What is “The System”?
One definition, according to Merriam-Webster

“a regularly interacting or interdependent group of items forming a unified whole”

Another, according to Oxford:

“The prevailing political or social order, especially when regarded as oppressive and intransigent.”

“The System,” to me, is a group of organizations that are part of a larger whole. They may exist separately, but they all work together towards the same end goal. Law enforcement, the legal system, the prison industrial complex..these are just some of the multitude of organizations we’re addressing. It is my belief, and the reason for this podcast, that the end goal is the continued, systematic enslavement of society.

About Surviving the System

About Surviving The System Surviving The System is a podcast created to shed light on the hypocrisy and injustice of “the system” in our nation today. I founded this podcast after first hand experience of how the system works – the shady tactics by law enforcement, the blatant disregard for the law by the legal system, the ever increasing attempts to crush the human spirit by the prison industrial complex and so called “re-entry” efforts. All of it appearing to be designed to keep people beat down, with no opportunity to learn and grow from their past mistakes.

Since my experience with the system, I’ve learned that things are almost never cut and dry, right or wrong. So called “criminals” are some of the most compassionate, talented and intelligent individuals this world has to offer. On the flip side, there are some people who appear to lead the perfect life are all too often miserable human beings who are simply better at hiding their crimes from the rest of the world.

My goal by starting Surviving The System is to reach as many people as possible who have been through the system, or are currently going through the system, and remind them that they are not defined by their worst mistake!

You are a being of incredible power who has been conditioned by the system to forget. You can have the life you want, you can be the person you’ve always wanted to be. Throw off the shackles and remember who you are!
