    Richard M. Weaver argues that the decline of Western civilization resulted from the rising acceptance of relativism over absolute reality. In spite of increased knowledge, this retreat from the realist intellectual tradition has weakened the Western capacity to reason, with catastrophic consequences for social order and individual rights. But Weaver also offers a realistic remedy. These difficulties are the product not of necessity, but of intelligent choice.

    [Contains explicit content] The "Honorable" William Arnett bangs the gavel on "Arguments and Grievances," a debate show where host Kevin White assigns comedians to advocate for one side of a classic case like Paper v. Plastic or Open Carry v. Open Container. Nota bene: the arguments you are about to hear are irrefutable, if not necessarily logical. If you find yourself embroiled in a similar debate, you are strongly advised to seek the advice of local counsel.
