Tom interviews Mike Kleen from Black Oak Media. Tom and Mike discuss the ideas contained within his insightful book One Voice and other issues vital to “Middle America.” Topics include:
- Postmodern deconstruction of Western Culture and how it de-beautifies a people’s art, architecture, towns, homes and their very lives.
- The unique Midwestern brand of legends and folklore, the messages among them and their effects on the local culture.
- How self-reliance can be a repelling force to the continuing encroachment of the federal government into the lives of ordinary people.
- The persistent threat of totalitarianism. How it creeps into a population’s mindset and takes over its organic institutions.
- Self-sufficiency as a way out of America’s current economic-cultural malaise or what Mike describes as “Modern Feudalism.”
To learn more about Mike Kleen and his work please go to his personal website and his publishing outlet Black Oak Media. He also has fascinating material on Legends and Lore of Illinois and uniquely insightful writings on the concept of freedom at Strike the Root. Many of Mike’s books can be found here at Amazon.
