All good things must come to an end. After nearly 32 years on the air, this week marks the final radio broadcast of the Steel on Steel program. John kicks off the show by pulling together all we've learned in three decades about how the world works, how we got to where we are today, and where we can expect to head in the future. He leaves a lasting legacy to you, our loyal listeners.

To help John make sense of the changes in America over the last 30 years, he welcomes one of the show's earliest friends, Rabbi Burt Yellin of Messianic Congregation Roeh Israel in Denver, Colorado (roehisrael.org). Past mistakes are coming home to roost and those in power now haven't learned from them because they're proposing the same failed solutions today.

John finishes out the show with one more review, documenting the fellow travelers on the globalist train over the last century and how it affects us today. He then says goodbye to you, the listener.

On behalf of John; his incredible wife Carol who has been the glue that holds us all together; Brad, who solves every problem that comes across his path and keeps us relevant online; Producer Steve, who has had the privilege of occasionally joining John on the microphone for the last quarter of the show's tenure; and from everyone else involved in the show – thanks to all of you for your prayers, your kindness, and your loyalty over the years!

Today's program continues the thread of how we got here in a divided country and where we're going.  Carol Loeffler returns to the program to pick up the economic thread from last week and John parallels that over the last century with a trace of all the 'fellow travelers' including theosophists, secular humanists, cultural Marxists such as the Frankfurt School, globalists and one-worlders, who have sought to "transform" our cultural from rugged individualist, free market capitalist economy to a globally oriented socialist state-run technocracy.

What is the future of the world's economy? Is it a digital currency and all the problems that come with that? Or is there a better option? Joining us today is Chris Brady (chrisbrady.com), Founder and CEO of Life Platform. He lends his cryptocurrency experience, looking at the benefits of Bitcoin and the dangers of a digital currency, especially the tracking aspect and the programmability standards. He and John also discuss central banks and the inevitable rollout of debt to create digital currencies. Chris also answers the question: is Russia end running sanctions by investing in crypto?

John tells us every day that Steel on Steel focuses on economics, politics, and religion. Today, we welcome the Director of Jihad Watch, Robert Spencer (jihadwatch.org) to the podcast, to discuss how all three of those issues are immersed in global dysfunction. He looks at the surging reliance on digital currency platforms, the moving away from the dollar, how bad policies by the Biden administration are projecting weakness to the world, and the nature of jihad and Christian persecution around the world.

At Steel on Steel, we look at economics, politics, and religion from a worldview perspective. When looking at law and the financial markets, one needs to include both political and religious analysis for a more complete picture. Joining us today is Richard Reinsch (lawliberty.org), Editor of Law & Liberty. Many on the Left say that capitalist markets have failed and need government intervention to survive. They inject their own subjective morality onto law and the markets to justify that change. But history will tell us that the free markets and the system of law that we established in the West came about as a result of the application of Biblical principles. That's why our laws have been fair and our markets have been free.
