Welcome to The Causes of Things, a podcast from Sovereign Nations. The 1st century BC poet Virgil stated, “Blessed is he who understands the hidden causes of things.” This statement is as brilliant today as it was 2,000 years ago.

Primarily narrated by Michael O'Fallon, The Causes of Things is didactic in nature featuring a collection of teaching series & lectures, some of which are recorded specifically for this podcast, and some that are from public lectures. The show will offer discussion and information concerning a variety of complex ideas: The philosophical presuppositions behind the ideas that are aggressively shaping our world, the answers to those challenging ideas, and the necessary historical, hierarchical structure of the world as represented through the lens of Judeo Christian belief.

    A Threat to China | Public Occurrences, Ep. 28 | September 21, 2021

    Since the election of Joe Biden, China has enjoyed a springtime of growth and dominance in the world market. China has become aggressive in supplanting the United States as the dominant geopolitical partner in the Middle East, Africa, Europe and even South America.

    But there is a threat that has come to China: a threat that is well known to Americans and Europeans. And the threat that is coming may be too much for China to overcome.

    A Multi-Front Battle | Public Occurrences, Ep. 27 | September 20, 2021

    A Multi-Front Battle | Public Occurrences, Ep. 27 | September 20, 2021

    There are serious challenges coming to every facet of our civilization and into what has been our consciously chosen affinity groups. By this I mean that we choose those that we associate with confessionally in our faith, we strive upward with those in our chosen profession and our chosen industry, and we work with those who we are aligned with politically.

    The primary problem with conservatives is what in normal circumstances makes us excel : our competitive nature to be on top: our being opportunistic or our striving to come out on top. In an engaged ideological and civilizational war, this individual striving must be channeled to create a solid, impenetrable barrier against our adversary -- who will use our natural inclination to personally silo against us.

    Personally, I have been primarily been fighting the ideological and political battle in three different fronts:

    Faith
    Politics
    Corporate Travel and Transportation

    In each one of these “fronts” the same issue has plagued the ability for conservatives to win: tribalism and the lack of willingness to work together as one cohesive unit.

    The Subtle Slide | Public Occurrences, Ep. 26 | September 10, 2021

    The Subtle Slide | Public Occurrences, Ep. 26 | September 10, 2021

    How do previously free people and democracies slide into tyranny and totalitarianism?

    In almost every situation there is no one large event that is the fulcrum moment that the momentum swings but instead there are many precipitating events that gradually move a nation further and further to tyranny.

    In describing the night of Kristallnicacht in Nazi Germany, Historian and Holocaust survivor Prof. Zvi Bacharach, who was ten years old when the events of Kristallnacht unfolded, stated the following:

    “That was the heart of the problem of German Jewry: It was so much a part of German society that the Nazi blow hit it from within. Until 1938 my parents never thought of leaving Germany. ‘There's no way the Germans we live with will continue to do these things. It's only an episode.’ That was the atmosphere. It was also the atmosphere on Kristallnacht. They couldn't comprehend it. It came as a blow. I remember my mother standing pale and crying… I remember her phoning her gentile friends – she had more gentile friends than Jewish friends – No answer. No one answered her.”

    Even though the signs and warnings of eventual totalitarianism and persecution are present, it can be difficult to see and understand the reality of the threat.

    Fauci's Fertile Fallacy | Public Occurrences, Ep. 25 | September 9. 2021

    Fauci's Fertile Fallacy | Public Occurrences, Ep. 25 | September 9. 2021

    It was just revealed that in a recent exchange with Senator Rand Paul, Dr. Anthony Fauci lied before congress and misrepresented his activity with the Wuhan Institute of Virology.

    According to Rutgers University chemical biology professor Richard Ebright,

    "The documents make it clear that assertions by the NIH Director, Francis Collins, and the NIAID Director, Anthony Fauci, that the NIH did not support gain-of-function research or potential pandemic pathogen enhancement at WIV are untruthful."

    So it has been proven that Dr. Fauci and others at our highest-level national medical institutions have not been forthright in discussions regarding the origins and development of Covid-19.

    Michael O’Fallon discusses the current developments and asserts that this entire saga of the last 18 months has been a gigantic fertile fallacy.

    Becoming China | Public Occurrences, Ep. 24 | September 8, 2021

    Becoming China | Public Occurrences, Ep. 24 | September 8, 2021

    There has been a transformation that you may have noticed that is happening all over the world in nations that would have previously been associated with being liberal democracies and constitutional republics: they are transitioning into the authoritarian, national socialist, technocratic model.

    The model that so many nations seem to be imitating is that of the Communist Chinese Government. Strict control of freedom of movement and transportation, the elimination of “non-essential” businesses, the ever-present surveillance state, the censorship of freedom of expression - all hallmarks of authoritarian totalitarian control.

    Populations of formerly free nations must realize that the moment is now to use every opportunity available in our old systems to prevent the new technocratic systems from taking control.

    Hegel's Alchemy of Science | James Lindsay & Michael O'Fallon | Changing Tides, Ep. 7

    Hegel's Alchemy of Science | James Lindsay & Michael O'Fallon | Changing Tides, Ep. 7

    In our final discussion of the Changing Tides video series, Michael O’Fallon and James Lindsay discuss the alchemic properties of Hegel’s understanding of science. His view of science isn’t what most of us consider science. Hegel’s view of science is self-referential, more like a “theoretical lens” (or eisegesis) than a skeptical and empirical inquiry into the nature of reality. In other words, for Hegel and his ideological descendants, Theory comes first and evidence after.

    Though it seems removed from the ideas of today, Hegel’s view of science inspired other “scientific” views down through the modern era, most importantly that of Karl Marx. Marx believed he had a Science of HIstory in his Wissenschaftlicher Sozialismus, “scientific socialism.” He couldn’t have been more wrong. Thinking that his model was truly scientific, however, had a great deal to do with Hegel’s notion of science in which his own speculative idealism, taken as a systematic philosophy, generates the one correct way to understand the world and ourselves within it.

    Join us for this short discussion in which Dr. Lindsay peels back Hegel’s metaphysical open door to technocracy through an alchemy derived form of “scientism,” which leaps past the process of falsification and focuses on a pre-envisioned form of operational success.
