About This Webinar

Identify the Dangers of Soft Totalitarianism and Learn How to Counter Them with a Leading Conservative Writer

What would you do if your employer required you to participate in a kind of social justice training?

Or if your teacher, professor, or pastor started teaching critical race theory?

You probably worry about the effects that “wokeness” could have on your livelihood, your community, and your family.

You’re not alone.

A survey conducted by the Cato Institute in July found that 62 percent of Americans are convinced “the political climate these days prevents them from saying things they believe because others might find them offensive” . . .

. . . and 32 percent worry that expressing their viewpoints could cost them their jobs.

What can conservatives do to counter this new totalitarianism?

How do you take the most effective stand possible—even when it feels risky to do so?

Here to guide you is Rod Dreher, one of the country’s most influential bloggers and the bestselling author of several books.

Dreher has sparked a vital discussion of “soft totalitarianism” on his blog and in his recent New York Times bestseller, Live Not by Lies. Campus culture has “grown up,” he says, and it’s time to emulate the dissidents who resisted totalitarianism in the past.

And in this episode of Conservative Conversations with ISI, you’ll get to join him for a close examination of today’s great sociopolitical sickness—and what you can do to stand for the truth.

Join Rod Dreher live on Tuesday, November 17, at 7 p.m. ET to learn how to identify and counter the dangers of soft totalitarianism.
