Welcome to the Tuesday edition of The Mark Steyn Show. If you're watching us in real time, immediately after today's show, Mark will be back with his old EIB comrade on Bo Snerdley's Rush Hour, live at 4pm US Eastern on New York's legendary radio powerhouse, 77 WABC.
On today's episode Mark talks to Liam Walsh about the loss of his daughter to TikTok. Liam believes that the death of young Maia is not just a personal tragedy for his family, but the result of a conscious targeting of western adolescents by the Chinese company.
China expert Gordon Chang returns to the show to address that question. TikTok is now the world's Number One website, yet it is unavailable in China - because Chairman Xi does not want it doing to Chinese children what it does to western ones. Mark and Gordon talk about the CCP's weaponisation of everything it has - and whether it will lead to an actual shooting war.
Our Stats Man Jamie Jenkins is also on hand to analyse how our youth bore the brunt of government's disastrous lockdown policies - and the psychological damage inflicted on a generation.
