Just two days removed from his inauguration as Governor of the Commonwealth of Virginia, Glenn Youngkin appears poised to give voters a strong return on their investment. Charlie unpacks his opening day executive orders and why they signal a continuation of the trend we've been following on this show of the Regime's Fall. Charlie is also joined this episode by Kelly Shackelford, President and CEO of First Liberty Institute, to walk through the Supreme Court's latest decisions regarding vaccine mandates and to highlight how First Liberty has been in the fight every step of the way in order to keep unconstitutional edicts from the Biden White House at bay.

In gut zwei Wochen gehts los mit den olympischen Winterspielen in Peking. Die Spiele werden von Gigantismus und Propaganda geprägt sein. Für viele Athletinnen und Athleten werden sie der Karrierehöhepunkt sein. Wie soll sich die Politik verhalten? – das fragen wir Daniel Eckmann im «Tagesgespräch». Olympische Winterspiele in einer Region, wo es keinen Wintersport gibt – ist das zu verantworten? Das chinesische Regime hat Milliarden investiert, um der Welt und der eigenen Bevölkerung eine perfekte Propaganda-Show zu zeigen. Den Sportlern kann man keinen Vorwurf machen, dass sie vom IOC in eine Diktatur geschickt werden. Und die Politik? Soll sie in Peking vertreten sein? Noch zögert der Bundesrat. Daniel Eckmann war selber Spitzensportler und hat 1980 die Olympiade in Moskau boykottiert. Als Sprecher von Bundesrat Villiger hat er sich auch auf dem politischen Parkett bewegt und kann die beiden Bereiche gut zusammenfügen. Eckmann fordert Reformen im Weltsport: Der Gigantismus könne so nicht mehr weitergehen. Er ist Gast von Marc Lehmann.
Charlie details how Joe Biden is now officially upside down in recent polling in the one area where the president had continued to hold on to a slight edge in his approval–COVID. Now that he's underwater, Biden is appealing to media companies and social media platforms to further censor voices of "disinformation" (like this show, according to the Regime). Charlie breaks down exactly what is causing this slide as more and more dissident voices are continuing to sound the alarm and fight back against mandates and the vaccines or bust strategy. Meanwhile USA Today rightly gets lambasted for trying to excuse pedophilia as "normal." Meanwhile Charlie analyzes Krysten Sinema's Senate floor speech in defense of the Senate filibuster, essentially preempting his federal government power grab of states' elections. Finally Kamala Harris freezes when asked about 2024 while rumors of Hillary Clinton running continue to gain traction.

Project Veritas has released documents suggesting that COVID-19 is the product of U.S. taxpayer funds through EcoHealth Alliance. If true, this would confirm what the editors have been thinking out loud on The Roundtable for months. Realizing that now is the time to pivot away from COVID hysteria, the regime now faces the monumental task of talking down the very people it spent three years traumatizing. Plus: President Biden's voting rights demagoguery is both amusing and horrifying at once—is there a quantum pill to be had?

[00:30] Economic Collapse 17 minutes)Inflation is out of control in America. After one year of the illegitimate Biden presidency, used cars cost 37 percent more, furniture is up 14 percent, and gas is up more than 50 percent. The cost of housing, food and clothes is also spiking at historic rates. Year-over-year producer prices soared by 9.7 percent in December, making it the biggest increase on record. The overall 7 percent increase of inflation over 2020 is the highest jump in nearly four decades. As one reporter said, “This type of inflation can ultimately derail an economy.” [17:05] CNN Loses Nearly 90 Percent of Its Audience (16 minutes)Fox News is now the most-watched cable network on television, while CNN has lost nearly 90 percent of its 2021 audience. For the past year, CNN and other left-wing media outlets have been claiming the Nov. 3, 2020, election was perfect, that Jan. 6, 2021, was an “insurrection,” and that this “insurrection” was incited by Donald Trump. Fox News has been much more open to alternative views. And it seems to be paying off big time in the ratings war. [33:15] Bible Study: Man's Stupendous Purpose (21 minutes)Herbert W. Armstrong often spoke about people being victims of circumstances around them, drifting through life without any clear direction or purpose. But God has set before us the most stupendous purpose imaginable—that of becoming just like our Father in heaven! That is the awe-inspiring purpose for which He created mankind.
For the first time since Pete Carroll's second season in Seattle, the Seahawks finish a season with a losing record. Did finishing the year on a high note convince Brock & Salk that the Hawks should keep Pete Carroll, Russell Wilson and John Schneider? Brock has a recipe for the Seahawks to return to championship form that allows for all 3 parties to coexist. Plus--was Salk right all along about what the Hawks' need to do? Salk read something about a Mariners' prospect that has him over-the-moon excited about the future in Seattle.

