Setting Brushfires 09-13-2019: a Big Tech Meets Big Brother: Social Credit Scores & Gun Confiscation with Michael Rectenwald
The new wave of gun confiscation “laws” that are being proposed and the tie in to social credit scores is the very future we were told about in 1984 and Brave New World. However, it is a reality, not a fictitious novel. Author Michael Rectenwald joins me to discuss the merging of Big Tech and Big Brother in a new Orwellian nightmare.
He was a Professor at NYU from 2008 to 2019. He is a pundit and champion of free speech against all forms of authoritarianism and totalitarianism, including socialism-communism, “social justice,” fascism, and PC.
Professor Rectenwald has appeared on numerous major network political and other talk shows (Tucker Carlson Tonight, Fox & Friends, The O’Reilly Factor, Varney & Company, The Glenn Beck Show), on syndicated radio shows (Glenn Beck and many others), and YouTube shows and podcasts.
His academic essays have appeared in the British Journal for the History of Science, Endeavour, and the Cambridge University Press anthology George Eliot In Context, among others. He holds a Ph.D. in Literary and Cultural Studies from Carnegie Mellon University, a Master’s in English Literature from Case Western Reserve University, and a B.A. in English Literature from the University of Pittsburgh.
