Show 212 Globalization is Good by Johan Norberg. Film documentary edited for Audio. To see film visit Google video Globalization is Good- Johan Norberg on Globalization. http://video.google.com/videosearch?q=globalization&sitesearch=   

The world is an unequal and unjust place, in which some are born into wealth and some into hunger and misery. To explore why, in this controversial Channel Four documentary the young Swedish writer Johan Norberg takes the viewers on a journey to Taiwan, Vietnam, Kenya and Brussels to see the impact of globalization, and the consequences of its absence. It makes the case that the problem in the world is not too much capitalism, globalization and multinationals, but too little.

Show 210 Michael Medved talks to Douglas Feith, the former Under Secretary of Defense and a chief architect of the Iraq war. His new book is War and Decision: Inside the Pentagon at the Dawn of the War on Terrorism.  37minutes 8.6MB To purchase book visit Amazon War and Decision  

Synopsis- Of all the players in the planning and evolution of the Bush Administrations war on terrorism, few were more integral—or more controversial—than Douglas Feith, the chief strategist on Donald Rumsfelds Pentagon policy team. A highly influential international policy analyst for more than a quarter century before joining the Bush Administration in 2001, Feith worked closely with Rumsfeld, Paul Wolfowitz, Colin Powell, Condoleezza Rice, Vice President Cheney, and President Bush in defining the U.S. response to the attacks of 9/11 -- from the successful war on Afghanistan to the more challenging invasion of Iraq and its aftermath.

Now, in this candid and revealing memoir, Feith—a founding member of the "neoconservative? movement and an architect of the administration's preventive strategy in the war on terrorism—offers the most in-depth and authoritative account yet of the Pentagon"s evolving stance during one of the most controversial eras of American history. Drawing upon a unique trove of documents and records, this extraordinary chronicle will put the reader in the room for scores of previously unreported senior-level meetings, showing how hundreds of critical decisions were made in defense of American interests during and after the crisis of 9/11 -- decisions both successful and controversial. Where journalists like Bob Woodward could only speculate, Feith is the first inside player to reveal the inner workings of the Pentagon, at a time when history hung in the balance. 

As the political battles over Iraq and the Bush administration surge onward, one thing has been missing: A fair and accurate assessment of how the battles were joined, from inside the team that planned them. With this exceptional work of history, Douglas Feith contributes the only thing that can change the course of the debate: the truth.

Show 209 The New Cold War: Putin's Russia and the Threat to the West. Michael Medved talks to Author Edward Lucas. 26 minutes 6MB.

In late 1999 when Vladimir Putin was named Prime Minister, Russia was a budding democracy. Multiple parties campaigned for seats in the Duma, the nation's parliament. The media criticized the government freely. Eight years later as Putin completes his second term as president of Russia and announces his bid for prime minister, the country is under a repressive regime. Human rights abuses are widespread. The Kremlin is openly hostile to the West. Yet the United States and Europe have been slow to confront the new reality, in effect, helping Russia win what experts are now calling the New Cold War.

Edward Lucas, former Moscow Bureau Chief for The Economist, offers a harrowing portrait from inside Russia as well as a sobering political assessment of what the New Cold War will mean for the world. In this big, hard hitting and urgently needed book, he shows how
* Russia is pursuing global energy markets
* Neighboring nations are being coerced back into the former Soviet orbit
* Journalists and dissidents are being silenced
* Foreign investments and private enterprises are routinely defrauded
* Putin is laying the groundwork for controlling industry and planning his new role as prime minister

Show 205 What's So Great About Christianity by Dinesh DSouza. Medved talks to author. 37 minutes 8.5MB.

From the Inside Flap- Is Christianity obsolete? Can an intelligent, educated person really believe the Bible? Or do the atheists have it right? Has Christianity been disproven by science, debunked as a force for good, and discredited as a guide to morality?

Bestselling author Dinesh DSouza -What's So Great About America- looks at Christianity with a questioning eye, but treats atheists with equal skepticism. The result is a book that will challenge the assumptions of both believers and doubters and affirm that there really is, indeed, something great about Christianity. DSouza reveals:

*Why Christianity explains what modern science tells us about the universe and our origins--that matter was created out of nothing, that light preceded the sun--better than atheism does
*How Christianity created the framework for modern science, so that Christianity and science are not irreconcilable, but science and atheism might be
*Why the alleged sins of Christianity--the Crusades, the Inquisition, the Galileo affair, an atheist's fable, --are vastly overblown
*Why atheist regimes are responsible for the greatest mass murders of history
*Why evolution does not threaten Christian belief, but actually supports the -argument from design-
*Why atheists fear the Big Bang theory and the -anthropic principle- of the universe, which are keystones of modern astronomy and physics
*How Christianity explains consciousness and free will, which atheists have to deny
*Why ultimately you cant have Western civilization--and all we value from it--without the Christianity that gave it birth.

Provocative, enlightening, a twenty-first-century successor to C. S. Lewis Mere Christianity, Dinesh DSouza's What's So Great About Christianity is the perfect book for the seeker, the skeptic, and the believer who wants to defend his faith.

University. He is the bestselling author of Whats So Great About America, Ronald Reagan: How an Ordinary Man Became an Extraordinary Leader, and many other books.
