Show 105 Dennis Prager and Michael Medved interview Lee Harris author The Suicide of Reason Radical Islams Threat to the West.  From front book flap- Whether by choice or not, the West finds itself in a low-grade yet bitter war with Islamic fanaticism. It is a war the West is singularly ill-equipped to fight. The foe is resistant to any of the normal methods of resolution such as negotiation, economic sanctions, or conventional armed confrontation. To prevail, we must change our understanding of the conflict. The Suicide of Reason shows how modern liberal societies, whose political theories are born of the Enlightenment, are unfamiliar with the nature of mass fanaticism. The West, so accustomed to thinking of history as an inevitable progress toward enlightenment, can only think of fanaticism as a social pathology, a failure to modernize, rather than as what it is – a variety of social order that is not only fully viable in the modern world but that possesses weapons to which  the West is uniquely vulnerable. A governing philosophy based on reason, tolerance, consensus and deliberation cannot defend itself against a strategy of ruthless violence without being radically transformed- or worse, destroyed.

Extraordinarily original and thought-provoking, The Suicide of Reason explains the logic of fanatical Islam, describes how the Enlightenment overcame fanatical thinking in the West, shows why most Western attempts to address the problem are doomed to fail and offers strategies by which liberal internationalism can defend itself without becoming a mirror of the tribal forces it is trying to defeat. 16.6MB  54 min long.

Show 97 Dennis Prager and Michael Medved talk to historian Stephen Mansfield.. His new book is Ten Tortured Words: How the Founding Fathers Tried to Protect Religion in America . . . and What’s Happened Since. Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion. No other sentence has proven more important to America - or has been so dramatically wrenched from its original meaning and context. Today, the first sentence of the First Amendment is used to quash prayer at public events, chisel religious phrases from official buildings, intimidate pastors into keeping silent on political issues, and fire teachers for keeping Bibles on their desks. Now, in Ten Tortured Words: How the Founding Fathers Tried to Protect Religion in America and What’s Happened Since, Stephen Mansfield reveals how the First Amendment to the Constitution written to protect religion from a federal government only has been so manipulated by the Left that its use now contradicts the intention of the Founding Fathers.
Ten Tortured Words combines extensive historical and legal research with interviews of contemporary thinkers and American voices. You’ll learn:

How the First Amendment originally was not understood as a ban on religion in government—in fact, it didn’t even apply to the states

The true context of Thomas Jefferson’s “wall of separation between church and state? metaphor - and how its misuse is contrary to Jefferson’s own beliefs

Why Washington, D.C, residents - including several presidents—attended church services in the Capitol for much of the 19th century

How the Everson v. Board of Education ruling refashioned American religious life into a secularist vision - and the KKK affiliation of the Supreme Court Justice who wrote this majority opinion

The ACLU’s bullying techniques, profiteering through Establishment Clause litigation, how Hollywood funds these bogus cases

The emerging “Religious Left,? and how religious worldviews will play a prominent role in the 2008 elections 12MB 55min.  podcast rating 6 out of 10.
