans" -- subscribe to an extreme philosophy that Mr. Biden described as "semi-fascism." If you spend any amount of time on social media, you'll see fascism everywhere. Pundits, political scientists, historians, anyone with a Twitter account -- are offering their takes on whether Republicans are steering the United States toward fascism. In this episode, the scholars Jeffrey Bale and Tamir Bar-On argue Trump's critics are dangerously distorting history. Fascism is a distinct ideology from other forms of populism or illiberalism or ultra-nationalism, whatever one thinks of Trumpism. Moreover, they contend the threat to democracy posed by right-wing fringe groups has been egregiously exaggerated for cynical political purposes.

He has spent the past 25 years speaking to audiences in all 50 states, on over 1000 college and high school campuses, at hundreds of professional and academic conferences, and to community groups across the nation. He has also lectured internationally in Canada and Bermuda, and has trained corporate, government, law enforcement and medical industry professionals on methods for dismantling racism in their institutions. Wise's antiracism work traces back to his days as a college activist in the 1980s, fighting for divestment from (and economic sanctions against) apartheid South Africa. After graduation, he threw himself into social justice efforts full-time, as a Youth Coordinator and Associate Director of the Louisiana Coalition Against Racism and Nazism: the largest of the many groups organized in the early 1990s to defeat the political candidacies of white supremacist and former Ku Klux Klan leader David Duke. From there, he became a community organizer in New Orleans' public housing, and a policy analyst for a children's advocacy group focused on combatting poverty and economic inequity. He has served as an adjunct professor at the Smith College School of Social Work, in Northampton, MA., and from 1999-2003 was an advisor to the Fisk University Race Relations Institute in Nashville, TN. Wise is the author of seven books, including his highly-acclaimed memoir, White Like Me: Reflections on Race from a Privileged Son, as well as Dear White America: Letter to a New Minority, and Under the Affluence: Shaming the Poor, Praising the Rich and Sacrificing the Future of America.

He also appeared alongside legendary scholar and activist, Angela Davis, in the 2011 documentary, “Vocabulary of Change.” In this public dialogue between the two activists, Davis and Wise discussed the connections between issues of race, class, gender, sexuality and militarism, as well as inter-generational movement building and the prospects for social change. Wise is also one of five persons—including President Barack Obama—interviewed for a video exhibition on race relations in America, featured at the National Museum of African American History and Culture in Washington DC. Additionally, his media presence includes dozens of appearances on CNN, MSNBC and NPR, feature interviews on ABC's 20/20 and CBS's 48 Hours, as well as videos posted on YouTube, Facebook and other social media platforms that have received over 20 million views. His podcast, “Speak Out with Tim Wise,” launched this fall and features weekly interviews with activists, scholars and artists about movement building and strategies for social change.

Munich became a hotbed of right-wing extremism, with synagogues under attack and Jews physically assaulted in the streets. It was here that Adolf Hitler established the Nazi movement and developed his antisemitic ideas. Michael Brenner provides a gripping account of how Bavaria's capital city became the testing ground for Nazism and the Final Solution. Dr. Michael Brenner will describe in detail an electrifying narrative that takes readers from Hitler's return to Munich following the armistice to his calamitous Beer Hall Putsch in 1923. Dr. Brenner demonstrates why the city's transformation is crucial for understanding the Nazi era and the tragedy of the Holocaust. Dr. Brenner tells us how Hitler and his followers terrorized Munich's Jews and were aided by politicians, judges, police, and ordinary residents. Dr. Brenner shows how the city's Jews responded to the antisemitic backlash in many different ways--by declaring their loyalty to the state, by avoiding public life, or by abandoning the city altogether for a different perspective. That, of course, is our guest today, Dr. Michael Brenner reading from his new book, In Hitler's Munich.  Please join me in welcoming to the Smithsonian Associates Author Interview series Smithsonian Associate Dr. Michael Brenner. Thanks to Dr. Michael Brenner for joining me today and for his reading from his new book, In Hitler's Munich  Dr. Brenner's excellent preparation…really makes my job easy.  Making my job easy, and thanks, as well, to our wonderful Smithsonian team for all they do to support the show.  Thanks to you, our equally wonderful audience…please be safe, and I emphasize this because we need to all be safe by eliminating assault rifles.  Assault rifles should only be in military hands…they are killing our children and grandchildren in the very place they learn: School.  Please, let's do better by eliminating assault rifles…let's talk about better…The Not Old Better Show.  Thanks, everybody, and I'll see you next week.  Music today is from Smithsonian Folkways, Germany: Die Bluemelein sie schlafen / Ober de stelen straten / Schlaf in suesser Ruh (medley) For more details, please click HERE at Smithsonian Associates: https://smithsonianassociates.org/ticketing/tickets/insurrection-in-beer-hall

