What We Believe: An Exploration of Values (Episode #108)

KQED World: Tue, Jan 22, 2013 -- 6:00 AM

What do we really mean when we talk about values? What is their source? How are they changing? Religion or faith, morality and responsibility, marketplace versus social good, the definition of "character"? Are there such things as common American values? Can we agree on common principles? Special Master of the Federal September 11th Victim Compensation Fund of 2001 Kenneth Feinberg discusses how the law values human life and how compensation can reflect self-worth in the eyes of the recipient, David Brooks talks about being a better person and Michael Sandel explores the role of money and markets in our society.

War & Peace in the Modern World (Episode #106)

KQED World: Tue, Jan 8, 2013 -- 6:00 AM

On the heels of the presidential debate, which at least in part focused on foreign policy, the discussions in tonight's episode are both timely and pressing. The show opens with Jane Harman, Craig Nixon, Michael O'Hanlon, James Steinberg, Dina Temple-Raston discussing America's future military role in the world. There are enormous challenges including climate change, education, economy, failed states, terrorism, and other broad issues that affect our security and international stability. How much is our national security embedded in these broader challenges? Should we be spending more or less on our military? When should we intervene? How often should we be using drones? Should we reinstate the draft or mandatory National Service? This episode explores significant questions about the nature of war and the potential for peace.
