    Propaganda - The Bane of Society

    Propaganda: the impact it has on society and our ability to think freely and make individual decisions. It’s vital first to understand where propaganda comes from and whose agenda it ultimately serves. Unfortunately, many people today have an antiquated perspective of propaganda and are not conscious of the many ways it is being used against them. That’s why people must become aware of the signs that propaganda is being used and impacting them, their loved ones, and the world at large.

    Freedom of Speech?

    Freedom of Speech?

    The (All) Unknowing Podcast with Daniel Curtis
    Daniel and Peter discuss five reasons freedom of speech is the most critical component of governmental structure and the fundamental rights it should guarantee every citizen without fear of retribution or censorship. Historically, these rights have played a vital role in the fight for civil rights and social change in the United States. However, freedom of speech has limitations, and in recent years these limits have been widely debated. Now is a critical time to stand up and resolve the surmounting issues surrounding freedom of speech before future generations are ill-prepared to deal with the repercussions. 
     
    Tune in as Daniel and Peter discuss:
    ·        Why freedom of speech is one of the top 3 problems that society faces right now.
    ·        What happens when people lose sight of what true free speech enables.
    ·        How the great civilizations of the world have cut themselves off by adopting an antagonist attitude towards freedom of speech.
    ·        Why Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. is a real and fundamental example of how to effectively stand for social change and engineer a revolution through the power of speech.
    ·        How “cancel culture” and the private entities funding it have eroded First Amendment rights.
    ·        Why the concept of a “utopian” society is an unrealistic ideology and a danger to freedom of speech.
    ·        How corporate speech policies impact citizens’ ability to earn a living.
    ·        Why freedom of speech is essential to a functioning democratic process.
    ·        How Freedom of Speech allows the exchange of ideas and the free flow of information academically, culturally, and among businesses.
    ·        Effective methods for resolving conflicts related to unpopular views and opinions amongst university staff, students, and the public.

    Does Cancelled Have One (L) or Two? - Part 2

    Does Cancelled Have One (L) or Two? - Part 2

    The (All) Unknowing Podcast with Daniel Curtis – Cancel Culture Part 2
    Daniel continues his discussion on “cancel culture” with Peter by exploring how to counteract many of the negative effects that “cancel culture” has had on how people are treated, how we think, and how we converse with one another in our society. For years, “cancel culture” has aided in quelling free speech and ostracizing individuals and groups who have alternative opinions and beliefs. Teaching the next generation how to think objectively and have disagreements without persecuting others is vital to social stability, at present or in the future.
     
    Tune in as Daniel and Peter discuss:
    What should be done to people and groups who have extreme social and political viewpoints instead of canceling themHow canceling people with extreme views and opinions hinders them from being able to change their ways and have a positive impact on societyWhy “cancel culture” fails to empower critical and objective thinkingHow the echo chamber effect in our society influences public policyWhy “cancel culture” is a disdain on the tapestry of societyWhy more forums to have conversations about issues that are impacting our nation are neededThe root issue that has caused “cancel culture” to metastasis into a type of cancer within our societyThe danger of emotional extremism and why it needs to be addressed

    Does Cancelled Have One (L) or Two? - Part 1

    Does Cancelled Have One (L) or Two? - Part 1

    As “cancel culture” continues to trend, many leaders are championing it and missing the opportunity to create a more unified society. This leads to an increase in division and dissension among citizens and has the potential to result in catastrophic consequences. As a society, we are in need of social reform and must return to true freedom of speech to bring about lasting change. 
    Tune in as Daniel and Peter discuss:
    Why the trend of deconstructing ideas and attacking aspects of culture fails to create a more multi-culturally understanding societyWhat poor leadership at every level is a symptom of within our societyHow the tendency to dismiss and discriminate against the working class feeds into the divisiveness and tribalism in society.The two things that create an extreme sense of entitlement associated with the “cancel culture” ideologyHow tribalism, manipulation, and propaganda create a society that is vulnerable to uprisings and increased violenceHow ignoring reality and objective truths produce the negativity of “cancel culture” Support the show

An important voice for free speech

I am a new subsciber to this podcast and I was interested in the 'Freedom of Speech'. This is a very good, non-partisan podcast that provided great insights about the value of free speech. It deftly explores the implications of what various, "unreasonable-sounding" restrictions might be and why all people ultimately benefit from the freest market of ideas we can establish. A perfect example of MLking summed up the great content in this pod!

Phenomenal

Where have I been? This podcast is relatively new but I must say it's phenomenal! I recommended it to my wife and will do to my friends and family members. Great hosts and such relevant topics. It cuts across education, politics and what we face in our everyday world. I must add it's also motivating. I can't say enough good things about this podcast. Do yourself a favor and give it a listen.
