After last episode’s critique of the Occupy Wall Street movement, Radio Worldview returns to the topic to discuss the sins at the root of the trouble. Host Jeff Baldwin wants to emphasize the greed of most corporate CEOs, and remind them that by insisting on finding their self-worth in pay and perks they are alienating their employees; host Bill Jack wants to emphasize the envy of the average man and its propensity to undermine excellence. In addition, our latest segment of “Roadkill Cafe” features Jeff’s worst breakfast nightmare — which Bill happily eats.

In a shocking turn of events, three of the four founders of Worldview Academy found themselves in the same room today, with time to record a podcast about a very current event: the “Occupy Wall Street” movement. Worldview Academy Executive Director Randy Sims joins hosts Bill Jack and Jeff Baldwin to discuss the biblical view of money, politics and envy. Should we be concerned about the gap between the haves and the have-nots in America? Is our economic system merely “crony capitalism”? What should the government do to help? These and other questions are discussed after a brief installment of Where the Tech Are We?
Shortly after Radio Worldview’s host Jeff Baldwin defends the honor of his favorite donut shop anywhere — Top Pot Donuts — he confesses that WVA faculty member Mark Bertrand’s newest novel Pattern of Wounds has encouraged him to read more classic mysteries.

After pontificating to co-host Bill Jack about what he’s reading now, Jeff and Bill answer a listener’s question about Just War Theory. Bill also talks about eating beet sandwiches.
