In the second part of our interview, Mary Eberstadt discusses her book “Primal Screams” and her argument that the Sexual Revolution of the 1960s has created identity politics. We also have a conversation on contemporary feminism, how the summer of 2020 was a fulfilled “prophecy,” the turmoil people are facing because of loneliness, and how her faith helps her live a life free of fear.
Other topics we cover: What policy changes could help the family? Who are the culture wars really between? Why are so many rejecting basic biological realities? How should Christians engage in the public square?
