My passion is the fight for freedom. My father fought for a World War II defending our country. Today, we are no longer fighting with guns. Instead, we are fighting an ideological battle for control of our country by contributing to causes that support your constitutional rights.
I am Patriot Mobile. That was a shooting gallery up there. I could hear the tremble in his voice. She suffered a very severe being. The video is pretty graphic.
Justice for us seems almost impossible. It's not fun to watch somebody die, and they knew she was in mortal peril. They had not asked the hard questions. Why was the Capitol intentionally unsecure that day? The FBI had information about security concerns before January 6th. They're out for blood, and they're getting it. They appear to be winning. Were the actions of the Capitol Police out of line? Were there violations in use of force?
Now I describe it as an inside job. I'm ready to do whatever God calls me. There's an old Chinese saying my ancestors learned before the Communist Party took over our country. The family is the essential unit of human society, and that you must have honor and defend your family. But it's not always easy to do.
When the regime gives the order, you have to kill. My heart was pounding. I felt my body bouncing and twisting on the floor. They put numbers on our shoulders, then separated us into rows of even and odd numbers.
I was number nine. My brother, he's still in prison, and my sister, she was sent to a labor camp without a trial. But there's one piece of evidence they haven't been able to destroy yet.
I left everything behind. If I can't expose what they did to us, then all of our suffering would be for nothing. Welcome to Chosen Generation with your host, Pastor Greg Young. But you are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a peculiar people, that you should shoe forth the praises of Him who has called you out of darkness into His marvelous light, which in time past were not a people, but are now the people of God, which had not obtained mercy, but now have obtained mercy. And now, Chosen Generation, where no topic is off limits and everything is filtered through biblical glasses. And now, here's your host, Pastor Greg. And welcome back to Chosen Generation Radio, where no topic is off limits and everything filtered through biblical glasses. I'm your host, Pastor Greg.
Thanks so much for being with me. Hour number two, if you missed any parts of our first hour, you can pick that up. We'll have video of that up in the show archives and do want to encourage you to watch our first half hour with Nikki Baldwin.
Had a great conversation with Nikki. You'll be able to pick that up. And then our last conversation with Laurie Furstenberg and just talking about DC in particular. But the lack of moral foundation and its significant impact and effect on crime and on what's happening in our culture today.
And in particular, the horrific assault that's happening against our kids to destroy their conscience and their innocence. So anyway, you can pick all that up. I'm very pleased to welcome my next guest to the program. And as I said, at the top of the program, a subject that I'm not extremely familiar with the specific term. But do understand the concept of this overreach, if you will.
And then the merging of technology with that overreach. Let me welcome to the program, Josh Witkowski. He is the founder of XLN Services. Josh, welcome. Good to have you. Thank you very much for having me.
Absolutely. You know, let's let's really quickly, we got about 20 minutes here. But let's really quickly, first of all, talk to me about XLN Services, what that's about and and and what you are, what you're engaged in. So XLN Services is my firm. We are grassroots and government consulting government affairs type work. I've been working with grassroots groups for about 20 years.
And for about the last 10 or 11. I've been working with an organization called Abate of Illinois. I'm a member of that organization. It is a state motorcycle rights organization.
There are several of these in every state that you go to, we meet nationally once a year. And I've been I'm also a motorcycle safety instructor. So I've been very engaged on the issues of motorcycles and how they fit into the future of transportation particularly. And I do deal quite a bit with Vision Zero stuff.
Okay. How does Vision Zero impact because we're talking about vehicles and and and vehicular travel in cities and communities, correct? So how does Vision Zero what what, what began this concept? What how did this thing get started? So Vision Zero started in Sweden. And if you look up the term Vision Zero, that's where it comes from. It comes from Sweden.
Okay. And they started this was late 90s. I want to say it was. And the idea is to lead to a road with zero traffic fatalities. That's how it gets the name Vision Zero. I think we can all agree, nobody likes traffic fatalities, we all want safer roads, nobody's going to disagree with that.
