From the Mandalorian’s Gina Carano to everyday citizens, Americans are becoming uncomfortably aware of just how easy it is to be canceled. What can we do about it? Vivek is a brilliant legal mind and serial entrepreneur who has done the heavy lifting for us! Not only are we protected from being fired for holding non woke viewpoints on political and social issues, but we can also defend ourselves against the actions of the woke mob.

The Biblical, moral view of life is being completely pushed out of our culture. If we allow the demonization of Christians to go unchallenged, the ability to disagree with civility, and freedom of speech and conscience is dead.