As Adolph Hitler rose to power in 1930s Germany, a growing wave of fascism began to take root on American soil. Nazi activists started to gather in major American cities, and by 1933, there were more than one-hundred anti-Semitic groups operating openly in the United States. Few Americans dared to speak out or fight back—until an organized resistance of notorious mobsters waged their own personal war against the Nazis in their midst. Gangland-style. . . .In this thrilling blow-by-blow account, acclaimed crime writer Michael Benson uncovers the shocking truth about the insidious rise of Nazism in America—and the Jewish mobsters who stomped it out.

It's Wednesday, August 10th, A.D. 2022. This is The Worldview in 5 Minutes heard at www.TheWorldview.com. I'm Adam McManus. (Adam@TheWorldview.com) By Jonathan Clark Nigerian Muslims kill 7 Christian farmers, injure 2 On August 1st, between 7:00 pm and 7:30 pm, radical Muslim terrorists in Nigeria's Plateau State killed seven Christian farmers and injured two others in communities where there is no access to good roads and other social amenities, reports International Christian Concern. Armed with AK-47s and machetes, the Fulani Muslim militias attacked them in the Danda Chugwi village. In a separate incident, Muslims killed two Christian farmers in the Lamigo village. One survivor said. “I escaped by God's mercy. The Fulani were four in number with guns and machetes. They destroyed our crops and grazed their cattle on our farms.” The country's president, Mahamadu Buhari, has failed to protect Christian farmers. Rather, he keeps silent when Christian farmers are attacked. Hungarian leader: Liberals want to eradicate Christian values Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orbán  addressed the Conservative Political Action Conference in Dallas, Texas last Thursday. Orbán said Americans and Hungarians face the same threat: progressive liberals who want to eradicate Christian values. ORBÁN: “The horrors of Nazism and communism happened because some Western states in continental Europe abandoned their Christian values. And today's progressives are planning to do the same. They want to give up on Western values and create a new world. A post-Western world.” Orbán also said conservatives must build Christian culture and that politics is not enough. “Politics, my friends, are not enough. This war is a culture war. We have to revitalize our churches, our families, our universities, and our community institutions.” Isaiah 58:12 says, “Those from among you shall build the old waste places; you shall raise up the foundations of many generations; and you shall be called the Repairer of the Breach, the Restorer of Streets to Dwell In.” Biden's $280 billion tech bill On Tuesday, President Joe Biden signed a $280 billion tech bill. The bill includes over $50 billion for U.S. companies in an attempt to boost computer chip manufacturing. Today, the U.S. produces about 10% of the world's chip supply, down from 37% in 1990. Most semiconductors now come from East Asia. The Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company alone controls over half of the global chip market.  Florida to ban doctors from transgender drugs, surgeries for kids Last Friday, Florida's Board of Medicine voted to start a process that could ban doctors from offering puberty blockers and mutilating surgeries to children pretending to be the opposite sex. Florida Surgeon General Joseph Ladapo supports the new rule as well. During a press conference last week, Florida Republican Governor Ron DeSantis said doctors who provide so-called “gender-affirming care” should be sued. DESANTIS: “They talk about these very young kids getting ‘gender-affirming' care, but they don't tell you what that is. They're actually giving very young girls double mastectomies. They want to castrate these young boys. That's wrong! “So, we've stood up and said, both from the health and children wellbeing perspective, you don't disfigure 10,12, 13-year-old kids, based on gender dysphoria. 80% of it resolves anyways by the time they get older. So why would you be doing this? I think these doctors need to get sued for what's happening. I'm sorry.” (applause) The good and bad sides of the Indiana anti-abortion bill Indiana is the first state in the U.S. to pass abortion restrictions after the Supreme Court overturned Roe v. Wade on June 24th. Indiana Republican Gov. Eric Holcomb signed a near-total abortion ban last Friday. Unfortunately, the law does allow for exceptions in cases like rape and incest. In addition to the rape and incest exceptions, Hoosiers4Life lists eight objections to this new law including loopholes which allow abortions for any reason, taxpayers will now pay for abortions, and the law defines pregnancy beginning at implantation, not at conception. Citing Isaiah 10:1-2, Indiana Republican State Rep. John Jacob, who has urged women in person to choose life outside abortion mills, explained why he voted against this bill. JACOB: “I'm voting no on this bill, but not for the same reason that my Democratic colleagues are probably going to vote no on this bill. “I'm voting no on it, because it is a weak, pathetic bill that still allows babies to be murdered. God says, ‘Woe to those who enact unjust statutes and to those who constantly record harmful decisions so as to deprive the needy of justice, and rob the poor among my people of their rights.' “And if we're unclear, we enact statutes in here.