Ich treffe die Künstlerin Jiny Lan kurz vor den Weihnachtsfeiertagen. Künstlerin. – Eigentlich mag sie es nicht, wenn man sie so nennt. Viel zu einschränkend ist der Begriff. Steht sie doch im Wettbewerb mit den großen Malerfürsten unserer Zeit. Männern wie George Baselitz, Anselm Kiefer oder Joseph Beuys. Im Salon des Kunst und Haltung e.V. sprechen wir über Sexismus, Machokultur und Feminismus, Einschränkungen und Poesie von Sprache und wie es Jiny Kraft ihrer Kunst gelungen ist, Familienfehden zu beenden. Dabei erhalte ich Einblicke in ein faszinierendes Leben zwischen China und Deutschland und lerne, wie die unterschiedlichen Regime und Kulturen sich auf Jinys Arbeit und Persönlichkeit auswirken.

Two kinds of revolutions:Throwing off an external oppressorOften violent, sometimes notForcing regime change in your own country through extra-political or violent meansLargely violentLargely nonviolentThe outcomes tend to be very different.(Focusing on outcomes where they win -- turns out most revolutions fail militarily)Those throwing off an outsider tend to work out pretty well!US revolutionSpanish-American independenceHaitian slave revolt (note unlike many slave revolts, the Haitians were the natives)Indian revolution (mostly)Greek & Balkan revolutions, generally the revolutions of Nationalism of the 19th centuryGenerally the anticolonial revolutionsThose forcing internal change through violence tend to lead to brutal dictatorshipsRussian revolutionFrench revolutionChinese revolutionEnglish revolutionCuban revolutionIranian revolutionRoman Republic revolutions / civil warsGENERALLY:-Kicking people out works out pretty well-Civil wars don't: they lead to dictatorshipsOK why?-Kicking people out: you use tribalism to your advantageYour people are united against an outsiderOnce it's over, the outsiders can generally leave-Regime change: tribalism works against youYour people are divided because you're using violence to create winners and losersOnce it's over, the defeated folks stick around (see: the Iraq war and the Baath party)But there's a second bit: When you have an internal revolution, you're using violence not just against the current system, but at the very idea of legitimacy of any given system. You set a precedent: if I don't like it, I can use violence to change it.Any regime, or system of government, relies on legitimacy. Building that legitimacy is hard. Lots of people study this. It usually relies on traditions, taught and shared belief systems, propaganda, and enough of a track record that people feel they have some means of getting their needs met through the system some reasonable amount of the time.So you end up reverting to using raw power, secret police, fear, etc. You don't have unity or legitimacy so you can only resort to violence.When that doesn't work, you end up losing the revolution and either the old regime comes back pretty quickly (English revolution) or you have ongoing violent anarchy where everyone is getting beheaded, including the children of the revolution, until a strongman comes in and restores order and people are generally OK with this (French, Roman Republic revolutions)See: Machiavelli's PrinceWe must be wary in our own democracies of escalating rhetoric and actions that chip away at the legitimacy of the liberal system. Liberal systems are designed to solve problems through a process: when you eschew that process to get what you need, you erode that legitimacy and bring about its downfall, and what's going to come next will be ugly.Support this show http://supporter.acast.com/reconsiderpodcast.

From Atlanta to Afghanistan to Omicron, the closing acts of the Dumpster Fire known as 2021 sent shockwaves through the American Zeitgeist and dealt near-deadly blows to the Biden Regime. In the final installment of this special two-part episode of The Charlie Kirk Show, Charlie picks up where he left off in this show's sister episode with coverage of the Georgia Voting Law and the absurd overreaction from the Regime before highlighting a couple important climaxes that marked an attitude adjustment in the American People. As the Regime loses its grip on the narrative, the truth seems poised to prevail and the momentum of the people seems primed to carry America forward as we tumble towards 2022.

