An interview with James Bradley, author of The China Mirage

For many centuries China was the richest nation in the world. Then it was brought  low by the forced importation of opium on the part of Britain and the United States. But American missionaries persisted in the delusion that China's great need was western guidance and Christian religion. The Wise Men of Washington bought into the delusion, and all were shocked when the Communists under Mao Zedong defeated China's westernized elites.

Thursday, June 4 Per Fagereng will talk with James Bradley, author of The China Mirage. Bradley's father was one of the fighting men who raised the American flag on Iwo Jima, in a war that was born in delusion and duplicity.

Short Description: 
Un-American country music
America, in general, and Nashville in particular represents the home of country music. But the liberating spirit of country music is not confined by geographic boundaries. It is free ranging and international. It exists in the quiet country pubs of Ireland, the honky tonk bars of Western Canada and the dusty  outback of Australia. The only cost of entry is an open mind and the willingness to see beyond stereotypes and preconceptions. Please tune in Saturday as we celebrate Swing and Country un-american style. 

A Talk by Susan Griffin: "Sustainabilty and the Soul"

Short Description: 
Susan Griffin discusses shifts in Western culture needed for addressing climate change

Since climate change threatens the survival of life on earth, as we know it, why have we been so slow to respond? Addressing this complex question, writer and visionary Susan Griffin explores the false divisions our culture makes between body and soul, masculine and feminine, self and other that allow us to hide from our own knowledge. Invoking other traditions within both European and indigenous cultures that do not make the same divisions, she describes an alternate world view. This way of seeing is implicit in ecology and even within the physical structures of the human brain: the recognition that like a tree or a body of water, the soul does not exist in isolation.
