John Locke vs. Jean-Jacques Rousseau

08/07/2010

Why does America seem so divided? It’s caught in a battle between the economic and moral worldviews of two different men from previous centuries. In the near future America will have to decide whose view will prevail: Locke or Rousseau. One built this country. The other has failed every time it’s been tried in the last two hundred years. Dr. Michael Coffman, Ph.D., www.rescuingamericabook.com) returns with his new book, “Rescuing a Broken America, Why America is Deeply Divided.”

The way politicians speak, you’d swear oil will be completely replaced as an energy source within 24 months. Nothing could be further from the truth. The world will rest on an oil- based economy for quite some time in the foreseeable future. Gary Bauer (www.ouramericanvalues.org) examines the disconnected-ness our politicians have from the need for a real-world workable U.S. energy policy.

In addition, we’ll air clips from Robert Hirsch, one of the first to perform government-sponsored studies on global oil decline but whose funding was discontinued once the government didn’t like the message.

John’s boralogue explains what a fourth turning crisis is and how it relates to the other three generational turnings.
