Today, The Two Mikes spoke with Professor Thomas DiLorenzo, an economist who worked in three universities for 41 years before retiring. He is known for his scholarship in economics, and has written three thought-provoking books about Abraham Lincoln. He writes regularly – and very well – for https://www.lewrockwell.com.
Professor DiLorenzo spoke today about what he very convincingly describes as America’s system of “Stalinist universities” which, after 40 years of effort, is filling American’s degreed-workforce with socialism-committed individuals, who are creating the social disaster that is now unfolding in the United States.
He also argued that the Stalinist faculties dominate not only universities, but all levels of education down to grammar schools. These institutions now produce socialist automatons that follow and promote any nonsensical and/or socially and financially suicidal policy or position announced by their socialist leaders. These automations also follow orders that direct them to threaten, coerce, or intimidate those who disagree with or oppose their half-baked leaders’ demands.
Following are several of Professor Dilorenzo’s most recent essays:
–Professor Di Lorenzo’s most recent book is: The Problem with Lincoln. Washington, D.C., Regenery, 2020
YouTube, Spotify, and other Big Tech platforms are taking Freedom First Network down
It’s no secret we speak our minds and bring on guests who do the same. That’s one of the biggest reasons we put together the Freedom First Network in the first place. There are far too many news outlets, including so-called “conservative” media companies, who are so beholden to Big Tech that they temper their perspectives at best and outright coverup the truth at worst. Many, as you all know, will blatantly lie in order to maintain the narrative that supports the radical agenda taking over much of the United States.
We have had our YouTube channel taken down. Many of our shows have been suppressed or removed by Facebook and Twitter. Spotify banned one of our shows completely from their platform. Google hates us. We’ve even been censored by some of the smaller players like Medium, Transistor, and Captivate. But we stand behind our reporting and perspectives and we refuse to bow down to Big Tech tyranny for the sake of pageviews or video plays.
This isn’t the easiest road to travel, especially for a media company that is so new. We launched Freedom First Network in 2020 to fight against the very censorship that we’re seeing so widespread today. We have found great homes for our content on freer speech platforms like Rumble and we’re putting our best efforts forward into building our presence on Locals. Nevertheless, we cannot do it alone. We need help.
One of the things cofounders Jeff Dornik and JD Rucker agreed to from the start was to never be the pawns of companies that do not embrace our worldview. Finding advertisers and affiliates is easy; we receive requests by companies wanting to be pushed on our shows every day. But it’s important to us that we’re promoting companies, services, and products that are beneficial to maintaining a Freedom First stance in America. As a result, we do not take on sponsors easily. We would rather rely on our own products like Freedom First Coffee and the support of our wonderful viewers, listeners, and readers.
Those who want to support us and help keep the fight for America’s future moving forward can do so by donating through our Locals page. There, you can donate monthly or one-time. Some have told us to use Patreon or GoFundMe, but both of those platforms have demonstrated a hatred for free speech. Locals does not. They embrace it. We encourage everyone to join us on Locals, but donations are greatly appreciated as well. We do not have day jobs. Our fight for freedom is a full-time gig.
Please feel free to reach out to us through our contact form. It goes directly to our founders, so if you’re interested in getting involved, investing, sponsoring, or even bringing a show to our network, let us know. May God Bless the United States of America!
