Inspiration vs. Indoctrination, Today at 12 p.m. PT (3 p.m. ET)

Today’s show title was inspired (pun intended) by the juxtaposition of two stories about the future of education in the United States. One story is about a new startup that aims to inspire grade school children to love and learn about science. The other is about a White House official who, after considering the system of educational indoctrination in China, concluded that, even in the United States, “high schools probably have a significant ability to move students toward what they consider ‘a correct worldview, a correct view on life, and a correct value system.'”

But, as we’ll see, the theme can be carried beyond the realm of education, to Obama’s use of his “pen and a phone,” to his characterization of Obamacare, to Islam and other totalitarian religions, and more. This dichotomy might even help explain the success of non-liberal talk radio!

See Program Notes, below, for all the stories, etc., we plan to discuss in today’s show.

  2. Should have asked the caller who called Ted Cruz a lunatic to explain himself. “Why do you think that; support your statement.” I am curious as to what he would have said to support his statement and know you would have easily refuted his arguments.
