In yesterday’s podcast, I had the distinct pleasure of talking to two of the best bloggers around, Gerard Vanderleun of American Digest and Siggy of Sigmund, Carl and Alfred. We talked about anti-Americanism, English cooking (including toast) and several other topics.
On the subject of education, we discussed a generation of students growing up without a real education on what it means to be an American:
Classical education’s being replaced by presentism and relativism
On middle class values and conditions:
When you are part of an economic group, you become an oppressor…. People are driven to hatred, and then to violence, when they realize they can not control others with their beliefs
Exactly; this is called the Vision of the Annointed, which is one of the best books I’ve ever read which outlines this mindset. The problem in America is that you have this great divide, and again, you have three generations of a certain elite leftist ideology that feeds upon itself that is driving the educational system, and not only that, is driving social services as well.
We also talked about commercialand, the pattycake war, the grains that bind, and Bill and Hillary.
The podcast is such fun, it might even be fattening.
All that, and Siggy and I discussed the necktie dilemma – Is Siggy a necktie guy?
Will Gerard and Siggy revoke my blogging license since I’m a morning blogger?
