All of us agree that the currently political system isn’t working, regardless of where we sit on the political divide. With the federal government consolidating and amassing power, it’s increasingly difficult to see how they’re serving the people instead of the beast it’s become.
But what is the answer? Is there a solution that moves us closer to what America’s founding fathers had envisioned nearly 250 years ago. My guest today, Max Borders, joins us to talk about the concepts in his newest book, Underthrow: How Jefferson’s Dangerous Ideas Will Spark a New Revolution. We talk about what it truly means to be free, the idea of a “national divorce,” where socialized services work and where they go too far, the power of decentralization, how innovation is act of subversion, and the difference between and overthrow and an underthrow to change the world.
“The more we try to impose blanket policies…on everyone, the more we conflict with each other.” Tweet That— Max Borders

Gents, the Iron Council is officially open for enrollment. Many of you know what the thousand plus members are doing inside the Iron Council to grow in every aspect of their lives.
But if you’re unfamiliar with what we’re doing, let me shed some light. We’re having focused, directed conversations to drive growth, structured accountability to ensure you’re hitting the goals you identify for yourself, and powerful networking so you can build out your own band of brothers of high-caliber men.
This is a powerful testimony from Jose Vela: Since joining the IC, I have become a better man than ever before. All my life, I was raised by my mother and sister and never had the male role model in my life and raised myself to be what I thought a man should be. Now I’ve learned with the brotherhood, how much information and learning curves I’ve never experienced and not be what society wants us to be. I’ve learned why I was overweight most of my life and becoming the athlete I always wanted to be, not to be passive anymore with pleasing others, deal with the bad and standing my ground for myself but most importantly finally have plenty of male role models to look up to. I AM ABLE TO FOCUS ON ME FOR THE FIRST TIME EVER!!!
