‘The Great Fear and the Great Faith’ (Chalcedon Podcast)

Why a Strong Network Foundation Is Needed to Support Emerging Tech | BizTech Magazine

Can anyone deny that the time we’re living in today is burdened with its own Great Fear? COVID, Climate Change, Systemic Racism–oh, woe, we’re all gonna die! Unless, of course, we give the government more power. And lots and lots more money.

But what is the answer, the antidote, to the Great Fear? Can it be shut off before it leads to a reign of terror?

Mark Rushdoony, Martin Selbrede, and Andrea Schwartz–my honored colleagues at Chalcedon–discuss that in this recent podcast:

It’s about an hour long.

The wicked and the ungodly are running wild today–and they are feeding off the Great Fear that they themselves have sown!

Asks Psalm 11, “If the foundations be destroyed, what can the righteous do?”

Our answer: “Build Biblical foundations, founded on God’s word; and these will not be destroyed.”

Here’s My Podcast: ‘Does Technology Make Us Smarter?’

(Hint: No. Absolutely not.)

Here’s the interview I did with Andrea Schwartz for her “Out of the Question” series. We’re talking about The Dumbest Generation by Mark Bauerlein.

Let’s face it: public education has always been a loser. “One size fits all” just doesn’t work for humans or any other living things. But now, with the social media and smartphones and stupidphones added to the mix, it’s worse than ever. By several orders of magnitude.

So we’re talking it over, and here it is for your edification and enjoyment.

I have ideal voice for print, don’t I?

My Newswithviews Column, April 5 (‘We Need a Disney Princess Who’ll Go Jump in a Lake’)

Somehow even just contemplating Disney princesses makes me feel like I have to carry a lot of real heavy stuff up a long flight of stairs on a very hot day.

Does it seem to you, as it seems to me, that leftid loons are getting bolder about telling us who they really are? What makes them confident enough to do that?

College Idiot Factories Wage Jihad against ‘Toxic Masculinity’

Okay, leftids, you’ve convinced me: you really are the servants of Satan. What you say and do can be explained in no other way.

Ithaca, Duke, Oregon State, Brown, Amherst, University of Massachusetts–these are just some of the “universities” this week who will be holding workshops and B.S. sessions on “toxic masculinity” ( https://www.campusreform.org/?ID=8645 ).

At Brown the workshops will be “for students who identify as men.” At Oregon State, students will “engage in collective imagining.” There is a slang term for the latter which I am not permitted to use on this blog. Ithaca is gunning for “hegemonic masculinity.” I could go on, but I seem to have run out of barf bags.

I’ve said it before, I’ll say it again: People who love and respect their sons and daughters do not send them to these colleges to be turned into brainless wastes of space. To which I am moved to add: People who love and respect their country do not send their sons and daughters to these colleges to be turned into brainless wastes of space.

We see by all this frenzied activity that Satan has a real problem with God’s created order, and has moved his servants to strike at its very foundation: “Male and female created He them.” They want to get rid of the male part.

God will eventually remove this whole business from the picture. It would be a shame to us, if we ever had to look back and saw that we, when we had the opportunity, and the duty, failed to speak and act against it.

O Lord Our God–remember, please remember, that these things are done without our consent, against our will, and over our objections.

Here’s the Webinar! ‘Thoughts on Being a Writer’

Wow, here it is already–the “webinar” I did just the other day, organized, moderated, and edited by Andrea Schwartz, my esteemed colleague at The Chalcedon Foundation. She is amazingly efficient.

So here it is, if you can stand listening to my voice for 55 minutes (I’m not sure I can). (  https://thekingdomdrivenfamily.com/2016/10/26/thoughts-on-being-a-writer-webinar-discussion-with-lee-duigon/ )

It was a lot of fun being questioned by people who had actually read my books: in fact, it was the first time that’s happened. I hope the advice I gave these kids and teens was good advice.

My Interview (Maybe)

http://www.blogtalkradio.com/by-the-fireplace/2016/03/10/interview-with-author-lee-duigon

If this link works, you’ll be able to listen to my interview with Grant Warren on By the Fireplace.

If it doesn’t–well, I never said I know what I’m doing when it comes to computers.

Maybe I’ll let my cats try it.

P.S.–How do you like that? It worked!

Figure This–If You Can

Ice on the Great Lakes–produced by Global Warming???

The shipping industry wants Congress to pony up the money for a new icebreaker for the Great Lakes. Why? Because “back-to-back winters of historic ice cover have demonstrated the need for a new heavy breaker” ( http://www.mlive.com/news/grand-rapids/index.ssf/2015/08/peters_great_lakes_icebreaker.html ). Last winter ice covered 89% of the Great Lakes’ surface. In 2014, it was 92%.

Meanwhile, all the shysters in Washington and in the E.U. keep on yammering about Global Warming, you’re all gonna die unless you pay lotsa new taxes and give us vast new powers, blah-blah.

Why do we need to build new icebreakers if the Planet is supposedly getting warmer all the time?

Meanwhile, in Scotland, there’s all this snow lying around, left over from last winter–it hasn’t melted yet (  https://inpursuitofhappiness.wordpress.com/2015/08/16/scotlands-winter-snow-still-hasnt-melted/ ). At the same time, the whoopee crowd tells us that redheads are going to go extinct on account of Global Warming.

We understand why politicians are pushing Global Warming: more power and more money. And scientists: more grant money, and the fun of being advisers and oracles to the politicians.  But why any normal person would believe in it, how any normal person could fail to see the colossally dishonest motives behind it all… well, that we find very hard to understand.

The Harry Potter Rage Continues

The Worldviews of Fantasy

The present generation was raised on Harry Potter. It is the most popular book series and most popular movie series of all time, exceeding the box office receipts of Star Wars and Avatar! But what shall we say of this Dark Tale? The good guys are homosexuals and witches. And the bad guys definitely look uglier than the good guys. We’ve come a long way from the Bobbsey Twins. Not many kids raised on the Bobbsey Twins became interested in Necromancy, Human Sacrifice, and Homosexuality. The next twenty years are going to be. . . different, shall we say? Kevin Swanson interviews Christian fantasy author, Lee Duigon on the basic differences between corrupting man-centered witchcraft and God-centered story-telling.
