Dr Koontz and Rev Fisk continue discussing the Okies and the history of agriculture in California, the invention of agribusiness, what sets the Yankees apart from the rest of America and why immigrant groups are more interested in themselves than the general population, why intellectual causes always fracture, national vs global framing, the need for personal knowledge to change minds, and the migrant populations that work California farms.
hat makes land fragile or resilient, the history of land rushes and the dustbowl, who the Okies are and why their example matters, and why everyone is now a migrant.
Dr Koontz and Rev Fisk continue last week’s discussion about the overturning of Roe. They talk about the effects of the Left’s ideas on today’s children, the increased need to seek alliances with other Christians, America’s modern culture of death and its contrast with Mexico, why Satan hates children, and employing centuries-long thinking.
Dr Koontz and Rev Fisk talk about the overturning of Roe: the arguments used, the division of the court on fundamental questions, other decisions that depend on similar reasoning as Roe did, legislation by court ruling, the need for good men as well as good words in governance, the reaction of the Left, and what this means for the future.
