Manage episode 289999809 series 2562456
“This view that there is no truth, but only power has emanated through and infected...our whole cultural and institutional life,” says Dr. Stephen Blackwood, President of Ralston College.
“We are facing civic alienation, inner-city violence, the devastation of our inherited intellectual and spiritual culture” are evidence of the sickness ailing Western civilization, in Blackwood’s view.
“The only antidote to the widespread nihilism is to recover, to re-apprehend the realities that nihilism denies—truth, beauty, goodness, forgiveness.” Blackwood has recently launched Ralston College, a new institution of higher education committed to free speech and open discourse.
