187. The Common Sense We Need | Book Review

Common sense is in short supply nowadays. People are up in arms about politics, but should we be? Well, Thomas Paine explains his case for rebellion, and I can say we're nowhere close to that. After reading his pamphlet arguing for independence, I don't think we're anywhere close. So, listen below to find out why.... Continue Reading →

184. Crazy Elections in America’s Past

This year's election is no doubt one of the most interesting we've had, and certainly unique. Trump's presidency was notable in many ways, and that continued through the 2020 election. With all the chaos and confusion around this election, I thought it would be good to take a look at some crazy elections in the past. That way, we can use lessons from history and apply them to our current circumstance. So, I sat down with Kenny Ryan from the Abridged Presidential Histories Podcast to dive into a few insane elections. If you'd like to learn more about his podcast, you can check that out here.

Politics – All About It

A lack of knowledge doesn't stop people from offering their ideas - however misguided they may be. It's also too common to hear questions like "Why is it important to be involved in politics?" Or, "What is politics and why is it important?" That's why I'm putting this together to offer a guide to learning and discussing the topic. That way, you can educate yourself on the topic an be able to speak to it and defend your position.

182. What Divides Libertarians – My Conversation with Sean Boston

What divides libertarians is often just degrees of liberty that should be allowed and tactics of how to achieve those ends. Mainly, libertarians argue over how to vote, or even if they should. Also, they argue over the minutiae of many minor disagreements, instead of finding where they have common ground. Instead, they should focus on how to move forward on what they agree on.

181. Have a Merry Christmas!

I hope you are having a Merry Christmas! Today, I want to remember what this day is about and take a moment to read the stories given to us about the birth of Jesus. So, I will read the stories of the Nativity in the gospels of Matthew and Luke. It's important to go back to these stories, which is why today's episode will do just that. Instead of telling people to "keep the Christ in Christmas," I want to do that. If you agree, join me in reading these stories, and take time to reflect on what they teach.

180. Talking Politics And Virtue

In our society, politics has jumped to the front of most everyone's mind. Despite its prominence in our lives, it seems that many people don't know how to talk about it. But, that doesn't have to be the case. A while ago, I sat down to talk with the guys from the Vital Masculinity Podcast... Continue Reading →

179. Book Review | The Recovery of Family Life by Scott Yenor

So, I'm now back in the office for recording, and if you can't see it you should check out my YouTube Channel. You'll be able to watch the book reviews and see the new office. But, to get to the topic for this episode, I'll be discussing a book by Scott Yenor. The Recovery of Family Life is an insightful look into the attack on the family, and how to push back. I learned about this book because someone reached out to me about it. After reading most of it, I can say this is a crucial read for everyone in our culture today. Unlike other reviews I've done, this is one that someone reached out to me to review. And, I'm glad she did. If it weren't for her reaching out, I wouldn't have found this book that has really intrigued me. I must say that this has really changed how I approach some of the cultural-political problems we face.

177. Book Review | Plato’s Republic

Plato, one of the best known Greek philosophers, was a student of Socrates and a teacher of Aristotle. He's notable not only for his tremendous insight into philosophy, but his style as well. Instead of explaining his ideas in a long soliloquy, he used dialogue to teach. For his dialogues, he uses Socrates and what we now know as the Socratic method to extract ideas from his characters. In Plato's Republic, we take a look at what he thinks the ideal society would be. So, let's take a look at what Plato has to say about his ideal political situation.

Today is mailbag day! So, I'll be answering your Mailbag Questions. Before I dive into those questions, I'll be talking about a tweet of mine that went viral and why I think it did. Plus, I'll discuss how people misunderstood what I was getting at with the tweet. Then, I'll talk about what I really was trying to get at.
