    Conner Habib, on Progressives Disconnect From Spirituality

    If the truth ever be known, probably the biggest conspiracy in world history was the European aristocratic reaction to the spread of American-style democracy - the Theory of Evolution (no, I am not religious). The American system was, in part, more successful than others because an allowance...

    Conner Habib, on Progressives Disconnect From Spirituality

    Also for Eric Newhill: Pardon me for interrupting a good argument while the feathers are still flying, but I wonder if you recognize points that you have in agreement? Curiously, you both seem to see yourselves as victims of the same Capitalist system, whether through paying too much taxes; or...

    Ed Opperman, Trump, Epstein, Why Beliefs Don’t Change

    "neo-puritans/neo-Marxist" It really is a secular religion. This is because it is easy to exploit the separation of church and state in the media. The church is excluded from ever defending itself in the secular forum, and can easily be portrayed in any derogatory manner. This despite the fact...

    Ed Opperman, Trump, Epstein, Why Beliefs Don’t Change

    Most conspiracy theorists that I’ve followed tend to drift more and more into high contrast-black and white thinking as they progress down their particular rabbit hole. In real life, good and evil is seldom so clearly defined and absolute. Yet every expedition down the rabbit hole starts to...

    Ed Opperman, Trump, Epstein, Why Beliefs Don’t Change

    It's not a conspiracy theory if it's true. This is from an article by Adolph L. Reed Jr. which for me, was a real eye-opener. If the professor was white, he would certainly be labeled as "Racist": "As the argument has progressed, a de facto alliance between ostensibly progressive identitarians...

    Ed Opperman, Trump, Epstein, Why Beliefs Don’t Change

    The MSM narrative is broken. The media is on a desperate search to find the evidence that fits its narrative of socially approved – dare I say it Politically Correct – conspiracy theories, like “Sexism” the conspiracy of an entire gender to actively dominate another; or “Racism”, the similar...

    Ed Opperman, Trump, Epstein, Why Beliefs Don’t Change

    I’ve noticed that while other races self-segregate by ethnicity, or religion, Indo-Europeans have historically segregated by social class, such as the Indian caste system and the British class system of the 19th century. I don’t know if many are familiar with 19th century British history, but I...

    I dust off my copy of Lao Tzu to find that such intangibles were traditionally measured by their opposites, or by what they were not i.e. pain by pleasure; joy by sadness; good by evil, etc. I believe this was also the case throughout most of Eurasia prior to monotheism, which introduced our...

    Ed Opperman, Trump, Epstein, Why Beliefs Don’t Change

    I would say that the differences between our liberal and conservative politicos have been non-existent, since most believe in something that has gone by several different names over time. I'm thinking Social Darwinism, Capitalism; sometimes Free Trade and Globalism. Certainly no one of them has...

    Hamlet said, "Nothing either good or bad, but thinking makes it so" Who knew better than Shakespeare? First I heard of that term "ignostic", thanks for that. I'm ignostic, too.

    Ed Opperman, Trump, Epstein, Why Beliefs Don’t Change

    What is objective and rational is any opinion that I agree with. What is subjective and emotional is any opinion that I disagree with. In actual reality, any "objectivity" must be postulated from a subjective point of view (there is no purely objective point of view). Similarly, both what is...

    Ed Opperman, Trump, Epstein, Why Beliefs Don’t Change

    "so leaving aside what "Satan" means and what "evil" means a good first step is to at least be able to identify what is happening." Not to belabor the point, but what is required is an examination of the premises through which we view all the evidence before we rush down a rabbit hole looking...

    Ed Opperman, Trump, Epstein, Why Beliefs Don’t Change

    I love Ed Opperman (qualifiers: platonic ally...from afar); I have listened to Ed since his first appearance on C2C. He and Alex have a quality that is rare in radio-podcast-type hosts: a truly relentless interest in the subject at hand. That being said, it is also true that Ed will take...