However, Hal Shurtleff, the founder of Camp Constitution, refused to lie and call the flag anything other than what it was—a Christian flag. During the flag raising, Shurtleff said, “God's hand was in this from the beginning. To God be the glory.” Proverbs 3:5-6 says, “Trust in the LORD with all your heart, and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge Him, and He shall direct your paths.” Close And that's The Worldview in 5 Minutes on this Wednesday, August 10th, in the year of our Lord 2022. Subscribe by iTunes or email to our unique Christian newscast at www.TheWorldview.com.

Just this past week, former presidential candidate Andrew Yang (along with a bevy of corporate dems and republicans), announced the formation of a THIRD political party, aka the Forward Together Party. In a vapid op-ed, published in the Washington Post, they posted the political version of 'somewhere over the rainbow,' as neo-Nazis scream louder through the media. Yang and his bunch, (which includes GOP pol Christine Todd Whitman), push a series of dangerous and libelous false equivalencies between the progressive Left, and the Trumpist GOP filled to the brim with white supremacists, Christian Nationalists pushing a dangerous theocratic model, and open Neo-Nazis.  Somehow, Yang's call to sing "kumbaya" falls flat. It takes a special kind of tone deafness to the suffering of minorities to push what can only be considered a unilateral surrender to Trumpist Nazis--for the benefit of white corporatists who are becoming nervous. I will discuss Yang's silly plan, (which is far too similar to the cowards Vichy), and the political reality of advancing Nazism.  As always, we will celebrate the Jackass of the Week.

An epic astrological event occurs in late July - early August 2022, when the outer planet Uranus, conjoins with the North Node (Rahu) and Mars in the sign Taurus in tropical Astrology.  The days that will be particularly intense are July 26-August 8, 2022. This alignment brings major shifts in consciousness.  There will be shakes and quakes in our society and globally. There are many possible outcome that will have shocking events and repercussions.Cryptocurrency will have a brief comeback as the Uranus, North Node and Mars conjunction in Taurus activates the natal Uranus in a positive aspect to Bitcoin's astrological chart in Bitcoin's natal 8th house of money for unexpected resources.Mars and Rahu (the North Node) are both considered malefic in Vedic Astrology, while Uranus is a western astrological planet symbolizing change and the unexpected.  We may see something explosive occur, or get news that will shock and surprise everyone when Mars (aggression-force) combines with Uranus (shocks or the unexpected) and the North Node, called Rahu in Vedic astrology (known for uncontrolled passions and material pursuits).Power shifts could change the course of history and our planetary trajectory.  We need to be aware of manipulated events which will create control agendas. The epic astrological alignment occurs in the sign Taurus in tropical astrology. Taurus is an earth sign and a money sign.  Some areas that might be implicated are finances, global economy, environment, agriculture, extreme weather conditions, and other earth upheavals such as earthquakes, tsunamis, tornadoes and hurricanes and high winds. Uranus has been in Taurus since 2018 and stays until 2025.  When Uranus transits Taurus, it affects financial markets, interactions with the natural world, and attitudes toward security.  The previous time Uranus transited Taurus was from 1934-1942.  Historically, that was a very challenging time with major shifts and shocking events such as the collapse of the German economy which gave rise to Nazism in Germany and WWII. Uranus is the great awakener, rebel and revolutionary, bringing the energy of change, sometimes through destabilization, upheaval, chaos and breakdowns.  When Uranus aligns with North Node and Mars, there may be some intense energies that will feel chaotic. The good news is that whatever events play out during this epic conjunction and in the following days and months, Uranus will awaken consciousness.  It's important not to get distracted by the 3D theatrics, but rather align with the higher frequencies and available galactic energies beaming in to accelerate our evolution.www.jilljardineastrology.com Intrinsic Drive™This show was born of a desire to explore and share individual and collective...Listen on: Apple Podcasts Spotify

