29: E Michael Jones | Catholicism, Julius Nyerere, Ethnicity, Usury and Global Development
Have we misunderstood the past completely? Is that why we appear to be in so much trouble in the present, and future?
We are living in a turbulent period of time when so many once seemingly solid ideas, values and institutions are being questioned and often rejected. Especially liberalism, the dominance of the individual over the group, and the supreme importance given to the satisfaction of each individual's material and worldly desires.
Challenges are coming from the right, the left, from left-field, from the past, from other cultures, from other worldviews.
Even the way we think of the past is changing dramatically.
All this questioning is to profoundly re-shape the direction in which our world is heading. We are living in especially pivotal times that will determine the course of the future.
One of the most challenging, wide-ranging, truly radical and controversial thinkers in this movement and moment is E Michael Jones, a magazine editor, lecturer, and writer, and has been a leading social critic for over two decades. He has written over a dozen books, including "Degenerate Moderns, Monsters From the Id," and "The Slaughter of Cities".
E Michael Jones is an unusual, independent thinker, firmly in the Catholic tradition, in intellectual rebellion against seemingly the entirety of the modern world.
His interests and knowledge are incredibly wide-ranging, from history, to economics, to global politics, to theology, to sociology.
He is extremely challenging, fearless, bold, committed, and controversial.
I am so glad to have him on this podcast.
