Mr. Horvat is the author of the book Return to Order: From a Frenzied Economy to an Organic Christian Society–Where We’ve Been, How We Got Here and Where We Need to Go. Horvat's writings have appeared worldwide including in The Wall Street Journal, The Christian Post, American Thinker, TheBlaze, Crisis, FOX News, and The Washington Times, as well as other publications and websites. He gives more than 150 radio and TV interviews annually.

This episode of the Dr. J Show focuses on the connection between cultural and economic decline. Topics discussed include:

  • All political battles are moral battles. We are in a national moral crisis.
  • The Left seeks revolution--not just change, but the overthrow of the system. They don't want the American order.
  • Science separated from a moral foundation is technocratic tyranny.
  • Leadership is service.
  • To be yourself, you can't be obsessed with being "equal" with everybody else. The sexes are different, not "equal." Allowing everyone to develop themselves *unequally* is what makes society prosper. Resentment over our inequalities destroys societal harmony.
  • Societal order focuses on mutually helpful relationships.
  • Radically egalitarian societies always lead to disorder and bloodshed.
  • Past revolutions sought to destroy exterior structures (church, government, society), but the Sexual Revolution seeks to destroy internal stuctures (identity, logic, being): in other words, self-annihilation.

When he’s not writing, Mr. Horvat enjoys jogging and fencing. He lives in Spring Grove, Pennsylvania.
