Craig Barnes: Shoaib Rahim

| 0 Comments

Afghanistan is a country in cultural transition, caught in war still after 30 years, and is viewed in this conversation by Shoaib Rahim, an Afghan Fulbright scholar who has spent the last year at Duke University. Rahim addresses the contradictions between the need for both a quick American withdrawal and a long-term American presence.  He addresses the catastrophe of American military power killing civilians and the equally potentially catastrophic result from an American hasty retreat that would leave the country helpless before it is able to cope on its own, with its own institutions. Rahim calls for an honest discussion of these ambiguities rather than the easy sloganeering of global politics.

Craig Barnes: Bill Hogeland

| 0 Comments

William Hogeland gives us stories of the American Revolution and the Declaration of Independence that few of us have heard, including the critical days of May 1776 when mechanics, small shop keepers and privates in the militia banded together with John and Samuel Adams to demand, not just an end to taxation by the British, but a form of democratic government in which ordinary people would have the vote.  Working people brought off the critical change in Pennsylvania's legislature that eventually led to July 4th, and changed history.

Craig Barnes: Dana Freyer

Dana Freyer faces the ambiguities in America's presence in Afghanistan from the standpoint of one whose organization Global Partnership for Afghanistan has planted ten million trees, recreated irrigation systems, taught chicken inoculation and cold storage, and invovled more than 175,000 Afghanis in their own agricultural redevelopment.  Simply pulling out is not an option, she says. As we wind down our military presence we must find ways to protect the significant gains that are liberating both men and women from poverty and terror.

Craig Barnes: Elaine Pagels

| 0 Comments

Elaine Pagels has found in the Nag Hammadi gospels a message of personal transformation and clarity that would make a modern psychologist proud.  As the nation's most celebrated interpreter of these fourth century scrolls, Pagels discusses the contrast between the Gospel of Thomas and the Gospel of John and the mechanisms of church politics that brought the latter into the acceptable canon while condemning Thomas as heresy from which he has only been redeemed by the discovery in 1945 of these ancient scrolls.
