Episode 3 | Antifa: Freedom Fighters or Domestic Terrorists?
The bloated Administrative State we have today scarcely resembles the coalition of public servants established during the Progressive Era. Though President Trump has taken definitive steps to rein in this “Fourth Branch of Government,” it remains wide-ranging. This federal bureaucracy continues to employ millions of Americans and cost the public billions of dollars each and every year, both in the form of salaries and regulations. The origin, nature, and impact of the Administrative State and numerous federal departments are thoroughly explored in this episode of The Ned Ryun Podcast.
In the midst of social unrest in recent weeks, a debate has raged in the United States over the role of the police. Many activists have called for police departments to be defunded or abolished entirely. Cities such as Minneapolis, Los Angeles, and New York have taken major steps to either defund or abolish their respective police departments. The notion of systemic racism and violence within police forces has been constantly repeated in the national discourse. This discussion raises several important questions: Do Americans favor defunding or abolishing the police? Is racism prevalent in police departments throughout the United States? What are the most reasonable reforms to police departments that can be pursued? These questions, and others, are thoroughly discussed in this episode of The Ned Ryun Podcast.
Over the past several years, Tech Companies such as Facebook, Twitter, and Google have come under fire for censoring and removing numerous conservative voices from their platforms. As these instances of censorship accelerate with the 2020 election cycle approaching, several questions are frequently being asked: Do these Tech Companies have the legal ability to censor dissenting voices? What legal actions can be taken to reign in this censorship? What will the future of free speech look like if conservatives are entirely purged from the public square of social media? These questions, and others, are explored in this episode of The Ned Ryun Podcast.
Over the past several weeks, the United States has been subjected to the most profound social unrest in at least a generation. In many cases, protests have deteriorated into rioting, looting, and widespread violence. Both President Trump and Attorney General Barr have placed the blame for this destruction on Antifa, a far-left paramilitary group that uses violence to fight against forces it deems fascist. While supporters of Antifa claim that these actions are necessary to defeat fascism, detractors argue that such actions are counterintuitive and that the group’s far-left ideology motivates its members to view all political dissidents as fascist. The answer to this problem is provided in this podcast through an extensive review of the origins, messaging, and recent actions of Antifa.
Ever since the tragic killing of George Floyd, the Black Lives Matter movement has seen an historically unprecedented surge in popularity. At face value, the movement seems like a noble cause to the average citizen. However, the organization that spawned this movement is an entirely separate matter. Many wonder if the organization is a noble cause that simply seeks to achieve Black equality or is instead a radical leftist organization that seeks to fundamentally transform the United States. This episode of The Ned Ryun Podcast gives a thorough review of the history, funding, and goals of Black Lives Matter to help one arrive at the answer.
The Coronavirus is the most significant pandemic in over a century. Not only has it infected millions of people and killed hundreds of thousands of people throughout the globe, but it has spawned shutdowns of large swaths of the global economy. In the midst of the severe economic fallout from these shutdowns, one must ask the following questions: does the Coronavirus pose a large enough threat to warrant these shutdowns? Will these shutdowns cause more harm to more people than the Coronavirus itself? These questions, and others, are thoroughly explored in this episode of The Ned Ryun Podcast.
