Therefore there is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus. For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus has set you free from the law of sin and of death. – Romans 8:1-2

In this episode, we talk a little bit about free will, natural law, and more specifically the movie, “No Safe Spaces.”

We also discuss Twisted Sister’s song, “We’re Not Gonna Take It,” from their 1984 LP, “Stay Hunger”

PODCAST TOPIC

No Safe Spaces

No Safe Spaces

Dennis Prager, Mark Joseph, & Adam Carolla

 

The First Amendment and the very idea of free speech are under attack in America today. A growing number of Americans don’t believe you have the right to speak your mind if what you have to say might offend someone, somewhere. They advocate for “safe spaces” in which people won’t be offended by ideas they may find troubling. But is that what America is about?

In NO SAFE SPACES, comedian and podcast king Adam Carolla and radio talk show host Dennis Prager travel the country, talking to experts and advocates on the left and right, tour college campuses, and examine their own upbringings to try to understand what is happening in America today and what free speech in this country should look (and sound) like.

 

We’re Not Gonna Take It is a song by the American band Twisted Sister from their album Stay Hungry. It was first released as a single (with “You Can’t Stop Rock & Roll” as the B-side) on April 27, 1984.

The Stay Hungry album was released two weeks later, on May 10, 1984.

The single reached No. 21 on the Billboard Hot 100 singles chart, making it Twisted Sister’s only Top 40 single. In addition, it is also the band’s highest-selling single in the United States, having been certified Gold on June 3, 2009 for sales of over 500,000 units.

The song was ranked No. 47 on 100 Greatest 80’s Songs and No. 21 on VH1’s 100 Greatest One Hit Wonders of the 80s.

It also received criticism when the Parents Music Resource Center included the song on its “Filthy Fifteen” list for alleged violent lyrical content, allegations that were refuted by lead singer Dee Snider.

“We’re Not Gonna Take It”
song lyrics:

Oh, we’re not gonna take it
No, we ain’t gonna take it
Oh, we’re not gonna take it anymore

We’ve got the right to choose it
There ain’t no way we’ll lose it
This is our life, this is our song

We’ll fight the powers that be, just
Don’t pick our destiny ’cause
You don’t know us, you don’t belong

Oh, we’re not gonna take it
No, we ain’t gonna take it
Oh, we’re not gonna take it anymore

Oh, you’re so condescending
Your gall is never ending
We don’t want nothin’, not a thing from you

Your life is trite and jaded
Boring and confiscated
If that’s your best, your best won’t do

Whoa, oh oh
Whoa, oh oh

We’re right (yeah)
We’re free (yeah)
We’ll fight (yeah)
You’ll see (yeah)

Whoa, whoa, we’re not gonna take it
No, we ain’t gonna take it
Oh, we’re not gonna take it anymore

We’re not gonna take it
No, we ain’t gonna take it
Oh, we’re not gonna take it anymore

No way

We’re not gonna take it (no)
No, we ain’t gonna take it
We’re not gonna take it anymore

Just you try and make us

We’re not gonna take it
(Come on!)
No, we ain’t gonna take it
(You’re all worthless and weak)
We’re not gonna take it anymore
(Now drop and give me twenty)

We’re not gonna take it
(A pledge pin)
No, we ain’t gonna take it
(On your uniform)

We’re not gonna take it anymore
