Join Michael O’Fallon, Dr. James Lindsay, and Dr. Peter Boghossian for three unique presentations and a roundtable discussion as they perform a critical examination of Critical Theory, postmodernism, radical subjectivism and the evolution of what is known in the wider culture as “social justice.” These three men will explore the rapidity of how these concepts have invaded education, medical institutions, political organizations, the arts and entertainment and the Christian faith.
The event will be across from the G3 Conference and is within an easy one minute walk across from the G.I.C.C. This is a separate event from G3 and all are welcome.
