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.

There is so much flipping and flopping on issues today, it's enough to make a person dizzy. In this week's boralogue, John looks at postmodernist history and why they don't seem to mind changing course on an issue. To them, reality is based on feelings and perceptions, which means words and laws and rules don't have concrete meaning. There are no moral standards, but sooner or later reality becomes real and people will need to think clearly. Today's youth haven't been taught how to do that, so many are lashing out, causing chaos around the country and inconsistently asserting their opinion on important issues.
