Ritual Humiliation [UN-IVERSITY]

A very large group convenes to discuss the recent viral Time Magazine article called "The Secret History of the Shadow Campaign That Saved the 2020 Election." It was presented to me a "confession" but I see more as psychological warfare and demoralization. Scott Hambrick joined us for the discussion and called a "ritual humiliation" of all non-blue-pilled Americans. Then Scott asked: so now that we know this is how politics will work going forward, what do we do? This led to one of my favorite Un-iversity discussions to date, and from there we transition into communication strategies to reach the potentially reachable people in our personal lives, at this incredibly crucial time. Several new voices and points of view here! ...

The Making of A Mindless Movement – A Teacher’s Perspective On Student Walkouts [PODCAST #556]

This April we'll be showered with more misguided student walkouts and other "teen-led" gun control activism displays. Shortly after releasing Podcast #552: #ENOUGH – With Thaddeus Russell I received an email from a public school teacher who wished to remain anonymous. I thought this was an important perspective to share with you, and I was grateful for the opportunity to give this teacher a platform. Hi Brett, I am an elementary school teacher and a relatively new listener to your show. When the School Walkout happened, I was compelled to write about it. Then, I heard your latest episode with Thad Russell! Many of the thoughts you shared are also echoed in my piece. Perhaps I am preaching to the ...
