Show 1526 Civilization- Is the West History? Part 1 of 3

Episode 1 of the six part series-

Competition: The first part in the series begins in 1420 when England on the eve of the Wars of the Roses seemed quite primitive by contrast to Ming China that had a credible claim to be the most advanced civilization in the world. 

Episode 2 of the six part series-

Science: The domination of West by East was an alarmingly plausible scenario in 1683, when the Ottoman army laid siege to Vienna, the capital of Europe’s most powerful empire; but Islam was defeated by the help of tact and Science.

Show 1525 Civilization- Is the West History? Part 2 of 3

Episode 3 of the six part series-

Property: This part looks into the reasons as to why North America succeeded while South America for so many centuries lagged behind. It shows how the two had much in common but they differed profoundly on individual property rights, the rule of law and representative government, which eventually made all the difference.

Episode 4 of the six part series-

Medicine: The fourth part shows how the French Empire consciously set out to civilize West Africa by improving public health as well as building a modern infrastructure. Yet in other European empires – notably Germany’s in southwest Africa – colonial rule led to genocide.

Show 1524 Civilization- Is the West History   Part 3 of 3

 

Episode 5 of the six part series-

Consumerism: This part illustrates how the world today is becoming more homogenous and, with increasingly few exceptions, big-name brands dominate main streets, high streets and shopping malls all over the globe 

 

Episode 6 of the six part series-

Work: The sixth element that enabled the West to dominate the rest was the work ethic, which extolled the spirit of Capitalism by working hard, saving, and accumulating capital.

Show 1523 Private Philanthropy- The Subject Your History Textbook Left Out

 From the Tom Woods Show

Episode 670  Private Philanthropy: The Subject Your History Textbook Left Out

The American people give vastly more in philanthropic donations on a percentage basis than anyone in the world. This is the best-kept secret in American textbooks. Any schoolboy would have the impression that government intervention is required in order to get things done — after all, who else is going to do it? The suppressed history of American philanthropy is fascinating and compelling, and our expert guest takes us through this important part of American history and culture.

About the Guest

Karl Zinsmeister is vice president of publications for the Philanthropy Roundtable. Before that he spent 13 years as editor of The American Enterprise, the magazine of the American Enterprise Institute. From 2006 to 2009 he served in the West Wing as the president’s chief domestic policy adviser.

Show 1522 Prager University Part 18

This ACU show consists of 13 five minute segments from Prager University.

 

Who's More Pro-Choice: Europe or America?

Are abortion laws more conservative in America or in Western Europe? Would a pregnant woman seeking an abortion have an easier time getting one in Texas or in...Germany? The answers, as talk show host Elisha Krauss explains, may just change how you think about America's abortion laws.

 

What ISIS Wants

ISIS has conquered territory across the Middle East and northern Africa. It has terrorized its occupied cities, sown terror across Europe, and spread its ideology around the world. But what does ISIS want? What does it believe? Where did it come from? And can it be stopped? Tom Joscelyn, Senior Fellow at the Foundation for Defense of Democracies, explains.

 

Be a Man. Get Married.

Is bachelor life really the good life? Playing the field, traveling the world, and focusing on career sounds better than tying the knot. But is it possible that married men have more sex and make more money than their single counterparts? Brad Wilcox, sociologist at the University of Virginia, explains.

 

Why Are There Still Palestinian Refugees?

It's been seven decades since the 1948 Arab-Israeli war, and yet there are still an estimated 4 million Palestinian refugees...and zero Jewish refugees. With so many nearby Arab allies of the Palestinians, how did this happen? What does it say about Israel? What does it say about its Arab neighbors? Dumisani Washington, Diversity Outreach Coordinator for Christians United for Israel, explains.

 

Why Private Investment Works & Govt. Investment Doesn't

From transportation to energy, and everything in between, should the government invest money in as many promising projects as possible? Or would that actually doom many of those ventures to failure? Burt Folsom, historian and professor at Hillsdale College, answers those questions by drawing on the fascinating history of the race to build America's railroads and airplanes.

 

Fossil Fuels: The Greenest Energy

To make earth cleaner, greener and safer, which energy sources should humanity rely on? Alex Epstein of the Center for Industrial Progress explains how modern societies have cleaned up our water, air and streets using the very energy sources you may not have expected--oil, coal and natural gas.

 

Climate Change: What Do Scientists Say?

Climate change is an urgent topic of discussion among politicians, journalists and celebrities...but what do scientists say about climate change? Does the data validate those who say humans are causing the earth to catastrophically warm? Richard Lindzen, an MIT atmospheric physicist and one of the world's leading climatologists, summarizes the science behind climate change.

