Saving Democracy but Losing Freedom
We clear the decks today for an unusual type of program. On January 17, 2006, former Vice President Al Gore delivered an important address in New York regarding the erosion of civil rights in the name of preserving freedom. His speech was sponsored by a coalition of left and right-wing political groups. It was so important, the New York Times (the so-called newspaper of record) ignored it and little has been said in other media, but it may well turn out to be one of the most important speeches of the decade.
John airs clips of the speech along with commentary putting the former vice president’s comments in perspective. In addition, we’re providing a link to hear Vice President Gore’s address in its entirety.
