S2 E12 Behind the Scenes: The Very Special Insurrection

Thank you for joining us to celebrate the virtues of self-rule and debate the state of our republic. Welcome to a behind the scenes of the Citizens Prerogative podcast. A little different format with your same hosts.

Discussion topics in this episode:

  • The events that occurred at the Capitol in Washington D.C. which inspired this week’s art.
  • The reality of true grievances warped by social media and an old foe of liberty and democracy: the lost cause.
  • A total layman aside on the nature of our consciousness and placing faith where at the edge of science.


  • Michael V. Piscitelli
  • Raymond Wong Jr.

  • This episode was inspired by the spirit of trying something different. We will return to our prior format next week and only do these periodically.

  • If you’re interested in learning more about how Italians and other later arrivals were discriminated against, check out The Guarded Gate: Bigotry, Eugenics, and the Law That Kept Two Generations of Jews, Italians, and Other European Immigrants Out of America, by Daniel Okrent.
  • Regarding the whole rant on dark energy, no I don’t consider it the end-all-be-all of the “me” that’s suspended in our heads. It is interesting however, the deeper we peer into our atoms, the less we find. All matter appears to be built upon nothing more than a weak energy field. Plus, we only call dark matter and energy those things simply because we have no idea what they are… or if they even exist at all. So far we only have hypothesis to test and no real knowledge as of yet.
