My guest today needs no introduction. His name is Ben Shapiro and he is likely one of the most polarizing guests that I’ve had on since we started podcasting 6 years ago. But regardless of what you may think about him and his stances on the world’s most pressing concerns, these are exactly the types of challenging conversations we should be having.

Today, we cover a lot of ground including Ben’s new book, The Authoritarian Moment: How the Left Weaponized America’s Institutions Against Dissent. We also discuss the shifting Overton Window in politics, using logic over feelings to create solutions, why many people are “too nice” and losing the cultural battle, and where one needs to draw the line on government overreach.

 

SHOW HIGHLIGHTS:

 

  • Most Americans don’t feel comfortable saying what they want to say
  • Most corporations want to avoid controversy
  • People in the middle tend to cave to the louder side
  • The left has overshot their mark
  • Social media rewards the most radical
  • The problem with broadly defining problems
  • We have to play by the rules we have agreed upon
  • The Federal government has grown beyond its intended size
  • Potential inciting incidents that could lead to permanent fragmentation
  • How do we shift the tides in culture and society

The world (and our social media accounts) are flooded with a false sense of bravado, machismo, and the “alpha” mentality from men who, when you peel back the layers, are dealing with some very difficult and challenging experiences and struggles.

Unfortunately, many of them have never learned to deal with these experiences head on and end up doing a lot of mental and emotional damage to themselves and others along the way.

My guest today, is Jason Wilson, the author of Battle Cry: Waging and Winning the War Within. Today, Jason and I discuss why men have a hard time addressing and dealing with these wounds, the difference between being worried and being concerned, his own experiences with unhealed trauma, what it means to be a comprehensive man, a four-part framework for mastering your emotions, and how you can and should embrace in your inner lion and lamb.

 

SHOW HIGHLIGHTS

 

  • The world needs the lion and the lamb
  • No such thing as negative emotions
  • Mastering your emotions
  • It’s ok for men to release through tears
  • Worrying is different than concern
  • The importance of staying in the moment
  • The difference between being assertive and being aggressive
  • Admiring the strength of women
  • Ruling your own emotions allows you to communicate better

Needless to say, there has been a tremendous amount of turmoil and division in America over the past several years. This isn’t new in the history of the United States but it seems to me that we, as citizens, are more divided than we’ve ever been on a myriad of issues from foreign policy, to COVID restrictions and mandates, to gun legislation and healthcare, and everywhere in between.


And, my guest today has a lot to say about these issues and more. And, not ironically, I’m sure people will be very divided on this conversation as well. His name is Representative Dan Crenshaw, a former Navy SEAL and Representative for the state of Texas. Today, we discuss the new COVID measures announced by President Biden last week, foreign affairs and the threat of terrorism (including everything happening in Afghanistan right now), why our emotional responses to these issues are getting us into trouble and putting us in danger, and why we all need to be more informed rather than ignorant on the most pressing issues of today.

 

SHOW HIGHLIGHTS:

 

  • Discussing the government response to COVID
  • Balancing being empathetic with being rational
  • Why get into politics and how does it change people
  • Thoughts on leaving Afghanistan - what is an acceptable cost?
  • Most people have not known war for 20 years, they have known peace
  • Biden got lucky that the Taliban took over so quickly
  • The proper way to look at healthcare
  • We need more confidence in our arguments

Increasingly, it seems to be that we’re losing much of the common sense that we, collectively, once possessed. Common sense has been replaced with quick sounds bites, “clapbacks” on social media, and manufactured outraged designed to drive clicks and capture eyeballs and attention.

 

But my guest today is using his voice, social media, and any other platform available to share his common sense, rational approach to some of the world’s most pressing concerns. His name is Zuby and I know many of you are already very familiar with his work. Today, we talk about the dangers of tribalism, the motives and intentions of our government overlords and elites, how to have real conversations that actually drive change, why empathy is crucial in dialogue, and how to recapture common sense in uncommon times.

 

SHOW HIGHLIGHTS:

 

  • You can only do so much thinking by yourself
  • There are three ways to solve any conflict
  • Effective communication is a super power
  • We’re all susceptible to group think
  • What it means to live in a free society
  • Fear and anxiety shuts down rational thinking
  • The importance of understanding the perspectives of other people
  • Focus the conversation on where we agree, rather than disagree
  • Don’t fall for media propaganda
  • The bias is often hidden in what people “don’t” say
  • Being wrong is different than lying
  • Everybody is a moral monster to someone else
