Trumpet Hour: Roundtable Discussion: The Dangerous Rise of Strongmen
- On today’s show, we’re going to talk about the rise of strongmen in the world—and the dangerous new age this signals.
- The spread of free, democratic societies for the past couple hundred years is now giving way to the rise of authoritarian rule, populism, cult of personality, autocracy and dictatorship.
- We see the trend unfolding in Russia, China, Japan and elsewhere in Asia.
- We see it in Turkey, all through the Middle East, and Africa.
- Throughout Europe, voters are empowering nationalist politicians—in Hungary, Poland, Austria, the Czech Republic—and we see the dismantling of the political establishment in France and Germany.
- We’ll talk about what is driving this trend, and what is causing it to spread—and we’ll see how this trend was prophesied in the Bible. We’ll see why it’s so important and where it is leading.
