Ben Pauling – How To Navigate and Overcome the Evil That Pervades Our Society Through Storytelling

Ben Pauling is a writer, director, and actor. He is known for his new film Dream (2023), which highlights the issues of child trafficking in America.

In this episode, the host Larry Hagner welcomes guest Ben Pauling to discuss a topic that has been gaining a lot of attention. They briefly touch on Ben’s personal life before diving into the main subject. They mention the release of some films and the media’s coverage of the issue, which has created a perfect storm for their own film. 

Ben Pauling emphasizes that human trafficking is an issue of utmost importance and one that demands immediate attention. He also highlights the need for rescue missions and organizations dedicated to combating this problem. However, despite the efforts of these organizations, less than 1% of trafficked children are currently rescued. This statistic underscores the enormity of the challenge and the urgent need for increased awareness, resources, and action.

Awareness is key in prevention, especially when it comes to the issue of human trafficking. One of the common misconceptions is that human trafficking only happens in certain areas or to certain types of people. However, the reality is that it can occur anywhere, from small towns to large cities, and can affect people from all walks of life. This lack of awareness is dangerous because it allows predators to operate unnoticed and continue their heinous crimes.

By supporting these organizations and advocating for stronger laws and policies, we can contribute to the fight against child trafficking on a larger scale.
