What are the Tytler Cycle and the 4th Turning? Our friend Cork Graham joins us to discuss Alexander Tytler and his theory regarding the 200 year cycle that great societies experience. The 4th Turing is a modern examination of this phenomenon.

Our Warrior of the Week has a question about fighting rifles. Who makes the best AK? Professor Paul has about 30 years experience working with AK style firearms and has some thoughts on the subject. 

Is your family prepared for any disaster or crisis? How can you get ready? How can you be a leader in your community? We consider that and much more during today’s show.

    William Strauss and Neil Howe will change the way you see the world—and your place in it. With blazing originality, The Fourth Turning illuminates the past, explains the present, and reimagines the future. Most remarkably, it offers an utterly persuasive prophecy about how America’s past will predict its future.

    Strauss and Howe base this vision on a provocative theory of American history. The authors look back five hundred years and uncover a distinct pattern: Modern history moves in cycles, each one lasting about the length of a long human life, each composed of four eras—or "turnings"—that last about twenty years and that always arrive in the same order. In The Fourth Turning, the authors illustrate these cycles using a brilliant analysis of the post-World War II period.
