First Topic - #25: “The Demographic Winter”
While the world focuses its energies and its fears on a purported global-warming crisis, a new documentary claims that if there is any global crisis, it is not global warming, but rather demographic winter. Demographer Philip Longman is featured extensively and says the ongoing global decline in human birthrates is the single most powerful force affecting the fate of nations and the future of society in the 21st century. We look at the numbers, the influences, and catastrophic results of the “birth dearth.” Dr. Longman is our guest.
Second Topic - #24: Icon of Evil: Hitler’s Mufti and the Rise of Radical Islam
A chilling, fascinating, and nearly forgotten historical figure had been resurrected in a riveting work that links the fascism of the last century with the terrorism of our own. David Dalin has, with extraordinary access to primary sources in several languages, written “Icon of Evil: Hitler’s Mufti and the Rise of Radical Islam.” It is the definitive account of Haj Amin al-Husseini, the man who during World War II was called “the führer of the Arab world” and whose ugly legacy lives on today.
