Ep. 206 — Are Americans Okay with Losing Freedom? | PragerU

Ep. 206 — Are Americans Okay with Losing Freedom? | PragerU | INTELLIGENT WORLD TODAY | Scoop.it
In this week’s episode, Dennis worries about Americans losing their freedom… and their common sense. He also poses a challenging question: what happens when…
Al Cannistra's insight:

Your views on this topic are likely impacted by your age (living the previous century) and/or your knowledge of the human experience of that century. History does repeat – learning from it can help avoid repeating the same mistakes; erasing history almost assures misjudgments will be repeated. IMO – the world is headed for the latter.

.

Perhaps it is destiny. Civilizations come to an end. The Republic may be nearing its end. Yet, there remains the possibility of reversing the impending wreck with an open mind looking forward – and back. It also requires the courage to speak out and educate.
