Mitchell’s guest today is colleague and long-time friend of Mitchell’s and A Better World, prolific author, internationally-renowned teacher and speaker, Andrew Harvey.
Andrew is Founder/Director of the Institute of Sacred Activism, an international organization focused on inviting concerned people to take up the challenge of our contemporary global crises by becoming inspired, effective, and practical agents of institutional and systemic change, in order to create peace and sustainability. Sacred Activism is a transforming force of compassion-in-action that is born of a fusion of deep spiritual knowledge, courage, love, and passion, with wise radical action in the world. The large-scale practice of Sacred Activism can become an essential force for preserving and healing the planet and its inhabitants.

As the US and EU continue to support fascists the worldover, especially in Ukraine, Russia, who had 10s of millions people killed during WWII, who defeated 90% of the Nazis by the time D-Day came on the beaches of Normandy, is celebrating its Victory Day where 75% of the populations of major cities in Russia were killed by Nazi siege. Putin's parents survivors of the Nazi siege of Leningrad, we discuss this day and the rise of fascism today from Greece to Ukraine, perpetuated by the IMF, NATO, US and EU. Chris Jay and Al Suarez of Stay Bold radio out of Voice of Rebellion radio will discuss this for a two hour show, callers welcome. Show starts 9pm eastern.
Put in the context of Divine Command Theory, the Euthyphro Dilemma results in two unpalatable conclusions:
1) God is not the greatest, as he must call upon a standard of good greater than himself. 2) God's commands are arbitrary, grounded on his whims, and thus could be commands that we ourselves find morally abhorrent.
The first conclusion results in the view that God cannot change what is right and wrong. Killing and stealing are inherently bad, so God, being inherently good, cannot command them. Yet if right and wrong are inherent to the action, regardless of God's decree, then God has nothing to do with the process. God doesn't set moral standards; he follows them, and is therefore only indirectly related to moral commands.
The second conclusion shows that God is free to decide what is good, and it is good by virtue of his decree. If this is the case, then God has no higher standard to answer to, and therefore his will may be seen as genuinely arbitrary. Although God once decreed that murder and theft are morally wrong, he might have declared the opposite just as easily, so then murder and theft would be right.
*The F-word is “fascism”. It’s tenets include supremacy of the military, the need for perpetual war and a disdain for pacifism, a merging of corporate and state power, dismantling the unions, indirect control of the media, national security and patriotism as a motivational tool for the masses, government corruption, candidates appointed by the party command, and an erosion of voter rights." Sound familiar? Media talks about capitalism, communism, socialism, libertarians, theocracies, and various systems in-between them. But the media never discusses fascism. Why? I first discuss the history of Fascism with one of the world’s leading experts on Fascism, Donald Sassoon – a professor of Comparative European History at Queen Mary, University of London. Then I am joined by two acclaimed talk show hosts, Egberto Willies of Politics Done Right and Bobby Rodrigo, of I Take LIBERTY With My Coffee as we dissect fascism tenet by tenet and examine them to see how they might apply to the United States. Please listen to this important conversation and judge for yourself. Could fascism occur in the U.S.? If so, what are you going to do about it? The Tim Danahey Show discusses economics, government, social issues, history, and non-fiction books in a magazine format featuring in-depth conversations with guests. Politics and inflammatory conversations are discouraged as they are divisive and counter-productive. Instead, the show seeks under-reported topics and delves into facts, different perspectives, and ramifications of each perspective. The show does not espouse a political agenda. Danahey’s strength is to take complex subjects, talk with experts and make them comprehensible and entertaining for average listeners.
