Here’s a brief start to showing the type of things he will be sharing in his programs.
1. One Planet, Two Worlds: What Lies Behind the Mindset of Nations
According to Aristotle, a government always reflects the ethos or body of moral habits and beliefs of the governed. The view of life that prevails at any particular time or among any particular people will be found to be either Collectivist (originated in Jean Jacques Rousseau’s Man-Is-Born-Good philosophy) or Individualist (originated in the Judeo-Christian Man-Is-Born-In-Sin morality). From the dawn of human history on earth up to the end of Feudalism, humanity was grounded on a steady, hierarchic type of worldview. The advents of the Protestant Reformation and the Renaissance, with their focus on the emancipation of the individual rather than in the collective destiny of mankind, brought about the three revolutions (British, American, French) that clearly separated the globe into two diametrically opposed mindsets, which still loudly reverberate today in our post-modern world, especially concerning the creation and application of public policies.
2. An Honest, Bible-Centered Look at Immigration in the US
As our founding father John Adams affirmed, faith-based principles inform a whole lot of America’s politics and public policies. In this lecture we show that every type of national government in the world has specific principles based on their worldviews. The immigration challenge was completely dealt with by America’s founding since the inception of the nation, until the 1965 Nationality and Immigration Act, when immigration was turned upside down. America waved farewell to its historic and traditional constitutional morality and patriotic assimilation features, and embraced the post-America, or trans-national approach, basically inspired by a dangerous activism aimed at blurring and finally eliminating the line between citizens and non-citizens, grounded mainly on the buzz words of post-modernity, empathy, compassion, social justice. We highlight that beyond the cruel economic impacts for native Americans, the greatest danger is the change of the idea behind America’s identity.
