Do you feel the muzzle clamping around your freedom of speech? Yeah, so do we. Rage Against Dystopia started as an Instagram dumping ground for host Tony Merkel, and has now become his personal mission to build a free speech show without the algorithmic aid of the "big tech" overlords. As a Fringe FM exclusive show, join Tony as he takes the world in which we find ourselves living in and projects where it is all heading as a dystopian futurist.close
Surviving The System is a podcast created to shed light on the hypocrisy and injustice of “the system” in our nation today. Dave founded this podcast after first hand experience of how the system works – the shady tactics by law enforcement, the blatant disregard for the law by the legal system, the ever increasing attempts to crush the human spirit by the prison industrial complex and so called “re-entry” efforts. All of it appearing to be designed to keep people beat down, with no opportunity to learn and grow from their past mistakes.
Things are almost never cut and dry, right or wrong. So called “criminals” are some of the most compassionate, talented and intelligent individuals this world has to offer. On the flip side, there are some people who appear to lead the perfect life are all too often miserable human beings who are simply better at hiding their crimes from the rest of the world.
My goal by starting Surviving The System is to reach as many people as possible who have been through the system, or are currently going through the system, and remind them that they are not defined by their worst mistake!You can have the life you want, you can be the person you’ve always wanted to be. Throw off the shackles and remember who you are!