In the late 1930's and early 1940's, there was very little opposition from the German church against Hitler and the rise of Nazism. Going against the tide, Deitrich Bonhoeffer preached it was not enough to follow Christ by preaching and praying. He unapologetically called for Christian action and, if need be, self-sacrifice in order to stop the atrocities against the Jews. Believing that Christian self-righteousness and complacency set the stage for the rise of Nazism, Bonhoeffer died trying to right the wrongs. In this episode, Kathy and Gary discuss the state of the Christian church in Nazi Germany, Bonhoeffer's willingness to stand up to the church's apathy, and the consequences of anti-Judaism in Christian theology.

He has spent the past 25 years speaking to audiences in all 50 states, on over 1000 college and high school campuses, at hundreds of professional and academic conferences, and to community groups across the nation. He has also lectured internationally in Canada and Bermuda, and has trained corporate, government, law enforcement and medical industry professionals on methods for dismantling racism in their institutions. Wise's antiracism work traces back to his days as a college activist in the 1980s, fighting for divestment from (and economic sanctions against) apartheid South Africa. After graduation, he threw himself into social justice efforts full-time, as a Youth Coordinator and Associate Director of the Louisiana Coalition Against Racism and Nazism: the largest of the many groups organized in the early 1990s to defeat the political candidacies of white supremacist and former Ku Klux Klan leader David Duke. From there, he became a community organizer in New Orleans' public housing, and a policy analyst for a children's advocacy group focused on combatting poverty and economic inequity. He has served as an adjunct professor at the Smith College School of Social Work, in Northampton, MA., and from 1999-2003 was an advisor to the Fisk University Race Relations Institute in Nashville, TN. Wise is the author of seven books, including his highly-acclaimed memoir, White Like Me: Reflections on Race from a Privileged Son, as well as Dear White America: Letter to a New Minority, and Under the Affluence: Shaming the Poor, Praising the Rich and Sacrificing the Future of America. His forthcoming book, White LIES Matter: Race, Crime and the Politics of Fear in America, will be released in 2018. His essays have appeared on Alternet, Salon, Huffington Post, Counterpunch, Black Commentator, BK Nation, Z Magazine and The Root, which recently named Wise one of the “8 Wokest White People We Know.” Wise has been featured in several documentaries, including “The Great White Hoax: Donald Trump and the Politics of Race and Class in America,” and “White Like Me: Race, Racism and White Privilege in America,” both from the Media Education Foundation. He also appeared alongside legendary scholar and activist, Angela Davis, in the 2011 documentary, “Vocabulary of Change.” In this public dialogue between the two activists, Davis and Wise discussed the connections between issues of race, class, gender, sexuality and militarism, as well as inter-generational movement building and the prospects for social change. Wise is also one of five persons—including President Barack Obama—interviewed for a video exhibition on race relations in America, featured at the National Museum of African American History and Culture in Washington DC. Additionally, his media presence includes dozens of appearances on CNN, MSNBC and NPR, feature interviews on ABC's 20/20 and CBS's 48 Hours, as well as videos posted on YouTube, Facebook and other social media platforms that have received over 20 million views. His podcast, “Speak Out with Tim Wise,” launched this fall and features weekly interviews with activists, scholars and artists about movement building and strategies for social change.

Hugo Marcus (1880–1966) was a man of many names and many identities. Born a German Jew, he converted to Islam and took the name Hamid, becoming one of the most prominent Muslims in Germany prior to World War II. He was renamed Israel by the Nazis and sent to the Sachsenhausen concentration camp before escaping to Switzerland. He was a gay man who never called himself gay but fought for homosexual rights and wrote queer fiction under the pen name Hans Alienus during his decades of exile. In German, Jew, Muslim, Gay: The Life and Times of Hugo Marcus (Columbia University Press, 2020), Marc David Baer uses Marcus's life and work to shed new light on a striking range of subjects, including German Jewish history and anti-Semitism, Islam in Europe, Muslim-Jewish relations, and the history of the gay rights struggle. Baer explores how Marcus created a unique synthesis of German, gay, and Muslim identity that positioned Johann Wolfgang von Goethe as an intellectual and spiritual model. Marcus's life offers a new perspective on sexuality and on competing conceptions of gay identity in the multilayered world of interwar and postwar Europe. His unconventional story reveals new aspects of the interconnected histories of Jewish and Muslim individuals and communities, including Muslim responses to Nazism and Muslim experiences of the Holocaust.

