The narrative currently pushed by some in this country is that the United States is awful and racist and there is oppression against certain groups of people. On today's podcast, John looks at several examples of oppression around the world. Iran just executed a protestor without due process. The ancient Aztecs enslaved surrounding tribes. Oppression has been the norm of history, even in some parts of the world today. Overcoming it, like the United States has done, is unique. Our values led us to eliminate slavery and advocate for equality of all people. So this ‘America is an oppressor' narrative is patently and historically false. For us to survive, truth must prevail.
