A Neighbor’s Choice radio show and THINGS HIDDEN podcast are the two main audio programs of David Gornoski. THINGS HIDDEN is a deep-dive podcast into the world of mythology and current events guided by the Mimetic theory of Rene Girard and grounded in the personhood revolution of Jesus. Hosted by David Gornoski, A Neighbor’s Choice Radio examines the role of violence and religion in society. From victims of state violence against nonviolent behaviors to public figures and contrarian voices, the conversations that unfold create an illuminating and surreal journey for listeners.
Kerry Baldwin, writer and founder of MereLiberty.com, joins David Gornoski to discuss the medical tyranny of using coercion during this pandemic. Are we handing over far too much to the government? Kerry points out how governments have always used crises to gain control over their people. Is it ethical to mandate wearing masks in high-density population areas such as New York? Kerry argues that the use of coercion actually deters people from taking voluntary action in caring for their neighbors. Is homeschooling a valid alternative for those under lockdowns? Can we understand the left’s symbolic obsession with Donald Trump? How do we break free from the politicization and polarization in our society? Listen to the full podcast to find out and more.