Singing Like Germans: Black Musicians in the Land of Bach, Beethoven, and Brahms by Kira Thurman (Cornell University Press, 2021) is a truly interdisciplinary study. Dr. Thurman's work sits at the intersection of German Studies, History, and Musicology. Beginning in the 1870s with concerts given by the Fisk Jubilee Singers, Singing Like Germans covers a century of Black musicians performing classical music in Germany and Austria. This sprawling book takes on how and why Black musicians came to Central Europe to perform classical music from their homes in North America, Africa, or the Caribbean, and what their reception reveals about German ideas of race, nationhood, and musical culture. She traces how the political tumult of one hundred years of war, Nazism, and the division between East and West Germany contributed to the changing circumstances of Black musicians in the area, but also how ideas of race remained remarkably consistent in all that time. Performers such as Roland Hayes, Marian Anderson, and Grace Bumbry, among many others, found opportunities in Central Europe denied them in other places, but audiences and critics understood their musicianship through racialized stereotypes and local political and cultural conditions. Given Singing Like German's wide breadth—chronologically and as a work of scholarship—this conversation is in the form a roundtable rather than a traditional interview. Three hosts from the New Books Network have come together to interview Dr. Thurman. Kristen Turner from New Books in Music is a lecturer in the music and honors departments at North Carolina State University. Her research centers on race and class in American popular entertainment at the turn of the twentieth century. Emily Allen (@emmyru91) is a host with New Books in Music and New Books in Celebration Studies.

The two look at how Darwinism fueled scientific racism and an aggressive and frequently racist eugenics movement not just in Nazi Germany but, earlier, in the United States, where many leading, even mainstream voices, including Planned Parenthood founder Margaret Sanger, top business magnates, and some liberal Protestants enamored of evolutionary theory pushed compulsory sterilization laws, which were passed in Indiana, California, and other states.

Hank Hanegraaff, president of the Christian Research Institute and host of the Bible Answer Man broadcast, reflects on the fact that while certainly not all evolutionists are racists, the theory of evolution is inherently racist. In The Descentof Man (1871), Charles Darwin speculated, “At some future period, not very distant as measured by centuries, the civilizedraces of man will almost certainly exterminate, and replace, the savage races throughout the world.” For evolution to succeed, it is as crucial that the unfit die as that the fittest survive. Adolf Hitler's philosophy that Jews were subhuman and that Aryans were supermen led to the extermination of six million Jews. In the words of Sir Arthur Keith, a militant anti-Christian physical anthropologist, “The German Führer, as I have consistently maintained, is an evolutionist; he has consciously sought to make the practice of Germany conform to the theory of evolution.” While the evolutionary racism of Darwin's day is politically incorrect today, current biology textbooks still promote vestiges of racism. For example, consider the inherently racist recapitulation theory—known by the evolutionary phrase ontogeny recapitulates phylogeny, the odd idea that in the course of an embryo's development, the embryo repeats or recapitulates the evolutionary history of its species. Not only is the recapitulation concept common fare in science curricula but has been championed in our generation by such luminaries as Carl Sagan. The fact that recapitulation is inherently racist is underscored by no less an evolutionary authority than Stephen Jay Gould, who lamented that “recapitulation provided a convenient focus for the pervasive racism of white scientists” in the modern era. How different the Christian worldview, according to which all human beings are created in the image of God. And in Christ, “there is neither Jew nor Gentile, neither slave nor free, nor is there male and female, for you are all one in Christ Jesus” (Galatians 3:28).For further study, see Richard Weikart, Darwinian Racism: How Darwinism Influenced Hitler, Nazism, and White Nationalism https://www.equip.org/product/cri-resource-darwinian-racism-how-darwinism-influenced-hitler-nazism-and-white-nationalism-wa0822/

Hank and Richard discuss groupthink and the collective embrace of eugenics, if Darwin was a racist, how Darwinism influenced eugenics, if racism is fundamental to Darwin's theory of evolution, why woke culture hasn't turned on Charles Darwin given his statements on women and other races, and the impact of Ernst Haeckel's drawings on education and evolution.

