Thank God You're Not Famous - LIVE Kerfefe Break with Keri Sm
I thank God I'm not famous, and you should too. It occurs to me that the three most corrupting forces I see again and again in humans - whether today or throughout history - are fame, money and power. Mostly because the first two can lead to the third, and power can easily corrupt. Very few people seem to be able to manage it without it destroying them in some way. And yet - so much of our culture holds these three things up as perfectly natural aspirational goals, especially for young people. Join us for a LIVE #KerfefeBreak on #Deprogrammed with Keri Smith on Monday, February 12th at 1pm CST. We're going to take a look at some clips of Ice Cube, Bill Maher, Joe Rogan, Russell Brand and others discussing the dangers of fame. And then we'll try to draw out the difference between healthy aspirations and potentially destructive ones.

Watch Along: TX Supreme Court Hears Arguments for Sterilizing & Mutilating Kids (SB14)
Join us for a LIVE Watch-Along on #Deprogrammed with Keri Smith, Wednesday, January 31st at 6pm CST. We're watching footage from yesterday's arguments both for and against SB-14 in front of the Texas Supreme Court. SB-14 is a Texas bill that bans Texas doctors from performing mutilating "gender transition" surgeries on children or giving often sterilizing puberty-blockers and cross-sex hormones to children. The bill was to go into effect in September of 2023, but a district court judge issued a temporary injunction on the law, which resulted in Texas's Attorney General filing an appeal to the Texas Supreme Court, which allowed the ban to take effect September 1, 2023. Those who support mutilating and sterilizing children are asking that the Texas Supreme Court reinstate the injunction on the ban. This is an important developing story for us to watch together, to familiarize ourselves with the arguments both for and against "gender affirming care" (an Orwellian phrase) for children. The line dividing good and evil is clear in these arguments.
