Mark... where in the world do you think BoJo is taking poor Britain? I heard his remarkable statement the future should be more green, fairer, neutral, and while neutral more feminine. This guy is two steps behind Biden and closing fast. I can see why the Europeans have so embraced Biden. They are going to treat him like a rented mule and he'll reply 'look, that's who we are'. We have our kakistocracy and we shall suffer for it.

The left continues to perpetrate the myth that the events of Jan. 6th were a violent riot where 1/4 score of people died. One person was shot dead by a US Capitol Police Officer, and the other US Capitol Police officer Brian Sicknick died from causes unrelated to the events of that day. You briefly touched on this subject in an article you wrote for Imprimis, the publication from Hillsdale College. Now, Congressman David Cicilline (D-RI1) proposes a bill to "censure" Republican Reps Hice, Gosar, Clyde for questioning the left's narrative, and don't wave that Constitution at me.
Very Sincerely yours, A Churlish Philosopher.

With more and more revelations coming out about the November 3rd elections, the January 6th "insurrection" and the origin of the SARS-Cov-2 virus, it is not surprising that there might be a minor decline in trust in the government and our elites. Now with the strategy being outlined by Merrick Garland to set up a network of informants to root out the scourge of domestic terrorism inspired by white supremacy, are we now all being targeted by our Department of Justice? Do you think that we should all join the new DHS Stasi so that we can inform on each other? If we did, we could then be issued our own "unindicted co-conspirator" passports, allowing us to stay our of jail. At least it might gum up the system if we all started informing on each other.

Hey, Mark. It seems that while China and the left's lies about COVID19 have made their rounds around the world, the truth has its shoes on and making appearances, the latest being lefty Jon Stewart on the even more leftist Stephen Colbert show saying that this disease was likely made in a lab.
What gets me is that those of us on the right have been saying the truth for months, but the mainstream media stuck to their narrative for over a year and are only now letting the truth trickle out. What's truly sad is that Trump and everyone on the right speak the truth, but it doesn't sink in until a prominent progressive like Jon Stewart speaks out.
How can a liberal democratic society correct itself politically or culturally when narrative is so often preferred over truth?

Just what are we going to expect to happen regarding the recounts and the DURHAM REPORT? We all know that they won't do a thing about it like the Hunter Biden laptop and give us the whole "It's improper to remove a sitting president during the midst of a pandemic" or some other left leaning narrative that has to be addressed like climate change or white supremacy. Voter integrity may be important but what good is it when not only the people counting the votes don't comply or even worse, the ones expected to enforce the new voter laws refuse to do so and nothing is done when it is found they were guilty of doing both? Your thoughts Mark.

You joked about Joe's comments about a minor's cute barrettes in her hair as well as his well documented hair sniffing, nipple twisting, leg hair rubbing, creepy shoulder crouching, and cringe worthy photo ops over the years-all with minor girls. I appreciate the joke, but I'm disgusted by this behavior and am starting to think it shouldn't be joked about but rather called out as behavior worthy of severe prison time.
That disgusting old man should be behind bars with his son Hunter. They are sick and twisted individuals who long ago sold their souls to the devil. WTF, Mark? WTF? That's all I can think of saying. WTF is going on right now? Is the #metoo movement for adult Hollywood celebs only?

You have not done an interview in a long time. I really enjoyed your interviews so hoping that feature will return. I will throw in another vote for Victor Davis Hanson. Or perhaps Lord Black? But you have a habit of finding less well known but interesting subjects ... how about a scientist who called the lab leak early?
And how about an Aussie Content segment to match the Canadian version? As long as you don't try to wheel out Julie Bishop! Happy with Tim Blair or John Roskam but please - please - not Julie.
Actually what would be really fantastic is letting club members vote on different options!

Great segment Andrew!

As it stands, the day the same criteria is used in all instances is the day I am willing to consider this notion. Thank you for standing up for truth Mark!

You make a interesting point about the masks, the Spanish Flu and WWI. My wife and I took a day off yesterday to clean our basement and treated ourselves to lunch at a 50s-themed diner, the kind with all the stuff on the walls. She noted, anecdotally, how it's interesting that our parents' generation seems to universally love that era, the Happy Days malt shop with a jukebox and cars with fins parked outside. I got to thinking that those things were all great, but they were more symbols of a confident era. We had just won a World War against an incredible evil and our economy was roaring. We were the best. Our elites traded all that for "security," and they've suckered so many into coming along with them. Think this is a good point, or am I just a lousy date?

That was a great programme, Mark. Thanks for it. And totally agree with your statements at the end. I learn a lot from your musical choices and I appreciate that you speak from the heart. I personally get way more enjoyment out of reading Homer and Churchill and reminding myself that most great thoughts are accessible through taking the past seriously rather than fretting about Twitter or the BBC. But I suppose I am more optimistic than you overall and believe the cycles often turn and the revolutionaries consume themselves. I really do hope it is brightest before the dawn. But so many people get hurt in the process by all these loony destructive people. Learning from history is the key. You are great at reminding us of that.
