СrossTalk on Russia and China: The BEAR & The DRAGON

The Bear and the Dragon. Over the last few years Russia-China relations have grown in depth and magnitude. It is not hard to understand why. With Russia constantly demonized and sanctioned, and China targeted as a serious threat to western security, it's no wonder Moscow and Beijing have gravitated towards each other. This is much more than a ‘marriage of convenience.’

CrossTalking with Joel Ruet, Earl Rasmussen and Jim Rogers.

Is everything racist?

Politics is supposed to be about the art of the possible. This means compromises and tolerance. Sadly, this is no longer the case. Enforced speech and character assassination are now the rules of engagement. Today if you say the wrong thing, think a different thought – you must be silenced.

CrossTalking with Rina Shah, Remington Gregg and Antonia Okafor.
