Weekly live webcast/podcast devoted to discussion of news and politics from the perspective of Ayn Rand's philosophy, Objectivism. Hosted by Amy Peikoff.
A recent Fox News poll says that only 8% of Americans believe that "the people are in charge of the government." And, while the Constitution says the House has the power of the purse, Obama seems to think they should provide unlimited funding for him to create his egalitarian utopia. One NYT columnist is even urging Obama to ignore the rule of law and unilaterally raise the debt ceiling if the House Republicans demand concessions from him.
I don't know about you, but I find this attitude unacceptable. Join in on the discussion today, either by phone or in the chat room. Or, if you're listening to a podcast recording, chime in on my blog at www.dontletitgo.com.

Today, we meet with Chioma Oruh, a political scientist and activist, Ph.D. candidate, mother of 2 and sacred sexual healer. Here's what she'll be discussing with us:
"The past 500 years of maafa, colonialism and now neo-colonialism has been a true test of African masculinity. Traditionally and indigenously, the vast majority of pre-colonial African societies were matriarchal, Yet these mother-centric cultures co-existed with egalitarian and cooperative patriarchies that did not result in the abuse or oppression of the women, yet upheld the power of masculinity. Having experienced such traumatic experiences of the past 500 years has given a severe blow to Black masculinity as it is evident that they were unable to defeat the blows of white supremacy and capitalism. There are many social ways this defeat plays out in our lives and relationships. This program will explore those ways."

I will talk about the apprenticeship model of talent (also called the martial arts model of talent). I will discuss how it is different from and superior to the lone genius model of talent.
The apprenticeship model is based on a master and an apprentice. The master teaches the apprentice a skill by first making the apprentice copy the master, then pouring the spiritual energy (the talent) from the master into the apprentice to help the apprentice carry on the master's teachings. This is based on the metaphysical model of the portability of talent, with talent itself being contained in spiritual energy that flows through the master into the apprentice.
The lone genius model is based on a single practitioner of an art form who gets ideas without help from any person or source, including spirit. The creator depends on no support system and is thus only a benefactor. This turns the creator into God. Everyone outside of the creator is merely part of the audience, receiving the generous gifts of the creator and worshiping the creator as God. This produces the Cult of the Personality. Once the creator dies, the creator's gifts and talents die with him or her.
The apprenticeship model appeals autocratic at first, but it is really democratic and egalitarian. The lone genius model appears democratic and egalitarian at first, but it is really autocratic and is the basis of celebrity worship, kingdoms, and empires.

Featuring an interview with Chet Sisk, author of Welcome To A Cooler World. His new book is about the world we are about to step into after the transition of December 21st, 2012.

Envision This!….an alternative economic system that pays people, no matter who they are or what they are doing, in accordance to the time they invest in a job. Our guest will be Stacey Jacobson, the head of the MID-MAINE TIME BANK. The currency of exchange is time, accounted for by the hour, instead of moneyor direct barter. This is a very egalitarian system, valuing everybody’s hour the same, breaking down the class, age, and gender inequities in our current monetary system
