Every Sunday from 5:00 to 6:00 p.m., PST, I host a webcast devoted to the discussion of politics and news from an Objectivist perspective. If you would like to sign up to attend this Sunday’s webcast live (which includes the ability to participate via written questions/comments, plus via audio if you have a USB headset with microphone), click here.
Topics to be discussed will include: (1) Comparison of two recent legal cases — one in which a woman was charged with a civil rights violation for advertising for a “Christian” roommate; another in which a court agreed to apply Sharia law in determining whether an arbitrator had authority to decide a dispute between two Muslims. What is the right result in these cases? Can they be reconciled? (2) By request, the recent court decision to reject the settlement in Google’s plan to digitize books. (3) Obama’s policy in Libya — what it says about him, and what lesson his supporters should have learned long ago but, since they didn’t, should at least have learned this week.
Breaking news events that come to my attention between now and Sunday afternoon may derail my plans, but this is what I have so far. I hope you will join me!
