Podcast: Doing The Right Thing–An Exploration of Ethics


David Carlson

Fake news, sex trafficking and #MeToo, corporate corruption, violence, soaring debts, the opioid crisis. It’s fair to say that now, in 2019, America has a moral crisis, or to put it another way, an ethical crisis.

Back in 2011, in the wake of the Great Recession and financial crisis, Chuck Colson and Princeton Professor Robert George combined to produce a 6-part video series on ethics called, “Doing the Right Thing.” They enlisted the help of Fox News contributor Brit Hume and gathered panels of scholars, theologians, business and government leaders on the campus of Princeton University to discuss America’s crisis of ethics in every sphere of public life—in government, education, and the market place.

Today on the BreakPoint podcast, we present episode 1, “How Did We Get into This Mess?”  This, and all the episodes of “Doing the Right Thing” were filmed in front of a student audience. Each session ends with the panel taking questions from the students.

The Doing the Right Thing DVD Series as well as small group study guides are available at our online bookstore.
