The reason for much of the strife we see today, including what happened in Afghanistan as well as the failure of the woke ideology in the U.S., is the stark difference in right vs left worldviews. First up this week is Jason Ross (liberty.edu), Interim Dean of the Helms School of Government at Liberty University. He looks at one aspect of the leftist worldview – America is evil because of our past with slavery. What sets America apart, though, is that we got rid of slavery. Our founding documents and Judeo-Christian foundation paved the way for this. So the leftist narrative that we are evil because of our past with slavery ignores our history.

As Afghanistan spirals out of control, another country is spiraling down in a different way. Australia has gone into lockdown again, causing some to wonder if the country is turning back into a penal colony. Joining us from Down Under is Matthew Wong (discernable.io), Founder of Discernable media. He describes some of the draconian measures authorities are taking in his country. The government keeps moving the goalposts to hold on to power. Matt and John debate the best way to make people realize that the totalitarians are here.

Finally this week we dive into the world of cyber attacks and espionage. Weifeng Zhong (policychangeindex.org), Senior Research Fellow at the Mercatus Center at George Mason University is with us. He discusses what little our government is doing to protect citizens and its own assets from cyber attacks. The powers that be, however, are not seriously looking at the problem because the politically correct thing to do is to not criticize the number one cyber attacker in the world – China.

John finishes up the program with some thoughts on what happened in Afghanistan.

Joining us today is Jason Ross (liberty.edu), Interim Dean of the Helms School of Government at Liberty University. He takes a look at the history of slavery in the U.S. and puts into perspective our country's role in the practice. Slavery has existed in one form or another globally for all of human existence. Yes, even in the U.S. What sets America apart is that we got rid of it. Our founding documents and our Judeo-Christian foundation paved the way for this. And the narrative from CRT peddlers today that we are an irredeemable country because of racism simply does not hold up under the factual reality of our history.

Happy Memorial Day everyone! In this special holiday podcast, John gives you a behind the scenes perspective on Steel on Steel and why it is we do what we do. He explains why he puts his heart and soul into the show, highlighting the shifts in economics, politics, and religion throughout history that have influenced his thinking. If you're going to take the time to listen, we're going to take the time to put out something worth listening to. On this Memorial Day (and always), we honor those men and women who sacrificed their lives for our freedom. And we honor the One who sacrificed His life so that we may have eternal freedom.

We are facing a critical moment in America's history – will we continue to further the ideological divide or can we truly keep this the United States? Joining us today is Dr. Richard Land (ses.edu), President of Southern Evangelical Seminary. He looks at the growing discontent among fly-over folks at being unheard and censored. And media does nothing but throw gasoline on the fire of division with their biased reporting and alternative definitions of not only the truth but even individual words. The education system is to blame as well, teaching children from a young age that this is a horrible and racist country. Is there anything we can do to turn this highly divisive tide?