 

Are 1 in 5 Women Raped at College?

Is it true that 1 in 5 women are raped on America's college campuses? If so, what does that say about our universities and the people who run them? If not, how did that statistic get into the mainstream? Caroline Kitchens, Senior Research Associate at the American Enterprise Institute, looks at the data and explains the very significant results.

 

Baseball: As Unique as America

Why is baseball called "America's pastime"? What makes it any more unique than, say, football, basketball, or hockey? George Will, a Pulitzer Prize-winning columnist and the author of two bestselling books on baseball, explains why the sport known as "America's pastime" may really be just that.

 

Islamic Terror: What Muslim Americans Can Do

What must the United States do to prevent more Islamist terror attacks like recent ones in Brussels, Paris, and San Bernardino? Khurram Dara, a Muslim American activist, author and attorney, explains why it is Muslim Americans who must take the lead in identifying and combating Islamic extremists within their communities, before what's happening in Europe comes to our shores.

 

America's Socialist Origins

Was America once socialist? Surprisingly, yes. The early settlers who arrived at Plymouth and Jamestown in the early 1600s experimented with socialist communes. Did it work? History professor Larry Schweikart of the University of Dayton shares the fascinating story.

 

The Impact of PragerU

What impact does PragerU have? When it comes to Americans' views on politics, culture, economics, and religion, how big of a difference can five-minute videos make? Founder and president Dennis Prager explains

 

Did Bush Lie About Iraq?

Did George W. Bush lie to America about Saddam Hussein having weapons of mass destruction? Judith Miller, a Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist, covered the lead up to the Iraq War for The New York Times, and settles once and for all the big lie about the war in Iraq.

Show 1521 Mark Steyn’s Stand Against Climate Alarmism: In-Depth with the Climate Crybully Conniption-Inducer

Segment1-

For the New Criterion, Ben Weingarten, commentator and Founder & CEO of ChangeUp Media sits down with Mark Steyn, international bestselling author, political pundit, cultural critic and hardened climate change dissenter Mark Steyn for an in-depth interview. During their discussion, Weingarten and Steyn discuss the chilling of free speech by the climate alarmists and their enablers in the political and legal system, the stakes of the defamation suit filed against Steyn by climate scientist Dr. Michael E. Mann over a critical blog post, why it is the scientific community that resembles a racket rather than demonized “Big Oil,” the misogyny of the “climate cabal” and its attack on Dr. Judith Curry, the parallels between climate supremacists and Islamic supremacists, why the West should celebrate increasing levels of carbon dioxide and much more.

Show 1518 Valiant Ambition

From the Eric Metaxas Show

Best-selling author Nathan Philbrick joins the show to discuss his new book Valiant Ambition: George Washington, Benedict Arnold, and the Fate of the American Revolution

About the book- Valiant Ambition

A surprising account of the middle years of the American Revolution, and the tragic relationship between George Washington and Benedict Arnold.

In September 1776, the vulnerable Continental Army under an unsure George Washington (who had never commanded a large force in battle) evacuates New York after a devastating defeat by the British Army. Three weeks later, near the Canadian border, one of his favorite generals, Benedict Arnold, miraculously succeeds in postponing the British naval advance down Lake Champlain that might have ended the war. Four years later, as the book ends, Washington has vanquished his demons and Arnold has fled to the enemy after a foiled attempt to surrender the American fortress at West Point to the British. After four years of war, America is forced to realize that the real threat to its liberties might not come from without but from within.

Valiant Ambition is a complex, controversial, and dramatic portrait of a people in crisis and the war that gave birth to a nation. The focus is on loyalty and personal integrity, evoking a Shakespearean tragedy that unfolds in the key relationship of Washington and Arnold, who is an impulsive but sympathetic hero whose misfortunes at the hands of self-serving politicians fatally destroy his faith in the legitimacy of the rebellion. As a country wary of tyrants suddenly must figure out how it should be led, Washington’s unmatched ability to rise above the petty politics of his time enables him to win the war that really matters.

This audio excerpt from the book consists of chapters 1 & 2 and serves as an introduction to this fine book. Please purchase on Amazon or Audible.

