Heather Gerken, Skelley Wright professor of constitutional law at Yale University, and who has appeared on PBS, testified to congress, written numerous articles, etc., here discusses campaign finance reform and the recent Supreme Court decision that strikes down an Arizona law that attempted to level the playing field in elections by public financing for candidates.

Craig Barnes: Andy Schmookler

| 0 Comments

Andy Schmookler, author of The Parable of the Tribes and other examinations of American political thought, speculates on the nature of evil, or, to put it differently, the great force for lying, torture, and self interest that has taken possession of American politics. Andy is a candidate for Congress in the 6th District of Virginia and hopes to reawaken a conversation about politics, virtue, and the great spirit that can head us toward good or evil.

Craig Barnes: Terry O'Neill

| 0 Comments

Terry O’Neill, president of the National Organization for Women, discusses the package of legislation that has passed the US House of Representatives during the first session of Congress this year.  From making abortions more expensive, or by slashing programs that disproportionately employ or benefit women such as Pell Grants, Headstart,  or Food Stamps, or pre-natal care, this Congress has systematically discriminated against women.  Why or how?  Because "we are invisible," says O'Neill.

Craig Barnes: Gary Hart (2nd)

| 0 Comments

Former US Senator Gary Hart discusses the origins of the American republic that at its origins meant public responsibility for citizenship and civic virtue.  “We must earn our rights by the performance of our duties,” quotes Hart, lamenting the loss of personal responsibility and public virtue in today’s politics.

Jerome Bernstein, Jungian psychoanalyst, considers the Biblical and historical origins and the deep roots in story that produces the chaos we are in today.  The interplay between justice and equity or moral and ethics leads to a discussion of wisdom and what might be our innate human nature.

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.