But the methodology they're using is a little suspect. So Sweden started this with with Vision Zero. It got adopted in the United States as road to zero. The US Department of Transportation, National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, both adopted it as road to zero, and they started kind of really working with it mid 2010s give or take early, you know, 2010 2011 2012.
Okay. So the the premise is zero fatalities. But the methodology they want to use requires a great deal of infrastructure investment.
And not only that, it's going to require a great deal of changes in American behavior is just the way that I think I would put it. It starts out with this premise of zero fatalities. Well, the only way to assure zero fatalities perfectly is that nobody ever drives, nobody ever goes anywhere. Now, obviously, that's not going to happen. Okay, correct. Then they start talking about, well, the first thing you need to do is make it really, really urgent.
If you go to their website, it says, right, it says right off the bat, says highest ranking local officials should set a goal to achieve zero traffic fatalities and severe injuries among all road users, which includes by the way, pedestrians, bicyclists, all that within a set timeframe to create a sense of urgency. Okay, so you create your own crisis to start out with, rather than looking at what's actually happening on a transportation system. Sounds like a salt sounds like a Saul Alinsky tactic, right? You know, sort of a Marxist, create chaos, and then you pretend to be the one that has the solution to solve the chaos.
Sort of, yeah. I mean, it's not far from that kind of ideal. You know, you create the crisis, and then here's our solutions to solve the crisis. We all agree, traffic fatalities are a bad thing. We should be approaching a way to reduce fatalities on our roadways. But when you set this unattainable goal of zero, which is, it's literally, it's Lucy holding the football.
Oh, this doesn't work. We got to crack down on the next thing. Now we got to crack down on the next thing.
Now we got to crack down on the next thing. I represent motorcyclists. We represent about 14, well, over the last four years, we're about 12 and a half percent of fatalities on the road. What we do, look, motorcycles, we don't have a cage around us to take the impact. So we're at higher risk for injury. We're at higher risk for fatalities.
Well, and visibility. I mean, people driving cars are not necessarily looking for motorcycles. They're not motorcycle aware.
And there are laws. I mean, I know I've heard people complain, you know, well, you know, we were all, you know, in a traffic jam, and that motorcycle just went flying right by right down the middle of the road, right? Well, that that's actually the law that that that's that is intentional, because the motorcycle driver in a traffic situation like that is more exposed than the guy driving in the car. So laws have been created to get the motorcycle driver out of that situation by allowing them to be able to drive down the center in between the cars, or in other states, it's on the shoulder. But yeah, there is some sort of allowance for that.
Right. But yeah, it's, but the point being is, okay, where does a motorcycle fit into Vision Zero? Because the easiest way to achieve Vision Zero is to tell us you can't be on the roadway anymore.
Well, I was gonna ask you, Josh, yeah, I was gonna I was gonna ask you when he so, so now what you've done is, is you've you've you've created, I'm thinking in my head, you've created this unattainable goal, or this goal, whatever you are, you want to look at it. But now you're going to, because it's just like being an employer, right? You know, you, you create an employee handbook, not for the people that are going to try to help you get where you want to go, but for the guys that are going to step out of line or try to do things that are going to be counterproductive to your company. But in this instance, you've created a counterproductive environment right off the bat. And now you're going to create a handbook that that's going to try to squeeze people in what I mean, I can't even in my mind, imagine what so you already know, don't run red lights, right?
You know, don't don't don't speed. I mean, I don't know what what other rules are they are they wanting to implement and who and who enforces those rules? What are the houses work? So one of the biggest things that Vision Zero talks about these days is changing the way infrastructure is laid out. An example of this is starting to happen in the city of Chicago, where they're looking at installing concrete barricades alongside city streets, blocking them off from bicycle paths. Okay.