 

Strong Fathers, Strong Daughters: 10 Secrets Every Father Should Know

by Meg Meeker

Overview of the book-

In today’s increasingly complicated world, it’s often difficult for parents to connect with their daughters–and especially so for fathers. In this unique and invaluable guide, Dr. Meg Meeker, a pediatrician with more than twenty years’ experience counseling girls, reveals that a young woman’s relationship with her father is far more important than we’ve ever realized. To become a strong, confident woman, a daughter needs her father’s attention, protection, courage, and wisdom. Dr. Meeker shares the ten secrets every father needs to know in order to strengthen or rebuild bonds with his daughter and shape her life–and his own–for the better. Inside you’ll discover:

  • the essential virtues of strong fathers–and how to develop them 
    • the cues daughters take from their dads on everything from self-respect to drugs, alcohol, and sex
    • the truth about ground rules (girls do want them, despite their protests)
    • the importance of becoming a hero to your daughter
    • the biggest mistake a dad can make–and the ramifications
    • the fact that girls actually depend on their dads’ guidance into adulthood
    • steps fathers can follow to help daughters avoid disastrous decisions and mistakes
    • ways in whicha father’s faith–or lack thereof–will influence his daughter
    • essential communication strategies for different stages of a girl’s life
    • true stories of “prodigal daughters”–and how their fathers helped to bring them back

Dads, you are far more powerful than you think–and if you follow Dr. Meeker’s advice, the rewards will be unmatched.

In this unique and invaluable guide, Dr. Meg Meeker, a pediatrician with more than twenty years' experience counseling girls, reveals that a young woman's relationship with her father is far more important than we've ever realized. To become a strong, confident woman, a daughter needs her father's attention, protection, courage, and wisdom. Dr. Meeker shares the ten secrets every father needs to know in order to strengthen or rebuild bonds with his daughter and shape her life-and his own-for the better. Inside you'll discover: the essential virtues of strong fathers-and how to develop them, the cues daughters take from their dads on everything from self-respect to drugs, alcohol, and sex, the truth about ground rules (girls do want them, despite their protests), the importance of becoming a hero to your daughter, the biggest mistake a dad can make-and the ramifications, the fact that girls actually depend on their dads' guidance into adulthood, steps fathers can follow to help daughters avoid disastrous decisions and mistakes, ways in which a father's faith-or lack thereof-will influence his daughter, essential communication strategies for different stages of a girl's life, true stories of "prodigal daughters"-and how their fathers helped to bring them back. Dads, you are far more powerful than you think-and if you follow Dr. Meeker's advice, the rewards will be unmatched.

 

Editorial Reviews

In the 20 years she spent practicing adolescent medicine and counseling teens and parents, Dr. Meg Meeker has learned many things, but perhaps none is more central than this: The most important person in a young girl's life is her father. In this book, a surprise hit in hardcover, she explains the essential connection between strong paternal messages and healthy, well-adjusted daughters. Citing recent research, Meeker describes how the support of fathers is the most reliable predictor of academic achievement, resilient marriage, and a stable emotional life. Sound pointers for pops.

Show 1505 This show was originally ACU show 102.  The Truth about Muhammed the Worlds Most Intolerant Religion by Robert Spencer audio excerpt from disk 1. To purchase from Amazon click HERE. Great Audio book. A must have in your library.

From Conservative book club- Straight from Muslim sources- the bloody life and violent teachings of Muhammad, the founder of Islam The Truth About Muhammad by Robert Spencer

As American and European leaders continue to assure us that true Islam is peaceful, and formulate foreign and domestic policy on that basis, it is more important today than ever before for non-Muslims to know exactly what Islams founder, Muhammad, actually did and taught. Now, in The Truth About Muhammad  Founder of the World’s Most Intolerant Religion, Robert Spencer provides a frank and accurate picture of the Muhammad that Muslims around the world revere: a warlord who preached violence, ordered the assassinations of his enemies, and used his “divine revelations? for his personal self-aggrandizement.

Spencer, author of the bestselling Politically Incorrect Guide to Islam (and the Crusades) and four other books on Islam and jihad, here works exclusively from the sources that Muslims themselves revere as most reliable for information about Muhammad. He explains why it matters so much today what Muhammad was like, and traces his tumultuous life in depth: from his first “revelation? from Allah (which filled him with terror that he was demon-possessed) to his deathbed (from which he called down curses upon Jews and Christians).

Spencer details Muhammad’s development from a preacher of hellfire and damnation into a military leader who commanded his followers to carry out surprise raids on his opponents, and who promised his warriors luridly physical delights in Paradise if they were killed in his cause. He shows how Muhammad’s faulty knowledge of Judaism and Christianity has influenced Islamic theology, and colored Muslim relations with Jews and Christians to this day. It’s all here: Muhammad’s multiple marriages (including one to a nine-year-old); his convenient “revelations? justifying his own licentiousness; his joy in the brutal murders of his enemies; and above all, his clear marching orders to his followers to convert non-Muslims to Islam or force them to live as inferiors under Islamic rule.