He has spent the past 25 years speaking to audiences in all 50 states, on over 1000 college and high school campuses, at hundreds of professional and academic conferences, and to community groups across the nation. He has also lectured internationally in Canada and Bermuda, and has trained corporate, government, law enforcement and medical industry professionals on methods for dismantling racism in their institutions. Wise's antiracism work traces back to his days as a college activist in the 1980s, fighting for divestment from (and economic sanctions against) apartheid South Africa. After graduation, he threw himself into social justice efforts full-time, as a Youth Coordinator and Associate Director of the Louisiana Coalition Against Racism and Nazism: the largest of the many groups organized in the early 1990s to defeat the political candidacies of white supremacist and former Ku Klux Klan leader David Duke. From there, he became a community organizer in New Orleans' public housing, and a policy analyst for a children's advocacy group focused on combatting poverty and economic inequity. He has served as an adjunct professor at the Smith College School of Social Work, in Northampton, MA., and from 1999-2003 was an advisor to the Fisk University Race Relations Institute in Nashville, TN. Wise is the author of seven books, including his highly-acclaimed memoir, White Like Me: Reflections on Race from a Privileged Son, as well as Dear White America: Letter to a New Minority, and Under the Affluence: Shaming the Poor, Praising the Rich and Sacrificing the Future of America. His forthcoming book, White LIES Matter: Race, Crime and the Politics of Fear in America, will be released in 2018. His essays have appeared on Alternet, Salon, Huffington Post, Counterpunch, Black Commentator, BK Nation, Z Magazine and The Root, which recently named Wise one of the “8 Wokest White People We Know.” Wise has been featured in several documentaries, including “The Great White Hoax: Donald Trump and the Politics of Race and Class in America,” and “White Like Me: Race, Racism and White Privilege in America,” both from the Media Education Foundation. He also appeared alongside legendary scholar and activist, Angela Davis, in the 2011 documentary, “Vocabulary of Change.” In this public dialogue between the two activists, Davis and Wise discussed the connections between issues of race, class, gender, sexuality and militarism, as well as inter-generational movement building and the prospects for social change. Wise is also one of five persons—including President Barack Obama—interviewed for a video exhibition on race relations in America, featured at the National Museum of African American History and Culture in Washington DC. Additionally, his media presence includes dozens of appearances on CNN, MSNBC and NPR, feature interviews on ABC's 20/20 and CBS's 48 Hours, as well as videos posted on YouTube, Facebook and other social media platforms that have received over 20 million views. His podcast, “Speak Out with Tim Wise,” launched this fall and features weekly interviews with activists, scholars and artists about movement building and strategies for social change. Wise graduated from Tulane University in 1990 and received antiracism training from the People's Institute for Survival and Beyond, in New Orleans. Ryan Busse is a former firearms executive who helped build one of the world's most iconic gun companies, and was nominated multiple times by industry colleagues for the prestigious Shooting Industry Person of The Year Award. Busse is an environmental advocate who served in many leadership roles for conservation organizations, including as an advisor for the United States Senate Sportsmen's Caucus and the Biden Presidential Campaign. He remains a proud outdoorsman, gun owner, father, and resident of Montana. About the book.... A long-time former executive at one of the country's top gun manufacturers reveals how his industry radicalized a large swathe of America, and explains how it must change before we can reduce gun violence and heal as a nation. Ryan Busse has traveled a long, circuitous path along the American gun journey. As an avid hunter, outdoorsman, and conservationist–all things that the firearms industry was built on–he rose to the highest ranks of the rapidly growing, multibillion-dollar firearms industry. But replacing self-imposed decency with rampant fear-mongering, racism, hardline conservative politics, massive profits from semi-automatic weapons sales, and McCarthyesque policing have driven Busse to do something few other gun executives have done: he's ending his 30-year career in the industry to tell its secrets. He watched the industry change from its smaller, less corporate and far-less-powerful form to the partisan, power-hungry entity it is today. He thought he could go up against the power of the industry from within, and over the years had made small inroads toward sensible gun ownership and use. But that's simply not possible anymore. This book is an insider's call-out, a voice-driven tale of personal transformation, and a fast ride through wild times and colorful characters that populate a much-speculated-about, but little-known industry. It's also a story of how authoritarianism spreads in the guise of freedom, how voicing one's conscience becomes an act of treason in a culture that demands sameness and loyalty.
