What's the key to understanding what is happening in America today? First, we must understand human nature. Only once you appreciate how deeply flawed humans have the potential to be, will you marvel at the immense moral achievement that is America. 0:00 Welcome To Fireside Chat Episode 172! 1:45 The Key To Understanding America 5:12 Desire For Power, Fame, & Sex 14:27 Lack Of Courage & Wisdom 16:28 Yearning To Be Taken Care Of & Utopia 17:16 Ingratitude & Psychological Issues 19:21 Massive Divide In America: Free Speech 25:10 Gaining Wisdom & Acting Happy 28:00 Dennis’s Super Bowl Predictions 29:00 Understand Human Nature
Some people really do thrive on drama. A national crisis is necessary for the Left, as they crave chaos or catastrophe—and that's why we will always have hysterics. Dennis explains why it's important to know that they exist. 0:00 Media Across The World: All The Same 2:22 Learn From Otto: Be Easy 4:32 The Left Are Drama Queens 8:11 Know The Evils Of Communism 11:47 Double Standards For Big Tech? 13:56 What Is The Most Important Value? 16:51 Left Vs. Liberal 18:16 A New Political Party Is Suicidal 19:55 Limited Government Inconsistencies? 27:57 Don’t Forget: Be Easy!
Calls for unity sure sound nice—if only they were sincere. Total submission to the left is their desire: "Submit to us and we'll be unified; don't and you'll be punished."
There is an Orwellian push to change the words we use, for example eliminating "gendered language." This may seem trivial but will end up having a big impact on our society in a bad way. Dennis Prager explains why.

We’ve all heard it: “I don't believe in God, I believe in science.” That's fine, but how do you get good and evil from science? And do religious people reject science? Dennis Prager responds.

I myself try to keep my mind on the fact that EVIL...like the sinful, unbelieving, and faithless society today, is part of the Story. When its TIME...Jesus will come. However he does it, he will when its his time

science is given to us slowly as we grow as humans. The more we put our minds to goodness, and growing we unlock more science. I pray for anyone who has no faith. Eternity is a long time to gamble with.