Spencer also shows how modern-day jihad terrorists frequently invoke Muhammad’s example to justify their bloodlust and exhort their followers to more violence. The true nature of Islam and the prospects for large-scale Islamic reform have important implications for host of issues - notably the prosecution of the war on terror; the democracy project in Iraq and Afghanistan; and immigration and border control. That’s what makes it crucial for policymakers and every citizen who loves freedom to read and ponder The Truth About Muhammad.

Meet the real Muhammad:

Muhammad’s bizarre reaction to his first “revelation?: “I will go to the top of the mountain and throw myself down that I may kill myself?

The heretical Christian who convinced Muhammad he was a prophet - and may have taught him his erroneous views of Christianity

Islamic borrowings from Judaism, Christianity, and Zoroastrianism - and Muhammad’s enraged replies to charges that he borrowed material rather than received actual divine revelations

The “revelation? that allowed Muhammad to marry his beautiful daughter-in-law

The strange incident in Muhammad’s life that makes it virtually impossible to prove rape in Islamic countries today

The real “Satanic Verses? incident (not the Salman Rushdie version): how Muhammad’s attempt to win over his opponents ended with his saying he had been inspired not by God, but by Satan

How the Qurans teaching on warfare against unbelievers developed - with constant war to establish the hegemony of Islamic law as the last stage

The first year of the Muslim calendar: not when Muhammad was born or became a prophet, but when he became a warlord

How Muhammad used the graphic lure of Islamic Paradise to urge his warriors to fight furiously to extend his rule

“Kill every Jew who comes into your power?: why Muhammad became so angry with both Jews and Christians - with disastrous consequences that are still playing out in the world today

The momentous command by Muhammad that led to good being identified with anything that benefited the Muslims, and evil with anything that harmed them—without reference to any larger moral standard

Muhammad’s child bride - and the terrible consequences his marriage to a nine-year-old still has in the Islamic world

“This is the caravan of the Quraysh possessing wealth. It is likely that Allah may give it to you as booty?: how Muhammad gave divine sanction to the Muslims’ bloody raids

“War is deceit?: the permission Muhammad gave his followers to lie in order to gain an advantage over their enemies

How Muhammad broke the principal treaty he entered into, again setting a pattern for Muslim states thereafter

Muhammad’s commands to his followers to wage perpetual war against non-Muslims, including Jews and Christians

Muhammad on women’s rights   women “are prisoners with you having no control of their persons?

“If justice is not to be found with me then where will you find it?? Why Muhammad still stands for Muslims as the supreme model for human behavior

“I will expel the Jews and Christians from the Arabian Peninsula, and will not leave any but Muslims? - and other statements by Muhammad that contemporary jihadists take very seriously

Islamic tolerance? The onerous tax burden and other discriminatory regulations mandated for non-Muslims under Islamic law

How Muhammad ordered the killing of apostates from Islam

The massacre of a Jewish tribe by Muhammad that was invoked by modern-day jihadists at the beginning of Israels July 2006 operations against Hizballah in Lebanon

“Embrace Islam, and your lives and property will be safe?: Muhammad’s threatening letters to the rulers of the lands around Arabia

Muhammad’s frequent avowals that the Muslims would overcome the empires bordering on Arabia and one day stand as masters of the world

“I have been made victorious with terror? - and other statements of Muhammad on his deathbed

Six steps that American leaders can and must take in order to protect our nation from Islamic jihad terrorism

Show 1504 Glenn Beck Presents F A Hayeks The Road to Serfdom

To watch the video of this audio presentation vist: 

http://youtu.be/Y9tZUvM3DYA

What F.A. Hayek saw, and what most all his contemporaries missed, was that every step away from the free market and toward government planning represented a compromise of human freedom generally and a step toward a form of dictatorship--and this is true in all times and places. He demonstrated this against every claim that government control was really only a means of increasing social well-being. Hayek said that government planning would make society less liveable, more brutal, more despotic. Socialism in all its forms is contrary to freedom.

Nazism, he wrote, is not different in kind from Communism. Further, he showed that the very forms of government that England and America were supposedly fighting abroad were being enacted at home, if under a different guise. Further steps down this road, he said, can only end in the abolition of effective liberty for everyone.

Capitalism, he wrote, is the only system of economics compatible with human dignity, prosperity, and liberty. To the extent we move away from that system, we empower the worst people in society to manage what they do not understand.
