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.
Despite constant promotion for and adoption of critical race theory policies, teachers unions are now publicly washing their hands of the theory. Any mention of CRT has been erased from the NEA website. Lindsey Curnutte (heritageaction.com), Press Secretary for Heritage Action for America, joins us today to talk about it and to promote Heritage's new e-book on how to combat critical race theory, which you can find at crtbook.com. Now that parents are waking up to the dangers of CRT, they need to stay awake and stay diligent.
We notice that freedoms are starting to erode in the United States, but how are the other countries in the Westersphere faring? We begin this week by looking at a couple of stories from our neighbors to the north. Joining us is Christine Douglass-Williams (frontpagemag.com), Associate Editor at FrontPage Magazine and current Canadian citizen. She looks at Bill C10 which would limit private user's speech online if the government doesn't approve of it. She also examines how two people have been arrested simply for attending a church in Ontario Province that defied lockdown orders and held a service. Backlash is building in Canada, but is it too little too late?
We then turn our attention to Australia where John was a guest on Joshua Ferrara's podcast recently. The two discuss the importance of worldviews and the friction caused by Marxist thinking and tactics. They also look at how Australia is handling political correctness and methods employed by leftists against conservatives who won't put up with the woke agenda. Totalitarianism doesn't happen all at once; it occurs gradually over time. It's important to spot the increments and stop it before it's too late.
John finds himself as a guest on another podcast, this time Down Under on Joshua Ferrara's show in Australia. They discuss a number of topics, including the importance of worldviews, the division and friction caused by Marxist thinking and tactics, and how to stand up against persecution. John also explains the devious tactic used when conservatives complain about what Marxists are doing and are then subsequently labeled as racist or something else. Fascinating conversation!
Why is it that the division and rancor is so great today but a few decades ago, it wasn't nearly as bad? In the second of our post-election shows, John takes a look at the differences between then and now in terms of commonality of worldviews. We didn't get here overnight; it took years to create the divide.
How did we get to the point where this country is as incredibly divided as we are today? There are two sides coming from two completely different worldview foundations – traditional values vs socialism. In today's boralogue, John looks at the progressive changes in our education system over the past century that have led to the deep division we see today. Religion, patriotism, capitalism, private property, and sovereignty have been removed from education, replaced by socialism and globalism. Children who have been exposed to this now hold on to one worldview foundation, warring against those who champion traditional values. Our education system has been poisoned and a divisive America is the result.
In today's premium boralogue, John asks the question: do we really want to go through secession or another Civil War again? We have crossed a dangerous barrier away from personal freedom to only being able to think or say that which the government approves. In order to deescalate the growing tension, people should stop trying to enshrine their beliefs into law in order to punish another group of people who don't believe as they do. This country was founded on freedom. And it should stay that way!