So that's a physical kind of old school way of they're trying to keep bicyclists safe from cars, hitting them crossing over the line into bicycle paths. Okay. Okay. Well, the flip side of that is what happens if a car veers and now hits this barricade and then careens off across the other two lanes. For every solution you create, there's another potential problem. Well, sure. It's it's the pebble in the pond that that that you know, that that these people tend to consistently forget about, you know, you you create you say, Well, I'm, I'm doing this and and I'm doing it off over here in my little corner, my little my little side of the pond, not realizing that anything you drop into that pond creates a ripple and its impact and its effect is across the entire length and width of the surface of the water.
Yeah. And the issue becomes, it becomes more of a governmental issue. You have people who get involved in this that have a very specific agenda, rather than looking at traffic as a holistic approach, rather than looking at the entire system. They're looking at their little corner of it and they try to promote their little corner of it or their vision of it.
And a perfect example. So on the national level, in 2020, from 2016 to about 2020, Road to Zero had the National Safety Council, NTSB, NHTSA, they were working on this together. Two national motorcycle groups that represent us, the road users, the Motorcycle Riders Foundation and the American Motorcycle Association were at every single meeting except for one.
And when the final report was published, they didn't even get acknowledged as ever having been there. And then when they went and complained and said, Hey, you know, we were a part of this all along, the response back was, well, we invite you to create your own motorcycle safety plan. Well, if you're going to include everybody, you're going to say, hey, we're on this road to zero, it says you're supposed to include stakeholders and users. But if our answers don't match their predetermined conclusions, then you know, we just get thrown out of the mix. And that's where part of the issue is coming in. And it breeds distrust between the road users who need to hear the message of safety, and the organizations who are promoting it by adopting this unrealistic goal of zero. It just breeds distrust.
Sure, sure. Well, and again, it just I mean, it sounds like you're you're you're creating a problem. You know, what are the statistics?
I mean, what, what are we talking about relative? I mean, I know that there are traffic accidents and accidents on the roadway. But but give me a sense, you know, of what kind of a do we do we have a a vehicular crisis that we're that we're going through right now? I don't know if it's a crisis, but there's definitely a change that's occurring in terms of how collisions are happening. And it is something that does need to be addressed.
distracted driving has gotten completely out of hand is causing almost more fatalities than alcohol impairment now. You know, technology again, yeah, that thing right there. But what do you do? Do you say, Hey, you know, we're going to tell the cell phone companies if the cell phones moving at greater than 55 miles an hour, it won't work?
Well, people aren't going to go for that. So how do you mitigate that? How do you mitigate distracted driving? Another issue that's out there and you know, you talk about technology and that is this testing of driverless vehicles. Tesla currently has in the field 750,000 vehicles that people purchased that either have full service driving beta, or they have something called autopilot. autopilot is currently being investigated for 17 fatalities, four of which are motorcyclists. They've run over three motorcycles from behind at highway speed. Yeah, and it's something that we've warned about for five years, right? But nobody seems to want to be serious about looking at this and say, Hey, you know what, you know, you know, I had to pass a test to get on the roadway. Yeah, but these autonomous systems don't.
And that's a problem. Well, your other problem, Josh, that then I would think about is and and for anybody who's ever used GPS, and I can't imagine today that anybody doesn't write in some way. My wife likes to use something called ways. That's her favorite.
That's her favorite app. I've always used like a Google map or something like that. But at any rate, you know, I mean, I drive down in San Antonio, and I'm going to tell you right now, using ways and Google Maps, you will get lost in San Antonio driving around there.
I seriously number one, there's so much construction that's constantly going on. There's constantly some kind of a detour that's happening down there. And and the GPS just playing doesn't seem to want I don't know what they're I don't know what the interference is.
I don't know what the but it doesn't work. And so you're literally it will take you I have had situations where I've driven for two hours and done nothing but go in circles for just following the GPS. And so if AI is dependent on some preconceived notion of what those roads are supposed to look like, where's that even come from? Because the reality is, the road doesn't look like it. So on most of them, it's supposed to come from mapping that's on board.
But the other problem you mentioned that the communications issue, right? So we've got crews testing fully driverless taxis in the San Francisco area. Okay. Wait for it.
