Conservative Conversations with ISI: Rod Dreher

Identify the Dangers of Soft Totalitarianism and Learn How to Counter Them with Bestselling Author Rod Dreher

You probably worry about the effects that “wokeness” could have on your livelihood, your community, and your family.

You’re not alone.

A Cato Institute survey found that 62 percent of Americans are convinced “the political climate these days prevents them from saying things they believe because others might find them offensive” . . .

. . . and 32 percent worry that expressing their viewpoints could cost them their jobs.

What can conservatives do to counter this new totalitarianism? How do you take the most effective stand possible—even when it feels risky to do so?

Here to guide you is Rod Dreher, one of the country’s most influential bloggers and the bestselling author of several books.

Dreher has sparked a vital discussion of “soft totalitarianism” on his blog and in his recent New York Times bestseller, Live Not by Lies. Campus culture has “grown up,” he says, and it’s time to emulate the dissidents who resisted totalitarianism in the past.

In this episode of Conservative Conversations with ISI, join Rod Dreher for a close examination of today’s great sociopolitical sickness—and what you can do to stand for the truth.
