BHoP#061 The Religion of Lost Time

Dr Koontz and Rev Fisk open with a short discussion of video games simulating life without the meaning and wasting time that could be spent on real things, and then continue the discussion of the Spanish Civil War, talking about the interference of outside forces and the importance of creating ties with people in other places. Finally, they talk about the experience of Eric Blair (better known as George Orwell) in the Spanish Civil War and his books written not against the left, but against authoritarianism.

Books recommended: Mine Were of Trouble by Peter Kemp, and The Modern Survival Manual: Surviving the Economic Collapse by Fernando "Ferfal" Aguirre.

A Brief History of Power

Every week Dr. Adam Koontz and Rev. Jonathan Fisk check their privilege against the backdrop of the wide and varied annals of history. You don‘t have to believe the Babel about the sons of Noah being a rosetta for understanding the postmodern global politic to agree that an intellectual dark web exists because history always rhymes, no matter what you try to do about it. You might not save the world by listening, citizen, but that doesn‘t mean you won‘t save someone. Because knowing is only the first half of the battle.
