In Person Class and Virtual Class
EmpowerU Managing Board Member Dan Regenold discusses America and Ben Shapiro’s new, best-selling book How to Destroy America in Three Easy Steps. A growing number of Americans want to tear down what has taken us 250 years to build. We are starting to see this destruction of America in the canceling of our shared history, our ideas and our culture. Violence is in our streets is erupting in the bigger cities.
In front of our very eyes, traditional areas of civic agreement are vanishing. We cannot agree what makes America special, or if it is special. The 1619 project, which looks at America through the lens of being racist and corrupt is starting to be taught to our kids as history instead of the history of America’s founding that you learned growing up.
Could America be radically transformed over the next decade? Could our incredible Country become something we don’t even recognize? Learn about the Disintegrationists and their attack on values that have built our nation. Ben Shapiro is an American conservative political commentator, media host and attorney. At 17, he became the youngest national syndicated columnist in the United States. He founded The Daily Wire and he is now the host of The Ben Shapiro Show. Dan encourages you to read the Ben’s newest book before class and be ready to join the conversation.
The thesis and question of tonight’s class is: Can America be Destroyed?
