The Truth About McCarthyism: Modern Parallels

This is a topic people think they understand but they don't. So try this presentation as an introduction to a subject that will be enlightening.

Stefan Molyneux is a You Tube personality. He is an atheist but he seems like an honest one. I mean that he is willing to pursue the truth. He is kind of like a modern Cicero. He is documenting the fall of western society like Cicero did during the fall of Rome. Cicero was trying to arouse a love again for virtue in Rome and so Stefan Molyneux also calls for the west to love virtue again.

The mainstream narrative of McCarthyism would tell you that from 1950 to 1954, Senator Joseph R. McCarthy unjustly accused a wide variety of Americans of being communist spies, creating a hysterical witch-hunt that destroyed the lives of innocent people. What is the truth about Sen. Joseph McCarthy and McCarthyism? What are the modern parallels between mid-1950s McCarthyism and the events of today?

Hollywood never tires of making movies of how evil McCarthyism was. Like most historical events the history is written by the winners and McCarthy lost.

This is a long presentation (3hours plus)  and might be good for listening to in the car or while your working/cleaning around the house. I am posting the You Tube version but there are audio versions for downloading here
