Show 1131 The People Have Spoken and They Are Wrong   The Case Against Democracy by David Harsanyi

Michael Medved talks to the author of The People Have Spoken (and They Are Wrong): The Case Against Democracy by David Harsanyi

Democracy may be one of the most admired ideas ever concocted, but what if it’s also one of the most harebrained? After many years of writing about democracy for a living, David Harsanyi has concluded that it’s the most overrated, overused, and misunderstood idea in political life. The less we have of it the better.

“Democracy” is not synonymous with “freedom.” It is not the opposite of tyranny. In fact, the Founding Fathers knew that democracy can lead to tyranny. That’s why they built so many safeguards against it into the Constitution.

Democracy, Harsanyi argues, has made our government irrational, irresponsible, and invasive. It has left the American people with only two options—domination by the majority or a government that can’t possibly work.

The modern age has imbued democracy with the mystique of infallibility. But Harsanyi reminds us that the vast majority of political philosophers, including the founders, have thought that responsible, limited government based on direct majority rule over a large, let alone continental scale was a practical impossibility.

In The People Have Spoken, you’ll learn:

Why the Framers of our Constitution were intent on establishing a republic, not a “democracy”

How democracy undermines self-government

How shockingly out of touch with reality most voters really are

Why democracy is an economic wrecking ball—and an invitation to a politics of envy and corruption

How the great political philosophers from Plato and Aristotle to Burke and Tocqueville predicted with uncanny accuracy that democracy could lead to tyranny

Harsanyi warns that if we don’t recover the Founders’ republican vision, “democracy” might very well spell the end of American liberty and prosperity.

Show 1127 Gosnell, the Movie and Book- Marriage and Civilization

Dennis Prager talks to film-makers Phelim McAleer and Ann McElhinney. They are raising money for a movie about infanticide abortion doctor, Kermit Gosnell… William Tucker, editor for Real Clear Politics. His new book is Marriage and Civilization: How Monogamy Made Us Human.

Marriage built civilization. Will its collapse lead to our downfall?

 

In Marriage and Civilization, Tucker takes readers on a journey through the history of the human race to demonstrate how a pattern of life-long, monogamous pairings has enabled humans to build modern civilization. Drawing extensively on biological, anthropological, and historical evidence, Tucker makes the case that marriage is not only a desirable institution for societies, it’s actually the bedrock of civilization.

 

Tucker also examines America (and the world)’s current marriage crisis, and the factors that have led to the decline of marriage, the dramatic rise of divorce, and the epidemic of single parenthood. He draws bold predictions about what could happen to American society of marriage collapses entirely, and he sketches out the threat from polygamous groups such as fundamental Muslim sects. Polygamy, Tucker argues, not only generates discontent and disorder within a society, but promotes violence against others. Monogamous marriage is vital not only to our domestic well-being, but our survival in the face of violent enemies

Show 1124 Documentary- Pandora's Promise    Nuclear Energy

Former antinuclear activists and groundbreaking scientists speak out in favor of the much-maligned energy source in this provocative documentary.

From the website- Impact Partners, in association with Vulcan Productions and CNN Films, present PANDORA’S PROMISE, the groundbreaking new film by Academy-Award®-nominated director Robert Stone. The atomic bomb and meltdowns like Fukushima have made nuclear power synonymous with global disaster. But what if we’ve got nuclear power wrong? An audience favorite at the Sundance Film Festival, PANDORA’S PROMISE asks whether the one technology we fear most could save our planet from a climate catastrophe, while providing the energy needed to lift billions of people in the developing world out of poverty. In his controversial new film, Stone tells the intensely personal stories of environmentalists and energy experts who have undergone a radical conversion from being fiercely anti to strongly pro-nuclear energy, risking their careers and reputations in the process. Stone exposes this controversy within the environmental movement head-on with stories of defection by heavy weights including Stewart Brand, Richard Rhodes, Gwyneth Cravens, Mark Lynas and Michael Shellenberger. Undaunted and fearlessly independent, PANDORA’S PROMISE is a landmark work that is forever changing the conversation about the myths and science behind this deeply emotional and polarizing issue.    2013        69 minutes

Show 1123 A Fierce Domain   Conflict in Cyberspace  1986 to 2012

Jason Healey presents a fascinating overview of military history in cyberspace.

Pritzker Military Museum & Library and Cyber Conflict Studies Association present a program about the history of cyberspace and its growing importance in conflicts around the world.

A Fierce Domain: Conflict in Cyberspace, 1986 to 2012 begins with a narrative on the historical landscape of cyber conflict and the major lessons for us today. The book includes case studies of important cyber conflicts, like the conflicts in Estonia (2007) and Georgia (2008) along with the earliest cyber conflict, the 1986 “Cuckoo’s Egg” espionage, in which the KGB paid German hackers to steal information from the United States.

The first book of its kind, A Fierce Domain identifies key lessons for policymakers, and, most importantly, where these lessons greatly differ from popular myths common in military and political circles.

Record date Thursday, April 10, 2014

Jason Healey is the Director of the Cyber Statecraft Initiative of the Atlantic Council, focusing on international cooperation, competition and conflict in cyberspace.  Previously he has worked cyber issues since the 1990s as a policy director at the White House, executive director at Goldman Sachs in Hong Kong and New York, vice chairman of the FS-ISAC (the information sharing and security organization for the finance sector) and a U.S. Air Force intelligence officer.  He is a board member of Cyber Conflict Studies Association, lecturer in cyber policy at Georgetown University and author of dozens of published essays and papers.

Show 1122 Clean Comedy- Jim Gaffigan  Mr. Universe (2012)

A recent Wall Street Journal headline hailed comedian Jim Gaffigan as “the king of (clean) comedy.”

“Jim Gaffigan works clean,” Don Steinberg wrote in the March 15 edition. “He resists profanity. He doesn't rip celebrities with crude insults. He won't reveal everything you didn't want to know about his sexual urges and private parts. At a time when comedy is as filthy as it's ever been — the industry euphemism is ‘edgy’ — Mr. Gaffigan, working clean, has become one of the hottest comedians in the country. He was one of the top 10 touring comedians in North America last year, according to Pollstar.”

From IMBD- Jim Gaffigan does it again with his new stand-up Mr. Universe. Gaffigan jumps from topic to topic joking around with a varied number of topics. Some of the topics included are McDonalds, family, Disney World, and much more. 78 min  -  Comedy