I'm sorry. Oh, far blocked emergency vehicles when they've shut down and lost communication. locals who hate the things have found out that if you throw a traffic cone on their hood, you can force them to shut down. There were 10 of them that shut down simultaneously blocking off several major roads in San Fran, because they lost connection with the cell phone network due to a music festival that was playing in the area.
Sure. Um, it we had one stop in the middle of a left turn because a bag went across the front a plastic bag blew in front of it. And so it stopped.
Oh, my gosh. So you want to talk Vision Zero. And there is a possibility of technology helping this down the road. But when you're putting out unproven technology, it's creating very public failures. It again, continues to breed distrust.
Now, I will say NHTSA for their part, I had a meeting with NHTSA two weeks ago today, oddly enough, okay. And they are serious about trying to actively engage stakeholders, which is good. But when you have these lofty things out here, like road to zero, Vision Zero, and you're talking about, you know, hey, we're going to commit to this, but you're not addressing things quickly. It doesn't lead to the best of trust. And you have to have that trust, you have to have stakeholders, and creating a false emergency is not the way to do that. And that is the biggest problem with Vision Zero, is it creates an unobtainable goal, and it creates a emergency that can never be solved, unless you're willing to drastically change the way we do travel in America. Well, it also this is just kind of popping into my head as we're talking about this, it also seems to me that it creates a further you mentioned about working with grassroots groups, grassroots groups predominantly are about liberty, about freedom, about, you know, getting government out of our lives, less government and more freedom for the people. It sounds to me like what this is doing is creating a greater platform, an entrance platform for more government intervention, because, you know, as much as the hearts of NISV might be good, and everybody wants to do the right thing here, at the end of the day, you have an element within government that is going to say, okay, everything else has failed now.
Now we're going to come in and we're and we're gonna, we're gonna run this, we're gonna do this. You unfortunately do have some of those people involved in traffic safety. One of the easier ways to point it out, just here locally, so I live in Springfield, I live in the capital of Illinois, we've got a small community that we kind of surround called Leland Grove, they had a mayor who her idea in part of Vision Zero and to try to reduce traffic cutting through their town was to put these large speed humps in and to restrict the speed to 15 miles per hour down these roads. And I've seen other communities do this too. And you know what it ends up doing? It ends up tearing up suspensions on vehicles. It ends up causing people to avoid towns all together.
I actually encountered it again, out in Pennsylvania, and in New Jersey. Yeah. And it's, it's not viable, but it's one person who takes their vision of what they think needs to be done. And then enacts a very authoritarian type of control here.
Right. And that's what this can do when it's misused. Well, and again, you know, any any time as as I said, you know, going back to the employee handbook analogy, right, you know, that the you put those things in place to try to mitigate against, you know, bad behavior, but ultimately, and and our and our founders said this about laws, you know, good laws are only fit for good people. Bad people don't pay attention to good laws. They don't pay attention to laws period. And that's the other side to this, Josh is, is we are breeding right now, within our culture, a lawlessness and a concept of of no consequences.
No, no personal responsibility whatsoever. And and we're giving the bad guys free rein. It's interesting that you mentioned that, because one of the things that is part of Vision Zero, I mentioned, you know, it focuses kind of on infrastructure. It originally focused on drivers. Back in 2015, they actually put a statement out about forcing drivers to slow down to minimum speed impacts. Their proposal was 19 miles an hour when a vehicle is around car pedestrian and 43 miles per hour anywhere else. So that was the personal side of it. But these days, they are focusing more on, hey, look, a driver is going to make mistakes.
We need to make the overall infrastructure basically safer to have collisions. And the question is, at what cost? Wow. Yeah, yeah, yeah. Wow. Wow. Wow. Wow. Well, we will follow it.
Now. You said you're with Abate Illinois, A-B-A-T-E, right? If you want to learn more about it, it's A-B-A-T-E hyphen I-L dot org. That's the organization I represent. My company is Excel and services.
