John Loeffler: September 17, 2018

If socialism is such a wonderful concept, why does it always fail and result in tragic results?  In this week's boralogue, John looks at the evils of socialism using Nicaragua and Venezuela as case studies, contrasting the totalitarianism in those countries with the freedoms our Constitution provides here.  The media will always praise socialism but we know the truth: it fails whenever it rears its Marxist head.

 

Social justice has morphed into a politically correct cudgel against free speech, but did it start out that way?  Michael Rectenwald (www.springtimeforsnowflakes.com), Liberal Studies Professor at NYU, rejoins the program to discuss how the origins of social justice were rooted in conservatism and family, but from there morphed into its current form of political correctness and totalitarianism.

 

After so many years of so-called importance, why is the issue of climate change found near the bottom of many people's concern lists now? Anthony Watts (www.wattsupwiththat.com), Founder and Editor of climate blog Watts Up With That, looks at both the history and future of climate change mania and notes the coercive tactics that alarmists have used to enforce their narrative.

 

The Catholic Church abuse scandal could be worse than many realize.  Philip Lawler (www.catholicculture.org), Director of Catholic Culture, examines the internal politics of the Church, how the Pope factors into it, and the often overlooked need for reform.

 

John’s quote of the week:    

"In free societies, the laws are limited and very clear.  In totalitarian societies, they are many and they are vague.  That way anyone can be guilty whenever they have to be.  So people start self-censoring for fear of arbitrarily violating these norms, which are constantly changing."
