The Threats to Freedom: A Philosophic Dissection (MP3 download)
By Peter Schwartz
In this course, Peter Schwartz focuses on the mounting threats to freedom posed by anti-reason movements. He discusses the conservatives’ disastrous attempt to base capitalism on religion and on other non-rational foundations. He explains how liberals are attacking the rational mind via egalitarianism, as manifested in multiculturalism and environmentalism. And he shows how all these threats are culminating in the erosion of freedom of expression.
