Law and Disorder • August 3, 9:00am – 10:00am
The Junior Reserve Officers' Training Corps, or JROTC, is a federal program sponsored by the US Armed Forces in high schools and some middle schools across the nation and at US military bases globally. It currently teaches its lessons to more than half a million students in approximately 3,400 high schools nationwide. In recent years, the military and its supporters have been promoting the idea of a significant increase in the number of high schools with JROTC. Because of this, one nonprofit decided it was time to examine the textbooks used in JROTC classes to see what they are teaching. Guest - Rick Jahnkow, a co-founder and board member of Project YANO.
Freedom House, a nonprofit organization founded in 1941, assigns a grade to countries based on how free they are. In 1973, it began using social science analysis methods to assess the level of freedom by nation, attaching a numerical score and ranking them as Free, Partly Free, or Not Free. The 2021 report, Democracy Under Seige noted that the pandemic, combined with economic and physical insecurity along with violent conflict, struck a heavy blow to defenders of democracy. It shifted the international balance in favor of tyranny. Guest - Sarah Repucci, Vice President of Research & Analysis at Freedom House.Read More

The great 20th-century Irish poet William Butler Yeats wrote, “We had fed the heart on fantasies, The heart’s grown brutal from the fare.” The United States has long fed its heart with fairy tales about itself. Hardly a day goes by without some new story being spun about our noble intentions, benevolence and devotion to international law. Sadism is not something new.
