Santayana said, “Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it.” There is plenty of history, and even current events, that We, the American people, should remember. If not, we will be condemned to repeat the tyranny we refuse to learn from.

Today, I talk with two people who can provide some insights into where America is going. First, Dr. Ming Wang will tell us what it was like growing up in Communist China during the Cultural Revolution. Dr. Wang describes life without freedom, without rights, and without opportunity. Then I talk with Cathi Chamberlain about her reporting of what has been going on in Australia. The question is, are these a preview of what America will look like in the coming years?

In this episode of THE MENTORS RADIO, host Tom Loarie interviews guest mentor Dr. Ming Wang, M.D., Ph.D., a man who transitioned from facing deportation to rural China for a life of hard labor in his native country where he grew up, to making in to the United States - by the slimmest of chances. In the U.S., Ming received an M.D. from Harvard, magna cum laude, and a Ph.D. in laser physics from MIT. Now a world-renown, multi-award-winning eye surgeon, Nashville, Tennessee-based Dr. Wang has never forgotten his roots.

As the storm of perhaps the most polarizing election in our nation’s history begins to wane, in its wake we are left with the wreckage of hyperpolarization and distrust among fellow Americans.

What have we become as people in this, the greatest country on earth?
