In Letter to Lucy: A Manifesto of Creative Redemption—In the Age of Trump, Fascism and Lies (2018), by Frank Schaeffer, the author asks himself a number of questions.  When we speak with Frank later this week, perhaps we should find out how he answers these questions today – sitting here, as we are, watching our country careen toward fascism.  See Frank’s questions below.  — LMO

WATCH Mr. Frank Schaeffer, Artist, Filmmaker & Author, Fall in Love, Have Children, Stay Put, Save the Planet, Be HappyLIVE – Thursday, January 27, 2022, 8 pm ET, on the TruthWorks Network YouTube channel, when he joins “If America Fails?:  The Coming Tyranny,” in discussion on Gender in The Handmaid’s Tale and American culture.

“’I ask myself these questions silently and inwardly: How may I atone for helping to poison America with certainty addiction? How do I defend my grandchildren against the religious right juggernaut I helped create? How do I reject what my parents stood for (fundamentalist fanaticism) and yet honor the love they gave me? How can I help my grandchildren stumble upon the goodness of life before they’re sold towering mounds of brain-damaging garbage? How do I help save the world? (And what kind of deluded messianic fool am I to believe that this is even possible?)’”  — Publisher
