Guest Post: Bill Chapman – Smells Like Teen Brains

Hogg

Margaret Mead, a famous anthropologist once said “Children should be taught how to think, not what to think.” In the 1930s, Adolf Hitler utilized the young people of Germany as propaganda puppets in order to communicate his vision for Germany. These young people were part of a group called “Hitler Youth.” This group of young people ages 13-18, were part of a master plan concocted by an evil dictator to capture the hearts and minds of a country through an indoctrination plan. The plan consisted of subverting the political discourse of the day with messages and demonstrations that supported the Nazi regime and its viewpoints.  Hitler believed that the key to the longevity of the Nazi movement was convincing a generation of young people that they were being patriotic by advancing these ideas of Nazi dominance and the need to exterminate lesser populations. Hitler believed that by using young people as the ministers for this warped theology as time moved forward, there would be a lasting impact on society as a whole.

Fast forward to current day America. A mass shooting happens in a school in south Florida. The media is quick to amplify the voices of a select group of teenagers involved above and beyond those of other teenagers involved who are not so eager to push a narrative. Overnight this group of carefully chosen teenage mouthpieces are shepherded into a national spotlight and become instant poster children for a movement dedicated to removing weapons from the hands of Americans.

Celebrities rushed in with adulation and hard cash to crown this new clique of young people as the voice of all American youth demanding gun control. Millions of willing teenage followers jumped on the gun control bandwagon in what is in essence a global game of “Simon Says.”

Podcast: On the Objective – Q, Division, And The Next Phase – 03.28.2018

Storm

Join your host Steven Menking (The Amateur Society) as he is joined again by Bill Chapman to discuss the latest from Q including potential action against technology companies, the denuclearization of North Korea, and the back and forth dynamics of analyzing the various scenarios. Many have grown frustrated with the lack of overt action, and fair enough. We discuss how to maintain a proper balance in our interpretations so that we are less subject to the wild emotional swings of decision cycles. Now is the time to soberly assess the situation, to appropriately take action in our own lives, and above all to seek God. Thanks as always for joining us On the Objective!

Podcast: The Amateur Society – Stephen Hawking, Science, And Philosophy – 03.19.2018

HorseheadNebula

The death of Stephen Hawking brings to an end the latest epoch of physics and cosmology. While there will be extensive continuity, we must understand that our understanding of physics and the universe is – when properly performed – expanding and developing. What will future generations highlight about this particular period in which the triumph of science over philosophy was espoused? What is the proper approach to understanding the interaction between science and philosophy? How do we evaluate hypotheses when we don’t have the empirical tools to recreate their conditions? Why haven’t we been able to formulate a grand unified theory? How does worldview inevitably intrude on these discussions? The group addresses these questions and more on the latest installment of The Amateur Society!

Podcast: The Amateur Society – Mastering Verbal Communication – 03.12.2018

DeathofSocrates

It is uncontroversial to suggest that verbal communication is an important skill for everyone to have regardless of our stations in life, so why are we so bad at it? We all know people who – ourselves, family, friends, coworkers, public figures, etc. – who are abysmal verbal communicators. Unfortunately, that makes them undesirable to speak with. Where do we start if we want to improve our verbal communication skills? How does worldview fit into the equation? What happens when we dedicate ourselves to improvement in this area? The group addresses these questions and more on the latest installment of The Amateur Society!

Podcast: On the Objective – False Shepherds And The Justice Of God – Pastor Mike Spaulding – 03.05.2018

Justice

Join us On the Objective as your host Steven Menking (The Amateur Society) sits down with Pastor Mike Spaulding (Soaring Eagle Radio) to discuss God’s justice. In a time where so many are clamoring for justice, it is critical to note that there is intense disagreement on what justice would look like. Ultimately it is a question of morality. What is God’s standard of justice? The conversation also covers the prevalence of false shepherds who are leading the people of God astray in many different ways in our generation. Will we see true justice in our generation?
