We are being told that the Tyre Nichols case is driven by white supremacy and that the Fair Tax proposal will destroy the poor. We are also being exposed to a sort of cultural Munchausen's Syndrome by Proxy. All of it is using fear as tool for manipulation.

Episode 34: I'm Not a Biologist
Progressivism would have us believe that the word “woman” cannot be defined, that young children need to be exposed to deviant sexual ideology, and that when a black man slaps another black man, somehow that is white people’s fault.  Support the Show.Order Leonydus's new book, Raising Victims: The Pernicious Rise of Critical Race TheoryOrder Now

Episode 32: Lady Vengeance
The trial of Kyle Rittenhouse has shown us, once again, that the progressive left does not want anything to do with justice. They will disregard all evidence, throw away due process, and proclaim a presumption of guilt in order to punish those who oppose their ideology. It's about power and control. They don't want justice. They want vengeance. Support the Show.Order Leonydus's new book, Raising Victims: The Pernicious Rise of Critical Race TheoryOrder Now

Episode 31 - Enough
We are in an abusive relationship with our own government. Everything they say and do is done by utilizing abusive tactics in order to exert power and control over us. But we are not royal subjects. We do not have kings or queens. We need to recognize that the line has been crossed and that it's time for Americans to say...enough. Support the Show.Order Leonydus's new book, Raising Victims: The Pernicious Rise of Critical Race TheoryOrder Now

Episode 30 - Ordinary Men
All throughout history, great evil has been committed by people who believed themselves to be righteous and morally justified.

Episode 29 - Identity Crisis
Our country is dealing with a profound identity crisis. This has been exemplified during both the COVID madness and the disaster in Afghanistan. It is difficult to even recognize America anymore. We have seemingly forgotten who we are as we stray further and further from the ideals that founded this nation and the ideals that truly make this country exceptional. Support the Show.Order Leonydus's new book, Raising Victims: The Pernicious Rise of Critical Race TheoryOrder Now

Episode 28 - Trust the Mind Virus
There is a highly infectious mind virus spreading throughout our society that is more dangerous and destructive than COVID. It causes reality distortion, emotional imbalance, and irrational fear and it threatens to tear our country apart. We must inoculate ourselves against it and stop the spread. Support the Show.Order Leonydus's new book, Raising Victims: The Pernicious Rise of Critical Race TheoryOrder Now

Episode 27 - Up From Slavery
Freedom, self-control, manhood, work ethic, personal responsibility, education, culture, unity. These ideas exemplify the autobiography of Booker T. Washington and they remind us how much we have gained and how much we have to lose.

Episode 26 - Living in the Past
Perpetual anger and resentment, clinging to past grievances, vengefulness, hostility, lack of perspective, lack of gratitude - living in the past is not healthy behavior for an individual and it is not healthy behavior for a society. It's time to let the past go, embrace the blessings of the present, and look to the future. Support the Show.Order Leonydus's new book, Raising Victims: The Pernicious Rise of Critical Race TheoryOrder Now

Episode 25 - Truth and Honesty
At some point, we have to draw a line in the sand. We have to embrace honesty and stand up for truth, even  when it's hard, especially when it's hard, even if we're only ones doing it. And even if it ultimately costs us something.  Otherwise, the consequences will be devastating. Support the Show.Order Leonydus's new book, Raising Victims: The Pernicious Rise of Critical Race TheoryOrder Now

Episode 24: Lies and Manipulation
The people in power don't want peace and unity. They want division and chaos. Between George Floyd, Daunte Wright, Adam Toledo, Ma'Khia Bryant, and a host of others whose deaths have been exploited and used to manipulate, it is clear that these people want to cause as much destruction as possible. Support the Show.Order Leonydus's new book, Raising Victims: The Pernicious Rise of Critical Race TheoryOrder Now

Episode 23: Emptying the Ocean
We are living through a time period that is the antithesis of The Enlightenment.  Every day, our society devolves a little bit more into degeneracy and chaos. The poison is pervasive and it continues to spread.  And for the people who see what's happening and are trying to stop it, it often feels like trying to empty the ocean with a ladle. Support the Show.Order Leonydus's new book, Raising Victims: The Pernicious Rise of Critical Race TheoryOrder Now

Math is racist, standardized testing is racist, Dr. Seuss, the Bachelor, even babies are racist. The toxic fixation on race is pernicious and it needs to be stopped.

Episode 20: Welcome to Wonderland
We are being dragged down the rabbit hole of leftism, being bombarded with lie after lie, absurdity after absurdity, and it almost seems to be the point. The point isn't to uncover the truth. The point is to force capitulation. To force complete submission, so much so that you are even willing to obediently accept and affirm a reality that you know doesn't exist.

Episode 19: Losing Our Minds
Celebrating the deaths of political opponents, firing people and trying to destroy them for their political beliefs, ignoring concentration camps and human rights abuses in China,  rejecting objectivity, attacking people for their race and teaching children that they are either victims or oppressors based on their skin color -- wokism is a mental illness.

From education, abortion, human trafficking, gender issues, inner-city violence, the pandemic response, there are a lot of different problems that affect children that need to be addressed.

Episode 16: Economics
When it comes to economics, it is important to remember that good intentions cannot change the fact that all resources are scarce and that there are no real solutions, only trade-offs. The government is abysmal at understanding this. As always, the answer to how best approach these decisions and how to achieve the best outcomes is to prioritize and promote individual liberty. Support the Show.Order Leonydus's new book, Raising Victims: The Pernicious Rise of Critical Race TheoryOrder Now

Education is one of the most important concepts that we need to address and a good education is vital for a healthy society. And the best way to achieve this is through free-market principles, i.e. competition and giving parents and students the freedom to choose. Support the Show.Order Leonydus's new book, Raising Victims: The Pernicious Rise of Critical Race TheoryOrder Now
