Chapter 1 (00:15 - 38:16): Nationalism and Identity Politics
Chapter 2 (38:16 - 1:19:53): Defending Western Civ
Jonah Goldberg is a senior editor of National Review and Asness Chair in Applied Liberty at the American Enterprise Institute. Drawing on his new book Suicide of the West, Goldberg argues that strong tendencies in contemporary American culture—including tribalism, populism, nationalism, and identity politics—are increasingly undermining the moral and political foundations of America. In discussing these phenomena, Kristol and Goldberg also consider why it is important for young people to study the American political tradition and appreciate what is best in Western civilization.

Why did the German army continue to fight the Allies even in the face of certain defeat? Following the Battle of Stalingrad and defeats on other fronts in 1943, the tide had turned against the German war machine – and most German officers knew it. The Wehrmacht’s Last Stand chronicles the final campaigns of WWII in Europe from January 1944 until the Wehrmacht’s ultimate collapse and the storming of Berlin by the Red Army in May 1945. Join us as Dr. Citino traces the “death ride” of the German army and explains why millions of men kept fighting in the face of increasingly hopeless

24:55 (continuing from the above) An intro. to the Poetic Edda.

I made this one hour primetime television special in 1986. At the time, it was a big deal for the Navy to let me on one of their submarines. I love the experience and the submariners. This documentary won the blue ribbon at the American Film Festival. As I am an independent filmmaker, I make a portion of my living from selling copies of my films but I have decided, given the number of requests that I have had from ex-Navy men and women, to put the entire film up on YouTube. Please like this if you find watching it of value to you

I just have to laugh at people like this....................

Jean Keats
The next time anyone has these "visions" of Mary, ask her, is God's Ten Commands still in effect? Guaranteed she'll say NO! God's Ten Commands will stand FOREVER! The devil is VERY crafty at miracles and fooling people. He can do miracles like humans cannot. Catholicism is evil. God said, 3 Thou shalt have no other gods before me.
 
4 Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image, or any likeness of any thing that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth.
 
5 Thou shalt not bow down thyself to them, nor serve them: for I the Lord thy God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate me. This means NO saint ANYONE!!!!!! This is right from the Bible. LEARN
 
.......It's either Laugh, grab a baseball bat or beat my head against the wall. Imagine Jean Keats Shock when she/he gets to heaven, and see's all those Catholics running around!

HINGE OF HISTORY!

Niall Ferguson Networks and Power

Nov. 19 2918

“This time is different.”

Historians: “Ha.”

“The Net is net beneficial.”

Historian Niall Ferguson: “Globalization is in crisis. Populism is on the march. Authoritarian states are ascendant. Technology meanwhile marches inexorably ahead, threatening to render most human beings redundant or immortal or both. How do we make sense of all this?”

Ferguson analyzes the structure and prospects of “Cyberia” as yet another round in the endless battle between hierarchy and networks that has wrought spasms of innovation and chaos throughout history. He examines those previous rounds (including all that was set in motion by the printing press) in light of the current paradoxes of radical networking enabled by digital technology being the engine of massive hierarchical companies (Facebook, Amazon, Google, Twitter, and their equivalents in China) and exploited by populists and authoritarians around the world.

He puts the fundamental question this way: “Is our age likely to repeat the experience of the period after 1500, when the printing revolution unleashed wave after wave of revolution? Will the new networks liberate us from the shackles of the administrative state as the revolutionary networks of the sixteenth, seventeenth and eighteenth centuries freed our ancestors from the shackles of spiritual and temporal hierarchy? Or will the established hierarchies of our time succeed more quickly than their imperial predecessors in co-opting the networks, and enlist them in their ancient vice of waging war?”

How did a nice, liberal Jewish boy from the Bronx come to be called a conservative?

 

The late Ben J. Wattenberg was at the center of American ideas and events since 1966, when he became a speechwriter for President Lyndon B. Johnson. He served as an adviser to two Democratic presidential candidates and in the 1970s helped write the Democratic National Platform.
 
But something funny happened on the way to the Great Society: Key players in the Democratic Party moved to the far left. Wattenberg was not happy, so he helped establish the Coalition for a Democratic Majority (CDM) and became one of the most outspoken voices in the neo-conservative movement.
 
Replete with stories never told before, Fighting Words is Wattenberg’s personal account of the remarkable transformation of American politics over the last four decades. Featuring commentary by Pat Buchanan, E.J Dionne, Francis Fukuyama, Christopher Hitchens, Daniel Patrick Moynihan, and James Q. Wilson. The film also includes an appearance by Wattenberg’s sister Rebecca Schull, the actor who played the flight attendant Fay Cochran on the NBC comedy series, Wings.
