Two lead singers for major metal rock bands have committed suicide over the last two months. The chickens have come home to roost. The ideas have borne the consequences. Linkin Park’s Lead Singer committed suicide, but not before he influenced a young man, Matthew Murray, to conduct a shooting massacre in Colorado. Teen suicides doubled, and then doubled again, and then doubled again since the 1960s. Kevin Swanson traces the suicidal worldview from Hawthorne to Nietzsche to Hemingway to Kurt Cobain. And then, we take a look at Comic Con and the massive escape from reality that began in 1970.

This program includes:

1. Generations with Kevin Swanson

2. The World View in 5 Minutes with Adam McManus (The Battle Ends for Charlie Gard, Trump Administration Cancels Sex Ed Programs, New Abortion Pill Reversal Treatment)
