MOVING FORWARD: Gen Z and The American Dream, Hate Speech Hypocrisy, First Step Act, and Tax Cuts and Jobs Act

This week on Moving Forward, the Young Voices radio show, we hear from contributors Juan Pablo Villasmil, Jonas Du, Sarah Anderson, and Jon Hartley.

When Gen Z hears the words "The American Dream" they have a different reaction than earlier generations. Juan P. Villasmil says he believes in the American dream but it won't likely be around for his children to inherit.

The left has been targeting what it calls "hate speech" for many years now. Jonas Du warns that hate speech hypocrisy is on full display on college campuses following the events of Oct 7.

Criminal justice reform is a top of mind subject in this election year. Sarah Anderson explains why the First Step program may be a winning political strategy for 2024.

With many sectors of the American economy wheezing along on life support, now is a good time to remember that the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act enacted in 2018 did what it promised. Jon Hartley shares how the Act spurred investment and hiring.
