Franciscan University Presents on

Franciscan University Presents on EWTN

The signs of the times—declining public trust, a broken political system, fraying social fabric, a growing divide between faithful and secular people—suggest much is wrong in America. Has liberalism, America’s founding political philosophy, reached its end? And can the formation of countercultural communities by men and women of good will build liberty after liberalism?

Dr. Patrick Deneen, political science professor at the University of Notre Dame will discuss these and other questions with Franciscan University Presents host Dr. Bob Rice, professor of theology and catechetics at Franciscan University, and panelists Dr. Scott Hahn and Dr. William Newton of Franciscan University’s Theology Department.

June’s Show: “Why Liberalism Failed”

Airdates:  Sunday, June 2nd, at 10 pm, Thursday, June 6th, at 5 am, and Friday, June 7th, at 2 pm
