So wonderful. Matt’s such a beautiful genius. I’m so desperate to learn something new, and Matt never disappoints—always impressing me beyond expectations every single time he speaks on history & politics. Tim Kirby is an amazing great mind, too. So sincerely, Thank you, guys.

Baphomet’s face obscured by a leaf? Why is his statue behind King Charles at all? Is that his majesty’s god?

.....so, just finished up Part 1 and, for the MOST part, appreciated your clarification of TRUE Western history, Matthew (I could go even further - as believe YOU to have previously, and legitimately suggest the United States has NEVER been truly 'free' from, independent of British-Roman-Canaanite Empire control; Treaties of both Paris & Versailles QUITE demonstrative of that reality) but, MUST take MAJOR exception with your characterization of 'twentysomething poets'; such HEALTHY catharsis, expression (VITAL to augmentation of my OWN spiritual path starting three decades ago) is a FOUNDATIONAL aspect of evolved, HUMANE societies (including THIS one; rightfully-esteemed Enlightenists Thoreau - a LEADING Libertarian and effective successor to Daniel Shays here in MA; Hawthorne, Emerson & Longfellow) which can SPAWN entrepreneurial, GENUINELY-altruistic impulses - Ben Franklin HIMSELF, just ONE of MANY such Americans.....yeah, I do GET it - a LOT of such 'green', comparatively-youthful sentiment ISN'T so hot but, STILL an ESSENTIAL First Amendment exercise.....
