just a quick glance at the topics in the videos on this 'high-brow' video site http://www.fora.tv./
i have personally not watched these videos (too much time and attention required).
1. genocide and ethnic cleansing: Historian Bruce Clark discusses the emergence of modern Greece and Turkey. Leaders in both countries sought to advance a national ethnic identity, resulting in mass expulsions of Christian Greeks from Turkey and Muslims from Greece.
2. oppression, apartheid: The Most Rev. Njongonkulu Ndungane, Archbishop of Cape Town, discusses same-sex marriage and other issues in the Anglican Church, as well as issues the Church is confronting in Africa: segregation, AIDS and the debt load of developing nations.
3. theocracy: Kevin Phillips discusses American Theocracy: The Peril and Politics of Radical Religion, Oil, and Borrowed Money in the 21st Century.
Phillips predicted in 1969 that the growing populations of the South and West would build a stronger Republican Party and a more stable, orderly country. Four decades later, he is scathingly critical of the "erring Republican majority." He addresses the expanding national debt, increasing oil consumption and the breakdown of the wall between religion and state.
and there's a question: "is mohammedanism compatible with democracy?" of course it isn't. there should be another question: "is christism compatible with democracy?" of course it isn't. it is an imperialist death cult that requires blind faith and absolute obedience. you may not have any opinion other than what the godmen tell you: in pink floyd's words: "we told you what to think."
also of interest, woodward-bernstein's carl bernstein on hillary clinton: Pulitzer prize-winning reporter Carl Bernstein takes an in-depth look at the fascinating life and career of Hillary Rodham Clinton, a complex woman who helped shape her husband's Presidency and may well ascend to the office in her own right.
