There are multiple battlefronts happening in the world today, both in the physical sense and ideologically. We open today's show looking at a physical battlefront, with John tackling the latest on the Ukraine-Russia conflict. He incorporates a lot of principles covered on Steel on Steel over the last few decades into what we're seeing today, including how reality becomes real, the value of international guarantees is not high, and never elect someone to get you out of situation who got you into it in the first place. There are many lessons to be learned watching the physical battlefront in Ukraine, but that can also be applied to the ideological field.

And, like fighting in the physical world, with ideological enemies, it's important to understand both how your enemy thinks and how best to arm yourself on the battlefront of ideas. Joining the show this week is freelance writer Selwyn Duke (selywnduke.com), who looks at the nature of morality and where both ideological sides are coming from. Each side says their morality is best, so you have to anchor yourself in the truth in order to move forward intelligently. And as far as battle plans are concerned, adopting the Left's Alinsky tactics may just work in our favor.

Finishing off the program this week, John gives his thoughts on a variety of topics, including education reform, competing narratives, the need for nuanced information instead of package deals, and how insane it is that leftists consider hiring someone based on skin color rather than qualifications.

There are many learning opportunities to be gained from Russia's assault on Ukraine and from other political situations in the world today.  John flies solo today, looking at many principles we've discussed on the show over the years that are playing out now.  Reality becomes real, but not before utopians cause the loss of life and property.  The value of international guarantees is not too high.  Never choose someone to get you out of a situation when they were the one that got you into it.  An armed populace is a prepared populous.  There are many more Steel-isms included today.  A concerted effort is being waged to erode everything associated with Western civilization, including sovereignty, so beware the globalists who wish to bring it about.

Canada has enacted emergency measures, labeling the truckers as terrorists and their protest as illegal, simply because they disagree with the official government narrative. John opens the program this week asking how temporary will these emergency powers be and when will they be used in the future. He shows that the same people who for years praised the art of protesting and occupying are now insisting that the Freedom Convoy is a threat and must be stopped. It becomes nearly impossible to march in lockstep with a group of people that keeps changing directions and doesn't bother to tell you.

Meanwhile, in this country, the Senate is looking at Senate Bill 673, the Journalism Competition and Preservation Act. What is it and how will the media benefit? Back with us to discuss is Pat Wood (citizensforfreespeech.org), Executive Director of Citizens for Free Speech and Editor of Technocracy News. Failing mainstream media outlets will use this bill to poach profits from social media companies because their content is being posted online. Their business plans have failed so this is an effort to siphon off others to stay afloat. And it could end up affecting independent news.

Finally this week, we take a look at two cases of constitutional end running. First we welcome JD Tuccille (reason.com) to the program to discuss how San Jose, California is trying to get around the Second Amendment by requiring gun owners to have insurance, using private companies to do what government cannot. Then we are joined by Stephanie Taub (firstliberty.org), Senior Counsel at the First Liberty Institute, who gives an update on how Oregon is still violating Aaron and Melissa Klein's religious freedom.

Producer Steve has spent the last several weeks researching conspiracy podcasts and websites just to see what kind of information is out there and why it seems so popular. On today's podcast, Steve, John, and Carol discuss the many issues surrounding the so-called “tin foil hat” crowd. Topics include the “scam-demic” view of the virus, whether the vaccine will change your DNA, the idea that President Trump will soon be back in office, and even the belief that Adolph Hitler escaped Europe and lived out his golden years in South America. They even offer a possible explanation as to why people believe this stuff. A little outside the norm for Steel, but still one heck of an interesting episode!
