Dr. Larry Arnn Continues His Totalitarianism Study of That Hideous Strength by C.S. Lewis

Email Email Print

HH: It is that last radio hour of the week. Even in a week as full of news ten days after an election as consequential as this, we always go back to the big ideas and the big books with Dr. Larry Arnn, president of Hillsdale College as we do the Hillsdale Dialogue. All of the Hillsdale Dialogues are collected at www.hughforhillsdale.com going back four-plus years now, www.hughforhillsdale.com. Everything Hillsdale is organized, collated and made very easily accessible at www.hillsdale.edu, including your free subscription, free, I emphasize free, to Imprimis, the speech digest that lights up millions of mailboxes every month as Hillsdale provides you with the very best reading material. All you have to do is sign up for it. That’s part of the mission of the university, the lighthouse of the north, the lantern of the north, I call it. And all of their free online courses, also at www.hillsdale.edu, and you will be needing some of them, given the arrival of President-Elect Trump on the scene. Dr. Arnn, you did my first hour today. You took time off. You came back. I appreciate it very much. We are talking about C.S. Lewis’ That Hideous Strength. But I neglected to mention in the first hour, and I’ve got to do it or people will be mad at me. Rush Limbaugh lit up my emails two days ago when he said that you were going to be the Secretary of Education. And I don’t expect you to comment on this, but I do want to say, it’s going to create a hell of a lot of work for me if this happens. I’m going to have to recut all the old Hillsdale Dialogues and play them in this hour. Now that’s good, because that audience has never heard them. But are you giving any thought to poor Mr. Bultitude in the other room there who’s got to do all the work?

HH: It is the last radio hour of the week, on the last weekend before the presidential election of 2016. So it’s an abbreviated Hillsdale Dialogue today, only two segments with Dr. Larry Arnn, president of Hillsdale College, as afterwards, I must speak with Reince Priebus, the chairman of the RNC in the third segment. But Dr. Arnn is appearing on a very auspicious day, and everything Hillsdale is found at www.hillsdale.edu. And www.hughforhillsdale.com includes all the Hillsdale Dialogues, because today, Vince Benedetto of Bold Gold Radio informs us on Twitter is College Radio Day. And he greets Scot Bertram, John Miller, Hillsdale 101.7, and Hillsdale and me, hashtag #WRFH, which stands for Radio Free Hillsdale. Did you know that today is College Radio Day, Dr. Larry Arnn?

Binge listen your way through Western Civilization. Dr. Arnn is not only those things, and the leader of a great seminar on totalitarianism, he is a baseball man and as previously revealed, he is an Indians fan. And I believe that you have been enjoying my David Axelrod bipartisan baseball balm moments. It’s a good thing that we have sport, isn’t it, that we can agree on? Didn’t the Greeks lay down their endless wars at least for a period of time in the ancient days to partake in sport, Dr. Arnn?

HH: This is the last radio hour of the week. That means it’s time for the Hillsdale Dialogue with Dr. Larry Arnn, president of Hillsdale College. He is, of course, my weekly interlocutor most weeks. Sometimes one of his colleagues from Hillsdale joins me. Everything that we talk about, and have for many years now, available at www.hughforhillsdale.com. Many of you in increasing numbers are binge listening, beginning with Homer up to the present. And I appreciate that. But there are also online courses at Hillsdale, including their courses on the Constitution and on many other subjects at www.hillsdale.edu, as well as the opportunity to sign up for your free copy, I emphasize free copy, of Imprimis, their monthly speech digest which goes off to, like, two million people. So go to www.hillsdale.edu. Sign up for Imprimis and go to www.hughforhillsdale.com to listen to these Dialogues. We are in the middle of a series that tracks Dr. Arnn’s semester-long seminar with his undergraduate students on totalitarianism. And this week, we continue our conversation on Arthur Koestler’s book, Darkness At Noon, a book I told you last week I had not read before. And Dr. Arnn, I’m going to have to beg you for an extra week, because I am only three-quarters of the way through. I don’t want to know how this ends, though I kind of know how it ends. It is so good that I making too many notes and we’re going to need the time. I am curious at the beginning of the second installment, how did your students react to this, because like them, I have never read it before?
