307 307 - The New Iconoclasm July 26, 2020

I discuss the new iconoclasm--the current movement to remove Confederate monuments and disavow historical figures (like, e.g., Margaret Sanger and John Muir) because some of their beliefs conflict with modern, politically correct sensibilities. A lot of what's been going on is good, to be sure, but how far is too far? Plus: A look at recent--and not-so-recent--films with relevance to current events like BLM and trans rights.
