The Successful Mind Podcast - Full Throttle Thursday - Breaking Down "The System"

The Successful Mind Podcast – Episode 507 – Full Throttle Thursday – Breaking Down “The System”

America is a relatively young nation, going on its 250th year of becoming a free nation in a few years. However, for the first time in history, the United States could be destroyed. There are kids who have never learned the history of what this country has gone through—because they’re trying to erase that history in schools.

Abraham Lincoln talked about how the United States would not come down by some foreign oppressor or attack. It would come down from within. If we give up our Bill of Rights or Constitutional rights, we are absolutely not going to get that back—and that’s scary.

Recently, Tom McDonald released a rap song called “The System,” which I think perfectly explains what’s going on in the world today. Everything that’s going on is a distraction designed to get people to react and hyper-react to everything. It’s all designed to get us pick a side and fight its opposition. As long as society remains distracted, we can’t come together. We can’t find out what we have in common or work together to build and create the society we really want. 

In this episode, BT and I discuss:


    • How society is being taken from one catastrophe to the next, which is causing people to become extraordinarily divided—and that’s not by accident; it’s by plan
    • How people are getting so emotional about what they think is a problem, that they don’t actually see that they’re being manipulated
    • How the distractions keep us polarized—and that’s the real problem
    • How people are given the illusion of choice 
    • Tom McDonald’s background as a former professional wrestler from Canada who battled with alcoholism and became a rapper after the pandemic—and today he’s not afraid to take on difficult conversations or topics


I encourage you to listen to the lyrics of Tom McDonald’s song, because he talks about this “system” that we’re all a part of. Upon first glance, he looks scary and intimidating. However, I was astonished at how well he nailed the problem.
