Episode Info:

As a nation, we find ourselves careening toward a certain reckoning, an undeniable state of egregious political affairs and social ills that have been generations in the making. Yet, as a nation, we by and large choose to compartmentalize these ills, as if their the sole result of today's largely turbulent and often times acrimonious digital vortex. BUT we all know these things didn't just happen out of nowhere, don't we. And surely we understand our social fabric didn't start fraying with the ascendency of Donald J. Trump to the presidency of these United States, don't we. Of course we do. Consider this: The first thing a physician does when seeking to faciitate a proper diagnosis is to inquire after the patients medical HISTORY. The first step in resolving current medical ills is to understand the history of how those ills formed in the first place. And so it is with America. While we are undoubtedly the most economically powerful and military capable nation on earth, we are nonetheless fractured and unwell. We are that family at the reunion who is uncomfortable because no one wants to be honest about the ugliness that happened to us years ago. But if we are to ever reach our promise and full potential, we must be honest about how our ills began. And our ills, America, began at this nation's very inception and are written in blood on its founding document. This is OUR AMERICA. It's a Black, White, Latino, Asian, Muslim, LGTBQ and every religion and creed you can think of America. But if we ever hope to heal our America, we need to be honest about OUR AMERICA. Thanks for listening.
