John Stonestreet and Shane Morris reflect on the nineteenth anniversary of 9/11. How has 9/11 shaped a generation's cultural memory? And what events are shaping the cultural memory of today's younger generations--and what effect will that have on the culture itself?
Also in this episode: Dinsey's cozy relationship with the genocidal Chinese Communist government; is it really possible that people will fall for the idea that looting is not only permissible, but liberating for the oppressed?; thoughts on critical race theory, and the culture's schizophrenia when it comes to on the one hand condemning the sexualization of children while at the same time creating cultural artifacts--films, novels, etc.--that glorify the sexualization of children.
They wrap up the show with their recommendations for the week: Shane's praise for the Christian folk duo Gray Havens; John on Katy Faust's upcoming book Them Before Us: Why We Need a Global Children's Rights Movmement.
