Listen to: Atheism: The Religion of Fools - Dr. D. James Kennedy (Truths That Transform)
The government continues to expand into every facet of life, and a major presidential candidate, who is an avowed socialist, has actually won delegates. What has led to this new acceptance of socialism? Ignorance of its history and record is certainly part of it. But its cheerleaders in the media have played a significant role as well. We interview Brent Bozell of the Media Research Center on that issue, Dr. D. James Kennedy explains the bankruptcy of socialism, and we take a firsthand look at how socialistic policies have devastated what was once one of America's greatest cities.
For the first time ever, a self-avowed socialist has won delegates for a major party’s nomination. Many Americans clearly do not understand the danger posed by socialism, which is on the upswing in America. On this program, we hear from William J. Murray, whose mother, the noted atheist Madalyn Murray O'Hair, tried to move the family to the Soviet Union, only to be told she would do "the revolution" more good in America. Based on an atheistic, Marxist worldview (though many falsely attribute socialistic notions to Christianity), socialism does harm to the so-called beneficiaries of its largesse. We examine a Maine program that succeeded in getting people out of dependence on government and into the workforce.
For decades, the word “socialism” has been a dirty word in American politics—and rightly so. To successfully identify a program or idea with socialism was to effectively kill it. But in recent years, that’s all changed. Though it might have been unthinkable just ten or twenty years ago, acceptance of socialism is on the rise in America. On this special program, we speak with a number of experts who unfold the history and goals of socialism--and sound the much-needed warning for how its current ascendancy in America poses a danger to us all.
