What Thomas Hobbes Did on His Summer Vacation

Deep State Radio

We summarize a busy and disturbing week of world events with a bit of free-association between Rosa Brooks of Georgetown Law Center, Kori Schake of AEI and David Sanger of the New York Times. It takes us from Bill Barr suggesting Democrats were adherents of French enlightenment philosopher Jean-Jacques Rousseau to the reality that Barr is much more a Hobbesian to other Hobbesians from Minsk to Hong Kong to a president who can't handle the truth and an intelligence community and White House staff that seems scared to give it to him. And then from there we go to why as bad as COVID has been we're grateful for the opportunity to wear gym clothes most of the time. You won't want to miss any of it. Tune in now.Support this show http://supporter.acast.com/deepstateradio.

ILN EP 70: Thomas Hobbes w/ Harrison Hammonds

I Learned Nothing

Pat was feeling authoritative, so Ben has no choice but get help from our heroic armed forces to reassert his sovereignty over the podcast. In other words, Ben and special guest, Harrison Hammonds teach Pat about the political philosophy of Thomas Hobbes. Thomas Hobbes was a 17th Century English philosopher/narc who argued that political power needs to be vested in and embodied by an all-powerful State, what he called the Leviathan in his eponymous masterpiece, in order for society to function smoothly and peacefully. Without this, humans exist in a Mad Max-esque State of Nature where everyone is literally murdering each other, living lives that are "solitary, poor, nasty, brutish, and short." AKA The Five Spice Girls of the Apocalypse.

Thomas Hobbes & America's Ministers

Mercy Seat Christian Church

The writings of Thomas Hobbes in the 17th century reveal the presupposition of modern day ministers. They have embraced Hobbes' thinking regarding the role of salvation and our relationship to the State. In his book Leviathan, Hobbes schools the Christian that his salvation is not in jeopardy if he obeys the State regardless of what it decrees - so they should obey civil authority regardless of what it decrees. Hobbes has created a form of Christianity in America - embraced by the vast majority of ministers - that causes the ministers and Christians to sit by sipping lattes while the magistrates destroy society. Such Christians actually aid and abet the civil authorities in their evil. 46 Min. MercySeat.net
