166. Election Thoughts, Libertarianism, ACB and More with Sean Boston

With the election today, I thought it would be good to share a discussion I had with Sean Boston where we talked about our election thoughts and much more. We talked about ACB, Libertarianism, and our secularizing culture. Furthermore, we were able to agree and disagree, while having a lively discussion. Plus, it helps that Sean is a very funny guy, and much sharper than he gives himself credit for. So, dive into the conversation here:

Final Election Thoughts

I wanted to be sure to get this episode out before the election was over. Mainly, I was hoping to be able to get my thoughts and predictions out there before it happens. This quote from Benjamin Netanyahu sums up my thoughts on what will likely happen with Trump pretty well. And, this is how I evaluate what’s going on around me in politics to make a decision.

“I always lose the election in the polls, and I always win it on election day.”

Plus we dove into more than just Election Thoughts

Also, we discuss much more than just our thoughts on the election and potential outcomes. We looked at what it means to be a “real libertarian,” if there even is such a thing. Moreover, we talked about the woes of the Libertarian party, and my misgivings about Jo Jorgensen. Next, we dove into our thoughts on the nomination (that hadn’t happened at the time) for Amy Coney Barrett. We talked about the secularization of our society and some of the fallout we expect to see. And, we discussed much more as well. If you enjoy, funny and insightful conversations, I think you’ll get a lot out of this one.

188. Finding Unity and Mending a Divided Nation Conversation of Our Generation

Our country is obviously divided, politically, culturally, and religiously. Despite living in the same country under the same laws, we have two separate nations in our country. In this episode, I'll discuss mending a divided nation and how we find unity amid all the chaos. How We're Divided We have divided ourselves in many ways across this country. We've separated ourselves into religious and secular, conservative and liberal, coastal and heartland, and in numerous other ways. With all of these differences, how can we even say we're one country? Discussions of secession come up on both sides of the political aisle, and many take it as an inevitability. What is dividing us? Mainstream Media, politicians, educational systems and numerous institutions seek to tear us apart instead of bringing us together. "Even if a unity of faith is not possible, a unity of love is." -Hans Urs von Balthasar Methods for Mending a Divided Nation I've spoken previously about what we need to come together, but I'm going to recap some of those thoughts. Basically, I think we need to first see each other as fellow human beings, fellow citizens. Rather than seeing political opponents as evil or vicious, we should see our friend or family member who holds those views in each person. We easily jump to conclusions about people instead of trying to understand them. So, if we are to have a healthy political and cultural life, we need to be able to discuss politics well. This means we have to know our own beliefs and biases, and discuss ideas with knowledge of our own potential pitfalls. We need to learn the lessons of the past and seek to mend and understand each other without wanting to dominate or control each other. — Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/conofourgen/support
