Theoretically governments are supposed to save the planet for future generations. But we now have to ask if we are being forced to save ourselves from those who are saving the planet. Julie MacDonald is former Deputy Undersecretary of the Interior (www.bestscience.org) and she debuts on the program to explain why so many governmental agencies are running rough shod over American citizens with little concern. Environmentalism has become a big-money game with only passing relation to saving the environment.

It seems the United Nations is getting ready to try to impose its control of the Internet by revising an existing international telecommunications treaty. Bartlett Cleland from the Institute for Policy Innovation (www.ipi.org) joins us.

Then in the last part of the program we’ll air clips from congressional hearings this week on persecution of Christians in China, especially noting the plight of Chinese human rights attorney and activist Chen Guangcheng.

John’s boralogue responds to a recent (offensive to many) speech by gay atheist activist Dan Savage to a group of high school journalism students, which has gone viral in some sectors. We’ll examine statements he made from a worldview perspective.

The Anti-Humanism Behind Environmentalism

Progressives have had a hard time establishing a basis for their constant appeals to morality due to the constantly changing basis on which it stands. James Kalb (www.jimkalb.com) is author of “The Tyranny of Liberalism: Understanding and Overcoming Administered Freedom, Inquisitorial Tolerance, and Equality by Command.”

Despite the claim that we’re saving nature for future generations, there is a long-standing dark side to environmentalism, which breathes malevolent hostility towards humanity in general. This philosophy of anti-humanism was responsible for much of the genocide which took place in the 20th Century. Dr. Robert Zubrin, Ph.D., is author of “Merchants of Despair: Radical Environmentalists, Criminal Pseudo-Scientists and the Fatal Cult of Antihumanism.”

John’s boralogue describes why the Obama administration’s proposal for a “Buffet Rule” is a conversion from taxing income to taxing capital. This chokes efforts of businesses to expand and create jobs, and is the equivalent of being forced to eat one’s seed corn, leaving nothing to start the following year’s crop. We’ll demonstrate this by examining the disparity between Warren Buffet’s tax recommendations for you and me versus what he actually does.
