Capitalism needs certain structures for it to run effectively, but it seems like the nation doesn’t necessarily agree on what constitutes infrastructure. For the Republicans, the proposed infrastructure bill is nothing but a government spending spree. For the Democrats, it is critical not only for facility buildup, but also job-creation. What we ha…
 
The American press conference is one of the sought-out activities by the general public for its subtle surprises. Every word and punctuation mark from President Joe Biden will be labeled to everyone's ears. While that sounds collectively obedient, not everyone listens to affirm, it may be that they are waiting for a slip of tongue to amplify and cr…
 
We were taught not to dirty the environment. However, as we proceeded to grow and progress, we gradually slipped from our original promises to our surroundings. Losing our environmental responsibilities has extended our shortcoming to the point that we are no longer in the prevention phase of our cleaning obligations. In this discussion, Bill Stier…
 
Every action and every deed as a politician is etched into people's minds. Realism tells us that people will only recall the wrong and immoral bits in every situation, even if you are still in the process of facing mistakes. Is there such a conventional way to conveniently handle and own up to the mistake? In this episode, Bill Stierle and Tom disc…
 
Society's overall moral high ground is like a goalpost that constantly moves from one place to another throughout the years. Without it firmly rooted to the ground, many situations we typically consider wrong or unacceptable in the past may become tolerable today. Bill Stierle and Tom dive deep into the many possibilities of how such an ever-changi…
 
When only the soundbite matters, will America know what it actually stands for? The media so easily creates a soundbite from a sliver of truth and then spins a narrative it wants to promote, while the listeners choose which narrative best fits their biases. In this episode, Bill Stierle and Tom discuss how Ted Cruz misrepresented the American Rescu…
 
Donald Trump has resurfaced in the public eye at the CPA Conference and rolls out his greatest hits of labeling and diagnosing everyone who he sees as a threat. In this episode, Bill Stierle and Tom dive deep into Donald Trump's effective messaging and how people, particularly the Republican party, can act to take the flute out of the pied piper's …
 
Conflict creates tension. However, there’s a lot of money that can be made by offering something for sale, taking the opportunity to buy away, and then injecting the fear of missing out into a person so they buy. Although conflicts keep loyal followers close, when you’re buying and investing in an upset, there’s a big probability you won’t become a…
 
Capitalism, done the American way, has a way of messing up with people when it comes to serious supply and demand situations. We have seen this unfold during the early days of the pandemic, when the government tried to structure its messaging in such a way that people wouldn’t panic-buy masks and short the supply, which was very much needed by heal…
 
The power of media and public information is undoubtedly powerful - especially in today’s digital age - and it has all been magnified by the pandemic. As this time of hyper exposure – and hypersensitivity – will probably continue for the foreseeable future, the Republican Party is challenged to walk on media eggshells. Bill Stierle and Tom talk abo…
 
The drama of Donald Trump’s second impeachment is over and it’s interesting how the criminal courts are going to deal with the people who were responsible for the insurrection. For what it’s worth, the trial has shown two very different kinds of leadership. On the one hand, we have the Democrats under Nancy Pelosi, who are consistently missing on e…
 
Bill Stierle and Tom continue to feel disheartened as senators are clearly determined to acquit Donald Trump in the second impeachment trial at the expense of the greater good. It seems they are willing to sacrifice the truth and America's constitution for their political survival. How can America regain its integrity when trust and respect are thr…
 
As the Senate is about to commence Donald Trump’s second impeachment trial, it has become clear that the former president is willing to throw his supporters under the bus to escape culpability in the Capitol storming incident. What does Trump’s “bad apples” argument say about his leadership? In this episode, Bill Stierle and Tom discuss the leaders…
 
Most Americans like to think of themselves as ideologically-free and treat “ideology” as a dirty word that they would never apply to themselves. But the fact that there are polarities in the country over this and that issue is the strongest indication that we live and breathe ideologies. There is a silent civil war going on – one that is fought in …
 
Truth is relative, and a big part of that relativity is a person's perception. What one person believes will be relative to their beliefs about how they perceive something as true. Where this relativity starts to become dangerous is when people fail to consider the full range of truth or experiences possible in the human condition. In this episode,…
 
Is the Republican Party going to split into two factions? As recent events show, the party is certainly not in unified. The move by Arizona Republicans to censure Jeff Flake, Doug Ducey and Cindy McCain over “disloyalty” to former President Donald Trump shows just how much the party is moving in conflicting directions. Bill Stierle and Tom discuss …
 
Now that the US presidential election is over and Joe Biden finally takes the helm as chief, America shifts into its political detox phase. It may be a time to heal and unite: it is also a time of potential political amnesia.

Now that Donald Trump has lost his megaphone on social media after being censored by the big sites, his supporters in Congress ought to realize that they have to be more accountable for the soundbites they try to put forward. That’s far from being the case, however, as some of these recent examples show. If you were to listen to the hearings on Don…
 
Every one of us is entitled to more things than one, and sometimes, we take them for granted. However, falling into the depths of reverse entitlement is another topic entirely, and it may lead to uncalled actions and horrifying results. Bill Stierle and Tom look back once again to the violent riot at Capitol Hill on January 6 and how reverse entitl…
 
Just six days into the new year, the entire United States was rocked when a huge mob stormed Capitol Hill to stop the certification of presidential votes. When we follow the breadcrumbs left by this disastrous event, we may discover them leading to President Trump and his allies, all calling on people to resort to violence. However, some of his mos…
 
January 6th was the day violence erupted in the US Capital, when a mob of Donald Trump supporters charged the Capitol building. If there is one positive benefit anyone can gather from this event, it is an understanding of how powerfully our words matter. This was evident throughout Trump’s presidency, including the day that his words sparked this a…
 
When everyone thought President Donald Trump couldn't surprise us any longer we hear his recorded phone call with Georgia's Secretary of the State Brad Raffensperger. Many are flabbergasted at the length of the call and with its borderline mob boss feeling. The course of the call could have been changed (and dramatically shortened) if empathetic co…
 
Almost everyone with access to the Internet is online, relying on what is displayed on the screen for news and “facts.” Coupled with this huge shift in the way we gather news is the dissemination of fake news. After teasing listeners for a couple of episodes, Bill Stierle and Tom finally go deeply into the documentary film After Truth: Disinformati…
 
Although the news media is designed to deliver dispassionate facts to the public, ratings and viewership numbers are still rooted in emotions.

Bill Stierle and Tom sit down to dissect how disinformation is spread, e…
 
The year 2020 has been defined in large part by the COVID-19 pandemic. Despite its obvious impact on the world’s economy, health and well-being, there are still people who routinely underplay or even deny the existence of the threat. It’s an amazing testament to the selectivity of the human brain that a person can literally sit a few blocks away fr…
 
The power of repetition is in how it makes a statement look like a fact, and the same can be seen occurring when it comes to purchasing truth. When everyone around you has bought into something, no matter whether you join in or not, you can still easily be influenced by it. In this episode, Bill Stierle and Tom talk about the purchasing of truth an…
 
When statements get repeated, they get amplified and magnified, creating a larger impact than what it initially could. This is especially true and even dangerous when it comes to truth. As the quote goes, “repeat a lie often, and it becomes a truth”. Bill Stierle and Tom dive deep into how repetition keeps showing up, highlighting its power and why…

Most people don't really want the truth. They just want constant reassurance that what they believe is the truth.

Cooperative capitalism is not an oxymoron. It is something we should strive for if we are to move forward as a nation and as a people.
