Most of us, when formulating an opinion or perspective about a cultural issue tend to look at one side of the story – myself included. But if we have any chance of making societal and cultural changes that actually improve our way of life, it’s crucial that we look at what we see from all sides.

 

That’s what my guest today, Brandon Tatum, and I talk about – seeing problems from all angles and waiting for all the information before formulating opinions. We cover the Kyle Rittenhouse and Ahmaud Arbery cases, the dangers of the “Defund the Police” movement and what, if any reform in policing is needed, whether or not systemic racism actually exists, our emotions and our responses to them, use of force laws, and so much more.

 

SHOW HIGHLIGHTS:

  • Online vs. offline conversations
  • Context is often lacking, or overlooked, in online posts
  • There are ALWAYS two sides to every story
  • Young men must learn to harness their masculinity
  • People have had to die so that we can have conversations about equality
  • You WANT to face adversity, so that you can become better
  • You choose how you view any situation
  • Double standards in race and politics
  • Pressures of being a black police officer
  • We’re in a police depression
  • Room for improvement in law enforcement
  • If something sounds crazy…do more research
  • Never make a decision after hearing only one side of an argument

We all know how dangerous ideology can be and, yet, some of the most destructive ideas tend to be the most pervasive in society. Why is that? And, how do these parasitic ideas spread so effectively?

 

My guest today is evolutionary psychologist and author of The Parasitic Mind: How infectious Ideas are Killing Common Sense, Gad Saad. Today, Gad and I discuss his guiding principles: truth and freedom, what he refers to as the “Holy Trinity of Bullshit,” the dangers of post-modernism, the other deadly sin most people don’t talk about, the woke mob’s desire to eliminate culture and history, and how to use your voice against these dangerous ideologies.

 

SHOW HIGHLIGHTS:

 

  • The importance of telling the hard truth
  • Postmodernism is a form of intellectual terrorism
  • The idea pathogen of social constructivism
  • Life is about tradeoffs
  • The distinction between feeling and thinking
  • Using the lexicographic rule in politics
  • Sifting through all of the information we have available
  • Don’t set out to offend, but be willing to offend
  • The more things change, the more they stay the same
  • Choosing what is worth pursuing
  • The attacks on truth are relentless
  • Most people lack the courage to use their voice
  • Walk through life like a honey badger

It’s no surprise that the family court system is stacked against men. Millions of men are, quite literally, fighting for their rights and the rights of their children. But I don’t think most men, unless you’ve fallen prey to the courts, know just how deep and deceitful it is.

 

Today, I am once again joined by Greg Ellis, the author of The Respondent: Exposing the Cartel of Family Law. He shares with me his story of how, after 20 years of marriage, he found himself incarcerated based on false accusations from his ex-wife, how he has been fighting for his children, the deep corruption inside Family Law, how fatherhood is in the crosshairs of culture, and what he’s been doing to expose the truth.

 

SHOW HIGHLIGHTS:

 

  • The joy is in the journey, not the destination
  • Corruption in the family court system
  • Both men and women can be good and evil
  • The solution is being truthful
  • Are you adding to the noise by listening to it?
  • Judiciary involved in child trafficking
  • Greatest threat to western civilization is the breakdown of the family
  • The burden of living grief
  • Moral hypocrisy

Extreme violence is something not all of us are likely to face, and that’s a good thing. But that doesn’t mean it can’t happen at the drop of a hat. And, in that moment, it is significantly better to be prepared and aware of what could happen than to be ignorant to it completely.

And, that is where my guest today, Doug Marcaida, comes in. He is a martial artist, edge-weapons specialist, and knife designer. And, he is one of the judges on the extremely popular History Channel show, Forged in Fire.

Today we talk about creating a home as a safe environment for your family, the culture of violence, martial arts and their efficacy, curbing the beast inside of us all, the concept of “verbal judo,” and ultimately how to temper violence though skill and familiarity.

 

SHOW HIGHLIGHTS:

 

  • Making home the safe place for your kids
  • You don’t have to be like your parents
  • Finding comfort in the practice of martial arts
  • The predators are always armed
  • Make your fear your strength
  • We are armed all the time
  • You should not take martial arts to become violent
  • Using martial marts to transition from the military
  • We have to weigh our principles 
  • Deescalate by using humor
