Don't Let It Go Unheard: Inspiration vs. Indoctrination
May 23 2014
Weekly live webcast/podcast devoted to discussion of news and politics from the perspective of Ayn Rand's philosophy, Objectivism. Hosted by Amy Peikoff. 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! Check out program notes for today's show at www.dontletitgo.com.
