Clifton Duncan was an accomplished Broadway actor who had graduated from an extremely selective elite program, and was making television appearances alongside people you would know. His star was most certainly on the rise. Then the mandates came, and Clifton declined the shot. He now waits tables. Well, the crazies didn't just ruin Clifton's career; they're in the process of destroying American theater, period, as Clifton explains in this episode. But there's good news: Clifton wants to develop a one-man show on the life and ideas of Thomas Sowell. Let's help him make it happen!

Millions of American Christians have come to believe in a heterodox theology according to which the physical return of the Jewish people to their ancestral lands is necessary to bring about the return of Christ and the end of the world. Furthermore, during the tribulation that will ensue, believers in this theology will be "raptured" into heaven and spared the unspeakable terrors that will then afflict the human race. This theological opinion would have been news to Augustine and St. Thomas, not to mention Martin Luther and the Protestant movement. Brent McGuire, senior pastor at Our Redeemer Lutheran Church in Dallas, sets the record straight.

He correctly identified the villains in America -- not rich people as a class, but a specific group of unjustly rich people. At the same time, the powers that be are not shaking in their boots that someone singing "Ain't Got a Dollar" is popular among the masses; that's exactly the mentality they want the masses to have.

Carrie Gress joins us to discuss several early feminist thinkers and the biographical and intellectual details that the usual story excludes.

Eric Peters discusses the situation, the drawbacks to electric cars (though he is fine with people who prefer them) and whether there's any jumping off this train.

Conservatives complain about the extremes to which the civil rights revolution has been taken, but almost none of them dare to go to the root. In the traditional American conservative way, they eventually come to celebrate the very thing they once deplored, and then wonder why they keep losing. Jesse Merriam joins me to discuss the true ramifications of Brown vs. Board of Education. This is a discussion you cannot have in mainstream America today because you would be engaged in serious thought and constitutional analysis and the other side would be screaming slogans at you. But the conversation has to take place somewhere.
