Mike: I said this last week, that I would explain the Birzer Effect for new listeners. Here’s the Birzer effect in 30 seconds or less. Brad Birzer is a friend of mine, a professor at Hillsdale College. He’s written one of my favorite books in the forgotten founding fathers series, American Cicero: The Life of Charles Carroll. Birzer is also the world’s biggest fan of J.R.R. Tolkien and the works of J.R.R. Tolkien. Brad likes to write at The Imaginative Conservative website about the issues that I just talked about, about morality and history and cultural changes and how without dealing with those things, without a firm eye set on those things and discussing those things, and hopefully getting all of you to discuss those things, then we are hopelessly stuck in the current malaise that we’re in.
I find that every time I bring up those things that Birzer likes to discuss and that excite me, if I bring it up and discuss it, I can be assured of a couple of things. One of them is crickets chirping in the background amongst many people that are hearing it. The other side effect is all communication to me, whether Twitter, email, phone, Facebook, you name it, will cease until I stop talking about those things. I have yet to be able to explain the Birzer Effect, but I do know that it exists. Now that I’ve explained it, now that you know what it is, now you’ll know what I’m talking about. I’ve reset the subject. All the mysteries are solved. We didn’t even have to call Scooby Doo in.
