224: How the Truth Becomes Illegal (Part 1) – The Spirit of ’76

Picture: The more things change... Topic: Part one in a series of shows inspired by recent current events involving the NSA, Prism, Edward Snowden and the barrage of leading questions from the mainstream media about the government's "legal" power to censor or silence the truth. This installment deals primarily with WWI, the Wilson administration and the Espionage Act of 1917, a very important (albeit absurd) precedent in the current legal conversation.

198: Student Question – Isn’t Compulsory School Unconstitutional?

Some new details on the history of compulsory schooling Topic: We discuss an email question from a student. It reads: I'm a 15 year old guy in 9th grade (in public school) and wanted to ask you a question. So if all people in America are supposedly guaranteed the rights to Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness, how is it not considered "unconstitutional" for kids to be forced to go to school? I do not want to go to school, so isn't that infringing on my liberty and pursuit of happiness? Discussion: -Court decisions on compulsory attendance in 12-step programs in the adult world -John Taylor Gatto's The Tyranny of Compulsory Schooling -Home Education Laws and Regulations -Defenses of ...
