Propaganda, Privacy and Productivity, today at 10 a.m. PT (1 p.m. ET)

We’re long overdue for a shredding of one of Obama’s speeches, and what better to shred than his propaganda-filled SOTU address? We’ll also talk about the continuing threats to our privacy posed by governments, and I’ll fill in some more details about Eben Pagan’s “Wake Up Productive” program, which some of you have already signed up to take with me, starting next week! (Registration for the program closes at midnight, tonight (PT), so don’t miss out on the opportunity to go through this program with us!)

Speaking Freely, today at 10 a.m. PT (1 p.m. ET)

Today we continue in our new morning time slot, and we also, as you can see in the program notes, will spend some time discussing much that has occurred in the wake of the Islamic attack on Charlie Hebdo.

What does it mean to speak freely? What does speaking freely require of government? What is and isn’t included in the concept of free speech? Are free speech and intellectual property in conflict?

We’ll be discussing several other stories as well, so scroll down to see all the stories, etc., that we plan to discuss.

Muslims and Artists Must Change, Catholic League

“Catholicism teaches that freedom is the right to do what you ought to do. As such, it is always tied to duty, and to individual responsibility. Once that understanding breaks down—as it has in the West—trouble follows. Unfortunately, many artists interpret their rights as a solo exercise, disconnected from duty.”

Interview with John Allison, President and CEO of The Cato Institute and former CEO of BB&T

At the top of the second hour of today’s show I’ll have the pleasure of interviewing John Allison, who is currently President and CEO of The Cato Institute, and formerly was the CEO of BB&T, the 10th largest financial institution in the United States. We’ll be discussing his book, The Leadership Crisis and the Free Market Cure: Why the Future of Business Depends on the Return to Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness, in which Allison presents the principles necessary to achieve success and happiness—principles applicable to individuals, organizations and society as a whole.

During the first hour I’ll be discussing some news more generally, most likely focusing on the current hostage situations in France, one of which involves the jihadists who massacred 12 journalists and cartoonists working for Charlie Hebdo, the French satirical magazine that dared to mock Islam and Mohammad.