Charlie reflects on 2021, an absolute dumpster fire of a year, replaying the major news stories along with contemporaneous audio clips as he builds out the dominant themes of the first half of 2021. From the Jan 6th Capitol breach and the 2nd impeachment of President Trump, to his ultimate acquittal, the Game Stop short squeeze, the blockage of the Suez Canal by a rogue container ship, the and rise of the immigration crisis at our southern border, Charlie plays the tape and builds the case for why the Rise of the Regime was both terrifying and ultimately politically galvanizing for everyday Americans across the country. Be sure to catch PART 2 dropping soon on the Afghanistan withdrawal disgrace, the Georgia Voter Integrity bill AKA Jim Crow 2.0, Derek Chauvin's conviction, cyber attacks, billionaire space flights, the rise of the school board mom, and a red wave that swept through VA and NJ...

AUDIO/VIDEO: Craig-Paardekooper - Scientists compared variability between Flu vaccine lots with variability between Covid vaccine lots, and were shocked to find EXCESSIVE and HIGHLY UNUSUAL degree of variation between different lots of the Covid vaccines. When 22,000 flu vaccine lots were examined, almost all of them produced 5 or fewer severe adverse reactions per lot. Only 2 lots exceeded this (22 SAEs and 37 SAEs) When the same number of Covid vaccines were compared, there was found to be huge variation - with many lots producing 5 or fewer severe adverse reactions , but many others producing 1000-5000 severe adverse reactions. So the coefficient of variation for Covid vaccines is 1000% - compared to the coefficient of variation for flu vaccines (which is 99%) In other words, Covid vaccines vary 10 times more than flu vaccines.

https://youtu.be/QxSr_SoNxCE ... in reviving and building on Aristotle, St. Thomas introduced and established in the Christian world a philosophy of natural law, a philosophy in which human reason is able to master the basic truths of the universe. In the hands of Aquinas as in Aristotle, philosophy, with reason as its instrument of knowledge, became once again the queen of the sciences. Human reason demonstrated the reality of the universe, and of the natural law of discoverable classes of entities. Human reason could know about the nature of the world, and it could therefore know the proper ethics for mankind. Ethics, then, became decipherable by reason. Murray N.

Eine neue EU-Richtlinie schützt künftig sogenannte Whistleblower, die Missstände aufdecken wollen. Was ändert sich für sie und für Unternehmen? Neu müssen alle Unternehmen in der Europäischen Union mit mehr als 250 Mitarbeitenden oder mit einem Umsatz von mehr als 10 Millionen Euro ein Meldesystem einrichten. Benützen können es alle Angestellten, Lieferanten, Beraterinnen, Aktionären, wenn sie anonym über Unregelmässigkeiten berichten wollen. Auch für Schweizer Unternehmen, die in der EU geschäften, gilt das neue Regime. Was das für Unternehmen bedeutet und wieso sich Whistleblower in der Schweiz weiterehin auf dünnem Eis bewegen, erklärt Patrick Krauskopf, Professor an der Zürcher Hochschule für Angewandte Wissenschaften (ZHAW), Anwalt und Spezialist für Compliance- und Wettbewerbsrecht.
JOT FORM RIGHT HERE: Serve NOTICE Upon Public SERVANTS, Right NOW: https://form.jotform.com/213480955413153 You've heard the line about “all men are created equal” and the rights of life, liberty, and pursuit of happiness. But most Americans have never actually read the full document, or really processed exactly what the Declaration is saying. So we want to read a line from it, from right after the famous parts you've heard over and over again. Right after the part about the rights to life, liberty, and pursuit of happiness, Thomas Jefferson writes that, quote, “to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, [and] whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government.”. David Jose has a letter he wants Americans to send to their representatives in congress to demand change or else we as Americans shall demand it ourselves. The Regime – and by that we mean the establishment of both parties – the Regime wants you to forget about what happened in 2020. They want you to forget how countless laws were changed in key swing states to enable ballot harvesting, mail-in voting with no signature verification, and ballot collecting with no security measures and no reliable chain of custody. Seth Keshel joins to remind us. America has more than a million lawyers. Thomas Renz is only one of them, and he hasn't been a lawyer very long. Now, Renz is promoting a letter he has drafted for the public to send to their elected representatives. The letter points out many of the same things you've heard on this program: That the vast majority of Covid victims recover, that there is ample evidence of deaths linked to the vaccines, that the vaccines seem barely effective at stopping Covid infections, that shots are being forced on children even though they are at zero statistical risk of death from the virus. Under Vladimir Lenin and Joseph Stalin, the Soviet Union simply shot people who posed a problem. But in its later years, the Communist Party preferred to use slightly softer methods. That's when party leaders discovered the value of psychiatry. If you spoke up too loudly against the government, if you advocated freedom of religion or democratic elections or free market economics, the government wouldn't just imprison or censor or attack you. Instead, they would have you declared insane. Now, big media, big tech, and big government are claiming that people hurt by covid-19 vaccines are simply crazy or mentally ill.

