John often tackles the question: how did we get to where we are today? That's an important question, but so is: where are we heading? To lead off the show this week, John combines the two questions, looking at all the puzzle pieces affecting us today. He tackles the situation with Russia and Ukraine as well as inflation, oil prices, climate change, the push to discontinue fossil fuels, and the state of U.S. currency as it relates to the world. He shows how we got to where we are today and where we could end up tomorrow.

To better understand the bigger picture, today's millennials and gen-zees need to shed the progressive ideology they're taught in schools and adopt a facts over feelings approach to thinking. Joining us today is Jason Hill (jasondamianhill.com), Professor of Philosophy at DePaul University in Chicago. He discusses politics, education, and culture and gives us hope in the face of the discouragement we see every day. He relates his experience with students and how many of them are beginning to wake up to the fact that something is wrong and maybe the truth really is more important than feelings.

John finishes up recapping the current situation we find ourselves in, once again putting the puzzle pieces together with the Russia-Ukraine conflict, the global economy, and the always pervasive climate change narrative. We are flying into a perfect storm; a storm caused by decades of insane policies. But God is our anchor and our hope and we should always pray for His guidance in our lives.

A large percentage of college students are being taught progressive ideology and, as a result, focus more on feelings and opinions than on facts and truth. Today, John catches up with Jason Hill (jasondamianhill.com), Professor of Philosophy at DePaul University in Chicago, who interacts with students on a daily basis. If we look at not only education, but also politics and culture, it's really easy to become discouraged and think of the future as bleak. Is there hope? Professor Hill suggests that in order to counter progressives, the right needs to advocate for their principles rather than always being on defense. And he sees hope in university classrooms: more and more students today are waking up to the fact that something is wrong and maybe, just maybe, the truth is more important than feelings.

Anne-Christine Hoff: Marxist Youth

Many of today's youth – college-age and younger – don't want to debate and don't seem capable of understanding history as it actually was. We welcome to the podcast today Anne-Christine Hoff (jarvis.edu), Professor of English at Jarvis Christian College in Texas. Younger liberals make ideological claims but can't back them up and can't defend them, but if you disagree with them, they will thunder condemnation against you, the racist dissenter. That is classic Marxism. Big Tech and the education system have teamed up to make young people what they are today. And many Christian universities don't seem to want to address these issues. That's unfortunate because if there is going to be a successful pushback against the indoctrination, it will have to come from Christians.

Critical race theory is saturating our education system in America. What is it and how does it affect students? Back with us today is Clare Lopez (ccnationalsecurity.org), Member of the Citizens Commission on National Security. She looks at what critical race theory is, what it realistically tells students, and how it is actually creating division and racism rather than attempting to stop it. Why would anyone perpetuate this type of narrative? Because there is a deeper, more nefarious plan afoot, to seize power and fundamentally transform society.

Producer Steve sneaks in after Clare and John are finished to briefly look at how critical race theory is not compatible with the Christian church.

Joining us today is Anthony Hennen Managing Editor at the James G. Martin Center for Academic Renewal. He observes how college students are subjected to political beliefs they may not believe in from teachers or administrators across a variety of disciplines. He also offers suggestions on how to push back on this, including the one that always seems to work – going after the money.
