Are Ideologies Dangerous?

Are Ideologies Dangerous?

This week's episode is with Tom Morris, my friend and favorite philosopher. During our chat, we explored the origin of ideologies, their importance, their dangers, and how we as a culture need to better understand what they are doing to us. We talked about Gilgamesh, Tolstoy, Aristotle, and Kung Fu on a New York City subway. Oh, and we came up with a few ideas on how we can all start to get along a bit better. I hope you enjoy his wisdom as much as I did.

In This Episode:

  • Ideology and its root

  • Andy Norman and religion

  • Educating the public

  • Democracy today

  • Safe Spaces

  • Critical Race Theory & Robin DeAngelo

  • Tribalism

  • Philosophers of today

  • Media’s continued role in today’s narrative

Each show is investigated with a focus on narrative as well as discovery. We believe that the complexity of culture cannot be crammed into six-minute television segments, or snippets and memes on social media, where ideology and entertainment is now the priority.
On the program, you’ll hear the opinions of subject matter experts who'll explore the tangled topics of our day. Our collective goal is to help people better understand one another, not win a battle. After listening, you'll be reminded that a proper debate is not about victory, but that of inquiry, education, and viewpoint diversity. So tune in and talk amongst yourselves. You may even learn a thing or two.