The name for that change is "the Critical Turn in Education," which is, in brief, how Critical Theory has crept into education and education theory (pedagogy) and slowly perverted it from within. The madness in today's schools, then, is not some unhappy accident of the last year or even decade but the product of a dedicated march into the schooling institutions by Marxist, neo-Marxist, and Identity Marxist Theorists who have all but completely colonized it. This needs attention. Over the coming weeks and months, James Lindsay will be taking his listeners here on the New Discourses Podcast through the Critical Turn in Education so that they can know how and why these terrible changes have been implemented. In this first episode in this wide-ranging series, Lindsay dives into the new commitments Critical Pedagogy demands of teachers and students in the new Regime. Join James as he reads through a summary by Critical Education Theorist Michael Apple to learn exactly what these are.

Audio Sources Kawsachun News - Nicaragua 2021 Election Observer Press Conference November 10, 2021 Moderator: I present Paul Pumphrey from Friends of the Congo. Paul Pumphrey: Here in Nicaragua, I saw a free and fair election. I talked to many people who were not a part of the Sandinistas party. And yet they themselves said they were willing to accept whatever result happened in the election. Moderator: Next we have Craig Pasta Jardula who is a journalist based in the United States. Craig Pasta Jardula: Mainly, I want to talk about the process, meaning the chain of custody, because that's something that we really saw that was great here in Nicaragua, it made this election a home run. The chain of custody is very strong here, including the fact that in Nicaragua, we have something that is awesome that a lot of countries need to adopt, which is where the vote is cast, it is counted, that ensures a strong chain of custody. Moderator: Next is Rick Cohn from Friends of Latin America. 13:05 Rick Cohn: I want to speak just a little bit though a group of 11 of us went to Bilwi on the Caribbean coast. And in the United States, one of the things they'll use to say this election is fake, is that a high percentage of people voted, and a high percentage of people voted for the FSLN. And that can't happen, because American politicians that would never happen. Well, so I want to say something about why the voters told us they were voting. They told us that basically, they had two Category Four and Category Five hurricanes last year, and the government came and saved their lives, saved many, many lives. And, you know, people have trust in that government. And then the government came in and made sure the electric was up. In Puerto Rico from a year earlier, electric still isn't isn't working, because they, you know, are making money selling electric, but it still doesn't work. They told us they had new roofs put on almost immediately they were delivered. They told us that the schools were rebuilt. All of the schools were in good condition. Oh, the schools and some of them have new buildings. So we had a situation where they were very happy with the performance of the government. And that is why -- oh, they also told us they had one kilometer of road before the FSLN came into power from the neoliberal period, now they have 500 kilometers. And with 70 more kilometers, they'll be able to drive from all the way to Managua, which they've never been able to do in history. So they told us these things. And the FSLN party received the highest percentage of votes, but that's not strange, because they really support the government. They received 86.7% of the vote. You know, there's no way that's made up - it's not fake. It's where they're at. It is certainly the biggest deficiency in democracy in Nicaragua is the interference that there is so much interference from the US government and the media, and the censorship and the lies that they tell. That's the interference that's occurring in this election. 33:52 Rick Cohn: Corporate media like Facebook, well, all of the corporate media including Facebook and Twitter, but social media, are actually just part of the US system and they're contracted to provide information back and forth, they're actually an aspect of the government and they close 1000s of people's accounts, who are people, and I met some of them, they're actual people, and they close their accounts. And they weren't, you know, anyone who was saying anything other than the fact that they may have been supporting the Nicaraguan people or opposed to the the sanctions on Nicaragua. AN INTERNATIONAL RESPONSE TO ORTEGA'S DESTRUCTION OF DEMOCRACY IN NICARAGUA September 21, 2021 House Committee on Foreign Affairs, Subcommittee on the Western Hemisphere, Civilian Security, Migration and International Economic Policy *Hearing not on C-SPAN Witnesses: Emily Mendrala Deputy Assistant Secretary of State at the Bureau of Western Hemisphere Affairs Laure Chinchilla Former President of Costa Rica Co-Chair at The Inter-American Dialogue Ryan Berg, PhD Senior Fellow in the Americas Program at the Center for Strategic and International Studies (CSIS) Oct. 2018 - Apr. 2021: Research Fellow at the American Enterprise Institute Apr. 2018 - Oct. 2018: Research Consultant at The World Bank July 2014 - Oct 2014: US State Department negotiator at the Organization of American States (OAS) 2009: Intern for Paul Ryan Berta Valle Wife of Felix Maradiaga Rep. Albio Sires (D-NJ): The regime has rounded up nearly every potential challenger to Ortega and has not even tried to hide these arrests and forced disappearances under the veneer of legality. 