Phil was a passionate advocate of human rights. He joined us two decades plus years ago for a McCuistion TV program, Liberal, Objectivist, Conservative: Divergent Voices In America.
The program won a Telly Award; an award that showcases the best work in television and video. Each year they receive over 12,000 entries from all 50 states and 5 continents.
I thought you’d enjoy watching this program as it shows very diverse perspectives, without arguing or disrespect. Phil was masterful.
For those of you who have read my second book, The Absent Superpower, recent events in Ukraine should not come as a surprise. Chapter 6, The Twilight War, lays out how Russian geography and demographic realities would dictate Russian aggression in its immediate periphery. This is not a justification of Moscow’s aggression against its neighbor, but international watchers should not be feigning surprise.
