CrossTalk Bullhorns: Energy crisis, really?

There are growing indications that Washington isn’t finished with Afghanistan just yet. Military involvement has come to an end, but not engagement. Also, we are told there is an energy crisis. Maybe this is part of the ‘Great Reset’.

CrossTalk: European dis-Union

When Europe is mentioned, what do you think of? A place? An idea? A common place with diverging ideas? Maybe you think of the European Union. Think what you wish, but Europe is in crisis. It must choose between being an ideological construct or a place with real people and real needs.

CrossTalking with John Laughland, Fabrice Epelboin, and Theofanis Exadaktylos.

CrossTalk: Military accountability?

The Biden administration’s decision to leave Afghanistan was correct and long overdue. However, the way America’s longest war ended is a different question. It was a botched affair. The generals will most likely never be held to account. But a lone Marine lieutenant colonel does face a court martial. Is this justice?

CrossTalking with Medea Benjamin, David Swanson, and Sara Flounders.

Crosstalk: Information dystopia

Can continued internet censorship and freedom of speech co-exist? This all-important question is being tested. How should misinformation be defined? Who should be allowed to make this determination? Today it’s about vaccines. Will it stop there?

CrossTalking with Nathaniel Bradley, Ryan Hartwig, and David Freiheit.