05:42 Rep. Albio Sires (D-NJ): Having written the NICA Act with Congresswoman Ileana Ros-Lehtinen (R-FL), I am frustrated that the International Monetary Fund recently provided $350 million to the regime. The IMF should not take Ortega's us word for it that these funds will be used to address the COVID pandemic. 06:53 Rep. Albio Sires (D-NJ): We should also begin preparing a number of severe diplomatic consequences, assuming Nicaragua's election in November becomes a coronation for Ortega. Nicaragua should be suspended under the International Democratic Charter on November 8, and its participation under the Central America Free Trade Agreement should be reconsidered. 10:39 Rep. Mark Green (R-TN): On November 7 a political farce will be held, claiming to resemble elections. No one should be fooled about the outcome -- any hope of unseating the socialist dictatorship is sitting inside of Ortega's prisons. 13:56 *Emily Mendrala: As you are well aware, the Ortega-Murillo government has carried out a ruthless crackdown over the past several months, canceling the registration of opposition parties, incarcerating journalists, opposition leaders, potential presidential candidates, students, private sector leaders and others who defend free and fair elections, attacking the free press, closing long standing NGOs that provide humanitarian and medical assistance to Nicaraguans in need. 15:06 Emily Mendrala: In the face of sham elections in Nicaragua, we and our international partners must continue to denounce and push back against the Ortega-Murillo government's anti-democratic rule as well as its use of Russian-inspired laws to carry out repression. 17:56 Emily Mendrala: Through USAID we continue to support Nicaraguan civil society, independent media and human rights defenders. Our continued support assures Nicaraguans that the outside world has not forgotten them. 19:06 Rep. Albio Sires (D-NJ): Are we using our voice? Is the administration using its voice and vote with international financial institution to oppose loans and other financial assistance to Ortega? Because I have to tell you, it's very upsetting to me that we do all this work here. We asked the administration to put sanctions on different people. And yet the IMF, which we probably contribute the largest amount of money, or if not, one of the largest amounts of money, they seem to just ignore what's going on in Nicaragua. And it has to -- I intend to write a letter to the IMF. And hopefully we'll have them before this committee, because this is not acceptable. 20:22 Emily Mendrala: We are using our voice and our vote and every opportunity in front of multilateral institutions to oppose lending to the Ortega-Murillo government. We will continue to use our voice, vote and influence to advocate against lending from international financial institutions to the Ortega-Murillo government and we will also continue to collaborate with international partners where appropriate: EU, Canada and others to do the same. 30:43 Rep. Joaquin Castro (D-TX): The upcoming November 7 elections will be neither free nor fair 1:04:30 Berta Valle: Even though Félix [Maradiaga] has dedicated his life to serving our country, the regime has charged him and others with a conspiracy to undermine national integrity. The government is alleging that Félix and others were part of a global conspiracy to use foreign resources, including from the US Agency for International Development, the International Republican Institute and the National Endowment for Democracy to harm the interests of the nation. 1:16:33 Ryan Berg: As well as November 7, I think we need to declare Nicaragua's elections illegitimate under current conditions. 1:27:16 Ryan Berg: Thank you, Congressman Green, for the question. Yes, the two countries that I would point out as extra-hemispheric actors who have have come into the hemisphere to shore up the Ortega regime are Russia and Iran. Russia, we've seen with a significant presence in Nicaragua for a while. Its increased its presence in past years, to an extent that I think should be very alarming for the US government. Not only does it have a number of port agreements with Nicaragua, and access to the Caribbean, where it can engage in anti access and area denial capabilities, potentially. But also in cyberspace. We saw recently the Russians and Nicaraguans sign a major agreement in the cyberspace, particularly to help the regime not only increase its domestic security apparatus, but to spy potentially on the opposition on our own citizens, and indeed, potentially on on other governments in Central America, depending upon the strength of the equipment transfers that we'll see in future. So