If truth is no longer revered and social media has changed people's values, then what is the cultural impact? It feels like we're living through a new kind of science fiction movie. It may not be as sexy as a blockbuster Hollywood movie, and while it may be more pernicious, it certainly feels like a new type of dystopia. Today on the SpIritual Spiral, I touch on the news media's coverage of Colin Powell's death and the drama surrounding Alec Baldwin. I also talk about the impact social media has made on people's values. If follower counts and likes is more meaningful than friendship, family and community, how does this shift in values affect our society. I also end the show with a brand new song off of my new record. The song is called Be the Flame and it's available now on Spotify and all streaming platforms.
