FTNCI 045: The Rise and Triumph of Anti-Individualism

Anti-individualism hangs in the air. Within Evangelical Christianity, the discussion on CRT (Critical Race Theory) has changed. But what has not changed is the rejection of individualism.

This episode offers our unique analysis from the point of view of a rational Christian philosophy.

If you have seen Carl Trueman’s book The Rise and Triumph of the Modern Self, and if you have seen Christians across the spectrum praising it as an astute analysis (the best analysis in 50 years!) and if you’re familiar with the term “individualism” and the basis of American constitutionalism and individual rights, you’ll say:

There’s a trick here.

The trick is to make people think that the insanity of the left comes from them being too individualistic.