they have a whole number or whole range of capabilities that they are developing within Nicaragua, that there are signals intelligence stations that are actually quite close to the US Embassy in Managua. And so that's that's Russia, Russia has an interest in shoring up this regime on the cheap. And I think Iran has approached the regime in a number of ways, most specifically, in offering partnerships to circumvent US sanctions architecture, in which it excels, because of the sanctions architecture that it has been under for so long. And we haven't seen as deep I would say, as a presence of the Iranians in Nicaragua, but it's it's there and it's also concerning. I think, in general, Congressman, part of the Ortega regime's plan for survival is to sort of recreate a situation of rivalry and enmity in Central America again, and lend a platform for major geopolitical competitors to the United States to increase their capabilities on the US doorstep and I think that's a significant aspect of this political, economic and social crisis here. 1:35:50 Rep. Albio Sires (D-NJ): If the Ortega regime moves ahead was stealing this November's elections the international community must come together to impose a very steep price. John Bolton: Miami Dade College's National Historic Landmark Freedom Tower November 1, 2018 John Bolton: The "Troika of Tyranny" in this hemisphere -- Cuba, Venezuela and Nicaragua -- has finally met its match. John Bolton: Today in this hemisphere we are also confronted once again, with the destructive forces of oppression, socialism and totalitarianism. In Cuba, Venezuela and Nicaragua, we see the perils of poisonous ideologies left unchecked. Nicaraguan President Speech at the United Nations General Assembly September 25, 2007 16:50 President Daniel Ortega: The General Assembly is simply a reflection of this world where a capitalist and imperialist minority is imposing global capitalism to impoverish the world continue to enslave us all and promote apartheid against Latin American immigrants and against African immigrants in Europe. This global capitalism is one beast and it has tentacles everywhere. 25:30 President Daniel Ortega: They have to understand once and for all, that just as they have managed to profit from privatizations that have given rise to these huge multi-nationals that then set up in developing countries, they say that they are helping us. No business person provides assistance, they simply go to earn as much money as they can, they don't go to invest. Developing countries are considered to be insecure countries, and we are simply being ransacked. If we compare the volume of riches that they're extracting from our countries -- the capitalists in developed countries I'm talking about -- through their major companies, the globalized multinationals. If we can compare that wealth with what the Latin American immigrants send back to their families from the U.S. or the Asian and African families in Europe send back to their families, it is a miserable amount compared to the volume of wealth that is extracted on a daily basis by these forms of institutionalized oppression. 28:30 President Daniel Ortega: These companies are simply using cheap labor. They are benefiting from clauses in free trade agreements. I've got us free trade, why not? Free trade for societies and nations. But clearly in that system, it's the law of the jungle the strongest will impose themselves on the rest. What well the world needs is fair trade. What the world demands is really a genuine change in the capitalist, globalized, imperialist economies, that is where we need to have a change. They have to change this concept that they have of a free market. They have to change the slant of these free trade agreements. Nicaraguan Presidential Address to Congress April 16, 1991 20:00 President Violetta Chamorro: My government is committed to radically reducing government intervention in the economy and the enormous bureaucratic apparatus that we have inherited. Our Congress approved a law that authorizes private banks to operate and encourages foreign investments and is studying the privatization law in order to convert government to businesses. We are rapidly advancing towards the establishment of a social market economy. Restrictions on prices and salaries must be lifted. Likewise, we have initiated a serious economic stabilization program accompanied by the corresponding tax reforms in order to discipline and improve and decrease public spending to encourage domestic production and to stimulate private domestic and foreign investment.

This week I'm joined again by Dr. Brad Evans. Brad is a professor of Political Violence at the department of Politics, Languages & International Studies at the University of Bath. His latest book is called Ecce Humanitas: Beholding the Pain of Humanity. In this conversation we discuss the state of the world now: What are the issues we are facing? Who is controlling the narrative of our time? Are there any solutions? Are we trapped in a totalitarian regime and don't know it? Brad has an incredible mind that understands the inner workings of power, violence, and subjugation.
