Craig Barnes: Ben Barber

| 0 Comments

Ben Barber has been a consultant to Saif Qhaddfi's democracy foundation until resigning this week. As the author of 17 books on democracy and modern culture he looks at tribal and family loyalties and predicts a long difficult road for Libya ahead. "Democracy is not just regime change, and no two countries are alike. Libya does not have the width and breadth of middle class that Egypt has and has little infrastructure with which to replace the dictator."  The focus then shifts to Madison, Wisconsin and the destruction of the middle class by the narrowest interests with the most money and the gradual shift of this country toward plutocracy.

Craig Barnes: Nabil Echchaibi (2nd)

As the Middle East is rocked by turmoil and upheaval, Nabil Echchaibi returns to Our Times to relate what is being said by Al Jazeera, who is in the streets of Cairo, and who is telling the story in Arabic.  Echchaibi puts the Muslim Brotherhood in a light unfamiliar to western viewers as the champion of the revolution and is a professor of mass communications at the University of Colorado at Boulder, a Moroccan who keeps close tabs and recounts how they too have been harassed, kidnapped and beaten by Mubarak's supporters.  Altogether, this is an exciting new view of what is happening in Egypt during these tense days of decision.

Craig Barnes: John Rubel

| 0 Comments

John Rubel was director of research and development in the Pentagon when the Minuteman missile was the pride of the Air Force because it could be launched within a single minute. 'What civilian controls? asked Rubel to the generals.  'Very complicated,' came their reply, in effect admitting that there were none. So Rubel set out to convince at first the Eisenhower and then the Kennedy administrations that a vastly improved protocol was required. Rubel's courage and intellectual timber come through in this fascinating interview.
