The Cult of Soft Totalitarianism

Dr. Michael Horton - White Horse Inn

Published on 11/15/2020

In his recent book, Live Not By Lies, Rod Dreher tells the story of a Czech professor who began noticing a shift taking place here in the States about a decade ago. “Friends would lower their voices and look over their shoulders when expressing conservative views. I grew up like this,” he said. According to Dreher, we’re witnessing the rise of a kind of “soft totalitarianism,” that will in his view be closer to Huxley’s Brave New World than Orwell’s Nineteen Eighty-Four. Shane Rosenthal talks with Rod Dreher about the thesis of his new book on this edition of the White Horse Inn. November of 2020 marks the 30th anniversary of the White Horse Inn!
