WS radio: Political Animals and a special, action-packed show

Hello, all,

Tune in today at 4pm Eastern time for Political Animals. This is going to be an awesome show. We have three(!) guests lined up, in no particular order:

One: Mark Steyn


We all know and love Mark Steyn, the author of "America Alone: The End of the World as we Know It." Steyn's work is published in so many newspapers and magazines that I'm not even going to try to list them. We're going to talk about the thesis of his book and the state of free speech in Canada. Is liberal democracy willing to defend itself against the forces that oppose it? What will the future look like, in Canada and elsewhere? Is Europe destined to become Eurabia? You'll have to tune in to find out!

Two: Guy Sorman

SormanA former professor of economics, adviser to the Prime Minister of France, and a leading French intellectual, Guy Sorman is the author of "The Empire of Lies: The Truth About China in the 21st Century." An expert on China, the thesis of Sorman's book is that China's success is a mostly an illusion, one based on the brutal suppression of human rights activists and religious leaders. Sorman has spent decades visiting China and speaking with those who have been crushed in China in the name of progress.

As the jacket of his book states, "The Empire of Lies is perhaps the only book on China that lets the Chinese people speak for themselves."

Three: Jason Talley

TalleyAs the former chief of Bureaucrash and a libertarian activist, Talley is a genuine freedom fighter (he's on the left; check out the t-shirt: you can get one just like it from Bureaucrash!)  Along with other activists, he attended the recent "silent dance" at the Jefferson Memorial in celebration of the Founding Father's birthday. During that event, authorities unjustifiably arrested one of the dancers, and since then her cause has been taken up all over the libertarian (and non-libertarian) blogosphere. To learn more about this injustice, listen to Political Animals today, and check out "Free the Jefferson 1", the website Talley and others started to raise awareness of the issue.

As we said, an action-packed show! Please tune in at 4 pm Eastern time to listen. You can listen live, over the Internet, at this link. As always, feel free to phone in and ask questions. The toll-free number is 1-888-7-WBGUFM. You can also email questions to us at [email protected].
